The MMP Camera On series features rare and stunning images, as in this Vol 2 of a unique work. Much of the Eastern Front fighting took place in what became Poland and the railways played a vital role. This has produced a considerable volume of good quality photo stock. – Highly Recommended.
The MMP Camera On series features rare and stunning images, as in this new photo study of the MS.406. The book features over 150 previously unseen images, many from private sources in Germany. – Highly Recommended.
The MMP Yellow series has provided excellent aviation history books with well-researched and detailed text, supported by a great many stunning full colour images and line drawings. This book provides the best available study of the highly successful Mi-8 Hip and its 17 and 171 export versions. – Very Highly Recommended.
I’m a bit of a gruff creature when it comes to the commercialisation of Christmas – but there’s one thing that I fervently believe: a book is a present that, if well chosen for the recipient, will give hours of pleasure and be a lasting reminder in itself of someone putting thought, not just money, into a Yuletide gift. So do consider adding one or more from this selection to your gift-buying list. Four have a maritime theme; there’s also a Georgian miscellany – and a look at the real ‘Dad’s Army’. Hopefully, there’s something for everyone in this somewhat eclectic selection.
THE LAST VESTIGES OF THE D-DAY LIFELINE, A STUNNING VICTORIAN LISTED PIER AND A 1600 YEAR-OLD ABANDONED ROMAN FORT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE JORDANIAN DESERT…
…are just a few of the phenomenal images from the 2019

Another welcome addition to a very popular series. The story of Canterbury and life in Kent during WWI is told enthusiastically by an author of several books in this fine series. – Highly Recommended.
Historians have neglected the story of Carthage and its position as a Mediterranean Super Power, concentrating attention on the ‘Punic Wars’. Although the story of the ‘Punic Wars’ was important to the Romans, notably because they eventually won when Carthage failed to support its outstanding general Hannibal, it is just one small part of the rise and dominance of Carthage. – Most Highly Recommended.
The unique story of a radio broadcasting pioneer and war correspondent, told with affection by his son. This very original story has to be read, and widely, because it covers military history, broadcasting history, human interest, courage and service – Most Highly Recommended.
