    Book - ST VALERY THE IMPOSSIBLE ODDS

    £10.99
    ST VALERY THE IMPOSSIBLE ODDS Edited By Bill Innes
    The gallant rearguard action which led to the capture of the 51st Highland Division at St Valery-en-Caux (two weeks after the famous evacuation of the main British army from Dunkirk) may have burned itself into the consciousness of an older generation of Scots but has never been given the wider recognition it deserves. The introduction to this collection of first-hand accounts re-examines that fateful chain of events in 1940 and reassesses some of the myths that have grown up in the intervening years.

  • Book - A TIME OF TYRANTS

    Book - A TIME OF TYRANTS

    £12.99
    A TIME OF TYRANTS by Trevor Royle
    In this book acclaimed military historian Trevor Royle examines Scotland's role in the second world war from a wide range of perspectives.
    The country's geographical position gave it great strategic importance for importing war material and reinforcements, for conducting naval and aerial operations and for training regular and specialist forces. The role played by women was also essential to the war effort: for the first time they were conscripted and worked on the land, in forestry and in munitions factories.
    In addition to the importance military aspects - the exploits of the army's renowned 15th Scottish, 51st Highland and Lowland Divisions in Europe and North Africa and the role played by the RAF and the Royal Navy from Scottish bases - Scotland was also vital as an industrial powerhouse and acted as the nation's larder.
    Based on previously unseen archives in the National Records of Scotland, A Time of Tyrants is the first comprehensive history of the unique part played by Scotland and the Scots in the global war to defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.

  • Book - The Road to Kohima

    Book - The Road to Kohima

    £12.99
    During the battle of Kohima, which raged from April to June 1944, more than 3,000 soldiers died. Not one house was left standing when the armies left, the British pursuing the Japanese back to Burma.
    Mow for teh first time, we can hear this story from the Nag perspective. The people of Kohima, the capital of Nagaland, lost their homes and their lives helping the British defend the land. Many acted as porters and stretcher bearers and some even fought alongside the British. Many British said afterwards that they owed their victory to the Nagas.
    Through personal stories, the first part of The Road to Kohima illustrates the experience of those caught up in the fighting and tells both how their lives were affected by it and how village life was pieced back together after the battle ended. Context to these poignant tales is provided in the second part of the book, which details the military events in Kohima and the Naga participation as soldiers. Together the two halves form a marvellous historical document for all who are interested in the Second World War and military history generally.

  • Book - Of Stone and Sky

    Book - Of Stone and Sky

    £16.99
    After shepherd Colvin Munro disappears, a mysterious trail of his twelve possessions leads into the Cairngorms mountains. His foster sister Mo and prodigal brother Sorley are driven to discover the forces that led to his disappearance. As a former church minister, and current owner of the Ferryman Inn, Mo thinks she knows everyone's story: Colvin's Traveller mother, alcoholic war-scarred father, Bolivian wife, musician daughter, bird-obsessed son, his friends and foes. Sorley, returning home from his life in the City, brings unsettling revelations.
    The story circles out to embrace the entire community, its history and the landscapes that shapes them. Spanning almost a century, this novel is a paean to the connections between people, their land and way of life. A profound mystery, a political manifesto, and a passionate story of love, loss and redemption, it is shot through with wisdom and humour.
