All war can be brutal and tragic, but the war between Germany and the Soviet Union was in a class of its own, a celebration of inhumanity. The author has provided a picture of this brutal conflict’s painful ending for so many German soldiers. – Most Highly Recommended.
The author starts each chapter with a short fictional scene that graphically sets the stage for the thoroughly researched historic detail. The story is told from the point of view of British seamen and civilians. – Highly Recommended.
A novel and rewarding approach in providing a comprehensive account of the Jacobite rebellions. This is a story of a family torn apart by religion and entitlement. – Highly Recommended.
A vivid account of an insurrection that shook the British Empire. The photo-plate sections add to the text with some very interesting images, many in full colour. – Highly Recommended.
A fascinating and exciting story of one of the areas of military service that receives very little attention from historians. The photo-plate sections adds to the text with some very interesting images. – Very Highly Recommended.
This book combines succinct text with lavish illustration. The photographs included in this excellent study include many very rare images. – Very Highly Recommended.
No one has yet replaced the WHB Smith epic Small Arms of the World but, in its field, this new book comes very close. The WHB Smith covered small arms from the earliest weapons to the latest in both military and civilian use with detailed notes on operation and field stripping. This book has a narrower remit but covers the latest development and in-service infantry small arms. – Most Highly Recommended.
This delightful book sheds light on the impact of war on women. The lives of most women in Britain changed significantly during WWII, but there are very few books that are dedicated to the lives and clothes. – Most Highly Recommended.
From a leading aviation historian with a solid track record for well-researched and illustrated studies of aviation history. The typical approach by historians is to argue that Arnhem was a gigantic failure, or to argue its merits, few of them spending much time looking at the part aviators played in the battle. – Very Highly Recommended.
