Tank Attack at Monte Cassino: The Cavenish Road Operation 1944

Product code:  64904MIL
Early morning, 19 March 1944. Tanks manned by New Zealanders, Indians and Americans launch a daring attack along a narrow mountain track on German positions north of Monte Cassino.

Yet the extraordinary story has seldom been told, and it has never been told before in the vivid detail Jeffrey Plowman brings to this new account. Using operational orders, combat report...

Tank Warfare on the Eastern Front 1941-42: Schwerpunkt

Product code:  81543MIL
The German panzer armies that swept into the Soviet Union in 1941 were an undefeated force that had honed their skill in combined arms warfare to a fine edge.

The Battle of the Bulge raises many questions which, until now, have not been adequately answered: How did the major tank types perform during the battle?

Images of War: Allied Armies in Sicily and Italy 1943-45

Latin America@War 17: Air Wars Between Ecuador and Peru Vol.2: Falso Paquisha! Aerial Operations Over the Condor Mountain Range 1981

Drawing upon extensive research in the official archives of the Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP), and documentation from multiple private sources in Ecuador and Peru, 'The Air Wars between Ecuador and Peru, Volume 2' reconstructs the history of the air forces of both nations, and the little-known story of their brief, yet bitter clashes of early 1981.
