On Guerrilla Gardening: A Handbook ...
(Paperback)
Richard Reynolds
In 2008, just after the publication of this wonderful book, I attended a meeting of the Residents’ Society of Mayfair and St James’s. The author, a rather scruffy young Oxford graduate, was the guest speaker and I watched in admiration and disbelief as he managed to convince the audience of the benefits of anarchistic reclamation of urban space via ‘guerrilla gardening’! A novel take on the quintessentially English pastime. - Tristan.

Steel Inferno: I Panzer Corps in...
(Paperback)
Michael Reynolds
Comprising the veteran Leibstandarte and newly formed Hitlerjugend divisions, the 1st SS Panzer Corps provided the most tenacious opposition faced by the allied forces in Normandy. Initial counterattacks against the allied beachhead were followed by desperate resistance from increasingly beleagured and ground down Kampfgruppen , the gamble of the Mortain offensive and the final immolation of both divisions at Falaise. A former British general, Reynolds examines the alchemy of doctrine, training, equipment and personalities which produced such a formidable instrument of war for Hitler's Reich. - Sean.
