Air Raids on South-West Essex in the Great War, Looking for Zeppelins at Leyton

The 1914-18 Great War saw the first real use of air power. Balloons 
had been used for escape and for observation in earlier wars, but 
this was the first time that fleets of aircraft had been used for 
attack and defence. Highly Recommended.

The Silent Attack, The Fallschirmjager Capture The Bridges of Veldwezelt, Vaoenhoven & Hanne 1940

The Battle of France depended on surprise attack by large mechanized 
and armoured forces. This depended on attack through Belgium, and 
that depended on overwhelming the Belgian forts guarding key river 
crossings.  The authors have produced an enthralling account of how 
German Special Forces fought to take and hold the key river crossings 
to allow the main German Army to swarm into France. 
Very Highly Recommended.
