SOVIET STRATEGIC BOMBERS

by Jason Nicholas Moore

Subtitled 'The Hammer in the Hammer and Sickle', this is a comprehensive, illustrated history of Soviet strategic bombers after the Second World War. It is a fascinating account from the reverse-engineering of interned American B-29 bombers into the first Soviet strategic bomber, the Tu-4 Bull, to the huge jet and turboprop powered aircraft of today’s Russian Air Force. It deals with the development of aircraft that entered service, plus experimental aircraft, and unbuilt projects. The service life of these bombers is covered, plus their use in places such as the Middle East and Afghanistan. The book is extensively illustrated with colour profiles and numerous colour and black and white photographs.

HITLER'S FIRST WAR

by Thomas Weber   


The  author paints a portrait of Hitler's unit, The Bavarian List Regiment, during World War I to rewrite the story of his military service. He refutes Hitler's account and so challenges the historical argument that the war led naturally to Nazism. The regiment consisted largely of conscripts and Hitler served with scores of Jews, including noted artist Albert Weisberger. The men shunned Private Hitler as a "rear area pig" and Hitler himself was still unsure of his political views when the war ended in 1918. Through the stories of comrades, the author demonstrates how and why Hitler aggressively policed the myth of his wartime experience.

TARGET LONDON: BOMBING THE CAPITAL 1915-2005

by Peter Reese 

London was a target for Zeppelins and bombers during the First World War, for bombers, V1s and rockets in the Second World War, and for terrorists in more recent times, yet rarely has the history of twentieth-century attacks on the capital been studied as a whole. This thought-provoking account vividly describes how the destructive potential of aerial bombing and terrorist actions has increased and how Londoners have struggled to protect themselves and their city. There are graphic accounts of the German raids on the city in the First World War, the Blitz, the V1 and V2 campaigns and the bombing tactics adopted by terrorists from the 1970s onward.
