A worthy addition to a brilliant series of battleground guides which is becoming a highly successful series of guides. The defeat of the Allies in the Battle of France and the amazing and courageous success of evacuating over 300,000 British and French troops from the exposed beaches of Dunkirk may explain why the battles that made the Dunkirk evacuation possible have long deserved better coverage. – Most Highly Recommended.
An important perspective of the German U-Boat service and WWII. The author was a U-Boat commander in WWI and Grand Admiral in WWII. – Recommended Reading.
Putin was a lad from the slums who joined the KGB and, although his personal reviews were often very poor, he made it to the top and then onto President. The author has set out the dangers that Putin has brought to the world in a must-read book. – Most Highly Recommended.
A beautifully produced book in A4 landscape with an image per page in full colour that celebrates the history of flight through the eyes of Guild of Aviation Artists in joint celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Guild. The collection of images is outstanding and demonstrates the creative advantages of painting over photography. This is a book that will appeal to a very wide audience. – Most Highly Recommended.
BASED ON AN EXTRAORDINARY TRUE STORY
Jenny Lecoat’s debut novel is a tense, emotional story of forbidden love, subterfuge and survival against the odds, set on Jersey. Published to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Channel Islands, this is an unmissable story.

After sending in the manuscript for Balkan Glory to my editor – and before diving into the research and planning for the next Kydd title I decided to catch up on some of the books in my ‘to read’ pile. I’ve chosen six of these (two of which are reprints that I revisited having come across them some time ago) that I particularly commend. They cover a wide range of topics: from amazing revelations about espionage to an engrossing history of the Tower of London to a fascinating reconstruction of the most powerful warship of her day. I hope there’s something here to whet your reading appetite.
