Correcting the neglect of this very important organization, the author provides an inspiring account of the Royal Naval Commandos through an outstanding collection of anecdotes. The text is moving, inspiring, vivid, and the illustration in maps and images impressive – Highly Recommended.
Captain Wynne of the Historical Section of the Cabinet Office produced this unique account of British threat responses to potential German conflict. The response was in four sections to different threats and used some documents that were later destroyed or filed under security restrictions – Strongly Recommended.
Since the publication of Persephone in the UK on May 18 I’ve been giving talks and doing signings at various locales. It’s always a special pleasure to meet readers, old and new. And who could have predicted that on one book signing I’d meet a delightful young lady called Persephone! I’ve been chuffed with the response to this book.
This two disc video tells the story of the real Memphis Belle, named for Margaret Polk, and its even more exciting than Hollywood’s fact-inspired version. The First Film Unit of the US Army Air Force made a 45 minute documentary that was first released in 1944 to mark the safe completion of a full tour by the Memphis Belle and her crew. This marks the start of this video and is followed by rare out-takes that include a visit by HM King George VI and HM Queen Elizabeth, a slide show and 90 page downloadable study document. Outstanding & exciting.

The minor warships in any navy play a very important part in naval warfare but often receive very little attention from historians. This new book provides a detailed view of the Kreigsmarine Security Forces in WWII with many previously unpublished images. It is an important addition to the pool of knowledge and the first substantial review of German naval security forces – Very Highly Recommended.
