It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.” — William Tecumseh Sherman.

If war is hell, then what is publishing books about war? In these trying times, it might not be heaven, but our noble endeavor is still an few rungs up the ladder from the flames of perdition. In the hellish moments of small arms firefights or the massive machinations of long sieges and cross-country campaigns, the narratives that reveal themselves are often amazing or tragic or nearly unbelievable and practically impossible.

75 years ago, the world was in the thick of it—a global conflict involving more than twenty nations and millions and millions and millions of people. Yet, the end was in sight, when on September 2, 1945, Japan formally surrendered. As time marches there are few left from the greatest generation to tell their stories personally. It’s good we have so many books written both by and about those who served, those who sacrificed and those who saved the world.

The story of the top-scoring ace in history, a World War II Luftwaffe pilot named Erich Hartmann (1922–1993). Over 1,404 wartime missions, Hartmann scored 352 kills and his career was full of drama. There are the frostbitten fighter sweeps over the Russian tundra; drunken forays to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest; a decade of imprisonment in Soviet camps; and a second flying career during the Cold War that ended with scandal and unmet promises.

This is the story of an incredibly brave and effective team of men and women who overcame massive odds and helped end the nightmare of Saddam’s rule in Iraq. It is also the story of how incompetence, bureaucracy and ignorance threw that success away and condemned Iraq and the surrounding region to chaos that lasts today. Sam Faddis lives in Clifford, PA

$29.95 • Hardback • 96 pages 8.27 x 11.7 • illustrated • January 2020 HIS027100 • 978-1-61200-862-2

This account of Panzer Group 4’s advance was written by Walter Chales de Beaulieu, chief of staff of Panzer Group 4. Published in German in 1961, this is the first English translation. Beaulieu not only gives a detailed account of the Panzer Group’s advance, but also offers an assessment of the fighting, an examination of how Panzer Group 4’s operations were affected by the limitations imposed on Army Group North, and the lessons that can be learnt from its experiences in the Baltic States. He concludes with a discussion of whether Leningrad could ever have been taken.

The Battle of Kursk was the greatest tank battle of World War II and possibly in all history. Now, this new publication commemorates this battle. The text follows the course of operations of the Das Reich division, but also the other formations of the SS-Panzer-Korps. The narrative is based directly on German war diaries and from Otto Weidinger’s previous historical researches on the division. The hundreds of photographs, taken by German war correspondents following the SS units allow an intimate view of those tragic and terrible events.

This book brings together the stories of six former senior enlisted advisors to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Each tells in their own words how they got their start, how mentors encouraged them along the way, and how they eventually became the highest-ranking enlisted member in their respective service. With numerous invaluable lessons this is a book for junior service members, senior enlisted leaders, officers, and also those with no connection to the military.

The slang, the unique vocabulary of the soldiers and Marines serving in Vietnam was a mishmash of words and phrases reaching back to the Korean War, World War II, and even earlier. At the same time it used words and phrases reflecting the country’s changing protest culture at home, ideological and poetical doctrine, ethical and cultural conflicts, and racialism and the drug culture. The “slangrage” in Vietnam was made even more complex by the Pidgin Vietnamese-English used by Americans and Vietnamese alike. All is explained in this unique book.

Antietam. For generations of this word held the same sense of horror and carnage that the simple date 9/11 does for modern America. But Antietam eclipses even this modern tragedy as America’s single bloodiest day, on which 22,000 men were casualties in a war to determine our nation’s future. Antietam is forever burned into the American psyche, a battle bathed in blood that served no military purpose, brought no decisive victory. The action at the Cornfield was where the bloody Battle of Antietam turned.

Military and aviation history enthusiasts have always been interested in the fighter pilots of Hitler’s Luftwaffe. Some of their stories are extraordinary. This first volume of Day Fighter Aces of the Luftwaffe traces the story of the Luftwaffe’s day fighter arm from 1939–1942. Around 500 Luftwaffe fighter pilots were awarded the Knight’s Cross, accumulating huge numbers of missions flown. A similar number achieved more than 40 victories—more than the two leading USAF and RAF fighter pilots.

This second volume of Day Fighter Aces of the Luftwaffe traces the story of the Luftwaffe’s day fighter arm from 1943 through to the end of the war in Europe, covering missions over Russia in 1943, over the West and the Reich, the Eastern Front and the Mediterranean. Organized campaign by campaign, this chronological account interweaves brief biographical details, newly translated personal accounts and key moments in the careers of a host of notable and lesser known Luftwaffe aces.

Refusing to accept a life of continued poverty his sharecropper background would give him, William Greg earned his wings in 1942. He became a P-38 combat pilot and served in North Africa during the summer of 1943. Following the war, he served with a B-29 unit, then transitioned to the new, red-hot B-47 strategic bomber. Later he was assigned to command of the CIA’s U-2 unit at Edwards AFB. It was during that five-year command that “Greg” and his team provided critical overflight intelligence, including during the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis..

The Ninth Army landed at Utah Beach, France, on August 28 and 29 entered the fray in Brittany, taking over from General Patton’s Third Army, completing what Third Army had begun by late September. The Ninth Army then moved to the Siegfried Line alongside the First Army to the northern flank of the American lines and was the only American army to fight under British Field Marshal Montgomery’s command for several months, until the Rhine River was crossed. It made it all the way to the Elbe before the war ended.

Patton’s Third Army vaulted the Rhine with its customary elan, as did Devers’ Sixth Army Group. Ahead of the Allies were the remains of the German forces, often no more than Volkssturm or Hitlerjugend, determined to resist for as long as possible so that their Führer had time to unleash his super weapons. In the end, these proved figments of Hitler’s imagination and the defenders crumbled in the face of US units that had become deadly proponents of the art of aggressive warfare with modern equipment Large format and fully illustrated with maps and photos, this book continues the series below.

The dearth of doctrine and tactics for the employment of armored cavalry in a counterinsurgency situation was extremely challenging. Despite the thick jungle and monsoonal rains, despite the lack of doctrinal guidance, Blackhorse leaders found a way to overcome the obstacles and accomplish the mission. This is a history of the 20,000 young Americans who served in its ranks during the war.

Here collected stories define a new breed of soldier: the combat assault-helicopter crewman. 191st pilots, crews, and support personnel vividly share the details of what it is like to be at war. Their accounts of helicopter combat at the height of the Vietnam conflict accurately recreate the sights and sounds of the battlefields­—the fear and the horror. Their message is infinitely clear: The price of freedom is painful.

In early 1942, the Japanese were advancing on all fronts, humiliating their US, British and Dutch foes throughout the Asia Pacific. In a matter of just months, the men of the Rising Sun conquered an area even bigger than Hitler’s empire at its largest extent. They seemed invincible. Hawaiians and Australians were fearing a future under Hirohito. Fast forward to the end of 1943, and the tables had been turned entirely. A reinvigorated American-led military machine had kicked into gear, and the Japanese were fighting a defensive battle along a frontline that crossed thousands of miles of land and ocean.

Major General James A. Ulio never fired a shot in two major wars and he never led troops in battle. However, the Allies could not have won World War II without him. As Adjutant-General throughout the war, Ulio had a huge role. Through his efforts, the Army increased in size from 200,000 to eight million soldiers­­—a forty-fold increase in troop strength in less than five years. This book will give Ulio the credit he is due for his part in World War II.

The Lafayette Escadrille was an all-volunteer squadron of Americans who flew for France during World War I. Over one hundred years later, it is still arguably the best-known fighter squadron ever to take to the skies. In this work the entire history of these gallant volunteers is laid out in both text and pictorial form. It is a never-before-seen visual history­—now in paperback—that both World War I aviation aficionados and those with a passing interest in history will greatly appreciate.

With a focus on the conflict in the Pacific between the U.S. Navy and the imperial Japanese fleet, this book examines how aircraft carriers fought during World War II by first considering all the tools and building blocks of carrier operations, and then discussing the various battles that involved carriers to explore how carrier operations evolved during war. Every aspect of carrier operations is covered; from the technology used on the carriers and in aircraft including for navigation and communication, to what life was really like in the cockpit for the pilots. .

It is a little-known fact that during the Cold War, two U.S. Army Special Forces detachments were stationed far behind the Iron Curtain in West Berlin. The existence and missions of the two detachments were highly classified. Special Forces Berlin was a one of a kind unit that had no parallel. It left a legacy of a new type of soldier expert in unconventional warfare, one that was sought after for other deployments including the attempted rescue of American hostages from Tehran in 1979. Their existance was finally admitted to in 2014 and so their incredible story can now be told.

Simo Häyhä (1905–2002) is the most famous sniper in the world. During the Winter War fought between Russia and Finland in 1939–1940 he had 542 confirmed kills with iron sights, a record that still stands today. He has been a role model for snipers all over the world and paved the way for them by demonstrating their significance on the battlefield. For sniping Simo Häyhä only ever used his own m/28-30 rifle. Eventually his luck ran out and Simo received a serious head wound on March 6 1940, though he subsequently recovered. A true patriot, he epitomized the traits of a professional soldier.

In the summer of 1940, Britain stood alone. For three long months, brave young RAF pilots took off every day, ready to defend British skies against large-scale Luftwaffe raids. ‘The Few’ were young, but they were trained and they were determined. This pocket manual covers the training that these young pilots would have had, and the air combat tactics they were taught to use against the German raiders. It also covers the role of the ground crews, control and command systems, anti-aircraft defenses, and radar and raid detection.

In the early 20th century Britain opted for a third fighting force, an air force. A century later America has the capability to launch between 90 and 120 attack aircraft from each of its 16 nuclear carriers, which vessels refuel every twenty-five years. Two Navies Second to None compares the development of maritime air power in the British and American navies across the 20th and 21st centuries.

This is a major biography of Admiral Sir Bertram Ramsay, who masterminded the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in 1940. Initially, it was thought that 40,000 troops at most could be rescued, but Ramsay’s planning and determination led to some 330,000 being brought back. Later in the war, the invasion of Sicily in 1943 and of France less than a year later on D-Day were successful in large part due to his vision.

“We Seek the Highest” has been the motto of the thousands of Officer Cadets who, over ten decades, have passed through the rigorous training regime at the Royal Air Force College, Cranwell, Lincolnshire. The words embody the College ethos.

On 1 April 1942, less than four months after the world had been stunned by the attack upon Pearl Harbor, sixteen US aircraft took to the skies to exact retribution. Their objective was to bomb Japan’s capital—something its citizens were told could never happen! This is how it was done . . .

Originally released in 2012, Eagles of the Southern Sky was hailed worldwide as the first detailed history of a Japanese air unit to be published anywhere. It has since been translated into Japanese. The Imperial Japanese Tainan Naval Air Group enjoyed the highest prestige of any Japanese aerial unit in the Second World War. It was assigned to New Guinea in April 1942, confident of victory, having already conquered the Philippines and Netherlands East Indies. However, by mid-November 1942 only eighteen pilots from the original cadre sailed home from Rabaul, marking the end of an era.

The Pacific Profiles series presents the most accurate WWII aircraft profiles to date of Japanese aircraft in the “South Seas” theater. Volume One illustrates, by unit, Japanese Army Air Force aircraft operating in New Guinea and the Solomons from December 1942 to April 1944. In this theater numerous different aircraft types and their variants were assigned to two dozen fighter, bomber and support air regiments which formed the Fourth Air Army.

Trevor Royle examines Scotland’s role in the Second World War from a wide range of perspectives. The country’s geographical position gave it great strategic importance for importing war materiel and reinforcements, for conducting naval and aerial operations against the enemy and for training regular and specialist SOE and commando forces. Scotland also became a social melting pot with the arrival of Polish and eastern European refugees, whose presence added to the communal mix and assisted post-war reconstruction.

When the German army launched Operation Barbarossa it was expecting to easily defeat outdated and obsolete tanks and for the most part it did, but it also received a nasty shock when it came up against the T-34. With its powerful gun and sloped armor, the T-34 was more than a match for the best German tanks at that time and the Germans regarded it with awe. German Field Marshal von Kleist called it ‘the finest tank in the world’. Using original wartime documents author and historian Peter Samsonov, creator of the Tank Archives blog, explains how the Soviets came to develop what was arguably the war’s most revolutionary tank design.

Scotland paid a disproportionately high price in casualties, a result of huge numbers of volunteers and the use of Scottish battalions as shock troops in the fighting on the Western Front and Gallipoli. In this book, Trevor Royle provides the first full account of how the war changed Scotland irrevocably by exploring a wide range of themes—the overwhelming response to the call for volunteers; the performance of Scottish military formations in 1915 and 1916; the militarization of the Scottish homeland; the resistance to war.

Ready for harvest, the infamous Wheatfield would change hands nearly six times in the span of two hours of fighting on July 2, becoming a trampled, bloody no-man's land for thousands of wounded soldiers.

Signal intelligence is the most secret, and most misunderstood, weapon in the modern espionage arsenal. As a reliable source of information, it is unequalled, which is why Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters, almost universally known as GCHQ, is several times larger than the two smaller, but more familiar, organisations, MI5 and MI6. Nigel West traces GCHQ’s origins back to the early days of wireless and gives a detailed account of its development since that time. Nigel West is able to describe all GCHQ’s disciplines, including direction-finding, interception and traffic analysis, and code-breaking.

Written by the renowned expert Nigel West, this book exposes the operations of Britain’s overseas intelligence-gathering organization, the famed Secret Intelligence Service, MI6. In this meticulously researched new edition, operations undertaken by almost all of MI6’s overseas stations are recounted in extraordinary detail. They will fascinate both the professional intelligence officer and the general reader. The book includes organizational charts to illustrate MI6’s internal structure and its wartime network of overseas stations.

Vladimir Putin has tightly ruled Russia since 1999. Many fear and loath him for his brutality yet most Russians adore him for rebuilding the economy, state authority, and national pride. What drives Putin? He is a zealous nationalist deadset to make Russia great again. He mourns the Soviet Union’s breakup as ‘the greatest political catastrophe of the twentieth century.’ Putin has mastered the art of power. Depending on what is at stake, that involves the deft wielding of appropriate or ‘smart’ ingredients of ‘hard’ physical power like armored divisions, multinational corporations, and assassins.

By the end of 1942, Bormann was in effect Hitler’s deputy and his closest collaborator. With the Führer increasingly preoccupied with military matters, Hitler came to rely more and more on Bormann to handle Germany’s domestic affairs. On 12 April 1943, Bormann was appointed Personal Secretary to the Führer. Feared by ministers, Gauleiters, civil servants, judges and generals alike, Bormann identified strongly with Hitler’s ideas on racial politics, destruction of the Jews and forced labor and made himself indispensable as the Führer’s executioner.

After an attempt to assassinate Hitler in November 1943 failed, Stauffenberg developed a new plot to kill him at the Wolfsschanze, or Wolf’s Lair, the Führer’s headquarters on the Eastern Front. Besides the Fuhrer’s assassination, Stauffenberg organized plans to take over command of the Germany forces and sue for peace with the Allies. Though Stauffenberg’s bomb exploded as planned, in a conference room at the Wolf’s Lair on 20 July 1944, Hitler survived.

100 disparate objects together tell the moving and important story of Britain’s Home Front during the Second World War. The ordinary objects featured in this book, whether those produced in their millions to the far from ordinary or unique, all portray and exude the highs and lows of the British people during six years of war.

Because of its strategic importance, Malta suffered intensive aerial bombardment by the Luftwaffe and Regia Aeronautica. This memoir was written by the author as he and his fellow pilots battled against terrible odds and under constant attack. It is one man’s dramatic and moving account of the air battle to save Malta.

All the objects that a Royal Flying Corps pilot or airman was issued with for sorties over the Western Front during the First World War are explored in this book in high-definition color photographs, detailing everything from the differing flying clothing, to headgear, personal weapons, gloves, goggles and early life preservers.

Logistics have become a principle, if not the governing factor, in modern military operations. Armies need to be fed and supplied and the larger the army, the greater the logistical difficulties that have to be overcome. It was because the Romans developed a sophisticated supply system that they were able to maintain large armies in the field—armies that conquered much of the then known world. In this book the authors examine and detail the world’s first ever fully-developed logistical supply system—the forerunner of today’s complex arrangements.

It was not until 20 May, 12 days after the war ended, that Canadian forces landed on the island and finally put an end to the slaughter. A fascinating account of one of the last battles of the war.

The Battle of Cuito Cuanavale was waged between the apartheid South African Defence Force (SADF) and the armed forces of the communist MPLA government in Angola and the People’s Republic of Cuba. In this book, a South African military historian and retired journalist examines the campaign, the adversaries, and their achievements on the basis of his research in SADF archives. His scrupulous attempt at objectivity results in interesting conclusions. While the MPLA lost hands down, he posits a draw between the Cubans and the SADF. The analysis contains many lessons about mechanised warfare in the African context from which both laymen and military professionals alike may learn.

War of Intervention in Angola, Volume 3 covers the air warfare during the II Angolan War—fought 1975-1992—through narrating the emergence and operational history of the Angolan Air Force and Air Defence Force (FAPA/DAA) as told by Angolan and Cuban sources. Based on extensive research with help of Angolan and Cuban sources, the book traces the military build-up of the FAPA/DAA in the period 1975-1992, its capabilities and its intentions. Moreover, it provides a unique, blowby-blow account of its combat operations and experiences.The volume is illustrated with 100 rare photographs, half a dozen maps and 15 color profiles, thus providing a unique source of reference on this topic.

In 1970, East Pakistan voted for independence and armed rebellion. A quick and nasty counter-insurgency suppressed the rebellion. India, seizing the chance to change the balance of power, first backed East Pakistan, then on 21 and 22 November 1971 invaded with eight divisions. India planned also to attack West Pakistan to recover Kashmir. Pakistan attacked preemptively, and an all-out war resulted. East Pakistan was overrun by India on 16 December; the US and Soviet forced a ceasefire in the West only a day later. For the first time in 800 years, a predominantly Hindu army defeated a Muslim army. Ravi Rikhye tells the captivating story of the biggest military conflict fought beween between India and Pakistan to date, and the war that re-sulted in emergence of Bangladesh as an independent nation.

When the war ended in West Pakistan on 17 December 1971, PAF was still in the ring and on its feet. It had parried the enemy’s blows and had been ever so careful in its offensive responses. It continued to be fixated with remaining viable for providing complete air support to the Army’s all-important battle, which flowed out of the overarching dictum, ‘defence of the East lies in the West’.

RELATED BOOKS

The two warring parties thus repeatedly fought each other in battles and campaigns of unheard off size and intensity so far, inflicting telling blows upon one another, but with both failing to gain the upper hand in the long run—until the two sides entered into a new round of negotiations which halted the conflict—for a mere few months.

Suriname was forced into independence in 1975 by the Netherlands as part of its decolonisation program. Bureaucratic mismanagement by the democratic government led to disillusion amongst the Surinamese, resulting in a military coup by a group of disgruntled NCOs in 1980. Although receiving popular support at first, the newly created national military council soon started to rule with an iron fist, cracking down on the regime’s opponents and dealing with several counter-coups.

On 27 July 1990, a radical Afro-Trinidadian Islamist group, the Jamaat-al-Muslimeen, led by Imam Yasin Abu Bakr­—an Afro-Trinidadian convert to Islam previously known as Lennox Philip, and a former policeman —launched an armed insurrection with 113 of his followers. Their attack quickly sacked the entire leadership of the local government: the then Prime Minister of Trinidad, Arthur N.R. Robinson, most of his cabinet and several opposition Members of Parliament, plus the staff of the government-owned television and radio networks were held hostage for six dramatic days.

There have been many books on the conflict, but this is the first detailed military history using materials from both sides, as well as materials obtained from US intelligence circles and British governmental archives.

This account describes the battles in greater detail than before and, by examining them, provides unique insights and ends many of the myths which are repeated in many other accounts of this conflict.

Virtually born in battle, collecting precious combat experience and playinga part in so many conflicts, the Iraqi Air Force remains one of the most misinterpreted military services in the Middle East.

Leander Starr Jameson’s Raid failed miserably. It almost brought down the British Government, destroyed the career of one of the most eminent South African Statesmen, nearly caused a war with the South African Republic and exposed Britain to international ridicule.

The Hungarian War of Independence was one of the largest European conflicts of the 19th century, lasting a year, encompassing a dozen major battles and many smaller actions and sieges, with half a million men under arms by its end. Yet it remains strangely obscure and overlooked by the Anglophone world.

In France in 1870, Marshal Francois-Achille Bazaine, the commander of the French army that surrendered at Metz during the Franco-Prussian war, was held responsible not only for what was alleged to be a breach of military discipline, but also, by many in France, was believed to have been guilty of treason.

This is the first comprehensive studyof Gerhard Scharnhorst in any language. It uses the previous German studies as a starting point to present many unpublished discoveries about his youth, his education and training and his extensive service in Hanover.

This book covers the formative years of the first field marshal in the Corps of Royal Engineers, and his service in the Napoleonic Wars. The main theme of the book shows the development of a young officer from an inexperienced subaltern through to someone who advised Wellington and his generals directly on military matters.

The Army of George II is often forgotten, as 18th century British military history is bookended by the victories of the Duke of Marlborough during the War of the Spanish Succession and the final defeat of Napoleon by the Duke of Wellington.

This is the first account of this intensive campaign written in modern times; chronicling the many battles as the varying fortunes of the combatants saw their armies march to and fro across the fields of Flanders.

The world’s first truly global conflict erupted in 1740 over who would rule the Holy Roman Empire, with Europe divided between those who supported Maria Theresia of Austria against the claim of Charles-Albert of Bavaria.

The Battle of Villamuriel was the largest engagement of Wellington’s retreat from Burgos in 1812. Twice as many men were involved as in the better-known actions at Villadrigo/Venta del Pozo two days earlier.

This book is an in-depth study of the Danish and Norwegian armies of the Napoleonic Wars and provides a working document covering the uniforms of these armies, their weapons and their evolution as well as their colors and a look at their basic tactics.

When the opposing forces first met in the field, the result was ignominious rout and retreat. Nevertheless, eight months after the Rising began, the Jacobite cause went down in crushing defeat at Culloden. This book examines in detail some of the units that marched and fought for George II during this tumultuous period.

This unique book gives the reader the opportunity to learn about the motivation and the beliefs of these foreign Waffen SS volunteers by digging into their personal stories. Displaying standards of courage, discipline, and self-sacrifice which commands the respect of any soldier or historian they fought their way to a combat reputation and fighting power second to none. Their iron reliability led to their employment as a military fire brigade, rushed from sector to sector to shore up collapsing fronts just like they did in Pomerania.

Early April 1945 and the British Second Army is over the Rhine and advancing across the North German Plain. Unknown to the British, a new division formed from naval personnel and supported by a Waffen-SS battalion of Hitler Youth, and some of the last available Tiger and Panther tanks, has been deployed westwards to the Weser and charged with its defence. Despite their inexperience, these are well-motivated troops and determined to acquit themselves to the best of their ability in what will, in all likelihood, be their first and last battle.

Blood in the Forest tells the brutal story of the forgotten battles of the final months of the Second World War. While the eyes of the world were on Hitler’s bunker, more than half a million men fought six cataclysmic battles along a front line of fields and forests in Western Latvia known as the Courland Pocket. Just an hour from the capital Riga, German forces bolstered by Latvian Legionnaires were cut off and trapped with their backs to the Baltic. The only way out was by sea: the only chance of survival to hold back the Red Army.

The North African campaign was one of the hardest fought episodes of the Second World War, yet the vital part played by the Italian Army - and in particular, its Folgore Parachute Division on behalf of the Axis Alliance—is frequently overlooked Folgore Airborne Division fought on the battlefields of North Africa and distinguished itself at El Alamein despite inadequate equipment and weapons while facing unfavorable odds. This book describes a paratroop unit that earned the respect of its Allied opponents during some of the hardest-fought engagements of North Africa.

Crete, 20 May 1941: the first campaign-sized airborne assault is launched. Many books have been written about this famous invasion, with the emphasis mainly on the battles for Maleme and Chania. The Battle for Heraklion—an epic struggle —remained largely forgotten and widely unstudied. Yet the desperate fight for Heraklion had everything: street-fighting in the town; heroic attacks against well-fortified positions and medieval walls; heavy losses on all sides.

The Mongols created the greatest landlocked empire known to history. It was an empire created and sustained by means of conquest. Initially an insignificant tribal leader, Genghis Khan gradually increased his power, overcoming one rival after another. After he had subjugated all tribes of Inner Asia, he struck southward into China and later attacked distant Khwarizm in the Near East. Sübe’etei continued to make significant conquests after Genghis Khan died, conquering central China and leading a large force into the heart of Europe.

The construction of large oceanic submarines in the Empire of Japan was related to two basic facts. The first was the achievements in the Atlantic by the German submarines during the First World War. The second one, more important, was the concept of “Decisive battle.” For over thirty years—after the Battle of Tsushima—the central strategic concept of the Imperial Navy considered the United States of America as the potential enemy.

The Brandenburg class battleships were the first blue water warships of the Kaiserliche Marine and can be categorized as the first German pre-dreadnought ships. The Imperial German Navy was founded in 1871 under the auspices of Kaiser Wilhem I. Kaiser Wilhem II the architect of the German Naval expansion, decided to challenge England’s hegemony in the seas.

Petropavlovsk was part of the seven-ship unit of the Nikolaev type (project 1134B Berkut.)

The German heavy tank Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger is a vehicle known even to laymen. It was heavily armored and armed with a deadly 88 mm gun.

Ju 87 D (Dora) is another version of this popular dive bomber. Despite the weak armor and less sufficient performance, the Stukas were still produced due to the lack of a successor.

Junkers Ju 88 was one of the most universal aircraft taking part in the Second World War. It was designed as a fast bomber and it worked perfectly well in this role, especially during low-level airstrikes and shallow diving attacks.

The M3 General Lee was an American medium tank from the World War II era, also used by the British army. In the US, known as Lee, in the United Kingdom as Grant. The M3 tank was created as a result of the need to replace the obsolete M2 tank, which did not suit the WWII battlefield.

The SU-27 aircraft was constructed as a heavy interceptor fighter (light version was the MiG-29, which was submitted in the same competition).

In the 1930s, Americans began working on a modern vehicle for cavalry reconnaissance and artillery units in freshly formed armored and motorized units.

The need for such vehicles became apparent during the struggle against the Soviet Union and further from the North Africa campaign. In both cases in both casese the problem was towed weapons. The Jagdpanzer IV was seen as the answer to this problem

The designation of Nieuport is linked with the origins of aviation. Édouard de Niéport (August 24, 1879-September 16, 1911)—a pilot and designer—was one of the aviation pioneers. In 1909 he established the Société d’Aérolocomotion aircraft factory in Suresnes, manufacturing airplanes of his design. He was one of the few designers who preferred the monoplane layout with the smallest possible number of drag-increasing items.

By the turn of the events, at the very beginning of the first Balkan war, entirely unexpectedly an example of R.E.P type F fell into the hands of the Serbian Army. This example was ordered by the Ottoman empire, and when the war started it was crated in a railway wagon at the railway station in Toponica near Niš. Even though Serbia later had to pay for the confiscated example, “the present” was welcomed by the Serbian Army Command which hurriedly worked to equip and to organize its own air force.

The introduction into British army service of the Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank (MBT) was originally intended to take a mere eighteen months from design to production, but in the event, it took something closer to ten years. Why this was so is an important part of the Challenger 2 story, and although on the face of it this might seem to be a clear failure, it actually produced the most thoroughly tested and reliable tank ever to enter service with the Royal Armoured Corps (RAC).

The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was without doubts one of the most important airplanes in the history of aviation and since the beginning its history was linked to Spain. Only a few months since the maiden flight, three prototypes were sent to Spain to be tested during the Spanish Civil War and shortly after Spain bought E and F series. When Spain acquired the manufacturing license of the Bf 109 G-2 the history of the Messerschmitt Bf 109s made in Spain, began.

Israel Aircraft Industries manufactured 51 single and ten two-seater Mirage 5s, the IDFAF named them Nesher; after an outstanding performance in the Yom Kippur War, most were sold to Argentina in the late 70s. By the beginning of the decade, the Argentine Air Force was in the process of modernizing its fleet of combat aircraft. k, it began with bombers and the signing of the contract for the first supersonic jet FAA: the Mirage III.

The Gloster Gladiator was the very last biplane fighter to enter service with the RAF. Yet, despite being one of the fastest biplanes ever built, it was already obsolete upon its introduction to service in January 1937. Nonetheless, in the first eighteen months of WW2, it garnered many combat plaudits in the skies over the frozen Arctic, the sun-kissed Mediterranean, and the arid deserts of Africa. In Britain, it provided crucial defense of the RN Fleet anchored at Scapa Flow, and was among the first aircraft sent to France to aid the BEF.

Although built in fewer numbers than the PZL P.11, the PZL P.24 was for a period during the 1930’s the fastest and most heavily armed single-seat fighter in the world. Having acquired early notoriety at the Paris Salon with their innovative wing design, the P.24 represented the ultimate development of the family of fighter planes designed by Zygmunt Pulawski and saw service in the air forces of four countries: Bulgaria, Greece, Romania and Turkey.

Leo Marriot describes jet fighter development on the continent of Europe and in the Soviet Union during the early cold war. Using over 200 archive photographs he covers the pioneering German designs, then the range of experimental and operational fighters constructed by the Soviets, the French and the Swedes.

In a companion volume to his Early Jet Fighters: British and American 1944-1954, Leo Marriott describes, using over 200 archive photographs, the first decade in the development of the jet bomber. This was a time of intense technical innovation which transformed the design and capabilities of the bomber and gave birth to a range of classic military aircraft in the USA

On 18 October 1965, an ICSC aircraft, F-BELV, was on a regular weekly flight from Saigon to Hanoi. Twenty minutes after leaving Vientiane, the captain contacted the authorities at Hanoi to give his ETA, but the aircraft never arrived. It is believed to be the only aircraft never to have been recovered from the Vietnam War.

Located in an Observer Corps post on the top of a Martello tower on the seafront at Dymchurch in Kent, Mr E.E. Woodland and Mr A.M. Wraight were on duty on the morning of 13 June 1944. Shortly after 04.00 hours they spotted the first V1 flying bomb heading towards the south coast of England and a new kind of warfare had begun.

The era of the combat biplane is usually thought to have been between 1914 and 1938. By the outbreak of World War II, most of the advanced air forces of the world had moved on to monoplane aircraft for their front-line battle forces, both in bomber and fighter capacities.

In July 2018, the nation looked skyward over Buckingham Palace in awe as the Royal Air Force celebrated its first 100 years with a spectacular parade and flypast over London. This event demonstrated a very different perspective of the RAF; well away from its operational commitments.

When production ceased in the summer of 1945, a total of 10,926 C-47’s had been built. This wonderfully versatile aircraft played a significant part in airborne operations around the world; but perhaps its most notable employment occurred during the June 1944 Normandy campaign. This important episode within the wider history of D-Day is enlivened here in classic fashion by Martin Bowman, in a narrative that features both extensive historical notes as well as deeply personal accounts of endurance and individual gallantry.

Martin Bowman presents us here with an unparalleled account of events as they unfolded in the skies above Holland during Operation Market-Garden in September 1944. Market-Garden was a heroic failure conducted at great cost; combined losses—both airborne and ground forces—in killed, wounded and missing amounted to more than 17,000. Market, the airborne part of the operation, spanned ten Allied lifts in a calamitous nine days of operations, often in foul weather. Over the course of Operation Market, 4,050 aircraft saw employment; most of them towed the 1,205 Hamilcar and Horsa gliders and were confronted by an unknown number of Luftwaffe aircraft.

On 1 June 1943 Flight 777, a Douglas DC-3, en route from Lisbon to Britain, was shot down over the Bay of Biscay by German aircraft. On board was tax adviser Alfred Chenhalls who smoked cigars and looked remarkably like Winston Churchill. Did the Germans believe that Churchill was on board Flight 777? Other aircraft flying that route went unmolested by the Luftwaffe in spite of the German air presence over the Bay of Biscay.

LRPs were all volunteers. They were in the spine-tingling, brain-twisting, nerve-wracking business of Long Range Patrolling. They varied in age from 18 to 30. These men operated in precision movements, like walking through a jungle quietly and being able to tell whether a man or an animal is moving through the brush without seeing the cause of movement. They could sit in an ambush for hours without moving a muscle except to ease the safety off the automatic weapon in their hand at the first sign of trouble.

With rare, often unpublished photographs and full captions Hitler’s Heavy Tank Battalions provides a superb record of the Wehrmacht’s Schwere Panzerableilung on operations between 1942 and 1945.

Hitler’s Wehrmacht led the way in armored warfare as the successful blitzkriegs in Poland and North West Europe in 1940 so convincingly proved. The contribution of light tanks such as Panzers I, II and 35(t) was critical.

Early in the Second World War in Western Europe the German victors regularly photographed and posed with destroyed or abandoned Allied armor. During their invasion of France alone the Germans left 4,500 smashed French tanks in their wake.

After repulsing the Nazi’s daring Ardennes offensive, Montgomery’s and Bradley’s Army Groups cleared the Reichwald and Rhineland and closed on the Rhin river. With both sides aware of the strategic significance of this physical barrier the stakes could not have been higher.

The Italian campaign was one of the most debated of the Second World War, splitting the American and British allies, and causing great disharmony. After the fall of Rome and the surrender of Italy, the invasion of Normandy led to the Italian campaign becoming something of a sideshow.

By March 1945, the Red Army had closed in on Berlin. Marshal Zhukov, with almost a million soldiers and 20,000 tanks and guns at his disposal, launched his assault of the Seelow Heights. While costly with 30,000 Russians killed, it brought the Russian Army to the gates of the capital.

This Images of War title provides a detailed insight into the many US Navy submarine classes. Particularly fascinating is the post Second World War program of nuclear powered submarines starting with the Nautilius class and moving through to the present day.

At its height in 1968, the USMC had 86,000 men in South Vietnam. Almost 500,000 Marines would eventually rotate in out of South Vietnam during their typical one-year tours of duty. Vietnam cost the USMC 13,070 killed in action and 88,630 wounded, more casualties than they suffered during the Second World War.

During the Second World War five brutal battles were fought in and around Warsaw. Each proved to be dramatic, decisive and bloody, and in this volume of the Images of War series Anthony Tucker-Jones records them all in graphic detail with many previously unseen photographs.

This is Mansur Abdulin’s extraordinary story. His vivid inside view of a ruthless war on the Eastern Front gives a rare insight into the reality of the fighting and into the tactics and mentality of the Red Army’s soldiers. He describes what combat was like on the ground, face to face with the enemy.

The London Blitz and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor are iconic myths for Britain and America. Few in either nation realize, however, that these narratives of heroic resistance to aerial bombardment both conceal appalling massacres of their own citizens.

Adelbert Holl’s harrowing and vivid memoir of his seven-year ordeal as a prisoner in the Soviet camps is such an important record as well as an absorbing story telling as it does the events for many German prisoners of war after the momentous battle of Stalingrad.

In the South of France, the most memorable event of the Second World War was the sea and airborne invasion of 15 August 1944. Perhaps because it went relatively smoothly, this “Second D-Day” was soon relegated to the back pages of history.

From the parachutists and glider pilots landed behind enemy lines to the sappers, gunners, tank crews, signals, infantry, chaplains and surgeons—and the vast armada of ships and landing craft that brought them to the congested beaches—each has their own story of excitement

Often it is assumed that Hitler’s panzers stormed into action perfectly formed, driving through the armies of the Poles in 1939 and the French in 1940 and defeating them. The dramatic blitzkrieg victories won by the Wehrmacht early in the Second World War, in which the panzers played a leading role, tend to confirm this impression. But, as the author demonstrates in this illustrated, comprehensive and revealing history of the panzers, this is far from the truth. As armored fighting vehicles the early panzers were no better than, sometimes inferior to, those of their opponents, but their tactics rather than their technology gave them an advantage.

The memory of the Second World War on the Eastern Front, still referred to in modern Russia as the Great Patriotic War, is an essential element of Russian identity and history, as alive today as it was in Stalin’s time. As a result, as Boris Sokolov shows in this powerful and thought-provoking study, the heroic and tragic side of the war is highlighted while the dark side—the incompetent, negligent and even criminal way the war was run—is overlooked.

The author takes a closer look at the weapons, equipment and personal belongings of the soldiers who fought at the Western front, while sharing numerous personal anecdotes and moving stories.

The meteoric rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party cowed the masses into a sense of false utopia. During Hitler’s 1932 election campaign over half those who voted for Hitler were women. Germany’s women had witnessed the anarchy of the post-First World War years, and the chaos brought about by the rival political gangs brawling on their streets. When Hitler came to power there was at last a ray of hope that this man of the people would restore not only political stability to Germany but prosperity to its people.

Zhukov played a significant role in virtually all the principal battles on the Eastern Front during the Second World War including Moscow, Leningrad, Stalingrad, Kursk and Berlin.

During the Second World War, French wine was hardly a trivial product. Indeed, following the Fall of France, it proved to be one of the most valuable commodities in the eyes of the Nazi leaders. In 1940, ‘Weinführer’, were sent all over France to coordinate the most intense looting that the country had ever seen. Alongside the very ambiguous relationship of the Vichy Regime and the collaboration of many French professionals, this immense program of wine collection was a drama that many would prefer to forget.

Following the Battle of France in 1940, British Bomber Command launched its response to the then-almighty Wehrmacht. Bomber Command’s highly controversial bombing tactics, under the firm hand of Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris, continued to develop until the very end of the war, creating a weapon of devastation and terror. Meanwhile, in 1942 the Eighth American Air Force began a campaign of day time bombing raids on targets in continental Europe that would last until the end of the war.

The Holocaust is without doubt one of the most abhorrent and despicable events not only of the Second World War, but of the twentieth century. This book looks at the build up to the Second World War, from the time of Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor of Germany in January 1933, as the Nazi Party rose to power in a country that was still struggling to recover politically, socially and financially from the aftermath of the First World War. Some saw the dangers ahead for Jews in Germany and did their best to get out, some managed to do so, but millions more did not.

Alexey Isaev’s engrossing account brings together previously unpublished Russian archive material —strategic directives and orders, after-action reports and official records of all kinds—with the vivid recollections of soldiers who were there, in the front lines, he reconstructs what happened in extraordinary detail. The evidence he uncovers leads him to question common assumptions about the conduct of the battle—about the use of tanks and mechanized forces, for instance, and the combat capability, and tenacity, of the defeated and surrounded German Sixth Army in the last weeks before it surrendered. His gripping narrative carries the reader through the course of the entire battle.

Churchill’s Colonel The War Diaries of Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Barne Anthony Barne

The strategic importance of Malta sitting astride both the Axis and Allied supply routes in the Mediterranean was obvious to both sides during World War II. As a result the Island became the focal point in a prolonged and dreadful struggle that cost the lives of thousands of servicemen and civilians. After setting the scene for the action, this book tells the story of the Island’s stand against the might of the Axis powers that led to the unprecedented award of the George Cross to the whole island by King George VI.

Anthony Barne started his diary in August 1939 as a young, recently married captain in the Royal Dragoons stationed in Palestine. He wrote an entry for every day of the war, often with great difficulty, sometimes when dog-tired or under fire, and sometimes when things looked black and desperate.

Written by an authority on Adolf Hitler, this book charts new ground and shows how the writings of a deluded ex-monk, Lanz von Liebenfels and the pseudo-science of Liebenfels and other writers convinced Hitler that Germanys destiny was to save the world from a Jewish-Bolshevik conspiracy.

Based on documents from the Russian archives, this comprehensive study charts the tumultuous wartime relationship between Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, highlighting, in particular, the secret correspondence between the two leaders.

Hans von Seekt was from the traditional German officer caste, served with distinction on the war and became Chief of the Army Command at the Reichewehr Ministry of the Weimar Republic and Germany’s ‘supreme soldier’and major military strategist. His role was to re-build the shattered German army in face of the punitive terms of post-war settlement imposed by the victorious Entente Powers which drastically reduced its strength and imposed crippling financial conditions.

Why did the Spanish Republic lose the Spanish Civil War—and could the Republic have won? These are the key questions Alexander Clifford addresses in this in-depth study of the People’s Army and the critical battles of Brunete, Belchite and Teruel. These battles represented the Republic’s best chance of military success, but after bitter fighting its forces were beaten back. From then on the Republic, facing the superior army of Franco and the Nationalists, aided by Germany and Italy, faced inevitable defeat.

The differences and similarities between the Eastern and Western traditions are explored, as is the impact of the shifting balance of power in the region. The conclusions may surprise some readers.

Michael Mallett’s classic study of Renaissance warfare in Italy is as relevant today as it was when it was first published a generation ago. His lucid account of the age of the condottieri, the mercenary captains of fortune and of the soldiers who fought under them is set in the wider context of the Italian society of the time and of the warring city-states who employed them. A fascinating picture emerges of the mercenaries themselves, of their commanders and their campaigns, but also of the way in which war was organized and practiced in the renaissance world.

This is not just another retelling of the Fall of Constantinople, though it does include a very fine account of that momentous event. It is the history of a quite extraordinary century, one which began when a tiny of force of Ottoman Turkish warriors was invited by the Christian Byzantine Emperor to cross the Dardanelles from Asia into Europe to assist him in one of the civil wars which were tearing the fast-declining Byzantine Empire apart.

The Battle of Lepanto has long been considered one of the decisive naval battles of history. Yet, the savage fighting on Sunday, 7 October 1571 left the strategic map unchanged and the defeated Ottoman Turks were able to replace their losses and launch a new fleet the following year. Nic Fields re-examines the battle and concludes that it’s vital importance was psychological. It sank the perception of Ottoman dominance and the inevitability of Islam’s westward encroachment beyond the Balkans.

Williams tells his story of this almost forgotten war in graphic detail. Temperatures could drop to -45 with biting Siberian snow-laden winds. In the spring came the monsoons followed by a humid mosquito-laden period. The Welch Regiment at that time were part of the Commonwealth Division which allied to the American and Korean ROK armies were tasked with holding a line north of the 38th Parallel whilst politicians tried to broker a deal. As a lance corporal infantry signaler, the author was involved at all levels of operational and company activity and he gives the reader a real insight into the events and circumstances of war and the thoughts of a young man caught up in a desperate and dangerous conflict.

Cold War crescendo: in the author’s first three volumes in a series on battles of the Korean War, North Korean forces cross the 38th Parallel, rolling back US and South Korean forces into a small corner of the Korean peninsula. Months later, commander of the United Nations Command (UNC) in Korea, General Douglas MacArthur, launches a daring counteroffensive invasion at Inchon, enveloping North Korea. Despite a warning from Beijing that it will intervene if US forces cross the 38th, MacArthur uses the UN’s conditional authorization to land elements of the US X Corps at Wonsan and Riwon in North Korea after which the U.S. Eighth Army and South Korean forces capture the North Korean capital, P’yŏngyang

Until the development of a credible nuclear arsenal, it was possible to ignore North Korean posturing. But that is no longer an option as test firing proved that not only are other Asian nations directly threatened but the USA as well.

This is the most authoritative and comprehensive British account ever published of the brutal North Korean and Chinese mistreatment of British POWs during the Korean War.

With the rumble of men and mechanized equipment breaking the early morning silence, some 40,000 North Vietnamese troops advanced across the demilitarized zone into South Vietnam on March 30, 1972 in what would become the largest conventional attack of the war.

In the mid-first century BC, despite its military victories elsewhere, the Roman Empire faced a rival power in the east; the Parthian Empire. The first war between two superpowers of the ancient world had resulted in the total defeat of Rome and the death of Marcus Crassus. When Rome collapsed into Civil War in the 40s BC, the Parthians took the opportunity to invade and conquer the Middle East and drive Rome back into Europe. What followed was two decades of war which saw victories and defeats on both sides. The Romans were finally able to gain a victory over the Parthians thanks to the great, but now neglected, general Publius Ventidius.

In 136 BC, in Sicily (which was then a Roman province), some four hundred slaves of Syrian origin rebelled against their masters and seized the city of Henna with much bloodshed. Antiochus’ ambition was to drive the Romans from the whole of Sicily. The Romans responded with characteristic intransigence and relentlessness, leading to years of brutal warfare and suppression. Antiochus’ ‘Kingdom of the Western Syrians’ was extinguished by 132 but his agenda was revived in 105 BC when rebelling slaves proclaimed Salvius as King Tryphon, with similarly bitter and bloody results.

In this fascinating new investigation Rodney Castleden reconsiders all the evidence in order to establish the facts and give a historical basis to the most potent myth of ancient warfare.

This is a narrative military history of the emperors Lucius Domitius Aurelianus (‘Aurelian’, reigned 270-275) and Marcus Aurelius Probus (276-282) which also includes the other reigns between the years 268 and 285.

Religion was integral to the conduct of war in the ancient world and the Romans were certainly no exception. No campaign was undertaken, no battle risked, without first making sacrifice to propitiate the appropriate gods (such as Mars, god of War.)

Sejanus is synonymous with over-reaching ambition, murder, conspiracy and betrayal. According to the traditional storyline, this man craved the imperial throne for himself and sought it by isolating the naive emperor in his island pleasure palace on Capri whilst using his control over the Praetorian Guard, coupled with his immense power and influence in Rome, to purge the capital of potential opponents. Study of Sejanus has generally been overshadowed by focus on Tiberius. Here is a new appraisal of the sources to offer the first full-length study in English to focus on this highly influential figure and his development of the Praetorian Prefecture.

Anna Komnene and the Alexiad

The Celts enjoyed a formidable reputation as fierce and brave warriors, skilled horsemen and fine metalworkers. In 390 BC an alliance of Celtic tribes defeated a Roman army at the River Allia and went on to sack Rome and thenceforth the Romans lived under their threat. Such was their warlike prowess that, when not fighting their own wars, they were sought after as mercenaries by many armies, serving as far afield as southern Egypt.

Anna Komnene has been largely viewed as an angry, bitter old woman, who greedily wanted a throne that did not belong to her. This book aims to present Anna Komnene—the fascinating woman, pioneer intellectual, and charismaticc author—to the general public. Drawing on the latest academic research to reconstruct her life, personality and work, it moves away from the myth of Anna the conspirator and ‘power-hungry woman’. It places Anna Komnene in the context of her own time: the ancient Greek colony and medieval Eastern Roman empire.

The Third Samnite War (298-290 BC) was a crucial episode in the early history of Rome. Upon its outcome rested mastery of central Italy, and the independent survival of both Rome and the Samnites. Determined to resist aggressive Roman expansion, the Samnites forged a powerful alliance with the Senones (a tribe of Italian Gauls), Etruscans and Umbrians. The result was eight years of hard campaigning, brutal sieges and bitter battles that stretched Rome to the limit.

In response to a secretly preplanned Israeli attack in the Sinai, France and Britain intervened in Egypt as ‘peacemakers’. The invasion of Egypt was supposed to restore British and French control of the Suez Canal.

In the thirty years after the Second World War, the British army entered a period of intense technological development. Due to the lack of surviving documentation, this period is almost a second Dark Age.

This book tells the story of the battle for Goose Green - the first crucial clash of the Falklands war - through the eyes of the commanders, both British and Argentine, from brigadier to corporal.

Often considered as the darkest period of the Raj, the massacre helped galvanize the Indian Nationalist movement, making full independence inevitable. Yet both the Queen and former Prime Minister David Cameron have side stepped calls for an apology.

No previous studies have really concentrated on how the warfare was perceived by the men and women who took part—those who experienced the action at first hand. James Falkner has brought together a vivid selection of contemporary accounts of every aspect of the war to create a detailed picture.

With the accession of James II, and the religious politics of who might earn the English crown, they became embroiled in the Jacobite succession crisis, fighting in Ireland, then sent to France under Lord Mountcashel in 1689. With the fall of Limerick in 1691, Patrick Sarsfield led the second ‘flight’ of ‘Wild Geese’ to the continent.

Surprisingly, the last time mainland Britain was ever invaded was, in fact, in February 1797 when 1,400 drunken and out-of-control French soldiers from the Legion Noire landed on the north coast of Wales.

No previous book has given a comprehensive military account of the Jacobite Rebellioncampaigns in their entirety. The author uses vivid eyewitness testimony and contemporary sources, as well as the latest archaeological evidence, to trace the course of the conflict.

Despite notable losses, after the victory of Trafalgar in 1805 Britain dominated the seas. Although not the only means, her warships were the nation’s first line of defense that helped keep British shores safe.

Napoleon Bonaparte and Juliette Récamier were both highly influential and well-known in France, yet they were often at odds with each other. Their story played out on the European stage and is recounted here.

The Duke of Wellington’s victory at the Battle of Waterloo cemented his reputation as a great general and much subsequent writing on his career has taken an uncritical, sometime chauvinistic view of his talents.

Intelligence was just as important in the Napoleonic Wars as it is today. Then there was only one way of obtaining it by spies and informers. The author uses first hand accounts of three of Wellingtons most daring and successful Intelligence Officers.

The Battle of Quatre Bras was critical to the outcome of the Waterloo campaign to the victory of the allied armies of Wellington and Blucher, the defeat of the French and the fall of Napoleon.

Histories of the Light Division have tended to be incomplete, being based on memoirs of a few well known diarists, principally from the 95th Rifles. The authors of this book, the first volume of two, have sought memoirs from across the division.

And then, nothing. No further news was forthcoming. Angela Mond wrote to the Imperial War Graves Commission asking for further details but there was confusion.

The St Mihiel Offensive was the first full scale attack that was under the direct command of the Americans, in the person of General Pershing. He combined his command of the First (at the time the only) American Army with that of Commander in Chief of the AEF, a tremendous burden. The American attack (with the assistance of a French Corps) was an outstanding success and the Germans were forced into a rapid withdrawal to the Michel Line, a strongly defended position that formed the Hindenburg Line in this area.

Very little has been written about the four days which probably saved the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) from almost complete destruction. This is quite surprising, given the pivotal nature of the battle, for without the sacrifice of the battalions on the canal there would probably have been no evacuation from Dunkerque on the scale to which we have become accustomed, and the war may well have taken on a different outcome. The book looks in detail at the order of battle of the British and German units engaged and focuses on the four British brigades that fought on the canal.

Krithia was a key objective in the land offensives; a killing ground greater than Anzac or Suvla. This book adds to the Gallipoli story and the preceding Battleground books on that campaign by recounting not only the landings at Helles of 25 April 1915, but also the subsequent bitter battles that followed in an attempt to capture the village and the vital high ground of Achi Baba. The allies had little to show from their costly daylight frontal attacks, apart from a slightly firmer footing ashore and a growing casualty list. As the military situation looked to degenerate into a Western Front style stalemate, General Sir Ian Hamilton pushed for a final battle of Krithia.

On June 23, 1863, Rosecrans, with some 60,000 men, initiated a classic campaign of maneuver against Bragg’s 40,000. Confronted with rugged terrain and a heavily entrenched foe, Rosecrans intended to defeat Bragg through strategy rather than bloodshed by outflanking him and seizing control of Bragg’s supply line, the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad, at Tullahoma and thus force him to fight a battle outside of his extensive earthworks. It almost worked. Powell and Wittenberg mined hundreds of archival and firsthand accounts to craft a splendid study of this overlooked campaign that set the stage for the Battles of Chickamauga and Chattanooga.

The Civil War was not entirely over at Appomattox. The final campaign was in North Carolina and began on April 10, 1865, a day after Appomattox. More than 120,000 Union and Confederate soldiers were still in the field bringing war with them as they moved across North Carolina’s heartland. Sherman was still out to destroy the South’s ability and moral stamina to make war. The collision of these groups formed a perfect storm long ignored by those wielding pens and recording the history of the Civil War.

Benjamin Grierson’s Union cavalry thrust through Mississippi is one of the most well-known operations of the Civil War. The last serious study of this raid was published more than six decades ago. Since then other accounts have appeared, but none are deeply researched full-length studies of the raid and its more than substantial results. The publication of Timothy B. Smith’s The Real Horse Soldiers: Benjamin Grierson’s Epic 1863 Civil War Raid through Mississippi rectifies this oversight. Timothy B. Smith lives Adamsville, TN.

Months before Thomas Jefferson put pen to parchment, Paine’s publication energized a vast number of colonists to embark on a long and bloody war that imperiled their livelihoods and dismantled their cultural identity—all in the hope of creating a new nation constructed upon the concepts of liberty and independence.

Seceding from Secession includes a detailed discussion of the 1871 U.S. Supreme Court decision Virginia v. West Virginia and it is an indispensable source for everyone interested in understanding the convergence of military, political, social, and legal events that brought about the birth of the state of West Virginia.

Most studies of the Mississippi River focus on Union campaigns to open and control it, while overlooking Southern attempts to stop them. This book is the first modern full-length treatment of inland naval operations from the Confederate perspective.a fast-paced, well-crafted account that is sure to please the most discriminating student of the Civil War.

Few Civil War generals attracted as much debate and controversy as Pierre Gustav Toutant Beauregard. He combined brilliance and charisma with arrogance and histrionics. He was a Catholic Creole in a society dominated by white Protestants, which made him appear exotic next to the likes of Albert Sidney Johnston and Robert E. Lee. He was reviled by Jefferson Davis and often mocked by Mary Chesnut in her diary. Yet, he was popular with his soldiers and subordinates. Other than Lee, he was the South’s most consistently successful commander.

McClellan and his massive army were slowly making their way up the Virginia Peninsula to capture the Confederate capital and end the rebellion. The outnumbered and outgunned Confederates under generals “Prince John” Magruder and Joseph E. Johnston kept pulling back, drawing McClellan away from his base at Fort Monroe and further up the peninsula—exactly the direction McClellan wanted to go. But if they could draw him just far enough, and out of position, maybe they could attack and defeat him. Doug Crenshaw lives in Mechanicsville, VA.

The first jet fighter to enter service and see combat anywhere in the world, the Messerschmitt Me 262 was a deadly technological marvel—yet it was also difficult to produce, dangerously unreliable and extremely vulnerable during takeoff and landing. Despite these flaws, its graceful swept wings, aggressive shark-like profile and undoubted combat abilities made it a legend. The aircraft underwent rapid development during its short front line career and numerous unusual variants were designed and produced. German Secret Projects: Messerschmitt Me 262 Versions examines unusual production models alongside one-offs and drawing board projects.

The story of the Messerschmitt Me 109’s ultimate development, the Blohm & Voss BV 155, began in 1942 with plans to split the Me 109 family into three branches—a standard fighter, a high-altitude fighter and a carrier-based fighter. Initially these were known as the Me 409 but later became the Me 155 A, B and C. When Germany got its first taste of what the USAAF’s bomber force was capable of—suffering huge damage to its war-critical industries as a result of massed raids on its factories and cities—work on the Me 155 B was recommenced as a matter of urgency. With the Me 262 consuming most of Messerschmitt’s design capacity, the project was then passed on to a sub-contractor: Blohm & Voss.

The history of the Luftwaffe’s last minute single-jet fighter, the Heinkel He 162, is neither standard nor straightforward. Originally conceived as the jet fighter anyone could fly into combat, the He 162 was designed and built in under five months—an astonishing and unparalleled feat of engineering. But what emerged was not a simple jet fighter but a tricky ‘widow-maker’ which killed far more of its own pilots than it ever did those of the enemy. Going back to the original wartime documentation, author Dan Sharp examines the story of this remarkable aircraft in detail.

Renowned naval aviation author Matthew Willis tells the story of the Supermarine Seafire­—a navalized version of the famous Spitfire adapted for use on aircraft carriers. Some 2646 examples were built and saw action with the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm from November 1942 until after the Korean War in the early 1950s. It was involved in combat during the Allied landings in North Africa (Operation Torch), the Allied invasions of Sicily and Italy, the D-Day landings, and Operation Dragoon in southern France. With the Pacific fleet, the Seafire proved capable of intercepting and destroying the feared Japanese kamikaze attack aircraft.

As British and American forces closed in from the west, the Russians pushed in hard from the east, and the RAF and USAAF bombed Germany every night and day, the beleaguered Luftwaffe went all-out in a last effort to defend the Fatherland during the last months of the Second World War. Spitfires Over Berlin tells the story of the desperate battles that took place over the Western Front from January 1 to May 8, 1945. True stories of aerial combat, courage and daring from all sides of the conflict illustrate the dramatic tale of the war’s closing chapter—from the battle between the Spitfire XIV pilots of 350 Squadron and Fw 190s over the western fringes of Berlin to the murder of a downed P-51 Mustang pilot by civilians and carefully planned ramming attacks on American bombers.

Germany’s air ministry was quick to grasp the potential of the jet engine as early as 1938 and by 1939 several German aircraft manufacturers were already working on fighter designs that would utilize this new form of propulsion. Rocket engines too were seen as the way of the future and companies were commissioned to design fighters around them. As the Second World War began, the urgent need to bring these advanced new types into production saw a host of innovative aircraft designs being produced which would eventually result in Messerschmitt’s Me 262 jet fighter and the Me 163 rocket-propelled interceptor. And as the war progressed, efforts were increasingly made to find better ways of utilizing jet, rocket and latterly ramjet engines in fighter aircraft.

Dozens of top secret bomber designs were drawn up by the Germans during the Second World War, including gigantic flying wings, sleek jet bombers, asymmetrical bombers with the cockpit and weapons turrets on the ends of their wings and even enormous carriers for single-seat suicide bombers. Starting with Heinkel’s He 177, the most advanced bomber design of its day in 1936, author Dan Sharp looks at the huge variety of bomber projects produced during the days of the Third Reich, uncovering a host of original and previously unseen documents to offer an unrivalled look at bombers such as the Arado E 470, E 555, Junkers Ju 488, Focke-Wulf Ta 400 and Fw 300, Blohm & Voss P 163 and BV 250, Messerschmitt P 1107 and P 1108, He 343 and the so-called Daimler-Benz projects.

The cryptanalysts at Bletchley Park cracked the German Enigma code but how did the information they deciphered win the war? Breaking the Luftwaffe shows how the deciphered messages, known as ULTRA intelligence, informed almost every move of the USAAF’s Eighth Air Force bomber fleet from 1943 to the end of the war. Timely transmission intercepts told the Americans where and when Luftwaffe reinforcements would arrive so their airfields could be bombed, it revealed the exact location of hidden factories building the Me 262 jet fighter, it showed what targets the Germans would defend to the death and what they would allow to be destroyed.

When it appeared in the skies over Europe in 1941, the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A was the best fighter in the world. It was more than a match for the best Spitfires the RAF could field and began shooting them down in ever-increasing numbers. Only the introduction of the Spitfire IX with its two-stage supercharged Merlin overturned its supremacy. Alongside the Messerschmitt Bf 109, the Fw 190 is the iconic fighter of the Luftwaffe during the Second World War. It was hugely adaptable and fought on nearly all fronts, proving to be a formidable opponent. The Fw 190 F and G fighter-bombers effectively replaced the Ju 87 Stuka in the ground-attack role in the west and provided the Luftwaffe with much-needed additional capability.

The Junkers Ju 87 ‘Stuka’ was an aircraft with a single purpose—dive bombing the enemy. Attacking in this way had several advantages: it made the attacking aircraft more difficult to hit, it allowed pinpoint accuracy in the delivery of bombs and it struck terror into the hearts of anyone on the receiving end. After its early successes in the West, the Ju 87 went on to become a vital part of the war on the Eastern Front right up until the war’s end. In Eagles of the Luftwaffe: Junkers Ju 87 Stuka, historian Andy Saunders offers a detailed profile of this famous warbird.
