Images of War, The Royal Army Medical Corps in the Great War, Rare Photographs From Wartime Archives

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Yet another excellent addition to a very popular series that presents outstanding images of war. Unfairly dubbed ‘Rob All My Comrades’ by soldiers in the trenches, the RAMC introduced a very professional field medical service that saved huge numbers of lives from battle injuries and epidemics during WWI – Very Highly Recommended.

Combat Over the Trenches, Oswald Watt, Aviation Pioneer

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Oswald Watts was a true pioneer of aviation and attracted much coverage during his life and after. Not all of this coverage was accurate and a number of myths and misconceptions have appeared. The author has done a very good job of objectively recounting the life and career of Oswald Watts and his text is supported by many well-chosen images through the body of the book – Most Highly Recommended.

BookPick: Winter Selection

BookPick: Winter Selection

by BigJules

As this new year begins here’s a trio of books that caught my eye. They’re all very much sea-focused so whether you’re a student of the role of the British Navy 1793-1815, drawn to great epic tales of survival or seeking to learn more about navigation at sea I think there’s something that will appeal. And as a bonus I have a copy of ‘The Endurance’ to give away. Just email julian@julianstockwin.com with your postal details and ‘Giveaway’ in the subject line. Deadline for entry: January 23.
