Women at War in the Classical World

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Many readers may only see women at war as those who played a critical role in two World Wars. This view may be coloured by the Christian and Norman attitude to women as second class citizens but, even then, women were at least victims of war and a very small number were more actively involved as monarchs and, occasionally, as fighters. In the ancient world, women were more closely involved, but not on the scale of those who served during two world wars. – Highly Recommended.

Bookpick: Spring Selection

Bookpick: Spring Selection

by BigJules

This selection covers a broad range of topics including what we can learn from ship models, the life of a Yorkshire bargeman and a scholarly compilation of the importance of the sea in history And there’s also a delightful book about London’s weird and wonderful places, many of which would have been familiar to my hero Thomas Kydd and his fellow Georgians. Whether it’s an addition to your library or just a good holiday read, I hope there’s something for everyone in this eclectic selection.

The Desert Air Force in World War II, Air-power in the Western Desert 1940-1942

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author has produced a rare detailed account of the Desert Air Force in WWII. Historians have placed their main focus on the land battles and the commanders, particularly on Montgomery and Rommel, but the air battles were vital to victory – Highly Recommended.
