DECISIVE VICTORY The Battle of the Sambre: 4 November 1918/

Clayton. 272p mint pbk  35 b/w photos, 23 maps (6 sketch & 17 colour), 4 diags, 1 b/w painting, 4 tables. The Battle of the Sambre, 4 November 1918, was a decisive British victory. The battle has, however, been largely neglected by historians: it was the last large-scale, set-piece battle fought by the British Expeditionary Force on the Western Front: the Armistice was only one week away. Seven Victoria Crosses were won and the poet Wilfred Owen was killed in action. In scale it was similar to the first day of the Battle of the Somme: thirteen divisions of the BEF led the assault on a frontage of approximately twenty miles, supported by over 1,000 guns, with initial plans presuming an involvement of up to 70 tanks and armoured cars. £24.95

H31299 HOME GUARD INSTRUCTION : BATTLECRAFT & BATTLE DRILL 1942- COMPLETE MANUAL PARTS I,II,III & IV  / - MINT PBK REPRINT These four pamphlets show how close Home Guard training and thinking was to the British Army in the field. Admittedly some of the heavier weapons were crude (particularly the Smith Gun and the Northover Projector - both of which are covered), but the method of training was very similar to that of the field army. These four pamphlets cover battle craft, battle drill, patrolling and defence and are illustrated throughout with very clear line drawings and relevant photographs. The four pamphlets have never been published together before and we recommend them to anyone interested in the state of the infantry art in 1942-43 as well as in Home Guard training and thought at the time. A very good read that will clarify a number of tactical questions.  £29.99
