BERLIN THEN AND NOW

By Tony Le Tissier

A look at Berlin using 'then and now' photographs. The turbulent years of the Weimar Republic, when Communists and Nazis fought each other for control of the streets and the Third Reich with its spectacular grandeur and glory. However the 'Thousand Year Reich', and the architectural megalomania it spawned, began to crumble within ten years as the Allies dealt out massive retribution from the air. The Soviet land offensive which followed finally ground what was left of the city into dust. Berlin was the focal point of the Cold War in Europe, culminating in 1961 with the fateful division of the city by 'the Wall'. Finally, the story comes full circle with the unbelievable events of 1989-90. Spine binding loose/repaired.

THE GERMAN SNIPER BADGE 1944-1945

by Rolf Michaelis


Hitler created the Sniper Badge on August 20, 1944, to impel soldiers to train and be used as snipers. Thus the strategic importance of single combat was stressed in highly stylized propaganda. Since the soldiers themselves were in sight of the enemy troops, unlike the members of other service arms, they experienced the death of their enemies directly. In this concise history, this badge, as well as the actions of German snipers, is examined and includes colour images of badges, weapons, awards, soldbuchs, and war era photos.

                                          INDIAN ARMY SHERMANS IN THE FAR EAST

by Dennis Oliver

From 1942 until August 1945, British and Indian troops battled against the Empire of Japan and its allies across the mountains and jungles of Burma. In a country were the weather was as limiting as any enemy action the US built Sherman tank proved its worth in the final campaign to drive the Japanese from South-East Asia. Dennis Oliver describes and illustrates the role played by these remarkable vehicles and the crews who manned them through Britain’s longest campaign of the Second World War to the vain attempt to maintain order in post-war Indonesia.

THE BLACK DEVIL'S MARCH - A DOOMED ODYSSEY

by Evan McGilvray


The 1st Polish Armoured Division, under the leadership of General Stanislaw Maczek, arose out of the ashes of the Polish defeat in 1939. It was able to return to Europe in August 1944 on the side of the Western Allies, achieving glory in the Normandy bocage, the Falaise Gap, Hill 262, the advance into Belgium and Holland, and final victory on German soil. Because of the politics of post-war Europe, it was unable to liberate Poland from the tyranny of the Soviet Union. The book is researched from Polish, English and German sources, and includes nearly 100 photographs (many previously unpublished), maps, and detailed appendices, including a list of medal recipients.
