The cold war : a military history by David Miller ( Book )
18 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From 1949 to 1991 the terrible potential of the Cold War loomed over the United States, the Soviet Union, and by extension, the rest of the world. The seeming certainty of global nuclear conflict defined and articulated the cultural, political, and, in particular, the military evolution of both nations. The Cold War provoked an unprecedented military buildup, and the rapidly advancing technology of warfare inspired fundamental changes in strategy and tactics." "Many books have been written about the politics of this turbulent period, but none have so comprehensively examined the conflict's strategy and tactics. Using newly declassified information, David Miller, a noted military historian, reveals not only the vast effect that Cold War technology had on the military, but also how the threat of war very nearly became a terrible reality. Chillingly, Miller reveals that while the menace of nuclear war dominated the military theory of the time, there was little in reality that corresponded to these theories. Miller goes on to examine the formation of the two great alliances, NATO and the Warsaw Pact, and the strategies and major weapons in the rival navies, armies, and air forces."--BOOK JACKET

Patrick O'Brian's navy : the illustrated companion to Jack Aubrey's world ( Book )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From the moment that Master and Commander, the first of Patrick O'Brian's sequence of 20 novels about the 19th century British Royal Navy officer Jack Aubrey and his surgeon colleague Stephen Maturin, was published in 1970, critics hailed his work as a masterpiece of historical recreation. Called "the best historical novels ever written" by the New York Times, the books have sold millions of copies. This first full-color illustrated companion to the Aubrey-Maturin series, timed to coincide with the release of the blockbuster Twentieth-Century Fox film adaptation starring Russell Crowe, explains the fascinating physical details of Jack Aubrey's fictional world. An in-depth historical reference, it brings to life the political, cultural, and physical setting of O'Brian's novels. Annotated drawings, paintings, and diagrams reveal the complex parts of a ship and its rigging, weaponry, crew quarters and duties, below-deck conditions, and fighting tactics, while maps illustrate the location featured in each novel." -- from publisher's website
