Churchill’s Last Wartime Secret, The 1943 German Raid Airbrushed From History

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The assumption that modern history is meticulously recorded and all 
records are open is false. This new book reviews a German special 
forces raid on the British Isles that was concealed for 70 years 
and even today depends primarily on German archived materials. A 
provoking review that exposes one of WWII's long held secrets. 
Great Reading.

Images of War, The RAF Air Sea Rescue Service in the Second World War, rare photographs from wartime archives

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The Images of War series is always a visual delight, displaying 
some of the rarest images available, many seen for the first 
time by the public. This addition to the series maintains this 
very high visual standard and covers a subject that has received 
very little coverage in print before. Strongly Recommended.

Pyrrhus of Epirus

READ THE FULL REVIEW

When schools taught Ancient Greek and Latin, the study of Classics and Ancient History was a popular area of history. Many schoolchildren left with an understanding of the history of Ancient Greece and the movement of power to Rome. Today that has shrunk for so many to an understanding delivered by Hollywood that all too often provides great entertainment but very poor history. Here, the author has provided a portrait of one of the key figures of the period, often described as the Successor Kingdoms, as the City States of Ancient Greece were replaced by a rapidly growing and aggressive Rome as the centre of ancient power in the Mediterranean and beyond. A great read and an important work.

Menus, Munitions & Keeping the Peace, The Home Front Diaries of Gabrielle West, 1914-1917

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This is an interesting and entertaining collection of diary entries 
made during WWI. They have been edited by the diarist's great niece 
and provide a valuable addition to our knowledge of the Home Front 
during WWI. A Fascinating account of life on the Home Front. The 
drawings she made and the details she included in her diaries and 
letters whent far beyond superficial detail and potentially could 
have been considered a security risk. As a result, this is a book 
will appeal to a great many people beyond the readership of social 
history and human interest. Strongly Recommended.

Anders Lassen VC MC of the SAS

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The VC is a gold standard award for exceptional bravery in the face 
of the enemy, known around the world. The MC may be less well known 
outside Britain but it is a very high honour and to win three is 
exceptional. This is the story of a unique individual and has been 
told well. Very Highly Recommended.

Hitler’s Ardennes Offensive, The German View of the Battle of the Bulge

READ THE FULL REVIEW


The author has collected together and sensitively edited the 
thoughts and recollections of the key German Leaders. This 
exposes attitudes and capabilities of the German commanders 
and military leaders. In the process it does much to 
demonstrated why the Germans failed in the Battle of the Bulge 
and in the war. Extremely interesting and informative.
