    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 15.95

    The submachine gun (SMG) came to be the embodiment of the Soviet fighting spirit during World War II.

  • U-47 in Scapa Flowby Angus Konstam; Peter Dennis; Alan Gilliland

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2015; US$ 11.99

    At the outset of World War II, Scapa Flow was supposed to be the safe home base of the British Navy – nothing could penetrate the defences of this bastion. So how, in the dead of night, was Gunther Prien's U-47 able to slip through the line of protective warships to sink the mighty Royal Oak? This book provides the answer with an account of one of... more...

  • The Sten Gunby Leroy Thompson; Mark Stacey; Alan Gilliland

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2012; US$ 15.16

    The Sten submachine gun – officially the 'Carbine, Machine, Sten' – was developed to fulfill the pressing British need for large quantities of cheaply produced weapons after Dunkirk, when German invasion was a very real possibility.

  • The M1 Garandby Leroy Thompson; Peter Dennis; Alan Gilliland

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2012; US$ 12.99

    The M1 Garand gave the US infantryman a marked edge during World War II. It shot faster and further than enemy infantry rifles and hit harder.

At a time when opposing forces were armed with bolt-action rifles, US... more...
