MILITARY IDENTITIES

by David French





The Regimental System, the British Army, and the British People c.1870-2000. The regimental system has been the foundation of the British army for three hundred years. This iconoclastic study shows how it was refashioned in the late nineteenth century, and how it was subsequently and repeatedly reinvented to suit the changing roles that were forced upon the army. Based upon a combination of official and private papers, personal reminiscences, and upon research in the National Archives, regimental museums and collections, this book challenges the assumptions of both the exponents and detractors of the system.

OSPREY NEW VANGUARD 255: T-90 STANDARD TANK,
                                                    THE FIRST TANK OF THE NEW RUSSIA

by Steven J. Zaloga. Illustrated by Felipe Rodriguez 

In the wake of the T-72 tank's poor performance in the 1991 Gulf War, the Kremlin instructed the tank industry to drop the discredited T-72 designation in favour of the T-90 Vladimir. The T-90 was in fact a further evolution of the T-72 family, but the name change represented an important break in Russian/Soviet tank design history. The T-90 has become the principal export tank of Russia, and is in service in large numbers in many countries including Algeria, India, and many of the former Soviet republics. Using detailed illustrations and full colour artwork, this book describes the evolution of the T-90's many failed successors including the little known Bokser, Molot, and T-95, as well as its likely successor, the new T-14 Armata, and the wide range of specialized vehicles based on the T-90 chassis such as the formidable Terminator tank support vehicle.

A HISTORY OF THE MEDITERRANEAN AIR WAR, 1940-1945:
               VOLUME ONE. NORTH AFRICA JUNE 1940-JANUARY 1942

by Christopher Shores & Giovanni Massimello 

Following on from Christopher Shores original work, 'Fighters over the Desert', this is the first volume of a seminal series covering all aspects of aerial operations throughout the whole of the Mediterranean area. Operations directly over the main battlefronts are dealt with on a daily basis, however, to allow a clearer view to be obtained of operations elsewhere in the theatre, separate chapters deal specifically with night bombers, the air defence of the base areas, and naval co-operation activities. Numerous tables and a considerable number of photographs are included in this comprehensive and definitive book which is co-authored by Russell Guest.

A very good, used copy.
