Cold War, The Cuban Missile Crisis, Thirteen Days on an Atomic Knife Edge, October 1962

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The publisher is achieving great success with this fascinating Cold War series and this volume covers the critical period of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Soviets greatly underestimated the resolve of the US and its allies, consequently suffering a humiliating if bloodless defeat – Very Highly Recommended.

The Great War Illustrated, The Home Front. Seeing It Through: Arras and Passchendale

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The publisher has produced a very large number of ‘centenary books’ to mark the hundred years since the Great War, with this series being an important and popular contribution. Within the series this new book is a worthy addition. The First World War was really the third global conflict, but the first to introduce total industrial carnage – Very Highly Recommended.

Combat Over the Trenches, Oswald Watt, Aviation Pioneer

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Oswald Watts was a true pioneer of aviation and attracted much coverage during his life and after. Not all of this coverage was accurate and a number of myths and misconceptions have appeared. The author has done a very good job of objectively recounting the life and career of Oswald Watts and his text is supported by many well-chosen images through the body of the book – Most Highly Recommended.
