German Submarine U-1105 Black Panther: The Naval Archaeology of a U-boat

German Submarine U-1105 Black Panther: The Naval Archaeology of a U-boat Now in its final resting place at the bottom of the Potomac River in Maryland, the U-Boat U-1105 is unique among German World War II submarines. Technologically innovative, it was the only U-Boat to conduct a wartime patrol while equipped with the snorkel, GHG Balkon passive sonar, and a rubberized coating known as Alberich designed to reduce its acoustic signature and hide from Allied sonar. After the end of World War II, it was the subject of intense testing and evaluation by the Allies, before finally being sunk to the bottom of the Potomac River. This highly-illustrated book uses many new and previously unpublished images to tell the full story of this remarkable U-Boat, evaluating the effectiveness of its late-war technologies, document its extensive postwar testing, and detail all the features still present on the wreck site today. $35.00 USD

Parliament's Generals: Supreme Command and Politics During the British Wars 1642-51

Parliament's Generals: Supreme Command and Politics During the British Wars 1642-51 Waller, Essex, Fairfax, Manchester, and Cromwell are among the most famous military men who fought for Parliament during the English Civil War. While their performance as generals has been explored in numerous books on the campaigns, comparatively little has been written by military historians about the political aspects of high command, namely the ever-changing and often fractious relationship with the English Parliament and its executive committees. The book examines the qualities they employed in their attempts to achieve their military and political aspirations. $50.00 USD
