    “This book is highly recommended to anyone with an interest in the Italian campaign of the Second World War, and the use of armor in that war.”—British Military History   The battles fought between the Allied armies and the German Wehrmacht at Monte Cassino in 1944 were key episodes in the protracted Italian campaign, and the eventual Allied victory was a decisive step in the wider war to liberate Europe from German occupation. Much has been written about Cassino, but few books have chosen to tell the story through photographs—to give a visual insight into the fighting and the forces involved, the conditions in which they fought, and the landscape around the Monte Cassino abbey which became a battlefield. That is why Jeffrey Plowman’s photographic history is of such value.   Using almost 200 wartime images, many of which have not been published before, he gives a graphic impression of the realities of the fighting as it was experienced by the troops on the ground. He focuses on the tanks—the array of armored vehicles deployed by both sides which played a critical role. This aspect of Cassino has rarely been covered in such detail and in such a vivid way.   The book will be of special interest to modelers and historians of armored warfare, but it will also appeal to readers who have a more general interest in the Italian campaign.   “The amount of information provided for each photograph is exceptional . . . I commend the author for building such a comprehensive portfolio of fascinating images.”—Walking the Battlefields

    “This unique memoir tells the story of one of the field-grade officers whose martial skills sustained the Third Reich against a world in arms.”—Library Journal  Panzer Commander is one of the classic memoirs of the Second World War. A professional soldier, Hans von Luck joined the Panzerwaffe in its earliest days, where he served under Erwin Rommel, and went on to fight in the Blitzkrieg in Poland, France and the Soviet Union. He then served with the Afrika Korps in the Western Desert and tells of the sometimes chivalrous relationship with the British 8th Army.   After the collapse in Africa, he returned to Europe and fought throughout the Normandy campaign and was responsible for the failure of the British breakout attempt, Operation Goodwood. He then took part in the final desperate battles on the Eastern Front. Captured by the Soviets at the end of the war, he was held for five years in a prison camp in the Caucasus. After the war, he formed friendships with those who had been his opponents during it, including Major John Howard, who had led the capture of Pegasus Bridge in Normandy.   With a new preface by the author’s widow, this unique and valuable account of one man’s war and its aftermath is required reading for all those interested in the Second World War.   “One of the few books that MUST be part of any library . . . It is vivid and engaging. It paints the finest of verbal pictures and it does so without demonstrations of ego . . . it is one of the building blocks of knowledge that creates the palace of history.”—Firetrench

    Are you tired of having the wool pulled over your eyes? Do you feel that people are always taking advantage of you or your relationships are superficial and fake? Are you ready to stand against those who think they can manipulate and take advantage of you? 
    If you answered yes to any of the following statements, this book is for you. Why?  
    Dark Psychology and Manipulation is a book that draws attention to the manipulating and persuasive behavior of those around us who choose to use them to further hidden motives.  
    From the workplace to your home, with your colleagues, friends, or family, we sometimes want to believe that those who care about us would never manipulate us. The sad reality is, sometimes, it is those who are closest that take advantage of the kind-hearted. In Dark Psychology and Manipulation, we discuss the techniques that make up the facet of dark psychology, including persuasion, manipulation, and coercion. As you read on, I explain methods of identifying deceit and manipulation, and I provide helpful techniques on how to protect yourself from further being a victim.  
    I want to show you how you can use manipulation, persuasion, and coercion for good. I also discuss how you can turn the tables on the very people who thought they could take advantage of you. 
    Learn about…The mentality of a manipulator Psychological Triad (Narcissism, Machiavellianism, and Psychotherapy) Emotional intelligencePersuasion and influence Turning the tables on the manipulator to benefit you 
    Take a stand, and turn the tables on anyone seeking to cause you harm. I have created Dark Psychology and Manipulation as an easy to read guide to stop the negativity toxicity that comes from those who believe in manipulation, persuasion, and narcissism to get what they want.

    'Really packs a punch' Aja Barber, author of Consumed: The Need for Collective Change: Colonialism, Climate Change, and Consumerism
    'Will open the minds of even the most ardent denier of climate change and/or systemic racism. If there's one book that will help you to be an effective activist for climate justice, it's this one.' Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, author of This is Why I Resist
    
    'Accessible. Poignant. Challenging.' Nnimmo Bassey, environmentalist and author of To Cook a Continent: Destructive Extraction and the Climate Crisis in Africa
    
    When we talk about racism, we often mean personal prejudice or institutional biases. Climate change doesn't work that way. It is structurally racist, disproportionately caused by majority White people in majority White countries, with the damage unleashed overwhelmingly on people of colour. The climate crisis reflects and reinforces racial injustices.
    
    In this eye-opening book, writer and environmental activist Jeremy Williams takes us on a short, urgent journey across the globe - from Kenya to India, the USA to Australia - to understand how White privilege and climate change overlap. We'll look at the environmental facts, hear the experiences of the people most affected on our planet and learn from the activists leading the change.
    It's time for each of us to find our place in the global struggle for justice.
