Armoured Hussars 2 provides a highly-illustrated account of the 1st Polish Armored Division's baptism of fire in Normandy in August 1944, from Operations Totalise and Tractable to the victory at Falaise, culminating at the climactic battle on Mont Ormel - the site of this triumph was justly named 'A Polish Battlefield' by the Canadians. This album contains contributions written by the distinguished military author and Normandy veteran Ken Tout, who was recently awarded the Knight's Cross of the Order of Merit by the Republic of Poland for popularizing the Polish soldiers of the Second World War. Serving as a young Sherman tank crewman in the Northamptonshire Yeomanry, Ken watched the Poles go in to action on 8 August and witnessed their savage baptism of fire. The album features many dramatic photographs and documents, numbering over 250, from the renowned Polish Institute and Sikorski Museum (PISM) as well as from the author's collection. It is also supplemented by eight pages of color plates featuring divisional armor, uniforms, maps and a center page-spread of a close-quarter action on Mont Ormel, based on the memoirs of a regimental commander. Illustrated by the renowned military artist, Peter Dennis, this depiction also features on the front cover. This book will appeal to all who have an interest in the Second World War and the Normandy Campaign, and is a fitting tribute to those Polish soldiers who fought so gallantly for Europe's freedom as part of the Allied Liberation Army and played a decisive role in the defeat of German forces in France at the Battle of the Falaise Pocket in August 1944.

This volume sees the Desert Rats fighting in North Africa, Burma, Sicily and Italy. Their bravery is relived through the words of the combatant soldiers - the author has interviewed troopers, gunners and infantrymen to tell this story of Churchill's favourite division.

Christopher Seton-Watson comes form a family of historians. His father, R. W. Seton-Watson, was Professor of Central European History at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies from 1922-1945, and his borther Hugh was Professor of Russian History at the same School from 1951-1983. From 1946 to 1983 Christopher devoted most of his academic life at Oriel College, Oxford, to the study of contemporary Italian history. As Michael Howard observes in his Foreword, he was remarkably lucky 'to have a life to devote to anything given his record of front-line service from the beginning to the very end of the Second World War'. As a young officer in the 2nd Regiment Royal Horse Artillery he took part in three retreats, in France in 1940, in Greece in 1941 and in North Africa in 1942. In October 1942 he participated in the victorious Battle of Alamein, and in May 1943 witnessed the surrender of the German Afrika Korps in Tunisia. From March 1944 to May 1945 he commanded I Battery RHA in the long, slow advance up Italy from Cassino to Bologna. In Michael Howard's words, Christopher Seton-Watson 'describes it all with vividness and accuracy that brings those compaigns into sharp focus. As descriptions of war experience, these are classic'. And for him it was 'a Good War in every sense of the word', military, moral and human: 'his positive experiences and achievements far outweighed the negative aspects inseparable from all military activity. There were for him good years, and his chronicle of them makes a fine book'. -- Inside jacket flap.

Formed in 1938, the 48th Battalion Royal Tank Regiment was one of London's two Territorial tank battalions. Following the outbreak of war in 1939, 48RTR trained hard before being posted overseas to join the 7th Armoured Division in the North African desert. In the tough fighting that followed in Tunisia, and in the subsequent Italian campaign, 48RTR proved itself to be a highly efficient fighting machine. With Churchills to War tells the story of this Territorial tank battalion at war, compiled by a former regular officer in 48RTR from official war diaries, personal diaries and reminiscences of former members of the battalion. Detailed first-hand accounts are given of the various tank actions in which the battalion played its part, including Medjez-el-Bab in North Africa, where it captured the first German Tiger tank to be acquired intact by the Allies. Fully illustrated throughout, With Churchills to War presents a comprehensive war history of the battalion and includes detailed appendices listing honours, awards, personnel, casualties and tank names.
