“Lictorian Fasces over England” is the story of Corpo Aero Italiano, the Reggia Aeronautica detachment operating against Britain in 1940 – 1941. Established for propaganda and political reasons, the corps had to face two equally formidable enemies over the Channel: the RAF and the brutal weather conditions to which they were hardly accustomed. The book presents a blow by blow account of the unit's operations in addition to detailed descriptions of the aircraft used in the campaign.

The AMX-30 was France’s principal battle tank for over 30 years and continues to serve the French Army in later forms even to this day. In this first work of a two volume study examining the history of the AMX-30 battle tank, M.P. Robinson describes the development and introduction to service of this long serving weapon system. Photographic coverage in Volume 1 is focused on the AMX-30B gun tank, its service life and the supporting vehicles that served alongside it in the Arme Blindée Cavalerie in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Over 150 colour and black and white photographs tell the story of this tank in its environment, as well as in detail, for the historian and modellers alike.
