THE END OF THE RUSSIAN IMPERIAL ARMY: VOLUME II

by Alan K.  Wildman 







Subtitled 'The Road to Soviet Power and Peace' this second volume takes up the story in April 1917, focusing on Imperial Army soldiers reaction to the war, to their officers, and to the politics of the Russian Revolution occurring around them. It is both a military and a social history, viewing the collapse of the Imperial Army as a social process that included the coincidence of goals among both soldiers and Bolsheviks. The author traces in detail the breakdown of the army as a fighting machine, and the tense relations of officers and soldiers during the June, 1917 offensive.

RISING SUN, FALLING SKIES

by Jeffrey Cox

Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese offensive in the Far East seemed unstoppable. Allied forces engaged in a futile attempt to halt their rapid advance, culminating in the massed fleet of American, British, Dutch, and Australian forces clashing with the Japanese at the Battle of the Java Sea. The Allied response was catastrophic, losing their largest warships and their tenuous toe-hold in the south Pacific within the first 72 hours of the battle. However, the Allied goal was never an outright victory, simply a delaying action.

SS CHARLEMAGNE

by Tony Le Tissier 

 

The story of the 33rd Waffen-Grenadier Division of the SS in May 1945. As the Red Army crushed the last pockets of German resistance in central Berlin, French soldiers fought back. They were the last surviving members of SS Charlemagne which was made up of French volunteers, and were among the final defenders of the city and of the Fuhrer bunker. Their extraordinary story gives a compelling insight into the dreadful climax of the Battle for Berlin. Their fate after the German defeat was grim. Once captured, they were shot out of hand by their French compatriots or imprisoned.

THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN: AN EPIC CONFLICT REVISITED

by Christer Bergström 

Published for the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this is the most thorough examination of the topic ever written. Illustrated with maps and rare photos, plus a colour section depicting the aircraft, this impressive book lays out the conflict as seldom seen before. The battle was a turning in point in military history, and arguably in the fate of the world. By late summer 1940 Germany had conquered all its opponents on the continent, including the British Army. Hitler had only one remaining objective - the British Isles themselves. However, before he could invade, his Luftwaffe needed to wipe the Royal Air Force from the skies. Thus took place history's first strategic military campaign conducted in the air alone. There is no doubt that it was the unparalleled efforts of The Few that won the battle.
