World War I Battlefield Artillery Tactics by Dale Clarke, Peter Dennis From the beginning of 'trench warfare' in winter 1914/15, artillery became the absolutely dominant arm in all the major armies for the rest of World W ar I, to a degree never seen before or since. The numbers and capabilities of the guns and ammunition available governed all the generals' battle plan s; and the ways in which they were employed, and either succeeded or failed , decided the outcome of battles. The majority of the millions of casualtie s suffered during the war fell victim to artillery fire. The artillery war fell into three distinct phases along a four-year learnin g curve (with the necessary equipment and training for the second and third phases always lagging behind the tactical needs). The war began with mostl y light, mobile artillery equipped and trained to support fast-moving infan try and cavalry by direct fire, mostly with air-bursting shrapnel shells. The entirely unexpected end of the first campaigns of manoeuvre as the armies bogged down in static trench warfare found both sides ill equipped and ill trained for what was in essence siege warfare on an industrial scale. This demanded more and heavier guns and high-explosive shells, and more complex skills for indirect fire - observation on the ground and in the air, locating targets (including enemy artillery), dropping the right kind of shells on them, the communications needed for co-ordinating the work of hugely increased numbers of guns, and getting many millions of shells up to them for week-long bombardments. These seldom worked as anticipated (classically, by failing to 'cut.

From the major Japanese drives in 1937 to Japan's surrender, detailed maps delineate the course of the many conflicts that defined World War II. Thye also create a fascinating visual tribute to the ingenuity of troop movements by detailing the progress of forces from day to day (and so metimes from hour to hour). The accompanying text provides insight into the many twists and turns of the war, as well as the motivation of the leaders directing the troops who carried them out. Considered a classic of military history, the original volumes were prepared by distinguished members of the Department of Military Art and Engineering at the U.S. Military Academy and used as instructional tools for the cadets. This mammouth and invaluable work was created under the direction of Brigadier General Vincent J. Esposito, a faculty member at West Point for more than twenty years. His highly respected endeavor allows readers to easily follow the entire course of a campaign or battle in detail while gaining a greater understanding of the Pacific theater during World War II.

Il'yushin/Beriyev A-50: The 'Soviet Sentry' by Yefim Gordon Brought out in the late 1970s as a successor to the obsolete Tu-126 airborn e early warning aircraft, the A-50 co-developed by the Il'yushin and Beriye v bureaux is one of the most interesting military variants in the field of IL-76 military transport. Differing outwardly from the latter mainly in hav ing a conventional "saucer" rotodome, the A-50 entered flight testing in 19 80; the new Soviet AWACS entered service four years later. The improved A-5 0M was developed several years after that. The type continues in service wi th the Russian Air Force today, and the fleet is being upgraded to A-50U st andard. This book describes the A-50's thrilling developmental history, taking in its many variants (including the A-50EI export model for India) and gives an extensive overview of the various scale model kits covering the subject currently available on the market.

Soviet/Russian AWACS Aircraft: Tu-126, A-50, an-71 and KA-31 by Yefim Gordo n, Dmitriy Komissarov The need to ensure effective protection of the Soviet airspace in areas lacking adequate cover by ground radars led the nation's aircraft designers to start working on airborne early warning systems. The Tupolev OKB was the first among the nation's aircraft design bureaus to create an µeye in the sky', evolving the Tu-126 AEW aircraft from the Tu-114 long-haul turboprop airliner. The aircraft entered service in 1961, filling an important role with the Soviet Air Force until replaced in the early 1980s by the Ilyushin/ Beriyev A-50 AWACS based on the IL-76MD transport. In addition to these two types, the book describes the highly unorthodox Antonov An-71 with its tail-mounted rotodome (intended for operations from a large aircraft carrier which eventually never materialized) and the Kamov Ka-31 shipboard AEW helicopter. Due mention is also made of projects that never got off the drawing board the Tu-156, IL-150 and Yakovlev Yak-44.

14 Jerchel, Michael LEOPARD 1 MAIN BATTLE TANK 1965-95
Bloomsbury USA 1995 1855325209 / 9781855325203 Paperback Like New 
Leopard 1 Main Battle Tank 1965-95 by Michael Jerchel, Peter Sarson Development of the Leopard 1 can be traced back to November 1956, when the operational requirement for a new battle tank was formulated by the Federal German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr). Originally a Franco-German project, the tank under design was named the 'Standard-Panzer'. The French later dropped out, however, and on 1 October 1963 the 'Standard' tank was officially named 'Leopard', an appropriate choice considering Germany's wartime pedigree with the formidable Tiger and Panther. This book traces the development and service record of the Leopard 1, detailing its control systems, modifications and variants.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Presenting the desperate conflict of the First World War through the eyes of an ordinary German soldier, Ernst Jünger's Storm of Steel is translated by Michael Hofmann in Penguin Modern Classics. 'As though walking through a deep dream, I saw steel helmets approaching through the craters. They seemed to sprout from the fire-harrowed soil like some iron harvest.' A memoir of astonishing power, savagery and ashen lyricism, Storm of Steel depicts Ernst Jünger's experience of combat on the front line - leading raiding parties, defending trenches against murderous British incursions, and simply enduring as shells tore his comrades apart. One of the greatest books to emerge from the catastrophe of the First World War, it illuminates like no other book not only the horrors but also the fascination of a war that made men keep fighting for four long years. Ernst Jünger (1895-1998) the son of a wealthy chemist, ran away from home to join the Foreign Legion. His father dragged him back, but he returned to military service when he joined the German army on the outbreak of the First World War. Storm of Steel (Stahlgewittern) was Jünger's first book, published in 1920. Greatly admired by the Nazis, Jünger remained at a distance from the regime, with books such as his allegorical work On the Marble Cliffs (1939) functioning as a covert criticism of Nazi ideology and methods. If you enjoyed Storm of Steel, you might like Edward Blunden's Undertones of War, also available in Penguin Modern Classi.

Imperial Japanese Navy Submarines 1941-45 by Mark Stille, Tony Bryan The Imperial Japanese Navy in World War II possessed the most technological ly advanced and varied submarine fleet in the world. Ranging from the large st pre-nuclear submarines in the world to manned torpedoes, with the fastes t combat vessels and midget submarines operating alongside craft capable of carrying floatplane bombers, the fleet should have been an awe-inspiring a nd highly effective force. Yet, despite playing a crucial scouting role and being equipped with the best torpedoes available, the Japanese submarine f leet was surprisingly ineffective. With unique color plates, Mark Stille highlights the technical details of t his diverse fleet, including the design successes and operational errors as well as investigating the underlying causes behind the failures of one of the greatest naval forces in the Pacific. Editorial Reviews This new book from Osprey packs a large amount of reference information in its 48 pages, taking the I and RO series IJN submarines, and explaining each vessels specifications in separate 'gray block' style charts, for each vessel discussed." -Mark Smith, Model Shipwrights (June 2007) - From the Publisher.

Inventing Grand Strategy and Teaching Command: The Classic Works of Alfred Thayer Mahan Reconsidered / Edition 1 Between 1890 and 1913, Captain Alfred Thayer Mahan published a series of bo oks on naval warfare in the age of sail, which won a wide readership in his own day and established his reputation as the founder of modern strategic history. But Mahan's two principal arguments have been gravely misunderstoo d ever since, according to Jon Tetsuro Sumida. Instead of representing Maha n as an advocate of national naval supremacy, Sumida shows him asserting th at only a multinational naval consortium could defend international trade. Instead of presenting Mahan as a man who adhered to strategic principles, S umida shows that he stressed the importance of an officer's judgment and ch aracter formed by the study of history. Inventing Grand Strategy and Teaching Command includes a subject index to all Mahan's published books and an extensive bibliography. This is a book for scholars and students of military and strategic thinking and is a natural for libraries of U.S. service academies and U.S. armed services agencies and organizations.

This book charts the recruitment, training, service conditions and combat experience of a typical World War II German tank crewman, serving on various fronts - from the scorching heat of the Western Desert to the frozen tundra of the Eastern Front. It features many unpublished photographs from both private collectors and Panzer veterans themselves.

KV-1 and 2 Heavy Tanks 1939-45 by Steven J. Zaloga, Peter Sarson Named after Klimenti Voroshilov, the People's Commissar for Defence, the KVs proved a nasty surprise for German tank crews during the early days of Operation Barbarossa. Although slow, they were extremely heavily armoured. This volume examines the transition from multi-turreted tanks to heavy single-turret vehicles, consisting of the KV-1 and 2, and the increased favour given to the heavy single-turret after the Germans began to develop ammunition capable of penetrating even the thickest armour, whilst detailing the design, development and operational history of the Soviet Union's monstrous KV series of tanks.
