MORTAR GUNNER ON THE EASTERN FRONT: VOLUME II

by Hans Heinz Rehfedlt

The memoir of Dr. Hans Heinz Rehfeldt covering his service in Russia, Hungary, Lithuania and the Battle for East Prussia. He was on the Eastern Front from 1941 fighting for the city of Tula, south of Moscow. Battling in freezing conditions. His descriptions of the privations are vivid and terrifying. With no winter clothes they resorted to using those taken from Soviet corpses. Returning to his old unit in May 1944, he experienced the heavy defensive battles in Romania as a platoon commander and from August 1944 in East Prussia and Lithuania. After being transferred by ship from Memel to Konigsberg in late 1944, he took part in the battles for Ostprussen in the winter of 1944/1945. Constantly exposed to the attacks of Russian bombers and fighter planes and severely wounded by shrapnel in the leg, he managed, with the help of a Russian volunteer and a horse-drawn vehicle, to get from Balga to Rosenberg, from there by ship transport via Pillau to Swinoujscie and by train to Schwerin. Fleeing impending Russian imprisonment he fled to the west, falling into American captivity on 3 May 1945, and being released in July 1945.

THE TABARIS HIGHLANDERS, 1929

by Richard Loraine-Smith



The Tabaris Highlanders were a group of volunteers from the Anglo-Argentine community who arrived in Port Stanley shortly after the beginning of World War II, intending to assist in the defence of the Falkland Islands. They had responded to worrying comment in the Argentine press on the possibility of German warships blockading transit through Cape Horn to Australia, New Zealand, and the Far East. They arrived in Port Stanley aboard the Lafonia escorted by a destroyer. Their role was to prepare defences of the islands in the event of a German Raid.

BRITISH BATTLECRUISERS 1905-1920

by John Roberts

The brainchild of Admiral Sir John Fisher, battlecruisers combined heavy guns and high speed in the largest hulls of their era. They were conceived as ‘super-cruisers’ to hunt down and destroy commerce raiders using their size and gun-power. This book traces in detail the development of Fisher’s original idea into first battlecruiser, HMS Invincible of 1908, through to the ‘Splendid Cats’ of the Lion class, and culminating in HMS Hood in 1920, the largest warship in the world at the time. Their developmental history is backed by chapters covering machinery, armament and armour, plus full technical data. Illustrations include the author´s superb drawings and original Admiralty plans reproduced in full colour. This is a revised and updated edition of the classic work first published in 1997.

WITH THE 1/5TH ESSEX IN THE EAST

by Lt.-Col. T. Gibbons


Unusually for a British service Battalion, the Fifth battalion of the Essex Regiment spent its entire Great War service in action against the Turks. It had a bloody baptism of fire when it was thrown into the inferno of Gallipoli in 1915, fighting in the trenches near Anzac Cove. The rest of its war was spent in Egypt, guarding the Suez Canal, and then in Gaza and Palestine, where the battalion formed part of Allenby's successful advance to capture Jerusalem and Damascus in 1918. A facsimile reprint of the 1921 original, illustrated by photographs, maps and accompanied by a Roll of Honour, this is a fine history.
