Description:
(Subject: World War I - General) Unusually for a British service Battalion, the Fifth battalion of the Essex Regiment spent its entire Great War service in action against the Turks. It had a bloody baptism of fire when it was thrown into the inferno of Gallipoli in 1915, fighting in the trenches near Anzac Cove. The rest of its war was spent in Egypt, guarding the Suez Canal, and then in Gaza and Palestine, where the battalion formed part of Allenby's successful advance to capture Jerusalem and Damascus in 1918. A facsimile reprint of the 1921 original, illustrated by photographs, maps and accompanied by a Roll of Honour, this is a fine history.

Description:
(Subject: World War II - Western Europe) The author was General Eisenhower's chief weatherman. His job was to predict weather for the largest invasion in history across waters that were frequently terrible for shipping. Stagg tells in detail the differing interpretations of weather data from three, often conflicting, teams of weathermen. He relates day by day and often hour by hour the complex weather forming over the Atlantic and heading toward England. Ultimately D-Day had to be postponed one day due to a brief window of good weather expected on June 6 over the Normandy beaches. Apparently the typical bad sea weather expected during June was a factor in the Nazis not foreseeing the invasion when it occurred.
