THE DARK HEART OF HITLER'S EUROPE

by Martin Winstone

Nazi rule in Poland under the General Government. After the German and Soviet attack on Poland in 1939, vast swathes of Polish territory, including Warsaw and Krakow, fell under Nazi occupation in an administration which became known as the 'General Government'. The region was not directly incorporated into the Reich but was ruled by a German regime, headed by the brutal Governor General, Hans Frank. As the principal 'racial laboratory' of the Third Reich, it was the site of Aktion Reinhard, the largest killing operation of the Holocaust, and of a campaign of terror and ethnic cleansing against Poles which was intended to be a template for the rest of eastern Europe

WELLINGTON AGAINST MASSENA

by David Buttery

The third invasion of Portugal, 1810-1811. Wellington's clash with Massena was one of the most remarkable contests between two commanders in the Peninsular War. Their campaign of manoeuvre, battle and attrition across Spain and Portugal in 1810 and 1811 had a decisive impact on the outcome of the war. Wellington's reputation was enhanced, and Massena's was ruined. Using a variety of sources, in particular eyewitness accounts from both sides, the author reassesses the famous confrontations at Ciudad Rodrigo, Almeida, Busaco, the lines of Torres Vedras and the final battle at Fuentes de Onoro.
