FORGOTTEN HEROES: THE CHARGE OF THE HEAVY BRIGADE

by Roy Dutton

This second 'Forgotten Heroes' title from Roy Dutton covers the charge of the Heavy Brigade at Balaclava on 25th October, 1854, one of the most neglected events in the annals of British military history. Previously unpublished biographies of the men involved bring their stories to life. More than one thousand, three hundred men are listed with over 200 photographs and drawings. Set within an unrelenting and cruel military campaign where many would perish, against all odds the valiant men of the Heavy Brigade attacked a Russian force which outnumbered them five to one.

MOSQUITO: THE WOODEN WONDER

by Edward Bishop 

Spurned in concept by the Air Marshals, designed and built in secrecy and flown out of a farm field, the de Havilland Mosquito became the most successful and versatile military aircraft of the Second World War. Photo-reconnaissance aircraft, day and night fighter, bomber, mine-layer, torpedo-bomber, pathfinder and tank-buster, the Wooden Wonder, powered by two Rolls-Royce Merlin engines, undertook nearly every role. The prototype flew in November 1940 and was soon helping to make aces. It was an aircraft to which fliers who had achieved recognition, aspired.
