GERMANY AND THE SECOND WORLD WAR: VOLUME VIII

Edited by Karl-Heinz Frieser




The Eastern Front 1943-1944: Edited by Karl-Heinz Frieser and written by a team of distinguished German historians, this eighth volume in the magisterial Germany and Second World War series deals with one of the most eventful phases of the Second World War: the battles on the eastern front in 1943 and 1944. In no other period of the war, apart from its concluding phase in 1945, did the Wehrmacht suffer such enormous losses. The land battles of those years, first and foremost the battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943, were among the biggest in world history. In the winter of 1943/44 the Red Army showed itself for the first time capable of conducting large-scale offensives against all German army groups simultaneously. The dramatic climax was reached in the summer of 1944, when the collapse of Army Group Centre led to what was then the heaviest defeat in German military history.

ARMOURED FARMER: A TANKIE'S TALE

by Malcolm Cleverley


Amusing recollections of a tankie with 3rd Royal Tank Regiment (3RTR) during the Cold War years. The author looks back on his eventful years from 1976 to 1992 with 3RTR, known as "The West Country's Own" or "The Armoured Farmers". His recollections of the mischief that he and his colleagues got up to in their snorting metal monsters whilst on various deployments around the UK and Germany certainly make for enjoyable reading, and he takes great delight in recording their antics for posterity.

A BUCKET OF SUNSHINE

by Mike Brooke 

Life in a Cold War Canberra Squadron - 'A Bucket of Sunshine' was the term used for the use of a nuclear bomb. This is a firsthand insight into life in the mid-1960s on a RAF Canberra nuclear-armed squadron in West Germany. Mike Brookes describes not only the technical aspect of the aircraft and its nuclear and conventional roles and weapons, but also the low-level flying that went with the job of being ready to go to war at less than three minutes notice. Brooke tells his story warts and all, with many amusing overtones, in what was an extremely serious business when the world was standing on the brink of nuclear conflict.

GAULEITER: VOL. 1

by Michael D. Miller & Andreas Schulz

From 1740 the British army earned itself a formidable reputation as a fighting force. However, due to its role as a police force at home, and demonisation by American propaganda, the army was viewed at home as a penal institution run by aristocratic dilettantes. This view is challenged by Stuart Reid, who paints a picture of an increasingly professional force. It was an important time of change and improvement for the British Army, and this book provides a comprehensive account of the lives, conditions and experiences of the late 18th-century infantryman.
