NOBODY’S HERO

by Bernard Hart-Hallam

Misadventures of an RAF Policeman in World War II. The unusual story of Bernard ‘Barney’ Hart-Hallam, who served as a policeman with the Provost Marshal’s Branch of the RAF 2nd Tactical Air Force (2TAF). On D-Day, Barney was the first RAF man to set foot on ‘Juno’ beach. From then on, following close behind the front-line troops, he and his colleagues in No.6 RAF Security Section were responsible for maintaining security in the wake of the Allied advance across Europe. They rounded up collaborators, spies and fleeing Nazis and were entertained by gangsters and good-time girls.

Born during the horrendous Battle of Verdun in 1916, The Storks became France's premier fighting group in World War I. Initially comprising the Escadrilles N3, N26, N73 N103 and under the leadership of Felix Brocard, GC12 counted among its fighter pilots most of the big French aces of the war - Guynemer Fonck (with 75 victories), Heurteaux, Deullin, de Sevin, Bozon-Verdurez and many more. It also had several American volunteers amongst its ranks, notably Frank Baylies, Edwin Parsons, Bert Hall and Charles Biddle. The book is packed with photographs of pilots and aircraft plus side view drawings of aircraft and their markings.

HANDBOOK TO ROMAN LEGIONARY FORTRESSES

by Michael C. Bishop

This is a reference guide to Roman legionary fortresses throughout the former Roman Empire, of which approximately eighty-five have been located and identified. With the expansion of the empire and the garrisoning of its army in frontier regions during the 1st century AD, Rome began to concentrate its legions in large permanent bases. Some have been explored in great detail, others are barely known, but this book brings together for the first time the legionary fortresses of the whole empire. At the heart of the book is a referenced and illustrated catalogue of the known bases, each with a specially prepared plan and an aerial photograph. The book is complemented by a website providing online links to particular fortresses and a Google Earth file containing all of the known fortress locations.
