    Title: Ahed Tamimi
    Sub-title: A Girl Who Fought Back
    By (author): Manal Tamimi, Paul Heron, Paul Morris., Peter Lahti
    ISBN10-13: 9188441261 : 9789188441263
    In December 2017, a video clip went viral. Millions felt they had to watch a strange and uneven dispute. On one side were two male, fully armed, uniformed soldiers, and, on the other, two girls, dressed in every-day clothing. The soldiers belong to an occupation army from a foreign country. The girls tell them to leave the family’s garden. But the soldiers refuse to leave. One soldier tries to push away the youngest of the girls, 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi. Ahed reacts quickly, strikes back at the soldier, and slaps him. Four days later, the whole world is shocked to see Ahed sent to a military prison inside Israel, for that slap. When Ahed’s mother, Nariman complained, she was arrested and imprisoned too. This is the story of Ahed Tamimi. Who unintentionally, has become a world-wide symbol of self-esteem in the face of oppression. The book also reveals the plight of hundreds of child political prisoners held in Israeli military prisons. Ahed’s fate is that of a young Palestinian, but she gives courage and hope to anyone, who, anywhere in the world needs to find the strength to stand up against wrong-doing and call out: Stop! No more! As Ahed herself says: Right now, injustice is happening all across the world. We should extend our struggles to one another in order to end all of the world’s injustices. We are all victims of some kind of occupation. We won’t let anyone suffer alone.

    Title: Arnhem 1944 – An Epic Battle Revisited
    Sub-title: Volume 1: Tanks and Paratroopers
    By (author): Christer Bergstrom
    ISBN10-13: 918844144X : 9789188441447
    This is the ultimate book on Operation Market Garden, by internationally highly acclaimed military historian Christer Bergström. The indepth research made by the author has resulted in many myths and misconceptions being convincingly dispelled, backed up by detailed source notes. . In fact, these two volumes form a completely new image of the battle in the Netherlands in the autumn of 1944. It was Cornelius Ryan who in 1974 put Market Garden so to say on the map. However, it is obvious that he had no time to go through his vast collection of first-hand material on Market Garden before he so sadly passed away that same year. This is a mission that Christer Bergström has taken upon himself. A torrent of new books about Market Garden has been published since 1974, and many of its authors – all included – have done meritorious work in producing new research. But it appears quite obvious that nobody has previously tried to go through The Cornelius Ryan Collection in its entirety in order to publish to the public the important pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that Ryan produced but was never able to use in his book. But now it has been done, for the first time, in this book by Christer Bergström. Bergström has made a painstaking research work for several years, interviewing veterans and others who participated or witnessed the battle. He has gone through all relevant documents in all relevant archives in the UK, the USA, Germany and the Netherlands, and that material forms the basis of his book.
    Reviews:
    ”Well-written, captivating and detailed describes the brutal reality of war, which nevertheless does not have any negative impact on the dramatic description. A most exciting reading experience.” – Svensk Bibliotekstjänst (Library Serice), on Volume 1.
    "Volume One of Arnhem 1944 is a solid hit. Christer Bergström gets high marks for original research, comprehensive orders of battle, and interactive QR codes that immerse the reader into the heat of battle. This puts a whole new face on Market-Garden." - Andy Nunez, editor of Against the Odds Magazine.

    Title: Arnhem 1944 -- An Epic Battle Revisited
    Sub-title: Volume II: The Lost Victory -- September-October 1944
    By (author): Christer Bergstrom
    ISBN10-13: 9188441458 : 9789188441454
    All previous published accounts of Operation Market Garden end the main story with the evacuation of the British airborne troops from Oosterbeek – which obscures the fact that Operation Market Garden at that time was still to be regarded as essentially a great success. It was only due to the following development of events (including the battle at Overloon in October 1944) that meant that the strategic success of Operation Market Garden could not be utilized to end the war before the turn of the year 1944. This is a story that has never been told before, and which is described and analysed in detail in the concluding Volume 2 of Christer Bergström’s Arnhem 1944.
    Reviews:
    ”Military-historian Christer Bergström treats the source material with excellence and puts common images and myths of this battle into question. An extensive source and note list, photos, fact boxes, QR-coded film and sound clips supplement the text of this impressive work in two volumes about operation Market Garden. In summary – brilliant.” – Svensk Bibliotekstjänst (Library Serice), on Volume 2.

    By (author): Christer Bergstrom
    ISBN10-13: 9188441210 : 9789188441218
    Regarded as the standard work on the air war over the Eastern Front during World War II, Christer Bergström’s unique Black Cross/Red Star series covers the history of the air war on the Eastern Front in close detail, with the perspectives of both sides. Based on a close study of German and Russian archive material, as well as interviews with a large number of the airmen who participated in this aerial conflict, it has established itself as the main source on the air war on the Eastern Front. Black Cross/Red Star, Volume 4 will cover the air war along the entire Eastern Front during the period winter 1942/1943 through the spring of 1943, in great detail, with a balance between German and Soviet archive sources etc., and with many first-hand accounts. It will be of the same size as the other volumes, and it will also contain aircraft colour profiles.

    By (author): Christer Bergstrom
    ISBN10-13: 9188441547 : 9789188441546
    What was it like to be a pilot in Hitler’s Luftwaffe during World War II? In this book, the veterans themselves provide the answer. Christer Bergström enjoys a reputation as one of the greatest experts on Luftwaffe during World War II. During over 40 years of research, he has visited and made interviews with hundreds of Luftwaffe pilot veterans. Here he recounts what the veterans themselves told him – often things that don’t usually appear in ordinary books about the war. The book is richly illustrated with, among other things, never before published photos from the veterans’ private photo albums.

    Title: The Ardennes 1944-1945 Volume I
    Sub-title: Hitler's Winter Offensive Revisited
    By (author): Christer Bergstrom
    ISBN10-13: 918844175X : 9789188441751
    When Christer Bergstrom published the first English edition of his ground-breaking mammoth work The Ardennes 1944-1945: Hitler’s Winter Offensive in 2014, it hit the World War II community with the impact of an earthquake. Based upon tremendous research into primary sources and interviews with very many of the veterans, this book turned the previous image of the Battle of the Bulge completely upside-down. Although tearing apart many myths that surrounded this battle it has hardly received any negative criticism – with such scrutiny has the author treated the sources and source references. This book has been called the new main reference work on the battle. It still remains at the very edge of historical research on this epic battle. Especially the veterans from the Battle of the Bulge have praised the work as completely outstanding. This new Volume I deals with the background of and the build-up for the offensive, the surprising German strike, and the tremendous – and previously overlooked – German successes during the first period of the offensive. The previously covered-up German successes and American failures are presented and detailed and carefully analyzed.
    Reviews:
    ”At last a book which tells the truth about the Battle of the Bulge. It was a living hell!” – That was the reaction on the book by Cornelius French, a veteran from U.S. 6th Armored Division ”The Super Sixth” in the Battle of the Bulge. This reaction is the typical by the many veterans from both sides that have read the book. Among other overwhelmingly positive reviews, here is a small sample: ”The book is a tremendously accurate portrayal of a pivotal WWII winter battle in unforgiving forested terrain. Thank you very much for your effort.” – Review by U.S. veteran from the Battle of the Bulge Colonel John M. Nolan, 30th Infantry Division.
    ”Overall, Bergstrom’s book probably ranks as the single best volume, with the most meat, the most photos, the best ancillary material, and the best maps.” – Bill Stone at Stone & Stone Second World War Books, 21 December 2014.
    ”I have never read a more outstanding World War II book. The most interesting thing about the book is that some previous assertions have to be revised, such as that the Battle of the Bulge was over when the Patton relieved Bastogne. Other news is that Manteuffel considered the plan to be ’brilliant.’ There is much, much more of the same kind! Many myths are convincingly dispelled. It is amazing how the author has been able to obtain all this credible and detailed information.” – Lars Navander, lieutenant colonel and former Intelligence Officer at the Swedish Headquarters.

    Title: The Ardennes 1944-1945 Volume II
    Sub-title: Hitler’s Winter Offensive Revisited
    By (author): Christer Bergstrom
    ISBN10-13: 9188441768 : 9789188441768
    When Christer Bergström published the first English edition of his ground-breaking mammoth work The Ardennes 1944-1945: Hitler’s Winter Offensive in 2014, it hit the World War II community with the impact of an earthquake.

Although tearing apart many myths that surrounded this battle it has hardly received any negative criticism – with such scrutiny has the author treated the sources and source references. This book has been called the new main reference work on the battle. It still remains at the very edge of historical research on this epic battle. Especially the veterans from the Battle of the Bulge have praised the work as completely outstanding. The new Volume II deals with various turning points in the battle: First the failure of SS-Kampfgruppe Peiper, the Allied Air Force’s severing of the German supply lines around Christmas, and Patton’s counter-offensive. Next, the bitter defeat sustained by Patton’s Third U.S. Army in the tank battle at Bastogne, and several other German victories in tank battles that have previously been covered up in history writing, how the Luftwaffe actually gained air superiority, and the German offensive restarted in January 1945. Although the bloody battles in January 1945 cost both sides higher losses per day than in December 1944, they have been neglected in previous history writing. Here they are described in detail. The reason why the Ardennes Offensive failed is discussed, as are its quite significant repercussions.
