BRITISH BATTLECRUISERS 1905-1920

by John Roberts

The brainchild of Admiral Sir John Fisher, battlecruisers combined heavy guns and high speed in the largest hulls of their era. They were conceived as ‘super-cruisers’ to hunt down and destroy commerce raiders using their size and gun-power. This book traces in detail the development of Fisher’s original idea into first battlecruiser, HMS Invincible of 1908, through to the ‘Splendid Cats’ of the Lion class, and culminating in HMS Hood in 1920, the largest warship in the world at the time. Their developmental history is backed by chapters covering machinery, armament and armour, plus full technical data. Illustrations include the author’s superb drawings and original Admiralty plans reproduced in full colour. This is a revised and updated edition of the classic work first published in 1997.

WITH THE 1/5TH ESSEX IN THE EAST

by Lt.-Col. T. Gibbons

Unusually for a British service Battalion, the Fifth battalion of the Essex Regiment spent its entire Great War service in action against the Turks. It had a bloody baptism of fire when it was thrown into the inferno of Gallipoli in 1915, fighting in the trenches near Anzac Cove. The rest of its war was spent in Egypt, guarding the Suez Canal, and then in Gaza and Palestine, where the battalion formed part of Allenby's successful advance to capture Jerusalem and Damascus in 1918. A facsimile reprint of the 1921 original, illustrated by photographs, maps and accompanied by a Roll of Honour, this is a fine history.

WARPAINT NO. 24: DORNIER DO 217

by Jerry Scutts

The Do 217 was one of the primary manufactures of twin engine bombers for the Luftwaffe. The 1935 vintage flying pencil went onto give reliable early war service before the basic design was progressively developed into the Do 215 of 1938. That same year a further refinement emerged as the Do217. This aircraft despite extrapolation of the basic design into the Do317 and 417 became the last Dornier bomber to see front line service with the Luftwaffe
