OVER THE BATTLEFIELD: OPERATION BLUECOAT

by Ian Daglish 

After weeks of bitter fighting there was a desperate need to break out of the Normandy bridgehead. In late July 1944 Lieutenant-General Sir Miles Dempsey’s Second Army moved two entire corps from the Caen sector to the countryside around Caumont. Here, British XXX Corps prepared to give battle, with VII Corps advancing in support between XXX Corps and the American first Army. While the XXX Corps attack stalled, VIII Corps surged ahead and a deep penetration was made. The author examines Monty’s refusal to seize Vire, the disputed Anglo-American border and the Operation’s impact on the German Mortain offensive.

OSPREY NEW VANGUARD 282:
                                   COMBAT VEHICLES OF RUSSIA'S SPECIAL FORCES

by Mark Galeotti. illustrated by Adam Hook


Russia has seen a growing emphasis on special forces. Traditionally, the elite Spetsnaz commandos had to make do with regular vehicles or civilian-based ‘technicals'. Now at the forefront of Russian power projection, the Spetsnaz are acquiring more capable, versatile vehicles, such as the paratroopers'  BTR-D personnel carrier, and also experimenting with specialist new acquisitions, such as the Chaborz M-3 buggy and Yamaha Grizzly all-terrain vehicle. Other elite branches, such as the Arctic-warfare troops, paratroopers of the Air Assault Troops (VDV), Naval Infantry, and the elite units of the security forces are also developing and fielding new vehicles for their specialist roles.
