OSPREY CAMPAIGN 27: TEL EL-KEBIR 1882.
                                                     WOLSELEY'S CONQUEST OF EGYPT

by Donald Featherstone 

In 1881, the Egyptian army mutinied against the Khedive of Egypt and forced him to appoint Said Ahmed Arabi as Minister of War. In March 1882, Arabi was made a Pasha and from this time on acted as a dictator. Arabi demanded that the foreigners be driven out of Egypt and called for the massacre of Christians. This prompted an armed British response, first in the form of a naval bombardment of Alexandria, and then as an expeditionary force under Lieutenant-General Wolseley. This book explores the entire campaign.

'FLAK' HOUSES THEN AND NOW

by Keith Thomas


'Flak' Houses were the rest homes set up in England during the Second World War by the American Red Cross to provide centres of rest and recuperation for combatweary airmen. These were usually situated in large country houses where flyers were permitted to wear civilian clothes and partake in a variety of sporting and recreational activities. Some 87,000 men passed through the R&R system before it was disbanded in 1945. Keith Thomas covers the history of more than 20 Flak Houses in Britain. All are illustrated with 'then and now' comparison photos.
