Hitler’s Ardennes Offensive, The German View of the Battle of the Bulge


The author has collected together and sensitively edited the 
thoughts and recollections of the key German Leaders. This 
exposes attitudes and capabilities of the German commanders 
and military leaders. In the process it does much to 
demonstrated why the Germans failed in the Battle of the Bulge 
and in the war. Extremely interesting and informative.

Spy of the Century, Alfred Redl & the Betrayal of Austro-Hungary

In war, and in the steps to war, single individuals frequently make 
significant contributions to the course of events through espionage. 
The nature of their craft often means that their actions go unnoticed 
for many years or, sometimes, for ever. This first full biography in 
English of Alfred Redl is a much under-told story that contains all 
the elements of a cracking fictional tale of spies. 
Strongly Recommended.

The Images of War series is based on lavish illustration, using rare 
photographs from wartime archives, but each book also includes a great 
deal of textual information in concise captions and extended captions, 
with longer overviews linking the photographic record. This book 
matches the highly successful series and the author is a highly 
experienced former defence intelligence specialist with a long list 
of top selling books to his credit, highly recommended.

Facing Armageddon, The First World War Experienced

In the two decades that have followed the first publication of this 
work, nothing has come to challenge it and this edition is therefore 
most welcome. It was a pioneering work and still is, presenting the 
scholarship of sixty four specialists and the real experiences of 
participants. It can fairly be regarded as a foundation work for 
anyone wishing to understand this epic conflict. Much Recommended.

Hitler’s Arctic War, The German Campaigns in Norway, Finland and the USSR 1940-1945

This book reviews what is almost a forgotten army. Norway was 
vitally important to the German war effort because it was a 
source of key raw materials. It was also an important front 
against the USSR. A very valuable addition to available knowledge 
about campaigns which have been under reviewed, highly recommended.
