It is a shocking and compelling s…

Empires at War A Short History of Modern Asia Since World War II

Empires at War gives a dramatic narrative account of how “Modern Asia” came into being. Ranging over the whole of Asia, from Japan to Pakistan, the modern history of this important region is placed in the context of the struggle between America and the Soviet Union. Francis Pike shows that America’s domination of post-war Asia was a continuation of a 100-year competition for power in the region.

A Military Government in Exile: The Polish Government in Exile 1939-1945, A Study of Discontent (Helion Studies in Military History)

This work examines the nature of the relationship between the British Government and the Polish Government-in-Exile, 1939-1945. The relationship was extremely difficult owing to the extremity of the time and the situations of the two governments. Before 1939 there had been little contact between Poland and Britain, however between 1939 and 1945 the two countries were joined in a common desire for the military defeat of Germany: this was virtually the only common goal that the two governments …
