It is a new dawn for the C-in-C, whose ascension to power is the result of the assassination of the reformist military head of state, General Mutallah Mohammed, who once promised to transfer power to a democratic government and failed. As a handful of military leaders meet in a private guest house, it soon becomes evident there are cracks in the military foundation and that a palace coup is boiling just beneath the surface. The leaders know they must choose who will be the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. But the question remains-who? As soon as General Obasanjo becomes the new president, the nation is plunged into chaos. As a revolution brings masses to the streets who destroy and paralyze all government institutions, Obas realizes he must terminate the ruthlessness of the mafia by appointing the no-nonsense, second-in-command military ruler, Brigadier 'Taju Agbon, to power. But all of Obas's efforts are in vain as more intolerants emerge, the upper class is attacked, and corrupt politicians are robbed of their wealth and properties. In this action-packed tale full of surprising twists and turns, the reign of the last dictator precariously hangs in the balance as he attempts to rule over a nation in jeopardy.

'Unwarranted Influence' were two pertinent words contained in President Eisenhower's departing speech in January 1961. Tom Law's latest book is about contemporary wars and the evil of the armaments industries where profit looms large over human lives. But mostly, it is about the urgent need to eliminate nuclear weapons. There have been many organisations across the world with the same intent but always to be frustrated by the superpowers and their generals! Tom is vehement in his argument that change will only come about by the dedicated application of international humanitarian law at the United Nations General Assembly. International law and a constant 'demand' by people is the best way forward to bring this goal to fruition. Time is short if humanity is to avert some final catastrophic conflict ending civilisation upon the planet.

"My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.†? – Ronald Reagan, 1984. With these words, spoken as a sound check to a radio broadcast, President Reagan came dangerously close to igniting the long-simmering Cold War. Although Soviet forces were placed on alert following reports of this comment, the full-scale conflict between the West and the Soviet Bloc did not break out. Cold War Gone Hot, the latest companion volume for Force on Force, looks at the 44-year history of the Cold War and asks: "what if?†? With the orders of battle, vehicle stats and missions included in this volume, Force on Force players can simulate the advance of Soviet tanks across Western Europe, a thrust into Alaska, or any number of other plausible scenarios where history took a slightly different path.

Despite being the inventor of the tank and responsible for campaign-winning tactics, by the start of the Second World War the United Kingdom had fallen well behind other nations in the design and build of armoured vehicles. Here, William Suttie uncovers the history of tank design from a government perspective and the decisions and failures that led to that state of affairs, and details the formation of the Fighting Vehicles Research and Development Establishment at Chertsey. Known as the Tank Factory, the Chertsey establishment sought to ensure that the United Kingdom became world-leading in the field of military vehicle research and design, and that the British Army would never be underprotected or outgunned again. Drawing on unpublished sources and photographs, this fascinating book reveals the establishment’s history, its groundbreaking research and its inventions and designs, including first-hand insights from those who worked there.

The Army Catering Corps only existed for 52 years. During that period, it became one of the most progressive and prestigious service corps in the British Army. The fast changing second half of the 20th Century saw the Corps become a victim of its’ own success and became easy prey when the time arrived to save public money and implement cutbacks. This is the story of just one man who took up his career as a military chef in the second half of the 20th Century. This is the real life encounters from a boy to manhood, encountering a full career in the British Army with the good times, sad times and the harsh encounters of life, from the late 1950s' until recent times.

Although only formed in December 1992, The Light Dragoons look back to a history that began in the days of the first Jacobite rebellion. In 1922 a reduction in the Armys strength saw the amalgamation of four regiments of Hussars into the 13th/18th Hussars and the 15th/19th Hussars. Now they too have been amalgamated, with a name that reverts to the titles of the four original regiments in the eighteenth century. Allan Mallinson, the novelist and a former commanding officer of the 13th/18th Hussars, not only follows with admirable clarity and dexterity the fortunes of The Light Dragoons predecessors in this new edition, but describes the activities of the new regiment up to the minute. It is a crowded canvas which reflects much of the last two hundred and seventy years of British history. No campaign of significance has been fought in that time without the participation of one or more of the Regiments. Three, for instance, fought in the Peninsula, one in the Crimea and three in South Africa.In the twentieth century they gained fresh honours in both World Wars and, since 1945, have been fully involved in Britains withdrawal from Empire, the Cold War, United Nations peacekeeping and Iraq and Afghanistan.The new Postscript gives the reader a fine account of what wars in Bosnia and Iraq have involved for the Regiment and the men who serve in it and this updated history is a superb snapshot of life in war and peace for a British armoured reconnaissance regiment. Light Dragoons takes its place among the classics of this genre such as Sir Arthur Bryants Jackets of Green and Rudyard Kiplings account of the Irish Guards in the Great War.

The Royal Dragoon Guards have a long and distinguished history dating from 1685. Originally raised as regiments of horse and dragoons, they were subsequently designated as the 4th, 5th and 7th Dragoon Guards and the 6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons. They fought in all of Britain's major wars from the late 17th century onwards, charging at Blenheim with Marlborough's cavalry, at Waterloo with the Union Brigade, and at Balaklava with the Heavy Brigade. In the 19th century, they also saw service in India and Africa. All four regiments served in France and Flanders during the First World War and one regiment fired the first British shot on the Western Front. They were then amalgamated into two regiments – the 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards and the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards. Both regiments were mechanised shortly before the Second World War, in which they played a leading role in the D-Day landings. In 1992, the two regiments amalgamated again to form the Royal Dragoon Guards. Recent conflicts have taken the regiment to Iraq and Afghanistan, continuing a record of operational service covering more than three centuries. This regimental history of the Dragoons tells their story as it played out across the centuries, exploring their role in both major and minor conflicts of the last 300 years. The title examines the development of the regiment up to the present day and highlights key figures across its history. The text is supported throughout with photographs and illustrations.

Fighting an elusive and dangerous enemy far from home, the British army in Afghanistan has been involved in asymmetric warfare for the best part of a decade. The eight-year series of deployments jointly known as Operation Herrick, alongside US and other NATO contingents within the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, have been the longest continuous combat commitment of the British Army since World War II. Together with Operation 'Telic' in Iraq, which immediately preceded and overlapped with it, this conflict has shaped the British Army for a generation. Enemy threats have diversified and evolved, with a consequent evolution of British doctrine, tactics and equipment. This book provides a detailed analysis of those specifics within a clear, connected account of the course of the war in Helmand, operation by operation.
