Challenge of Battle: The British Army's Baptism of Fire in the First World War, Adrian Gilbert
1 Challenge of Battle: The British Army's Baptism of Fire in the First World War
Adrian Gilbert UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472810597 / 9781472810595 Soft cover New Book 19.8 x 12.7 x 2.8 cm 
In this timely new book, Adrian Gilbert clears away the layers of sentiment that have obscured a true historical understanding of the 1914 campaign to provide a full, unvarnished picture of the British Expeditionary Force at war. Previous assessments of the BEF have held to an unshakeable belief in its exceptional performance during the battles of 1914. But closer examination of the historical record reveals a force possessing some key strengths yet undermined by other, significant failings. Within an authoritative and well-paced campaign narrative, Challenge of Battle re-evaluates the army's leadership, organization and tactics. It describes the problems faced by commanders, grappling with the brutal realities of 20th-century warfare, and explains how the British infantry's famed marksmanship has to be set against the inexperience and tactical shortcomings of the BEF as a whole. Making full use of diaries, letters and other contemporary accounts, Adrian Gilbert builds a compelling picture of what it was like to fight in the battles of Mons, Le Cateau, the Aisne and Ypres.

Commonwealth Cruisers 1939-45 #226 Osprey New Vanguard, Angus Konstam
2 Commonwealth Cruisers 1939-45 #226 Osprey New Vanguard
Angus Konstam UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472805011 / 9781472805010 Soft cover New Book 24.8 x 18.4 x 0.5 cm Paul Wright 
In the early 20th century Britain's largest colonies established their own small naval presence, and their ships fought alongside the Royal Navy during World War I. These fleets were expanded during the inter-war years, and in 1939 the Royal Australian Navy, the Royal Canadian Navy and the Royal New Zealand Navy willingly joined the fight on behalf of the British Commonwealth. For the most part these small navies consisted of a few cruisers and destroyers, designed to protect territorial waters and local sea lanes. However, these warships and their crews soon found themselves involved in a global war, and consequently were called upon to fight wherever they were needed, against the Germans, the Italians and the Japanese. This book tells the story of these small cruiser forces, and the men who served the Allied cause so well during the long and brutal war at sea.

Up and Down Australia, Arthur W. Upfield
3 Up and Down Australia
Arthur W. Upfield Australia ETT Imprint 2016 1925416631 / 9781925416633 Soft cover New Book 23.4 x 15.6 x 1.8 cm 
Arthur William Upfield is well known as the creator of Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte (Bony) who features in 29 crime detection novels, most set in the Australian outback. He also wrote more than 220 short stories and articles, based on his experiences in the bush between 1911 and 1931. Up and Down the Real Australia is the second published collection of Upfield's short works. Kees de Hoog has selected 45 autobiographical articles, ranging from humorous outback anecdotes to personal experiences at Gallipoli and the Somme during the First World War. Kees has added The Murchison Murders, Upfield's account of how the "perfect murder" was developed for his second Bony novel, The Sands of Windee; how Snowy Rowles used it to commit at least one, probably three, murders in 1929; how the crime was solved; and what happened at Rowles' trial in 1932. About the Author: Arthur William Upfield (1 September 1890 13 February 1964) was an Australian writer, best known for his works of detective fiction featuring Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte ('Bony') of the Queensland Police Force, a half-caste Aborigine. Born in England, Upfield moved to Australia in 1910 and fought with the Australian military during the First World War. Following his war service, he travelled extensively throughout Australia, obtaining a knowledge of Australian Aboriginal culture that would later be used extensively in his written works. In addition to his detective fiction, Upfield was also a member of the Australian Geological Society and was involved in numerous scientific expeditions. Upfield's works remained popular after his death, and in the 1970s were the basis for an Australian television series entitled "Boney".

The Landing at ANZAC 1915 #12 Australian Army Campaigns Series, Chris Roberts
6 The Landing at ANZAC 1915 #12 Australian Army Campaigns Series
Chris Roberts Australia Big Sky Publishing 2015 1925275027 / 9781925275025 Soft cover New Book 24.5 x 17.5 x 1.3 cm 
The Landing at ANZAC, 1915 challenges many of the cherished myths of the most celebrated battle in Australian and New Zealand history - myths that have endured for almost a century. Told from both the ANZAC and Turkish perspectives, this meticulously researched account questions several of the claims of Charles Bean's magisterial and much-quoted Australian official history and presents a fresh examination of the evidence from a range of participants. The Landing at ANZAC, 1915 reaches a carefully argued conclusion in which Roberts draws together the threads of his analysis delivering some startling findings. But the author's interest extends beyond the simple debunking of hallowed myths, and he produces a number of lessons from the armies of today. This is a book that pulls the Gallipoli campaign into the modern era and provides a compelling argument for its continuing relevance. In short, today's armies must never forget the lessons of Gallipoli.

The August Offensive at Anzac 1915 #10 Australian Army Campaigns Series, David W. Cameron
8 The August Offensive at Anzac 1915 #10 Australian Army Campaigns Series
David W. Cameron Australia Big Sky Publishing 2011 0987057472 / 9780987057471 Soft cover New Book 24.5 x 17.5 x 1.3 cm 
The August Offensive or 'Anzac Breakout' at Gallipoli saw some of the bloodiest fighting since the landing as Commonwealth and Turkish troops fought desperate battles at Lone Pine, German Officers' Trench, Turkish Quinn's, The Chessboard, The Nek, Chunuk Bair, The Farm, Hill Q and Hill 971. The offensive was designed to allow the allied forces to 'break out' of the Anzac beachhead below the Sari Bair Range; its end result was an enlarged prison for which they paid a high price in men and materials. The appalling nature of the terrain, the complex plan and the overly ambitious objectives set for the already fatigued troops made the 'fog of war' a crucial factor. Indeed, the August Offensive clearly demonstrates what happens when an overriding strategic objective does not take into account the tactical difficulties on the ground. This book is part of the Australian Army History Unit's Campaigns Series: well-researched, comprehensive and easy-to-read books on Australia's military campaigns. About the Author David Cameron completed his PhD in 1995 and was subsequently awarded an Australian Research Council (ARC) Post Doctoral Fellowship at the Australian National University, followed by an ARC QEII Fellowship at the University of Sydney. He has published a number of books on Australian military history and science and over sixty research papers in internationally peer reviewed journals.

Gallipoli: Command Under Fire, Edward J. Erickson
10 Gallipoli: Command Under Fire
Edward J. Erickson UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472806697 / 9781472806697 Hardcover New Book 
Unique among World War I campaigns, the fighting at Gallipoli brought together a modern amphibious assault and multi-national combined operations. It took place on a landscape littered with classical and romantic sites - just across the Dardanelles from the ruins of Homer's Troy. The campaign became, perhaps, the greatest 'what if' of the war. The concept behind it was grand strategy of the highest order, had it been successful it might have led to conditions ending the war two years early on Allied terms. This could have avoided the bloodletting of 1916-18, saved Tsarist Russia from revolution and side stepped the disastrous Treaty of Versailles - in effect, altering the course of the entire 20th century. This study is the first to focus on operational and campaign-level decisions and actions, which drove the conduct of the campaign. It departs from emotive first-hand accounts and offers a broader perspective of the large scale military planning and maneuvering involved in this monstrous struggle on the shores of European Turkey.

The First Blitz: Bombing London in the First World War, Ian Castle
12 The First Blitz: Bombing London in the First World War
Ian Castle UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472815297 / 9781472815293 Soft cover New Book 24.1 x 19.0 x 1.7 cm 
This book tells the story of Germany's strategic air offensive against Britain, and how it came to be neutralized. The first Zeppelin attack on London came in May 1915 - and with it came the birth of a new arena of warfare, the 'home front'. German airships attempted to raid London on 26 separate occasions between May 1915 and October 1917, but only reached the capital and bombed successfully on nine occasions. From May 1917 onwards, this theatre of war entered a new phase as German Gotha bombers set out to attack London in the first bomber raid. London's defences were again overhauled to face this new threat, providing the basis for Britain's defence during World War II. This comprehensive volume tells the story of the first aerial campaign in history, as the famed Zeppelins, and then the Gotha and the massive Staaken 'Giant' bombers waged war against the civilian population of London in the first ever 'Blitz'.

'One hundred years after the charge of the 4th Light Horse Brigade at Beersheba in October 1917...The Desert Column is based on the diaries that he kept through out the war. Published in 1932, it is one of Idriess' earliest works. Harry Chauvel noted in the foreword that it was the only book of the campaign that to his knowledge was "viewed entirely from the private soldier's point of view"...Idriess served as a sniper with the 5th Australian Light Horse. Enlisting in 1914, he began his diary "as we crowded the decks off Gallipoli" and he continued writing until returning to Australia...The diaries cover his experience of some of the war's major events from life in the trenches at Gallipoli to the battles at Romani and Beersheba. One of Idriess' strengths as a writer is his ability to place the reader at the scene of the action...The diaries reveal a keenness of observation and a descriptive and pacey style that Idriess would develop further in The Desert Column.' - The Australian War Memorial

With nearly two mounted divisions engaged against the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East for almost three years the Palestine Campaign was Australia's longest running militarily significant endeavour of the First World War after the Western Front. And yet apart from the battle of Beersheba, the Palestine Campaign receives little attention in Australia compared to Gallipoli and the Western Front. In contrast to the years of grinding trench warfare in France and Belgium, the Palestine Campaign was a war of relative movement and manoeuvre. Cavalry, including Australia'slight horse, played a prominent role, but it was a hard fought fully modern war, in which the latest military technologies and techniques were all used.

Forgotten Heroes: The Australian Waler Horse, Jill Mather
15 Forgotten Heroes: The Australian Waler Horse
Jill Mather Australia Boolarong Press 2016 1925236854 / 9781925236859 Soft cover New Book 23.0 x 16.0 x 0.7 cm 
The story of the famous Australian Waler horses is one that records with pride the remarkable journey this original stock horse made from a domestic animal to a war horse without equal. The Boer War and World War I saw thousands shipped overseas and only the advent of mechanization in 1940 saw the horse decline from military use. This book does not only sing its praises, but tracks its worldwide reputation as a horse without equal. You will read about the logistics and answers to questions such as the huge problems associated with the horse lines where hundreds of horses were picketed row after row in Egypt and in France; of the heavy horses that pulled the gun carriages and hauled ammunition and stores. So often forgotten, yet their contribution was vast. Yes, they were the Walers. Who supplied the saddlery? What happened to the refuse? Who looked after injured and sick horses? Where did the fodder come from? All this and much more as today's heritage horse owners tell their stories. This is a book you won't be able to put down and in the reading you will gain not only a great compassion for this brave horse, but you too will want to help preserve and protect the less than 1% of the decendants who exist in Australia today.

This remarkable but true collection has been gleaned from a large variety of World War I sources. It records the role animals played in environments which were completely alien to them. For all animals that served us so well, only a handful left their mark in history. This book not only commemorates the role our Australian and New Zealand horses played in a war which saw eight million animals perish in the bloodiest of battles, but preserves this collection of stories to be re-told almost one hundred years later. Here the author presents the deeds of the unknown, along side the well-known Waler horses, donkeys, mules and dogs. They were all heroes. This is a book you wont be able to put down and in the reading you will gain a great compassion for these brave animals.

Reconnaissance and Bomber Aces of World War 1 #123 Osprey Aircraft of the Aces, Jon Guttman
18 Reconnaissance and Bomber Aces of World War 1 #123 Osprey Aircraft of the Aces
Jon Guttman UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1782008012 / 9781782008019 Soft cover New Book 
This book profiles a wide variety of British, French, German, Austro-Hungarian and American aircraft, ranging from frontline stalwarts like the RE 8 and AR 1 to the swift Salmson 2A2 and the compact, fighter-like Halberstadt CL II. Oft-overshadowed by the fighters that either protected or threatened them, two-seater reconnaissance aircraft performed the oldest and most strategically vital aerial task of World War 1 - a task that required them to return with the intelligence they gathered at all costs. Bomber sorties were equally important and dangerous, and the very nature of both types of mission required going in harm's way. A surprising number of British, French and German two-seater teams managed to attain or exceed the five victories needed to achieve the acedom popularly associated with their single-seat nemeses, and in this book they receive their long-overdue recognition. Many high-scoring single-seat fighter aces also began their careers in two-seaters, particularly in the early stages of the conflict, and their exploits as either pilots or observers are detailed here too.

The Ottoman Defence Against the Anzac Landing: 25 April 1915 #16 Australian Army Campaigns Series, Mesut Uyar
20 The Ottoman Defence Against the Anzac Landing: 25 April 1915 #16 Australian Army Campaigns Series
Mesut Uyar Australia Big Sky Publishing 2015 1925275019 / 9781925275018 Soft cover New Book 24.5 x 17.5 x 1.2 cm 
The landing at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915 represents a defining moment, not only for Australia and New Zealand, but also for Turkey. However a detailed account of the landing from the Turkish perspective has yet to be published in English despite the 100 years that has elapsed since the first ANZACs scrambled ashore. Descriptions of the Ottoman forces such as the composition of units, the men who commanded them, their weapons, capabilities and reactions to the ANZAC invasion have generally remained undocumented or described in piecemeal fashion based on secondary sources. The lack of a Turkish perspective has made it almost impossible to construct a balanced account of the events of that fateful April day. The Ottoman Defence against the Anzac Landing: 25 April 1915 seeks to redress this imbalance, portraying the Ottoman experience based on previously unpublished Ottoman and Turkish sources. This meticulously researched volume describes the Ottoman Army in fascinating detail from its order of battle, unit structure and composition, training and doctrine to the weapons used against the ANZACs. Using Ottoman military documents, regimental war diaries, personal accounts and memoirs, author Mesut Uyar describes the unfolding campaign, unravelling its complexity and resolving many of the questions that have dogged accounts for a century. This valuable chronicle will enhance readers' understanding of the Ottoman war machine, its strengths and weaknesses and why it proved so successful in containing the Allied invasion. Detailed maps and photographs published for the first time add clarity and portray many of the men the ANZACs referred to with grudging respect as 'Johnny Turk'. About the Author: Mesut Uyar, a graduate of Turkish Military Academy, is an associate professor of Ottoman military history at the University of New South Wales, Canberra. A specialist in war studies and military history, he has published articles on Ottoman military and operations other than war.
