42453MIL
In Prelude to D-Day the author portrays life in Devon before the war and changes brought about during the early war years up to the arrival of the US Forces leading to the evacuation of the South Hams.

New light is thrown on the circumstances surrounding Operation Tiger, a training exercise in which over 700 troops lost their lives. The D-Day landings themselves are covered, as are the lessons learned, with rare photographs and maps making this a significant and important book.

Camera On 9 Staff Cars in Germany WW
81869MIL
This new photo-album in the "Camera On" series contains over 150 photographs of private cars adapted for military use by the German forces during WWII. With mobilization of the German armed forces in 1939, the lack of motorized transport was identified as a critical issue. In order to partly remedy this, the military commandeered much of both Germany's and its satellite dependencies' passenger car stock; thus the military motor pool was supplemented by thousands confiscated civilian passenger cars, which were partially adapted to military use.

The Combat History of 21st Panzer Divi
74140MIL
For years, one of the most essential sources for study of the Normandy invasion was known only to a select few and nearly unobtainable even to those who knew of its existence. It has never before been translated. None of the major English language histories of the Normandy Invasion refer to it, even though it is the history of the only German armoured division that was in place in the Caen area at the moment of the invasion. It reveals key facts that are missing elsewhere. At long last, Werner Kortenhaus' history of the 21. Panzer Division has been published in English. Kortenhaus' account of the division's subsequent commitment, in the Lorraine - Saar Region - Alsace area provides intriguing detail on this little known sector as the southern wing of Patton's 3rd Army strove for the Upper Rhine area of Germany. The last section follows the division after its hasty transfer to the Oder Front, facing the final Russian onslaught on Berlin. In revising and updating his account, originally released in two massive typed volumes, Die Schlacht um Caen, 1944, Caumont, Falaise Seine, der Einsatz der 21.

Useless Mouths: The British Army''s%
90908MIL
This books looks of the British Army's supply service, how it developed, and how it failed - especially in the Crimea War - and how reforms in the 19th century reformed it. It examines how the lines of communication functioned during WW1 and the strains on it during the March 1918 German offensive. The focus of the book looks at the developments in the interwar years, and how it functioned during the French Campaign of May/June 1940. The role of the LOC after the German breakthrough in France has been underestimated and under reported. This part of the British Army performed well in difficult circumstances but individual efforts could not compensate for the woeful lack of organisation, equipment and training, nor that few if any senior officers had either experience or training to carry out the posts they occupied. Only the fortuitous mechanisation of the general transport system of the Army, not due to doctrine or foresight but a dearth of horses in the civil economy, enabled the Army to retreat faster and further than their horse bound allies - the French - and enemies - the Germans. There was bloody-mindedness on the part of the regimental officers and rank and file soldiers to do their best in difficult circumstances.

Great World War II WeaponsTiger Tank
46812MIL
The Tiger was the biggest and most powerful tank the world had seen when it first appeared in 1942. It could be a terrifying machine to the enemy when it was employed by commanders who understood its strengths and weaknesses. However, its virtues were often squandered. With a limited range of operation thanks to its massive fuel consumption and prone to mechanical failure, it was never suitable for deep penetration of enemy positions, as was seen at Kursk. It was also defeated in mountainous terrain in Italy and Tunisia. Tiger Tank traces the Tiger's history from the strategic requirements that created it, the technology that made it, to the conflicts that tested it. The book analyses the tactical doctrines that determined how it was deployed and examines how successful these were when the Tiger saw combat from Russia in 1942 to Berlin in 1945. Specification tables provide manufacturing details, while comparative tables allow the reader to make at-a-glance assessments of how the Tiger matched its rivals. Authoritatively written and featuring 70 colour and black-&-white photographs, fully annotated colour cutaway and three-view profile artworks, Tiger Tank tells the story of World War II's most powerful tank.
