  • Beyond the Beachhead : The 29th Infantry Division in Normandy.
  • Joseph Balkoski
  • Paperback, 336 pages, b/w photos & maps, 230 x 155 mm. By 1945, the US Army had sixty-eight infantry divisions, forty-two of which fought in the great campaign in north-west Europe that began with the amphibious landings on D-Day and ended eleven months later with Germany's surrender. This book examines the experience of one infantry division - the 29th - during forty-five days of combat from Omaha Beach on D-Day to the liberation at St Lo. Using interviews, official records and unit histories and supplementing his narrative with meticulously detailed maps, Balkoski follows the 29th from the bloody landings at Omaha through the hedgerows of Normandy, illustrating the brutal realities of life on the front line.

Im Mai 1941 lief das neue deutsche Schlachtschiff BISMARCK aus, um zum Abschneiden des britischen Inselreiches von seiner überseeischen Versorgungsschifffahrt beizutragen. Und bereits nach wenigen Tagen auf See traf es auf angemessene Gegner: Die HOOD - damals das größte Schlachtschiff der Welt - wurde wenige Minuten nach Feuereröffnung von der BISMARCK tödlich getroffen, die PRINCE OF WALES, ebenfalls getroffen, drehte ab. Doch nach kurzer Zeit hatten die Engländer sich von diesem Schock erholt, und wenige Tage später ereilte die BISMARCK das gleiche Schicksal
        In diesem Buch werden die Entstehungsgeschichte der BISMARCK, ihre Konstruktion und ihr Kriegseinsatz unter technisch-militärischen Aspekten aus heutiger Sicht anhand von authentischen Fotos und exzellenten Plänen dargelegt.

      • Lloyd Clark 2012
      • Paperback, 528 pages, Illustrations, maps, ports., 34 x 157 mm. A monumental, enthralling work charting the greatest land battle of all time which changed the course of World War Two, by a highly regarded military expert 5th July 1943: the greatest land battle of all time began around the town of Kursk in Russia. This epic confrontation between German and Soviet forces was one of the most important military engagements in history and epitomised 'total war'.It was also one of the most bloody, characterised by hideous excess and outrageous atrocities. The battle concluded with Germany having incurred nearly three million dead and the Soviet Union a staggering ten million. It was a monumental and decisive encounter of breathtaking intensity which became a turning point, not only on the Eastern Front, but in the Second World War as a whole. Using the very latest available archival material including the testimonies of veterans and providing strategic perspective alongside personal stories of front line fighting, Lloyd Clark has written a lucid, enthralling and heart-stopping account of this incredible battle.
