  • US Navy Ships vs Kamikazes 1944?45by Mark Stille; Jim Laurier

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2016; US$ 11.99

    The ineffectiveness of conventional air attacks on US Navy surface ships, particularly heavily defended targets like carrier task groups, forced the Japanese to re-evaluate their tactics in late 1944.

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2016; US$ 8.99

    In the 1950s and 1960s, luxury car buyers, from government ministers to captains of industry, almost invariably bought British.
