GUNS OF THE REGIMENT

by Doug Knight

Since Confederation, the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery has used more than 130 types of guns and rockets. Each filled a role in the defence of Canada serving with the Regiment, being modified, modernized, or upgraded as necessary, and finally being transferred to the reserves. This book will be an invaluable resource to anyone with an interest in these weapons. Each gun has its own section, detailing its development and its career in the Regiment at home and overseas. Special sections deal with the manufacture of the guns, organization and operation of the Regiment, and the mechanization of the artillery in the 1930s. Every gun is illustrated by at least one photograph, many of which have never been previously published.

OVER THE BATTLEFIELD: OPERATION BLUECOAT

by Ian Daglish 

After weeks of bitter fighting there was a desperate need to break out of the Normandy bridgehead. In late July 1944 Lieutenant-General Sir Miles Dempsey’s Second Army moved two entire corps from the Caen sector to the countryside around Caumont. Here, British XXX Corps prepared to give battle, with VII Corps advancing in support between XXX Corps and the American first Army. While the XXX Corps attack stalled, VIII Corps surged ahead and a deep penetration was made. The author examines Monty’s refusal to seize Vire, the disputed Anglo-American border and the Operation’s impact on the German Mortain offensive.

DELPRADO/OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES (MEN & LEGENDS): 
                                          JAPANESE ARMY AIR FORCE ON THE ATTACK

by Henry Sakaida. Editor-in-Chief Juan Ramon Azaola

Little has been published in English on the Japanese Army Air Force (JAAF), let alone its most successful fighter pilots - no less than 150 of them achieved ace status during eight years of near-constant war. From the arid plains of the Mongolian border region to the lush jungles of New Guinea, the JAAF was more than a match for their many opponents. Indeed even when the mighty Allied war machine proved almost overwhelming from early 1944 onwards, the elite fighter pilots of the various sentais fought on with fanatical loyalty in defence of the Home Islands. The book includes colour artwork and profiles by Iain Wyllie, Grant Race and Mark Styling, and black and white 1/72 scale three-view drawings by Mark Styling.
