BRITISH MILITARY TRUCKS IN WEHRMACHT SERVICE

by Jochen Vollert






Vehicles captured around Dunkirk, in France, Belgium, Greece, North Africa, and with the Afrikakorps. Without these trucks the German war machine would have been much less capable of waging Blitzkrieg against the Soviet Union from 1941. While Operation Dynamo, the evacuation from Dunkirk in May and June 1940, made possible the escape of more than 300,000 French and British soldiers, they had to leave all their heavy equipment behind. The BEF lost around 65,000 vehicles, many of which returned to military service on the German side and served on the Eastern Front. Other sources for the German Wehrmacht to lay its hands on British trucks to supplement its own forces were Operation Demon in April 1941, the British evacuation from Greece, and the campaign in North Africa from February 1941 to June 1943.

THE HIDDEN NAZI: THE UNTOLD STORY OF
                                                         AMERICA'S DEAL WITH THE DEVIL

by Dean Reuter

Sidekick to SS Chief Heinrich Himmler and supervisor of Nazi rocket scientist Wernher von Braun, General Hans Kammler was responsible for the construction of Hitler’s slave labor sites and concentration camps. He personally altered the design of Auschwitz to increase crowding, ensuring that epidemic diseases would complement the work of the gas chambers. Kammler was declared dead after the war. But the aide who testified to Kammler’s supposed "suicide" never produced any proof of his death. The author's astonishingly discovered US government documents proving that Hans Kammler was in American custody for months after the war − well after his officially declared suicide. Was he protected so the United States could benefit from his intimate knowledge of the Nazi's secret weapons? The book is co-authored by Colm Lowery and Keith Chester.

A BUCKET OF SUNSHINE

by Mike Brooke 

 

Life in a Cold War Canberra Squadron - 'A Bucket of Sunshine' was the term used for the use of a nuclear bomb. This is a firsthand insight into life in the mid-1960s on a RAF Canberra nuclear-armed squadron in West Germany. Mike Brookes describes not only the technical aspect of the aircraft and its nuclear and conventional roles and weapons, but also the low-level flying that went with the job of being ready to go to war at less than three minutes notice. Brooke tells his story warts and all, with many amusing overtones, in what was an extremely serious business when the world was standing on the brink of nuclear conflict.
