OPERATION FALL WEISS

by Stephan Janzyk





An account of German Paratroopers in the Poland Campaign, 1939. Although the fledgling paratroop operations in Belgium and the Netherlands in 1940, and on Crete in 1941, attracted worldwide attention, less well-known is that the use of airborne forces had been planned for the invasion of Poland in 1939, in an act that began the Second World War. On several occasions the men of Parachute Regiment 1 were sitting ready in their Ju52 transports, fully equipped and ready to go. Many of these young and in-experienced paratroopers would go on to experience the full horrors of warfare and for some of them, the Polish Campaign would end in a ‘hero‘s death’. The author uses war diaries, maps, contemporary documents and photographs, including those from various private collections around the world.

THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR VOLUME 1:
                    THE BATTLE FOR KHUZESTAN, SEPTEMBER 1980-MAY 1982

by E. R. Hooton & Tom Cooper


The Iran-Iraq War was one of the bloodiest conflicts of the 20th century, accidentally creating Islamic fundamentalist terrorism. There have been many books on the conflict, but this is the first detailed military history using materials from both sides, as well as materials obtained from US intelligence and British governmental archives. It provides a unique insight into a war which began through miscalculation and rapidly escalated into the longest conventional conflict in the post-WWII era. This first volume looks at the background and describes in detail how Saddam Hussein decided to invade, but hamstrung, the Iraqi Army to restrict its greatest success to a narrow strip of territory in Iran’s southern province of Khuzestan.
