1939: The World We Left Behind (The Second World War Book 1)

14690


History is based on choices, not truth.

The way we see things now is not always how they looked at the time. The task Robert Kee set himself in his chronicle of 1939 was to cut across the demarcation lines of history, to capture the way people perceived the events of the time as they unfolded.

Turning to the newspapers of the day, Kee revives for us a world in which the Second World War is not yet a certainty — a world which still has countless other concerns which have not yet been dwarfed into insignificance by the European emergency — a world in which Chamberlain is still to many a credible leader, and Churchill and Roosevelt, though giants in waiting, are less than monumental.

In this thrilling account Kee explores life in the calm before the storm of 1939. Did the people of Britain see war coming? Or did the world change overnight, from stability to deadly conflict?

The Compact History of the Revolutionary War (Compact Histories Book 1)

14728


The Boston Tea Party. Brandywine. Germantown. Bunker Hill. Lexington. Saratoga. Charleston. George Washington. Paul Revere. Daniel Boone. Benedict Arnold: these are just a handful of the people and battles that shaped the war that birthed a nation.

The American Revolutionary War is such an important event in world history that it can be hard to separate fact from fiction. But military historians R. Ernest Dupuy and Trevor N. Dupuy set out to do just that, busting the myths to uncover the truth behind the momentous events that saw a ragtag crowd of reluctant amateurs take on and beat the extraordinary military power of the British Empire.

This book is a fascinating account of the unfolding of the war, painting a background in which Britain ruled the waves until they imposed taxes on the Thirteen Colonies, leading to widespread indignation. The rest, as they say, is history…

Destination 9/11: Director of Intelligence on 9/11 Speaks Out for the First Time

14729


Brigadier General Kelvin Coppock skilfully weaves three concurring narratives: USA's strategic passage through The Cold War, 'blindly' on course for a potential nuclear disaster; how the conflict politics of the Middle East coalesced into violent Islamist Jihadism; and an unvarnished first-hand account of one man's personal trajectory towards the white-hot crucible of command, on the day that changed the world...

Afghanistan: The Eye of a Storm

14730


This is a personal account of military service in Afghanistan during the relatively calm 'eye of a storm' between the initial post 9/11 invasion and the intensification of the conflict. The focus then was on stabilization and development. The fighting never really stopped, and the sense of threat increases throughout the narrative. Although based in Kabul the author travelled extensively in the country in a way that few other military people were able to do. This warm and at times amusing account can be enjoyed by those with scant knowledge of military matters or Afghanistan. It is written in an accessible and chatty style. The narrative is punctuated with grainy sketches and has simple maps to orient the reader. There are shards of Afghan history and of the author’s earlier life and service. This is not a description of combat operations. It is an insightful and unusual perspective on Afghanistan and the immense challenges faced by its people and those who sought to help them. A short Afterword updates developments to the April 2021 announcement of troop withdrawal.
