THE ARMIES OF ANCIENT PERSIA: THE SASSANIANS

by Kaveh Farrokh

Throughout most of the classical period, Persia was one of the great superpowers, placing a limit on the expansion of Western powers. It was the most formidable rival to the Roman empire for centuries, until Persia, by then under the Sassanians, was overwhelmed by the Islamic conquests in the seventh century AD. The Sassanians, the native Iranian dynasty that ousted their Parthian overlords in AD 226, developed a highly sophisticated army that was able for centuries to hold off all comers. They continued the Parthian's famous winning combination of swift horse archers with heavily-armoured cataphract cavalry, also making much use of war elephants

NORTHROP GRUMMAN B-2 SPIRIT

by Bill Holder 



A beautifully illustrated history of Northrop's amazing Stealth Bomber, the batlike B-2 Spirit. Developed using many of Jack Northrop's Flying Wing theories (and looking remarkably similar to the revolutionary XB-35 and YB-49 bombers of the 'forties) the Spirit has truly revolutionised the USAF's ability to project strategic power on a global scale. Four stealthy B-2s can deliver the same bombing power as thirty two standard attack aircraft backed up by twenty eight escort and defence suppression aircraft and fifteen tankers!

ONE SOLDIER'S WAR IN CHECHNYA

by Arkady Babchenko. Translated by Nick Allen

A compulsively readable and vivid account of life as a young soldier in Russia's Chechen wars, it takes the raw and mundane reality of days amid guns and grenades and twists it into compelling, chilling, and eerily elegant prose. Babchenko traces his journey from innocence to experience, beginning with his teenage arrival in the transit camp just north of Chechnya and harsh treatment by his seniors as a naive and scared new recruit, through to his period of active duty at the front, by which time he has become a brutalized and hardened soldier.
