Defeat at Sea, Bekker, C.D.
1 Bekker, C.D. Defeat at Sea
U.S. Ballantine Books, Inc. 1955 #183. First Ballantine Book Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good Plus. 
$.35 is the original price. 184 pages. Mostly light beige paper. Tight binding. Yellow colour on the edges.
Frtont Cover: A couple of curved indents are at the top right corner but they're very light and nothing serious. A couple of finger indents from opening the Cover are at the middle of the right edge.
Spine: A couple of minute tears are at the bottom edge and a tiny piece of Cover's missing at the top right of the Spine.
Back Cover: Five or six finger indents and four or five tiny dot indents. So so marks.
Story: The Germany Navy from 1939 to the 1945 end of the war. They mention their new subs at the end of the book. Probably the U.S. and Brits used the information they got from the Germans just as they used the German rocket Scientist information. I think that we were lucky we were able to out produce the Germans or we'd be speaking German today and working as Slaves for the Master Race. Nicht wahr? 004728

When the Kissing Had to Stop, Fitz Gibbon, Constantine
3 Fitz Gibbon, Constantine When the Kissing Had to Stop
U.K. Pan Giant Books. 1963 #X186. Third Pan Books Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Good. 
Three Shillings Six Pence is the original price. 252 pages plus Advertising. Darker beige paper.
In General: Various handling marks on both Covers but the Spine's Fine. A few pages between page forty-five and fifty-three have bends but they're nothing much.
Story: They're not kidding in their Blurb about this book as it's depressing to browse. The Russians, Chinese, crime groups, Nazis and Baddies of the world take over in England and other areas and set up their usual methods of population control with concentration camps and general other "methods". I wish people in the world would wake up to how things are really going. Again. The book's depressing to browse. Maybe it's better you don't buy the book.Seriously. 004956

Front Cover: Minor shelf wear on the edges and a slight " x 1" indent's at the top right edge.

Story: Forester wrote this book based on information gathered after the war ended about the attempted assassination of Hiter in his War Bunker by various Generals who wanted to get rid of him so they could approach us about stopping the war and saving Germany from the destruction they feared would soon happen. In light of all the massacers and destruction the Nazis caused and their utter ruthlessness toward people they conquered I doubt that we would have accepted anything except complete capitulation and there were too many Nazi fanatics who probably wouldn't have accepted this. As is, depsite all the bungling that went on on all sides the Nazis came damn close to conquering the world as they were developing weapons so far in advance that we had nothing to beat them with. So..... 004625

D Day the Sixth of June, 1944, Howarth, David
5 Howarth, David D Day the Sixth of June, 1944
Pyramid Books. #511-02032. Fifth Pyramid Book Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good. 
June, 1969. $.75 is the original price. 256 pages. Light medium beige paper. Tight binding. Orange on the edges.
Front Cover: Three creases but two are very small. The third one's about 3" and seems to be just a slight bend from opening the book. The edges have small bits of wear.
Spine: A 2" indent's at the middle of the right side but this is due to uneven Folios when the book was manufactured. A bit of light wear's at the edges.
Back Cover: Light wear at the edges and some handling marks from holding open the book are at the middle. Nothing much.
Story: When Hitler started World War 2 he was able to drive out the Allies and conquer all of Europe. But in 1944 Eisenhower led the Allied armies and they invaded Europe and forced the Nazis to eventually surrender. Fifty million people died in the war because Hitler thought that Germans were meant to rule the world as they were the "Aryan Race" and all others were inferior to them and only fit to be their Servants and workers. A sort on Untermensch as they arrogantly liked to call Jewish people. The Nazis were a depraved bunch. 004962
