Einarr’s Saga, The Winter

 

B1905

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The Family Sagas of the Scandinavians, perpetuated by their descendants in the Lordship of Galloway, were private accounts intended to serve as manuals for future family leaders. As a result, they often differ in part from accepted historical wisdom, but have proved to be more accurate on occasion. The result is that an entertaining and absorbing fictional story also provides some provoking fresh insights into important stages of history.

The Siege of Brest 1941, A Legend of Red Army Resistance On The Eastern Front

B1904

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Relatively little coverage has been made of Russian campaigns and battles during the Great Patriotic War in English language publications and books. What has been published in the Russian language has contained many distortions to fit the accounts into the ‘official’ Soviet view. When a book, such as this new title from Pen & Sword, appears in both Russian and English, based on extensive research and showing the Russian and German views, it is a rare and valuable historic account.reviews

Images of War, Russian Armour in the Second World War

B1902

READ THE FULL REVIEW

As with other titles in this series, this is essentially a photo essay that contains many rare photographs from military archives. There are some familiar images that are used in most books covering WWII in Europe, but most images are published for the first time in a book available to the general public. The text is concise and adds to the images. Production quality is high.
