Trafalgar by John Terraine( Book )

18 editions published between 1975 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ... book describes one of the most famous naval battles of all time, which shattered Napoleon's dreams of invading England. Amplifying the details of the battle is a lengthy selection of contemporary eye-witness accounts ... This is the story of not just the morning and afternoon in which Nelson and Collingwood smashed the combined fleets of France and Spain, but also that of a complex campaign of which Trafalgar was the climax. It shows that the protagonists were not Admirals Villeneuve and Nelson, but Napoleon and the British naval tradition"--Page 4 of cover

Douglas Haig, the educated soldier by John Terraine( Book )

19 editions published between 1963 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The war diaries of Douglas Haig, Commander-in-Chief of the British Army on the Western Front for the final three years of the First World War, begin with the early, tentative days of the British Expeditionary Force in July-August 1914. They end after the Armistice, in November 1918, with the Allied forces finally victorious." "Here are his day-by-day accounts of the key battles of the war, not least the Somme, Passchendaele and the victorious offensives of 1918. His diaries also illustrate Haig's dealing with the politicians and cast light on both of the wartime British Prime Ministers - he records Asquith's stupendous capacity for alcohol, and, on Lloyd George, he is succinct: 'I have no great opinion of L.G. as a man or leader.' He abhorred political double-speak and found a ready supporter in the King, where there was a mutual trust." "Douglas Haig: War Diaries and Letters: 1914-1918 brings to modern readers a contemporary account of the First World War written by the soldier who ensured Allied victory."--BOOK JACKET

17 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twice within 25 years Britain was threatened with starvation by the menace of the U-Boat. In this study of submarine warfare, the author explains why Winston Churchill wrote ""the only thing that ever frightened me during the war was the U-Boat peril"". Until it had been overcome, the Anglo-American entry into Europe in 1944 would have been impossible. John Terraine concentrates on the combatants themselves, both German and Allied, but does not overlook the three main factors in the equation - the political, the military and the technological, as well as the intelligence, the weapons and the d
