GALLIPOLI THEN AND NOW
by Steve Newman

Virtually unheard of prior to 1915, Gallipoli, the Turkish peninsula bordering the Dardanelles, conjures up visions which surpass the horrors of the trench warfare on the Western Front. Valued for its command of the seaway, Gallipoli was the scene of an horrific campaign between April 1915 and January 1916 in which more than 100,000 men lost their lives. For the Allies it was a battle fought in vain as the invasion forces were withdrawn for no gain. For the Turks it was a marvellous victory. With more than 450 photographs of major battle sites, cemeteries and other major features, the book provides a unique link between the past and the present.

BATTLES ON THE TIGRIS
by Ron Wilcox

In 1914 the British expedition to Mesopotamia set out to protect oil concession in Southern Persia but, after numerous misfortunes, ended up capturing Baghdad and Northern Towns in Iraq. Initially the mission was successful in seizing Basra but the British found themselves drawn North, becoming besieged by the Turks at Kut. After various failed relief attempts the British surrendered and the prisoners suffered appalling indignities and hardship, culminating in a death march to Turkey. Hopes that the Russians would come into the war were dashed by the Revolution and fighting against the Turks continued right up to the Armistice.

OFFICIAL HISTORY OF OPERATIONS ON THE N.W. FRONTIER OF INDIA 1920-35

A facsimile reprint of the 1936 edition incorporating Parts I, II and III. The sixteen years between the suppression of tribal rebels in Waziristan and the unrest which welled up there in 1936 were something of a golden age for the British administration in the region. The tribes were quiescent and a drive by the Government to inculcate civilized ideas' went ahead unopposed. Even as nationalist agitation organised by the Indian National Congress affected other parts of the sub-continent, the tribes of the North-West frontier remained quiet.

THE BLACK AND TANS
by Richard Bennett

The Black and Tans were the fiercest and most feared of the British forces in Ireland in the Twenties. Sent by Lloyd George's Coalition Cabinet in March of 1920 to suppress the IRA, they aquired a fearsome reputation and united Irish and British public opinion against the Government. Wearing a strange mixture of dark green tunics, khaki trousers, black belts and berets they had wide powers and could arrest anyone at will. This is an accurate and authoritative account of an ugly and harrowing period in Anglo-Irish history.

GERMANY AND THE SECOND WORLD WAR: VOLUME IX PART I

German Wartime Society 1939-1945: Politicization, Disintegration, and the Struggle for Survival. This Ninth volume in the magisterial series is written by a team of distinguished German historians: Ralf Blank, Jörg Echternkamp, Karola Fings, Jürgen Förster, Winfried Heinemann, Tobias Jersak, Armin Nolzen, and Christoph Rass. Translated by Derry Cook-Radmore. The war affected the lives and shaped the experience of millions of individuals in Germany. This volume examines how the minds and behaviour of individuals were moulded by the Party as the Reich took the road to Total War. The huge numbers of German workers conscripted into the Wehrmacht were replaced with forced foreign workers and slave labourers and concentration camp prisoners. The interaction in everyday life between German civilian society and these coerced groups is explored, as is that society's relationship to the Holocaust. The role of the Party, administration, police, and courts in providing for the vast numbers of those rendered homeless by air attack, in bolstering civilian morale with 'miracle revenge weapons' propaganda, and in maintaining order in a society in disintegration is reviewed in detail. The volume concludes with an account of the various forms of resistance to Hitler's regime, in society and the military, culminating in the failed attempt on his life in July 1944.

GERMANY AND THE SECOND WORLD WAR: VOLUME VIII

The Eastern Front 1943-1944: Edited by Karl-Heinz Frieser and written by a team of distinguished German historians, this eighth volume in the magisterial Germany and Second World War series deals with one of the most eventful phases of the Second World War: the battles on the eastern front in 1943 and 1944. In no other period of the war, apart from its concluding phase in 1945, did the Wehrmacht suffer such enormous losses. The land battles of those years, first and foremost the battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943, were among the biggest in world history. In the winter of 1943/44 the Red Army showed itself for the first time capable of conducting large-scale offensives against all German army groups simultaneously. The dramatic climax was reached in the summer of 1944, when the collapse of Army Group Centre led to what was then the heaviest defeat in German military history.

AT HITLER'S SIDE
by Nicolaus von Below

Nicolaus von Below was a 29-year-old pilot when Goering selected him for the position of Hitler’s Luftwaffe adjutant. He was with Hitler at every stage as World War II was planned and unfolded. The book tells of military decisions and policy-making at Führer Headquarters and provides fascinating insight into how Hitler planned the invasions of Poland and Russia. Von Below was present at the assassination attempt in July 1944 and was the last of Hitler’s close military entourage to emerge from the bunker alive as Berlin fell.
