For more information on any of these books (these are ones I have stock-checked recently) please contact me.

I have to mention one of these books in particular has it appears to be rare in any format. That is “The Valley of the Shadow by Hugh Oloff De Wet.

Oloff de Wet’s memoir as a British volunteer pilot during the Spanish Civil War, and considered one of the most descriptive and best accounts by a republican flier during the War. Oloff de Wet (1912-1975) was an RAF trained pilot who grounded out from an accident, worked as journalist and pilot in the Second Italo-Ethipian War (Second Italo-Abyssiann War), and after fighting in the Spanish Civil War, would later become a spy in Prague before World War II. He and his wife were captured and tortured by the Gestapo, and his experiences would later be published as The Valley of the Shadow, Death Row. After his release in April, 1945 from a Nazi prison, he returned to London where as a portrait sculpture, he executed busts of Ezra Pound, Edmund Blunden, John Cowper Powys, Dylan Thomas, Robert Graves, and others.

I also would like to mention that Tunnelling to Freedom is a Reginald Head ( Cy Webb) cover.
