Gallipoli Sniper, The Remarkable Life of Billy Sing

B2241

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Gallipoli was a campaign that has been condemned as a useless waste of lives and resources in a war that is generally regarded as a costly battle of attrition. For any one action at Gallipoli to be seen as a significant disaster, it had to be unusually costly and pointless. The author tells the story of Billy Sing in the third of his Gallipoli books. This compliments the author’s other Gallipoli books. Highly Recommended.

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Gallipoli was a campaign that has been condemned as a useless waste of lives and resources in a war that is generally regarded as a costly battle of attrition. For any one action at Gallipoli to be seen as a significant disaster, it had to be unusually costly and pointless. The author ably sets out the action of the Light Horse at Nek and provides a balanced account with a good photo plate section in support. Recommended.

Liverpool Pals, 17th 18th 19th 20th The (Service) Battalions The King’s Liverpool Regiment

B2238

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This is a nicely executed book that brings to life the Liverpool PALS. The text is crisp and the images are carried through the body of the book to produce an emotive picture of one of the joys and sorrows of WWI. All enthusiasts of the Great War will want to buy a copy, and it should sell very well in Liverpool, but it is a book that reaches out from the mud of Flanders with an engrossing human story. Recommended.

Kings of the Air, French Aces and Airmen of the Great War

B2237

READ THE FULL REVIEW

French fighter pilots of WWI are not well-known, even in French language publications, relative to British and German pilots. In English language publications they are notably missing, There is no obvious reason for this. They fought with the same bravery, were at least as much innovators in a new form of warfare, and they flew French designed and constructed machines that were equal to British and German machines. The Rhone rotary engine was widely used by aircraft manufacturers outside France who were attempting to produce nimble and reliable war-winning combat aircraft. The author has done a fine job of addressing this strange deficiency with a book that reviews the contribution of French Aces during WWI, This is a vivid account of the leading French Aces and is a very valuable addition to the information on the first aerial war in history. Excellent.

BookPick: A History of the Royal Navy: Empire and Imperialism

by BigJules

This book is part of the eminently readable ongoing History of the Royal Navy Series published by I.B.Tauris, in association with the National Museum for the Royal Navy. The series, when complete, will consist of three chronologically themed books covering the sailing navy from the 1660s until 1815; the navy in the nineteenth century from the end of the Napoleonic Wars; and the Navy since 1900. These core volumes are complemented by titles on particular wars or specific aspects of the Service. All the books are standalone titles and taken together will provide a very comprehensive and accessible history of the Royal Navy from its beginnings to the present day. Six titles have been published to date.
