  • The Kremlin's Nuclear Swordby Steven J. Zaloga

    Smithsonian 2014; US$ 34.95

    The prevailing Western view of Russia’s Cold War strategic nuclear weapons policy is that it resulted from a two-part interplay between the leaders of the Communist Party and the military. Steven J. Zaloga has found that a third contributor—the Russian defense industry—also played a vital role. Drawing from elusive Russian source material and interviews... more...

  • The Atlantic Wall (1)by Steven J Zaloga

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 13.95

    Germany's Atlantic Wall was the most ambitious military fortification program of World War II. With Germany's gradual loss of the strategic initiative to the Allies, in 1942 Hitler was forced to construct an impenetrable wall of fortifications along the Atlantic and Mediterranean coast. This book deals solely with the structures on the French coast,... more...

  • US Tank and Tank Destroyer Battalions in the ETO 1944-45by Steven J Zaloga

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    Overshadowed by the United States Army's armored divisions, the separate tank and tank destroyer battalions had the difficult mission of providing armored support for US infantry divisions in the 1944-45 campaigns.

  • US Airborne Divisions in the ETO 1944-45by Steven J Zaloga

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    The delivery of entire divisions to battlefields behind enemy lines by parachute and glider was a unique feature of World War II, and by the end of the war the US Army deployed the largest airborne force in the world, created in only three years, and boasting such impressive units as the 82nd 'All American' and 101st 'Screaming Eagles'. This book... more...

  • Tanks of Hitler's Eastern Allies 1941-45by Steven J Zaloga

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    The great armor battles of the Eastern Front are widely known, but the role of Germany's eastern allies is not as famous. Two countries, Romania and Hungary, manufactured their own tanks, while others acquired their armor from Germany. These imported vehicles ranged from older, obsolete types such as the PzKpfw 35(t) through to the brand new Tiger... more...

  • Scud Ballistic Missile and Launch Systems 1955-2005by Steven J Zaloga

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    The Scud missile was developed as the centerpiece of Soviet plans to fight nuclear war in the heart of Europe. However, it was never used in its intended role and has instead become a symbol of the changing nature of warfare in the aftermath of the Cold War. Saddam Hussein's Iraqi armed forces were almost helpless in the face of the Coalition forces... more...

  • M3 Lee/Grant Medium Tank 1941-45by Steven J Zaloga

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    The highly successful 'stop-gap' M3 medium tank was designed in 1941, and as adequate turret casting facilities were not yet ready, the M3 used an unusual armament configuration patterned after a French tank. British lend-lease demands led to the design of a second turret type with the US version called the Lee and the British version the Grant. It... more...

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    The M18 76mm Gun Motor Carriage was developed for the US Army's Tank Destroyer Command. It was the only tank destroyer deployed during World War II actually based on their requirements for speed and firepower.

  • V-2 Ballistic Missile 1942-52by Steven J Zaloga

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    The German A-4 ballistic missile, better known by its propaganda name of V-2, was the world's first successful ballistic missile, breaking through the atmosphere to reach its target more quickly.

  • US Armored Units in the North African and Italian Campaigns 1942-45by Steven J Zaloga

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    The Mediterranean Theater of Operations (MTO) saw the first operational deployment of US armoured divisions in World War II, and the experience proved chastening for the 1st Armored Division when it suffered defeat at the hands of Rommel's Afrika Korps at the battle of Kasserine Pass. This book covers the organization of these early US armored divisions,... more...
