R3,752 Discovery Miles 37 520 Out of stock

Since the creation of the standing army in 1661, when each regiment was known by the name of its current colonel, there have been many reforms and rationalizations of the British army. From 31 cavalry regiments and 113 infantry regiments in 1881, at the time of this title's first publication in 1988, the army had reduced to just 16 regiments of armour and 39 regiments of infantry through processes of absorption and amalgamation. The Handbook of British Regiments provides insight into the lineage and history of the approximately 85 regiments and corps which formed the British army towards the end of the 1980s. Comprehensive in coverage, each has a separate entry giving factual details in a layout standardized for easy comparison, including current title, colonel-in-chief, uniform and history, amongst others. A key title amongst Routledge reference reissues, this handbook provides an accessible guide to specialists as well as lay enthusiasts, and illustrates a sense of the continuity and inherited tradition of each regiment and corps.

The book's main strength lies in the detail it gives of armament and associated ammunition capabilities, and of the sensors and other electronics required for the weapons to be used effectively. A key title amongst Routledge reference reissues, Christopher Chant's important work will be of great value to students and professionals requiring a comprehensive and accessible reference guide, as well as to weapons 'buffs'.

The Encyclopedia of Codenames of World War II (Hardcover): Christopher Chant The Encyclopedia of Codenames of World War II (Hardcover)
Christopher Chant
R3,753 Discovery Miles 37 530 Out of stock

Codenames were a vital feature of World War II, serving as mental shorthand for those in the know, and obscuring the issues for those who were not. Codenames were used from the highest level, in the planning of grand strategic moves affecting the conduct of the whole war, to the lowest command divisions, in the conduct of small-scale tactical operations. This encyclopedia, first published in 1986, removes the mystery surrounding many of the important code names from the era. With around 3,000 entries drawn from all sides - the U.K., U.S.A., Germany, the U.S.S.R. and Japan - Christopher Chant's work provides a uniquely comprehensive and full overview of major operations, names and code words. Thorough and exciting, this key reference reissue is an exceptionally valuable resource for military historians, enthusiasts and general readers with an interest in World War II.

A Century of Triumph - The History of Aviation (Hardcover): Christopher Chant A Century of Triumph - The History of Aviation (Hardcover)
Christopher Chant; Illustrated by John Batchelor

On December 17, 1903, on the windswept beaches of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Orville Wright piloted the world's first powered flight, in one of the most famous moments in history. Within a few short years, airplanes of various designs were lifting into the air over Europe and America. Soon, the entire world was caught up in the fevered advance of flight -- and airplanes, Zeppelins, autogyros, and helicopters were making the world a much smaller place.

To celebrate the first full century of powered flight, the National Aviation Hall of Fame and the Aviation World's Fair, together with World of Wings, Inc., have joined forces with premier aviation historian Christopher Chant and world-famous illustrator John Batchelor to showcase an astonishing march of progress. From the early experiments of gliderman Otto Lilienthal to the moon walk of Neil Armstrong, it has indeed been A Century of Triumph. Batchelor's over two hundred detailed illustrations, including dozens of cutaway images of aircraft structure, are works of art worthy of the design achievements of the greatest aircraft engineers. From the golden age of Zeppelins to the extreme design experiments of World War II to the fierce modernism of supersonic fighter jets, A Century of Triumph demonstrates the full richness of mankind's flying craft. Batchelor has been able to gain exclusive access to such cutting-edge aircraft as the Lockheed Martin Joint Strike Fighter, revealed to the public in A Century of Triumph for the first time ever. In addition to Batchelor's illustrations, the book features never-before-published vintage watercolor posters of pre-World War I aviation races and a treasure trove of photographs.

Chant's text combines full histories of the planes themselves with biographical essays on some of the great figures of the twentieth century: the Barnstormers, Igor Sikorsky, Amelia Earhart, Chuck Yeager, and the Apollo XVII astronauts, among others. Special photo essays focus on the planes of the Luftwaffe, the strangest planes of World War II, the early age of jets, the great World War I planes of the Caproni company, and the fighter jets of the 1960s. Together, Chant and Batchelor tell the story of flight's near successes, dismal failures, and great accomplishments. A Century of Triumph is a visual and factual feast for anyone who marvels at the majesty of flying.
