Hitler’s Forgotten Flotillas, Kriegsmarine Security Forces

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The minor warships in any navy play a very important part in naval warfare but often receive very little attention from historians. This new book provides a detailed view of the Kreigsmarine Security Forces in WWII with many previously unpublished images. It is an important addition to the pool of knowledge and the first substantial review of German naval security forces – Very Highly Recommended.

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This is a revised edition of the outstanding and most complete account of cryptography and the Enigma machine. There have been claims that the work of code breakers shortened the war by two years, but it can be argued that it first avoided defeat and then made victory possible – Most Highly Recommended.

Secret Naval Investigator, The Battle Against Hitler’s Secret Underwater Weapons

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author died in 1989, aged 90, but fortunately he took the time to write this enthralling account of one of the least told important stories of WWII. The Royal Navy attracted a wide range of very different individuals to the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve in the months before the outbreak of WWII. The author was a barrister who became a specialist in investigating German underwater weapons and neutralizing them – Very Highly Recommended.
