100 Days to Victory


How the Great War Was Fought and Won
Saul David

Summary
A totally original, utterly engaging account of World War I-the first book to tell the story of the "war to end all
wars" through the events of 100 key days between 1914 and 1918

The history of any war is more than a list of key battles, and Saul David shows vividly how World War I reached
beyond the battlefield, touching upon events and lives which shaped the conduct and outcome of the conflict.
Ranging from the young Adolf Hitler's reaction to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, through a Zeppelin
raid on Scarborough, the tragic dramas of Gallipoli, and the battlefields of the Western Front, Saul David brings
people and events dramatically to life. This is a 360 degree portrait of a global conflict that stretched east from
the shores of Britain to the marshes of Iraq, and south from the forests of Russia to the bush of German South
Hodder & Stoughton East Africa. Throughout his gripping narrative we hear the voices of men and women both eminent and ordinary,

1914: The Year the World Ended


Paul Ham

Summary
Few years can justly be said to have transformed the earth, yet 1914 did. The story of the outbreak of World
War I.

In July of 1914, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia, Britain, and France were poised to plunge the world into a
war that would kill or wound 37 million people, tear down the fabric of society, uproot ancient political systems,
and set the course for the bloodiest century in human history. In the long run, the events of 1914 set the world
on the path toward the Russian Revolution, the Treaty of Versailles, the rise of Nazism, and the Cold War. Here,
award-winning historian Paul Ham tells the story of the outbreak of WWI from German, British, French, Austria-
Hungarian, Russian, and Serbian perspectives. Along the way, he debunks several stubborn myths. European
leaders, for example, did not stumble or "sleepwalk" into war. They fully understood that a small conflict in the

24hr Trench
A Day in the Life of a Frontline Tommy
Andy Robertshaw

Summary
During the Great War millions of men lived in the trenches of the Western Front. It is almost impossible for us to
really understand how they coped in such a confined space with the constant terror of enemy attack. Now,
Andy Robertshaw and a group of soldiers, archaeologists, and historians use official manuals and diaries to
recreate their daily lives, answering the questions: How do you go to the loo? How do you wash your clothes?
How clean can you really get in a trench? How easy is it to sleep? How do you keep yourself entertained? and
many more. Hour-by-hour, the Tommy's day unfolds through stunning colour photographs in this groundbreaking
experiment in Great War history.

24hr Under Attack


Tommy Defends the Frontline
Andrew Robertshaw

Summary
Ten million military personnel died during the Great War. Many millions of them experienced horrendous enemy
attacks on entrenched positions that stretched across France and Belgium, as well as the Eastern Front. This
groundbreaking book relives 24 hours of an actual Platoon under attack, using their War Diary to follow the
assault hour-by-hour. A team of historians and archaeologists reconstruct the fighting, revealing how the British
Tommy defended their hard-won positions against heavy fire and enemy attack. Through stunning color images
the full experience of these frightening assaults comes to life. We follow the Platoon over a 24-hour period during
which Tommies are wounded and evacuated for medical treatment, we see their response to the assault and
their strategy to repel the attackers. This truly is Great War history brought to life.

A Hilltop on the Marne


An American?s Letters From War-Torn France
Mildred Aldrich

Summary
A unique civilian's eye-view of World War I, depicting, through heartfelt letters from an American woman, a
fascinating before and after picture of a French community in disarray

What looked impossible is evidently coming to pass . . . I silently returned to my garden and sat down. War

will read it in the States, far away from it, but war right here-if the Germans can cross the frontier.

A Hilltop on the Marne is a collection of letters written by Mildred Aldrich, an American expatriate who had
bought a country farmhouse near Paris in the spring of 1914. Writing to her friends back home, she describes her

A Short History of the First World War


Land, Sea & Air, 1914-1918
Gordon Kerr

Summary
As the war is slipping beyond living memory, this concise history helps ensures that the conflict is never
forgotten

WWI, lasting just four years from 1914 to 1918, was without parallel, the first true global conflict in which all of
the earth's great powers participated. This book tells the story of this cataclysmic event. It describes the
background to war, the international rivalries and conflicts of the previous decades that led to the nations of
Europe forming virtual armed camps, the relentless build-up of military and naval hardware that characterized the
early years of the 20th century, and the great figures that tried to prevent conflict or enthusiastically pushed
for it. Each year of the war is dealt with in its own chapter, the battles, various battlefronts, and important
Oldcastle Books incidents described and analyzed for their impact on the conduct of the war. The book also examines the last

Anzac Girls
The Extraordinary Story of Our World War I Nurses
Peter Rees

Summary
By the end of World War I, 45 Australian and New Zealand nurses had died on overseas service, and over 200
had been decorated. These were the women who left for war looking for adventure and romance, but were soon
confronted with challenges for which their civilian lives could never have prepared them. Their strength and
dignity were remarkable. Using diaries and letters, Peter Rees takes us into the hospital camps and the wards
and the tent surgeries on the edge of some of the most horrific battlefronts of human history. But he also allows
the friendships and loves of these courageous and compassionate women to enrich their experiences, and ours.
Profoundly moving, this is a story of extraordinary courage and humanity shown by a group of women whose
contribution to the Anzac legend has barely been recognized in our history. Peter Rees has changed that
understanding forever.

Back in Blighty
The British at Home in World War One
Gerard J. Degroot

Summary
A powerful and moving portrait of a nation under stress, Back in Blighty examines what life was like
back at home while WWI was being fought in the trenches.

World War One had a devastating, cataclysmic impact on the world and the British people. As its reverberations
were so long-lasting and significant, it is easy to assume that the social consequences were as profound. In this
highly readable and moving survey of life back at home during the First World War, Gerard DeGroot challenges
this assumption, finding pre-war social structures and ways of life were surprisingly resilient. Despite economic
and technological changes, the British people found ways to cling onto their usual ways of life as much as
possible in this new world.

Battle Story: Cambrai 1917


Chris McNab

Summary
Everything there is to know about this battle, legendary for its experimental use of artillery, infantry, and tanks

The Battle of Cambrai has become synonymous with one of the Allies' first large-scale use of tanks on the
Western Front. Cambrai certainly saw over 450 Mark IV tanks lumber across No Man's Land and penetrate the
Hindenburg Line. For the Germans on the other side of these defenses the sheer scale of these "iron monsters"
was terrifying, however they quickly rallied and the battle was about much more than the tanks deployed. Chris
McNab explores how new techniques of sound-ranging and artillery strategy played a greater part on the
battlefield than the tanks which have dominated the history of the battle. At dawn on November 20, 1917 more
than 1,000 guns fired on German positions and 400 tanks and thousands of men stepped out into the barren land
between the trenches. At first, it seemed that success was inevitable, with more than 5 miles of ground gained-

Battle Story: Loos 1915


Peter Doyle

Summary
The story of the Battle of Loos, which witnessed the first "big push" of World War I

The Battle of Loos saw a change in Allied strategy, which up until then had been a series of small-scale assaults
that achieved little or no ground gained. Loos was to be different, Kitchener's Army was deployed in strength for
the first time, and an ambitious plan aimed to take ground over a 20-mile front. However, the battlefield was not
the Allies' ideal site and the battle plans did not account for the lack of ammunition and artillery. To overcome
some of these shortcomings, the British deployed poison gas for the first time as they attacked, hoping to
confuse and overwhelm the German positions. The day of the attack supposedly saw the famous Footballer of
Loos, a soldier, Frank Edwards, setting out into No Man's Land kicking a football to rally his men. This myth has
remained an iconic image of World War I to this day. As the fog of war descended the first day's gains were lost

The Boys of Eton College and the First World War
Alexandra Churchill

Summary
A photograph of three friends on the football field, taken in 1912. Less than five years later all three would be
killed and buried beneath the fields of Belgium. This story is typical of many schoolboys across Britain who signed
up for or were conscripted to fight in World War I. In this groundbreaking new book, historian Alexandra Churchill
tells the story of World War I through the extraordinary band of brothers from Britain's most famous public
school, Eton, following them as they stepped out of the classroom, into the army and onto the battlefields
before they had left their teenage years behind. Beginning on the banks of the Thames as they worked and
played in privilege, the ghastly realities of war are retold in these moving pages.

Christmas in the Trenches


Alan Wakefield

Summary
The outbreak of war in 1914 was greeted with euphoria by many in Europe, and it was widely believed that the
conflict would be "over by Christmas." In the event, millions of men were destined to spend the first of four
seasons away from their families and loved ones. Amid the shortages, tedium, and dangers of life in the
trenches, those at "the sharp end" remained determined to celebrate Christmas as a time of comradeship and
community, a time when war could be set aside, if only for a day. Unlike the famous Christmas truce of 1914, the
Christmas experiences in other years and on other fronts have received scant attention. Alan Wakefield has
trawled the archives of the Imperial War Museum, National Archives, and National Army Museum to provide a
fascinating selection of first-hand accounts of the six wartime Christmases of World War I.

Evan's Gallipoli
Kerry Greenwood

Summary
Fourteen-year-old Evan Warrender travels with his father to the Dardenelles, where they intend to provide
succour to the Allied soldiers. When they are captured by the Turks, they are launched into an epic journey,
living on their wits and the kindness of strangers as they escape and travel through Turkey, back to Greece and
finally home to Australia. Along the way they meet unlikely friends and companions, some of whom have deep
secrets. And when Evan's own secret is revealed, we realize just how incredible the journey has truly been.
Evan's fascinating survival story takes readers beyond the frontline and creates an all-encompassing account of
this significant time in our military history. Impeccably researched, this is an eye-opening adventure story that
cleverly explores both sides of the war.

Fields of Death
Peter Slowe, Richard Woods

Summary
"Shell-fire was hellish all afternoon. . . the heat was intense. . . crouching in the trench, hugging the forward
side, one could feel every moment small stones and lumps of earth ricochet off one's helmet. Now and then one
would be almost smothered by the parapet being blown in. The dirt flying about and the fumes from the lyddite
added to our discomfiture. During a bombardment one developed a craze for two things: water and cigarettes.
Few could ever eat under an intense bombardment, especially on the Somme, where every now and then a shell
would blow pieces of mortality, or complete bodies, which had been putrefying in no man's land, slap into one's
trench. Shell-fire, too, always stirred up swarms of black flies, of which there was an absolute plague on the
Somme battlefields. . ." -Captain Francis Hitchcock, Guillemont, 1916

Fire in the Sky


The Australian Flying Corps in the First World War
Michael Molkentin

Summary
"I half rolled, and there before my eyes was as perfect a target as I had ever seen in my life. A pressure of a
thumb, a short burst, a puff of smoke, a flash of flame, a hole on the clouds-and it was over." -Lieutenant
Robert McKenzie, No. 2 Squadron Australian Flying Corps.

When World War I began in August 1914, airplanes were a novelty, barely a decade old. Despite this, Australia
was one of just a few nations outside Europe to establish a military flying school and corps. From a first class of
four student pilots the Australian Flying Corps would grow to number almost 4,000 by the armistice. Its young
volunteers were pioneers in a completely new dimension of warfare as they struggled for control of the skies
over the Western Front and Middle East. Using private letters, diaries, and official records, historian Michael
Allen & Unwin Molkentin reveals, for the first time in more than 90 years, the remarkable story of the airmen and mechanics of

How Chemistry Changed the First World War
Michael Freemantle

Summary
Reveals for the first time the true extent of how chemistry rather than military strategy determined the shape,
duration, and outcome of World War I

Chemistry was not only a destructive instrument of World War I, but also protected troops and healed the sick
and wounded. From bombs to bullets, gas to anesthetic, khaki to camouflage, chemistry was truly the alchemy
of the war. This history explores its dangers and its healing potential, revealing how the arms race was also a
race for chemistry, to the extent that Germany's thirst for fertilizer to feed the creation of their shells nearly
starved the nation. It answers question such as: What is cordite? What is lyddite? What is mustard gas? What is
phosgene? What is gunmetal? This is a true picture of the horrors of the "Chemists' War."

German Assault Troops of the First World War


Stosstrupptaktik - The First Stormtroopers
Stephen Bull

Summary
To many it would later seem as if the rule book of war had been torn up and thrown away. World War I is usually
characterized as a static war of attrition, but by its end a new doctrine of fire and movement emerged, with the
squad as the key tactical unit, marking a fundamental shift in methods of warfare. As late as March 1918,
assault detachments used these tactics to destroy the British 5th Army and take 50,000 prisoners. Stephen Bull
traces the development of German storm tactics in the context of trench warfare waged with new technology:
vastly improved machine-guns, super-heavy artillery, flamethrowers, and gas. The legend of German stormtroops
has proved powerful and enduring. They were central to Blitzkrieg, and Hitler styled them as elite soldiers-living
examples of Nietzschean supermen. As demonstrated here, these tactics did not appear out of nowhere.

Great War Britain


The First World War at Home
Lucinda Gosling

Summary
The declaration of war in August, 1914, was to change Britain and British society irrevocably as conflict came to
dominate almost every aspect of civilian life for the next four years. Popular weekly magazines, such as the
Tatler, the Sketch, and the Queen, recorded the national preoccupations of the time, and in particular, the
upper class experience of war. Targeted at a well-heeled, largely female audience, these magazines were
veteran reporters of aristocratic balls, the latest Parisian fashions, and society engagements, but quickly
adapted to war-like conditions without ever quite losing their gossipy essence. Fashion soon found itself jostling
for position with items on patriotic fundraising, and Court presentations were replaced by notes on nursing
convalescent soldiers. The result is a fascinating, at times amusing, and uniquely feminine perspective of life on

In the Shadow of Gallipoli


The Hidden Story of Australia in WWI
Robert Bollard

Summary
The fighting Anzacs have metamorphosed from flesh and blood into mythic icons; the war they fought in is
distant and the resistance to it within Australia has been forgotten. This book corrects such historical amnesia
by looking at what occured on the Australian home front during WWI, showing that the war was a disaster and
many Australians knew it. It not only considers the wartime strike wave resulting from the discontent and
dissent, such as the Great Strike of 1917, but also the impact of international political events, including the
Easter Rising in Ireland and the Russian Revolution. Demonstrating that the first year of peace was tumultuous,
as strikes and riots involving returned Anzacs shook Australia throughout 1919, this book uncovers the history
that has been obscured by the shadow of Anzac.

Into the Danger Zone


Sea Crossings of the First World War
Tad Fitch, Michael Poirier, Hugh Brewster

Summary
A poignant look at the most vivid, dramatic transatlantic crossings of World War I

As World War I loomed, the transatlantic passenger trade was at its peak, and as the enormity of the conflict
grew, liners were conscripted into service. In an attempted blockade to cut off supplies, Germany began sinking
Allied merchant vessels until by war's end just 351 U-boats sank more than 5,000 merchant ships, killing 15,000
sailors. This book recounts what it was like for both the military and civilians to experience a transatlantic
voyage in a time of war and uncertainty, at risk from any number of dangers, including U-boats, mines, and
enemy surface vessels. Attacks were frequent and tragedy all too common. This little-known chapter of the 20th
century is explored here with engrossing narrative and a large quantity of rare and unpublished first-hand

Letters From the Trenches


A Soldier of the Great War
Bill Lamin

Summary
The youngest of four children, Harry Lamin was born in Derbyshire in 1877 and left school at the age of 13 to
work in the lace industry. In December 1916 he was conscripted into the 9th Battalion, York and Lancaster
Regiment, an infantry unit with which he served in France and Italy until more than a year after the war had
ended. On the Western Front he took part in the Battle of the Messines Ridge in June 1917, and then in the
costly, long-drawn-out agony of the Battle of Passchendaele (Third Ypres), in which he was wounded. Harry's
battalion was later ordered to Italy as part of an Anglo-French force sent to shore up the Italian Army. Seeing
action on the Piave front, the 9th York and Lancasters served in Italy until Austria sued for an armistice after
the crushing defeat of Vittorio Veneto. With the war over, Harry remained in Italy, transferring to the Royal
Munster Fusiliers in April 1919, and was finally demobbed in January 1920. Throughout his time in service, Harry
wrote beautifully observed letters home to members of his family and to friends. Whether describing some

Lost Boys of Anzac


Peter Stanley

Summary
Australians remember the dead of 25 April 1915 on Anzac Day every year. But does anyone know the name of a
single soldier who died that day? What do we really know about the men supposedly most cherished in the
national memory of war? Peter Stanley goes looking for the lost boys of Anzac: the men of the very first wave to
land at dawn on 25 April 1915 and who died on that day. There were exactly 101 of them: the first to volunteer,
the first to go into action, and the first of the 60,000 Australians killed in that conflict. Lost Boys of Anzac
traces who these men were, where they came from, and why they came to volunteer for the AIF in 1914. It
follows what happened to them in uniform and, using sources overlooked for nearly a century, uncovers where
and how they died, on the ridges and gullies of Gallipoli-where most of them remain to this day. It shows how
the lost boys were remembered by those who knew and loved them, and how they have since faded from
memory.

Men of Letters
The Post Office Heroes Who Fought the Great War
Duncan Barrett

Summary
Stories of the lives and losses of the Post Office Rifles in World War I-men who came from all ranks and walks of
life, brought together by their common pre-war employment as Post Office workers

When World War I broke out, the post office was the biggest employer in the world. Spanning many ranks and
walks of life, 12,000 men fought bravely with the Post Office Rifles. By the war's end, 1,800 of them had been
killed. Those same men who not long before had been sorting and delivering mail, found themselves hoping their
own letters would get through to their loved ones at home, and relying on the letters and parcels sent to them
for their own much needed morale-boosts. Using the personal stories and letters of the men who joined the Post
Office Rifles, this is a moving account of how the war touched the lives of ordinary men-how it changed
Aa Publishing communities, how women took up men's working roles, and, of course, the vital role the mail played in the war.

My War Diary 1914-1918


Ethel M. Bilbrough

Summary
Life on the Home Front during the Great War, as Ethel Bilbrough, a housewife from Chislehurst in Kent,
saw it.

Part scrapbook, part memoir, this wonderfully colourful and eloquent diary brims with vivid observations, providing
a rare snapshot of what life was like on the Home Front during the First World War.

Amateur artist, animal lover and keen writer of letters to the papers, Mrs Bilbrough witnessed the men leaving for
war (her husband, Kenneth, a banker in the City, was fortunately too old to be called up); the horses at

One Minute's Silence


Michael Camilleri, David Metzenthen

Summary
A moving and powerful story about the meaning of Remembrance Day, drawing on the Australian and Turkish
battle at Gallipoli

On the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, David Metzenthen asks, "What is the true meaning of
remembering?" This is a powerful and moving picture book for older readers about the "one minute's silence"
observed in Australia on Remembrance Day, and what Gallipoli means to Australians in this context. By showing
both sides of the conflict-Aussie and Turk-he encourages readers to think about all those who have fallen, and
Allen & Unwin by using this iconic battle-one of the few to have brought two nations closer together-he suggests another

Pyramids and Fleshpots


The Egyptian, Senussi and Eastern Mediterranean Campaigns, 1914 - 16
Stuart Hadaway

Summary
Personnel serving in Egypt in World War I often complained that the popular impression of the campaigns, still
widely held, was that it was a sideshow, with troops enjoying a holiday among the pyramids and the "fleshpots"
of Cairo. Actually they faced appalling heat, abrasive sand, poor rations, and water shortages. In the desolation
of the Western Desert they fought the Senussi, an Islamic sect supported by the Ottomans in a reversal of
Lawrence's later work with the Arabs, while in the Sinai Desert they countered German-backed moves to
dominate this strategically important area. Meanwhile, the Royal Navy fought to keep the supply lines to Gallipoli
open, and keep men and material flowing to France from India, Australia, and New Zealand. This book will tell the
true story of their experiences and achievements in fighting a determined enemy to protect the Suez Canal-the
lifeline of the Empire.

Shooting the Front


Allied Aerial Reconnaissance in the First World War
Terrence J. Finnegan

Summary
A meticulously researched history of British, French, and American aerial surveillance on the Western Front

World War I marked the beginning of the era of modern warfare, a conflict that demanded revolutionary
technology to break the vicious stalemate in which the armies of Europe found themselves. One such technology
was aerial reconnaissance and photography, which together with the growing intelligence use of phone tapping
and radio intercepts, changed the nature of war forever. Describing the evolution of aerial photography during
World War I, this text is packed with data, information, and meticulous research from essential archives including
the National Archives in College Park, Maryland and London's National Archives. It shows not only how important
Spellmount aerial reconnaissance was to the war effort, but also how it became the foundation for modern-day exploitation

SIGINT
The Secret History of Signals Intelligence in the World Wars
Peter F. Matthews

Summary
From MORSE to ENIGMA, ULTRA to PURPLE, Room 40 to Bletchley-the story of secret signals in both of the World
Wars

Communicating in the chaos of war is complicated, but vital. Signals intelligence makes it possible. In World War
I, a vast network of signals rapidly expanded across the globe, spawning a new breed of spies and intelligence
operatives to code, decode, and analyze thousands of messages. Signalers and cryptographers in the Admiralty's
famous Room 40 paved the way for the code breakers of Bletchley Park during World War II. In the ensuing war
years, the world battled against a web of signals intelligence that gave birth to ENIGMA and ULTRA, and saw
agents from Britain, France, Germany, Russia, America, and Japan race to outwit each other through infinitely

Somme 1916
Andrew Robertshaw

Summary
One of the bloodiest battles in military history-what happened and why

The Battle of the Somme raged from July 1 to November 18, 1916, and was one of the bloodiest fought in
military history. It has come to signify for many the waste and bloodshed of World War I as hundreds of
thousands of men on all sides lost their lives fighting over small gains in land. Yet, this battle also marked a
turning point in the war and was witness to new methods of warfare, such as all-arms integrated attacks, with
infantry units and the new Tank Corps fighting alongside each other. Complete with detailed maps and
photographs, as well as fascinating facts and profiles of the leaders, this is the best introduction to this
legendary battle.

The August Offensive, Gallipoli: 1915
David W. Cameron

Summary
Drawing from letters, diaries, and official reports from both Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) and
Turkish sources, this narrative re-creates in compelling detail the five days of the August Offensive of World War
I-the last attempt by the Allied forces to break the stalemate with the Turkish defenders. It resulted in some of
the bloodiest battles on the Gallipoli peninsula. Describing the complexity of the battles, this chronicle also
details how they affected the soldiers involved. Both visceral and poignant, this narrative is the first to look at
the failed offensive as a whole, describing it from both sides of the line.

Surviving Tenko: The Story of Margot Turner


Penny Starns

Summary
Margot Turner's tale of survival is so unusual and dramatic that it inspired the 1980s television series Tenko. The
cargo ship on which she was evacuated from Singapore in 1942 was shelled, leaving her on a makeshift raft with
16 other survivors. One by one they perished, leaving her alone, burnt black by the sun, and suffering from heat
exhaustion and dehydration. Discovered by a Japanese destroyer and imprisoned on Banka Island, Turner was
beaten and tortured, before being taken to the notorious Palembang jail. Here, crammed with murderers and
rapists in a filthy cell, she spent six months, living in daily fear of joining the many who were noisily tortured and
executed. In this, the first biography for 40 years, Penny Starns describes the often horrific, but occasionally
heart-warming, experiences of this unbreakable woman who, not content with surviving the war, went on to
become a brigadier and Chief Military Nurse. Using recently released material from The National Archives and
Turner's own words, she re-analyses the Pacific conflict against a backdrop of one woman's incredible ...

Tank Boys
Stephen Dando-Collins

Summary
Published to coincide with the centenary of the outbreak of World War I in 2014, this is a gripping story that
brings to life for young readers one of Australia's military victories. Central to the story is 'Mephisto,' a German
tank captured by Queensland and Tasmanian soldiers of the 26th Battalion in 1918. Housed today in the
Queensland Museum, it's the only surviving WWI German tank in the world. Tank Boys focuses on three boys,
two under-age 16-year-old Australians who capture the tank, and a 15-year-old German conscript in the tank's
crew. During the battle for the tank, the Australian boys take pity on the German boy, and smuggle him back to
their lines in Australian uniform, to save him.

Ten Days in August


The Siege of Liège 1914
Terence Zuber

Summary
A complete and accurate picture of the seige of Liège, using both Belgian and German sources

In August 1914 the German main attack was conducted by the 2nd Army. It had the missions of taking the vital
fortresses of Liège and Namur, and then defeating the Anglo-French-Belgian forces in the open plains of northern
Belgium. The German attack on the Belgian fortress at Liège had tremendous political and military importance.
Nevertheless, there has never been a complete account of the siege. The German and Belgian sources are
fragmentary and biased. The short descriptions in English are general, use a few Belgian sources, and are filled
with inaccuracies. Making use of both German and Belgian sources, this book for the first time describes and
evaluates the construction of the fortress, its military purpose, the German plan, and the conduct of the German

The Country House at War: 1914?1918


Brian Williams

Summary
The changing face of the British country house in World War I, encapsulating the stories of upstairs and
downstairs, men and women

In many ways the country house symbolized Edwardian life, with its expensive elegance, social seasons, and
sharp social contrasts. All key families owned country houses and millions of domestic and agricultural workers
depended on the country house and its estates for their livelihoods. Yet when the shadow of war fell, the long,
post Edwardian, tea-on-the-lawn summer came to an abrupt end. Used during the war as hospitals,
convalescent homes, training camps, and for agricultural production, there is also the human side to the country
house at war: male workers conscripted, fathers losing all hereditary heirs, women taking roles as nurses, and

The Final Whistle


The Great War in Fifteen Players
Stephen Cooper

Summary
This is the story of fifteen men killed in the Great War. All played rugby for one London club; none lived to hear
the final whistle.

Rugby brought them together; rugby led the rush to war. They came from Britain and the empire to fight in every
theatre and service, among them a poet, playwright and perfumer. Some were decorated and died heroically;
others fought and fell quietly. Together their stories paint a portrait in miniature of the entire war.

Founded in 1879, when British soldiers fought in Afghanistan as they do today, Rosslyn Park has no war
Spellmount memorial. An old press cutting gave numbers - 350 served, 72 died - but no names. So began a quest to

The First Battle of the First World War


Alsace-Lorraine
Karl Deuringer, Terence Zuber

Summary
Though not so famous as the battles of Tannenberg or the Marne, the fight between the French and German
armies at Alsace and Lorraine marks the first battle of World War I

On August 7, 1914, a week before the Battle of Tannenburg and two weeks before the Battle of the Marne, the
French army attacked the Germans at Mulhouse in Alsace. Their objective was to recapture territory which had
been lost after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871, which made it a matter of pride for the French. However,
after initial success in capturing Mulhouse, the Germans were able to reinforce more quickly, and drove them
back within three days. After 43 years of peace, this was the first test of strength between France and
Germany. In 1929 Karl Deuringer wrote the official history of the battle for the Bavarian Army, an immensely

The First VCs


The Moving True Story of First World War Heroes: Maurice Dease and Sidney Godley
Mark Ryan

Summary
What would you do if you were struck by an enemy bullet in wartime, then realized you were still alive? For most
of us, that would be the end of our fight. If we were capable of thought while we tried to cope with the pain,
we'd probably hope to be rushed to hospital, so that someone could save our lives. But a hundred years ago, in
the opening battle of World War I at Mons, two young men didn't react like that. Lieutenant Maurice Dease and
Private Sidney Godley, born only weeks apart into sharply contrasting worlds, shared the same defiance. They
didn't think of themselves and went back for more, sustaining dreadful wounds in the process. One man died, the
other lived-pieced back together painstakingly by the Germans, who had taken so many casualties of their own
while overrunning the British position. Together Dease and Godley became the first winners of the Victoria Cross
in World War I.

The Other First World War


The Blood-Soaked Eastern Front
Douglas Boyd

Summary
A challenge to the conventional Western Front bias of World War I history, a must-have for any war historian

Unlike the stalemate of the trenches in Flanders, the little-known eastern front of World War I was a war of
movement that caused 12 million casualties, including female combatants. It spanned thousands of miles, from
the Baltic to the Black and Caspian seas, before spreading north to the Arctic and east to the Pacific, embroiling
several thousand British Empire and U.S. soldiers in secret operations in the far North, Siberia, and Ukraine. After
the war, Britain and France rebuilt themselves and the U.S. was unaffected. In the east, this savage conflict of
atrocities destroyed all the belligerents: the German, Austro-Hungarian, Ottoman, and Russian empires. Berlin

The Real German War Plan, 1904---14


Terence Zuber

Summary
Based on recently discovered material in German archives, this book
fundamentally changes our understanding of German military planning before World War I
On the basis of newly discovered or long-neglected documents in German military archives, this book gives the
first description of Schlieffen's war plans in 1904 and 1905 and Moltke's plans from 1906 to 1914. It explodes
unfounded myths concerning German war planning, gives the first appraisal of the actual military and political
factors that influenced it, proves conclusively that there never was a "Schlieffen Plan," and reveals Moltke's
strategy for a war against Russia from 1909 to 1912. Tracing the decline in the German military position and the
recognition by 1913 that Germany would be forced to fight outnumbered on both the eastern and western
fronts, it is an essential read for anyone with an interest in World War I.

The Tommy's Handbook


Neil Storey

Summary
The Tommy's Guide to The Great War is told through a compilation of facsimiles from original military guides and
booklets produced during World War I for officers and men. Included are chapters exploring all stages of the
soldier's experiences, from recruitment and through training, covering topics from drill and marching songs to
badges of rank, soldier's equipment, physical, rifle, and machine gun training, and use of the bayonet. It then
goes on to active service in the trenches of the Western Front, where the instructions for how to construct a
trench are reproduced, along with what to do in the event of a gas attack, scouting, and reconnaissance work,
field communications, cookery, cavalry action, how an infantry attack should be carried out, and how casualties
and prisoners of war should be dealt with. Packed with excerpts carefully selected by historian Neil R. Storey
from his nationally respected archive, this volume provides a revealing and authentic insight into the life of the
soldier during World War I, and forms an essential volume for anyone with an interest in the subj...

The Western Front from the Air


Nicholas C. Watkis, Jane Carmichael, Steven Thornb...

Summary
A meticulous selection from the 100,000 photo reconnaissance negatives held by the Imperial War Museum,
showing how the Western Front was perceived

The photographs included and analyzed here were taken by the Royal Flying Corps to provide reconnaissance for
the British Army on the Western Front and are drawn from the huge archive held by The Imperial War Museum.
Few people have had the courage to delve into the "Box Collection." Nicholas Watkis is one. The images have
been chosen to reveal significant actions and have been carefully annotated to show the terrain and defenses,
pinpointing strongpoints, machine guns, mortars, and gun batteries. The seven battles are Neuve Chapelle, Loos,
La Boiselle, Flers, Vimy Ridge, Cambrai, and Amiens. Not only does the real work of the RFC become clear-
shooting down enemy aircraft was entirely ancillary to photo recon-the reader also, quite literally, sees just what

Trench Talk
Words of the First World War
Peter Doyle, Julian Walker

Summary
The First World War largely directed the course of the 20th century. Fought on three continents, the war saw
14 million killed and 34 million wounded. Its impact shaped the world we live in today, and the language of the
trenches continues to live in the modern consciousness. One of the enduring myths of World War I is that the
experience of the trenches was not talked about. Yet dozens of words entered or became familiar in the English
language as a direct result of the soldiers' experiences. This book looks at how the experience of World War I
changed the English language, adding words that were both in slang and standard military use, and modifying the
usage and connotations of existing words and phrases. Illustrated with material from the authors' collections and
photographs of the objects of the war, the book will look at how the words emerged into everyday language.

Unknown Warriors
The Letters of Kate Luard, RRC and Bar, Nursing Sister in France 1914-1918
John Stevens

Summary
The words of Unknown Warriors resonate as powerfully today as when first written. It offers a very personal
glimpse into the hidden world of the military field hospital, where patients struggled with pain and trauma and
nurses fought to save lives and preserve emotional integrity. The book's author was one of a select number of
fully trained professional nurses who worked in hospital trains and casualty clearing stations during the war,
coming as close to the front as a woman could. K E L was already a war veteran when she arrived in France in
1914, aged 42, having served during the 2nd Boer War. The author's intention was to bear witness to the
suffering of the ordinary soldier. Kate was the best. At the height of the Battle of Passchendaele, she had a
staff of 40 nurses and nearly 100 nursing orderlies (the normal nursing workforce for a CCS was seven); and she
was facing the worst-abdominal wounds, up to that point a death sentence.

VCs of the First World War: The Final Days 1918


Gerald Gliddon

Summary
This is the latest volume in the series covering the final days of World War I on the Western Front from the Allied
Armies being poised to capture the Hindenburg Line to the Armistice on November 11, 1918. The book opens with
the stories of seven Victoria Cross (VC) winners who took part in the Battle of the Canal du Nord on September
27, 1918. Despite enemy resistance, the British First and Third Armies advanced six miles, leading eventually to
the successful capture of Cambrai. The last period of the war became a series of battles to capture a series of
river lines. From the Battle of the Canal du Nord until Armistice Day, a period of just under six weeks, a total of
56 VCs were won in the victorious Allied advance. The VC winners came from France and Canada as well.

World War I
Scottish Tales of Adventure
Allan Burnett

Summary
Eight true stories from the battlefields of the First World War color the pages of this gripping collection.

Bringing to life a variety of Scottish war stories from the Western Front, Gallipoli, and Africa, this book recounts
the terrible struggle for survival in muddy trenches where young soldiers dodged bullets, poison gas, and
explosive shells while waiting for the order to go over the top and face the enemy. Young readers will be as
informed as they are inspired by the thrills and spills of the Scottish Royal Flying Corp, where airmen flew daring
reconnaissance missions under heavy fire, and brave doctors and nurses treated the wounded in makeshift wards
in tents amid the bombs and gunfire. These stories of excitement, heartache, heroism, and victory are all based
on personal diaries, letters, and memoirs.

The Battle of the Barents Sea
Dudley Pope

Summary
The events and decisions that culminated in the Battle of the Barents Sea-what many consider to be the most
important naval engagement of World War II's European theatre-in which eight of the German navy's most
powerful ships failed to sink a Russian convoy guarded by only four small British destroyers, are brought to life by
the author in this tale of men struggling to carry out their orders in the face of overwhelming obstacles.

Author Bio
Dudley Pope, a naval defense correspondent of the London Evening News, progressed to writing carefully
researched naval history. C.S. Forester urged Pope to try his hand at fiction and saw the younger writer as his
literary heir. Pope began what was to become an impressive series with Ramage (1965) and, over the next 24
McBooks Press years, produced 17 more novels tracing Lord Ramage's career. Pope died in 1997.

'A Small Room in Clarges Street'


War-Time Lectures at the Royal Central Asian Society, 1942?1944
Rosie Llewellyn-Jones

Summary
During the darkest days of the Second World War a select group of people gathered together in Mayfair to listen
to a series of secret lectures organized by the Royal Central Asian Society (now the Royal Society for Asian
Affairs). Lecturers and their handpicked audience examined fast-moving events in the Middle East, Persia, and
Russia with the intention to propose strategies for Britain's postwar international role. The lecturers were chosen
for their inside knowledge of these countries. Secrecy surrounded these lectures-many of the scripts were
marked "Secret" or "Confidential;" they were not published in the Society's journal, and the audience was warned
not to reveal the topics discussed outside the Clarges Street premises. The discussions that followed the
lectures were held in the knowledge that frank views could be freely expressed, and are included in this volume.
Although so much has changed in the international arena, these 70-year-old lectures, only recently rediscovered
Sussex Academic Press in the Society's archives, have a peculiar poignancy and relevance in understanding today's unquiet Mi...

A Time of Tyrants
Scotland and the Second World War
Trevor Royle

Summary
Trevor Royle examines Scotland's role in the Second World War from a wide range of perspectives. The country's
geographical position gave it great strategic importance for importing war matériel and reinforcements, for
conducting naval and aerial operations against the enemy, and for training regular and specialist SOE and
commando forces. Scotland also became a social melting pot with the arrival of Polish and eastern European
refugees, whose presence added to the communal mix and assisted postwar reconstruction. In addition to the
important military aspects-the exploits of the Army's renowned 15th Scottish and 51st Highland Divisions in
Europe and North Africa and the role played by the RAF and the Royal Navy from Scottish bases-Scotland was
also hugely important as an industrial power house and the nation's larder. Based on previously unseen archives
in the Scottish Record Office, A Time of Tyrants is the first comprehensive history of the unique part played by
Birlinn Ltd Scotland and the Scots in the global war to defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.

A Very Unusual Air War


From Dunkirk to AFDU: The Diary and Log Book of Test Pilot Leonard Thorne 1940-45
Leonard Thorne, Gill Griffin, Barry Griffin

Summary
The 20-year-old Len Thorne joined the RAF in May 1940. After two hectic tours of operational duty as a fighter
pilot (including some desperately dangerous low-level flying at Dunkirk) he was posted to AFDU (Air Fighting
Development Unit) and remained there as a test pilot for the rest of the war. He flew both Allied aircraft and
captured enemy planes and was a colleague of many of the fighter "aces." Fortunately for us, Len kept an
insightful diary, which, set alongside his log book, tells the unique story of a member of the AFDU, tasked with
developing operational tactics and testing captured enemy aircraft. Len provides not only an insight into training
and the amazing work done by the test pilots but also into some of the most famous flyers of the RAF, with
whom he worked, including Wing Commander Al Deere and Spitfire Aces SL "Paddy" Finucane, Ernie Ryder, and
many others. Len's diary for September 21 1942 records the first sighting of the feared FW190: "The pilot
Spellmount performed a series of quick rolls . . . metaphorically sticking up the proverbial two fingers." In May 1943 Len

An End of War
Fatal Final Days to VE Day 1945
Ken Tout

Summary
Soldier's-eye-views of the final fanatical battles of World War II include the legendary battles of the
Bulge and Crossing the Rhine told through U. S., Canadian, and British troops

Using his own experiences and interviews with many veterans, Ken Tout explores how the last gasps of the
German Army actually saw some of the fiercest and most fanatical fighting of the whole war. This last year of
war is filled with stories from the tragedy of whole groups of men being frozen to death in battle areas to the
triumph of logistics, ingenuity, and bravery. Fighting continued up to VE Day in May and some units were in
action for days longer as confusion reigned about the enemy surrender. Even after the fighting had finished, the

Atlantic Meeting
H. V. Morton

Summary
Morton's account of attending the 1941 Atlantic Treaty meeting between President Roosevelt and Winston
Churchill which established the Allied policy for post-World War II Europe

In August 1941 Winston Churchill and President Roosevelt met secretly on HMS The Prince of Wales, moored just
off the coast of Newfoundland. H. V. Morton was invited to accompany the Prime Minister and his entourage, a
trip which was not without its hazards. This is a unique account of the events leading up to Churchill's
discussions with Roosevelt and a fascinating account of the practicalities-and occasionally humor-involved in
such a perilous journey. Only a handful of people knew Churchill had left Britain and in America the press merely
reported that Roosevelt was enjoying a few days' away from Washington, fishing. The Atlantic Treaty, while not
achieving all that Churchill had hoped for, was a key document in the development of the war and post-war
Methuen strategy. Churchill had hoped that at the resolution of the meeting the U.S. would join the war during the
9780413776969 summer of 1941, but this was not to be. H. V. Mort...

Myth, Reality and the Heirs of ANZAC
Craig Stockings

Summary
Chronicling the first battle of World War II planned and executed by Australia's military, this groundbreaking
study recounts the island nation's assault on the Italian colonial fortress town of Bardia in Libya. After 55 hours
of heavy fighting, the Australians celebrated a resounding victory, having captured 40,000 Italian prisoners and
large quantities of arms and equipment with minimal losses to their own fighting forces. Though regarded as one
of Australia's great military feats, this intricately researched history is the first in-depth account of the Battle of
Bardia.

Battle of the Atlantic


Marc Milner

Summary
A major reinterpretation of the most important military campaign of World War II
World War II was only a few hours old when the Battle of the Atlantic, the longest campaign of World War II and
the most complex submarine war in history, began with the sinking of the unarmed passenger liner Athenia by the
German submarine U30. Based on the mastery of the latest research and written from a mid-Atlantic-rather than
the traditional Anglocentric-perspective, Marc Milner focuses on the confrontation between opposing forces and
the attacks on Allied shipping that lay at the heart of the six-year struggle. Against the backdrop of the battle
for the Atlantic lifeline he charts the fascinating development of U-boats and the techniques used by the Allies
to suppress and destroy these stealth weapons.

Christobel Mattingley

Summary
David's boyhood dreams of flying led him to England for months of training to be a bomber pilot in World War II at
age 19, but his final flight was a nightmare. Seconds after the bombs were released, David was wounded in five
places and his fellow pilot Dog was hit. Flying metal slashed his right knee, thigh, and shoulder; the tendons and
artery in his right hand were severed; and shrapnel ripped through his thick leather helmet, fracturing his skull as
his aircraft went into a dive. This riveting true story takes young people through the events of a young WWII
pilot's heroic journey and his courage and endurance in the face of terrifying conditions.

Battle Story: Arnhem 1944-45


Chris Brown

Summary
What truly happened at one of the most iconic battles of World War II
When we think of Arnhem we think of A Bridge Too Far and a sky full of parachutes dropping the Allies into the
Netherlands. Beyond these images, this was one of the most complex and strategically important operations of
the war. Operation Market Garden was devised to give the Allies the opportunity to bypass the German Siegfried
Line and attack the Ruhr. Paratroopers were dropped into the Netherlands to secure all the bridgeheads and
major routes along the proposed Allied axis advance. Simultaneously the 1st Airborne Division, supported by the
Glider Pilot Regiment and Polish 1st Independent Parachute Brigade, landed at Arnhem. The British expected to
connect with the Arnhem force within a matter of days, but things on the ground proved very different. The
troops met resistance from pockets of SS soldiers and soon were overwhelmed. The Arnhem contingent was cut-
off from reinforcement and eventually forced to withdraw. The 1st Airborne Division lost three-quarters of its
strength in the operation and did not see b...

Battle Story: Battle of the Bulge 1944-45


Andrew Rawson

Summary
The story of one of the most decisive Allied victories of World War II
Clear and concise, this account of the dramatic days at the end of 1944 is supported by a timeline of events and
orders of battle. In December 1944 the German military made their final attempt to end World War II by throwing
in all their reserves in a desperate effort to shatter the Allied lines. After breaking through the American-held
sector in the Ardennes, two Panzer armies headed for the bridges over the River Meuse. However, a combination
of poor planning, bad weather, torturous terrain, and above all, the determined defense of such key towns and
villages as Bastogne and St. Vith, delayed the advance. The Allies were able to hold the northern and southern
shoulders of the attack, hemming the Germans in. The Bulge had been created, and as the fortunes of battle
were reversed, the Allies struck back.

Battle Story: Iwo Jima 1945


Andrew Rawson

Summary
The full story of one of the bloodiest battles of the war in the Pacific
Operation Detachment, the invasion of Iwo Jima on February 19, 1945, was the first campaign on Japanese soil
and resulted in some of the fiercest fighting of the Pacific campaign. U. S. Marines supported by the Navy and
Air Force fought the Japanese both over and underground on the island of volcanic ash, in a battle which was
immortalized by the raising of the Stars and Stripes above Mount Suribachi. It was a battle that the Japanese
could not win but they were determined to die trying; of the 18,000-strong garrison, only 200 were taken
prisoner. Americans lost more in the 35 day battle, but at the end had possession of three airfields in range of
the Japanese mainland. This book gives a clear, concise account of those dramatic days in 1945, supported by a
timeline of events and orders of battle.

Summary
Kohima was one of the most important battles in the Asian theater during World War II; find out why

Kohima was the turning point in the Japanese invasion of India, witnessing the end of their attempt to overthrow
the British Raj. It was a bitter battle fought in three stages, spanning three months, and ending with the siege of
Imphal. Losses on both sides were heavy, with the Japanese suffering their greatest land defeat thus far in the
war. Against the odds and an enemy who nearly refused to give in, the British Army resisted the Japanese and
their victory paved the way for the reconquest of Burma. This book explores the historical context of this critical
point in the war in Asia, the personalities of the opposing armies, and offers a blow-by-blow account of the
battle.

Battle Story: Kursk 1943


Mark Healy

Summary
A clear, concise account of those dramatic days in 1943, supported by a timeline of events and orders of battle,
and illustrated with more than 50 photographs

In July 1943, Hitler launched Operation Zitadelle, the last German offensive on the Eastern Front. It was an
attempt to shorten the German lines by eliminating the Kursk salient-created after their defeat at Stalingrad-and
was designed to result in the encirclement of the Red Army. In reality the German tanks came up against
impenetrable Russian defenses: minefields, artillery, and anti-tank emplacements, spread through lines 250km
deep and manned by Russian troops whose actions often verged on the suicidal. The greatest tank battle in
history, Kursk assured the Nazis' defeat and was "the swan song of the German tank arm." Involving more than
9000 tanks, 5000 aircraft, 35,000 guns and mortars, and 2,700,000 troops (of whom 230,000 became
casualties), the Battle of Kursk was a conflict whose scale and barbarity eclipsed all other clashes in Europe.

Battle Story: Singapore 1942


Chris Brown

Summary
The story of the crushing defeat that sent shockwaves around the British Empire during World War II

Singapore had always been seen as an impenetrable fortress that would protect the British Empire's stake in the
Far East-a legacy of the days of global dominion. The British Army were aware of the threat to Singapore and
Malaya from the first days after Pearl Harbor, but they viewed the Japanese Army as an inferior fighting force,
incapable of standing up to the defenses and trained troops of the British. Yet, in December 1941 the Japanese
launched a swift attack on the Singapore airfields, nearly wiping out the entire fleet of RAF frontline airplanes.
On December 1 the Japanese also destroyed two of the Royal Navy's premier battleships off the Malay coast.
Suddenly, the fate of Singapore rested solely in the hands of the Army. Despite having 90,000 British soldiers
posted in Singapore they were quickly overwhelmed by the speed and ferocity of the invading Japanese forces,
numbering 75,000 men. The brutality of the Japanese tactics and their sheer ferocity shocked the British and

Battle Story: Tobruk 1941


Pier Paolo Battistelli

Summary
The tale of one of the longest-running sieges in British military history, and a potent symbol of resistance

The siege of Tobruk lasted 240 days during which the "gallant garrison" of Allied soldiers, primarily the Australian
9th Division, held out against constant attacks from Rommel's Afrika Korps. The battle became a potent symbol
of British resistance. However, Tobruk's importance was far beyond that of a mere symbol in the war, it was a
key fortress and port that enabled the resupply of troops throughout the Western Desert theater. Indeed,
Goebbels was so infuriated by the British stand that he referred to the garrison troops as "rats" and the "Rats of
Tobruk" became known for their tenacity. When the fortress finally fell to German tanks on June 21, 1942, with
the loss of 25,000 men, Churchill said it was "one of the heaviest blows I can recall during the war."

Blood in the Snow, Blood on the Grass


Treachery, Torture, Murder and Massacre - France 1944
Douglas Boyd

Summary
Based on original research and personal reminiscences of French and Allied participants, this story, previously
unpublished in English, highlights the cynical disregard for civilian lives shown by British SOE and American OSS

Nearing D-Day, Allied intelligence used Royal Air Force airdrops to send Allied liaison officers down with supplies
to the thousands of young men hiding in France's forests and hill country. Here the officers defied the two

Britain's Band of Brothers


Tom Keene, Major-General Julian Thompson

Summary
Endorsed at the highest level by Churchill, 50 hand-picked men formed an elite secret army who attacked,
kidnapped, and killed Germans across Europe during World War II-their story is finally told

They were Britain's own World War II "Band of Brothers," a privately selected secret army of 50 cross-channel
raiders who formed the elite Small Scale Raiding Force. Part SOE, part Combined Operations, their full story of
courage, audacity, and ultimate tragedy has never been told before. Created after the fall of Dunkirk, the raiders
were much admired, especially by Churchill. In almost 20 daring missions over two years they kidnapped sentries,
ambushed patrols, and shot prisoners, reaping havoc along the rim of Hitler's Festung Europa. One night, they
landed in a secret armed reconnaissance mission at what would become Omaha Beach and ran into a German
patrol. With nowhere to hide but the sea, they were gunned down. Those left behind continued their

Broken Nation
Australians in the Great War
Joan Beaumont

Summary
The Great War is, for many Australians, the event that defined our nation. The larrikin diggers, trench warfare,
and the landing at Gallipoli have become the stuff of the Anzac legend. But it was also a war fought by the
families at home. Their resilience in the face of hardship, their stoic acceptance of enormous casualty lists, and
their belief that their cause was just, made the war effort possible. Broken Nation is the first book to bring
together all the dimensions of World War I. Combining deep scholarship with powerful storytelling, Joan Beaumont
brings the war years to life: from the well-known battles at Gallipoli, Pozieres, Fromelles, and Villers-Bretonneux,
to the lesser known battles in Europe and the Middle East; from the ferocious debates over conscription to the
disillusioning Paris peace conference and the devastating "Spanish" flu the soldiers brought home. Witness the
Allen & Unwin fear and courage of tens of thousands of soldiers, grapple with the strategic nightmares confronting the
9781741751383 commanders, and come to understand the impact on Australians at home and at the front of death o...

Caen
Anvil of Victory
Alexander McKee

Summary
A brilliant reconstruction of the struggle that ravaged Normandy throughout the summer of 1944 in the wake of
the D-Day landings, this work culls personal accounts of those who took part in the fighting, both Allied and
German, and of the French civilians caught in one of the most terrible and heroic episodes of the Second World
War. With fearful losses on both sides and unspeakable suffering for the French, who had to endure constant
massive bombardments from the air, this acclaimed account re-creates a vivid portrait of the action and feelings
felt by all involved. A major commemoration of the role played by the common soldiers-those who witnessed the
landings and experienced the Battle for Caen-this edition includes revisions and new material and is further
enhanced by archival photographs.

Catch That Tiger


Noel Botham, Bruce Montague

Summary
With exclusive access to private diaries and dozens of photographs, this is the incredible story of one of the
most dangerous and thrilling secret missions of World War II

Unleashed by Hitler in 1942, the German Tiger tank was by far the most powerful tank ever built at the time-the
60-ton monster could destroy any Allied tank from more than a mile away. Desperate to discover the secret
technology used in its manufacture, Winston Churchill chose a brilliant young army engineer, Major Doug
Lidderdale, as his special agent. In a late-night briefing in the subterranean war rooms under Whitehall he
ordered him "Go catch me a tiger." By February 1943, Doug was facing Rommel's desert army. After several hair-
raising efforts to bag a Tiger on the battlefields of Tunisia, Doug and his team put their lives on the line in a
terrifying shoot-out with the five-man crew of a Tiger, capturing the tank intact. The morale boost to the Allies
John Blake was such that both Churchill and King George VI flew to Tunis to examine the Tiger firsthand. But the Germans

U-482 and the Sinking of Empire Heritage 1944
John Peterson

Summary
The full story of one of the greatest Allied shipping losses of World War II

For the first time, this book describes how U-482 managed to slip undetected into the busy shipping lanes of the
North Channel and carry out the last great U-boat patrol of the war. In the autumn of 1944 World War II was
coming to an end, and the U-boats in the Atlantic had been beaten back through a massive program of Allied
shipbuilding combined with tactical, technological, and intelligence improvements. The threat to Allied shipping
had diminished but not disappeared, and a lone U-boat on its first active patrol slipped into the North Channel—in
just a few days five ships lay broken on the seabed including the Empire Heritage, one of the largest Allied ships
lost in the entire war. Also lost was a rescue ship attacked while trying to rescue survivors from the Empire

D-Day Diary
Life on the Front Line in the Second World War
Carol Harris

Summary
Eyewitness accounts of the experiences of those who participated in D-Day, including sailors, soldiers, airmen,
and civilians from both sides

Historian Carol Harris collects together remarkable tales of bravery, survival, and sacrifice from what was one of
the war's most dramatic and pivotal episodes, and presents them arranged as a chronological narrative. June 6,
1944 is one of the most memorable dates of World War II. It marked the beginning of the end of the conflict as
Allied forces invaded Normandy and fought their way into Nazi-occupied Europe. Operation Overlord, as the
invasion was codenamed, was an incredible feat that proved to be a turning point which would eventually result
in the defeat of Nazi Germany. Around 150,000 soldiers landed on the beaches of Normandy on the first day in
the largest amphibious operation in history, and within a month more than 1 million men had been put ashore. As

D-Day in Numbers
The Facts Behind Operation Overlord
Jacob F. Field

Summary
Discover the numbers that defined D-Day and the future of Europe in 1944
D-Day, June 6, 1944: the day on which the Allies landed on the beaches of Normandy with the intention of
reclaiming mainland Europe from German occupation. The significance of the operation has captured the
collective imagination to become the defining moment of World War II and represents the ending to the struggles
of the early 20th century. This book follows the course of the war in Europe from 1939 through to the D-Day
landings and their aftermath, taking in the most poignant events and looking at each through the numbers
involved. Each number signifies an important moment within a larger story as they are explained in the context of
the surrounding events. With the vast amount of planning that went into the execution of such an ambitious
operation, the numbers involved are staggering, surprising, and often inspiring. Separate chapters discuss the

D-Day Landings: Omaha Beach


Stephen Badsey, Tim Bean

Summary
Archive photos, full-color mapping, and easy-to-follow battlefield tours enrich this account of the hardest fight
of D-Day
Infantry Divisions led the assault on Omaha Beach, the most strongly defended of the all invasion beaches, and
the entire fight is narrated in this book. Supporting Allied bombers had mostly missed their targets, the offshore
naval bombardment was hampered by poor visibility, and many elements of the first assault waves were
swamped or sank, including amphibious tanks. The first waves of infantry waded ashore into a storm of German
fire. In these first harrowing hours of "Overlord," Lieutenant General Omar Bradley, commanding First U.S. Army,
seriously considered aborting the Omaha landing altogether. Yet despite appalling difficulties and heavy
casualties, the U.S. troops prevailed and a vulnerable bridgehead inland was established by the evening of June
6.

The strengths, weaknesses, and sheer drama of airborne warfare are all encapsulated in the 6th Airborne

and motivated airborne troops sought to overcome a more heavily armed enemy desperate to unhinge the D-day

Clark provides an overview of British operations east of the River Orne from the initial landings in the early hours
of June 6, 1944, to the capture of Breville, seven days later. The battlefield tours that follow include not only

Death on the Don


The Destruction of Germany's Allies on the Eastern Front 1941 - 1944
Jonathan Trigg

Summary
Nazi Germany's assault on the Soviet Union in the summer of 1941, Operation Barbarossa, was the largest
invasion in history. Almost 3.5 million men smashed into Stalin's Red Army, reaching the gates of Leningrad,
Moscow, and Sevastopol. But not all of this vast army was German; indeed by the summer of 1942 over 500,000
were Romanians, Italians, Hungarians, Slovaks, and Croatians - Hitler's Axis allies. As part of the German
offensive that year, more than four allied armies advanced to the Don only to be utterly annihilated in the Red
Army's Saturn and Uranus winter offensives. Hundreds of thousands were killed, wounded, or captured and the
German Sixth Army was left surrounded and dying in the rubble of Stalingrad. Death on the Don tells the story of
one of the greatest military disasters of the Second World War.

Summary
Through the lives of nine ordinary Germans, tracing their experiences of Nazism from the first hopeful

When Louis Hagen returned to Berlin immediately after the war, he had survived incarceration and torture in a
German concentration camp as well as the Battle of Arnhem, seen his family flee their home, and had many
relatives die at the hands of the Third Reich. He wanted to understand why so many Germans had welcomed the
Nazi Party, and whether they were they now humbled and wiser. Hagen interviewed nine people he had known
before the war who represented a wide spectrum of German society—an SA officer, a businessman, a doctor, a

Eleven Days in August


The Liberation of Paris in 1944
Matthew Cobb

Summary
An incredibly gripping day by day account of the liberation of Paris from the Nazis in August 1944
The liberation of Paris was a momentous point in 20th-century history, yet it is now largely forgotten outside
France. This book is a pulsating hour-by-hour reconstruction of these tumultuous events that shaped the final
phase of the war and the future of France, told with the pace of a thriller. While examining the conflicting
national and international interests that played out in the bloody street fighting, it tells of how, in 11 dramatic
days, people lived, fought, and died in the most beautiful city in the world. Based largely on unpublished archive
material, including secret conversations, coded messages, diaries, and eyewitness accounts, this book chronicles
how these August days were experienced in very different ways by ordinary Parisians, Resistance fighters,
French collaborators, rank-and-file German soldiers, Allied and French spies, and the Allied and German High
Simon & Schuster UK Commands. Above all, it shows that while the liberation of Paris may be attributed to the audacity of the Resi...

Summary
Back in print after 50 years, this book was the first written chronicle of the evacuation of Dunkirk published by a
participant. Written in a modernist style reminiscent of Gertrude Stein, it has been hailed as a unique piece of
battle literature. Absorbing, affecting, and often humorous, the account juxtaposes the terrifying aerial
bombardment on the beach at Dunkirk with the surreal calm of the England to which the survivors returned.
Additional material includes excerpts from Gwyne-Brown's proposal for a book about the London Blitz.

The Nazis' Scorched Earth Campaign in Norway
Vincent Hunt

Summary
When Hitler ordered the north of Nazi-occupied Norway to be destroyed in a scorched earth retreat in 1944,
everything of possible use to their Soviet enemy was destroyed. Harbours, bridges and towns were dynamited
and every building torched. Fifty thousand people were forcibly evacuated - thousands more fled to hide in
caves in sub-zero temperatures.
High above the Arctic Circle, the author crosses northern Norway gathering scorched earth stories: of refugees
starving on remote islands, fathers shot dead just days before the war ended, grandparents driven crazy by
relentless bombing, towns burned to the ground. He explores what remains of the Lyngen Line mountain bunkers
in the Norwegian Alps, where the Allies feared a glorious last stand by fanatical Nazis - and where starved Soviet
prisoners of war too weak to work were dumped in death camps, driven in some cases to cannibalism.

Christine Nostlinger

Summary
When her family's apartment in Vienna is bombed, Christel Goth and her family lose everything. They are offered
the use of a summer villa in the suburbs, and walk there in just the clothes they stand up in. The war is ending,
and there is a precarious existence eking out food stores, and anticipating horrors from the oncoming Russian
army. But when they come, the worst the soldiers do is get drunk and fire their guns. It's a tense time, and
Christel's active curiosity leads her into all sorts of dangerous places.

Voices from the First World War
Brian MacArthur

Summary
Far more than an anthology, this gripping collection of writings tells the story of World War I from the
perspective of those who endured its horrors both at home and abroad. From the men who served in Europe
come accounts of fear, tedium, horror, and occasional joy, while those on the home front describe the pain of
waiting for news of their loved ones. Along with selections from letters, diary entries, and memoirs, famous songs
sung in the trenches as well as poems from soldiers and noted authors alike are also included. Together these
documents create a seamless and movingly immediate narrative of one of the century's most infamous conflicts.

Hitler?s Last Army


German POWs in Britain
Robin Quinn

Summary
Using original research, previously unseen photographs, and interviews with former POWs and their wives, this is
the story of the half-million German prisoners-of-war held captive in Britain during and after World War II

Adolf Hitler would have given anything to see such headlines in 1940 as these: "500,000 Enemy Troops on British
Soil!" Five years later, half a million German soldiers, sailors, and airmen did find themselves in the UK-but as
prisoners of the British government. Using recently declassified documents, this book reveals how Britain-in
defiance of the Geneva Convention-went on to detain these men for a further three years, and used them for
forced labor. As new interviews within these pages show, some Germans were surprised to discover a freedom
unknown in their homeland: "I felt like a guest . . . not any more a POW. I could hardly imagine that they had

Hitler's Foreign Executioners


Europe's Dirty Secret
Christopher Hale

Summary
How and why more than one million non-Germans joined Hitler's "war of annihilation"
Revealing for the first time Heinrich Himmler's master plan for Europe, this book discusses his dream of an SS
empire with no place for either the Nazi Party or Adolf Hitler. His astonishingly ambitious plan depended on the
recruitment of tens of thousands of "Germanic" peoples to build an "SS Europa." This book, researched in
archives all over Europe and using first-hand testimony, exposes Europe's dirty secret-that nearly half a million
Europeans and more than a million Soviet citizens enlisted in the armed forces of the Third Reich-to fight a
crusade against "Jewish-Bolshevism." No other historian has examined the connections between these SS
"foreign legions" (both police and Waffen-SS) and the Holocaust. Even today, some apologists claim that the
foreign volunteers were merely soldiers "like any other" and fought a decent war against Stalin's Red Army.
The History Press Christopher Hale demonstrates conclusively that these surprisingly common views are mistaken.

Hitler's Jihadis
Muslim Volunteers of the Waffen-SS
Jonathan Trigg

Summary
The story of tens of thousands of Muslims from as far away as India who volunteered to wear the SS double
lightning flashes and serve alongside their erstwhile conquerors
As the West finds itself embroiled in conflict with radical Islam, it is fascinating to hear the echoes of militant
Islam from World War II. This history gives insight into the prewar politics that inspired these Islamic volunteers,
who for the most part did not survive. Those who did survive the war and the bloody retribution that followed
saw the reputation of the units in which they served berated as militarily inept and castigated for atrocities
against unarmed civilians. Firsthand accounts and official records peel away the propaganda to reveal the
complexity that lies at the heart of the story of Hitler's most unlikely "Aryans."

Jungle Warriors
From Tobruk to Kokoda and Beyond, How the Australian Army Became the World's Most Deadly Jungle
Fighting Force
Adrian Threlfall

Summary
Fascinating and revelatory, how World War II transformed the Australian Army into one of the best, if not the
best, jungle fighting groups in the world

How did the Australian Army transform itself from a military force totally unprepared for conflict of any kind in
1939 into a professional, experienced, and highly skilled jungle warfare force by 1945? Jungle Warriors explores
how the 2nd AIF evolved from fighting European and desert wars, in open country and often with large numbers
of troops, to master the very close warfare of jungle combat. It investigates the extraordinary array of changes
to weapons, equipment, tactics, and training. It also reveals the painful lessons learned and the inadequate

La penultima frontera
Fugitivos del nazismo en Espana
Rosa Sala Rose, Josep Calvet

Summary
A combination of information from the archives and the memories of witnesses, this book sheds light on an
obscure chapter of World War II history. In the German-occupied France of 1940, those fleeing the Nazis sought
refuge and freedom in northern Africa or in the Americas, but fugitives had to overcome one last obstacle before
reaching their sanctuary: they had to pass through Spain. This fascinating historical account relates the
frequently tragic, occasionally wryly comic vicissitudes of 23 people who, for various reasons, ended up in
Spanish jails between 1940 and 1945 as they tried to find freedom.

Lancaster and the Tirpitz


The Story of the Legendary Bomber and How it Sunk
Tony Iveson

Summary
Written by a former Squadron Leader who took part in the raid and based around interviews with air
crew, ground crew, and their German adversaries This is the story of the Lancaster bomber and the sinking
of the battleship Tirpitz. Two of the most legendary war machines of World War II, they symbolized their nations'
quests for victory in history's greatest ever conflict. The Lancaster was Britain's main heavy bomber-RAF Bomber
Command's "Shining Sword"-whose role was to take the fight to the enemy, delivering deadly payloads to targets
deep in the heart of Germany. It was used in the famous Dam Buster raid, and later in the war carried out
critically important precision-bombing missions on targets such as the V-weapons complex at Peenemunde. The
Tirpitz was Germany's largest warship. This leviathan of a battleship boasted eight 15-inch guns and weighed
2,000 tons more than her sister ship the Bismarck which was sunk by the British in 1941. Stationed for most of

Lancaster Men
The Aussie Heroes of Bomber Command
Peter Rees

Summary
Over 10,000 Australians served with Bomber Command, a highly trained band of elite flyers who undertook some
of the most dangerous operations of World War II. They flew mission after mission over France and Germany,
knowing that the odds were against them. Stretched to breaking point, nearly 3,500 died in the air. Their
bravery in extreme circumstances has barely been recognized. Peter Rees traces the extraordinary achievements
of these young aviators. He tells their hair-raising stories of battle action and life on the ground. And he
recounts how, when they returned to Australia, they were greeted as Jap dodgers and accused of 'hiding in
England while we were doing it tough'. This is a book as compelling, as full of life and exciting as Desert Boys and
The Other Anzacs.

Letters from an Airfield


The True Story of a GI Bride of the Mighty Eighth
Jack Rosenthal

Summary
Using letters and photographs preserved by his mother, Jack Rosenthal reconstructs the wartime relationship of
his parents in this poignant and unconventional military history. Tracing their courtship from the day of its
beginning in March 1944, to its culmination in marriage in July 1945, the narrative ranges from a dramatic escape
after the fall of Hong Kong to the nightmares of the Arctic convoys and is supported by lively insights into the
histories and social circumstances of the four families involved. A fascinating insight into the human element of
war not usually covered by conventional military histories, this is a love story that has stood the test of time.

Using letters between soldiers and their loved ones, parents, sweethearts, wives, and children, this compilation

Nagasaki
The Massacre of the Innocent and Unknowing
Craig Collie

Summary
Using contemporary diaries and letters, mainly translated from Japanese, we follow a group of Nagasaki residents
from the early morning of the day of the bombing of Hiroshima to midnight on the day of the second bombing in
Nagasaki

In a compelling narrative based on eyewitness accounts, contemporary diaries, letters, and interviews, Craig
Collie collects the stories of the many levels of devastation suffered on that fateful day in Nagasaki. The war
was coming to an end at last. The people of Nagasaki knew this as they desperately tried to survive each day's
shortages of food and warmth-ordinary people going about their lives as normally as they could manage. People
like Nagai, the doctor who'd just been told he had leukemia; Father Tamaya, the Catholic priest who'd agreed to

Summary
A groundbreaking English-language examination of the final period of Nazi rule in Germany's eastern provinces at
the end of the Second World War, this work outlines the wartime role of this region and assesses the impact of
Nazi mobilization initiatives during the closing months of the conflict. Incorporating a unique synthesis of archival
and printed source material from the English-speaking world, Germany, Poland, and Russia, this book concludes
by weighing up the importance of propaganda and coercion to the Nazi regime as it attempted to prolong its
existence in the face of crushing military defeats. This extensive account of this important historical period and
circumstance is essential reading for all scholars and students of the Third Reich and European military history.

Normandiefront
D-Day to Saint-Lo Through German Eyes
Vince Milano, Bruce Conner

Summary
Based on firsthand testimony, this is the story of how one German division changed the course of the invasion,
and almost the war, featuring previously unpublished photographs from participants

In the cold morning of June 6, 1944, thousands of German soldiers were in position from Port en Bessin eastward
past Colleville on the Normandy coast, aware that a massive invasion force was heading straight for them,
although according to Allied Intelligence, they shouldn't have been there. The presence of 352 Division meant
that the number of defenders was literally double the number expected-and on the best fortified of all the
invasion beaches. This infantry division would ensure the invaders would pay a massive price to take Omaha
The History Press Beach. There were veterans from the Russian front among them and they were well trained and equipped. What
9780752471457 makes this account of the bloody struggle unique is that it is told from the German standpoint, using firsthand

Summary
This chronicle recounts a little-known passage in the history of the 20th century. It's an extraordinary odyssey
undertaken by a group of men and women who, in the middle of World War II and during the first years of the
postwar period, were commissioned to locate and rescue important works of art, including paintings by
Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Van Dyck, and Vermeer, which had been stolen by the Nazis. The author relied
on extensive research during which documents were consulted firsthand. The book has resulted in a 2014 film

Operation Barbarossa
Hitler's Invasion of Russia 1941
David M. Glantz

Summary
From a world expert on Hitler's war in Russia, this book on the operation that changed the course of World War II
includes updated information on casualty numbers and opposing forces
Here, David Glantz challenges the time-honored explanation that poor weather, bad terrain, and Hitler's faulty
strategic judgement produced German defeat, and reveals how the Red Army thwarted the German Army's
dramatic and apparently inexorable invasion before it achieved its ambitious goals. On June 22, 1941 Hitler
unleashed his forces on the Soviet Union. Spearheaded by four powerful Panzer groups and protected by an
impenetrable curtain of air support, the seemingly invincible Wehrmacht advanced from the Soviet Union's
western borders to the immediate outskirts of Leningrad, Moscow and Rostov in the shockingly brief period of
less than six months. The sudden, deep, relentless German advance virtually destroyed the entire peacetime Red
Army and captured almost 40 percent of European Russia before expiring inexplicably at the gates of Moscow

Operation Crossbow
The Untold Story of Photographic Intelligence and the Search for Hitler's V Weapons
Allan Williams

Summary
Told for the first time, the real story behind the top secret World War Two operations Crossbow and
Bodyline. How the top secret Aerial Reconnaissance unit at Medmenham in Buckinghamshire found and
destroyed the V-1 and V-2 sites at Peenemünde.

The story of the photographic intelligence work undertaken from a country house at Medmenham,
Buckinghamshire, is one of the great lost stories of the Second World War.

At its peak in 1944, almost 2,000 British and American men and women worked at the top-secret Danesfield
House, interpreting photographs—the majority stereoscopic so they could be viewed in 3D—to unlock secrets of
German military activity and weapons development. Millions of aerial photographs were taken by Allied pilots,

Operation Diver
Colin Dobinson

Summary
Operation Diver was Britain's air defense campaign against the V1 flying bomb towards the end of World War II.
It was a multi-faceted operation, mainly involving fighter aircraft, barrage balloons, searchlights, and anti-
aircraft guns. Although a great deal has been written about the V1, studies of the action have been dominated
by the fighter aircraft of the RAF, at the expense of the gunners of Anti-Aircraft Command. Their sources, to a
great extent, have remained unconsulted, and their story untold. Yet the Diver campaign was unquestionably
their greatest achievement of the war. No other episode in Britain's domestic wartime history resembled its
particular mix of concentration and scale, nor its focus on a single, wholly new weapon, and its breadth of
innovation and technological change. In Diver, Anti-Aircraft Command was required to transform itself from a
static and (by 1944) somewhat under-employed arm of the defense into a quasi-mobile, reactive force, facing a
fearsome weight of attack by continual adaptation and technical and tactical change. Most of Diver's senior

Operation Market Garden


The Legend of the Waal Crossing
Tim Lynch

Summary
A new interpretation of the wider military context of the doomed operation features previously unpublished
photographs and documents
Using first hand accounts and official records, this history examines the legend of the Waal Crossing and the
truth behind it, revealing how a culture of elitism mixed with national and personal rivalries led to arguably the
greatest Allied defeat of the war. On September 20, 1944, U.S. paratroopers launched a desperate, near suicidal
river-crossing in an effort to reach their airborne brethren trapped at Arnhem, only to see their efforts
squandered by British tank crews who, instead of racing ahead, sat down to drink tea. The story of the Waal
crossing-as told by American veterans of the operation-has become a part of the Arnhem legend, a legend of
airborne heroism set against the timidity of the armored forces sent to relieve them; of American professionalism
The History Press wasted by British incompetence. This history investigates what really happened, and why the operation was

Operation Neptune
The Prelude to D-Day
David Wragg

Summary
One of the most ambitious amphibious operations to ever take place, the story of Operation Neptune is the story
of D-Day at sea

Long-awaited, the Normandy landings were the largest amphibious operation in history. Success was achieved by
the advent of specialized landing craft, first seen in the landings in North Africa, heavy naval firepower, and the
creation of two artificial harbors, each the size of the port of Dover, and an underwater pipeline. This book tells
the story of this incredible feat using eyewitness accounts of the landings and the breaching of Hitler's famed
"Atlantic Wall." David Wragg explores the earlier Allied and Axis experiences with amphibious operations and the
planning for Neptune and Overlord. He reveals the naval support needed once the armies were ashore and before
Spellmount continental ports could be captured and cleared of mines, with operations such as minesweeping off the
9780752489223 Normandy coast which led to one of the worst "friendly fire" incidents of the war.

Operation Unthinkable
The Third World War: British Plans to Attack the Soviet Empire 1945
Jonathan Walker

Summary
A study of one of the great "what if"s of modern times-Churchill's proposed invasion of the Soviet Union as World
War II drew to a close

As the war in Europe entered its final months, the world teetered on the edge of a Third World War. While Soviet
forces smashed their way into Berlin, Churchill ordered British military planners to prepare the top secret
Operation Unthinkable-the plan for an Allied invasion of the Soviet Union on July 1, 1945. Using U.S., British, and
Polish forces, the invasion would reclaim Eastern Europe for the West. The plan called for the use of the atomic
bomb and Nazi troops if necessary-highly controversial, as the true extent of the Holocaust was becoming clear.

Organizing Victory
The War Conferences 1941?1945
Andrew Rawson

Summary
How decisions during World War II were made at the highest level, and how these decision affected every facet
of the war

To understand the end result of World War II is to understand the leaders organizing the action from behind the
scenes; from the main figureheads to the silent chiefs of staff, this history shows how the Allies planned World
War II, covering everything from the troop deployments and offensives to the locating of post-war boundaries
and surrender terms. Between December 1941 and August 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister
Winston S. Churchill, and sometimes Joseph Stalin met several times to discuss strategy with their Chiefs of
Staff. In particular, Churchill described U.S. Army Chief of Staff George C. Marshall in 1945 as the "organizer of

Prisoners of the Japanese


Literary Imagination and the Prisoner-of-War Experience
Roger Bourke

Summary
While there have been many memoirs and diaries of former prisoners of war held by the Japanese during World
War II, this is the first book to analyze the major works of fiction regarding the prisoner-of-war experience.
Covering such seminal works as Pierre Boulle's The Bridge on the River Kwai, Nevil Shute's A Town Like Alice, J. G.
Ballard's Empire of the Sun, and John Doyle's Australian television drama Changi, the study also draws on the
writings of Daniel Defoe and the Jewish-Italian Holocaust survivor Primo Levi. Striving for an international focus,
the book examines literature from the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, and the Netherlands.

Remembering Tommy
The British Soldier in the First World War
Peter Doyle

Summary
The British soldier of World War I has been depicted in many books. Invariably, a pen picture paints him as stoic,
joining the army in a wave of patriotic fervor, and destined to serve four years on the Western Front in some of
the most costly battles in history. Yet often the picture is difficult to resolve for the reader. How did the soldier
live, where did he sleep? What was it like to go over the top, and when he did, what did he carry with him? For
many, the idea of trench life is hazy, and usually involves "drowning in mud," in, as one writer put it, "the pitiless

Resistance
Craig Simpson

Summary
Norway, September 1943. For brothers Marek and Olaf, a hunting trip offers a brief chance to get away from the
German occupying forces. But returning home they witness the horror of their father's arrest by the Gestapo and
the start of a brutal regime under the evil Lieutenant Wold. When their daring plan for revenge goes horribly
wrong, they are forced to seek refuge in the vast and unforgiving Norwegian wilderness. Marek is captivated by
the courage and determination of the Resistance freedom-fighters who save the two brothers from an icy grave.
He may not be a crack shot like his brother, but he is quick-thinking, resourceful, and a talented mechanic. With
youth on his side, the Germans probably won't suspect him to be a part of the ambitious sabotage attack
planned by the fighters. But can he keep his nerve, especially when the final assault throws his friends and
family into the path of the enemy?

A Teenager's Chronicle of Combat and Captivity in Nazi Germany

Summary
Drawing on a vast array of original source material that has survived for decades and previously classified
information, this thrilling narrative history documents a young soldier's miraculous survival in war-torn Europe
during World War II. Soon after joining the U.S. Army Corps, a wiry, baby-faced 17-year-old found himself a
seasoned warrior desperately battling head-to-head against the Luftwaffe's best fighter pilots over Nazi
Germany. Having amazingly escaped the fiery wreckage of his B-17, he relied on his ingenuity and determination
to get him through two bitter winters in confinement as a POW in the infamous Stalag 17. Along with other
American prisoners, he was coerced to flee the rapidly advancing Red Army as the European war came to a close
and endure a brutal 18-day march where he witnessed firsthand the horrors of the Mauthausen concentration
camp. Weighing an emaciated 110 pounds, he was finally rescued by Patton's Third Army just days before

Rudolf Hess: The Last Word


A New Technical Analysis of the Hess Flight, May 1941
John Harris, Richard Wilbourn

Summary
No one can resist a good conspiracy theory-particulary if it involves the MI6, the Nazis, and the Royal Family-
and the one behind Rudolf Hess' flight to Scotland during WWII has yet to be debunked

On May 10, 1941, on a whim, Hitler's deranged deputy Rudolf Hess flew a Messerschmitt Bf 110 to Scotland in a
bizarre effort to make peace with Britain. Goering sent fighters to stop him but he was long gone. Arrested and
tried at Nuremberg, he would die by his own hand in 1987, aged 93. That's the official story. Ever since,
conspiracy theories have swirled around the famous mission. How strong were his connections with the British
establishment, including royalty? Was the death of the king's brother the Duke of York associated with the Hess
overture for peace? In the several books on Hess, one obvious line of inquiry has been overlooked until now-an

Smoke and Mirrors


Q-Ships against the U-Boats in the First World War
Deborah Lake

Summary
The Q-ship, an ordinary merchant vessel with concealed guns, came into its own during World War I, when used
by the Royal Navy to trap and destroy German U-boats. The Q-ship operations are covered here in detail, by
following the careers of the eight men who won the Victoria Cross on Special Service Operations; and by
accounts of German U-boat crews being on the receiving end. No book on Q-ships can avoid the Baralong
incident in which a Q-ship's crew allegedly executed the survivors of the German submarine U-27, on August 19,
1915. In a subsequent encounter with U-41, more British atrocities were alleged by the only two German
survivors. Revealing extracts from the diary of a Royal Marine who served on board the Baralong are reproduced
here, together with other first-hand accounts. With charge and counter-charge, this incident provides a
fascinating story.

Operation Rubble, 147 Willing Volunteers and 25,000 Tons of Ball Bearings

Summary
Operation Rubble, the long forgotten secret mission to steal back ball bearings from the Nazis and keep the war
effort alive

In 1940, the Nazis hoped to cripple the British war effort by blockading Swedish cargo ships containing ball
bearings, steel, and tools vital for making arms and equipment. Out of desperation, the newly formed SOE was
asked to rescue these badly needed supplies and a daring escapade was conjured up to sneak in under German
noses and steal the ships. It was a dangerous mission and the 147 men involved knew there was a high chance
they would not come home. The terrifying mission to rescue cargo of ball bearings in clunky transport ships,
while trying to outrun the Luftwaffe and German navy had never been attempted before and was never
The History Press successfully repeated. This is the story of a forgotten adventure that saved Britain and her troops from certain

Spitfire in Combat
Alfred Price

Summary
Probably the most famous fighter aircraft of all time, the Supermarine Spitfire's distinctive shape and sound mark
it out from most other aircraft of the World War II period. From the biplane era of the 1930s to the start of the
jet age in 1944, the Spitfire, through continuous modification and development, remained at the forefront of
fighter design and proved itself equal or superior to any of its competitors. During the same period, other
variants of the Spitfire proved highly effective in the photographic reconnaissance role. Alfred Price covers
aspects of the aircraft's history as diverse as the "Speed Spitfire," specially modified in 1938 for an attempt on
the world landplane speed record. Fully illustrated, this is an ideal primer for those whose interest in the Spitfire
is just beginning, while the details of all WWII key aviation battles are sure to add to the knowledge of those

Take Budapest!
The Struggle for Hungary Autumn 1944
Kamen Nevenkin

Summary
Describes the failed attempt of the Red Army to capture Budapest and Vienna in late 1944, in order to forestall
the Western Allies in Central Europe-with previously unpublished photographs

October 1944: Soviet troops launched a powerful attack on Budapest from the south, the culmination of a series
of military, political, diplomatic, and underground moves undertaken by Hitler, Stalin, and Churchill since the
collapse of the Axis front in the Balkans two months earlier. However, what had been planned as a bold stroke to
knock Hungary out of the war and bring the Red Army as far as Munich quickly became a stalemate. The end
result was that Stalin's forces failed to reach Bavaria, but the dictator was not disappointed: Soviet pressure
against the German southern flank forced Hitler to transfer a considerable number of his armored reserves to

The Banzai Hunters


The Forgotten Armada of Little Ships That Defeated the Japanese, 1944-45
Peter Haining

Summary
General W. J. "Bill" Slim's bloody and fraught victory over the Japanese on the mainland would not have been
possible without the springboard provided by a remarkable assortment of army and navy men. In this thoroughly
researched and accessible analysis, Peter Haining details their insidious assaults. They traveled in small boats,
landing craft, and even frogman suits, making their way along the rivers and onto the islands along the eastern
coast of Burma. Together, they opened the way for a turning point as vital as El Alamein in the Western Desert
or D-Day on the Normandy beaches. The Japanese response is also illustrated, depicting how Lieutenant General
Sakurai instituted his own missions, ordering his men to show no mercy and take no prisoners. Largely based on
personal stories by the men who served, it also draws on documents and information from naval and army
records.

The Battle of Matapan 1941


The Trafalgar of the Mediterranean
Mark Simmons

Summary
A new assessment of one of the Royal Navy's greatest victories

Including a new look at Axis strategy, this book explores the remarkable victories of Taranto and Matapan as
seen through the eyes of the men who manned the ships and flew the aircraft of the Mediterranean Fleet. In
March 1941, the Royal Navy scored one of the greatest one-sided victories against the Italian Fleet the Regia
Marina at Matapan, bringing to an end six months of remarkable success for the Royal Navy in the
Mediterranean. When France fell and Italy declared war on Britain, Admiral Dudley Pound had wanted to
evacuate the Mediterranean altogether and concentrate on home defense, but Churchill overruled him,
making the Mediterranean the focus of British land operations for four years, reliant on the Royal Navy.

The Bedford Triangle


US Undercover Operations from England in World War Two
Martin W. Bowman

Summary
The U.S. Army Air Force (USAAF), American Office of Strategic Services (OSS), and British Special Operations
Executive (SOE) jointly played a crucial part in operations behind enemy lines in occupied Europe during World
War II. Milton Ernest Hall, a country house in Bedfordshire and official UK headquarters of the U.S. Army Airforce
Service Command, was located at the heart of a network of top secret Allied Radio and propaganda transmitting
stations, political warfare units, and undercover American and British formations dealing in espionage and
subterfuge. Martin Bowman draws upon revealing first-hand accounts and official documentary evidence to
provide tantalizing glimpses of the cloak and dagger operations. The author's extensive research has revealed
that Allied Secret Service organizations participated in even more unorthodox activities, such as clandestine
propaganda and political warfare. He also reveals the truth behind what really happened to legendary band

The Children Who Fought Hitler


A British Outpost in Europe
Sue Elliott

Summary
Few people know that Ypres, center of First World War remembrance, was once home to a thriving British
community that played a heroic role in the Second World War. This expatriate outpost grew around the British
ex-servicemen who cared for the war memorials and cemeteries of Flanders Fields. Many married local women
and their children grew up multi-lingual, but attended their own school and were intensely proud to be British.
When Germany invaded in 1940 the community was threatened-some children managed to escape, while others
were not so lucky. Armed with their linguistic skills and local knowledge, the pupils of the British Memorial School
in Ypres were uniquely prepared to fight Hitler in occupied territory and from Britain. Still in their teens, some
risked capture, torture, and death in intelligence and resistance operations. An exceptional patriotism spurred
them on to unparalleled feats of bravery. While their peers at home were being evacuated to the English
John Murray countryside, these children were directly exposed to danger in one of the major theatres of war. This is their

German Anti-Aircraft Defences 1935?1945: Weapons, Emplacements, Equipments

Summary
The last line of defense-the men, weapons, and fortifications of the German anti-aircraft teams

During World War II, as the Allies sent thousands of aircraft to attack the German homeland, it was the flak
teams that stood as the last line of defense. This handbook covers all aspects of German antiaircraft artillery: its
development from the first antiballoon artillery in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 to the sophisticated ground-
to-air rockets in use by 1945; the administrative, strategical, and tactical organizations involved; and the
variety of weapons used. It details the uniforms worn by the men including flags, badges, and medals; equipment
used such as searchlights, range finders, and radar; and mobile flak emplacements and permanent fortifications.

The Last Days of Hitler


Hugh Trevor-Roper

Summary
The classic account of Hitler's fall from power, first published in 1947, reissued with a striking new cover

In September 1945 the fate of Adolf Hitler was a complete mystery. He had simply disappeared, and had been
missing for four months. Hugh Trevor-Roper, an intelligence officer, was given the task of solving the mystery.
His brilliant piece of detective work not only proved finally that Hitler had killed himself in Berlin, but also
produced one of the most fascinating history books ever written. This is the extraordinary story of those last
days of the Thousand Year Reich in the Berlin Bunker. Besieged in the shattered capital, but still dominating the
remains of his court, Hitler reiterated the original alternative of Nazism: either total victory or annihilation. This
book is the record of that carefully prepared, ceremonious finale to a terrible chapter of history.

Summary
An account of the race for secret Nazi aviation technology at the end of World War II

During World War II, Hitler's engineers had pioneered an incredible array of futuristic secret weapons, from the
Me 262, the first operational jet fighter, to the deadly V2 intercontinental ballistic missile. With the Third Reich
shattered and lying in ruins, in the summer of 1945, the Allies launched a frantic race to grab what they saw as
the justifiable spoils of war. The Americans and Russians in particular were anxious to secure not only the
aircraft and the research and production facilities, but also the key German scientists and engineers. This Nazi
technology would define the balance of power in the phony peace of the Cold War era, launching an arms race

The Real Enigma Heroes


Phil Shanahan

Summary
In this captivating story, the three men who risked their lives to capture the key to the Nazi Enigma
code are detailed. The capture of the Enigma codes helped shorten World War II by at least a year and
without their quick actions, the codes might never have been broken. On the night of October 30, 1942, three
men from HMS Petard clambered aboard a sinking German U-boat: First Lieutenant Tony Fasson, accompanied by
Able Seaman Colin Grazier, and Tommy Brown. Passing codebooks up through the hatch, Fasson and Grazier were
caught aboard the sub as she suddenly sank. Brown was saved, along with the code books. It wasn't until 1969
that the men were mentioned for their work in rescuing the Enigma codes and this extraordinary story tells of
how these three brave men ultimately saved countless Allied lives and shortened the war.

The Real Enigma Heroes


Phil Shanahan

Summary
The incredible story of three men who risked their lives to capture the key to the Nazi Enigma code
For almost 60 years after their deaths, three men whose brave actions shortened World War II by as much as
two years remained virtually unknown and uncelebrated. Two lost their lives retrieving vital German codebooks
from a sinking U-boat. The third survived the war, only to die in a house fire soon afterwards. But it was the
precious documents they seized in October 1942 that enabled Bletchley Park's code-breakers to crack Enigma
and so win the Battle of the Atlantic. Now recognized as a pivotal moment in world history, three British
servicemen made it possible to finally beat the U-boats, but at the time not even their families could be told of
the importance of their deeds. Shrouded in secrecy for decades, then recast as fictional Americans by the
Hollywood film U-571, this book sets the record straight. It is written in celebration of Colin Grazier GC, Tony
The History Press Fasson GC, and Tommy Brown GM-the real Enigma heroes.

Summary
In this moving account, the diaries of prisoners and other historical evidence are provided to exemplify the
positive and humanizing force of sports amidst hellish POW camp condition. Whether Australian prisoners-of-war
played Aussie-rules football at the infamous Changi Prison or tennis on the Burmese side of the Burma-Thailand
Railway, the idea of engaging in recreational sports-sometimes with their captors-in Japanese POW camps
contradicts the popular notion of the horror and suffering associated with WWII. Answering questions such as
Were sports the one link to normalcy? Did playing prove that the men were still tough despite defeat? and What
did sports mean to these soldiers?, this record demonstrates how morale was boosted in the most dire of times.

The Strength of a Nation


Six Years of Australians Fighting For the Nation and Defending the Homefront in World War II
Michael McKernan

Summary
This comprehensive history of Australia's often overlooked but important role in World War II, in which one million
service members from a country with a population of seven million served, is based on the moving and emotional
personal stories of soldiers who served on the front lines and of prominent politicians on the home front.
Campaigns in which Australian soldiers played a significant role are discussed, including those in North Africa, the
Middle East, New Guinea, and the Anzac Corps in Greece. A controversial discussion of the home front in wartime
Australia concentrates on political leaders, including Thomas Blamey, Commander-in-Chief; Robert Menzies, Prime
Minister from 1939-1941; and John Curtin, Prime Minister from 1941-1945.

The World At War


The Landmark Oral History from the Previously Unpublished Archives
Richard Holmes

Summary
A unique oral history is now available to us in the never-before-published interviews of the landmark TV series.

The World at War is the definitive television work on the Second World War. It set out to tell the story of the
war through the testimony of key participants - from civilians to ordinary soldiers, from statesmen to generals.
First broadcast in 1973, the result was a unique and irreplaceable record, since many of the eyewitnesses
captured on film did not have long to live.

The programme's producers committed hundreds of interview hours to tape in its creation, but only a fraction of
that material made it to the final cut. For more than thirty years, the interviews have never been allowed to be

U-Boats Attack!
The Battle of the Atlantic Witnessed by the Wolf Packs
Jak P. Mallman Showell

Summary
Readers can view the Battle of the Atlantic through U-boat periscopes thanks to incredible eyewitness accounts
bringing to life the horror of this war below and above sea
Readers will taste the salt, smell the nauseating stench of the U-boats, and hear orders being whispered quietly
while diving back in time to the horrendous inhumanity of the Battle of the Atlantic. The longest continuous
military campaign of the Second World War, raging from 1939 to 1945, the Battle of the Atlantic saw the might
of the Royal Navy pitted against the Kriegsmarine. The Germans' secret weapon was their fleet of U-boats-they
had the largest fleet of submarines in the world, enabling them to play cat and mouse with the Allied forces to
devastating effect. They would hunt in "wolf-packs" and would prey on merchant shipping and naval vessels.
This startling book tells the story of this battle as viewed through the conning towers of these U-boats. It is

Understand the Second World War


Alan Farmer

Summary
Full of fascinating details and anecdotes, this is an accessible introduction to one of the most important, tragic,
and costly events in history
Charting the main military campaigns, this book examines the path to Allied victory and its impact on the
countries involved. It explores such questions as Why did Hitler declare war on the U.S.? Why did the Allied
powers out-produce the Axis powers? Who was the most effective leader? Should American and British strategy
have been different? and Should the U.S. have dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? This
engaging alternative to traditional textbooks includes discussion of the contemporary significance of the war.

Vinnie's War
David McRobbie

Summary
The story of a homeless boy who starts by losing everything, and-through his experience as an evacuee in World
War II-finds friendship, vocation, and a place to belong. When Vinnie is sent away from the bombs in London, he
has no idea what awaits him-all he has left of his old life is his harmonica. On the train, Vinnie meets fierce
Kathleen, sweet Joey, and gangly Dobbs. The evacuee children find themselves thrown together in the country
town of Netterfold, which seems beautiful and peaceful-until they meet the locals. There is a war raging across
Europe, but Vinnie and his friends soon find they have their own war to fight as they face up to terrifying
teachers, bad billets, and hostile neighborhood kids who set out to make their lives as "vaccies" miserable. And
when things start to go missing, they discover that there are mysteries lurking in Netterfold's shadows, just
waiting to be solved. Through music and friendship, can Vinnie make peace and finally find a place where he
belongs?

When Daddy Came Home


How War Changed Family Life Forever

Summary
Compelling and moving real-life accounts of the impact of the return of the troops at the end of the
Second World War.

Summer 1945. Britain was in jubilant mood. At last, the war was over. Soon the men would be coming home.
Then everything would be fine: life would get back to normal.

Or would it? Six long years of war had profoundly changed family life. For years, Dad had been a khaki figure in a
photograph on the wall, a crumpled letter from overseas, an occasional visitor on weekend leave. Now he was
here to stay, a stranger in a group that had learned to live without him—and was not always prepared to have

World War II
A Military History
Alan Warren

Summary
In World War I many battles on the Western Front lasted weeks or months, often degenerating into glacial and
indecisive campaigns of attrition. By the 1930s, however, military science had recreated the possibility of a
decisive battle. An unprecedented rate of technological change meant that a stream of new inventions were
readily at hand for military innovators to exploit. Aircraft, armored vehicles, and new forms of motorized transport
became available to make possible a fresh style of offensive warfare when the next European war began in 1939.
A belief in the importance of effective war fighting was vital to the Nazi vision of Germany's future. Nazi
Germany's political and military leaders aimed for rapid and decisive victory in battle. From 1939-1945 new
ideologies and new machines of war carried destruction across the globe.

British Soldiers of the Korean War


In Their Own Words
Stephen F. Kelly

Summary
More than 30,000 British troops fought in Korea between 1950 and 1953 and more than 3,000 died, with over
1,000 being captured and held in atrocious conditions by the Chinese or Koreans. At least half of those captured
died in prison camps. More than 70 per cent of those who fought were 18-19 year olds doing national service.
They were poorly trained and ill-equipped, fighting much of their time in snowy trenches. This book, for the first
time, tells the story of these ordinary soldiers, as well as sailors and airmen, in their own words. It has the full
backing of the British Korean Veterans Association, which has over 5,000 members. Most of the veterans are
now in their eighties and this will be the last chance for them to tell their tale. So soon after the Second World
War, this was a war Britain did not need but she remained steadfast by the side of the Americans, fighting in a
hostile environment more than 6,000 miles away in a country nobody could point to on a map. The 'Special
The History Press Relationship' may be a joke to some now - it wasn't then.

Defining Moments: The Korean War


Leif A. Gruenberg

Summary
Providing more than merely a military history of the Korean War, this record offers a complete assessment of the
conflict in both factual and anecdotal formats. Following a brief history of Korea, this detailed book chronicles
the events leading to the North Korean invasion of the south and discusses the United Nations' response. All
aspects of the war itself are discussed, including the tumultuous command of U.N. forces, the two years of
bloody stalemate, the atrocities committed by both sides during the war, and the ceasefire that ended the
fighting but did not resolve the conflict. Finally, this history examines the impact made by the Korean War and
supplies biographies for Dwight Eisenhower, Kim Il Sung, and Harry Truman.

Ship of Miracles
14,000 Lives and One Miraculous Voyage
Bill Gilbert, Alexander M Haig

Summary
It was a miracle worthy of the season. When Captain Leonard La Rue spied from his twelve-man merchant ship,
the Meredith Victory, the throng of Korean refugees on the docks of a city in flames, he didn't hesitate to do
what others would consider impossible. In December of 1950, La Rue and his skeleton crew rescued fourteen
thousand Korean refugees from the hands of the rapidly-approaching Chinese army in the city of Hungnam.
Through the night and next day, a seemingly endless succession of refugees boarded the Meredith, their will to
live and strong spirit steeling them against the bitter cold and incredibly crowded conditions. Standing shoulder
to shoulder for three days the refugees and crew stoically endured as La Rue steered the ship through sea
battle, a thirty-mile web of sea mines, and enemy shelling. Ship of Miracles is the incredible story of what has
been called "the greatest rescue operation by a single ship in the history of mankind." Against all odds, the little

Australia and the Vietnam War


Peter Edwards

Summary
In this landmark book, award-winning historian Peter Edwards skillfully unravels the complexities of the global
Cold War, decolonization in Southeast Asia, and Australian domestic politics. The Vietnam War was Australia's
longest and most controversial military commitment of the 20th century, ending in humiliation for the United
States and its allies with the downfall of South Vietnam. The war provoked deep divisions in Australian society
and politics, particularly because for the first time young men were conscripted for overseas service in a highly
contentious ballot system. The Vietnam era is still identified with diplomatic, military, and political failure. Was
Vietnam a case of Australia fighting "other people's wars"? Were we really "all the way" with the United States?
How valid was the "domino theory"? Did the Australian forces develop new tactical methods in earlier Southeast
Asian conflicts, and just how successful were they against the unyielding enemy in Vietnam? This book provides
new, often surprising, answers to these questions.

Battle Story: Tet Offensive 1968


Andrew Rawson

Summary
The Viet Cong campaign that shook the United States

By January 31, 1968, the U.S. had been fighting the Vietnam War for more than 10 years, but the American
people never thought they wouldn't win. The Tet Offensive changed all that. Over seven bloody months the
North Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong launched hundreds of attacks across South Vietnam, hitting military
and political targets, including the U.S. embassy. While the attacks in and around Saigon in the south were
quashed quickly, there was a prolonged battle for the city of Hue in the north. The 77-day siege captured the
imagination of the world as the Marines fought a desperate battle against overwhelming odds. As the offensive
petered out and the U.S. military reestablished control, the generals in Saigon and the politicians in Washington,
D.C. were forced to reassess their strategy for South Vietnam. Involving more than 1.5 million combatants, of
whom more than 50,000 were killed, not to mention the thousands of civilian casualties, the Tet Offensive was a

Expendable Elite (2nd Edition)


One Soldier's Journey into Covert Warfare
Daniel Marvin, Douglas Valentine, Kris Millegan

Summary
Exposing the unique nature of the United States' elite fighting force, this narrative reveals how covert operations
are often masked to permit and even sponsor assassination, outright purposeful killing of innocents, illegal use of
force, and bizarre methods in combat operations. Through this compelling memoir, the author reveals the fear
these warriors share not of the enemy they have been trained to fight in battle, but of the wrath of the U.S.
government should they find themselves classified as "expendable."

Sappers' War
How the Legendary Aussie Tunnel Rats Fought the Vietcong
Jimmy Thomson

Summary
We make and we break.

They were the forward scouts, the mine clearers, the bridge builders, and the tunnel rats. They were frequently
not just on the front line, but right at the sharp end of the action. They were the legendary Aussie sappers, the
army engineers, who were literally everywhere in the fighting against the Vietcong. This special breed of soldier
lived hard and played hard. They were there at the beginning of the war, and they were also among the last to
leave. Along the way they fought with their fellow soldiers in infantry and tanks to bear the brunt of the
Vietcong's revenge. To the rest of the world, Vietnam was a conflict of ideologies. On the ground it was a battle
of wits, and the sappers were at the forefront. This is their story.

Tunnel Rats
The larrikin Aussie legends who discovered the Vietcong's secret weapon
Sandy MacGregor, Jimmy Thomson

Summary
The thrilling story of the young Australian Army engineers of 3 Field Troop who were the first allied soldiers to
risk their lives in the darkness of the Vietcong tunnels of South Vietnam. Staring death squarely in the face
every day, these young Australian Army engineers not only followed their enemy down into these unknown
underground labyrinths, but matched the Vietcong's jungle warfare skills and defused thousands of their clever
booby traps. Off duty, it was a different story. The bad boys of 3 Field Troop were a boozing, brawling, bonking
bunch of larrikins, who cut a swathe through the bars and brothels of Saigon, fought American Military Police to
a standstill, built a secret casino, and booby-trapped their own HQ to teach their officers a lesson. Thrilling,
inspiring, and action packed, this is the true story of the unsung heroes of Australia's war in Vietnam. Living up
to their motto of "We Make and We Break," they created the legend of the Tunnel Rats.

Vietnam
The Complete Story of the Australian War
Bruce Davies, Gary McKay

Summary
Vietnam remains one of most controversial and difficult wars that has been fought. On the 50th anniversary of
Australia's first involvement comes Vietnam: The Complete Story of the Australian War, for anyone who wishes
to understand why Australia went to war, and wants to make sense of the intensely unrelenting warfare. For
Bruce Davies and Gary McKay, the history of Vietnam-its wars, colonial domination, its search for freedom, and
its subsequent loss-speaks to an Australian anxiety of a very small population far away from the center of an
empire to which it was firmly committed. The rise of Japan, the War in the Pacific, and the postcolonial
independence of the peoples of Southeast Asia, coupled with the mercurial influence of Ho Chi Minh and the rise
of communism, form the background to the commitment of Australian forces. Vietnam takes the reader to the
front line, describing the experiences of soldier, politician, villager, enemy; and into the war room to unpick the
Allen & Unwin military and political strategies. We see the challenges the Australians faced against not only a dogged enemy,

The Role of US Diplomacy in the Lead-Up to the Six Day War


Balancing Moral Commitments and National Interests
Zaki Shalom

Summary
The outbreak of the Six Day War was primarily the outcome of the tense relations between Israel and Syria in
the period preceding the war. Aware of Israel's overall military superiority, the radical Syrian regime believed that
the only way to defeat the -Zionist entity- was by guerilla warfare, termed -the people's war-. The Syrian aim
was to keep up continuous limited military strikes against Israel, which they determined would bring about a
gradual weakening of the Jewish state's military power and political stability, eventually forcing Israel to
acquiesce to Arab demands. … Israel, with the unwavering backing of the United States, retaliated fiercely
against the Syrian provocations; the clear policy orientation was the regime's demise. Egypt, presenting itself as
leader of the Arab world, could not remain unresponsive towards this escalating military tension and ignore
Syria's political distress. President Nasser therefore decided to send troops into Sinai, followed by a blockade of

Above the Din of War


Afghans Speak About Their Lives, Their Country, and Their Future?and Why America Should Listen
Peter Eichstaedt

Summary
What will happen when international forces finally vacate Afghanistan? The answer to that question is unknown,
but if there is any hope for Afghanistan, veteran journalist Peter Eichstaedt asserts, it is with its people.

After spending 2004 in Afghanistan working for the nonprofit Institute for War and Peace Reporting and helping
build Afghanistan's first independent news agency, Eichstaedt returned to Kabul in 2010. As he worked with
Afghan journalists to document their history and collective struggles, he realized that although Kabul itself
appeared cleaned up, with freshly paved roads, the optimism of the newly liberated capital had faded under the
rise of the Taliban insurgency. Eichstaedt subsequently crisscrossed the country to interview an astonishing
array of Afghans. In Above the Din of War, he shares these conversations, including emotional and critical

The Crimson Snow


Britain's First Disaster in Afghanistan
Jules Stewart, General Sir David Richards

Summary
"We must see what the morning brings and then think what can be done," said Major General Elphinstone, when
told of the rampaging mob outside his residency in Kabul, 1841. Was former Prime Minister Tony Blair wrong in
2001 to allow Britain to be drawn into a fourth conflict in Afghanistan, just as it was wrong for Britain to go into
that country in 1839 without a shred of evidence to support widespread fears of imminent Russian invasion? The
result of this misadventure was the worst single military disaster the Raj ever suffered: a column of 16,000
troops, their families and camp followers were massacred on the retreat from Kabul.

The Last Warlord


The Life and Legend of Dostum, the Afghan Warrior Who Led US Special Forces to Topple the Taliban
Regime
Brian Glyn Williams

Summary
The Last Warlord tells the spellbinding story of the legendary Afghan warlord Abdul Rashid Dostum, a larger-
than-life figure who guided US Special Forces to victory over the Taliban after 9/11. Having gained
unprecedented access to General Dostum and his family and subcommanders, as well as local chieftains, mullahs,
elders, Taliban prisoners, and women's rights activists, scholar Brian Glyn Williams paints a fascinating portrait of
this Northern Alliance Uzbek commander who has been shrouded in mystery and contradicting hearsay. In
contrast to sensational media accounts that have mythologized the "bear of a man with a gruff laugh" who
"some Uzbeks swear, has on occasion frightened people to death," Williams carefully chronicles Dostum's rise
from peasant villager to Uzbek leader and skilled strategist who has fought a long and bitter war against the

Wings
The RAF at War, 1912-2012
Patrick Bishop

Summary
The Royal Air Force is synonymous with its heroic achievements in the summer of 1940, when Winston Churchill's
'famous few' held Goering's Luftwaffe at bay in the Battle of Britain, thereby changing the course of the war. For
much of the 20th century, warplanes were fixed in the world's imagination, a symbol of the perils and
excitements of the modern era. Aviators have always seemed different to soldiers and sailors-more adventurous
and imaginative. Their stories gripped the public and in both wars and air aces dominated each side's
propaganda, capturing hearts and dreams. Writing with the verve, passion and the sheer narrative aplomb
familiar to many thousands of readers from his bestselling World War II aerial histories, Fighter Boys and Bomber
Boys, Patrick Bishop's Wings is a rich and compelling account of military flying from its heroic early days to the
present.

An Australian Warship in the Korean War
Anthony Cooper

Summary
A unique account of Australia's involvement in the Korean War, this record tells the story of destroyer HMAS
Bataan's 1952 tour of duty. Written from two contrasting perspectives-namely from a "lower deck" seaman and
an "upper deck" commander-this narrative draws on a variety of archival sources, including the ship's monthly
log, a collection of poetry written aboard the ship during the war, letters, and photographs. Peppered with
intimate insights from the unpublished notebooks, this chronicle will entice those interested in naval and military
history.

Hunter Killers
Iain Ballantyne

Summary
Official Royal Navy definition: Hunter Killer: a submarine designed to pursue and attack enemy submarines and
surface ships using torpedoes

Hunter Killers follows the careers of four daring British submarine captains who risked their lives during the Cold
War to keep the rest of the world safe, their exploits consigned to the shadows until now. Their experiences
encompass the span of the Cold War, from voyages in WWII-era submarines under Arctic ice to nuclear-powered
espionage missions in Soviet-dominated seas. There are dangerous encounters with Russian spy ships in UK
waters and, finally, as the communist facade begins to crack, they hold the line against the Kremlin's oceanic
might, playing a leading role in bringing down the Berlin Wall. It is the first time they have spoken out about their
covert lives in the submarine service. This is the dramatic untold story of Britain's most secret service.

The Shipwreck Cannibals


Captain John Dean and the Boon Island Flesh Eating Scandal
Adam Nightingale

Summary
A long forgotten tale gets a new life as this book reveals the true story of the 18th-century shipwreck
cannibalism scandal

During the fierce winter of 1710, 14 Englishmen had taken refuge on Boon Island, a sparse 100-yard long stretch
of rock, without food or adequate shelter, uncertain of when or if they would be rescued. They endured for 24
days. An attempt to escape failed and four men died. Facing starvation, their captain, John Dean, gave the
order to butcher and eat a member of the crew. Dean's decision fended off starvation and sustained his crew
until rescue. John Dean first emerged an unlikely hero, but soon thereafter an alternative version of events
began to circulate. The First Mate painted Dean as a murderous fraudster, tyrant, and an enthusiastic consumer

Artillery
A History
John Norris

Summary
A dynamic history showing the development and use of artillery since the first primitive weapons of the 11th
century
Through detailed research, John Norris has traced the development of artillery through the ages and up to the
dawn of the 21st century, to provide a fascinating study of this principal weapon of warfare. From its earliest
recorded use in battle about a millennium ago, up to the recent Gulf War, Balkan, and Afghanistan conflicts,
artillery has often been the deciding factor in battle; and yet its origins are somewhat vague. The Chinese had
been working with gunpowder since the 10th century, yet it was another 200 years before the compound was
used to propel a projectile from a long-barreled bamboo piece of apparatus. Not long after this, the use of
artillery spread to Europe and changed the art of warfare. This book traces the development of artillery and its

Most Secret
The Hidden History of Orford Ness
Paddy Heazell, Dick Strawbridge

Summary
Reveals the history of Britain's most hidden research and testing site for the military

Orford Ness is so secret a place that most people have never even heard of it. Yet, the role it played in
inventing and testing weapons over the course of the 20th century was far more significant and much longer
than that of Bletchley Park. Nestled on a remote part of the Suffolk coast, Orford Ness operated for more than
80 years as a highly classified research and testing site for the British military, the Atomic Research
Establishment, and, at one point, even the U.S. Department of Defense. The work conducted here by some of
the greatest "boffins" of past generations played a crucial role in winning the three great wars of the 20th
century: the First, Second, and the Cold. This book reveals an incredible history, rich with ingenuity and intrigue,

Weapons and Warfare in Late Medieval Europe


Mike Ingram

Summary
Using innovative new reconstruction and archeological techniques, this is a fresh look at the weapons and
tactics that changed the face of warfare-an ideal sourcebook for reenactors, war gamers, and military
enthusiasts

The sword, the staff weapon, the bow and crossbow, and gunpowder artillery were the weapons of the late
middle ages. This book examines each weapon system in detail, covering its history and use with examples from
the battlefields of Europe. It explores how the technology of the day transformed the tactics and the
organization of the four main military powers in Europe-the Swiss, the Burgundians, the French, and English. The
author uses contemporary documents with the latest archeological research, reconstructions, and his own
The History Press experiences as a military reenactor to explore what it was like to fight with these weapons on the front line. He

Cloak of Enemies
Churchill's SOE, Enemies at Home and the Cockleshell Heroes
Tom Keene

Summary
Revealing the back-room politics and scandal behind the birth of the Special Operations Executive

The Special Operations Executive was conceived by Churchill in 1940 to "set Europe ablaze." Yet, SOE was to
have many enemies at home before it was even officially sanctioned. As Britain fought for survival, SOE struggled
to fend off and outwit Whitehall rivals who threatened its very existence. Revealing a back-stabbing climate of
secrecy, rivalry, confusion, and duplication, this book discusses the true cost of that rivalry, the steps that were
taken to snuff out SOE, and the tragic effect that a campaign to discredit SOE had upon Operation Frankton,
the iconic, small-unit commando raid of World War II that has passed into military legend as the Cockleshell
Heroes. In the raid, frail canoes paddled deep into the heart of enemy territory to plant limpet mines on German

SAS: Phantoms of War


A History of the Australian Special Air Service
David Horner

Summary
This definitive history recounts the secretive operations and strategies of one of the world's most elite fighting
forces. The Special Air Service (SAS) operated deep behind enemy lines, conducting surveillance at close range,
poised to spring into action at a moment's notice. This Australian military classic tells the story of the formation
of the military known to the Viet Cong as "phantoms of the jungle," its secret role in Borneo during confrontation
with Indonesia, and its operations in Vietnam. After its involvement in Vietnam, the SAS formed a crack counter-
terrorist force that saw action in Somalia, Kuwait, and East Timor and in the security of the 2000 Olympic
Games.

Sky Men
Robert Kershaw

Summary
From the 1930s through WWII to Afghanistan today, from total war to counterinsurgency, this history unravels
and defines the intangible qualities that differentiate the "Sky Men" from other soldiers
Seventy years ago the Parachute Regiment was formed-the army's elite air assault force was tough, well-
trained, and designed to fight hazardous operations behind enemy lines with little or no backup. Dropping into the
middle of enemy territory, these "Sky Men"-British, American, German, and Russian soldiers-engage in grueling
combat in the most dangerous conflict zones around the world. Ex-Parachute Regiment officer Robert Kershaw
reveals the history of these airborne forces and their role during the most dramatic battles of the 20th century.
He finds out what drives a "Sky Man" to take these extraordinary risks, and what marks these sky warriors out
from ordinary soldiers. How do military paratroopers conquer the fear of jumping from aircraft at low level, by
night, and frequently under fire? Has the helicopter replaced the need for parachutists in the 21st Century? Has

Secret Agents and Double Agents from the Second World War to the Cold War
Ian Dear

Summary
The true history of the secret world of spooks, the people they spied on, and those they betrayed-includes
declassified MI5 info and new evidence from previously unpublished memoirs

The shadowy world of espionage has an enduring fascination for us all. Spy and Counterspy explores the tangled
web of agents and double-agents that spanned the globe before, during, and after World War II. It sheds new
light on those who worked for, and against, such covert organizations as Britain's MI5 and MI6; America's OSS
and its successor, the CIA; the Soviet NKVD; the Nazi security services; and the dreaded Japanese Tokko or
"thought police." They were men and women who lived extraordinary lives, always on the edge of exposure and
at risk of death. Many of them were so in love with the Great Game of spying that some betrayed their countries

On the Account in the 'Golden Age'


Piracy and the Americas, 1670?1726
Joseph Gibbs

Summary
Piracy along American coastlines and in the Caribbean in the late 1600s and early 1700s is often seen today
through a colorful set of modern media archetypes. The reality, however, was usually uglier and frequently
lethal. In this book, author Joseph Gibbs goes back to original memoirs, monographs, newspaper articles, and trial
records to present a stark picture of piracy in the era of Blackbeard, Bartholomew Roberts, and Ann Bonny and
Mary Read. The contents-many of which informed influential histories by Alexander Exquemelin and Charles
Johnson-are introduced, annotated, and carefully edited for modern readers. They offer a glimpse of piracy far
removed from, and often more engaging than, the romanticized version provided by later writers and filmmakers.
They describe the ordeal-filled marches of the Caribbean boucaniers, who were tough enough to eat leather

The Civilian and the Military (2nd Edition)


A History of the American Anti-Militarist Tradition
Arthur A. Ekirch

Summary
Presenting a new perspective on the influence of the military complex on U.S. society, this account follows the
rise and decline of the antimilitarist tradition-rooted in fear of dictatorship-that has been an important part of
the American heritage from colonial times until the 1950s and even today. In addition to providing a documented
historical survey of notable issues and landmarks that have affected the role of the civilian and the military until
the mid-1950s, the volume also offers ample background for an understanding of the complicated problem of
militarism in the last century, including principles and dynamics that are relevant in the 21st century. Bringing to

compelling examination will excite controversy among pacifists, militarists, and anyone interested in history, U.S.
military policy, and trends in current events.

War Without Victory


The Pentagon's Achilles Heel
Sara Flounders

Summary
Featuring a selection of essays written as recent major political developments were unfolding, this collection
contends that the Pentagon's vulnerability lies in the contradictions of the capitalist system that created the
monstrosity that is the U.S. military machine. Timely and honest writings discuss topics ranging from the
conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and the events in Libya and Syria to the ongoing role of WikiLeaks. The book
evaluates the Pentagon's inability to prevail in military struggles of the past century, explains why new and
terrifying U.S. weapons create more organized resistance than fear and submission, and warns that as the
United States loses its grip on aiding in the development of other regions, imperialism may risk all to recoup its
past position. The essays expand viewpoints by providing awareness of the United States' destructive capacity
and examining the government's weaknesses, while also suggesting ways to effectively oppose the war machine.

Blood Cries Afar


The Forgotten Invasion of England 1216
Sean McGlynn

Summary
The first book on the important but overlooked French invasion of England in 1216, which was almost a second
Norman Conquest

History came within a hair's breadth of repeating itself, 150 years after the Norman Conquest. In 1216, taking
advantage of the turmoil created in England by King John's inept rule and the war over Magna Carta, Prince Louis
of France and his army of mercenaries and French soldiers invaded England and allied with English rebels. The
prize was the crown of England. Within months Louis had seized control of one-third of the country, including
London. This is the first book to cover the bloody events of the invasion, one of the most dramatic but most
overlooked episodes of British history. The text vividly describes the campaigns, sieges, battles, and atrocities of

Bosworth 1485
Psychology of a Battle
Michael Jones

Summary
The future of England balanced on the outcome of one fight-but who were these great players whom history
remembers as heroes and villains?

In 1485, the Battle of Bosworth marked an epoch in the lives of two great houses: the house of York fell to the
ground when Richard III died on the field of battle, and the house of Tudor rose from the massacre to reign for
the next hundred years. Michael Jones, co-author of The King's Grave: The Search for Richard III, rewrites this
landmark event in English history. He shifts our perspective of its heroes and villains and puts Richard firmly back
into the context of his family and his times.

Flodden
A Scottish Tragedy
Peter Reese

Summary
Boosted by the success of naval campaigns in the Western Isles and support for the Danes, James IV, in a
misguided attempt to support France when that country was invaded by Henry VIII's troops, ordered the
Scottish army across the Border. At Flodden he faced English troops under the Earl of Surrey, and although
having a big advantage in terms of numbers, suffered a defeat so humiliating that it dented Scotland's
confidence for centuries. James IV lost his life at Flodden, and also took with him the flower of the Scottish
nobility, in addition to as many as 10,000 Scottish soldiers, both Highland and Lowland. It was nothing less than
catastrophe. In this re-assessment of one of Europe's last medieval battles, Peter Reese considers Flodden
against the patterns of both countries' traditional military rivalry and the personal animosity that existed
between James and Henry. He discusses the men who made up both armies, their contrasting weaponry,
Birlinn Ltd systems of command and military tactics, and considers the major part the battle played in the road to the

Blenheim 1704
James Falkner

Summary
The story of one of the turning points of the War of the Spanish Succession-and some would say in the history
of conflict in Europe

The overwhelming Allied victory at Blenheim ensured the safety of Vienna from the Franco-Bavarian army, thus
preventing the collapse of the Grand Alliance. Bavaria was knocked out of the war, and Louis's hopes for a quick
victory came to an end. France suffered more than 30,000 casualties including the commander-in-chief, Marshal
Tallard, who was taken captive to England. Before the 1704 campaign ended, the Allies had taken towns on the
Moselle in preparation for the following year's campaign into France itself. It was a striking victory for
Marlborough, which involved a lightning march of over 250 miles and superb deception-even of his own Dutch
allies. Blenheim must be one of the most well known battles-because of Blenheim Palace-but few know why. This

The Glorious First of June


Sam Willis

Summary
The first full length telling of the story of the first major naval battle of Britain's Great Wars with France during
the Revolutionary and Napoleonic period

France, early summer 1794. The French Revolution has been hijacked by the extreme Jacobins and is in the grip
of The Terror. While the guillotine relentlessly takes the heads of innocents, two vast French and British fleets
meet in the mid-Atlantic following a week of skirmishing. After fierce fighting, both sides claim victory. Here Sam
Willis not only tells, with thrilling immediacy and masterly clarity, the story of an epic and complex battle, he also
places it within the context of The Terror, the survival of the French Revolution, and the growth of British sea-
power.

Waterloo 1815
The British Army's Day of Destiny
Gregory Fremont-Barnes

Summary
A major reassessment of the battle from one of the world's leading authorities, to commemorate the 2015
bicentenary

The Battle of Waterloo is one of the most important moments in military history. This book seeks to not only tell
the story of this great battle, but also to challenge conventional thinking about the opposing forces and the
British victory. At noon on June 18, 1815, the might of the Imperial French Army under Napoleon faced the
Anglo-Allied Army, commanded by the Duke of Wellington and bolstered by the Prussian Army. It has recently
been argued that the British Army alone would never have been able to withstand Napoleon's troops and that
the glory for the victory should be laid at the feet of the Prussians, who swept into battle in the evening.

"Freedom, Faction, Fame and Blood"


British Soldiers of Conscience in Greece, Spain and Finland
Elizabeth Roberts

Summary
Under the rubric from Lord Byron, this book offers a unique comparison of three sets of British volunteers who
left their homes to fight in the Greek War of Independence, the Spanish Civil War, and the Russo-Finnish War.
From Lord Byron's journey to Greece, to the legendary International Brigades of the Spanish Civil War, and the
strange sojourn of a contingent of British misfits during a bitter Finnish winter, the book examines the passions,
ideals, and ideologies that motivated these individuals to take up arms. It looks at their experiences of warfare,
the rhetorical and discursive cultures they encountered in the volunteer contingents, and the problems they
faced when-and if-they returned home. The author traces the political consequences of the volunteers'
participation in these foreign wars in the context of the evolving concept of neutrality in foreign relations and
challenges to the state's control over the use of violence. Of the three wars, it was the Spanish Civil War that
Sussex Academic Press most caught the public imagination and generated the most controversy. The volunteers' defiance of th...

Bannockburn 1314
Chris Brown

Summary
In the most legendary battle in Scottish history, a mere 7,000 followers of Robert the Bruce defeated over
15,000 of Edward II's troops at Bannockburn. Fought over two days on June 23 and 24, 1314, the battle of
Bannockburn was a decisive victory for Robert the Bruce in the Scottish Wars of Independence against the
English. It was the greatest defeat the English would suffer throughout the Middle Ages, and a huge personal
humiliation for Edward II. Chris Brown's startling narrative recreates the battle and challenges our perceptions of
what happened and why. In this special, commemorative edition, he also looks back at the legacy of
Bannockburn and what it means for Scotland today.

Summary
One of the greatest battles to have taken place on Scottish soil

Bannockburn 1314 is the most celebrated battle between Scotland and England, in which a mere 7,000 followers
of Robert the Bruce defeated more than 15,000 of Edward II's troops. The Battle of Bannockburn, fought over
two days on June 23 and 24, 1314, by a small river crossing just south of Stirling, was a decisive victory for
Robert, and secured for Scotland de facto independence from England. It was the greatest defeat the English
would suffer throughout the Middle Ages, and a huge personal humiliation for Edward. This account recreates the
campaign from the perspectives of both the Scots and English.

Battle Story: Goose Green 1982


Gregory Fremont-Barnes

Summary
The detailed story of the first major engagement of the Falklands War.

The Battle for Goose Green has become an integral part of the Falklands story and yet it nearly didn't take place
at all. Goose Green was earmarked to be isolated, with the bulk of the British Army focused on Port Stanley,
however as the momentum of the invasion force ground to a halt, political pressure came into play. It was
important for the British to be seen to be achieving something in the campaign. So, despite much opposition,
Brigadier Julian Thompson was forced to give the order to attack the Goose Green area. The British 2 Para
Regiment were deployed against 12th Argentinean Regiment, which numbered approximately 1,200 men well-
equipped with artillery and small-arms; the British believed that the Argentinean force numbered at least half this
and set off with a strength of 690 men. They took two days' rations, weapons, and ammunition in the belief that
it would be a swift conquest. There followed a bitter and bloody fight, as the Argentine forces fiercely defended

Battle Story: Isandlwana 1879


Edmund Yorke

Summary
The first major encounter between the British Army and Zulu Kingdom-one of Britain's greatest military disasters
Putting the reader at the forefront of the action, this is the story of January 22, 1879, when a 20,000-strong
Zulu army attacked 1,700 British and colonial forces-spears and shields clashing with the latest military
technology. Despite being poorly equipped, the numerically superior Zulu force crushed the British troops, killing
1,300 men, while only losing 1,000 of their own warriors. It was a humiliating defeat for the British Army, who
had been poorly trained and had underestimated their enemy. The defeat ensured that the British had a renewed
respect for their opponents and changed their tactics from a straight, linear formation to an entrenched system
or close order formations. The defeat caused consternation throughout the British Empire, who had assumed that
the Zulu were no match for the British Army-thus the army was greatly reinforced and went on to victory at
Rorke's Drift.

Battle Story: Mafeking 1899-1900


Edmund Yorke

Summary
The most famous British action of the Second Boer War

The Siege of Mafeking remains one of the most famous actions of the Second Boer War, with the British Army
defeating a Boer force of more than 8,000 men with only 1,500 troops. The town of Mafeking was designated a
central location due to its rail connections and Robert Baden-Powell decided to trial his theory of defense rather
than attack here. He holed up his troops in Mafeking, fortifying the city for a siege that would last for 217 days.
800 men held Mafeking, supported by a cadet corps of 12 to 15-year-olds who later inspired the Scouting
Movement. The town withheld attack from the Boers against the odds and was finally relieved on May 17, 1900.
The siege and relief of Mafeking caused much public excitement in Victorian Britain and Robert Baden-Powell
became a war hero.

Battle Story: Maiwand 1880


Edmund Yorke

Summary
A legendary victory of Afghan forces over the British Army

The battle of Maiwand was one of the most serious defeats of the British Army during the Great Game and one of
the only times during the 19th century that an Asian force defeated a Western power. The battle commenced on
July 27, 1880, as Afghan forces moved towards the Maiwand Pass in Afghanistan in attempt to cut British
communications between Kabul and Kandahar. British spies spotted the enemy forces under the Afghan leader,
Ayub Khan. In a disaster reminiscent of Isandlwana the previous year, the British underestimated the Afghan
forces and ignored key intelligence, thus being forced to attack the Afghan forces at the village of Maiwand,
with nearly 3,000 British troops to 8,500-15,000 Afghan warriors. British forces far outstripped the Afghans in
firepower and were confident of a swift victory, yet Khan's command skills and tactical flexibility led him to
deploy his troops in such a way that their swords and spears were able to overcome the British rifles. Nearly

Battle Story: Rorke's Drift 1879


Edmund Yorke

Summary
Explores the men and action at this most legendary of battles in the Anglo-Zulu War

The small garrison based at Rorke's Drift in South Africa is forever immortalized as one of the British Army's most
glorious moments. The garrison was defended by 139 British soldiers with 300 African colonial troops under their
command when, on January 22, 1879, they were attacked by a Zulu force of nearly 4,000 warriors. Outnumbered
by nearly 20 to one, the British soldiers constructed a makeshift defense and fought throughout the night. Their
tenacity and bravery ensured that the British retained the garrison and won the battle. Their acts in the face of
this overwhelming onslaught saw 11 Victoria Crosses being awarded to the British garrison, the highest number
ever awarded for a single engagement. Rorke's Drift restored the British public's faith in the Army after the
disaster of Isandlwana, and the battle was famously portrayed in the film Zulu.

Battle Story: Hastings 1066


Jonathan Trigg

Summary
The battle in which the destruction of the shield wall changed Western Europe forever

In 1066 a foreign invader won the throne of England in a single battle and changed not only the history of the
British Isles but of Christendom, for ever. Harold Godwinson's army, exhausted from their victory against an
invading Norwegian Viking army at the Battle of Stamford Bridge in the north, and his navy, scattered by storms,
could not hold back William of Normandy. But would the invasion have succeeded if the two armies had met on
equal terms? Author and ex-Captain in the Royal Anglian Regiment Jonathan Trigg brings a soldier's eye to the
story to explain the precise circumstances of the conflict and the reasons for the outcome. The Battle of
Hastings is in fact a tactical lesson in the use of all arms: Harold's forces consisted entirely of infantry. William
had the best cavalry in Europe, perhaps the world, heavily armored and armed with lance and shield. He also had
The History Press crossbowmen, never before seen in England.

Battle Story: Kabul 1841-42


Edmund Yorke

Summary
The battle that forced the withdrawal of British forces from Afghanistan, ending their disastrous campaign

Kabul is a name that has had much resonance in current affairs over the last few years, however its place in
military history can be charted much further back to the first British incursions into Afghanistan during the 19th
century. The First Anglo-Afghan War saw British India attempting to obtain power over Central Asia by gaining
control of Afghanistan. The conflict was to last for more than three years and is often thought to have been one
of Britain's worst disasters in Asia prior to the capture of Singapore during World War II. The British had little
understanding or appreciation of the terrain or tribal warfare in Afghanistan and incurred heavy casualties,
despite being far superior in training and weaponry than the Afghan warriors they faced. In 1841 the British,
having held Kabul for several years in an attempt to stop the Afghans colluding with the Russians, relaxed their
grip on the garrison, allowing the Afghans to rebel, leading to the slaughter of more than16,000 Br...

Battle Story: Omdurman 1898


William Wright

Summary
Four Victoria Crosses and 23,000 enemy dead and wounded-8,000 regular British soldiers, of whom just
43 lost their lives

The battle took place at Kerreri, north of Omdurman in the Sudan. Kitchener commanded a force of 8,000 British
regulars and a mixed force of 17,000 Sudanese and Egyptian soldiers. He arrayed his force in an arc around the
village of Egeiga close to the bank of the Nile, where a gunboat flotilla waited in support, facing a wide, flat plain
with hills rising to the left and right. The British and Egyptian cavalry was placed on either flank. Al-Taashi's
followers, known as Ansar and sometimes referred to as Dervishes, numbered around 50,000, including some
3,000 cavalry. In a few hours and at a loss of less than 400 officers and men killed and wounded, the Anglo-
Egyptian army defeated the more than 50,000 brave tribesmen who charged their enemy, regardless of the hail
of maxim bullets, many of them armed only with spears, swords, and ancient chainmail armor. In concise detail,

Battle Story: Waterloo 1815


Gregory Fremont-Barnes

Summary
The details of a resounding victory for the British Army, which changed the course of European history

The Battle of Waterloo is one of the most important moments in military history, as the might of the French
Empire, under Napoleon's leadership, faced the Coalition army under Duke of Wellington and Gerhard von Blucher
for one last time. The battle saw the culmination of a long campaign to destroy Napoleon's forces and halt the
growth of the French Empire. Both sides fought bitterly and Wellington later remarked that "it was the nearest-
run thing you ever saw in your life." Both armies lost more than 20,000 men on the battlefield that day, but it
was the coalition that emerged victorious in the end. Wellington's army counter-attacked and threw the French
troops into disarray as they fled from the field. The coalition forces entered France and restored Louis XVIII to
the throne, and Napoleon was exiled to the island of Saint Helena, where he later died.

Brother Mendel’s Perfect Horse


Man and Beast in an Age of Human Warfare
Frank Westerman

Summary
Europe's twentieth-century history told through the incredible story of a horse: the Lipizzaner.
In Brother Mendel's Perfect Horse he explores the history of these unique creatures, an extraordinary troop of
pedigree horses first bred as personal mounts for the Emperor of Austria-Hungary. Following the bloodlines of the
studbook, he reconstructs the story of four generations of imperial steeds as they survive the fall of the
Habsburg Empire, two world wars and the insane breeding experiments conducted under Hitler, Stalin and
Ceausescu.

But what begins as a fairytale becomes a chronicle of the quest for racial purity. Carrying the reader across
Europe, from imperial stables and stud farms to the controversial gene labs of today, Westerman asks, if animal

Mad Mitch's Tribal Law


Aden and the End of the Empire
Aaron Edwards

Summary
Aden, June 20, 1967: two army Land Rovers burn ferociously in the Midday sun. The bodies of nine British
soldiers litter the road. Bright flames mixed with thick, black smoke bellows above Crater town, a tough Arab
neighbourhood built on top of a dormant volcano. Surrounded by high rugged peaks and perched on the south-
western edge of the Arabian peninsular, it is home to insurgents, terrorists and gangsters, who establish ‘no-go
areas’ against the British-backed Federation government. Crater had come to symbolise Arab nationalist defiance
in the face of the world’s most powerful empire. Hovering 2,000 ft. above the smouldering destruction, a tiny
Scout helicopter surveys the scene. Its passenger is the recently arrived Commanding Officer of the Argyll and
Sutherland Highlanders, Lieutenant-Colonel Colin Mitchell. Soon the world’’s media would christen him ‘Mad Mitch’,
in recognition of his extremely robust and controversial reoccupation of Crater two weeks later. Mad Mitch was

Man and Horse


Four Thousand Years of the Mounted Warrior
Andrew Sinclair

Summary
Until very recently, the horse has been the decisive factor in determining military success. Showing that the art
of warfare from horseback with its culture of mobility has always been at conflict with the urban domesticated
culture, this hugely amibitious and fascinating book argues that that tension has created much of the great art
and culture of humankind. Great exponents of the art of equestrian warfare discussed here include Alexander the
Great, Hannibal, King Arthur, Saladin, the Knights of the Templar, the Reivers of the Scottish Borders, the
Mongols, North American Indians, the Confederate forces during the American Civil War, and the Boers. The uses
of the horse by highwaymen and figures such as Ned Kelly are also examined.

Marching to the Drums


A History of Military Drums and Drummers

Summary
A full history of the crucial role played by drums in the history of warfare, including previously untold stories

Military drummers have played a crucial role in warfare throughout history, as soldiers marched to battle to the
sound of the drums and used the beat to regulate the loading and reloading of their weapons during the battle,
and drummers were used to raise morale during the fight. This is the first work to chart the rise of drums in
military use and how they came to be used on the battlefield as a means of signaling. This use was to last for
almost 4,000 years when modern warfare with communications rendered them obsolete. Even so, drummers

Military's Strangest Campaigns & Characters


Extraordinary But True Stories
Tom Quinn

Summary
A completely circular Russian warship, a pantsless colonel-this compendium examines some of the most

to maverick soldier "Popski" Peniakoff, who commanded a company of British soldiers in North Africa during World
War II. Known as "Popski's Private Army," this motley bunch were highly unorthodox but very effective in raiding
Axis supply columns and destroying Luftwaffe aircraft. Then there's the unusual Russian warship Novgorod, which
was completely circular, and the Victoria Cross winner who survived completely unscathed against all odds; not
to mention the old colonel who went into battle with his trousers down and the woman who fought as a man for
nearly 20 years without being discovered. Making for bizarre yet absorbing reading, this history highlights the
origins of strange regimental traditions, heroic and ridiculous soldiering, and the folly of commanding o...

Princesses on the Wards


Royal Women in Nursing through Wars and Revolutions
Coryne Hall

Summary
The first study of queens and princesses in wartime nursing, from Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth II

Royal ladies have never been afraid to roll up their sleeves, work in wards and field hospitals, and help in the
operating theater, despite their sheltered upbringing. Indeed, through wars and revolutions in Russia, Greece,
Spain, Romania, Belgium, and Britain, their experiences were no different than those of thousands of other
nurses. Beginning with two daughters of Queen Victoria, Princess Alice and Princess Helena, this book tells their
stories and the difficulties queens and princesses faced while carving a worthwhile role in an age when the place
of a well-born woman was considered to be in the home. From Empress Alexandra of Russia and Queen Marie of
Romania to Princess Marina Duchess of Kent and Princess Alice of Greece (mother of the Duke of Edinburgh), all

Reading Clausewitz
Beatrice Heuser

Summary
Clausewitz's On War, first published in 1832, remains the classic study of the nature and conditions of warfare.
Best remembered for his pronouncement that war is a continuation of politics by other means and for his
observations on total war, he gave a new philosophical foundation to the art of war. Complex and often
misunderstood, Clausewitz has fascinated and influenced generations of politicians and strategic thinkers.
Beatrice Heuser's comprehensive study is the first book on how to read Clausewitz and how others have read
him-from the military commanders in World War I through Lenin and Mao Zedung to strategists in the nuclear
age. The result is an accessible and illuminating introduction to the most influential study of the art of war.

Thirteen Victims of Military Injustice

Summary
Thirteen fascinating diverse case studies offer a unique and human take on military history and the figure of the
military scapegoat

Beginning with defining the scapegoat and examining the conditions needed to qualify, this book then shares a

Shanghai Fury
Australian Heroes of Revolutionary China
Peter Thompson

Summary
Shanghai is a city defined by war. The city and its armed struggles were central to the relationship between
China and Australia from the fall of the Manchus in 1912 to the Communist victory in 1949. Yet with the notable
exception of George "Chinese" Morrison, the Australian contribution has been largely neglected and no single
volume covers the experiences of the many remarkable Australians caught up in the drama. Set against a
backdrop of imperial splendor and abject squalor, this book examines one of the seminal periods of the 20th
Century in a compellingly readable narrative that mixes personal memoir with combat action to complete a
powerful trilogy on Australians at war.

Terror Base UK
Inside a Secret War
Neil Doyle

Summary
Terror Base UK is cyber-journalist Neil Doyle's chronicle of the epic struggle between al-Qaeda and the West. By
tracking websites used by al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations to plan, coordinate, and celebrate their
attacks, as well as to recruit new members, he has uncovered: how the London suicide bombings of 2005 could
have been prevented; how a secret jihad army has established itself in Britain, making the country al-Qaeda's
European headquarters; details of several previously undisclosed bomb plots, including one involving chemical
weapons; the first documented cyber-attack; and a fatwa issued by an al-Qaeda spiritual leader that pre-
approves of the deaths of millions in the West. A sobering, eye-opening account by a groundbreaking
investigative journalist.

The Beastly Battles of Old England


The Misguided Manoeuvres of the British at War
Nigel Cawthorne

Summary
An entertaining trawl through the darker side of English military history
Throughout history the English have been a warlike bunch. Often they fight among themselves-there have been
a good few civil wars-and when not slaughtering each other, they practiced on their neighbors-the Scots, the
Irish, the French. When that got too easy, they set off around the world to find other people to fight. This was
usually done with a hubris that invited some ludicrous pratfall. Here, Nigel Cawthorne takes readers on a darkly
humorous journey through some of his country's ill-advised military actions. From the war over a severed ear to a
general seeking out his rival's mistresses to even the score, it is a miscellany of insufferable arrogance, reckless
gallantry, stunning stupidity, massive misjudgements, and general beastliness.

The Byzantine Wars


John Haldon

Summary
This is a history of the wars between Byzantium and its numerous foes, among them the Goths, Arabs, Slavs,
Crusaders, and Ottoman Turks. By the middle of the 6th century the Byzantine emperor ruled a mighty empire
that straddled Europe, Asia, and North Africa. Within 100 years, this powerful empire had been cut in half. Two
centuries later the Byzantine empire was once again a power to be reckoned with that soon recovered its
position as the paramount East Mediterranean and Balkan power, an empire whose fabulous wealth attracted
Viking mercenaries and central Asian nomad warriors to its armies, whose very appearance on the field of battle
was sometimes enough to bring enemies to terms. This book provides essential support for those interested in
Byzantine history in general as well as a useful corrective to the more usual highly romanticized views of
Byzantine civilization.

The Illusion of Victory


The True Costs of War
Ian Bickerton

Summary
Claiming that most rewards of victory in modern warfare are exaggerated or false, this discussion demonstrates
that when the ostensible benefits of victory are examined a generation after a war, it becomes inescapably
evident that defeat rarely means conforming to the demands and expectations of the victor. Consequently, long-
term political and military stability is denied to both the victorious and defeated powers, and further outbreaks of
war are by no means deterred. From Waterloo to Afghanistan, this account argues that this sobering reality is
increasingly the case in contemporary war, and, as the rhetoric of victory becomes more hollow, all countries
must adopt creative new approaches to resolving disputes.

The Savage Storm


Britain on the Brink in the Age of Napoleon
David Andress

Summary
An extraordinarily gripping narrative of how Britain, seemingly on the ropes after losing control of America and
with growing internal dissent, built the military and naval might to defeat Napoleon-and in doing so transformed
its destiny
In this distinctive, sweeping history of the period, David Andress fuses two hitherto separate historical
perspectives-the military and the social. Britain's defeat of Napoleon is one of the great accomplishments in the
nation's history, yet it was by no means certain that Britain itself would survive the revolutionary fervor of the
age, let alone emerge victorious from such a vast conflict. From the late 1790s, the country was stricken by
naval mutinies, rebellion in Ireland, and riots born of hunger, poverty, and grinding injustice. As the new century
opened, with republican graffiti on the walls of the cities, and revolutionary secret societies reportedly
Little, Brown Book Group widespread, King George III only narrowly escaped assassination. Jacobin forces seemed to threaten a
9780349122342 dissolution of the social order. Above all, the threat of French invasion was ever-present. ...

The Wars of the Bruces


Scotland, England and Ireland 1306-1328
Colm McNamee

Summary
The Bruces of fourteenth-century Scotland were formidable and enthusiastic warriors. Former studies of this
period of history tend to concentrate on events in Scotland, but England's war with Robert Bruce profoundly
affected the whole of the British Isles. Scottish raiders struck deep into the heartlands of Yorkshire and
Lanarkshire; Edward Bruce was proclaimed King of Ireland and came close to subduing that country, and The Isle
of Man was captured and a Welsh sea-port raided. In the North Sea, the Scots allied with German and Flemish
pirates to cripple England's vital wool trade and disrupt her war effort.

The World's Greatest 20th Century Battlefields


Peter Snow

Summary
To understand the 20th-century battles examined in this book is to understand the conflicts that dominated the
world's headlines. Former war correspondent Peter Snow and his son, military historian Dan Snow, place each
battle in the context of the war in which it played a crucial part. Interviews with veterans provide the
perspective of those on the ground, from leaders to foot soldiers, at these pivotal points in history. Compelling
narratives bring to life the vast landscapes of modern warfare and the strategies and technologies employed,
from the earliest tanks, planes, and artillery of the First World War to the satellite surveillance and laser-guided
missiles of the Gulf War.

Warriors of the Queen


Fighting Generals of the Victorian Age
William Wright

Summary
Who were the men who commanded the British Army in the numerous small wars of the Victorian Empire? Today,
many are all but forgotten, save the likes of Cardigan, Kitchener, Baden-Powell, and Gordon of Khartoum. Yet
they were a disparate and fascinating assemblage, made up of men of true military genius, as well as egotists,
fools, and despots. William Wright surveys over 150 of these men, their careers, and personalities. He reveals
not only the lives of the great military names of the period, but also those who history has overlooked, from
James "Buster" Browne, who once fought a battle in his nightshirt, to Jack Bisset, who had fought in three South
African wars by his 23rd birthday. Based on original research and complemented by over 50 photographs,
Warriors of the Queen provides new insight into the men who built (and sometimes endangered) the British
Empire on the battlefield.
