||Jack the Ripper: Quest for a Killer
M J Trow
For a hundred and twenty years, the identity of the Whitechapel murderer known to us as Jack the Ripper has both eluded us and spawned a veritable industry of speculation. This book names him. Mad doctors, Russian lunatics, bungling midwives, railway policemen, failed barristers, weird artists, royal princes and white-eyed men. All of these and more have been put in the frame for the Whitechapel murders. Where ingenious invention and conspiracy theories have failed, common sense has floated out of the window.
||Great Battles of The Hellenistic World|
Pietrykowski analyses the Macedonian art of war from its development under Philip II, perfection under Alexander the Great, and further adaptation under the Successor States. Focussing on twenty battles spanning the era of Macedonian primacy, we see the evolving just the forces, strategies and tactics employed by Hellenistic generals and gain an understanding of their successes and ultimate failures when facing new foes such as the Romans. Clear diagrams make the action easy to follow.
||Sniper in Helmand|
Few soldiers are deemed good enough to be selected and trained as snipers and even fewer qualify. As a result, snipers are regarded as the elite of their units and their skills command the ungrudging respect of their fellows - and the enemy. The Author describes the highs and lows of almost daily front line action experienced by our soldiers deployed on active service in arguably the most dangerous area of the world. His book, the first to be written by a trained sniper in Afghanistan, reveals the psychological pressures and life-and-death responsibility of his role.

||Adventures in My Youth|
A German Soldier on the Eastern Front 1941-45
Armin Scheiderbauer served as an infantry officer with the 252nd Infantry Division, German Army, and saw four years of bitter combat on the Eastern Front, being wounded six times. This is an outstanding personal memoir, written with great thoughtfulness and honesty. Scheiderbauer saw fierce combat in many of the largest battles on the Eastern Front. His experiences of the 1943-45 period are particularly noteworthy, including his recollections of the massive Soviet offensives of summer 1944 and January 1945.
||Twilight of the Gods|
A Swedish Waffen-SS Volunteer's Experiences with the 11th SS-Panzergrenadier Division 'Nordland', Eastern Front 1944-45
Thorolf Hillblad (Editor)
Few new personal accounts by Waffen-SS soldiers appear in English; even fewer originate from the multitude of non-German European volunteers who formed such an important proportion of this service's manpower. Erik Wallin, a Swedish soldier who volunteered for service with the Waffen-SS, and participated in the climactic battles on the Eastern Front during late 1944 and 1945, tells his story to this book's editor, Thorolf Hillblad.
||19 With a Bullet|
A South African Paratrooper in Angola
A fast-moving, action-packed account of Granger Korff’s two years’ service with 1 Parachute Battalion at the height of the South African ‘bush war’ in South West Africa and Angola. Apart from the ‘standard’ counterinsurgency activities of Fireforce operations, he was involved in several massive South African Defence Force conventional cross-border operations. Having grown up as an East Rand rebel street-fighter, Korff’s military ‘career’ is marred with controversy. He was always in trouble—going AWOL on the eve of battle in order to get to the front; fist-fighting with Drug Squad agents; arrested at gunpoint after the Recce selection endurance march—are but some of the colorful anecdotes that lace this account of service in the SADF.

||Letters from Verdun|
Frontline Experiences of an American Volunteer in World War 1 France
Avery Royce Wolfe
Though the United States was late to enter the Great War, a number of idealistic young Americans wished to take part from the beginning. One of these was Avery Royce Wolf, a highly educated scion of a family in America’s burgeoning industrial heartland. Volunteering as an ambulance driver with the French Army in the Verdun sector, Royce sent back a constant stream of highly detailed letters describing the experience of frontline combat, not excluding comments on strategy, the country he encountered, and the Allies’ prospects for success. This treasure trove of brilliant letters, only recently discovered, is accompanied by several albums worth of rare, high-quality photos depicting aspects of the Great War in France never previously published.
||Free France's Lion|
The Life of Philippe Leclerc, de Gaulle’s Greatest General
William Mortimer Moore
But for his early death, many Frenchmen believe Leclerc would have been their greatest figure to emerge from World War II. From the fall of France until 1943, Leclerc dovetailed his operations with the British effort in North Africa, establishing himself as a dynamic combat leader in the battles against Rommel. But once the conflict shifted to European soil he became even more prominent as the commander of the 2nd French Armored Division. His career not only includes the liberation of Paris, for which he is most famous, but the retaking of Strasbourg and the reduction of the Colmar Pocket. By the German surrender in May 1945, Leclerc is one of very few Frenchmen of whom it can be said that he never stopped fighting to regain France's freedom.
