The author died in 1989, aged 90, but fortunately he took the time to write this enthralling account of one of the least told important stories of WWII. The Royal Navy attracted a wide range of very different individuals to the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve in the months before the outbreak of WWII. The author was a barrister who became a specialist in investigating German underwater weapons and neutralizing them – Very Highly Recommended.
The author followed a career in the Royal Navy with a period at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, as curator, before making a new career in writing about naval history. The Royal Navy assembled a Task Force that was sent to the Pacific at the ending of war in Europe. – Very Highly Recommended.
This revised anniversary edition is a very welcome edition, packed with insight and images. The Royal Navy assembled a Task Force in double quick time, sailed 8,000 miles and gave the Argentine bandits a drubbing – classic Empire Strikes Back. – Very Highly Recommended.
This is an important book that does justice to parts of WWII that have been largely forgotten. The Royal Navy in Eastern Waters played a critical role in the steps to eventual victory over the Axis countries. – Very Highly Recommended.
Many readers may only see women at war as those who played a critical role in two World Wars. This view may be coloured by the Christian and Norman attitude to women as second class citizens but, even then, women were at least victims of war and a very small number were more actively involved as monarchs and, occasionally, as fighters. In the ancient world, women were more closely involved, but not on the scale of those who served during two world wars. – Highly Recommended.
The Voices from the Past series has set new standards for history records. The selection of eye witness accounts has been impeccable and they have been reproduced, with sensitive editing, into a seamless and compelling account of courage, tragedy and the tumult of war – Most Highly Recommended.
The author approaches this titanic struggle from the question of why Hitler ever thought it was great idea. The research has been thorough and the author answers his question with compelling argument – Most Highly Recommended.
