The very popular Your Towns & Cities in World War Two, is expanded with this important war target, Glasgow.

One of the neglected areas of WWII history is the use of horses and mules, the main attention being focused on all the new weapons that appeared in huge numbers and revolutionized warfare. The Red Army and the Wehrmacht both made extensive use of the horse to draw artillery and supply wagons across the vast expanses of the Soviet Union. The Red Army made great use of cavalry which played a major role in eventual victory – Very Highly Recommended.
The stories of Ancient Greece reach a peak with the story of Alexander the Great and that of his conquest of the known world before an early death.

This book is based on the official Battle Summary No 33, providing an accurate report of the landings and the progress of the battle.

The author provides an excellent review of one of the most neglected, but vital, elements in the military capabilities of the expanding British Empire.

However those ships could only operate with reliable bases and those bases had to be defended – Very Highly Recommended.
The author has an engaging writing style that brings this period of conflict to vivid life. The year following the demise of the paranoid Nero was one of the most turbulent in the history of Ancient Rome – Most Highly Recommended.
