PANZERARTILLERIE: FIREPOWER FOR THE PANZER DIVISIONS

by Thomas Anderson 






The Panzerartillerie was one of the key components of the Panzer divisions that were the spearhead of the German forces when they overran most of Western Europe, and reached as far as the gates of Moscow in the East. The Blitzkrieg required fast-moving, mobile artillery that could support units at the front line, and the Panzerartillerie provided that for the Wehrmacht. The Allies had no answer or equivalent to them until the US entry into the war. Drawing on original material, including some images that have never been published before, armour expert Thomas Anderson explores the formation and development of this force from its early days in the 1930s, through the glory days of Blitzkrieg warfare to its eventual decline in the face of the challenges of the Eastern Front.

BRITISH AIRWAYS: ITS HISTORY, AIRCRAFT AND LIVERIES

by Keith Gaskell





Britain's premier airline is now amongst the world's elite. This book summarises the early pioneering days and the nationalised post-war years of British European Airways and the British Overseas Airways Corporation. We then see the joining of these two under the banner of British Airways and follow its early history into successful privatisation and the airline's freedom to pursue new ventures. Every type of aircraft that has been operated by BA is described and the nuances of livery styles are illustrated in colour.

Making this copy unique is a tipped-in, BA internally distributed, landscape format booklet describing the introduction of the new Boeing 747-400 aircraft. There is also a foldout A1 size poster illustrating all BA aircraft from 1919 to 1985.

MARCHING ORDERS

by Bruce Lee

The breaking of the Japanese Purple ciphers. Taken from thousands of declassified Ultra/Magic signals, these are transcripts of signals between Berlin and Tokyo that, with a chronological overlay by the author, demonstrate how the decoding allowed the High Command to understand the strategy and plans of Germany and Japan and influenced the strategic prosecution of the war. Also looks at the duplicity of Laval, the Latin American countries willing to support the Axis and the ceding of Berlin to the Soviets.
