  • German E-boats 1939-45by Gordon Williamson; Ian Palmer

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    By the outbreak of World War II, Germany had done much to replace the Kaiser's High Seas Fleet, which was scuttled following their surrender at the end of World War I.

    The development of this excellent and successful class of warship only became possible after the Anglo-German naval agreement of 1935 eased restrictions on the types of ship Germany could build; even then only five of the class were permitted: the Admiral Hipper, the Blücher, the Prinz Eugen, the Seydlitz and the Lützow. These Cruisers were designed... more...

    The German Navy of World War II was small in number, but contained some of the most technologically advanced capital ships in the world.

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 14.95

    Despite the many celebrated victories of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815), the role of the Royal Navy should never be overlooked.
