Panzer Rollen, The Logistics of a Panzer Division From Primary Sources

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This book is based on two intelligence reports that were produced from translations of captured German documents. The Panzer Division was constrained by logistics more often than supported. This primary source information provides a unique insight. – Highly Recommended

Secret Service in the Cold War, an SIS Officer From Philby to the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Balkans

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Authoritative accounts of the intelligence world through the Cold War are very rare, making this autobiographical account all the more important and valuable. The author, together with his son’s efforts to edit and present the story, has provided a senior insider’s account of a part of history shrouded in darkness. – Strongly Recommended

Spring Selection

I make no apologies for choosing the same subject matter, the Royal Navy, for all the titles in this Selection. As a former officer and before that, artificer, much of my value system and sense of duty has been shaped by my time in the Service and I have an abiding interest in both the Old and the New Navy. These three books deal with different aspects, from the memoirs of a vice admiral who joined when Britain really did rule the waves to an overview of the period of the war against revolutionary France 1793-1800 to the role of the Navy in the Scandinavian trade in the First World War. I commend them to all those interested in our naval history.
