  • Rüstung und politisches Systemby Peter Szarafinski

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 29.07

    Kein Land hatte sich so intensiv auf den Zweiten Weltkrieg vorbereitet wie das Dritte Reich. Trotzdem war seine Luftrüstung gekennzeichnet von unrealistischer Planung und fehlendem Verständnis für produktionstechnische Zusammenhänge. Auf der anderen Seite waren die USA durch ihren Isolationismus und ihre demokratischen Entscheidungsprozesse gebremst.... more...

  • York in the Great Warby Karyn Burnham

    Pen and Sword 2014; US$ 10.99

    The Great War touched every single town and city in Britain, barely a community escaped unscathed and the city of York was no different. Despite a long and tumultuous history, the seemingly brief period between 1914 and 1918 left as indelible a mark on York and its people as any period in the preceding millennium. Karyn Burnham explores what everyday... more...

  • Coventry in the Great Warby Leonard Markham

    During World War One, the city of Coventry was a powerhouse that kept the barrels loaded and the engines of war purring.

  • Chester in the Great Warby Susan Chambers

    Pen and Sword 2014; US$ 9.99

    At the outbreak of the Great War, Chester was transformed from a county market town with some nice shops and lots of day-trippers, to a bustling, frantically busy military centre with men and horses everywhere. As they left for the war zones, or to go to other parts of the country for training, the city settled down to the hard work of dealing with... more...

  • Orde Wingateby Simon Anglim

    Pen and Sword 2014; US$ 12.99

    Winston Churchill described Wingate as a ‘man of genius who might well have become a man of destiny’. Tragically, he died in an jungle aircraft crash in 1944. Like his famous kinsman Lawrence of Arabia, Wingate was renowned for being an unorthodox soldier, inclined to reject received patterns of military thought. He was a fundamentalist Christian... more...

  • The Royal Navy and the War at Sea 1914-1919by Martin Mace

    Pen and Sword 2014; US$ 14.99

    Germany's attempts to build a battleship fleet to match that of the United Kingdom, the dominant naval power on the 19th-century and an island country that depended on seaborne trade for survival, is often listed as a major reason for the enmity between those two countries that led to the outbreak of war in 1914. 

Indeed, German leaders... more...

  • British Pirates and Society, 1680-1730by Margarette Lincoln

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 124.95

    Pirates contributed to the British understanding of trans-oceanic navigation, patterns of trade and remote communities. This knowledge advanced imperial expansion, which helps to explain why contemporary attitudes towards piracy were ambivalent. This book, an engaging study of vested interests and conflicting ideologies, shows how pirates were portrayed... more...
