By 1920 the Red Army of Russia fielded an overwhelming array of armored cars, armored trains and tank detachments. These armored units played an important part in consolidating the newly won Bolshevik empire in the early 1920s; as a consequence of the fact that railways were the strategic arteries that essentially controlled Russia, armored trains have never played such a significant role in military history as they did in the Russian Civil War. This title details the management, construction, repair, personnel, training and combat of the Red Army's armored units on all fronts, including such famous vehicles as Trotsky's armored train.

From the steam-rolling success of the Japanese as they invaded Manchuria until the eventual Japanese defeat, Rottman provides a battle history of the Japanese tank units as they faced the Chinese, the Russians, the British and the Americans.

The Russian Civil War is the most important civil war of the 20th century, changing the lives of over half a billion people and dramatically shaping the geography of Europe, the Far East and Asia. Over a four-year period 20 countries battled in a crucible that would give birth to Communist revolutions worldwide and the Cold War. David Bullock offers a fresh perspective on this conflict, examining the forces involved, as well as the fascinating intervention by Allied forces. At the dawn of modern war, as cavalry duelled with tanks, aircraft, and armoured trains along shifting fronts, this title tells a military story enacted against a backdrop of political and social revolution and within the context of immense human loss. The reader cannot fail to be moved by the rare photographs and illustrations that make this history come alive.

The Czech Legion was not just a single military unit, but a volunteer army that fielded up to 100,000 troops on the Allied side on all three main fronts in World War I (1914-1918). Since only the defeat of Austro-Hungary and Germany offered any hope of Czech national independence, they were amongst the most motivated and steadfast of the Allied forces in France, the Italian Alps and Russia. In one of the most colorful and extraordinary episodes of the 20th century they fought their way across Russia in the aftermath of the Bolshevik Revolution, captured the Russian national gold reserves in Kazan, and used this as a bargaining chip to force the Bolsheviks to allow them to return home, in an epic journey closely followed by the Western press. The Legion played a central part in the foundation of the Czechoslovakian nation with the leaders of independent Czechoslovakia - Masaryk, Benes and Stefanik - all emerging from the Legion's ranks. Today the Legion is recognized as the founding fathers of Czech nationhood and are idolized by the US Czech community as a result.

London, 1891. Less than three weeks after the last Whitechapel murder, 25-year-old Thomas Cutbush is committed to Broadmoor for savage knife attacks on two girls. The arresting officer, Inspector William Race, intrigued by the wealth of connections with the infamous unsolved murders in the East End, starts to wonder whether he has, in fact, arrested Jack the Ripper himself. Ignored by his superiors, and in despair, the detective eventually decides to take his story to the press. Race’s actions unleash the biggest journalistic investigation of the time. The Sun puts its star reporters on the trail of Thomas Cutbush, and the startling new evidence and compelling eyewitness testimonies they gather set up a sensational scoop. The Man Who Would Be Jack introduces the truly incredible story of the investigation conducted by The Sun and Inspector Race. With unprecedented access to long-hidden records, David Bullock brings to light findings that would, at last, expose the truth of one of the world’s most tantalising mysteries.

80 Jahre nach dem Erscheinen von Trotzkis Buch über die Februarrevolution und 30 Jahre nach dem Erscheinen der letzten vollständigen Ausgabe der 'Geschichte der Russischen Revolution' ist mit dieser Neuausgabe eines der bedeutendsten historischen Werke des 20. Jahrhunderts jetzt dem Lesepublikum wieder zugänglich. Auch 20 Jahre nach dem Zusammenbruch der Sowjetunion sind trotz zahlreicher historischer Detailstudien weder der Charakter der Oktoberrevolution noch die Degeneration und das Scheitern des aus ihr hervorgegangenen Arbeiterstaates einer breiteren Öffentlichkeit klar, obwohl die Existenz der Sowjetunion die gesamte Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts in einem hohen Ausmaß geprägt hat. Nur die Schriften Trotzkis – das gilt vor allem für die beiden Bände zur 'Geschichte der Russischen Revolution', die 'Permanente Revolution' und die 'Verratene Revolution'– ermöglichen ein grundlegendes Verständnis des Aufstiegs, der Degeneration und des Zusammenbruchs der Sowjetunion und damit der Weltlage des gesamten vorigen Jahrhunderts. Aber Trotzkis Geschichte der Russischen Revolution ist nicht nur ein geniales Werk der marxistischen Geschichtsschreibung, sondern gleichzeitig ein Stück Weltliteratur, das so manches fiktive Werk in den Schatten stellt. Der Autor beschreibt vom heutigen Standpunkt aus lange zurückliegende Ereignisse und Personen, aber seine Beschreibungen sind ungeheuer spannend und kurzweilig. In vielen Artikeln, Büchern oder Briefen finden sich Würdigungen von Trotzki als Schriftsteller. Das Werk liegt in der hervorragenden Übersetzung von Alexandra Ramm-Pfemfert vor.
