LRDG RHODESIA: RHODESIANS IN THE LONG RANGE DESERT GROUP

by Jonathan Pittaway & Craig Fourie






This very scarce book traces the history of Rhodesian LRDG Patrols from their formation in 1940 to disbandment in 1945. It follows their exploits in the Western Desert, The Agean (including Leros), Middle East and Balkan theatres. Lavishly illustrated with many previously unseen photos of operations and personnel, including such well known leaders as Ralph Bagnold, David Stirling and Le Clerc. The book details gallantry citations, some of which are in the public domain for the first time. It has a full nominal role and a comprehensive order of battle by rank and number. There are numerous black and white and colour illustrations throughout of varied and rare examples of LRDG cloth insignia and badges.

New d/w - large format,  268pp, 600 + colour & b/w illustrations, maps etc.

WAS IT YESTERDAY?

by A. M. Bown    



A memoir of the 1914-1918 War. When he volunteered in 1914, A.M.Bown was a twenty-year-old scholar at Oxford studying science. He became an artillery subaltern and remained one throughout the First World War, being wounded twice and gaining the Military Cross for bravery. This book, although fictionalised, grew out of his personal experiences and is a vivid and authentic account. He tells of ordinary day-to-day incidents, some amusing, some frightening, and gives a sense of real lives - and real deaths. He keeps throughout a respect for his fellow soldiers.

DELPRADO/OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES (MEN & LEGENDS): 
                                                        POLISH FIGHTERS OF WORLD WAR 2

by Robert Gretzyngier

Pilots of the Polish Air Force saw action from the first day of World War 2 until the final victory in May 1945. Flying outmoded P.11 fighters in defence of their country in September 1939, a handful of pilots inflicted serious losses on the Luftwaffe. With the invasion of Western Europe the surviving pilots were once more in action in Britain in frontline RAF Fighter Command units or generic squadrons formed in July/August 1940. The Polish pilots made a significant contribution to victory in the Battle of Britain, and went on to see action in Western Europe and North Africa. Co-authored by Wojtek Matusiak, the book includes scale drawings and colour artwork by the author, Mike Chappell and Robert Grudzien.
