THE STORY OF THE 79th ARMOURED DIVISION
                                                                        OCTOBER 1942 - JUNE 1945

By Officers of the Division

This is the story of the British Army's famed 79th Armoured Division, a specialised unit created in readiness for the D-Day invasion of Normandy in 1944. The Division used armoured vehicles modified for special tasks named 'Hobart's Funnies' after the Division's commander, Maj-Gen. Sir Percy Hobart. These included amphibious tanks that floated, could clear mines, destroy defences, carry and lay emergency bridges and roadways and other tasks. This official history follows the Division from its formation through its finest hour on D-Day to final victory in Europe. This is the original Regimental publication printed in Hamburg in 1945 and it is profusely illustrated with photos and coloured maps.

THE NAZI ELITE

Edited by Ronald Smelser & Rainer Zitelmann


As neo-fascist rumblings are being felt again throughout Europe, this book re-examines the development of the Third Reich and the philosophies of its leaders. It presents twenty-two biographical sketches of some of the most notorious fascist leaders of the twentieth century: Joseph Goebbels, propagandist extraordinaire; Heinrich Himmler, the director of the infamous SS; Joachim von Ribbentrop, Nazi foreign minister; Rudolf Hess, considered by many to be deputy Fuehrer; Hermann Goering, Hitler's right- hand man; Martin Bormann; Alfred Rosenberg; Otto Ohlendorf; Ernst Julius Rohm; and many others of the inner circle, including Adolf Hitler himself.

Very good in slightly torn/repaired d/w - 260pp

OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES 95:
                                                      POLIKARPOV I-15, I-16 AND I-153 ACES

by Mikhail Maslov
The I-15, I-16 and I-153 fighters were the world’s first mass-produced fighters. Some 17,000 had been manufactured by the time production ceased in 1941. They served with the Republicans in the Spain, the Chinese against Japan in 1937−38, and the Soviets against both Japan in the Nomonhan Incident and Finland during the Winter War. By 1941, more than 20 Soviet pilots had made ace in Polikarpovs, and many more attained that status during the first months of the German invasion. Though thoroughly outclassed, the Polikarpov was the backbone of the Soviet air force early in WWII.
