Author signing event

Author David Maidment will be signing copies of his new book entitled Great Western Eight Coupled Heavy Freight Locomotives this Saturday, 29 August, at Didcot Railway Centre as part of the August Bank Holiday Steam Days event. More information about the event is available via the Didcot Railway Centre website.

The first of a series of Locomotive Profiles to be published by Pen & Sword Transport, the book describes the conception, design, building and operation of the fleet of powerful locomotives built in the first half of the twentieth century to meet the demands of the growing South Wales coal and steel industries and the West Midlands area served by the Great Western Railway.

‘It’s the astonishing variety and quality of the photographs that really makes an impression. The selection from all periods is superb, with many rarities in colour too. This is a thorough study of the GWR’s heavy freight engines which concludes with a technical section of diagrams and weights for each class.&rsqou;

Marcus Agrippa
Our Price: £25.00
Marcus Agrippa

The Battle of Actium

On 2 September 31 BC, the naval Battle of Actium – the decisive battle in the last of the civil wars of the Roman Republic – was fought off the western coast of Greece. Victory over Mark Antony meant that Octavian (known as the Emperor Augustus after 27 BC) became the undisputed master of the Roman world.

As Emperor Augustus’ deputy, Marcus Agrippa personified the term ‘right-hand man’. He established a reputation as a bold admiral, defeating Sextus Pompeius at Mylae and Naulochus (36 BC), culminating in the epoch-making Battle of Actium, which eliminated Marcus Antonius and Queen Cleopatra as rivals.

This biography of Marcus Agrippa, by Lindsay Powell – author of Germanicus and Eager for Glory, presents a penetrating new assessment of the life and achievements of the multifaceted man who put service to friend and country before himself.
