STUG III & IV, German Army, Waffen-SS and Luftwaffe, Western Front, 1944-1945

READ THE FULL REVIEW

A welcome addition to a very popular series aimed at model makers and military vehicle enthusiasts. Circumstances forced the Germans to find creative ways of keeping obsolescent armoured vehicles current and the STUG III & IV are classics of this – Highly Recommended.

Animals in the Great War

READ THE FULL REVIEW

A third book from a husband and wife team looking at another subject of military history meriting much more coverage. The use of animals in war did not end in 1918 but that was the last major war to depend heavily on animals to provide motive power – Very Highly Recommended.

Secret War, The Story of SOE, Britain’s Wartime Sabotage Organisation

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author has been described as the official historian to the British intelligence services and this book about the SOE provides a wealth of facts from a very shadowy organization. The evacuation from the beaches of Dunkirk and Churchill replacing Chamberlain saw a new aggressive posture against the Germans and efforts to take the war to them in Occupied Europe and then the Balkans – Very Highly Recommended.

Normandy’s Nightmare War, The French Experience of Nazi Occupation and Allied Bombing 1940-45

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Normandy had long been a pleasant productive green land, until 1940 when the German occupiers arrived. The sad fate was for the area to be terrorised by the Germans and bombed by the Allies before they arrived in force and fought through the towns of Normandy to liberate them – Very Highly Recommended.

Arnhem 1944, The Human Tragedy of the Bridge Too Far

Much has been written about the attempt to seize and hold the bridge at Arnhem, but this book looks specifically at the human cost.
