As a former curator, the author knows his way around the outstanding collections of the National Maritime Museum. – This is a well researched, beautifully produced and impeccably illustrated work that will become a standard in its field – Highly Recommended.
An engaging and entertaining personal experience of a surgeon in Nelson’s Fleet. – Originally published by Chatham in 2006 and reprinted by the current owners of Chatham Publishing under the Seaforth imprint. A vivid picture painted with humour by one who was there – Most Highly Recommended.
More exciting ups and downs than a white knuckle Roller Coaster ride. – Another cracking
installment in the Kydd and Renzi Saga from international best selling author Julian
Stockwin – Most Highly Recommended.
The publisher has built a solid reputation by releasing a number of series of military history books with a high photographic content. This series promises to become as popular as the well-established Images of War series and similarly makes use of rare photographs, with full colour sketches and drawings to augment the photographs. The Cold War effectively began in 1945, but the Western Allies initially responded passively to Soviet expansion. The Berlin Blockade marked a new stage in the war and the Allies struck back brilliantly – Strongly Recommended.
This addition to the very popular Images of War Series is a special treat for aviation enthusiasts. The Spanish Civil War became an important proving ground for aircraft and armour as part of the German concept of Blitzkrieg. Over-shadowed by WWII, the Condor Legion in the Spanish Civil War has received little coverage – Highly Recommended.
A welcome addition to the very popular Images of War Series. This new book provides a remarkable selection of Spitfire images in US service. It includes some particularly rare full colour photographs – Highly Recommended.
After the end of WWII, the second Labour Government embarked on a program of managed decline for Great Britain. This started an indecent rush to abandon the Empire. Often described as the Mau Mau Rebellion, this saw Kenya engulfed in civil war as the Kikuyu sought to take over at the expense of other tribes and the Asian community – Strongly Recommended.
This is a very unusual story of a great eccentric. A linguist who developed extensive knowledge of Malaya and Indo-China. A fascinating read – Highly Recommended.
By happy accident, a shoe box full of photographs was liberated from a U-Boat pen at the end of WWII, hidden until recently, to be found once more. The author has provided a unique and graphic account of U 564. This is much more than a photo essay, with well researched and written text, supported by this unique treasure trove of images – Recommended.
