100 Metre Men

 

It takes just under 10 seconds to run, but to the winner of Athletics' men's 100 metres goes the accolade of "The Fastest Man on Earth". 100 Metre Men, first published in 1988 as a tie-in to the Thames Television series The Fastest Men on Earth, is reissued in paperback format, fully revised and updated to include the incredible men's 100 metres final at the London 2012 Games when Usain Bolt won his second gold medal.
 
Each chapter discusses not only the race itself, but also the preliminary rounds, dramas and controversies and includes interviews with all the key players, not just the champion.

Published in association with The Tank Museum, TANKS: 100 Years of Armoured Warfare charts the tank's first century, from the early stumbling attempts at developing an all-terrain armoured vehicle to the lethal killing machines of the twenty-first century. Major technical developments and types are covered from the Mark IV, the German Panzer, the Russian T-26 and the American Grants and Shermans. The most famous tank battles are described, from Flers-Courcelette in 1916 to Kursk in 1943, the First Gulf War and the performance of tanks in the Russo-Georgian War of 2008.

Victoria

 

 Queen of Great Britain and ruler of an empire on which the sun never set, Victoria gave her name to an age that came to represent progress, expansion and industrialization. She ruled for an unprecedented 64 years, coming to the throne in 1837 at the young age of 19 and dying in 1901.

Deborah Jaffe looks at every aspect of a remarkable era, including its politics, art, science and society and shows why, over a century after her death, Victoria's influence endures today. Accompanied with over 200 glorious images, this is a fascinating tribute to one of the greatest British monarchs.
