READ THE FULL REVIEW

An impressively comprehensive account of a subject which is a lesser known part of the history of the Roman Church for many readers. The colourful Vatican’s Swiss Guards may be a familiar part of the impression left with visitors to Rome but the history behind them and their duties beyond the ceremonial is a fascinating story – Very Highly Recommended

Your Towns & Cities in the Great War, Barking and Dagenham in the Great War

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author, a former Essex police officer, has written a nicely 
researched account of two Essex towns in the Great War. Fifty years on from the 
Great War and Barking & Dagenham would have been regarded by many as 
part of the London industrial sprawl and Ford Motor Co in the UK. One 
hundred years on and the contraction of Ford, and other factors, has created a 
different place, but at the time of the Great War it was a markedly different 
place   –   Very Highly Recommended

British Military Test and Evaluation Aircraft, The Golden Years 1945-1975

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The FlightCraft series has proved extremely popular with model makers and engineers, but is attracting a growing readership because it covers subjects in visual detail not usually available. This series addition is described as ‘Special’ rather than carrying a series number. It is special tribute to the Golden Years 1945-1975 – Very Highly Recommended
