by Peter Abbott, Armies In East Africa 1914 18 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Armies In East Africa 1914 18 books, One of the least-published campaigns of World War I (1914-1918) was that fought in East Africa by forces of colonial troops – British Empire, Belgian, Portuguese and German. Short of resources, many European, African and Indian soldiers recorded epics of endurance as they hunted the outnumbered but brilliantly led German colonial forces across a disease-ridden wilderness. The achievements of Paul von Lettow Vorbeck – the last German commander in the field to lay down his arms – brought him fame and respect comparable to that won by Rommel in World War II. The events and the forces are described here in concise detail, and illustrated with rare photographs and striking colour artworks.

by Ronald Pawly, The Belgian Army In World War I Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Belgian Army In World War I books, While small in numbers, the Belgian Army played a vital role in World War I (1939-1945) that is often overlooked. Germany's invasion of neutral Belgium, which led Britain to declare war in August 1914, should have been swift and fierce yet the unexpected heroic defense, against great odds, of Belgian fortresses, frustrated the German Schlieffen Plan for a thrust to Paris and a lightning victory. The plucky Belgian resistance proved successful in buying time for French and British troops to mobilize and report to the front, where the Belgians would then go on to fight, stubbornly defending the northern end of the Allied trench line for the rest of the war. Discover the story of this determined Army, from their organization and commanders, to their uniforms and equipment. The only main combatant army of World War I not previously covered by Osprey, this volume will be an important addition to any enthusiast's collection, accompanied by detailed artwork and archive photographs.

by Roger A. Beaumont, Joint Military Operations Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Joint Military Operations books, This short history is the first to offer a broad and selective survey of the phenomenon known as "jointness"--the combined operations of land and naval forces until the twentieth century and especially of land, sea, and air forces since World War II. Touching on the operational, doctrinal, and political dimensions, the survey ranges from the ancient Mediterranean to recent times while focusing on European and American experiences from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries, including Desert Storm. Wide-ranging cases illustrate trends and patterns of "jointness" and define the central problem of friction. The selective bibliography provides a wide array of sources. Maps and appendices further enrich this important history.
