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.
Produced using unpublished letters home and contemporary accounts, the author has written an excellent account of Lord Hugh Grosvenor and his action at Zandvoorde. There are many rare and well-chosen images, maps and photographs to support the text. First Class Account.
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.
WWI history has been dominated by the trench warfare that was a result of the machine gun. The real innovation was in the air and at sea. A very well chosen photo-plate section supports the recollections of those that were there – Excellent and great reading.
