The G3 Battle Rifle
28620MIL
During the Cold War, the G3 was one of the world's pre-eminent battle rifles. Developed in France and Spain after 1945, the rifle was produced by the German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch. Adopted by more than 40 countries and produced on licence by many more, it was widely employed during colonial wars in Africa, insurgencies in Latin America and conflicts in the Middle East, but perhaps its widest use was in the Iran-Iraq War.

Opening the Black Box : The Turkish%
90151MIL
As any other modern militaries of the world, Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) is a complex organization relying on human force and other resources provided by society, being strictly founded on both an institutional setting and a framework of values, norms and rituals, and producing security with means and ways available to achieve the strategic objectives of Turkey. This inherent complexity reflecting the structure-culture-action nexus often means that scholars study modern militaries of the world with separated disciplines: Political Science, International Relations, Sociology, Anthropology, History, Administrative Sciences, Economics and Security Studies. With this book, the author's hope is to make these connections explicit to better understand the military change both within the Turkish military and the Turkish Civil-Military Relations (CMR) before and after failed military uprising on July 15, 2016.

FAQ 3: Frequently Asked Questions of%2
00286MIL2
This new Super-Book, like its predecessors in this same series of technical manuals called “FAQ”, is dedicated to modelling military vehicles and the techniques used for assembling, painting and weathering. The difference with the previous book is that we have moved on in the timeframe and this book is a complement of the previous ones. It also explains some new techniques that have appeared these last years, mainly to use in modern vehicles but that can be also used in vehicles of all eras. The most complete book for military vehicles edited until now. The materials that make up modern vehicles and weapons have changed considerably since World War II. Materials that were out of the question on a technological and industrial level back then are now commonplace. The use of these new materials and the manufacturing and assembly methods reflect on the way we paint and weather these models; they require a different approach. Like many other things in life, in the end the purpose is to take up new challenges. In this book we present some of those challenges.

The Defeat of the Luftwaffe: The Eas
86561AVI
In 1939 and 1940 the Nazi blitzkrieg crushed Poland and the Low Countries and France. This was a new type of warfare with air and ground forces working hand-in-glove and sweeping away all resistance. On the ground the new panzer divisions symbolised this combat revolution, and in the air its symbol was the all-conquering Luftwaffe with its fleets of Stuka dive bombers. When Hitler looked further east in 1941, the Luftwaffe turned with him, spearheading the largest invasion in world history as the Wehrmacht launched Operation Barbarossa to annihilate Stalin's Soviet Union. Within weeks they had destroyed thousands of Red Air Force planes and ruled the skies. Yet less than four years later that same Red Air Force was flying unopposed over Hitler's burning Reich Chancellery in Berlin and his much-vaunted Luftwaffe lay in utter ruins.

SAS Rescue Missions : From the Jungl
47529MIL
The British Special Air Service (SAS) is well known as a fighting force, but what is less documented is the role played by SAS soldiers as rescuers, whether of civilians or other military units. Written by a former SAS man, SAS Rescue Missions details all the occasions when SAS soldiers have saved a friendly power, from Malaya in the 1950s to Oman in the 1970s to Gambia in the 1980s, and many more. The informative text describes how a handful of SAS men achieved what often seemed impossible - reversing a military coup, defeating powerful rebels, winning over an aggrieved population. With the help of first-hand accounts from SAS soldiers, the book also examines the Regiment's role in hostage rescue, especially from the clutches of militias, such as in the former Yugoslavia, and terrorists, such as at the Iranian Embassy siege in London in 1980. In addition, the book explores the SAS's bodyguarding skills used to protect politicians and heads of state. Special soldiers require special skills and the book reveals the training and drills that SAS soldiers go through, from exercises in the `Killing House' to the sophisticated communications equipment carried on missions.

Scotland:Defending the Nation-Mapping the%
74935MIL
Scotland has had a uniquely important military history over the last five centuries. Conflict with England in the 16th century, Jacobite rebellions in the 18th century, 20th-century defences and the two world wars, as well as the Cold War, all resulted in significant cartographic activity. In this book two map experts explore the extraordinarily rich legacy of Scottish military mapping, including fortification plans, reconnaissance mapping, battle plans, plans of military roads and routeways, tactical maps, plans of mines, enemy maps showing targets, as well as plans showing the construction of defences. In addition to plans, elevations and views, they also discuss unrealised proposals and projected schemes. Most of the maps - some of them reproduced in book form for the first time - are visually striking and attractive, and all have been selected for the particular stories they tell about both attacking and defending the country.
