Qadesh, 1300BC by Mark Healy

Book Description

The earliest battle in history which can be reconstructed in detail, Qadesh (c. 1300 BC) pitted the two great warriors of the age against each other, Muwatallish of Hatti and the great warrior-Pharaoh Rameses II. With the Hittites gaining the initial advantage, all seemed lost until Rameses himself led his personal followers into the fray. However, in spite of the appearance of Egyptian reinforcements, the bravery of the pharaoh and the tactically superior showing of the Egyptian chariotry, the dislocation of his army frustrated the Pharaoh's wider strategic aspirations. Mark Healy recounts the course of this key battle, which could so easily have gone either way.

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.
