Cold War 1945-1991: Suez Crisis 1956 : End of Empire and the Reshaping of the Middle East

Product code:  57081MIL
In 1956 Egyptian president Gamal Abdul Nasser nationalized the Suez Canal, ending nearly a century of British and French control over the crucial waterway. Ignoring U.S. diplomatic efforts and fears of a looming Cold War conflict, British Prime Minister Anthony Eden misled Parliament and the press to take Britain to war alongside France and Israel. In response to a secretly pre-planned Israeli attack in the Sinai, France and Britain intervened as peacemakers'. The invasion of Egypt was supposed ...

Valley of the Shadow: The Siege of Dien Bien Phu

Product code:  24417MIL
Over the past five decades, Western authors have generally followed a standard narrative of the siege of Dien Bien Phu, depicting the Viet Minh besiegers as a faceless horde which overwhelmed the intrepid garrison by sheer weight of numbers, superior firepower, and logistics. However, a wealth of new Vietnamese-language sources tell a very different story, revealing for the first time the true Viet Minh order of battle and the details of the severe logistical constraints within which the besiege...

Africa@War 41: Mau Mau The Kenyan Emergency 1952-60

Product code:  66878AVI
The British on the whole managed to disengage from Africa with a minimum of ill feeling and violence, conceding power in the Gold Coast, Nigeria and Sierra Leone under an orderly constitutional process, and engaging only in the suppression of civil disturbances in Nyasaland and Northern Rhodesia as the practicalities of a political handover were negotiated. In Kenya, however, matters were different. A vociferous local settler lobby had accrued significant economic and political authority under a...

Brazilian Stuart M3, M3A1, X1, X1A2 and their Derivatives

Product code:  42592MIL
Somewhat eclipsed by medium and heavy tanks for its secondary role in the European Theatre of Operations during World War II, the Stuart tank was, however, more successful further away in the Pacific Theatre, where it surpassed in efficiency all its Japanese counterparts, albeit later out-performed by the M4 Sherman. It was in the post-war years that it would prove its mettle in Latin America due to its ease of operation and maintenance, allied to its low weight. It turned out to be much more us...

Tanks of the Early IDF - History of the IDF Armoured Corps Vol 1

Product code:  42591MIL
This book looks at examples of the first tank types to enter Israeli service. Modern-day Israel’s fight for independence began at the end of November 1947, after the UN issued its UN Partition Resolution for Palestine and continued well beyond its actual Declaration of Independence in May 1948. Knowing that there was a danger of invasion by multiple neighbouring countries, efforts to obtain weapons spread to various places around the world, plus Jewish forces took advantage of opportunities to ...

Africa@War 42: Portuguese Dragoons 1966-74 The Return to Horseback

Product code:  66281MIL
Between 1961 and 1974 Portugal fought a war to retain its African colonies of Angola, Guinea-Bissau, and Mozambique. Collectively known as the Campaigns for Africa, the origin of the conflict stems from the post-World War II atmosphere of nationalism and anti-colonial fervour. The Angolan insurgency began in 1961, followed by unrest in Guinea-Bissau in 1963 and Mozambique in 1964. Portugal's initial actions in Angola were based on foot-slogging by infantry, considered the best method of addressi...

Tankcraft (17) M1 Abrams: The US's Main Battle Tank in American and Foreign Service 1981-2018

Product code:  49758MIL
Since its introduction in 1981, at the height of the Cold War, the Abrams main battle tank has been one of the most visible and iconic symbols of American military power, and it is the fascinating subject of this heavily illustrated historical and modelling guide in the TankCraft series by David Grummitt. Designed to meet head-on the massed tank forces of the Warsaw Pact, its combat debut in fact came in a different scenario in 1991 during the First Gulf War. Since then it has served in the peac...
