The Nemesis File, Bruce, Paul
11 Bruce, Paul The Nemesis File
London, United Kingdom Blake Publishing 1995 1857821351 / 9781857821352 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket 6" x 9" 
Unread with moderate shelf and handling wear. A former British special forces soldier confesses and details his grisly participation in an Ulster death squad. Exciting, gripping action as the elite British military force, the SAS, sent four of their top soldiers, code named Nemesis, behind the lines to infiltrate the Irish Republic Army and execute unarmed IRA suspects in cold blood. Paul Bruce, a pseudonym, was one of the soldiers involved. The book reads like a finely crafted novel, with stories so chilling, you won't believe that it's the truth. This book caused a major stir when published in Britain in 1995. It's an astonishing insight into the role of the SAS in the bitter conflict of Northern Ireland and a devastating indictment of British government policy toward the IRA.

13 Burnett, Charles J. ; Dennis, Mark Scotland's Heraldic Heritage: The Lion Rejoicing (Discovering Historic Scotland Series)
Edinburgh The Stationery Office 1997 0114957843 / 9780114957841 First Edition Paperback New 6" x 9" 
New, unread, pristine in every way. An introduction of the art of heraldry that disentangles the complex code which heraldic devices represent. The book examines the origins of the heraldic symbols and the rules that govern the continued existence of heraldry in Scotland - firmly adhered to and upheld with the weight of law. The complex designs, each speaking silently, the lineage of their holder, are miracles of compression, encoding information on family, status and history in brilliant form. This book enables everyone to crack the code and read the symbols, at the same time marveling at their color and vibrancy and at their survival, speaking to us as much as any other historic artifact of past ages and lives. Scotland's Heraldic Heritage: The Lion Rejoicing is illustrated in full-color and shows sculptured and painted panels, the royal arms, devices to ensure ownership and demonstrate lineage and alliances.; 104 pages
