Hitler’s Ardennes Offensive, The German View of the Battle of the Bulge

READ THE FULL REVIEW


The author has collected together and sensitively edited the 
thoughts and recollections of the key German Leaders. This 
exposes attitudes and capabilities of the German commanders 
and military leaders. In the process it does much to 
demonstrated why the Germans failed in the Battle of the Bulge 
and in the war. Extremely interesting and informative.

Spy of the Century, Alfred Redl & the Betrayal of Austro-Hungary

READ THE FULL REVIEW

In war, and in the steps to war, single individuals frequently make 
significant contributions to the course of events through espionage. 
The nature of their craft often means that their actions go unnoticed 
for many years or, sometimes, for ever. This first full biography in 
English of Alfred Redl is a much under-told story that contains all 
the elements of a cracking fictional tale of spies. 
Strongly Recommended.

The Golden Arc Expedition raises money for The Get Exploring Trust

Will McCreadie (aged 21 who lives in Hampshire) and George Parry (aged 22 who lives in Fulham), students at Durham university (who previously attended Wellington College) , just became the first British duo to successfully complete the formidable challenge of kayaking 2,000 miles from Grenada to Miami in an open kayak, unassisted.    Relying solely on the equipment that they could carry and the hospitality of the locals, Will and George faced incredibly challenging conditions as they navigated  their 22ft sea kayak through open water and treacherous reefs in the Atlantic and the Caribbean, at times paddling non-stop for over 24 hours with no land in sight.
