Midway, 1942 by Mark Healy

Book Description

Osprey's Campaign title for one of the most important naval battles in the history of World War II (1939-1945), Midway, which was fought barely six months after the devastating Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The badly damaged USS Yorktown was repaired in just 48 hours and with Enterprise and Hornet set out to meet the Japanese. In a battle marked by great heroism on both sides the United States dealt a devastating blow to the Imperial Japanese Fleet sinking four of her most powerful carriers. In this superbly illustrated volume Mark Healy tells the whole story; espionage, daring, luck and extreme heroism. A fascinating read supplemented by genuine photographs of the battle in progress.

Battle Story Kursk 1943 by Mark Healy Battle Story Kursk 1943, Hardback (September 2012)

* In July 1943, Hitler launched Operation Zitadelle, the last German offensive on the Eastern Front. This title gives a clear, concise account of those dramatic days in 1943, supported by a timeline of events and orders of battle, and illustrated with over 50 photographs.

Persuasion by Mark Healy Persuasion, Paperback (December 2010)

Based on Jane Austen's treasured novel, this faithful but inventive adaptation of Persuasion was premiered at the Northcott Theatre, Exeter.

Sense and Sensibility by Mark Healy Sense and Sensibility, Paperback (December 2010)

In "Sense and Sensibility" and "Persuasion", financial troubles and straitened circumstances herald the onslaught of relationship heartache and broken engagements for the heroines. Will true love and marital bliss prevail for Anne Elliot and Captain Wenworth in Bath, and the Dashwood sisters (one all sense and the other all sensibility) in Devon?

Zitadelle by Mark Healy Zitadelle, Paperback (May 2010)

Few battles attract such interest as does the Battle of Kursk. Operation Zitadelle - the code name given by Hitler to the Wehrmacht's last offensive on the Eastern Front in July 1943 - has acquired an almost mythic status as one of the greatest clashes of armour in the history of warfare. This title focuses on this German operation.
