Описание: It should have been the battle that ended Richard of York's rebellions. With the Yorkists politically destroyed and the estates confiscated, all that remained was to carry out the punishment for treason - death. On 10 July 1460 King Henry VI and his army waited for the Yorkists in a heavily fortified camp in fields outside Northampton. However, they did not count on the treachery of Lord Grey of Ruthin.For the first time, this is the full story of the Battle of Northampton which took place during the turbulent period now known as the Wars of the Roses. It was the first and only time that a fortified camp was assaulted and was the last time protracted negotiations took place before a battle. In its immediate aftermath the House of York laid claim to the throne of England for the first time and so began the bloodiest phase of the Wars of the Roses - the war of succession. As well as the battle itself, the book looks at Northamptonshire's medieval history and its involvement in the Wars of the Roses.Northampton today is, frankly, an under-appreciated, often overlooked, town. The joke is, people only know of Northamptonshire because they shoot through it on the M1: they note the name of the county town on notice boards from exits 15 to 16. But this was, once, one of the great centres of power and influence in early and Medieval England. It was also, with Oxford, home to one of the first two universities in the land. Mike Ingram brings fine scholastic research to play, in reminding people of Northampton's past importance - strategic and social. His energetic prose gives colour to every page, while his revelations intrigue and entertain. He helps us appreciate why one of the great battles of English history took place in this Midland town, and he skilfully resurrects the generals and ordinary soldiers who clashed in an engagement that helped lay the foundations of this nation's past. You don't need to be a champion or resident of Northampton to appreciate this overdue appraisal of the battle that bears its name. This is a book that everyone who loves History - particularly the almost forgotten kind - will savour. Earl Charles Spencer

Описание: An illustrated examination of what was arguably the best infantry weapon during World War II: the German MP40. Of all infantry weapons conceived during the 20th century, few were as important as the submachine gun, a weapon designed specifically for close-quarter combat. The MP40 'Schmeisser' gives a detailed history of the development and use of this infamous German machine pistol. Heavily illustrated with archival photography, cutaway drawings, and 12 detailed artworks, this account follows the MP40 from its genesis in preliminary World War I designs through its use by the German forces on all fronts and its postwar service with other nations. Comprehensive appendices include full specifications and extensive comparisons with contemporary Allied weapons.
