The GameChangers Series

The GameChangers Series

by BigJules

I’ve always been fascinated by pivotal points in history; events and discoveries in the past that have shaped our modern world – and it’s been a most enjoyable diversion from my Kydd Series (which I am certainly continuing with, as well…) to write the first two books in GameChangers Series, The Silk Tree and The Powder of Death. They are both standalone novels, but connected by the fact that they deal with major milestones in history that have shaped our modern world.

Russian Eyewitness Accounts of the Campaign of 1807

B2272

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This carefully edited collection of eyewitness accounts of the battles between the French and the Russians provides a balanced view but much of the information will be new to English-language readers. There is a fine monochrome photo-plate section which adds greatly to the content, graphically demonstrating the terrible conditions under which many battles were fought. Recommended.

Churchill’s Navy, The Ships People and Organization 1939-1945

B2334

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author is now so firmly established as a prolific writer of naval subjects that each new book tends to be compared to his previous work rather than to current and past authors. Once again, he has produced an authoritative work that is both concise and comprehensive. The work is lavishly illustrated and will stand for many years as the definitive work on the subject. Highly Recommended.
