Knights of the Black Cross: Hitler's Panzerwaffe and Its Leaders by Bryan Perrett (£58.50)Publisher: Robert Hale — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0709028067]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “The German Armoured Corps — the Panzerwaffe — was instrumental in the mighty conquests of the Nazis between 1939 and 1942 and in the remaining years of the war it provided the very backbone of Germany’s defence. Although its strength never exceeded one-fifth of the German Army, the commitment of the Panzerwaffe’s officers to the traditional Annihilation Concept made an enormous impact on the Second World War, particularly on the Eastern Front. The titanic struggles which took place there, after the early victories in Poland, the West and the Balkans, demonstrated the German tank soldiers’ superior tactical abilities and provided the basis of Soviet war theories to this day.

Bryan Perrett’s meticulously researched and incisive account tells the story of this remarkable band of soldiers, the evolution of their tactics and the development of their superlative fighting vehicles. An authoritative study which will fascinate the military expert and general reader alike.”

Barbarian Warriors: Saxons, Vikings and Normans by Dan & Susanna Shadrake (£23.00)Publisher: London: Brassey's — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1857532139]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Colour photographs; Colour plates; Black & white drawings; Cutaways;

From the cover: “This is an essential book for everyone with an interest in the warriors of Britain’s Dark Ages. It is the definitive guide to the arms and armour of all the invading barbarian armies, from Saxons and Celts to Vikings and Normans. It covers the period from the disintegration of Roman rule in Britain in the 5th century — the legendary era of King Arthur — through the raids of Saxons, Celts, and Vikings until the final conquest of Britain by the Normans in the 11th century.

Frequently portrayed as an era of brutality and chaos, this book reveals the reality behind the legendary warriors of the period. What did King Arthur’s warriors really look like? Who were the mysterious pirate raiders from Ireland who ravaged Wales and Scotland? It also uncovers the considerable art of war in this period, the high level of craftsmanship achieved in the manufacture of all forms of arms and armour, from mail and scale defences to beautifully embellished helmets and swords. It shows how the achievements of the Roman war machine survived throughout the Dark Ages until the time of the Normans.

Drawing on the very latest discoveries and research, the authors create a vivid picture of Dark Ages warfare which will surprise many enthusiasts. Dan and Susanna Shadrake’s authoritative text is illustrated by 150 colour and black and white photographs, and world-renowned military artist Richard Hook has created four colour plates for the book.”

Guderian: Panzer General by Kenneth Macksey (£9.50)Publisher: Greenhill Books — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1853675385]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: First in this, revised, edition. [First: Macdonald and Jane's, 1975] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Kenneth Macksey’s highly regarded biography of Generaloberst Heinz Guderian provides a rare opportunity to observe the mind and motives of one of the foremost proponents of blitzkrieg. Now revised and fully updated, this latest edition draws upon fresh source material in order to shed new light on his life story and the activities of the General Staff officers.

Guderian was a rebel in search of ideals, and a general whose personality, genius and achievements far exceeded those of Rommel. A master of strategy and tactics, he built the Panzer force in the face of opposition from the German General Staff, and personally led the lightening campaigns by tanks and aircraft that put a large part of Europe under German domination.

As well as providing clear insight into the crucial campaigns throughout Europe, this is also a searing portrait of the Third Reich’s leading personalities as they turned imminent victory into agonizing defeat, and illuminates why Guderian was so admired by some whilst denigrated by others.”
