OSPREY CAMPAIGN 265: FALL GELB (2).
                                        AIRBORNE ASSAULT ON THE LOW COUNTRIES

by Douglas C. Dildy. Illustrated by Peter Dennis

The great blitzkrieg campaign of May/June 1940 saw German forces pour through Holland and Belgium to confront the French and British. The assault was audacious; it relied on speed, feinting and manoeuvre as much as superior force, and in the end these qualities were to prove decisive. Featuring vivid illustrations, illuminative bird's eye views and maps, this book charts the unfolding of an unprecedented ‘lightning war', which saw the first ever airborne assault at a strategic level, and the largest clash of armour to date. Never in the history of warfare had the clash between such large, powerful, and apparently equal forces been decided so swiftly.

OSPREY NEW VANGUARD 242:
                                   SOVIET COLD WAR GUIDED MISSILE CRUISERS

    by Edward Hampshire. Illustrated by Paul Wright

Heavily armed and formidable, guided missile cruisers formed the core of the Soviet Navy during the Cold War. From the last class of conventional Sverdlov-class cruisers through to increasingly complex and formidable missile cruisers, these ships ensured that NATO took the Soviet naval threat seriously. Soviet Cold War Guided Missile Cruisers covers all classes of these impressive warships, from the early Sverdlov through the Kynda, Kresta, Kara and Slava to the enormous Kirov classes. This comprehensive volume examines the design, development, and intended role of these impressive, hi-tech warships, and recounts their dramatic operational history as NATO and Soviet warships faced off against each other during the long Cold War at sea.
