World War II Snipers: The Men, Their Guns, Their Stories

Product code:  40985MIL
The scope of World War II Snipers is extensive, with three chapters each on the major theatres of the war including Western Europe, Eastern Europe and the Pacific. These are supported by a lengthy chapter on the sniper rifles used by the snipers and their equipment. Finally, the last chapter discusses many overlooked or ignored subjects not raised by other researchers and provides much food for thought.

Burning Steel: A Tank Regiment at War 1939-45

Product code:  66393MIL
This is the story of a tank regiment: the 2nd Fife and Forfar Yeomanry in the Second World War. Raw and visceral personal recollections from the men themselves recall some of the most dramatic and horrific scenes imaginable - the sheer nerve-wracking tension of serving in highly inflammable Sherman tanks, the sudden impact of German shells, the desperate scramble to bail out, and the awful fate of those who couldn't. Even if they made it out of the tank, they were still vulnerable to being bruta...

Product code:  49830MIL
Smashing Hitler's Guns is a ground-breaking new history of the legendary Rangers' attack on Pointe-du-Hoc. The Ranger attack on the German gun batteries at Pointe-du-Hoc in the early morning hours of D-Day is the stuff of legend.

The Tank Corps In The Great War Vol.1 Conception, Birth and Baptism of Fire, November 1914-16

Product code:  90816MIL
This is the first volume of a new six volume history of the Tank Corps during the First World War. The first history was written shortly after the end of the Great War by Lt Col JFC Fuller in 1919. This, and the subsequent version written by Sir Basil Liddell Hart in 1959, provided a broad overview of the origins of the Tank Corps but did not undertake detailed analysis of the tank actions and the changes introduced in the organisation or operation of tank units as a result of the lessons learne...

Bloody Verrieres: The I. SS-Panzerkorps Defence of the Verrieres-Bourguebus Ridges Vol.1 Operations Goodwood and Atlantic 18-22 July 1944

Product code:  40022MIL
South of the Norman city of Caen, the twin features of the Verrieres and Bourguebus ridges were key stepping stones for the British Second Army in late July 1944 - taking them was crucial if it was to be successful in its attempt to break out of the Normandy bridgehead. To capture this vital ground, Allied forces would have to defeat arguably the strongest German armoured formation in Normandy: the I. SS-Panzerkorps "Leibstandarte." The resulting battles of late July and early August 1944 saw po...

Tankcraft (35) Panzer IV Medium Tank - German Army and Waffen-SS Normandy Campaign , Summer 1944

Product code:  18043MIL
When the Allied armies landed on the Normandy beaches on 6 June 1944 the backbone of the armoured reaction force awaiting them was made up of 758 Pzkpfw IV tanks, a number which represents almost half the fully-tracked vehicles available for the defence of the West. The first models of these tanks had entered service in November 1937 and although replacements had been considered, the original design was continually up-gunned and up-armoured. Perhaps lacking the glamour of the Panther and Tiger, ...

Tankcraft (34) Panther Medium Tank - German Army and Waffen SS Eastern Front, Summer 1943

Product code:  17961MIL
In July 1943 the German army launched what was to be its last major offensive on Soviet soil. Codenamed Operation Citadel, the attack had initially been scheduled to commence in May but was postponed by Hitler on a number of occasions to allow the divisions in the East to be reinforced and to ensure that the new Panther tanks could be deployed. In the fifth book on the Panther in this series Dennis Oliver examines the first vehicles that left the assembly plants to go into service against the Re...

Italienfeldzug: German Tanks and Vehicles 1943-45 Vol.3

Product code:  62653MIL
In the third volume of the Italienfeldzug series an exhaustive study of the ground operations and the most important vehicles fielded by the German army in the Italian campaign, between 1943 and 1945, from the Allied invasion of Sicily to the capitulation of the Third Reich. The authors describe the German Army vehicles in detail, making extensive use of significant and in some cases unpublished photographs from a wide range of sources, including photos from official German and Allied archives t...

Deutsche Afrikakorps 1941-43 History Organization and Uniforms of the German Ground Forces in North Africa

Product code:  72779MIL
The Northern-African theatre of operations meant new challenges to both parties, mainly because of the weather and the rough environment. The units could not act far from their supply bases. Right from the start a movement war was fought, with constant offensives and counterattacks. The forces, the tanks and the soft skinned vehicles got often stuck, short of fuel and supplies.

Walther Pistols PP, PPK and P38

Product code:  50843MIL
While the PP and PPK were intended for police work, the Walther P 38 was produced for the Germany military; all three pistols have garnered a formidable international reputation since the 1930s. The innovative Walther PP (Polizeipistole), a double-action semi-automatic pistol intended for the law-enforcement market, became available in 1929 and went on to arm the police of several European countries in the 1930s. Its smaller cousin the PPK, more readily concealed for undercover work but with red...

Duel 120: SU-152/ISU-152 vs Tiger - Eastern Front 1943-45

Product code:  48642MIL
This fully illustrated volume compares two of the most iconic AFV's: the SU-152/ISU-152 and the Tiger, used on the Eastern Front during World War II. On the Eastern Front in 1943, the Tiger-equipped heavy Panzer battalions gave German armoured divisions an unmatched capability that cost the Red Army dearly. The Tiger's 88mm gun had the potential to carve through Soviet defences in the attack and cause havoc amongst advancing Soviet armoured formations when used in defence.
