    What's Your Best Ever Book Find?

    I got lucky today when a bloke walked into a charity shop with 2 bags full of Third Reich/WW2 books. The woman on the counter said she couldn't accept them because they had enough books already but recommended another place up the road. However, I accosted the owner of the books outside and offered him a tenner for the lot, which he was delighted to accept since he told me he would most probably have thrown them in the next bin rather than traipse around any more shops trying to give them away!

    The only (slightly) disappointing note was that he said his dad used to have loads more of this stuff but had disposed of it all some years ago; I can only wonder what was in that lot!!

    Anyway, after a brief chat we did the deal and when I got home I found the following titles ...

    Berlin, The Downfall 1945 - Antony Bevor
    Stalingrad - Antony Beevor
    Blitzkrieg - Len Deighton
    Fighter (The Battle Of Britain) - Len Deighton
    Hitler: The Fuhrer & The People - JP Stern
    The Third Reich 1933-45 - Geoff Layton
    Armageddon: The Battle for Germany (1944/45) - Max Hastings
    Hitler's War - Heinz Magenheimer
    The Last Days of the Reich - James Lucas
    Forgotten Soldier - Guy Sajer
    Hitler - John Toland
    The Third Reich at War - Michael Veranov
    The Siege Of Berlin - Mark Arnold-Forster
    The last Battle - Cornelius Ryan

    ... that's 14 books in total and by far my most prolific haul ever!

    Mind you, my best single discovery to this day is a 1938 copy of Mein Kampf (in English) up in my late father-in-law's attic when we moved into his old house 3 years ago - I really couldn't believe it when that little gem appeared amidst all his old RAF flying documents In great condition too, and apparently awarded to him at school for a good piece of literary work he'd done.

    Is a good one, I have it too. I havn't really done any great buys, maybe with the Mästermyr chest book... I have some rare German and Norwegian books from WW2. Posted them in "show your rare books"thread.

    I accidentally found one in a book store. It's about the people called "barbarians" by the Romans and how they were actually more advanced and civilised than Rome itself

    Barbarians by Terry Jones and Alan Erreira
