Mau Mau Rebellion, The Emergency in Kenya 1952-1956

READ THE FULL REVIEW

After the end of WWII, the second Labour Government embarked on a program of managed decline for Great Britain. This started an indecent rush to abandon the Empire. Often described as the Mau Mau Rebellion, this saw Kenya engulfed in civil war as the Kikuyu sought to take over at the expense of other tribes and the Asian community – Strongly Recommended.

U-Boat War Patrol, The Hidden Photographic Diary of U 564

READ THE FULL REVIEW

By happy accident, a shoe box full of photographs was liberated from a U-Boat pen at the end of WWII, hidden until recently, to be found once more. The author has provided a unique and graphic account of U 564. This is much more than a photo essay, with well researched and written text, supported by this unique treasure trove of images – Recommended.
