This is one of those books which I can not only enjoy, but simple sit back in admiration for. This is one to keep among any reference collection for detail on British Army Uniforms, particularly in this case for WW1.

Military Model Scene, Robin Buckland
There is a wealth of knowledge presented in this work. The research that went into it is very meticulous. This edition includes years of updated research done since the hardback was originally published in 1996 as A Distant Storm. Happily, the text is always interesting and entertaining. If you want to learn the facts about this period of naval warfare there is no better way to do so than by reading this book. I’m certainly glad I did.

Pirates and Privateers, Cindy Vallar
This is a sobering and harrowing book, detailing many forgotten crimes committed against POWs who should have been offered the protection of the Geneva Convention, but tragically were not.

Matthew Smaldon - Recollections of WWII
There is little that wargamers can find here for games but the tales of heroism and small battle unit actions may create some inspiration and are interesting in their own right. The book is a detailed account which, to my mind, shows the futility of trying to counter conventional forces with small asymmetric Special Forces with high morale but questionable training and equiptment: hence the title! The book is recommended to those with an interest in Special Forces, their creation, planning, equiptment and operations but the reader will need to make up his own mind as to whether they are useful or repaid the resources expended on them. It is recommended to the expert and the general reader alike.
