FORGOTTEN ARCHIVES 1: THE LOST SIGNAL CORPS PHOTOS

by Darren Neely 



 

The US Army Signal Corps photographs were the official standard for photo documentation of the army during World War II. These photos were captured by trained cameramen and in most cases were taken under enemy fire, in a ditch with a riflemen or as enemy shells landed nearby. The photos in this book have not previously been published or have only appeared in hard to find unit histories. They cover events in the ETO, from the Normandy breakout until the end of the war. Beautifully illustrated with 266 rare large format photos, Forgotten Archives 1 is must for the armour enthusiast.

RISING '44: THE BATTLE FOR WARSAW

by Norman Davies 

On 1st August, 1944, Polish insurgents of the Home Army rose against the Germans. The resulting two-month battle left the city in ruins and led to bitter controversies over the Allies failure to rescue the city. This account of the uprising is highlighted by reminiscences from Polish and German participants, but the bulk relates to the political background and in the aftermath with diplomatic wrangling between the exiled Polish government in London, the Western Allies and Stalin. It denounces Stalin for deliberately allowing the non-Communist Home Army to be crushed, the Western Allies for acquiescing, and British intellectuals for toeing the Communist line.

LOW INTENSITY OPERATIONS

by General Sir Frank Kitson

Subtitled 'Subversion, Insurgency, and Peacekeeping', this is a reprint of Sir Frank Kitson's acclaimed work. When the book was first published in the 1970s, the US was losing an insurgency in Vietnam, and Great Britain was in its final stages as a colonial power. By that point, Britain had participated in more than 30 low intensity operations, and had been unsuccessful in most of them. Kitson, a veteran of many, decided to put his thoughts on paper as to how he thought these battles could be won.

ATOMIC: THE FIRST WAR OF PHYSICS AND
                    THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE ATOM BOMB - 1939-49

by Jim Baggott 

A popular account of the race to build humankind's most destructive weapon. The book draws on declassified material, such as MI6's FarmHall transcripts, coded Soviet messages cracked by American cryptographers in the Venona project, and interpretations by Russian scholars of documents from the Soviet archives. This is an epic story of science and technology at the very limits of human understanding - a tale barely believable as fiction, which just happens to be historical fact.
