THE D-DAY EXPERIENCE FROM THE INVASION
                                                          TO THE LIBERATION OF PARIS

 by Richard Holmes





The largest amphibious invasion in history took place on 6 June 1944. The subsequent battle of Normandy involved over a million men, and helped seal the fate of The Third Reich. This is a graphic account of the planning and execution of Operation Overlord, as well as the campaign which effectively destroyed the German forces in France, opening the way for the Allied advance. Including a wealth of superb photographs and maps, the book also contains 30 facsimile items of rare memorabilia, including diaries, letters and memos, as well as an audio CD containing 26 tracks of veteran interviews, bringing this 'Day of Days' dramatically to life.

Very good in illustrated boards in slightly grazed slipcase - large format, 64pp, photographs, maps, enclosures, CD

WORLD WAR ONE AIRCRAFT CARRIER PIONEER

by Guy Warner

Jack McCleery, born in Belfast in 1898, joined the RNAS in 1916 as a Probationary Flight Officer. During the next ten months he completed his training, gaining his wings as a Sub-Lieutenant. In July 1917 he was posted to the new aircraft carrier HMS Furious, which would be based at Scapa Flow and Rosyth. He served in this ship until February 1919, flying Short 184 seaplanes and then Sopwith 1½ Strutters, also flying other types from various shore stations. He witnessed the world’s first carrier strike mission, the 1918 Tondern raid, and took part in more than a dozen sweeps into the North Sea and reconnaissance missions off the coast of Denmark.

U-BOAT ASSAULT ON AMERICA

by Ken Brown

An account of the phase of the battle of the Atlantic when U-boats attacked both merchant and US naval vessels along the American East Coat with impunity and inflicted massive losses. With tankers burning and petrol rationing in New York City, the US Navy seemed powerless to stop the marauding U-boats. This new book seeks to explain how America responded to these assaults and looks at the steps that the Navy took to train the men, harness the scientists and make the organisational changes needed to defeat the German threat. As well as looking at the ships and men who fought the battles, the author explains the significance of the port of New York, its vulnerability to sabotage, and the relationship between the US Navy and the New York Mafia.
