  • Iwoby Richard Wheeler

    Naval Institute Press 2014; US$ 18.95

  • The Secrets of the Anzacs: the untold story of venereal disease in the Australian army, 1914 - 1919by Raden Dunbar

    Scribe Publications 2014;

    Here is a truly astonishing statistic: during World War I, about 60,000 soldiers in the Australian army were treated by army doctors in Egypt, Europe, and Australia for venereal diseases ? almost the same number of diggers who were killed during the war. This silent, secret scourge took hold in Cairo in 1914, and continued until 1919 when survivors... more...

    Whether it's a mighty battle between ancient gods, the Second Coming of a Biblical saviour, or a pesky Millennial computer virus, we've always wondered how the world would end. And whether we'd be (un)lucky enough to see it. This book explores some of the theories about the end of days, looking from religion to science and everything in between. Some... more...

  • The Spearheadersby James J. Altieri; Mir Bahmanyar

    Naval Institute Press 2014; US$ 24.95

    The outlook for a victory of the Allied Powers was dim in the spring of 1942. Britain was being unmercifully bombed and threatened with invasion. Rommel's forces were rampaging across North Africa toward Alexandria. Only two American divisions had arrived in the European theatre. Stationed in Ireland, they were green, untested troops, their combat... more...

  • Kokoda Air Strikesby Anthony Cooper

    University of New South Wales Press 2014; US$ 24.99

    The author of the bestselling Darwin Spitfires casts a forensic eye over the role that Allied air forces played ?or failed to play?in crucial World War II campaigns in New Guinea.

  • Virginia in the War Years, 1938-1945by Joseph P. Freitus

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 39.95

    Although World War II began as a war in Europe, many in the United States, foreseeing the inevitable, had begun preparing for war, paying only "lip service" to the Neutrality Act. Preparations for war, essentially ending the Great Depression, affected the entire country, with Virginia particularly playing a major role. More than one million... more...
