With such authoritative authors as John Cooksey and Jerry Murland at the helm, you'd expect nothing less than a cracking guide to these battles and the grounds over which they were fought, and that's exactly what you get. The writing is measured and informative and the chapters liberally sprinkled with anecdotes detailing individual, as well as collective, deeds of heroism and sacrifice. This, as the cover proclaims, is a guide to the Western Front by car, by bike and on foot and there are useful maps and clearly defined routes for those wishing to explore the ground where so much blood was shed. For anyone contemplating a tour of these battlegrounds, this book will be an indispensable companion; something to slip into the rucksack along with plastic mac, bottles of water and poppy crosses to lay at those all too many memorials and cemeteries in these particular foreign fields.

This book is a photographic history of the Nazi party's building works in Munich and in the Berchtesdagen and Obersalzberg, mainly using contemporary German postcards as its source. These postcards are fascinating, and give a good idea of the sort of propaganda that the German people were exposed to. They are generally well reproduced, and the author is clearly very knowledgeable about his topic.

This is a story behind a story, one of which has been touched upon in many other histories and biographies but has never before been brought together as a whole.
