  • A Peripheral Weapon? The Production and Employment of British Tanks in the First World Warby David Childs

    ABC-CLIO 1999; US$ 86.00

    The tank was arguably the most important technological innovation that developed during World War I; however, without the support of the British Army and the allocation of important wartime resources, it would have remained merely a peripheral weapon.

This was not achieved through empire building, conquest, large armies, treaties, marriage alliances, trade or any of the other traditional means of exercising power. Indeed England was successful in few of these.... more...

  • Invading Americaby David Childs

    Pen and Sword 2012; US$ 27.86

    Within a generation of Columbus’s first landfall in the Caribbean, Spain ruled an empire in central and south America many times the size of the home country.

  • Pirate Nationby David Childs

    Pen and Sword 2014; US$ 27.86

    For all the romantic mythology surrounding the court of Queen Elizabeth I, the financial underpinning of the reign of 'Gloriana' was decidedly sordid.
