A NATION IN ARMS
by Ian Beckett

A series of essays by seven historians on the British Army in WWI. Prior to the war the British Army consisted of some 250,000 men. This small, regular force had to rapidly absorb a citizens' army of over five million men, firstly of volunteers and then of conscripts. These studies examine the impact of the war on the army. Case studies examine particular units such as the Black Watch and the 113th Welsh Brigade. With a foreword by Sir John Keegan.

AFRICAN KAISER
by Robert Gaudi

General Paul Von Lettow-Vorbeck and the Great War in Africa, 1914-1918.As World War I ravaged the European continent, a completely different theater of war was being contested in Africa. And from this very different kind of war, there emerged a very different kind of military leader. With the now-legendary Schutztruppe (Defensive Force), von Lettow-Vorbeck and a small cadre of hardened German officers fought alongside their fanatically devoted native African allies as equals, creating the first truly integrated army of the modern age. Von Lettow-Vorbeck was the last undefeated German field commander of the war.

THE BALKAN WARS 1912-1913: PRELUDE TO THE FIRST WORLD WAR
by Richard C. Hall

The Balkan Wars of 1912 - 1913, during which the Ottoman Empire fought a coalition of Bulgaria, Greece, Montenegro and Serbia, opened an era of conflict in Europe which lasted until 1918, and which established problems which still tormented Europe at the end of the 20th century. Based on archival as well as diplomatic and military sources, this book provides a comprehensive perspective on the diplomatic and military aspects of the Balkan Wars. It demonstrates that The Wars of 1912-1913 were actually the first phase of the First World War.

STARVATION BLOCKADES
by Nigel Hawkins

During WWI Britain and Germany tried to starve each other into submission by naval blockades. The sinking of the Lusitania with the heavy loss of US lives nearly brought America into the war but Germany then relaxed its U-boat campaign. When this was resumed after the Battle of Jutland America joined the war, however the U-boats nearly bought Britain to her knees. Ultimately they were held at bay as American men and munitions poured across the Atlantic. Meanwhile the Allied blockade ofthe Central Powers caused terrible suffering for the civilian population

ZEPPELINS OVER THE MIDLANDS
by Mick Powis

On 31st January 1916 nine Zeppelins of the Imperial German Navy bombed the Midlands, opening a strategic bombing campaign designed to cripple British war production. It ended in total failure. The main target was Liverpool but none of the Zeppelins reached it. On foggy Monday night several major Midlands towns were bombed and 70 people killed. A lot is known about the military aspects of the raids but much less is known about what happened on the ground. Through intensive research the author has been able to identify many of the victims and give the full story of these events for the first time.
