SKILL AT ARMS

by Thomas J. Bennett



A History of Canadian Army Trades and Parachute Badges. A book that contains a job description for every trade in the Canadian Army since before the First World War. The vast majority of trades described are long obsolete, examples of these being Carriage and Wagon Repairer, Checker Number Taker, Chemical Technician, Paperhanger, Panel Beater, Watchmaker, Despatch Rider, Photogrammetrist and hundreds of others. For each job, a photo of their trade badge is shown if one existed, but not all trades had badges. This labour of love is now extremely rare.

THE REAL GERMAN WAR PLAN 1904-14

by Terence Zuber

On the basis of newly discovered or long neglected documents in German military archives, this book gives the first description of Schlieffen's war plans from 1904 to 1906, and Moltke's plans from 1907 to 1914. It gives the first appraisal of the military and political factors which influenced German war planning and reveals the strategy for war against Russia from 1909 to 1912. It traces the decline in the German military position and the recognition by 1913 that it would be forced to fight a war on both the Eastern and Western fronts.
