III. PROBLEM. Prepare a plan for the seizure and holding of Bear Mountain Bridge to forestall and prevent its destruction by the Aggressor. Office of the Unit Instructor 173d Organized Reserve Military Intelligence Group, SS-3 Section.
New York: 173d Organized Reserve Military Intelligence Group, Office of the Unit Instructor, SS-3 Section, 1949. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Other. Rare--very few of these training problem sheets have survived. Single 8 inch by 10.5 inch mimeographed sheet, with text on one side only. This has been folded in half and half again resulting in an approximately 5.25 by 4 inch object when fully folded. This sheet has been fully opened and placed in a clear plastic protective sleeve. On 24 June 1921, the unit was reconstituted as the Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC), 173rd Infantry Brigade, and was assigned to the Organized Reserve Corps and the 87th Division. It was reorganized in December 1921, redesignated on 23 March 1925 as the HHC 173rd Brigade, and redesignated as HHC 173rd Infantry Brigade on 24 August 1936. During World War II, the HHC 173rd Infantry Brigade was designated as the 87th Reconnaissance Troop in February 1942 and activated on 15 December 1942. Though the brigade in name did not exist during the war, the redesignation meant that it carried the lineage of the 87th Reconnaissance Troop, and when the brigade was reactivated, it would include the troop's lineage and campaign streamers. The troop entered combat in 1944 and fought in three European campaigns; central Europe, the Rhineland and Ardennes-Alsace operations. After the war, the troop reverted to reserve status and was posted at Birmingham, Alabama from 1947 until 1951. On 1 December 1951, the troop was inactivated and released from its assignment to the 87th Infantry Division.

Power and Diplomacy. Dean Acheson.
Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1958. Presumed First Edition/First Printing. Hardcover. 22 cm, 137 pages. Name in ink on flyleaf. Signed by the author. Fascinating read and insight into the times. This was the "new world order" before the one predicated by the collapse of the USSR. Acheson's goal is to persuade his readers to take the Soviet threat seriously, to concentrate power in American hands (given the limits, for example, of the UN), to maintain and strengthen alliances with free states, and to limit one's efforts to what is possible, rather than desirable. SIGNED.

The Canfield Decision. Spiro T. Agnew.
Chicago, IL: Playboy Press, 1976. First Edition [stated], presumed first printing. Hardcover. [6], 344, [2] pages. DJ is worn and soiled. Some edge soiling. Black mark on bottom edge. Spiro Theodore "Ted" Agnew (November 9, 1918 – September 17, 1996) was the 39th Vice President of the United States, serving from 1969 to 1973. He was the second and most recent vice president to resign the office, though unlike John C. Calhoun in 1832, Agnew left office in disgrace. Beginning in early 1973, Agnew was investigated by the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland on suspicion of conspiracy, bribery, extortion and tax fraud. Agnew had accepted payments from contractors during his time as a Maryland official, and the payments had continued into his time as vice president. After denying his guilt for months, Agnew negotiated a plea agreement that would involve his resignation from office. On October 10, 1973, Agnew pled no contest to a single felony charge of tax evasion, resigned his office, and was replaced by House Minority Leader Gerald Ford. Agnew spent the remainder of his life quietly, rarely making public appearances. He wrote a novel, and also a memoir defending his actions.
