The Battle of the River Plate was an important propaganda coup for Great Britain and the Commonwealth. As such, there was inevitably some development of myth. The author has produced a very readable review of the action that reassesses the event. Highly recommended.
The Washington Treaty attempted much but delivered poorly. However, it introduced some very creative ways of designing and building warships to maximise permitted tonnage. The author has produced a comprehensive review of the Washington Treaty's impact on naval fleet development between the two World Wars. Most highly recommended.
With the ending of the Cold War, an increasing number of accounts of work at Bletchley Park and its out-stations has been published. The author has produced a graphic human presentation of life at Bletchley Park and is one of the last surviving codebreakers of Hut 6. Most highly recommended.
This is a fine addition to the outstanding collection of classic works published, under the frontline imprint, on the Napoleonic Wars. This fascinating book reproduces the memoirs of a mid rank officer during the Napoleonic Wars. There is no photo-plate section but there are some charming pen sketches. A very worthwhile read of original source material.
World War Two introduced large numbers of special forces, some traditional raids from the sea, and large scale raids by air. This fascinating book covers a selection of raids to illustrate the new scope for attacks on and behind enemy lines, with the blurring of military operations, intelligence and spying, a great read with some truly inspiring stories.
