This is one of the new Icon titles from Haynes. Originally published in the classic manual size, this compact format will appeal to trade outlets and gift markets. Born in the turbulent opening years of the Second World War the Churchill tank's ability to take punishment and still fight on was as legendary as its capacity to climb impossible slopes. Whether in support of beach landings or in a struggle across well-defended terrain, the Churchill became the Swiss Army knife of armoured vehicles - a tank with many adaptations and attachments. Fully illustrated with more than 300 rare photographs and illustrations, as well as information on recent restorations, this book provides revealing insights into how this iconic British tank was built and operated.
The emergence of the submarine in 1914 as a major strategic weapon was swift and unexpected. On 5 September 1914, a British light cruiser, HMS Pathfinder, was sunk by the German submarine U-21, becoming the first victim of a free-fired torpedo. The basis of naval warfare had been changed forever. Submarines offers a highly illustrated guide to all the main classes of submarines to be used in naval warfare from the beginning of World War I to the present day. Divided by era, campaign and country, the book includes sections on submarine forces in 1914, technical developments during the 1930s, the Atlantic convoy war during World War II, Soviet submarine development during the Cold War, the introduction of nuclear-powered submarines, submarines of the Falklands War, and the latest ICBM carriers. Special emphasis is given to the U-Boats of World War II, arranged by flotilla. All the main types are included, from the World War I-era German U-1 and British F-class, through the Type VII U-boats and US Gato class of World War II, and coming up-to-date with the latest missile submarines, such as HMS Astute, USS Virginia, the Russian Borei class, the Chinese Shang class and the INS Arihant.

Carrying on the story of Stagecoach, this volume looks at the company's continuing growth across the UK and its various overseas ventures, which took it to Hong Kong, mainland Europe, the USA, Canada and New Zealand. In addition to its ongoing expansion and the continual upgrading of its bus and coach fleet, it also introduced numerous innovative ventures including Magicbus, megabus and Stagecoach Gold, all of which heralded new travel concepts across the UK and overseas. No doubt, in the years ahead, Stagecoach will continue to expand whenever, and wherever, opportunities arise, and also continue in its bid to further minimise the impact of its operations on the environment with an increase in alternatively powered buses, including hybrid, gas, hydrogen and electric. Here, Keith A. Jenkinson brings the Stagecoach story up to the present time, leaving no stone unturned and illustrating it fully with colour photography.

From the first steam trains to the high-speed bullet locomotives of today, this is a glorious celebration of the history of trains and railways. Take a look around the engines of some of the most well-known locomotives in British history, such as the Rocket, the Mallard, and the Javelin, along with famous international trains such as India's Palace on Wheels and America's Thatcher Perkins. Trace the routes of the most important rail routes in history, from the continent-spanning Union-Pacific Railroad and Trans-Siberian Railway to the routes of iconic locomotives such as the Orient Express, the Blue Train, and the Eurostar. And discover the stories of the pioneers of train and track - including George and Robert Stephenson; Isambard Kingdom Brunel, creator of the Great Western Railway; and Fulgence Bienvenue, designer of the Paris Metro. Rounded out by comprehensive photographic catalogues of the most important trains from each period, The Train Book is the perfect gift for any train enthusiast.
Though personally remembered by very few people, the interwar period was a fascinating time for railway enthusiasts, with the colourful liveries of the pre-Grouping companies allowing for a wide variety of interesting markings in the run-up to Grouping in 1923. This marked the beginning of the era of the Big Four, with the 1930s being a decade of innovation as, among other things, the LNER and LMS vied for supremacy over streamlining and a desire for speed. This glamorous period was, unfortunately, cut short by the Second World War. With a fascinating array of historic images, Richard Denny offers a wonderfully evocative window into a unique and exciting time in Britain's railway history.
