Darlington and Teesdale at War 1939-45

Product code:  04801MIL
During the Second World War, Darlington had a number of industries that were important to the war effort.

The town also had an extensive rural hinterland and the farmers of Teesdale were faced with a barrage of new demands and regulations ...

Vie et Mort Surle Front de L'Est

Product code:  03564MIL

Ham & Jam - 6th Airborne Division in Normandy - Generating Combat Effectiveness Nov 1942 to Sep 1944

Product code:  70852MIL
The highly effective leadership of Major-General Richard Gale overcame the haphazard nature of airborne operations 1939-1945, and enabled the unproven British 6th Airborne Division to achieve its objectives during the Normandy Campaign of June – August 1944.

This study examines the factors that made this possible and analyses Gale’s impact on t...

Red Army Weapons of the Second World War
