Book Review – Retreat of I Corps 1914, Battleground Early Battles 1914

B2101

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This addition to the best selling Battleground Series from Pen & Sword follows the well- established format of a pocketable book that is lavishly illustrated and seems somehow to pack in more information than there is page space. Intended to assist those making the trip to the battlefields, the book also provides descriptive review for the reader at home and provides a wealth of detail that is very helpful to enthusiasts making an extensive study of the conduct of war on the Western Front. Impossible to praise the book too highly!!

As with the other books in this exemplary series, the illustrations are first class and in monochrome. The photographs include both archive images from the time and modern images of cemeteries and, buildings and terrain. There are also some very informative maps and battle plans. The appendices provide Daily March statistics and Order of Battle for the German Army.

Dear Chris Bryant MP,

You classist gimp. I happened to go to a boarding school. No one helped me at boarding school to get into the music business. I bought my first guitar with money I saved from holiday jobs (sandwich packing!). I was taught the only four chords I know by a friend. No one at school had ANY knowledge or contacts in the music business, and I was expected to become a soldier or a lawyer or perhaps a stockbroker. So alien was it, that people laughed at the idea of me going into the music business, and certainly no one was of any use.

The Remarkable Story of Wing Commander Artie Ashworth DSO, DFC

Artie Ashworth’s experiences. The strain of flying over the most heavily
defended cities in the world, night after night for years, will be obvious to any
reader. Artie Ashworth’s story is one of extraordinary bravery and sacrifice set

A Captivating Insight into the History
and Lives of Professional Jockeys

John Carter

Published 12 February, 2015
Hardback £20.00/ eBook £17.99

Professional jockeys are a remarkable group. They are fiercely competitive on the racecourse but enjoy a tribal kinship in the weighing room. The minimum requirements for long-term success are courage, skill, athleticism and an intuitive understanding of how to ‘get a tune’ out of a horse. Warriors on Horseback gives a riveting insight into their lives.
