                                        Using the parallel stories of the two top-scoring US Marine Corps fighter aces
                                        of all time, this new book explores USMC aviation over the South Pacific.

                                        America’s Few delves into the history of US Marine Corps aviation in World
                                        War II, following the feats of the Corps’ top-scoring aces in the skies over
                                        Guadalcanal. During the interwar period, the support of USMC amphibious
                                        operations became a key element of Marine aviation doctrine, and the
                                        small force gradually grew. It was over Guadalcanal that Joe Foss emerged
                                        as a symbol of Marine aviation. As commander of VMF-121, he organized a          ISBN: 9781472838223
                                        group of fighter pilots that downed 72 enemy aircraft; Foss himself reached
                                        a score of 26. Gregory ‘Pappy’ Boyington, meanwhile, had become a Marine
                                        aviator in 1935. Best known as the commander of VMF-214, he came into
                                        his own in late 1943 and eventually matched Foss’s aerial victory score.
                                        Through the parallel stories of these two top-scoring fighter aces, as well
                                        as many other Marine aces, America’s Few examines the development of US

                                                     The Panzer III was the mainstay of the German armoured forces in the early

                                              of World War II by one of the world’s leading U-boat experts.

                                              The accepted historical narrative of World War II predominantly assigns
                                              U-boats to the so-called ‘Battle of the Atlantic’. This has become an
                                              almost accepted error. U-boats were active in nearly every theatre of
                                              operation in which the Wehrmacht served, and within all but the Southern
                                              Ocean. Moreover, these deployments were not undertaken in isolation from
                                              one another; instead they were frequently interconnected in what became        ISBN: 9781472820457
                                              an increasingly inefficient German naval strategy. This fascinating new
                                              book places each theatre of action in which U-boats were deployed into
                                              the broader context of World War II in its entirety while also studying the

                                    involvement in the wars in the air over Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

                                    and were considered the main threat to the Operation Neptune landings. In

                                    A dramatic retelling of the downfall of Rome itself from the perspective of
                                    the Roman general Stilicho and Alaric, king of the Visigoths.

                                    It took little more than a single generation for the 800-year-old Roman
                                    Empire to fall. In those critical decades, while Christians and pagans,
                                    legions and barbarians, generals and politicians squabbled over
                                    dwindling scraps of power, two men – former comrades on the battlefield
                                    – eventually found themselves on opposite sides in the great game of
                                    empire: Roman general Stilicho and Alaric, king of the Visigoths. Master

                                    both fought valiantly to prevent Rome’s downfall before one was ultimately

                                    A remarkable new study on the Battle of Crécy, a decisive English victory
                                    over the French that changed the course of the Hundred Years War.

                                    The Battle of Crécy in 1346 is one the most famous and widely studied
                                    military engagements in history. The repercussions of this battle – in
                                    which England’s King Edward III decisively defeated a far larger French
                                    army – were felt for hundreds of years, and the exploits of those fighting
                                    reached the status of legend. Yet groundbreaking research has shown that
                                    nearly everything that has been written about this dramatic event may be         ISBN: 9781472849373
                                    wrong. In this new study, Michael Livingston reveals how modern scholars
                                    have used archived manuscripts, satellite technologies and traditional
                                    fieldwork to help unlock what was arguably the battle’s greatest secret:
                                    the location of the now quiet fields where so many thousands died. Crécy
                                    is a new history of one of the most important battles of the Middle Ages.

                                                 The Battle of the Bulge was the last major German offensive in the West.

    No Wider War
    A History of the Vietnam War Volume 2: 1965–75

    Sergio Miller

    No Wider War is the second volume of a two-part exploration of America’s involvement in Indochina from the
    end of World War II to the Fall of Saigon. Following on from the first volume, In Good Faith, which told the
    story from the Japanese surrender in 1945 through America’s involvement in the French Indochina War and
    the initial advisory missions that followed, it traces the story of America’s involvement in the Vietnam War
    from the first Marines landing at Da Nang in 1965, through the traumatic Tet Offensive of 1968. It details
    the gradual ‘Vietnamization’ of the war that followed, culminating with the withdrawal of American forces
    and the final loss of the South in 1975.

    Drawing on the latest research, unavailable to the authors of the classic Vietnam histories, including
    recently declassified top secret National Security Agency material, Sergio Miller examines in depth both the
    events and the key figures of the conflict to present a masterful narrative of America’s most divisive war.

                                 The U.S. Civil War was the most cataclysmic military struggle of the late 19th century, and in four bloody
                                 years of fighting from 1861 to 1865 over 620,000 American soldiers and sailors lost their lives in more than
                                 8,000 battles, engagements and skirmishes. U.S. Civil War Battle by Battle tells the story of 30 of the most
                                 significant of these battles. These include some of the most famous clashes, such as the battles of Gettysburg
                                 and Fredericksburg, which resonate through American military history, but also the less well known, such
                                 as the battles of Brandy Station and Cedar Creek. This highly illustrated introduction, packed full of colour
                                 artwork, covers every theatre of the war and details infantry, cavalry, artillery and seaborne units from both
                                 the Union and the Confederate forces to give a true sense of the scale of the War between the States.

                             In the spring of 1982, Argentinian forces invaded the Falkland Islands,
                         a remote British territory in the South Atlantic. This led to a bitter 10-week war.

                         This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War. With titles ranging from Abandon Ship to
                        Cold War Fleet, our list provides insights into one of the pivotal events of 20th-century British history.

P-51B/C Mustang
Northwest Europe 1943–44

Luftwaffe Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring admitted that the appearance of long-range Mustangs over
Berlin spelled the end of the Jagdwaffe’s ability to defeat American daylight bombing. But the Mustang
was far more than an escort – it was a deadly hunter that could out-perform nearly every German fighter
when it was introduced into combat. Entering the war in Europe in December 1943, P-51Bs and P-51Cs
had advantages over German Bf 109s and Fw 190s in respect to the altitude they could reach, their rate
of climb and top speed. Initially tapped for close bomber escort, Mustangs were quickly turned loose to
range ahead of the bomber stream in order to challenge German fighters before they could assemble to
engage the bombers en masse.
