The Riddle of Crooked Creek

This is not listed on any site that I know of for sale. Lloyd Cole seems to have published a wide range of books but not in great numbers (only 86 listings on ABE). James Booth seems to have made contributions to compilations. This is typical of War Time publications (1944) in that it is a 32 page booklet. I don’t know what it is really worth despite being very rare, but I am willing to part with it for £10.00 (that includes UK P&P)

Popular Library Paperbacks from the ’50s

Most of these have good artwork on the rear covers as well as the fronts. There is a bit of a theme here (with at least a couple of exceptions), in these days I should probably not admit that I like these covers so I wont (admit it that is).

Of Their Own Choice – Capt. Peter Churchill D.S.O.

Of Their Own Choice – Capt. Peter Churchill D.S.O.

Corgi 1955 1st vg Of Their Own Choice was the first of three books describing his wartime experience in the French section of the Special Operations Executive. He describes his initial training at Warnborough Manor, near Guildford, in sabotage, Morse code, use of firearms, bridge demolition, and French military drill; and then to the Scottish Highlands near Mallaig, for map reading, orienteering, weapons and explosives training, close combat, and physical training; and then parachute training at Ringway near Manchester. The final training was at the Finishing School at Beaulieu Abbey in the New Forest where he learnt railway sabotage, inconspicuous behaviour, codes, cover stories, how to build up networks, and how to behave under interrogation. Of 14 people who began the training, Churchill was one of only three who graduated. He was assigned to the French Section in June 1941, and given his French identity card with a false identity. His first mission was to be infiltrated into the French Riviera by submarine in order to inspect three SOE networks in Antibes, Marseille and Lyons, evaluate their strengths weaknesses, assess their needs, and give them instructions. He was also to provide them with funds to continue their work. He was assisted by American agent, Virginia Hall. Having completed his mission he crossed the Pyrenees on foot and returned to the UK via Gibraltar to report back to SOE Headquarters.

NOTE PRICE DOES NOT INCLUDE POSTAGE

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.
