Product Description:
Whilst many books have been written on the history of the Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces in WWII, none of them have concentrated solely on the story of the 1st Parachute Brigade in North Africa between 1942 and 1943. Helion and Company are therefore pleased to announce the publication of Tunisian Tales - the 1st Parachute Brigade in North Africa 1942 - 1943 by Niall Cherry. Tunisian Tales covers the raising of the Brigade in 1941 and training in the UK before their transfer to the Mediterranean theater of operations. It also covers the three airborne operations carried out by the Brigade there - Bone, Souk-el-Arba and Depienne/Oudna - in great detail. The book is complemented by over 100 photos many never published before, several maps (including one used by Lieutenant Colonel Pearson when in command of the 1st Parachute Battalion) and coverage of the Airborne Medical Services in the area, besides extensive appendices. This is Niall Cherry's third book for Helion following on from his highly successful previous titles - Most Unfavorable Ground and Striking Back. As in his previous works, detailed research has been carried out using official reports, war diaries and veterans' accounts. The book has the full approval of 'Airborne Assault', the Museum of the Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces at Duxford, and we are delighted that its curator, Jon Baker, has contributed the Foreword. Tunisian Tales represents a notable contribution to new research into the history of Britain's airborne forces. It is being published in a strictly limited edition hardback run of 1,000 copies, each signed by the author and individually numbered.

Product Description:
  • Story of the defeat of the legendary Desert Fox
  • Analyzes Rommel's generalship
  • Details logistical difficulties and the erosion of weapons quality of the Afrika Korps

    In the sands of North Africa during the early years of World War II, German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel burnished his reputation as the "Desert Fox." After a string of successes, Rommel's fortunes began to sour with the battles of El Alamein, where the British under Bernard Montgomery halted Axis expansion in the fall of 1942, followed days later by the American landings in Morocco and Algeria. As the Americans drove the Germans into Tunisia from the west and the British from the east, Rommel routed U.S. forces at Kasserine Pass. After his last-ditch attack at Medenine was repulsed, the Desert Fox was forced to evacuate, leaving much of his fabled force to Allied captivity.

    Product Description:
    From late 2010 to the present day, the Arab world has been shot through with insurrection and revolt. As a result, Tunisia is now seen as the unlikely birthplace and exemplar of the process of democratisation long overdue in the Arab world.

    Mixing political, historical, economic, social and cultural analyses and approaches, these essays reflect on the local, regional and transnational dynamics together with the long and short term factors that, when combined, set in motion the Tunisian revolution and the Arab uprisings. Above all, the book maps the intertwined genealogies of cultural dissent that have contributed to the mobilisation of protesters and to the sustenance of protests between 17 December 2010 and 14 January 2011, and beyond.

    Product Description:
    On December 17, 2010, a struggling young fruit vendor lit himself on fire outside of the local municipal building in the town of Sidi Bouzid, Tunisia. This final act of defiance sparked a popular uprising that ousted the President and inspired a sea change in the region, which would come to be known as the Arab Spring. Khalid Hussein documents the Tunisian Revolution of 2011 in this concise, comprehensive, and powerfully illustrated blow-by-blow account. This volume offers an informative introduction to the Arab uprisings, and visually stunning monument to a people’s struggle for freedom.
