ARNHEM 1944: AN EPIC BATTLE REVISITED -
                                                        VOL. 1. TANKS AND PARATROOPERS

by Christer Bergstrom

This is the ultimate book on "Operation Market Garden", by internationally highly acclaimed military historian Christer Bergstrom. In depth research by the author has resulted in many myths and misconceptions being convincingly dispelled, backed up by detailed source notes. In fact, these two volumes form a completely new image of the battle in the Netherlands in the autumn of 1944. Bergstrom has made a painstaking research work for several years, interviewing veterans and others who participated or witnessed the battle. He has gone through all relevant documents in all relevant archives in the UK, the USA, Germany and the Netherlands, and that material forms the basis of this volume.

ARNHEM 1944: AN EPIC BATTLE REVISITED - 
                        VOL. 2. THE LOST VICTORY, SEPTEMBER - OCTOBER 1944

by Christer Bergstrom    



All previous published accounts of Operation "Market Garden" end the main story with the evacuation of the British airborne troops from Oosterbeek − which obscures the fact that Operation Market Garden at that time was still to be regarded as essentially a great success. It was only due to the following development of events (including the battle at Overloon in October 1944) that meant that the strategic success of Operation Market Garden could not be utilized to end the war before the turn of the year 1944. This is a story that has never been told before, and which is described and analysed in detail in the concluding Volume 2 of Christer Bergstrom’s "Arnhem 1944".

OSPREY ELITE 228: ARMIES OF RUSSIA'S WAR IN UKRAINE

by Mark Galeotti. Illustrated by Adam Hook

In February 2014, street protests in Kiev and other Ukrainian cities led to the ousting of the Russian-backed President Yanukovych. The so-called Euromaidan Revolution saw many changes to Ukraine's constitution, but the violent reaction in the east and south of the country led to armed counter-revolution, unofficially backed by Russia. This conflict is an essential example of Russia's new policy of 'hybrid warfare', which blends propaganda, misinformation, and the deployment of ‘deniable’ Special Forces and regular troops alongside proxies and mercenaries. Using a mass of official and unofficial sources, this book is an intriguing primer on the forces involved in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, supported by specially commissioned artwork.

OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES 83: MALTA SPITFIRE ACES

by Steve Nichols



The siege of Malta during World War II is one of the great epics of aerial warfare. Described in 1942 as both a 'fighter pilot's paradise' and 'the most bombed place on earth', Malta suffered 154 consecutive days and nights of bombing, 100 nights more that London suffered during the Blitz. The destruction of Axis convoys by Malta-based aircraft proved to be one of the decisive factors in the defeat of Rommel's forces in North Africa. This vital position would have been lost if it had not been for the successful defence of the island by a handful of greatly outnumbered Royal Air Force fighter squadrons. This book details the heroic story of the Spitfire Aces based on Malta.
