This is a very welcome addition to the publish pool of knowledge for the Peninsular War and general warfare to the 20th Century. Very readable and well-supported by images, This is the first book to cover military engineering during the Peninsular War by the British Army. A must-read book for all interested in land forces at war.
This carefully edited collection of eyewitness accounts of the battles between the French and the Russians provides a balanced view but much of the information will be new to English-language readers. There is a fine monochrome photo-plate section which adds greatly to the content, graphically demonstrating the terrible conditions under which many battles were fought. Recommended.
The author is now so firmly established as a prolific writer of naval subjects that each new book tends to be compared to his previous work rather than to current and past authors. Once again, he has produced an authoritative work that is both concise and comprehensive. The work is lavishly illustrated and will stand for many years as the definitive work on the subject. Highly Recommended.
This was not only the first naval battle of WWII, but it was a victory for a small force of British and Commonwealth warships against a significantly more powerful enemy. The author has produced a well researched work that carries monochrome images in support of a flowing text that carries the reader through this exciting story.Highly Recommended.
