Attila The Hun, Arch-Enemy of Rome tinyurl.com/y5mfzhv5 Rosie PenandSword Crofts Pen and Sword Books

READ THE FULL REVIEW

There are few individuals who have imprinted themselves as permanently on history as Attila the Hun, but although his name is widely remembered, remarkably few know anything about his achievements in detail and remarkably little has been written about him. The barbarian tribes had always been a thorn pricking the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire, but Attila presented a whole new level of threat as he scythed West through all who stood in his way. – Very Highly Recommended

Southern Thunder, The Royal Navy and the Scandinavian Trade in World War One

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The Baltic Trade was vital to the British Isles for hundreds of years, dating back to before the Medieval period. The First World War saw Britain and Germany competing for trade with Scandinavia, providing vital supplies to Britain and requiring the defeat of German trade to enforce a tight blockade of Germany. – Very Highly Recommended

Great Naval Battles of the Ancient Greek World

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This new book examines thirteen great naval battles to illustrate the largely unsung heroes of Ancient Greece. The history of Ancient Greece has received good coverage of land battles but much less coverage of the naval battles that often determined the outcome of fighting on land. – Very Highly Recommended

Great Escapes of the First World War

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This nicely written review of POW escapes during WWI nicely compliments the large number of “Great Escape” books being released for the 75th Anniversary of that POW escape. The WWI escapers received remarkably little coverage at the time and very little in the century since, making this a particularly welcome military history. – Highly Recommended

Cold War 1945-1991, North Korean Onslaught, UN Stand At The Pusan Perimeter August-September 1950

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This increasingly popular series provides a unique perspective on the Cold War, with this new addition to the series adding further depth. The invasion of South Korea by a dictatorship, supported by totalitarian regimes, naturally caught the democracies on the hop. This new book provides an account of what happened and how the US-led alliance fought back. – Highly Recommended

Deadlines On The Front Line, Travels With a Veteran War Correspondent

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author has more than 40 years experience in following wars in 30 combat zones so his guide is bound to be entertaining and informative. He has been described as “Bill Bryson meets Tom Clancy in Faulty Towers” but the reader can decide if that is a fair description in a funny and tragic guide to recent and current conflicts. – Highly Recommended
