Finest hour : the battle of Britain by Tim Clayton( Book )
28 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 1,425 libraries worldwide
Sixty years ago, Europe lay at the feet of Adolf Hitler. Standing between Hitler and world domination was the just-appointed Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a few hundred pilots in the Royal Air Force's Fighter Command. Defeat seemed inevitable. Instead, a legend was born. Taking its readers on a breathtaking journey from open lifeboats in North Atlantic gales to the cockpits of burning fighter planes, Finest Hour re-creates the tensions and uncertainties of the events of 1940 -- months when the fate of the world truly hung in the balance. It is a powerful account, told through the voices, diaries, letters, and memoirs of the men and women who lived and loved, fought and died, during that terrible yet ultimately triumphant year. The personal stories of these soldiers and airmen, diplomats and politicians, journalists and spies, are combined with a fresh and often controversial account of the swirling political intrigues and betrayals of the period. A testament to a year when a nation's darkest hour became its finest, Finest Hour is a singular achievement and an indispensable contribution to the literature of World War II. - Publisher

"Sea Wolves is the story of the crews who bravely manned British submarines in the Second World War. This small band of highly trained and highly skilled individuals fought in the front line for six long years, undertaking some of the most dangerous missions of the war. Britain's Sea Wolves operated close to shore in mined waters, attacking warships and heavily guarded convoys. But in the course of these vital operations, the submariners suffered devastating casualties. This is the vivid, thrilling story of the survivors and their promising young comrades who fought with such courage, in the face of the sickening terror of depth-charge attacks and the cold fear of having to escape from a sunken submarine filled with the bodies of close friends"--Publisher's description

Bonaparte and the British : prints and propaganda in the age of Napoleon by Tim Clayton( Book )
11 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 142 libraries worldwide
Not only was Waterloo one of the most decisive battles ever fought, it was also a crucial event in European history, ending over 20 years of conflict and bringing to his knees one of Europe's most challenging figures - Napoleon Bonaparte. Accompanying a major British Museum exhibition to mark the 200th anniversary of the battle of Waterloo, this intriguing book shows through contemporary prints how Bonaparte was seen from across the English Channel, where hostile propaganda was tempered by admiration for his military and administrative talents. With stunning illustrations showing the intricately detailed prints in full colour this book brings to life a key period in European history. Exhibition: British Museum, London, U.K., February 5-August 16, 2015
Waterloo : four days that changed Europe's destiny by Tim Clayton( Book )
10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 139 libraries worldwide
"The bloodbath at Waterloo ended a war that had engulfed the world for over twenty years. It also finished the career of the charismatic Napoleon Bonaparte. It ensured the final liberation of Germany and the restoration of the old European monarchies, and it represented one of very few defeats for the glorious French army, most of whose soldiers remained devoted to their Emperor until the very end. Extraordinary though it may seem, much about the Battle of Waterloo has remained uncertain, with many major features of the campaign hotly debated. Most histories have depended heavily on the evidence of British officers that were gathered about twenty years after the battle. But the recent publication of an abundance of fresh first-hand accounts from soldiers of all the participating armies has illuminated important episodes and enabled radical reappraisal of the course of the campaign. What emerges is a darker, muddier story, no longer biased by notions of regimental honour, but a tapestry of irony, accident, courage, horror and human frailty. An epic page turner, rich in dramatic human detail and grounded in first-class scholarly research, Waterloo is the real inside story of the greatest land battle in British history, the defining showdown of the age of muskets, bayonets, cavalry and cannon."--Publisher's description
Hogarth by Tim Clayton( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
"William Hogarth (1697-1764) is an artist whose popularity has never waned. He has been characterized variously as a witty satirist, stern moralist, aggressive self-promoter, detached observer, and man of the people. His celebrated patriotism and 'Britishness' were shaped, paradoxically, by the remarkably cosmopolitan environment of eighteenth-century London. His distinctive urban themes reflect the concerns of an increasingly metropolitan society which will be familiar to modern residents and visitors alike." "Hogarth's contribution to the development of modern British art was unique, and his influence has been enormous. His multi-faceted output ranges from elegant conversation pieces to salacious brothel scenes. His reputation is based almost entirely on his numerous prints and engraved works, including famous series such as A Rake's Progress, A Harlot's Progress, Marriage A-la-Mode, Industry and Idleness, Gin Lane, Beer Street and the Four Stages of Cruelty. The British Museum has one of the most complete collections of Hogarth prints in the world, and this beautifully produced book provides a selection of the best, introduced by a brief overview of the artist and his times."--BOOK JACKET
