Red Star Against the Swastika, The Story of a Soviet Pilot over the Eastern Front

Although there are several books about Luftwaffe Stuka pilots, 
there is almost nothing about their Soviet counterparts. This is 
the extraordinary story of Vasily B Emelianenko, a veteran pilot 
flying the Shturmovik ground attack aircraft.

Menus, Munitions & Keeping the Peace, The Home Front Diaries of Gabrielle West, 1914-1917

This is an interesting and entertaining collection of diary entries 
made during WWI. They have been edited by the diarist's great niece 
and provide a valuable addition to our knowledge of the Home Front 
during WWI. A Fascinating account of life on the Home Front. The 
drawings she made and the details she included in her diaries and 
letters whent far beyond superficial detail and potentially could 
have been considered a security risk. As a result, this is a book 
will appeal to a great many people beyond the readership of social 
history and human interest. Strongly Recommended.

Pyrrhus of Epirus

When schools taught Ancient Greek and Latin, the study of Classics and Ancient History was a popular area of history. Many schoolchildren left with an understanding of the history of Ancient Greece and the movement of power to Rome. Today that has shrunk for so many to an understanding delivered by Hollywood that all too often provides great entertainment but very poor history. Here, the author has provided a portrait of one of the key figures of the period, often described as the Successor Kingdoms, as the City States of Ancient Greece were replaced by a rapidly growing and aggressive Rome as the centre of ancient power in the Mediterranean and beyond. A great read and an important work.

Images of War, The RAF Air Sea Rescue Service in the Second World War, rare photographs from wartime archives

The Images of War series is always a visual delight, displaying 
some of the rarest images available, many seen for the first 
time by the public. This addition to the series maintains this 
very high visual standard and covers a subject that has received 
very little coverage in print before. Strongly Recommended.
