von Braun Item 296 : Von Braun - Dreamer of Space - Engineer of War
The first authoritative biography of Wernher von Braun, chief rocket engineer of the Third Reich - creator of the infamous V-2 rocket - who became one of the fathers of the U.S. space program. In this meticulously researched and vividly written life, Michael J.Neufeld gives us a man of profound moral complexities, glorified as a visionary and vilified as a war criminal, a man whose brilliance and charisma were coupled with an enormous and, some would say, blinding ambition.

Sevastopol 1942 Item 297 : Sevastopol 1942 - Von Manstein's triumph
Campaign No.189
In late July 1941, Hitler ordered Army Group South to seize the Crimea in order to prevent Soviet air attacks on the Ploesti oilfields in Romania.This vital mission was assigned to the weak Eleventh Army under Generaloberst von Manstein. In late September 1941, von Manstein began his initial attacks upon the strong Soviet defences at the Perekop isthmus, and then cleared the heavily fortified Kerch Peninsula in May 1942. With the threat to his flank removed, von Manstein massed two German and a Romanian corps against the principal city of Crimea - Sevastopol. This volume assesses the impact of logistics, weather and joint operational planning in examining this the last major German victory in World War II.

Armored Trains Item 298 : Armored Trains
New Vanguard no. 140
First seen during the American Civil War, and later appearing in the Franco-Prussian War and the Anglo-Boer Wars, armored trains came to prominence on the Eastern Front during World War I. They were also deployed during the Russian Civil War, and the technology traveled east into the Chinese Civil War, and the subsequent conflict with Japan. They saw service on the Russian Front in World War II, but were increasingly sidelined because of their vulnerability to air attack. Steven J.Zaloga examines the origins and development of the armored train, focusing equally on the technical detail and on the fascinating story of how armored trains were actually used in combat.

Stryker Combat Vehicles Item 299 : Stryker Combat Vehicles
New Vanguard no. 121
The eight wheeled (8x8) Stryker combat light armored vehicle was adopted by the US Army in 2002 to provide a comparatively rapidly deployable contingency force with armor protection, tactical mobility, and heavy firepower, as well as advanced command, control communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) capability. Converting the first new US Army release since the M1 Abrams MBT, this book details the conception, ongoing development, and deployment of one of the most highly anticipated new AFV's in recent years, including its service in Iraq and the ensuing controversy surrounding the Stryker's varying successes.

D-Day Fortifications in Normandy Item 300 : D-Day Fortifications in Normandy
Fortress No.37
German defenses along the Normandy beaches were part of the larger Atlantic Wall fortifications designed to defend Fortress Europe. When Field Marshal Erwin Rommel took command of the invasion front in late 1943, he set about enhancing fortifications along Normandy coast, believing that any Allied assault had to be stopped on the invasion beaches themselves. His most important contribution to the defenses was an extensive program of improvised beach obstructions designed to complicate any landing attempt. This book analyzes these fortifications and describes how the Allied forces overcame them on the morning of June 6, 1944.
