Death March Through Russia

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.

Infantry Small Arms of the 21st Century, Guns of the World’s Armies

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.
