This is a story told in photographs and they form an outstanding selection, but there is also some excellent text, concise, and well-researched. – With the advent of a new film about Dunkirk, this is a good opportunity to produce an accurately researched account in print, with lavish illustration – Most Highly Recommended.
The author’s father was one of the many casualties, killed when the ship sank. – This is a long-overdue review of the events that led to the loss of HMS Gloucester, from the launching in 1937 to the sinking in 1941 – Highly Recommended.
The most complete study of the naval war between Christians and Muslims in the Mediterranean. – A welcome translation of the masterly study of the rise of the Barbary corsairs by a professor at the Sorbonne – Highly Recommended.
