The Forest of the Hanged

Paperback
by Rebreanu, Liviu
During the First World War, just behind the eastern front, there was a forest, where Austrians and Hungarians used to hang deserters. To this place came Apostol Bologa, a young Romanian officer eager to serve his country. Born in a Romanian region of Transylvania which was then under Hungarian rule, he had naturally enough joined the Austro-Hungarian army. But soon Romania itself entered the war, and Bologa...

Civil War London: A Military History of London Under Charles I and Oliver Cromwell

Paperback
by Flintham, David
London was the critical location throughout the English Civil Wars - a fact that has been emphasised by countless historians, with some going as far to say that by fleeing his capital in January 1642, King Charles I lost the war several months before the fighting actually started. Most studies focus on London as the political and economic powerhouse - overlooking the fact that militarily, London was just as...

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...

The Somme Also Including The Coward

Paperback
by Gristwood, Arthur Donald

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...

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...
