    Just acquired a revised copy of Jim Storr's King Arthur's Wars - the Anglo Saxon conquest of England. The main points of offence/defence where I live were much the same as during the Claudian conquest more than four centuries earlier and were reflected in the stop line built in 1940/41

    Had about given up on finding a copy of this, having really wanted it since seeing a reference in the notes of Philip
    Williams's excellent 'War on Wheels'.

    Accidentally opened all my 'book hunt' links last week, and there it was from an Amazon seller. Only six quid, so one of those slightly desperate 'grab it' purchases.

    Distributed free by Vauxhall for WD Bedford users. Illustrated by Douglas of Punch.
    It wasn't just the Germans that made these cartoonish manuals, though I suppose they might have called it 'Für Dumkopfs', rather than the 'Bloody Fools' acronym.

    May scan it all in later.
    Somebody may find useful.

    Horrible feeling I might now have started collecting them... That first Panzeknacker facsimile triggering a very slow slippery slope.

    Okay, here are the most recent Orwell arrivals.
    I have slowed down a bit ...
