Barça

 

Barca celebrates the rise and rise of the most dominant soccer team in the modern era. It is not just that the team has won everything there is to win, it is that they do it with a style rarely seen in world soccer. They have excited fans not just in Catalonia, but right around the globe, making household names of Xavi, Messi, Iniesta, Ronaldinho, Romario, Maradona, Cruyff and many more over more than a century of footballing excellence. This book traces the club's history from its formation in 1899, the trials and triubulations of growth, the battle to emerge from the shadow - politically and sportingly - of Madrid, the blossoming of the club in the 1970s, European glory in the 1980s and 90s, and now this juggernaut of soccer that brushes aside all-comers. Features on the legends of Barcelona give deeper insight into the clubs key players and the lively, informative text is brought to life by dramatic action images.

Brigitte Bardot

 

Brigitte Bardot was the first official face of Marianne, the figure synonymous with the liberty of France. She became one of the most famous faces of French cinema during the 50s and 60s and set the world alight when she appeared in And God Created Woman in 1957. Working with some of the most revered film directors in the world, including Jean-Luc Godard and Louis Malle, as well as appearing with such luminaries as Kirk Douglas and Sean Connery, Bardot has had as colourful a life off screen as she has on.

The Lancaster and the Tirpitz

This is the story of the Lancaster bomber and the sinking of the battleship Tirpitz. Two of the most legendary war machines of the Second World War, they symbolised their nations' quests for victory in history's greatest ever conflict. The Lancaster was Britain's main heavy bomber - RAF Bomber Command's 'Shining Sword'-whose role was to take the fight to the enemy, delivering deadly payloads to targets deep in the heart of Germany.

Written by a former Squadron Leader of the 617 'Dam Busters' Squadron, who took part in the Lancaster-bomber raid that finally sank the Tirpitz in November 1944, and published to commemorate the raid's 70th anniversary, The Lancaster and the Tirpitz is a brilliantly readable account full of first-hand memories that take the reader to the heart of the action.
