 RETRIBUTION

by Prit Buttar

The Soviet reconquest of Central Ukraine, 1943. Beginning towards the end of the Battle of Kursk, Retribution explores the massive Soviet offensive that followed Operation Zitadelle, which saw depleted and desperate German troops forced out of Central Ukraine. In this title, Buttar describes in detail the little-known series of near-constant battles that saw a weakened German army confronted by a tactically sophisticated force of over six million Soviet troops. As a result, the Wehrmacht was driven back to the Dnepr and German forces remaining in the Taman Peninsula south of Rostov withdrew into the Crimea, a retreat which would become one of many in the months that followed.

HISTORY OF THE IRISH BRIGADES IN THE SERVICE OF FRANCE

by John Cornelius O’Callaghan
 





From the Revolution in Great Britain and Ireland Under James II, to the Revolution in France Under Louis XVI. ‘The Wild Geese’ as Irish mercenaries in Europe were known, were renowned as first class fighting men. Forced to flee their native island after the defeat and expulsion of the Catholic King James II, the Irish Brigades followed their master to his exile in France. Fed by continual drafts of fresh exiles from Ireland, the Brigades served both the Stuart (or Jacobite) causes, and that of the French Crown. Eventually the emancipation of the Catholics in Britain and the French revolution dried up the source of recruits and helped ensure that Irish military services would be given to Britain. This history, illustrated with several portraits, is rich and full and cannot fail to be of interest to British, as well as to Irish, readers. Reprint of 1870 original Edition

New in card cover - 649pp +8 plates.
