18 Introduction By Karl Ludvigsen People's Car: British Intelligence Sub-committee (BIOS) Report: Investigation into the Design and Performance of Civilian and Military Volkswagens, 1938-46
London, United Kingdom The Stationery Office/Tso 1996 0112905552 / 9780112905554 First Edition Thus Hardcover New with No dust jacket as issued 8 3/4" x 11" 
Unread, unmarked. Pictorial cover. Attention all Beetle enthusiasts! Here is the very first technical design report on the most popular car in the world: the VW Beetle. Originally designed by Porsche as "a car for the people", the car was to go into production in 1939. But as a wartime measure a modified vehicle was commissioned for the German army and the Beetle saw action in WWII from the Eastern Front to the Western Desert of Africa.People's Car is a facsimile of the original technical report commissioned by the British Intelligence Sub-Committee after the war in 1947 and published by HMSO. Besides being a technical design report, the book helps to place the Beetle in its historical context. The appendix includes a translation of how to purchase the car using saving stamps. The facsimile was published in England in 1996 and it is OOP (out-of-print).

Battle: Normandy, 1944 : Life and Death in the Heat of Combat, Macksey, Kenneth
19 Macksey, Kenneth Battle: Normandy, 1944 : Life and Death in the Heat of Combat
London Grub Street 2001 1902304470 / 9781902304472 First Thus Hardcover New in New dust jacket 6" x 9 1/2" 
Unread, unmarked. Not a remainder. What really happens during battle is told by one of the men who saw combat in WWII. It is Normandy, July 28, 1944. Outside Caen, the Americans have broken through the German defenses. Six British divisions redeploy to join the American attack. The battle that follows involves infantry, tanks and artillery. The battle plans, which had seemed clear-cut and achievable, to the men fighting are a botched up nightmare. Some men fail—as human beings, as leaders, as comrades; some just do their duty, some excel. It is a battle like any other, where the resources of men are tested to the limit and each is faced with his own stark moment of self-revelation. In order to show the reader the true nature of combat, Ken Macksey has related authentic incidents played out by participants who have remained fictitious to protect the memory of the living and the dead. An experienced former officer of the Royal Tank Regiment who saw service from 1944 in Europe, India and the Far East, Macksey weaves a terrific story—part fact, part fiction—but a unique and brilliant insight into what really happens in the life and death of warfare. Battle was originally published as Anatomy of a Battle by Stein and Day in 1974. This is the 2001 edition published by Grub Street. The book is illustrated with drawings and maps, and it is NEW.; 206 pages
