This month we have a number of fantastic prizes to be won, courtesy of Oxford University Press:

  • The winner will receive £150-worth of Oxford University Press history books of their choice
  • Three runners-up will each receive a copy of the celebrated Oxford Illustrated History of the First World War by Sir Hew Strachan.

The Oxford History list has a superb selection of prominent and award-winning authors, writing on a wide range of topics. From essential reference to leading scholarship, History from Oxford provides an outstanding array of military history titles catering for all levels and interests.

This year we are looking forward to Alan Forrest’s Waterloo (the first book to be published in their new ‘Great Battles’ series), which considers how the events of 18 June 1815 changed the face of Europe.

Marking the 70th anniversary of VE day, Richard Overy provides a rich and thought-provoking new interpretation of one of the most terrible and fascinating episodes in world history in The Oxford Illustrated History of World War II. We also eagerly await Bruno Colson’s new book Napoleon: On War, the first systematic and authoritative compilation of Napoleon’s thinking on war and strategy.
