Mortars in World War II

Mortars in World War II by John NorrisMortars were used throughout the Second World War by all armies and in all theatres. Although a very simple weapon they could greatly enhance the firepower of infantry formations, giving them their own mobile artillery arm. They repeatedly proved their worth in both offensive and defensive situations, breaking up or supporting infantry attacks and laying smoke or illumination rounds. Despite their ubiquity and effectiveness, there have been relatively few works devoted to these important and versatile weapons.

'Total Germany': The Royal Navy' War Against the Axis Powers 1939-1945

'Total Germany': The Royal Navy' War Against the Axis Powers 1939-1945 by David WraggOn the declaration of war in 1939 the British Admiralty signalled all warships and naval bases 'Total Germany, Total Germany'. It was fortunate that of Germany's three armed services, the Kriegsmarine under Grosseradmiral Erich Raeder was the least well prepared. True, Admiral Karl Donitz's U-Boat force was to give the Allies many anxious times but Hitler was never comfortable or competent in his handling of naval surface forces. Total Germany is a concise yet comprehensive account of the Royal Navy's part in the war at sea and the measures taken to ensure victory. The different approaches taken...

Evolution of Airborne Operations 1939-1945

Evolution of Airborne Operations 1939-1945 by Colonel Roy Stanley USAF IIThe development of air transport in the early 20th Century led military strategists to examine the concept of inserting light infantry at key points behind enemy lines by air landing and air drop. The Germans were first off-the-mark with assaults in Norway and at Eben Emael in 1940. Crete saw a larger scale attack but while ultimately victorious the cost of men and equipment involved deterred any further Axis operation. The Allies on the other hand developed the concept dramatically with the large scale operation HUSKY in Sicily. While only partially successful - there was massive loss of life...

In September the invasion of France's southern coast had met less opposition and Allied divisions had begun lining up along the Rhine. But while the Americans were about to meet a nasty surprise in the Ardennes, the Germans never did let go of the province of Alsace, and in a hard pocket around the city of Colmar continued to resist. On New Year's Eve they launched a counteroffensive,...

Military action destroyed homes, businesses, and personal possessions; East European governments expelled 15 million ethnic Germans from their ancestral homes; and currency reform virtually wiped out many Germans' hard-earned savings. These "war damaged" individuals, well over one-third of the West German population, vehemently demanded compensation at the expense of those who had not suffered losses, to be financed through capital levies on surviving private property.

Di Virgilio"No One Avoided Danger" is a detailed combat narrative of the 7 December 1941 Japanese attacks on NAS Kaneohe Bay, one of two naval air stations on the island of O‘ahu. Partly because of Kaneohe??s location—15 air miles over a mountain range from the main site of that day??s infamous attack on Pearl Harbor—military historians have largely ignored the station??s story. Moreover, there is an understandable tendency to focus on the massive destruction sustained by the U.S. Pacific Fleet. The attacks on NAS Kaneohe Bay, however, were equally destructive and no less disastrous, notwithstanding the...

Third Reich Victorious: Alternate Histories of World War II

Third Reich Victorious: Alternate Histories of World War II by Peter G. TsourasThis book is a stimulating and entirely plausible insight into how Hitler and his generals might have defeated the Allies, and a convincing sideways look at the Third Reich's bid at world domination in World War II. What would have happened if, for example, the Germans captured the whole of the BEF at Dunkirk? Or if the RAF had been defeated in the Battle of Britain? What if the U-Boats had strangled Britain with an impregnable blockade, if Rommel had been triumphant in North Africa or the Germans had beaten the Red Army at Kursk? The authors, writing as if these and other world-changing events...

Lone Assassin: The Epic True Story of the Man Who Almost Killed Hilter by Helmut OrtnerLiving as a carpenter who had spent time working in a watch factory, Georg Elser was just an ordinary member of society living in Munich.

The Rise of Germany, 1939-1941: The War in the West, Volume 1 by James HollandFor seven decades, our understanding of World War II has been shaped by a standard narrative built on conventional wisdom, propaganda, the dramatic but narrow experiences of soldiers on the ground, and an early generation of historians. For his new history, James Holland has spent over twelve years unearthing new research, recording original testimony, and visiting battlefields and archives that have never before been so accessible. In The Rise of Germany, the first of a major new three-part history of World War II in the West, he weaves together the experiences of dozens of individuals, from...

Dunkirk 1940: Whereabouts Unknown: How Untrained Troops of the Labour Divisions were Sacrificed to Save an Army by Tim LynchThey called it 'the slaughter of the innocents'. The barely trained and poorly equipped men of the Labour Divisions were never meant to fight but when the German blitzkreig sliced through the Allied armies they were all that stood in the way of the annihilation of the British Expeditionary Force. Paying with their lives they bought precious time as the army fell back towards Dunkird and long after the last of the little ships reached home, the men of the Labour Divisions fought on. Durnkirk 1940: Whereabouts Unknown uses official reports, diaries and personal accounts to tell the story of the...

Church Resistance to Nazism in Norway, 1940-1945 by Arne HassingChurch Resistance to Nazism in Norway, 1940-1945 examines the evolution of the Lutheran state Church of Norway in response to the German occupation.

Arne Hassing moves through the history of the Church of Norway??s relationship to the Nazi state, from its initial confused complicities to its open resistance and separation. He writes engagingly of the people at the center of this struggle and reflects on how the resistance affected the postwar...

You'll Die in Singapore: The True Account of One of the Most Amazong POW Escapes in WWII

You'll Die in Singapore: The True Account of One of the Most Amazong POW Escapes in WWII by Charles McCormacWeakend by hunger, thirst and ill-treatment, author Charles McCormac, then a World War Two prisoner-of-war in Japanese-occupied Singapore, knew that if he did not escape he would die. With sixteen others he broke out of Pasir Panjang camp and began an epic two-thousand-mile escape from the island of Singapore, through the jungles of Indonesia to Australia. With no compass and no map, and only the goodwill of villagers and their own wits to rely on, the British and Australian POWs' escape took a staggering five months and only two out of the original seventeen men survived.

"The Most Dangerous Moment of the War": Japan's Attack on the Indian Ocean, 1942

"The Most Dangerous Moment of the War": Japan's Attack on the Indian Ocean, 1942 by John ClancyIn early April 1942, a little-known episode of World War II took place, said by Sir Winston Churchill to be "the most dangerous moment of the war," when the Japanese made their only major offensive westwards into the Indian Ocean. Historian Sir Arthur Bryant said, "A Japanese naval victory in April 1942 would have given Japan total control of the Indian Ocean, isolated the Middle East and brought down the Churchill government." War in the Far East had erupted with the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, followed in succession by Japanese drives on the Philippines, Indochina, the Java...

Ghost Patrol: A History of the Long Range Desert Group, 1940-1945

Ghost Patrol: A History of the Long Range Desert Group, 1940-1945 by John SadlerThe origins of most of the West's Special Forces can be traced back to the Long Range Desert Group, which operated across the limitless expanses of the Libyan Desert, an area the size of India, during the whole of the Desert War from 1940 to 1943. After the defeat of the Axis in North Africa they adapted to serve in the Mediterranean, the Greek islands, Albania, Yugoslavia and Greece. In the process they became the stuff of legend. The LRDG was the brainchild of Ralph Bagnold, a pre-war desert explorer (featured in fictional terms in The English Patient) who put all of his expertise into the...
