  • "Execute against Japan"by Joel Ira Holwitt

    Texas A&M University Press 2009; US$ 37.50

    ? . . . until now how the Navy managed to instantaneously move from the overt legal restrictions of the naval arms treaties that bound submarines to the cruiser rules of the eighteenth century to a declaration of unrestricted submarine warfare against Japan immediately after the attack on Pearl Harbor has never been explained. Lieutenant Holwitt... more...

  • 'For Their Own Good'by Julia S. Torrie

    Berghahn Books 2010; US$ 34.95

    The early twentieth-century advent of aerial bombing made successful evacuations essential to any war effort, but ordinary people resented them deeply. Based on extensive archival research in Germany and France, this is the first broad, comparative study of civilian evacuations in Germany and France during World War II. The evidence uncovered exposes... more...

  • "Madagaskar für die Juden"by Magnus Brechtken

    De Gruyter 1998; US$ 108.82

    Die traditionelle Judenfeindschaft wandelte sich in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts zu einem rassistisch geprägten Antisemitismus. Seine Propagandisten fühlten sich zur "Lösung der Judenfrage" berufen. 1885 wurde die Idee geboren, Madagaskar zur Heimstätte aller Juden der Welt zu machen. So grotesk diese Vorstellung einer "territorialen... more...

  • 'Our Glorious Past'by David Marples

  • 'Unsinkable'by Richard Freeman

    The History Press 2013; US$ 15.99

    ?Unsinkable? is the story of a man unjustly vilified: Churchill in the First World. His enemies ? the Tory party ? censured him for Antwerp, the Dardanelles and Gallipoli. He could do no right and was regarded as a dangerous maniac. But the true story is quite the opposite. This book tells how, as a brilliant First Sea Lord, Churchill was ousted by... more...

  • ‘Sink The French!’by DAvid Wragg

    Pen and Sword 2007; US$ 5.99

    The victorious German Blitzkrieg assault on Holland, Belgium and Northern France placed Anglo-French relations under huge strain.
