    Conventional wisdom suggests that the Allies and the Soviets were the only side in the Second World War to support resistance movements.

  • Companion to the British Army 1939-45by George Forty

    The History Press 2009; US$ 11.99

    To encapsulate the British Army in one book is no easy task, but here, George Forty presents it as it was during the Second World War. When war was declared in 1939, the British Army was very much the 'Cinderella' of the three armed services, with a total strength of around 865,000 men. However, just four years later when the Allies invaded north-west... more...
