GERMAN U-BOAT ACE ROLF MUTZELBURG:
                                           THE PATROLS OF U-203 IN WORLD WAR II

by Luc Braeuer 

German naval officer Rolf Mutzelburg was one of the outstanding figures of the German U-boat arm. After regular successes against the North Atlantic convoys, he found new victims directly along the shores of Canada. He received the highest decorations of the period and became one of the top U-boat aces, becoming one of Admiral Donitz's “Four Aces.” A photo album from a crew member, complemented by images sourced at the U-Boat Archive at Cuxhaven, illustrates the astonishing history of U-203 with 240 photographs and documents. Its eleven combat missions are illustrated by numerous maps and sketches plus the complete translation of its logbook.

THE BATTLE OF ACTIUM 31 BC

by Lee Fratantuono

The Battle of Actium was possibly the most significant military engagement in Roman history. The naval forces of Octavian clashed with those of Antony and Cleopatra off the coast of western Greece. The victory Octavian enjoyed that day set the state for forty-four years of what would come to be known as the Augustan Peace, and was in no small way the dawn of the Roman Empire. Professor Lee Fratantuono presents a compelling and solidly documented account of what took place in the waters off the promontory of Leucas in late August and early September of 31 B.C.

CARRIER OPERATIONS IN WORLD WAR II

by J. D. Brown. Edited by David Hobbs

Between 1939 and 1945 the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm grew from a small force into a powerful strategic weapon. British carrier-based aircraft fought in the Home, Mediterranean, Eastern and British Pacific Fleets. Operations in the Pacific between 1941 and 1945, were part of the greatest maritime war in history. By March 1945 the United States Fifth Fleet with its associated Marine Corps formations was probably the most efficient and effective instrument of war deployed in the pre-nuclear age. This new work contains material from two volumes from 1968 and 1974, merged with notes for a third which David Brown prepared but never published before his death.
