Send More Shrouds, The V1 Attack on the Guards’ Chapel 1944

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Grateful for the sub-title that makes clear this has nothing to do with shroud waving Comrade Corbyn cynically jumping on any passing bandwagon. At the point of the war where the Allies could scent victory over Germany, the V1 began arriving over London. This is a graphic account of the most deadly V1 attack of WWII. Aerial bombing is never a pretty sight, but the use of crude unmanned flying bombs removes all pretence of deliberately targeting military sites. – Highly Recommended.

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Amongst a handful of battles that mark the rise of England into Britain and on to found the British Empire, Agincour stands out was a battle where a tired ragged army, significantly smaller than the fresh French Army, turned and fought and won magnificently. – Highly Recommended.
