WIN A COPY OF The English Civil War
The subtitle of this huge tome is An Atlas and Concise History of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms or, to put it another way, everything you ever wanted to know about the English Civil War. This is the war represented in detail with copious maps showing troop dispositions for numerous battles and skirmishes. If you ever wanted to wargame any of these battles, it’s a virtual how-to-do-it guide. For the general historian though, the detail about the politics, from the Bishop’s Wars of 1639-40 up to the English Restoration of 1660 set the context for the fighting. It’s a huge book, packed with detail, that you can read chronologically, or dip in for highlights like specific battles.

WIN A COPY OF In Cold War Skies
From one end of history to the other with our second prize, two copies of In Cold War Skies. These are the years 1949-89 as the forces of Nato and the Soviet Union faced each other over the skies of Europe. As well as a history of the burgeoning nuclear deterrent and how that could be delivered, there are the fighters, interceptors and bombers. With period photography and some coffee-table standard images, all printed in a large format on glossy paper, this is a gorgeous, yet informative guide to the Cold War in the air.

Simply answer the question correctly for your chance to be entered into the prize draw.
