Item 282 V-2 : A combat history of the first ballistic missile
In August 1944, Londoners thought the war might be over by Christmas. But on September 8, 1944, in the London Suburb of Chiswick, a thunderous double boom was heard followed by a huge plume of black smoke rising high into the air. Several seconds later another explosion rocked the earth near Epping. There had been no warnings, no drone of aircraft above, just sudden devastation. "Operation Penguin", the V-2 offensive, had begun.

In V-2 : this book, T.D. Dungan relies on an unparalleled collection of original documents, unpublished photographs, and account from those who were there to provide a complete description of the V-2 program, the missile's use in combat, and the race to capture its secrets.

Tracy D.Dungan is a leading authority on the V-2 rocket and founding member of the international V-2 Rocket Research Group. He assisted with the restoration of the USAAF Museum's V-2 missile and has contributed to numerous articles and documentaries on the subject.

Item 284 Assault Rifle
The Development of the modern military rifle and its ammunition
In this encyclopedic book, two of the world's leading gun writers, tell the story of one of the most important weapons in the modern soldier's armoury. From the very first gun to be called an assault rifle - the German StG44 of World War Two - to the compact and sophisticated weapons produced today, the story of this fascinating breed of weapon is presented in detail, and analyses every aspect of gun and ammunition design. Each gun and type of ammunition is then given its own write-up and full specifications, country by country.
The first part commences with a brief historical summary of the assault rifle, its origins and its development. Gun design is then examined in detail, including operating mechanisms, weapon configuration and the requirements for a good assault rifle. Ammunition design and performance is considered next as it is the key element in the characteristics of an assault rifle. Ballistics, and especially the balance between recoil and effectiveness, is therefore covered in some detail, and the requirements for ideal assault rifle cartridges are identified. This leads on to a history of the assault rifle cartridge, examining the reasons for the choices made and the many experiments discards along the way.
The second part of the book describes national military programmes since the end of World War Two. It presents a general history of developments in each country, including experimental programmes, before describing the principal service and experimental weapons in detail.
The book concludes with two appendices : an ammunition data table, containing details of service and many experimental cartridges, and a comprehensive glossary.

Panzer 1 Item 291 Panzer I - The beginning of a dynasty
In 1935, after a long test and production process, the first in a saga of tanks to become a hallmark was presented in Germany, the Panzerkampfwagen I.
Their participation in the Spanish Civil War evidenced that, despite being excellent training tanks, neither their armor, nor their armament or engine could match real combat tanks of the time. However, their role in the Spanish Civil War and the early campaigns of the Second World War was certainly important.
But the real importance of this small tank lies in its versatility to mount different types of guns (antitank, antiaircraft, field guns) and to serve in artillery, engineers and logistics units during the whole world conflict.
This book is a wide overview of the genesis and all the variants built of the first in a saga of German tanks that marked the convulsed times of the Second World War.
