THE KGB'S POISON FACTORY
by Boris Volodarsky

In November 2006 the world was shaken by the assassination in London of Alexander Litvinenko, a former Colonel in the FSB, the Russian security service. The murder was the most notorious crime committed by the Russian intelligence on foreign soil in three decades. The author is a former Russian military intelligence officer. His narrative reveals that since 1917, beginning with Lenin and his Cheka, the Russian security services have regularly carried out bespoke poisoning operations all over the world to eliminate the enemies of the Kremlin.

FORTRESS KENT
by Roy Ingleton

Since the dawn of civilisation, Britain has been menaced by foreign powers and invasive hordes. Situated on the extreme southeastern corner of England, the county of Kent is the nearest point to continental Europe, and has so been the targeted landing point for most of these incursions. From the time of the Angles, Jutes and Saxons to the Second World War, the Men of Kent and Kentish Men have had to set up and maintain defensive structures, from Norman castles to 1940 pill boxes, from the Royal Military Canal to the anti-tank ditches carved out of the hills around the coast. This book is the story of these fortifications.

FORTRESS THIRD REICH
by J. E. & H. W. Kaufmann and Illustrator Robert M. Jurga

The Atlantic Wall is perhaps the most famous of Germany’s World War II fortifications in Europe, but Hitler built many others, from elaborate coastal defences along the English Channel to the nearly impervious lines protecting the German homeland - the massive West Wall and the hurriedly built East Wall. Fortress Third Reich is the first comprehensive treatment of Germany’s World War II fortifications and other defensive systems, including the Reich’s highly feared air defences.

THE FORTS & FORTIFICATIONS OF EUROPE 1815-1945: THE CENTRAL STATES
by J .E. & H. W. Kaufmann

After the Napoleonic Wars the borders of Central Europe were redrawn and relative peace endured across the region, but the volatile politics of the late nineteenth century gave rise to a new era of fortress building. The authors of this extensively illustrated study describe how defensive lines and structures on a massive scale were constructed along national frontiers to deter aggression. The Germans, Austro-Hungarians and Czechs all embarked on ambitious building programmes. Artillery positions, barbed-wire networks, casemates, concrete bunkers, trench lines, observation posts all sprang up in a vain attempt to keep the peace and to delay the invader.
