OSPREY CAMPAIGN 264: FALL GELB (1).
                                           PANZER BREAKTHROUGH IN THE WEST

by Douglas C. Dildy. Illustrated by Peter Dennis

Never in the history of warfare has the clash between such great and apparently equal forces been decided so swiftly and conclusively as the German conquest of France and the Low Countries in May and June of 1940. Avoiding the extensive fortifications of France's Maginot Line, Hitler's Wehrmacht planned to advance its 136 divisions through Belgium and northern France in order to destroy the Allied forces there and gain territory from which to prosecute combat operations against France and England. Beginning on 10 May 1940, this book follows the fortunes of Heeresgruppe A as its three Panzer Korps moved stealthily through the dark, hilly, and thickly forested Ardennes in Belgium, before forcing a passage across the river Meuse and racing through France to the Channel.

New in card cover -  A4  format, 96pp,

THE SPANISH ULCER: A HISTORY OF THE PENINSULAR WAR

    by David Gates

Following his spectacular victories over Austria, Prussia and Russia, Napoleon dominated most of Europe by July 1807. The only significant gap in his empire was the Iberian Peninsula, and he therefore attempted to force Spain and Portugal into line. This led to the outbreak of war in May 1808. Napoleon considered the war to be insignificant, relying on his marshals to subdue the Peninsular, whilst simultaneously launching his disastrous Russian campaign of 1812. Yet the war was to end with total defeat for the French and the crossing of the Pyrenees into mainland France by Wellington's army in late 1813.

DISASTER AT STALINGRAD: AN ALTERNATE HISTORY

by Peter Tsouras 

It is Spring 1942 and Hitler is about to launch his summer campaign to break the back of the Soviet Union. His objective is to destroy the Red Army and seize the oil fields of the Caucasus. His elite 6th Army and 4th Panzer Army become bogged down amid the ruins of Stalingrad. The Germans are running out of resources as Stalin carefully husbands his reserves for the decisive counterstroke. What happens next is well known: the German Army never recovered from its defeat at Stalingrad. But the outcome could have been very different, as Peter Tsouras demonstrates in this thought-provoking and highly readable alternate history of the fateful battle.
