-----------hardcover, about 11.25w x 9.5h inches, a Near Fine example, in a lightly rubbed near Fine dustjacket, looks close to new, signed without inscription by Charley Nadin, 197 + 3 pages, packed with colour photos, ---:What is left of a legacy of magnificent buildings, stunning architecture and artifacts of the golden era of the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia? What remains as ruins or fine architecture? These were places built in a desert where no infrastructure existed. The establishment of these places is a cornerstone of the history and wealth of the state which continues to this day. This is architecture of the gold rush. Doctor Charley Nadin recognised the value and historical importance to the nation of this golden architectural era. Charley photographed and virtually preserved these beautiful buildings during a twenty year relationship with the Eastern Goldfields. Fields of Gold is one man's contribution to raising greater awareness of a remarkable place at a remarkable time in Australian history"---The photographs in this book are a marvellous representation of Western Australia’s Eastern Goldfields. They are more than pictures, they are a record of the endeavours of people who founded the towns, settlements and mines of the area. The pictures are a display of something more than just dwellings and man made structures. They reveal people trying to find their place in the rather harsh landscape in an attempt to establish homes and identities. Their success is clearly seen in the pictures in this book. This collection of photographs is a combination of two levels of skill or artistry. The first level is that of the builders and people who lived and worked in these places. The second is that of the photographer who recognised the efforts of those early artisans and captured their labours for posterity. They are voices from the past and their struggle and achievement is on display. In other pictures, only sadness and pathos beyond belief is revealed, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

With the coming of World War I, nations saw something entirely new in war: the deadly effectiveness of underwater craft, with German U-boats threatening to starve Britain and bringing the United States into the war, thus proving underwater battles more important than the great battles fought on land. A generation later U-boats repeated the struggle in the Atlantic, while in the Pacific U.S. submarines literally put Japan out of business. Then in the nuclear age, the true submarine became the most powerful weapon of war ever created-the weapon that paradoxically kept the peace. ---Now, military historian Thomas Parrish tells the story of those who first dreamed of underwater ships; of the practical and ingenious inventors and engineers who created and developed the submarine; of visionary naval strategists; of famous skippers on all sides-steel-nerved men like America’s Dick O’Kane, Germany’s Reinhard Hardegen—who wielded this weapon; of the famous and infamous deeds of boats like the U-20, the Wahoo, and the nuclear-powered Nautilus and George Washington; and of the tragedies that befell boats like the American Thresher and the Russian Kursk. Parrish’s compelling narrative blends strategy, high policy, technology, heroism, and perilous adventure"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
