    The first major clash between a European and Asian state in the modern era signaled the beginning of Japan's rise as a major power.

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    The Japanese High Command realised that the loss of Okinawa would give the Americans a base for the invasion of Japan.

    The night before D-Day, men of the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, accompanied by a detachment of Royal Engineers, landed in gliders at Benouville in Normandy.

  • The French Foreign Legionby Martin Windrow; Michael Roffe

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    It is arguable that no group of fighting men in the history of European arms has been so misrepresented by ill-informed publicity as the French Foreign Legion. Though initially conceived in 1831 as a means of drafting recently discharged foreign soldiers to Algeria, the Legion has developed into a sophisticated force of motorized infantry, airborne... more...

  • Blue Division Soldier 1941-45by Carlos Caballero Jurado; Ramiro Bujeiro

  • The British Executionby Stephen Banks

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 7.95

    Executions have played a crucial - if grisly and controversial - part in British history and provided the bloody climax to many a life, from Mary, Queen of Scots, Charles I and Dick Turpin to untold thousands of anonymous wretches whose names are now forgotten. With the help of numerous illustrations, Stephen Banks details the history of formal execution... more...

  • Quakersby Peter Furtado

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 7.95

    Though there have never been many Quakers, these small numbers belie the sect's tremendous impact, both historical and contemporary. Quakerism has produced an astonishing and disproportionate number of eminent thinkers, scientists, industrialists and businessmen, who are united not only by their success but by their commitment to philanthropy and... more...
