JAPANESE BATTLESHIPS 1897-1945

by R. A. Burt

This Photographic Archive contains some 125 stunning images of the battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy, many unfamiliar, some very rare. The period covered is from the launch of Japan's first real contemporary battleship, Yashima, built by Armstrong's on the Tyne, up the final destruction of her fleet in the Pacific in 1945. During that time Japan built up the third largest navy in the world and all her dreadnoughts saw action in the Second World War. Of these, only Nagato survived the conflict. She was to become a target in the Bikini A-bomb tests in 1946.

LIVERPOOL VCs

by James Murphy

 

In Liverpool local heroes tend to be drawn from football or the music business or from the period when the city was one of Britain's greatest ports. Although it has produced many military heroes, only double VC winner Noel Chavasse has had the recognition he deserves. These biographies of twenty-three Liverpool VC winners show what extraordinary sacrifices the men of the city made. The main purpose of the book is to show these men at war, but the author also provides an insight into their civilian lives.

DELPRADO/OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES (MEN & LEGENDS): 
                                                        POLISH FIGHTERS OF WORLD WAR 2

by Robert Gretzyngier

Pilots of the Polish Air Force saw action from the first day of World War 2 until the final victory in May 1945. Flying outmoded P.11 fighters in defence of their country in September 1939, a handful of pilots inflicted serious losses on the Luftwaffe. With the invasion of Western Europe the surviving pilots were once more in action in Britain in frontline RAF Fighter Command units or generic squadrons formed in July/August 1940. The Polish pilots made a significant contribution to victory in the Battle of Britain, and went on to see action in Western Europe and North Africa. Co-authored by Wojtek Matusiak, the book includes scale drawings and colour artwork by the author, Mike Chappell and Robert Grudzien.
