The planned invasion of the British Isles by Germany in 1940 has been much argued over the years but this book makes a convincing set of arguments based on careful research. Hitler certainly blinked first but what is less certain is whether he ever seriously expected to have to launch an invasion against a hostile British coastline – Strongly Recommended
The Cold War saw many Hot Wars as the Soviets and the US fought each other through surrogates. This series is turning into a highly successful and informative series with this new addition, expanding the important coverage of a unique war between nuclear armed opponents and their Allies – Highly Recommended
The descriptive text is supported by many images through the body of the text. The author has described the Roman Catholic terror visited on England by Henry VIII’s eldest daughter – Highly Recommended
This is a very informative book that is nicely written in the narrative style and a delight to read. The story of Sparta has fascinated generations and the least well covered part of the story is the fall of Sparta – Highly Recommended
The publisher has been developing a formidable list of transport titles with steam locomotives and railways impressively covered. The British practice of naming locomotives has seen many subjects reflected in the naming, with military connections well to the fore – Strongly Recommended
This is the final volume in a set of five outstanding photo essays of the Great War. The quality of the images is outstanding, mostly in monochrome but including colour images. This is a unique and valuable series as 100th anniversary books – Very Highly Recommended
