RUSSIA AND THE NEW WORLD DISORDER

By Bobo Lo

(Subject: History & Development of Warfare - General) The Russian annexation of Crimea was one of the great strategic shocks of the past twenty-five years. For many in the West, Moscow’s actions in early 2014 marked the end of illusions about cooperation, and the return to geopolitical and ideological confrontation. Russia, for so long a peripheral presence, has become the central actor in a new global drama. This groundbreaking book analyzes the broader context of the crisis by examining the interplay between Russian foreign policy and an increasingly anarchic international environment.

FORTRESS KENT

By Roy Ingleton

(Subject: History & Development of Warfare - General) Since the dawn of civilisation, Britain has been menaced by foreign powers and invasive hordes. Situated on the extreme southeastern corner of England, the county of Kent is the nearest point to continental Europe, and has so been the targeted landing point for most of these incursions. From the time of the Angles, Jutes and Saxons to the Second World War, the Men of Kent and Kentish Men have had to set up and maintain defensive structures, from Norman castles to 1940 pill boxes, from the Royal Military Canal to the anti-tank ditches carved out of the hills around the coast. This book is the story of these fortifications.

HEROIC OPTION: THE IRISH IN THE BRITISH ARMY

By Desmond & Jean Bowen

(Subject: History & Development of Warfare - General) While for many centuries there has been antagonism between the British and the Irish, the latter have fought the former's wars with exemplary courage and tenacity. As a result of the Irish regiments' superb service in the Boer War in South Africa at the end of the 19th Century, Queen Victoria ordered the formation of the Irish Guards in 1900 as a mark of the Britain's gratitude. Even after Partition, Irishmen continued to serve in Irish regiments in large numbers and, during WWII, a significant number of the most influential generals were of Irish extraction (Published: 2005) (Publisher: Pen & Sword) (ISBN: 1844151522) (Pagination: 331pp, 40 b/w ills) (Condition: New in d/w) UL-XXXXXX

SWORD OF SCOTLAND: OUR FIGHTING JOCKS

By Anthony Leask

(Subject: History & Development of Warfare - General) The story of Scotland’s fighting men and their part in shaping the history of our world. Scotland's numerous wars with England have played their part, but for over 300 years Scottish regiments have fought with distinction and selfless sacrifice alongside their old foes, and played a key role in preserving Britain’s freedom. Scotland's contribution and its sacrifices have been out of all proportion to the size of the Country. The clan structure and the tremendous pride in family that this has produced over the centuries are the foundations of the regiments of Scotland and their greatest strength in adversity. To them defeat is unthinkable. (Published: 2006) (Publisher: Pen & Sword) (ISBN: 184415405X) (Pagination: 210pp, 66 b/w photos, maps) (Condition: New in dw) UL-XXXXXX
