        Komunisticni manifest. [i.e. "The Communist Manifesto"].

      [Slovene Littoral, Printed for Agitprop, Presumably 1944]. Small4to. In the original stapled printed grey wrappers. Previous owner's name in light pencil to front wrapper and title-page. A few brown spots to title-page, otherwise a very fine and clean copy. 52 pp. ¶ Exceedingly rare Slovenian translation of the Communist Manifesto. This virtually unknown edition is not to be found in any bibliography nor on OCLC. The present edition of the Manifesto was printed and distributed by Agitprop, the Communist Party institution that controlled education, publishing, libraries and mass media from the end of World War II until 1952. Presumably the present publication was, if not the very first, then among the first publications made by Agitprop. Until the end of World War II Agitprop was essentially an underground movement whose goal was to pave the way for communism after the war. After the resistance in Slovenia started in summer 1941, Italian violence against the Slovene civilian population escalated and to counter the Communist-led insurgence, the Italians sponsored local anti-guerrilla units, formed mostly by the local conservative Catholic Slovene population that resented the revolutionary violence of the partisans. After the Italian armistice of September 1943, the Germans took over both the Province of Ljubljana and the Slovenian Littoral. They united the Slovene anti-Communist counter-insurgence into the Slovene Home Guard and appointed a puppet regime in the Province of Ljubljana. The anti-Nazi resistance however expanded, creating its own administrative structures as the basis for Slovene statehood within a new, federal and socialist Yugoslavia.In 1945, Yugoslavia was liberated by the underground resistance and soon became a socialist federation known as the People's Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Slovenia joined the federation as a constituent republic, led by its own pro-Communist leadership and Agitprop became the official mass media institution.Not in OCLC

        (map) The B-29's on Guam with Vectograph Glasses, Map, and a Photograph of Harbor and Four of Guam Natives

      1944. Edward Land began devising his Poloroid glasses just before World War II. As the Army Air Force needed to find ways to detect elevation, he helped them develop 3-D technology that first was used in bombing over Germany and then in the Pacific beginning with tests in the Aleutians. The reconnaissance planes began taking extensive aerial photographs of the Mariana Islands with an emphasis on Guam. General Haywood Hansell helped as the 3-D models prepared the way for the invasion of Guam and eventually Japan where the details helped B-29 crews in the Pacific recognize every steam, hill and industrial target in the Nipponest homeland. (see the Evaluation of Photographic Intelligence in the Japanese Homeland, Part One and Two. [Washington] Photographic Intelligence Section].Here is the photographic image of Guam, the enhanced image drawn up by the 947th Engineer AVN entitled: "The B-29s on Guam". The photographs measuring 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" show Apra Harbor in September 1945 and four additional photographs of the native huts and people. Included are a pair of Poloroid three-dimensional picture glasses and a glass frame 3-D Picture Viewer. The case for the glasses frame has become firmly glued to the original film image but the map can be seen in the film of Guam.

        Midshipman's Journal

      - Midshipman's Journal; small folio; original quarter cloth binding. 186 manuscript pages, three drawings, six hand drawn and two large folding maps and nine documents pasted in. The Journal of Midshipman J G Pike a Commando in the Royal Naval Reserve. The Journal chronicles the little recorded or noted tale of the Royal Navy’s role in the final defeat of Japan in the Pacific between March 1944 and August 1945. Covering Pike’s service on HMS Newcastle from March to April 1944 and on HMS Gambia from April 1944 until the end of the War. HMNZS Gambia served with the British Pacific Fleet, and participated in attacks on Japanese positions throughout the Pacific and supported a series of carrier raids against oil installations and airfields. She saw action off Okinawa, Formosa and Japan and took part in the bombardment of the Japanese city of Kamaishi on 9 August. She was under attack by Japanese aircraft at the time that a ceasefire was announced, and possibly fired the last shots of World War II. She was present on 2 September 1945 in Tokyo Bay for the signing of Japanese Instrument of Surrender. Rich in detail, this is a superb account of service in Royal Navy in closing months of the War. February 9th 1945.”Today Lord Louis Mountbatten came on board.The hands were fallen in on the quarterdeck and after the Supreme Commander had been introduced to the heads of departments he went to the microphone to give a speech. He made a very impressive speech.” May 5th 1945. “The attack on the carriers were carried out by Jap suicide bombers, in two waves of three. These planes followed our air strike back and came in absolutely undetected, all these planes were in flames before they hit their targets. One crashed on Formidable and another crashed but slid off. One near miss was obtained by Indomitable and another on Victorious. The rest were shot down.” 9th May 1945. “At about dusk one of the destroyers had sighted an object on the horizon. The object seems to be a huge splash in the water with smoke above it. It was later reported that the object was presumably a rocket plane.” 16th July 1945. “At 0500 today the American 3rd Fleet was sighted. It was divided into 3 groups. Each group consisting of 3 battleships, 5 carriers, 6 cruisers and destroyers. All told there were 102 American ships. The British Fleet totalled 24 ships.” 11th August 1945. “2 Atomic Bombs had been dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This new terrible weapon destroyed a whole city in one blast. No details have been released to give us any true picture of the actual damage. The rumours circulating are varied and many. Now we are hoping for the Japanese to surrender. The fleet was due to return to Sydney on the 9th, but owing to the sudden developments we were remaining in the area.” “Later in the day a general signal read that the main body of carriers would return to Sydney leaving the King George V, Indeatigable, Gambia and Newfoundland with the American Fleet in case ships were needed to enter Japanese ports. “ 13th August 1945. At 0830 today Admiral Halsey signalled “Line up for the last round”. 15th August 1945. “Early this morning rumours were rife that the Japanese had “packed up”. However, no official signal from Macarthur was received and a strike of 700 planes was flown off at dawn from all task force groups to attack Tokyo. At 0800 the strike returned with reports of heavy opposition from both flak and fighters over Tokyo. Ten aircraft from British carriers and 16 Americans were shot down.” "At 1129 a message was received from CTF which read 'CEASE HOSTILITIES AGAINST JAPAN'. At that same moment a Judy appeared dead astern flying straight at us firing her machine guns. There were a large crowd of men standing on the quarterdeck and soon as the plane was spotted, everyone immediately ran for their respective stations. No alarm was given. However two Seafires were close on its tail and the plane was blown to pieces over our foremast. It all happened in about one [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        World War II][Entertainers] Photo Album and Scrapbook Documenting the First U. S. O. Shows at non-U. S. Army Bases.

      Manitoba, Canada 1944 - 14¾" x 11¾". Full leather album, internally string tied. 100 pages, the first 27 with 70 black and white photos and five items of ephemera adhesive mounted; the rest are blank. An additional 55 photos and two items of ephemera laid in. Most photos measure 4" x 5". Photos in album are captioned, others are not. Album externally good: lacking the back strip and with significant edge wear and losses at corners; internally near fine or better. Reggie Gardiner was a well known comedic stage actor and mimic in England before hitting Broadway and ultimately tackling Hollywood. His first Hollywood movie was in 1936 and he appeared in over 100 films as, according to an obituary, "the amiable ass. " He was best known for his role in Chaplin's The Great Dictator and a news clipping in the album suggests he was more well known as a socialite, for a time acting as Hedy Lamarr's favorite escort. This album documents Gardiner's time as a headliner in the Kay Francis Show, which toured central and western Canada and Alaska for several weeks in February 1944, entertaining troops at around 50 American, as well as Canadian, camps. Many of these were in remote Arctic areas whose locations were kept secret and some of the men had not seen women for months. One of Gardiner's captions reads, "the picture on the opposite page is typical of the outposts we saw—as for instance Eskimo Point which juts out into the Hudson Bay simply miles and miles and miles from anywhere. " News reports stated that the events at Canadian military outposts were the first U. S. O. Performances outside an American military base. The album reflects infectious happiness injected into an exceptionally harsh climate. The photos include group shots, rehearsals and performances, a group of men dressed in drag, receptions and dinner parties, and the entertainers mixing with soldiers. Others show the troupe serving food to soldiers and visiting them in the hospital. One interesting shot shows Gardiner and another man gawking at a Vargas centerfold, while a great series shows the group outside with dogsleds, igloos, and Native American guides. Another shows Kay Francis sitting at a mess hall bench with soldiers while one shovels food into her mouth, and one image shows Francis on their plane doing her nails. The ephemera include a letter to Gardiner from the commanding officer, an NC-17 rated poem in Gardiner's hand and the first three leaves of the Eskimo Phrase Book For United States Armed Forces, a mimeo that does not exist on OCLC. There's also a map of North America with Gardiner's flight paths drawn in blue. A wonderful collection of well composed images, documenting this little known, and clearly successful, attempt to bring warmth and joy to troops way up north.

Turner while serving with the Royal Air Force (R.A.F.) in World War II between 1942 and 1944. Turner split his time with the Air Force between the R.A.F. station in Leeming, North Yorkshire, India, and Durban, South Africa. The photos show Turner with a number of different units including the men of the Number 14 and Number 7 squadrons posed for group photos around various bases including Skegness on the coast of England. Number 7 was also referred to as the "pathfinder force" and was used to scout bomber locations and eventually mark targets for Bomber Command. Turner then found himself with the 429 Transport Squadron, originally formed as a Bomber squadron combining Canadian and English pilots.The base at Durban was used as a training facility by the Royal Air Force during the war and Turner is pictured here with other trainees in a rickshaw, among native South Africans in traditional clothing, and watching Zulu dancing. One page entitled, "studies of African native life," shows a collection of commercially produced photography of the native Africans Turner was seeing including "Piccannins at meal time," "a Maxosa in meditation," and "native hairdressers in South Africa putting on the finishing touch." Turner takes snapshots of Bombay and Karachi with images showing the police directing traffic, the Bay of Bombay, and the Taj Mahal Hotel. Two photos show Karachi before and after a monsoon. They traveled throughout India to various cities including Jodhpur, and Allahabad as well as the Pakistan city of Lahore. These photos show R.A.F. boys with local railway officials, at the museum at Lucknow, and impersonating "Sikhs" which involved wearing a turban and posing as a yogi. Towards the end of the album the men are seen enjoying Christmas and a State dinner at Headquarters with snapshots of jovial officers after a drink or two. The album ends in 1944 and according to online war records Turner was captured and kept as a prisoner of war until the end of the conflict, although it is not clear who he was held by.An extensive collection of an R.A.F.
