SHOT IN THE TOWER
by Leonard Sellers

The first reaction to this fascinating account of the spies who were executed in the Tower of London during the First World War is likely to be one of amazement at their ineptitude. Not one of them seems to have had any proper training or any idea of how to set about the job. This, of course raises the intriguing question: how many others were there who did know what they were up to and managed to escape detection? However, thanks to years of dogged research by Len Sellers, the remarkable, but somehow pathetic, stories of the eleven foreign agents who were caught and subsequently shot can now be told.

THE KGB'S POISON FACTORY

The murder was the most notorious crime committed by the Russian intelligence on foreign soil in three decades. The author is a former Russian military intelligence officer.

GERMAN TUNNELS IN GUERNSEY, ALDERNEY AND SARK
by Ernie Gavey and Photographer Steve Powell

Festung Guernsey`s popular publication detailing the extent of the German tunnels constructed in Guernsey, Alderney and Sark during the occupation. The Channel Islands were the only British territory to be occupied by Nazi Germany during the Second World War. What locals refer to as “The Occupation” lasted from June 1940 until the 9th of May 1945. It was a unique experience that has brought the islands more than their fair share of attention from historians and novelists. Solid reminders of the Occupation remain in the form of extensive fortifications constructed to make the islands impregnable.

FORTRESS KENT
by Roy Ingleton

Since the dawn of civilisation, Britain has been menaced by foreign powers and invasive hordes. Situated on the extreme southeastern corner of England, the county of Kent is the nearest point to continental Europe, and has so been the targeted landing point for most of these incursions. From the time of the Angles, Jutes and Saxons to the Second World War, the Men of Kent and Kentish Men have had to set up and maintain defensive structures, from Norman castles to 1940 pill boxes, from the Royal Military Canal to the anti-tank ditches carved out of the hills around the coast. This book is the story of these fortifications.

FORTRESS THIRD REICH
by J. E. & H. W. Kaufmann and Illustrator Robert M. Jurga

The Atlantic Wall is perhaps the most famous of Germany’s World War II fortifications in Europe, but Hitler built many others, from elaborate coastal defences along the English Channel to the nearly impervious lines protecting the German homeland - the massive West Wall and the hurriedly built East Wall. Fortress Third Reich is the first comprehensive treatment of Germany’s World War II fortifications and other defensive systems, including the Reich’s highly feared air defences.

THE FORTS & FORTIFICATIONS OF EUROPE 1815-1945: THE CENTRAL STATES
by J .E. & H. W. Kaufmann

After the Napoleonic Wars the borders of Central Europe were redrawn and relative peace endured across the region, but the volatile politics of the late nineteenth century gave rise to a new era of fortress building. The authors of this extensively illustrated study describe how defensive lines and structures on a massive scale were constructed along national frontiers to deter aggression. The Germans, Austro-Hungarians and Czechs all embarked on ambitious building programmes. Artillery positions, barbed-wire networks, casemates, concrete bunkers, trench lines, observation posts all sprang up in a vain attempt to keep the peace and to delay the invader.
