The Baby Killers, German Air Raids on Britain in the First World War

B1879

With the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI less than a year away, there is a rapidly growing number of books reaching the market, covering aspects of that war. Some may be a little dubious, but this is one of the books that demand to be read. The author has set out the background and execution of the German terror bombing raids on British cites, with the second half of the book providing a gazetteer of the places bombed.

A Century of Air Power, The Changing Face of Air Warfare 1912-2012

B1877

Every author faces a number of questions when setting out on a writing project. There may then be external influences, particularly from a publisher, and every author faces the challenges of fitting everything into a limited amount of time and budget. When the book reviews a hundred years of military aviation, fitting it all into 198 pages, including the index, is a considerable task. Overall the author has produced a very interesting book that does reasonable justice to the subject and is a worthy addition to any library bookshelf. Within his own specialist knowledge, the author has provided an important and authoritative account of COIN operations and recent campaigns. Elsewhere, the challenges of the brief show through to anyone who has specialist knowledge in those areas, which is to be expected.
