Under Fire

Paperback
by Barbusse, Henri
Under Fire, first published in French as Le Feu, was one of the first novels about WWI, appearing in December 1916, before the outcome of the war was clear. Set in early 1916, it follows a squad of French volunteer soldiers through the eyes of an unnamed foot soldier, who participates in and also observes the action. It combines soaring, poetic descriptions with the mundane, messy, human reality of soldiers...

The Somme Also Including The Coward

Paperback
by Gristwood, Arthur Donald
'The million British dead have left no books behind. What they felt as they died hour by hour in the mud, or were choked horribly with gas, or relinquished their reluctant lives on stretchers, no witness tells. But here is a book that almost tells it...Mr Gristwood has had the relentless simplicity to recall things as they were; he was as nearly dead as he could be without dying, and he has smelt the stench...

by Morris, W. F.
Towards the end of the war as the Germans are in their final retreat in November 1918, a British raiding party stumbles across a strange and eerie scene in a ruined chateau, under fire.

Omaha Beach: Normandy 1944

Paperback
Of the five beaches attacked on 6 June, Omaha saw the sternest fighting. Well-placed defenders on the high ground and extensive beach defenses did their job. On top of this, so much had gone wrong with the first wave: many of the amphibious DD Sherman tanks didn't reach the beach. They were released from their landing craft too far away where the greater swell swamped them and the troops landing on Omaha mi...

Bastogne: Ardennes 1944

Paperback
Bastogne will live forever in the annals of American military history. From the resounding 'Nuts', in response to the German demand for surrender, to the breaking of the siege by Patton's Third Army - brilliantly disengaged from its positions on the Saar, wheeled 90 degrees and marched northwards faster than any thought possible - the defense of Bastogne and victory in the Ardennes was one of the greatest f...

Patrol

Paperback

'Already loose sand had drifted over the stamped-down square which momentarily had distinguished the subaltern's grave: no there was no sign, no mark, no indication whatsoever. There had been, here, eleven men. Now ten rode away' In the Mesopotamian desert during World War I, the leader of a British patrol is shot and killed, by an unseen enemy. The officer is the only one who knows their orders and has no...

Wellington's Hidden Heroes: The Dutch and the Belgians at Waterloo

Hardback
by Baker-Smith, Veronica
The Duke of Wellington described the Battle of Waterloo as 'the most desperate business I ever was in .. I was never so near being beat'. The courage of British troops that day has been rightly praised ever since, but the fact that one-third of the forces which gave him his narrow victory were subjects, not of George III, but of the King of the Netherlands, has been almost completely ignored. This book s...

Mr Britling Sees it Through

Paperback
by Wells, H. G.
A profound and very human account of the early years of the war, told from the perspective of a father rather than combatants, but no less revealing. Mr Britling lives in the quintessentially English town of Matching's Easy in Essex. He is a great thinker, an essayist, but most of all an optimist. When war arrives he is forced to reassess many of the things he had been so sure of. The war brings great chang...

Behind the Lines

Paperback
by Morris, W. F.
'I never saw the man again, alive or dead. One will say that I saw him only for a moment, that it was misty at the time, and that even I did not recognise the features, covered as they were with grime and stubble. Yet I am sure that the taller of the two ragged civilians I saw in the chalk quarry that misty March morning of 1918 was that Lieutenant Peter Rawley, R. F.A., who the official records stated was ...

Field Marshal: The Life and Death of Erwin Rommel

Hardback
by Butler, Daniel Allen
Erwin Rommel was a complex man: a born leader, brilliant soldier, a devoted husband and proud father; intelligent, instinctive, brave, compassionate, vain, egotistical, and arrogant. In France in 1940, then for two years in North Africa, then finally back in France once again, at Normandy in 1944, he proved himself a master of armored warfare, running rings around a succession of Allied generals who never g...

Ruth Belville: The Greenwich Time Lady

Hardback
by David Rooney
In a world that witnessed the emergence of automatic timeballs, telegraph time signals, the speaking clock, and the BBC's "six pips," one family provided the hours and minutes to paying customers across London for more than 100 years using a pocketwatch named "Arnold." It was with Ruth Belville--the last of the timesellers, who retired in her 80s in 1939--that this remarkable episode in the history of timek...

Berlin 1933-1945

Paperback
by Kopleck, Maik
History has indelibly imprinted itself onto the cityscape of Berlin - the period of the Nazi regime in particular. The many air raids and the destruction wrought during the final Battle of Berlin have left their traces, as have the Nazis' megalomaniac restructuring plans to transform Berlin into the future world metropolis "Germania". Maik Kopleck's "Pastfinder" takes you to the well-known and less known si...
