"Go to It!"
The Illustrated History of the 6th Airbourne Division
Peter Harclerode
Caxton Editions (2000)
Summary: On 23rd April 1943, the War Office laid down a phased programme for the formation of what was to become one of the most renowned divisions in the history of airborne forces: the 6th Airborne. Based on a wide variety of sources, including eyewitness accounts by former members of the division, this superbly and profusely illustrated volume covers in detail the history of this remarkable force and the equally remarkable men who served in it. The 6th Airborne Division was one of the most famous fighting formations of the British Army. Go To It is the gripping account of a story which has not been told - until now.

The Malta Squadron
Anthony Rogers
Spellmount (2005)
Summary: Featuring the diary entries of the airmen involved, a unique account of the epic battle for Malta as experienced by fighter pilots of Number 185 Squadron. In 1943, after helping to win the air war over Malta, the unit took part in the Allied invasions of Sicily and Italy taking the fight to the enemy by bombing and strafing targets in support of Allied ground forces. Including rare combat and intelligence reports, Anthony Rogers provides the reader with a clear understanding of the war in the air. Life in Malta's longest-serving fighter squadron is narrated as an often humorous and sometimes poignant tale - all the more so with the knowledge that some contributors never survived the war.

1914-1918
The History of the First World War
David Stevenson
Penguin UK (2 September 2004)
Summary: In the summer of 1914 Europe exploded into a frenzy of mass violence. The war that followed had global repercussions, destroying four empires and costing millions of lives. Even the victorious countries were scarred for a generation, and we still today remain within the conflict's shadow. In this major new analysis, published some ninety years after the First World War began, David Stevenson re-examines the causes, course and impact of this 'war to end war', placing it in the context of its era and exposing its underlying dynamics. His book provides a wide-ranging international history, drawing on insights from the latest research. It offers compelling answers to the key questions about how this terrible struggle unfolded: questions that remain disturbingly relevant for our own time.

The Death of Innocence
Lyn Macdonald
Headline (1993)
Summary: Amidst shattered hopes, disillusionment and grim resolve, this recounting of the year 1915 during World War I is the story of the British Army and their journey from optimism to "carnage incomparable and human squander." Brutal, frank, sometimes painfully funny, and always human, this is the result of 20 years of research which includes many first-hand accounts: diaries, letters, and interviews with survivors. From the battlefileds of Neuve Chapelle, Ypres, Loos, the Shores of Gallipoli and the Flanders swamps all is told from the viewpoint of the men themselves to form a mix of compelling military history and poignant memories.

1918
A Very British Victory
Peter Hart
Orion Publishing Group, Limited (2009)
Summary: The story of the huge mobile battles of 1918, which finally ended the Great War. 1918 was the critical year of battle as the Great War reached its brutal climax. Warfare of an epic scale was fought on the Western Front, where ordinary British soldiers faced the final test of their training, tactics and determination. That they withstood the storm and began an astonishing counterattack, is proof that by 1918, the British army was the most effective fighting force in the world. But this ultimate victory came at devastating cost. Using a wealth of previously unpublished material, historian Peter Hart gives a vivid account of this last year of conflict - what it was like to fight on the frontline, through the words of the men who were there. In a chronicle of unparalleled scope and depth, he brings to life the suspense, turmoil and tragedy of 1918's vast offensives.

A Corner of a Foreign Field
The Illustrated Poetry of the First World War
Fiona Waters
Transatlantic Press (2007)
Summary: "Represented here are poems dashed off in the full awfulness of the battlefield, as well as those honed with the terrible benefit of hindsight. And there are poems from an earlier age whose themes and aching beauty exactly matched the mood of a nation as an entire generation was lost to war. Here also are poems inspired by the experience of countless mothers, wives, sweethearts, sisters, and daughters left behind ... The poems are counterpointed by painstakingly restored photographic images-- many seen here for the first time-- which show relentlessly cheerful faces, smiling in the face of darkest adversity. You see comradeship of the most truthful kind. Taken from the unique archives of the Daily Mail, the images capture the small moments of un-named individual people in the cataclysmic catastrophe that was branded 'the war to end all wars'--Dust jacket.

A View from the Turret
A History of the 3rd Royal Tank Regiment in the Second World War
Bill Close
Dell & Bredon (1998)
Summary: This is the story of the exploits of the 3rd Battalion Royal Tank Regiment during World War II as seen through the eyes of one of its most experienced tank commanders. Its baptism of fire came in 1940 during the heroic defence of Calais where all its tanks and vehicles were lost. In November 1940, the battalion was sent to North Africa and figured in most of the desert battles. In early 1941 the battalion was withdrawn from the line and sent to Greece where its tanks were finally neither strong enough or numerous enough to stop the onslaught on the German divisions. All its tanks and vehicles were again lost, and only some 200 officers and men of the battalion eventually landed back in Egypt, after various adventures. The battalion played a considerable part in the bloody fighting at Sidi Resegh. It took part in the famous Left Hook battle with the New Zealanders, making a considerable contribution to the success of the battle and subsequent forcing of the Gabes Gap in the Mareth line, and the entry into Tripoli. The battalion played its part in the El Alamein battle, once again receiving heavy casualties, but went on with success at Alam Halfa and Gazala and the final advance to

A Walk Round Plugstreet
South Ypres Sector, 1914-1918
Tony Spagnoly, Ted Smith
Leo Cooper (1997)
Summary: A book highlighting the multitude of little-known actions, places of interest and the activities of the men who served in this area where most regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies saw service during the Great War. Although much has been written of the Ploegsteert (Plugstreet to the troops) links with Bruce Bairnsfather's 'Old Bill' and Winston Churchill plus its position on the southern slopes of the shoulder of the Messines Ridge, little has been documented of its importance during the earlier and mid-stages of the war. Generally spoken of as a quiet area, Plugstreet saw some of the most brutal and bitterly fought actions during the early years of the war.

A Withering Fire
American Machine Gun Battalions in World War I
George T. Raach
Booklocker.com, Incorporated (10 December 2015)
Summary: A Withering Fire is the definitive history of American machine gun battalions in World War I. It describes the creation of these battalions, their training, equipment, and combat employment through official documents and firsthand accounts of the men who served in these units. When the U.S. entered the war in April 1917 it had fewer than 450 machine guns, all of them obsolete, and no machine gun units larger than a platoon. In less than 17 months, the country produced nearly 50,000 modern machine guns, and the Army organized almost 200 proficient machine gun battalions. Their fire was a major force in combat. Machine gunners comprised only about 12 percent of an infantry division's strength, but delivered more than 65 percent of its fire power. A single machine gun was considered the equivalent of at least 100 riflemen. Realizing the value of machine guns somewhat belatedly, the Army demanded what it called scientific machine gunnery, and required its gunners to deliver accurate, sustained fire at long range not only on targets they could see, but also on those that were hidden by terrain or weather. To accomplish these missions and survive, machine gunners had to be part technician, part tactician, and part mathematician. Training was intensive, firing techniques were sophisticated, guns and equipment were complex, and employment in combat was commonplace and dangerous. In defenses, machine guns created belts of fire hundreds of yards long and more than 50 yards wide. In support of attacks they delivered preparatory barrages of hundreds of thousands of rounds. Missions often required gunners to operate in isolation from the infantry they supported, and they were frequently obliged to hold their ground even when infantry were withdrawn. Their bravery and ability to deliver effective machine gun fire not only helped infantry accomplish their missions. It saved countless doughboy lives. The role of American machine gunners on the Western Front is often misunderstood today. No comprehensive studies of machine gun tactics have been conducted in nearly 80 years, and gunner contributions have been obscured by time. In order to appreciate how doughboys actually fought in France, one must understand the American machine gunner's influence on the battlefield. A Withering Fire provides this information.

Aces Falling
war above the trenches, 1918
Peter Hart
Orion Publishing Group (2 October 2008)
Summary: How the age of the great WWI aces came to an end in the skies over the Western FrontAt the beginning of 1918 the great aces seemed invincible. Flying above the battlefields of the Western Front, they cut a deadly swathe through the ranks of their enemies, as each side struggled to keep control of the air. Some were little more than boys when they started to fly, yet they were respected and feared as some of the deadliest killers in the sky. But as the press of fighting increased with the great offensives of 1918, nervous stress and physical exhaustion finally began to take their toll - and one by one the aces began to fall.This book charts the rise and fall of the WWI aces in the context of the vast battles that were taking place in 1918. It shows the vital importance of reconnaissance, and how large formations of aircraft became the norm - bringing an end to the era of the old, heroic 'lone wolves'. As the First World War came to a close very few of the aces survived. This epic history of the final year of the air war is both a chronicle of the ways in which 1918 changed aerial combat forever, and a requiem for the pioneers of aerial combat who eventually became the victims of their own brilliant innovations.

AFFAIR AT NERY.
1 September 1914
PATRICK TAKLE
PEN & SWORD (28 March 2007)
Summary: Early on 1 September 1914, the Germans surprised 1st Cavalry Brigade harboring in the little town of Néry. Their initial bombardment caused chaos and destruction and the British took time to organize themselves. The actions of two batteries of the Royal Horse Artillery were eventually so successful that even today there is a battery known as Néry Battery RHA. The Queen’s Bay’s a cavalry regiment, charged in classic style and the Germans, who mistakenly thought they were out numbered, withdrew with heavy casualties.

Of the three VCs, two were posthumous.

While a small engagement by later Great War standards, Néry is a classic case study of an artillery duel and cavalry action.

Airborne Armour
Tetrarch, Locust, Hamilcar and the 6th Airborne Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment, 1938-50
Keith Flint
Helion (2004)
Summary: Despite all the works on airborne forces published since 1945, the full story of Britain's 'airborne armour' has remained untold. This book is intended to correct that omission. The story has two main strands - the project to fly tanks onto the battlefield to support airborne forces, and the history of the unit which operated those tanks and supported 6th Airborne Division in the ground role - the 6th Airborne Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment. The book is the result of considerable original research and contact with surviving members of 6th AARR. It contains the full development background of both airborne tanks, the British Tetrarch and American Locust, and also that of the Hamilcar glider. It examines rival or complimentary projects, in particular the German Me 321 Gigant glider, and analyses the extent to which the British airborne armour project was a success. The history of 6th AARR is traced back to the little known Special Service Squadrons of the RAC which were pioneers of armoured amphibious assault, and who saw action in the invasion of Madagascar in 1942. One of these squadrons became the Airborne Light Tank Squadron, which grew into the Airborne Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment in time for D-Day. This unit flew 20 Tetrarch tanks into battle on the evening of D-Day in the first ever assault landing of tanks from the air, and did the same 10 months later when 8 Locust tanks were landed as part of the massive Rhine crossing operation. 6th AARR also had a proud history in ground combat in Normandy, the Ardennes, and Germany, often forming the spearhead for the advance of 6th Airborne Division. The unit has a fair claim to be the 'forgotten regiment' of British airborne forces, a fate which this book aims to put right. Airborne Armour describes and analyses a unique unit of the British army and some unique military operations.

Alamein to Zem Zem
Keith Douglas
Faber & Faber (4 June 2009)
Summary: A classic war book by one of the finest poets of the Second World War. Keith Douglas was posted to Palestine in 1941 with a cavalry regiment. When fighting broke out at El Alamein in 1942, he was instructed to stay behind as a staff officer. But he wanted to fight, and so, completely disobeying orders, he drove a truck to the sight of the battle and participated as a tank commander. Alamein to Zem Zem is a vivid and unforgettable description of his experiences on the desert battlefield, seen through the eyes of a poet-soldier. 'Highly charged, violent descriptive prose ... conveys the humour, the pathos and the literal beauty of that dead world of tanks, sand, scrub and human corpses ... Comparable in descriptive power and intelligence to the books of Remarque, Sassoon and Blunden which spoke in similar terms of 1914-1918.' Spectator

Amiens 1918
The Black Day of the German Army
Alistair McCluskey
Bloomsbury USA (17 June 2008)
Summary: Through the spring of 1918 of World War I (1914-1918), Germany had been on the offensive on the Western Front but had failed to break the Allies at any point. In July they had been forced back from the river Marne and were once again on the defensive. The Allies were now ready to increase the pressure. The Amiens area was selected and preparations were made in great secrecy with diversionary activity at other points on the line. 32 divisions were involved (twelve French, eight British, five Australian, four Canadian and one American) supported by over 500 tanks and overwhelming airpower. The first day saw an Allied advance of 5 miles across a 12-mile front, with over 27,000 German casualties. Progress was then less spectacular but by the time the battle ended on August 11 Germany had lost 75,000 men, and suffered a severe blow to morale. Amiens was notable for its successful application of the new combined-arms tactics, fully integrating infantry, artillery, armor and airpower at the commencement of the Allies' final, war-winning offensive.Published on the 90th anniversary of the battle, this book sets the strategic scene and clearly describes the fighting, highlighting the significance of the newly developed methods of war and detailing the troop movements that brought about the breakthrough and rapid advance that was achieved.

An Officer's Manual of the Western Front, 1914-1918
Stephen Bull
Bloomsbury Publishing (1 January 2008)
Summary: The Great War was a ferment of new ideas and weapons, from gas and flame throwers to super-heavy artillery, concrete bunkers, tanks, and aircraft. Meanwhile, older methods, such as machine guns and armor, were deployed in innovative ways. All these developments were documented in contemporary publications and manuals. This compendium of extracts and illustrations covers the trench experience, giving not only a popular nostalgic view of the war to end wars,” but a rounded picture of how it was.

Anglo-American Relations Since 1939
The Enduring Alliance
John Baylis
Manchester University Press (15 March 1997)
Summary: Taking the 'special relationship' as a central theme, the book explores the public and private diplomacy between Britain and the United states in periods of war and peace. Using recently released archives as well as contemporary sources, the areas both of cooperation and conflict are revealed. What emerges is a much more complexed relationship than the one normally portrayed in much of the secondary literature on the subject. The documents also reveal the way the concepts of the 'special relationship' was used as a 'tool of diplomacy' on both sides of the Atlantic.

Anzac
The Landing
Stephen Chambers
Pen & Sword Books Limited (2008)
Summary: ***AUSTRALIAN CONTENT*** The Anzac legend was born on the shores of Gallipoli during the historic morning of 25th April 1915. Landing on a hostile beach, under the cover of darkness, the Anzacs moved inland rapidly, but the response of the Ottoman forces was equally quick. The outcome of the campaign was arguably sealed during the first day, when the door for an Anzac victory was closed. With the order to dig, dig, dig and to stick it out, a stalemate was secured from the clutches of almost total disaster. After the Australians and New Zealanders received their baptism of fire, they became a stubborn thorn in the sides of the Ottoman army. Futilely after eight gruelling months of fighting, the campaign came to an end with the complete evacuation of the Gallipoli Peninsula. Failure did not mar the actions and sacrifice of the Anzacs who bestowed a powerful legacy, as well as being a landmark in the birth of modern Turkey. Almost a century later, with all the veterans now sadly gone, their legacy still survives in Anzac Day and with the ever increasing numbers of pilgrims who visit the battlefield today. This attractive and well-written book will serve as either a handy guide or concise history (or both). AUTHOR Steve Chambers is a highly experienced historian, guide and author (including Gully Ravine). He specializes in Gallipoli REVIEWS "informative, profusely illustrated and well-written."

Anzio
Italy 1944
Ian Blackwell
Casemate Publishers (1 January 2006)
Summary: In an attempt to outflank the German Gustav Line running across Italy, Operation SHINGLE was launched on January 22nd 1944. Achieving complete surprise, the Allies made a successful landing at Anzio, but paused rather than pushing quickly inland, a delay which gave the Germans time to seal off the area and to counterattack the beachhead. Heavy fighting took place until early March, during which the Americans and British were nearly driven into the sea, after which a stalemate was reached. In the following months the Allied forces were reinforced and in late May a breakout was made with the strategic intention of cutting off the Germans retreating from the Gustav line, which had now been pierced. However, General Mark Clark redirected the main effort of the Anzio forces towards the capture of Rome, permitting most of the enemy to escape and to fight another day. An operation that cost thousands of lives for disputed benefits, SHINGLE remains a controversial subject.REVIEWS "...Authoritative, detailed, and well-illustrated, the work is a praiseworthy overview of the Anzio campaign"World War II Quarterly, Vol 4 Number 2 2007

Anzio
The Friction of War
Lloyd Clark
Headline Publishing Group (2007)
Summary: "Masterly . . . a heartbreaking, beautifully told story of wasted sacrifice." --Vince Rinehart, "The Washington Post"The Allied attack of Normandy beach and its resultant bloodbath have been immortalized in film and literature, but the U.S. campaign on the beaches of Western Italy reigns as perhaps the deadliest battle of World War II's western theater. In January 1944, about six months before D-Day, an Allied force of thirty-six thousand soldiers launched one of the first attacks on continental Europe at Anzio, a small coastal city thirty miles south of Rome. The assault was conceived as the first step toward an eventual siege of the Italian capital. But the advance stalled and Anzio beach became a death trap. After five months of brutal fighting and monumental casualties on both sides, the Allies finally cracked the German line and marched into Rome on June 5, the day before D-Day. Richly detailed and fueled by extensive archival research of newspapers, letters, and diaries--as well as scores of original interviews with surviving soldiers on both sides of the trenches--"Anzio"is a harrowing and incisive true story by one of today's finest military historians.

Armies in East Africa 1914-18
Peter Abbott
Osprey (2002)
Summary: One of the least-published campaigns of World War I (1914-1918) was that fought in East Africa by forces of colonial troops – British Empire, Belgian, Portuguese and German. Short of resources, many European, African and Indian soldiers recorded epics of endurance as they hunted the outnumbered but brilliantly led German colonial forces across a disease-ridden wilderness. The achievements of Paul von Lettow Vorbeck – the last German commander in the field to lay down his arms – brought him fame and respect comparable to that won by Rommel in World War II. The events and the forces are described here in concise detail, and illustrated with rare photographs and striking colour artworks.

Armoured Crusader
The Biography of Major-General Sir Percy 'Hobo' Hobart
Kenneth Macksey
Grub Street (2004)
Summary: Percy Hobart was one of the greatest military thinkers of his time. Sidelined by the military establishment, he was brought out of retirement at the insistence of Winston Churchill in the lead up to Overlord. Hobart provided the British part of the Allied landing forces with all kinds of unique variants of established military vehicles, specially designed to overcome the peculiar obstacles expected in a beach landing in such heavily defended territory. There is considerable evidence to suggest that had the Americans adopted more of these variants, known by the British as "Hobart's Funnies," some of the losses at Omaha Beach might have been avoided.

Army Commandos 1940–45
Mike Chappell
Bloomsbury USA (15 September 1996)
Summary: The period from early 1940 to the end of 1942 was a time of gloom and uncertainty for the British, who stood alone against the assembled might of the Axis powers. They badly needed a champion, and were to find this in a small force of soldiers who inspired them with a series of daring raids against the coasts of 'occupied Europe', becoming the heroes of the British public and of the British Prime Minister who had created them. This title explores the wartime history of the British Army Commandos whose bravery did so much to raise the morale of the British public during World War II (1939-1945).
