Great War Tank, Mark IV, Owners’Workshop Manual

B1826

This addition to the Haynes Owners’ Workshop Manual series follows the well-tested and popular format of concise text and lavish illustration, with some outstanding technical drawings and sketches, blended with an excellent selection of photographs, some from history and others shot in full colour of display and working examples of the subject to illustrate restoration and maintenance. First British tank marks the start of a century where the tank has been king of the battlefield and is still a potent element in warfare and in controlling civil disturbance.

Command Decisions, Lansdorff and the Battle of the River Plate

B1825

The author has provided a fascinating insight into the command decisions made by Landsdorff and the fatal result for him and for his command. The author has benefited from the broad spread of topics on which he has previously written. This includes some insightful titles covering from the Medieval period to modern times. These books have been released by a number of publishers. Many naval historians not only concentrate on naval warfare, but on one brief period of naval history. The author’s breadth of experience has combined with thorough research and been supported by a selection of well-chosen images in a black and white plate section. The story starts with WWI commerce raiding to set out the perspective that influenced decisions on both sides. The Graf Spee is described and both shortcomings and advantages are identified. The Montevideo period is covered, and there is a description of the status of the vessel from the German damage review. This is a moving story of success and failure, of good decisions and poor decisions. A very valuable addition to our pool of knowledge of an important naval action.
