Vehicles captured around Dunkirk, in France, Belgium,
Greece, North Africa, and with the Afrikakorps. Without
these trucks the German war machine would have been much
less capable of waging Blitzkrieg against the Soviet Union
from 1941. While Operation Dynamo, the evacuation from
Dunkirk in May and June 1940, made possible the escape of
more than 300,000 French and British soldiers, they had to
leave all their heavy equipment behind. The BEF lost around
65,000 vehicles, many of which returned to military service
on the German side and served on the Eastern Front. Other
sources for the German Wehrmacht to lay its hands on British
trucks to supplement its own forces were Operation Demon in
April 1941, the British evacuation from Greece, and the
campaign in North Africa from February 1941 to June 1943.
THE HIDDEN NAZI: THE UNTOLD STORY OF
AMERICA'S DEAL WITH THE DEVIL
by Dean Reuter
Sidekick to SS Chief Heinrich
Himmler and supervisor of Nazi rocket scientist Wernher von
Braun, General Hans Kammler was responsible for the
construction of Hitler’s slave labor sites and
concentration camps. He personally altered the design of
Auschwitz to increase crowding, ensuring that epidemic
diseases would complement the work of the gas chambers.
Kammler was declared dead after the war. But the aide who
testified to Kammler’s supposed "suicide"
never produced any proof of his death. The author's
astonishingly discovered US government documents proving
that Hans Kammler was in American custody for months after
the war − well after his officially declared suicide.
Was he protected so the United States could benefit from his
intimate knowledge of the Nazi's secret weapons? The book is
co-authored by Colm Lowery and Keith Chester.
Life in a Cold War Canberra
Squadron - 'A Bucket of Sunshine' was the term used for the
use of a nuclear bomb. This is a firsthand insight into life
in the mid-1960s on a RAF Canberra nuclear-armed squadron in
West Germany. Mike Brookes describes not only the technical
aspect of the aircraft and its nuclear and conventional
roles and weapons, but also the low-level flying that went
with the job of being ready to go to war at less than three
minutes notice. Brooke tells his story warts and all, with
many amusing overtones, in what was an extremely serious
business when the world was standing on the brink of nuclear
