Royal Marines, 1956-84 by William Fowler

Book Description

As a "Special Forces" organization the Royal Marines and their supporting Commando-trained arms are unique. While other special forces trace their origins to World War I, the Royal Marines date back to 1664. Since then, they have seen action across the world, from their memorable role in the capture of Gibraltar in 1704 to their crucial involvement in World Wars I and II. This book examines the Royal Marines' service and training from the Suez Crisis of 1956, through to their involvement in Northern Ireland and the Falklands in the 1980s. Numerous illustrations, including photographs and color plates, detail the uniforms and equipment of the Marines.

Battle Story: Ypres by William Fowler Battle Story: Ypres, Hardback (August 2011)

The Belgian town of Ypres is now synonymous with the tragedy of the First World War. The First and Second Battles of Ypres saw some of the bloodiest fighting during the early days of the war, as well as the first use of poison gas by the Germans. If you want to understand what happened and why - read Battle Story.

Modern Weapons and Warfare by William Fowler Modern Weapons and Warfare, Hardback (June 2000)

Over the last 300 years, military tactics and equipment have changed dramatically. Find out why combat dress developed from coloured uniforms to camouflage gear in high-tech fabrics, and how the ultra modern stealth bomber evolved from the fragile-looking bi-plane.
