OUT OF ACTION

by Chris Cocks

The sequel to the best-selling Fireforce, Part 1, of 'Out of Action' chronicles Chris Cocks’ final 16 months of combat in the bush war in PATU, the Rhodesian Police Ant-Terrorist Unit. It is a time of unbelievable cruelty as part-time white reservists battle overwhelming odds, without air support, as Mugabe’s ZANLA guerrillas swamp the country in the build-up to independence in 1980. Part 2 recounts the author’s painful adjustment to life as a civilian - a fifteen-year odyssey in the embryonic state of Zimbabwe. It is the story of a young man, brutalized by war, who seeks escape in alcohol and drugs.

BUNKER "HORNISSE"

by Eike Hemmer & Robert Milbradt

THE GUARDS BRIGADE IN THE CRIMEA

by Michael Springman

The Guards Brigade consisted of three battalions, the 3rd Grenadier Guards, 1st Coldstream Guards and 1st Scottish Fusilier Guards (as the Scots Guards were then known). The book examines the causes of the War and provides an analysis of the woeful disorganization of the Army (in contrast to the efficiency of the Royal Navy), as well as the Brigade's performance in the major battles including Alma and Inkerman. The author describes the Russians' plans, the ground, and the conditions experienced by the long suffering troops, and examines the roles and abilities of the various commanders

PULL UP A SANDBAG

by Jonathan Smiles

Subtitled 'Morale Under Attack?' this is a Celebration of Squaddie Humour. A Comical Compilation of British Military Humour contributed by military personnel from the British Army, Navy and Air Force, some of the descriptions of the mad, bad and dangerous antics of servicemen on and off duty, are enough to scare the living daylights out of the average civilian, whilst others would cause even a hardened RSM to blush - but they will all be recognised as true to life by anyone who has served in the armed forces.

by Charles Whiting

The story the atrocity committed by the 1-SS Panzer Battle Group under SS-Obersturmbannfuehrer Joachim Peiper in the Ardennes in 1944. One hundred and thirteen American prisoners-of-war were assembled in a field near the village of Malmedy. Though Peiper was not present, soldiers under his command from 1-SS Panzer Division opened fire on the men. They then shot, or clubbed to death, any survivors. In May 1946, Peiper and 70 of his men were put on trial. Forty-three of those accused were sentenced to death and the rest received prison sentences. The death sentences were later commuted to imprisonment. After the war Peiper took up residence in France where, in the village of Traves, he was murdered in 1974.
