As reviewed in The Daily Telegraph: The Bramall Papers

RRP: £25.00
The Bramall Papers – Reflections on War and Peace, by Field Marshall the Lord Bramall of Bushfield.

‘Bramall is one of a kind: a brave and talented soldier who became the finest military theorist of his generation. His sage words should be required reading for politicians of all hues.’ Saul David – The Daily Telegraph

Over the course of his 75 year career, Field Marshal Bramall – or Dwin as he is universally known – has been in the forefront of military thinking. Clearly destined to reach the pinnacle of his profession, he shone in a succession of prestigious appointments both in command and on the staff. He fought in Normandy, saw active service in Ireland and Borneo and masterminded the Falklands Campaign.

As this unique collection of personal papers – dating from the 1950s to the present day – testify, Bramall has never shied away from controversy or original thought, whether on low level leadership or higher military strategy. His views are far from predictable or trenchant, as demonstrated by his changing nuclear stance and his clearly argued opposition in the House of Lords to intervention in Iraq. The publication of this unique collection of letters, lectures, speeches and theses on a wide range of topics gives the reader the opportunity to delve into a rich mine of sound military thinking and common sense.

‘Book of the Month’: Escorting the Monarch

Our Price
£15.99
RRP: £19.99
Escorting the Monarch by Chris Jagger has been selected as Best of British magazine’s ‘Book of the Month’ for January 2018.

‘It is very unusual to find a police history that concentrates on traffic even though this is a very specialist sub-set of the role. If you are interested in police history, traffic and motorcyclists, this is a combination of a book for you not to miss. For the more general reader it opens doors you never knew were there and is therefore full of interest.’ (Surrey Constabulary History Journal)

The Metropolitan Police’s ‘Special Escort Group’ (SEG) have honed their skills for over six decades. Through a carefully constructed description of a changing security and political environment across the decades, and an insightful analysis of the ingenuity of those who have served with the SEG, Escorting the Monarch explains the events that made the group who they are today, written by the son of of a retired SEG officer who himself served in the British Government’s security and intelligence community.

Stalag Luft III – the ‘Great Escape’ PoW camp

Stalag Luft III – An Official History of the ‘Great Escape’ PoW Camp

As featured by the Daily Mail in their article; Inside the walls of the Great Escape PoW camp: Fascinating new details revealed along with the first-hand accounts of 26 prisoners who made it out of the tunnel at Stalag Luft III

Opened in March 1942 to house captured Allied airmen, particularly officers, Stammlager Luft III at Sagan was built to make escape particularly difficult, especially tunnelling. This did not stop the prisoners who dug through more than 100 yards of loose sand, enabling 76 men to escape. All but three of the men were recaptured, however, and 50 were executed by the Germans.

This Official History of the camp was prepared for the War Office but was never released to the general public. It explains the German administration and running of the camp, the food and conditions the prisoners endured, and the means by which morale was maintained under such trying circumstances. Inevitably considerable space is devoted to the escapes and their careful preparation as well as the anti-escape measures undertaken by the guards. There is also a chapter detailing the punishments meted out for attempting to escape, and lists the number of shooting incidents.

This account provides the reader with an accurate and unprecedented insight into life in a German PoW camp in the latter years of the Second World War.

Darkest Hour – further reading
A new film released in UK cinemas this month focuses on Great Britain’s ‘darkest hour’, during the early days of the Second World War. The fate of Western Europe hangs on the newly-appointed British Prime Minister, who must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler, or fight on against incredible odds. Through Winston Churchill’s refusal to surrender and determination to fight on, he became Britain’s last hope.

Gary Oldman stars as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, a critically-acclaimed biopic that features one of his finest performances. Darkest Hour is Oscar-nominated for Best Actor, Best Picture and Best Director. Find more information about Darkest Hour, and watch the trailer, via IMDB.
