Royal Navy’s Air Service in the Great War

The author followed a career in the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm, followed by a tour as curator at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, before becoming an accomplished author of naval aviation history. This new book is a substantial review of the RNAS during the Great War and includes a wealth of images to support the very able text – Most Highly Recommended.

Germany in the Great War, The Opening Year, Mobilization, The Advance & Naval Warfare

This is a volume in the Great War series from the German perspective. There is a wealth of photographic illustration and this is perhaps the most important book in the series because the war was to be won or lost in the first year – Highly Recommended.

A Waste of Blood & Treasure. The 1799 Anglo-Russian Invasion of the Netherlands

This is another part of neglected history and the publisher notes that it has not been covered for more than forty years. The author has addressed this deficit with a very readable account that is based on British, French, Dutch and Russian accounts – Highly Recommended.
