THE AIR DEFENCE OF BRITAIN 1914-1918

by Christopher Cole & E. F. Cheesman

This book remains the definitive work on the subject. It describes in detail the aircraft, the aircrew and their operations in the defence of the UK against German day and night raids during World War One. These were carried out by Zeppelin airships as well as multi-engined bombers such as the Gotha. Every aircraft recorded as having taken off in response to a raid is listed, where possible with its service number and its crew. A collectible volume.



Very good in d/w - 496pp, 320 photos.

FORTRESS ISLAND MALTA

by Peter Jacobs



Italy's entry into the Second World War on 10 June, 1940, signalled the start of the siege of Malta, and for the next two and a half years the Axis powers did all they could to batter the island into submission. Malta’s defences were initially non-existent but Winston Churchill, could not give up on the island. Laying at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, where the supply route between Italy and the Axis armies in Libya crossed the Allied sea route between Gibraltar and Alexandria, Malta was strategically too important and held the key to the desert war being fought in North Africa.

THE LAST GREAT CAVALRYMAN

by Richard Mead 

The Life of General Sir Richard McCreery, Commander Eighth Army. In October 1944 Dick McCreery became the third and final Commander of the legendary Eighth Army in Italy – in succession to Monty and Oliver Leese. With his outstanding record as a fighting soldier and armoured tactician, it was no surprise to anyone that he was to be hugely successful. McCreery was commissioned into the 12th Royal Lancers in 1915 and served on the Western Front surviving a serious wound and winning the MC. As Commander 8th Army it was his brilliant plan to seize the Argenta Gap which enabled the Allies to drive the Germans back across the River Po into Austria.

NORFOLK IN THE GREAT WAR: A PICTORIAL HISTORY

by Neil R. Storey

An evocative portrait of the county during the First World War, the book reveals the huge turmoil caused by the war, including the mobilization of troops, the requisitioning of animals, the care of casualties, and the shortages of food. The author also describes how the Home Front also became the front line of enemy air raids with the first use of aerial bombing in a global conflict, and the effect of this on the population. The book reveals the effect on this rural county brought about by huge losses among its youth.
