Inspired by family sagas, the author follows two young warriors forged in battle. The family saga was handed down through the generations as a private record and, in recent years, archaeology has been proving new insights that support the family saga version of history. – Very Highly Recommended.
An absorbing account of special forces operations by Airborne Rangers of the Long Range Patrol in the Vietnam Delta. The use of troops behind enemy lines is not new, gong back to ancient times, but the Vietnam War saw some new twists and turns as the US attempted to wage war against a low tech enemy, using high tech equipment. – Highly Recommended.
This is the largely untold story of British tank development through the Cold War. The author provides a comprehensive account of the development program and the designs that never reached the regiments, showing many original and advanced concepts. – Highly Recommended.
A sumptuous production of a book to underline the extraordinary vessel that is its subject. The publisher is renowned for releasing very high quality books on naval history and this is an excellent example with stunning and lavish illustration. – Most Highly Recommended.
The experiences of German women in wartime Germany have not been covered well in comparison with the lives of British women through the war years. The author provides views of women and their changing roles as the war progressed. – Highly Recommended.

Because tomorrow is invented today: the Société du Grand Paris is intent on involving in the construction sites artists and users, inhabitants and designers, next to the architects and workers. From 2017 to 2019, the collective Ne Rougissez Pas ! was invited to work next to the future train stations of Les Ardoines and Vitry-Centre as part of the “Shared Projects”. This week, we take a look back on their actions with the passers-by and the inhabitants to get a better grasp of the challenges of the construction sites that are in every way out of the ordinary.
