Acquisition of Property for War Purposes
 Picture
Publisher: United States Government Printing Office, 1944 Washington, DC.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "..In the past the military arm of executive power in time of war has very largely appropriated the necessary property without much regard to invoking orderly legal procedures, leaving the settlement of claims to future litigation. The resultant hardships to property owners and excessive costs to the Federal Government could very largely have been avoided if adequate legal procedures had been employed. In time of war the military have always felt that there is not time for the tedious processes of the law in the presence of a national emergency. This view has been conclusively answered in the present war in the acquisition of thousands of sites by the Lands Division of the Department of Justice. Even before Pearl harbor, legal procedures had been streamlined and put on an assembly line basis. At that time, opinions of the Attorney General as to the validity of title were being written in an average time of 6 days, and the filing of condemnation proceedings was so accelerated that sites anywhere in the United States or the territories were acquired in the average time of 4 days, 4 hours and 12 minutes, counting from the time the request was received in the Lands Division to the time when title or the right to immediate possession was vested by court order in the United States Government." xli + 158 pages with index. Book is in FAIR to GOOD condition; discoloration to pages; pages are otherwise clean; binding is very good. No dust jacket.

Blumenson, Martin  
Sicily: Whose Victory?

Publisher: N.Y., Ballantine Books [1969].
160 p., illus.; paper covers worn; good+. First printing. Ballantine's Illustrated History of World War II Campaign Book, No. 3. The invasion of Sicily was successsful beyond Allied expectations. Seizing the island's airports alone aided Mediterranean shipping and smashed the Axis sea and air forces with completely unexpected ease. The fall of Mussolini, the crack in the Axis alliance, the performance of American soldiers were all pluses. That German land forces were able to drag out their defence for 38 days using terrain, demolitions and mines gave unheeded preview of the Italian campaign. That so many German soldiers and so much equipment escaped was a failure that Blumenson was the first to suggest was a German victory. Among the editorial howlers in this volume is cruiser Philadelphia twice described as a battleship. Stock #27146. Vg/paperback. Military history.
