THE FUTURE OF TERRORISM

by Walter Laqueur & Christopher Wall
 

ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and the Alt-Right. An expert on terrorism and an expert on counterterrorism answer the two questions everyone is asking about the rise of terrorism today: why is this happening, and when will it end? Since the death of bin Laden in 2011, ISIS has risen, al-Qaeda has expanded it’s reach, and right-wing extremists have surged in the United States for the same simple reason: terrorism works. It is not caused by psychosis or irrationality, as the media often suggests. Instead, it’s terrifyingly logical. Violent acts produce political results. The authors explore the history, rationales and precepts of terrorism, from the assassination of Tsar Alexander II, through the terror campaigns by Irish and Indian nationalists, and to the Nazis and Italian Fascists. They show how the American invasion of Iraq created the conditions for the emergence of al-Qaeda in Iraq, part of which metastasized into ISIS, while Russia’s increasing intervention in Syria allowed both of these organizations to evolve.

TANKART 1

 by Michael Rinaldi & Lester Plaskitt 

This new third edition of TANKART 1 on modelling German Armor has been expanded to include two additional models. The original five models (Befehls Panther G, Tiger I Initial, Sd.Kfz 251/22 Pakwagen, Hetzer, and Panzer IV DAK) are presented in a refined graphic layout. Guest author, Lester Plaskitt's, world class Sd.Kfz 251/21 is expanded to match the style of the other chapters, including detailed captions explaining his impressive painting and modelling skills. Newly added are two exciting models. The first is a winterized 10.5cm Sturmhaubitze 42, and the second is the famous Panzer IV with 88mm Flak Gun. This model was built after photos surfaced of this unique field-modified vehicle. The chapters on modelling techniques have been edited and updated including the Hair Spray Technique, Oil Paint Rendering and other Techniques.

WARPAINT NO. 53: AVRO ANSON

by Alan W. Hall

Although the Anson was a front-line aircraft early in the war, flying coastal reconaissence, anti-submarine operations, and support over Dunkirk, it was soon obsolescent. Slow, short-legged, and woefully underarmed, it was soon replaced by the Lockheed Hudson and other aircraft. However, the performance and configuration of the aircraft made it ideal for flight, navigation, gunnery, and wireless training, communications, air-sea rescue, and utility roles. The Anson went through many marks, with over 10,000 aircraft produced in a production span of 18 years and service life of over 32 years.
