The Naval War in the Baltic 1939 -1945 – автор Poul Gross, 416 страниц (30-04-2017).

From the shelling of the fort at Westerplatte, on the Polish coast, on 1 September 1939, to the loss of thousands of German refugees at sea in May 1945, the Baltic witnessed continuous and ferocious fighting throughout World War II. In this new book Poul Groos chronicles naval warfare in the region and covers such major events as the siege of Leningrad, the Soviet campaign against Sweden in 1942, the three wars in Finland 1939 44, the Soviet liberation of the Baltic states, and the German evacuation of two million people from the East, and the Soviet race westwards in 1945.
Groos also explores topics such as Swedish cooperation with Germany, the Germans use of the Baltic to train U-boats crews for the battle of the Atlantic, the secret weapons trials in the remote area of Peenmunde, and the RAF mining campaign that reduced the threat of new and revolutionary German submarine technology. He explains how messages from Bletchley Park were the basis for the RAF attacks on German coastal regions. Moreover, Groos provides the political and military context of the war in this theatre and he describes details of ships, radar, artillery, mines, and aircraft.

Russo-Turkish Naval War 1877-1878 - автор Piotr Olender, 240 страниц (30-03-2017).

The Russo-Turkish War of 1877–78 was a conflict between the Ottoman Empire and the Eastern Orthodox coalition led by the Russian Empire and composed of Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, and Montenegro. Fought in the Balkans and in the Caucasus, it originated in emerging 19th-century Balkan nationalism. Additional factors included Russian hopes of recovering territorial losses suffered during the Crimean War, re-establishing itself in the Black Sea and supporting the political movement attempting to free Balkan nations from the Ottoman Empire.
The background, operations and outcomes are described in detail. All the ships involved, both Russian and Turkish, are described and illustrated with full technical specifications. Profusely illustrated with scale drawings (side views) and illustrations.

Новые книги

Пришла новая посылка из Англии, а в ней пачка книжек, как новых, так и старых.
Одна новая фишка для новых книг, очень мелкий шрифт, например в Линейных крейсерах сноски можно прочесть только под лупой.
Первый взгляд на эти книги.


Новинки:

1. British Warship Recognition: The Perkins identification Albums: vol. II: Armoured Ships 1860-95, Monitors and Aviation Ships, автор Richard Perkins – 176 страниц.

К сожалению опять не смогли решить проблему подписями, часть просто не читаема.
