Carthage’s Other Wars, Carthaginian Warfare Outside The ‘Punic Wars’ Against Rome

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Historians have neglected the story of Carthage and its position as a Mediterranean Super Power, concentrating attention on the ‘Punic Wars’. Although the story of the ‘Punic Wars’ was important to the Romans, notably because they eventually won when Carthage failed to support its outstanding general Hannibal, it is just one small part of the rise and dominance of Carthage. – Most Highly Recommended.

Heroes of Coastal Command, The RAF’s Maritime War 1939-1945

READ THE FULL REVIEWS

The RAF record in maritime warfare is mixed but its crews served with distinction, courage and determination, making an important contribution to survival and ultimate victory. The politicians decided in 1918 to summarily dispense with the RFC and the RNAS, drafting their personnel into the new RAF which was given a monopoly of military aircraft ownership with some disastrous consequences – Highly Recommended.
