Jeep goes to war by Will Fowler( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and Czech and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Jeep is legendary--its name evolves images of rugged, off-road adventure and un-equalled military capability. Ruggedly glamorous and supremely functional, the Jeep has played a vital role in military history since the Second World War. The Jeep was designed to fill a need: it was built in 1940 according to specifications for a new General Purpose (G.P.--hence "Jeep") four-wheel drive, three-seater, with room for a .30-caliber machine-gun mount, a payload capacity of 600 pounds, and a top speed of about 50 mph. So successful was its design that the Jeep became the world's number-one military car, in various guises, for the next half-century. Written by an expert in military affairs, Jeep goes to War is a pictorial and historical survey of the celebrated Jeep in action, featuring more than 100 illustrations throughout and packed with information and specifications of its many adaptations. From Normandy to North Africa, from World War II to the Gulf War, this authoritative account provides readers of all ages with a fascinating, on-the-scene look at the Jeep's contributions to military maneuverability

Operation Barras : the SAS rescue mission, Sierra Leone 2000 by Will Fowler( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In May 2000 the British government had sent a military and naval task force to the troubled west African state of Sierra Leone to bolster the United Nations operation that was attempting to restore peace and stability following a savage and brutal civil war." "It was a success, but the country remained unstable and so a British training team remained to assist the Sierra Leone government. It was a challenging and potentially risky assignment and on 25 August 2000 the dangers were suddenly highlighted by the capture of eleven British soldiers by a notorious militia gang. The so-called 'West Side Boys' had subjected their part of the country to a long reign of terror, murdering, kidnapping and mutilating anyone who stood in their way."--Jacket

Barbarossa : the first 7 days by Will Fowler( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 22 June 1941 The Germans launched their long-expected invasion of the Soviet Union. Codenamed ""Operation Barbarossa," after the famous 12th century crusading emperor, what followed was perhaps the greatest clash of arms the world has ever witnessed. With the aid of specially commissioned maps, Barbarossa: The First 7 Days describes the dramatic history of the first week of the invasion of the Soviet Union. The book begins with an extensive overview of the Wehrmacht's success up until 1941, followed by chapters outlining the German High Command's plan of attack and the defensive dispositions of the Soviet forces. The author goes on to describe the opening bombardment, followed by detailed accounts of the three Army Groups' fortunes in the first week of the campaign. The book finishes with an analysis of the remainder of the campaign and the ultimate failure of the Germans to destroy the Red Army and capture Moscow. With first hand accounts from both sides, vivid photographs, detailed fact boxes, and specially commissioned maps of the German advance and the Soviet defensive actions, Barbarossa: The First 7 Days is a comprehensive examination of the first week of the four-year war on the Eastern Front
