TO THE LAST ROUND

by Andrew Salmon

The epic British stand on the Imjin River, Korea 1951. Dramatic, traumatic, moving and inspirational, this is the true story of a band of men who remained at their posts, held an army and astonished the world. This is the story of the battle fought on the Imjin River in the last week of April 1951, where a stubborn defence by the British 29th Brigade caught the public’s imagination, the magnificent last stand by the ‘Glorious Glosters’ becoming the stuff of legend.

OSPREY NEW VANGUARD 169: US FAST BATTLESHIPS 1936-47,
                          THE NORTH CAROLINA AND SOUTH DAKOTA CLASSES

by Lawrence Burr 


This volume details the design, construction, and operation of the first six of the ten US fast battleships, two of the North Carolina class and four of the South Dakota class. These six battleships were all authorized in 1936 and were the first vessels built in the US since 1923. Consequently, these ships benefited from enormous technological leaps, with improvements in ship design, power, armor, armament and the single most important improvement the use of radar guided fire control helping to change the course of the war in the Pacific. Packed with first-hand accounts, battle reports, and specially created artwork this book tells the story of these war-winning vessels.

OSPREY NEW VANGUARD 172: US FAST BATTLESHIPS 1938-91,
                                                                                      THE IOWA CLASS

by Lawrence Burr

In 1938, the United States abandoned the constraints imposed by the Washington Teaty and began work on a new class of super-battleships. This book covers the design, construction, and employment of the four Iowa-class battleships, the largest in the American fleet. During World War II, they served as guards for the aircraft carriers and their bombardments provided cover for the numerous landings in the Pacific. At the war's end, the Japanese signed their surrender on the decks of an Iowa-class battleship, the USS Missouri. After World War II, the ships continued to serve, providing support during Korea, Vietnam, and even the first Gulf War. This book tells the full story of the greatest of the American battleships.

OSPREY COMBAT AIRCRAFT 63: AICHI 99 KANBAKU 'VAL' UNITS, 1937-42

by Osamu Tagaya 


The Aichi Type 99 Carrier Bomber (D3A), code named ‘Val' by Allied intelligence, was the mainstay of the Imperial Japanese Navy's carrier dive-bomber force from 1941 to 1943. It sank more Allied tonnage than any other Axis aircraft during World War II. While the Val's participation in the major carrier battles has been widely covered in other English language sources, details of its operations have received scant attention in English. Colour illustrations and photographs complement the development of dive-bombing methods in the IJN.
