THE LAST PANTHER: SLAUGHTER OF THE REICH

by Wolfgang Faust

Translated from the memoir 'Kesselpanzer' this is an account of the breakout from the Halbe-Kessel, April to May, 1945. While the Battle of Berlin is widely known, the horrific story of the Halbe Kessel remains largely untold. In April 1945, victorious Soviet forces encircled 80,000 men of the German 9th Army in the Halbe area, South of Berlin, together with many thousands of German civilians. The small town of Halbe became the eye of the hurricane for the breakout, as King Tigers of the SS Panzer Corps led the spearhead to the West, supported by Panthers of the battle-hardened 21st Panzer Division. This is a first-hand account by the commander of one of those Panther tanks.

FRENCH BATTLESHIPS 1922-1956

by John Jordan & Robert Dumas

The battleships of the Dunkerque and Richelieu classes were the most radical and influential designs of the interwar period, and were coveted by the British, the Germans and the Italians following the Armistice of June 1940. After an extensive refit in the USA, Richelieu went on to serve alongside the Royal Navy during 1943-45. In this new study of these important and technically interesting ships, a full account of their development is followed by a detailed analysis of their design characteristics, profusely illustrated by inboard profiles and schematic drawings. The technical chapters are interspersed with operational histories of the ships
