Vie et Mort Surle Front de L'Est

Product code:  03564MIL
FRENCH LANGUAGE MAGAZINE. The fighting on the Ostfront was amply documented by the press agencies of the various belligerents, each sending its war correspondents to take a series of shots at the front. But that is to forget that these photos, de facto sanitized and selected, paint only a partial picture of the situation. The Landser then also has a camera in its luggage, and the pictures taken by the soldiers show another reality of the battlefield and the war in the East. In this book, Anthony...

The Occupation of Hong Kong 1941-45

Product code:  10274MIL
The Battle for Hong Kong lasted eighteen days. It was always going to be a losing battle. Winston Churchill knew that Hong Kong could not be defended or relieved if attacked. It had become an isolated outpost to be held as long as possible. After reaching the limits of endurance the British administration surrendered the Crown Colony on Christmas Day, December 1941. The military defeat ushered in a brutal occupation by the Imperial Japanese Army, who ruled the captured territory under martial la...

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. Despite its scattered parachute landings 6th Airborne achieved its D-Day goals, and held the line for three months, a task for which it was not equipped. This study examines the factors that made this possible and analyses Gale’s impact on t...

The Russia-Ukraine War Factbook

Product code:  42646MIL
The Russia-Ukraine War erupted on February 24, 2022, when Russian military forces took much of the world by surprise by launching a massive, multi-front land, air, and sea attack against Ukraine. The Russians targeted Kyiv in the north and other key cities in the east and south, expecting a quick victory. However, the Ukrainians mounted a fierce defence of their country, deploying old and new technology combined with creative tactics and information warfare. Backed by covert NATO assistance, Ukr...

Dunkirchen 1940: The German View of Dunkirk

Product code:  54377MIL
But what is the German view of this stunning Allied escape. Drawing on German interviews, diaries and unit post-action reports, Robert Kershaw creates a page-turning history of a battle that we thought we knew. Dunkirchen 1940 is the first major history on what went wrong for the Germans at Dunkirk. As supreme military commander, Hitler had seemingly achieved a miracle after the swift capitulation of Holland and Belgium, but with just seven kilometres before the panzers captured Dunkirk - the on...

Red Army Weapons of the Second World War

Product code:  95389MIL
While the Red Army's arsenal at the start of the Second World War included weapons dating back to the Great War or earlier, the 1930s' modernization programme had introduced the automatic Tokarev pistol and self-loading Tokarev rifle. Its small arms were soon replaced by mass-produced sub-machine guns, such as the PPSh 1941. Fitted with a circular pan magazine, it received the not-unsurprising nickname Record Player. New mortars and towed artillery pieces, ranging from 76mm to 203mm, entered ser...

Churchill Tank: Vehicle History and Specification

Product code:  55972MIL
First published in 1983 but out of print for many years, Churchill Tank: Vehicle History and Specification is available again from The Tank Museum. In this book, it lives again as an edited facsimile reprint of the official Service Instruction Book on the Churchill Marks VI and VIll published in 1944. This is the crew’s ‘bible’: it instructs them how to handle and maintain their charge, and in doing so it presents the modern reader with a detailed anatomy of the tank – from driving instructions ...

Image of War: Heydrich Butcher of Prague

Product code:  97567MIL
Reinhard Heydrich along with Heinrich Himmler, whose deputy he was, will always be regarded as one of the most ruthless of the Nazi elite. Even Hitler described him as a man with an iron heart. He established his fearsome reputation in the 1930s, as head of the Sicherheitsdienst, the intelligence organisation which neutralised opposition to the Nazi Party by murder and deportation. He organised Kristalnacht and played a leading role in the Holocaust, chairing the 1942 Wannsee Conference which f...
