Inferno

B2353

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The seventeenth episode of the Kydd and Renzi Saga is about to reach the bookshops and forward orders are running well. You know an author has arrived when his or her name appears on the jacket ahead of the title and in equal size font. This is another cracking yarn that will keep readers turning the pages to the end. It is as fresh as the first episode, “Kydd”. An exciting tale from the premier author of naval fiction. If you haven’t read an earlier book don’t delay, you won’t regret it. If you have read earlier episodes you don’t need me to tell you how good the story is. Most Highly Recommended.

The Fatal Fortress, the Guns & Fortifications of Singapore 1819-1956

B2352

Most of the coverage of the of Singapore’s defences has concentrated on the brief battle when a larger British and Commonwealth force surrendered to the Japanese generals who had been surprised by the surrender. Coverage of the defensive guns and fortifications has been relatively modest and usually confined to comments that the guns pointed seaward and were of little use against an attacker coming out of the jungle. The author has made a fine job of describing the history of Singapore’s defensive artillery from the founding of the city, to the demise of Coastal Artillery in the British Army in 1953. A very interesting read that is recommended.

This is the most comprehensive coverage of the British Army from 1939 to 1945 ever undertaken in a single volume. It is lavishly illustrated and works carefully through each of the organizations that made up the British Army, including the Home Guard, the secret Resistance organization, and Special Forces. Strongly Recommended.

British Warship Recognition, The Perkins Identification Albums, Volume II Armoured Ships 1860-1895, Monitors and Aviation Ships

B2349

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This is the second facsimile volume of the outstanding Perkins warship recognition set to be released. The publisher and the British National Maritime Museum have committed to publishing a full set of eight facsimile volumes of this unparalleled source of information. Realistically, the cover price, and even the aggressive early sale discounts, will limit the readership of books that will appeal to a very wide audience of professionals, historians, enthusiasts and all with any interest in British warships. If you can find the money, don’t delay but buy today. Very Highly Recommended.
