THE DOCTOR'S PLOT: STALIN'S LAST CRIME

by Yakov Rapoport

On January 13, 1953, the official Soviet press agency Tass announced the arrest of a group of ‘killer doctors’ who were systematically doing away with prominent public figures in the Soviet Union. Nine doctors, six of them Jews, were cited, and in the next few weeks many more were carted off to the dread prisons of Lubyanka and Lefortovo. Among them was Yakov Lvovich Rapoport, a distinguished pathologist. This book is a firsthand memoir of his imprisonment, revealing not only the suffering caused by a fabricated ‘plot’ but also the devastating climate of antisemitism and the appalling disarray of medicine and science in the Stalinist era.

YANGTZE SHOWDOWN

by Brian Izzard

 

China and the Ordeal of HMS Amethyst. The attack on the British frigate on the Yangtze River by Chinese Communists in 1949 made world headlines. When she made a dramatic escape after being trapped for 101 days, the incident was eulogised as an example of outstanding courage and fortitude. The 'Yangtze Incident' was made into a feature film, which depicted the ship and her crew as innocent victims of Communist aggression. British Government files have now been released and in making use of these, the book tells an intriguing tale of intelligence failure and military over-confidence.

THE BATTLE OF BORODINO: NAPOLEON AGAINST KUTUZOV

by Alexander Mikaberidze 


On 7th September, 1812 at Borodino, 75 miles west of Moscow, the armies of the Russian and French empires clashed in one of the climactic battles of the Napoleonic Wars. The survival of the Russian army after Borodino was a key factor in Napoleon's eventual defeat and the utter destruction of the French army of 1812. This new study retells the terrible story of Borodino seen from the Russian point of view, providing a fresh perspective on the battle and a broader understanding of the reasons for the eventual Russian triumph.
