Don’t Hurry Me Down to Hades
The Civil War in the Words of Those who Lived Through It
Acclaimed Civil War historian Susannah J. Ural brings a fresh insight to the war. Her consummate narrative draws together different personal recollections to create a textured, detailed portrait of a nation at war with itself. This unique examination of the Civil War looks at the desperate battles and the wider experiences wrought by the horrors of the conflict through excerpts from letters and diaries presenting the views of soldiers on the frontlines, commanders on the eve of battle, anxious families at home, ordinary and famous men and women, and slave and free. These first-hand accounts invite readers to set aside assumptions and learn about the divisions and range of opinions on both sides of this most bitter of contests.

World War I Companion
2014 sees the centenary of the start of World War I, the so-called Great War – the war promised to end all wars. This four-year conflict saw the major powers of the world commit their forces on an unparalleled scale, principally in the trenches of the Western Front, but also throughout the world from the colonies of Africa to the Chinese city of Tsingtao. This study consists of separate articles by 13 respected academics. Focussing on different aspects of the Great War, ranging from the war at sea, through the war in the east to the final offensives of 1918 while simultaneously revealing the technological race that transformed the battlefield, this is a wide-ranging companion to the first truly global conflict.

Secret Weapons
Death rays, Doodlebugs and Churchill’s Golden Goose
Deep in the bunkers of Nazi Germany, many of the world’s top scientists worked to create a new generation of war winning super-weapons. A few of these, such as jet aircraft and the V2 rocket, became realities by the end of the war, but others never made it off the drawing-board. Written by noted research scientist, Brian Ford, this book charts the sometimes fearsome and often ridiculous history of secret weapons development by all the major powers during the war, from British radar to Japanese ray-guns, and explains the impact that these developments eventually had on the outcome of World War II and on the post-war world.

China’s Wars
Rousing the Dragon 1894–1949
By the end of the first decade of the 21st century, China had become one of the great powers of the modern world. Economically, politically and militarily, its power and international reach is only exceeded by the United States, the world’s one remaining superpower. Its military spending, though dwarfed by the United States, is over $100 billion a year and it is developing an aircraft carrier, a stealth fighter jet and missiles that can shoot down satellites – all in an effort to project its power on a global scale. This is all a far cry from its position at the end of the 19th century, when it was a ramshackle medieval empire upon whom the European colonial powers could impose their wishes at will. In this new study Philip Jowett traces the complicated military history of China during these pivotal years, describing in detail the conflicts that forged the modern superpower that is China today.
