Armoured Warfare in the British Army 1939-45

Product code:  81030MIL
The second volume in Dick Taylor's three-volume illustrated history of the evolution of armoured manoeuvre warfare in the British army covers the period of the Second World War, in which the tank came of age and developed into the principal land weapon of decision.

As well ...

Battle Craft: Battle of the Bulge - The Last Counter Offensive in the West

Product code:  07702MIL
The Battle of the Bulge was the perfect storm for the Allies in late 1944; a tired army, overstretched supply lines, and poor intelligence on what was waiting on the other side of the hill. On 16th December, with almost complete surprise, the Germans launched their last major offensive in the West. Emerging from thick fog and through the dense woodland of the Ardennes nearly 500,000 German troops slammed into American lines.

Tankcraft (38) Panther German Army Medium Tank, Italian Front 1944-45

Product code:  65009MIL
The Allied invasions of Sicily and the Italian mainland had been met with tenacious resistance by the Germans but the defence consisted for the most part of armoured units that were little different to those the British had faced in North Africa. But in early 1944, with the landings at Anzio and Nettuno and the attempt to bypass the German defensive line, the Wehrmacht's high command began shipping heavier and more powerful tanks to the Southern Front including an increasing number Tigers and Pa...

Holidays with Hitler: State Sponsored Fun in Nazi Germany

Product code:  07960MIL

It allowed fourteen million people to enjoy annual vacation...

Meat Grinder: The Battles for the Rzhev Salient 1942-43

Product code:  51819MIL
An engrossing history of the desperate battles for the Rzhev Salient, a forgotten story brought to life by the harrowing memoirs of German and Russian soldiers. The fighting between the German and Russian armies in the Rzhev Salient during World War II was so grisly, so murderous, and saw such vast losses that the troops called the campaign The Meat Grinder. Though millions of men would fight and die there, the Rzhev Salient does not have the name recognition of Leningrad or Moscow. It was simpl...

Captured Vehicles in Wehrmacht Service

Product code:  21264MIL
This book contains hundreds of historical photos documenting the vast resources which fell into the hands of the German Army during the early WWII campaigns in the West and East until 1945.

Darlington and Teesdale at War 1939-45

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

L'Encyclopedie du Panzer Grenadier

Product code:  03526MIL
FRENCH LANGUAGE MAGAZINE. The appearance of tanks on the battlefield has profoundly changed the behaviour of infantry. For years, the armies have tried to better coordinate the action of the infantry and that of the armoured vehicles, but it is on the side of the German army that this synergy is favoured. Despite the beginnings at the start of the Second World War, the German infantrymen learned to coordinate with the tank soldiers, to finally see the appearance of Panzergrenadier, the mechanize...
