Sad that the author is no longer with us, but great that the publisher has produced a new posthumous edition with additional material provided by his sons and family. Pioneered by the Germans, vertical insertion by glider and parachute was to revolutionize land warfare. This personal account by a British glider pilot of the large scale airborne assaults by British troops is fascinating and very valuable – Most Recommended.
This book is a visual celebration of the achievements of the Army Service Corps in turning around the logistics disaster of the Crimean War into a modern supply system that, from 1902, provided a dependable supply system for the British Army. A fascinating story that is recommended.
From the greatest air battle of all time, the author has drawn the personal stories of two combatants, an RAF air gunner and a Luftwaffe night fighter pilot. This is a history that holds the readers attention like a novel. In this snapshot, the whole of the bombing campaign against Germany is laid out in graphic detail, very highly recommended.
A full account of SOE operations is unlikely ever to be written because some events were never documented and documents were lost or destroyed at the end of the war. This book is likely to be the best and most comprehensive account possible, being based on the previously unpublished report by a staff officer and former SOE member at the end of the war. Highly Recommended.
When most people talk about London being bombed, they are talking about the German terror attacks of WWII, but London has a unique history of being bombed from 1867. The author has produced a very readable account of this long history of bomb attacks on Londoners. It is a truly comprehensive account that considers the impact on one of the world’s greatest cities, much recommended.
