Hitler's Forgotten Secret Weapon - New Book out today

The last great untold story of World War II, the career of Hitler’s “Super Fighter” intended to destroy the RAF in the Battle of Britain and why it never succeeded. 

The super-secret Heinkel He113 fighter was designed to be a high-speed, high-altitude fighter that could outperform, outgun and outfight any other aircraft in the world when it entered service with the Luftwaffe in 1940. Hitler’s airforce commander, Hermann Goring declared that the Spitfire was “so much scrap metal”. As the Battle of Britain opened the RAF issued directives to pilots about the new Superjaegar, or Super Fighter, and squadrons of these aircraft were met in combat over the Channel.

Yet all was not what it seemed. There was a fatal flaw at the heart of the Superjaegar Projekt that meant that the aircraft would never achieve its potential and so would become Hitler’s forgotten secret weapon.

In this fascinating book the author traces the development of the He113 Wonder Fighter from the drawing board at Heinkel to the war torn skies over Britain in the fateful summer of 1940.

NEW BOOK- Grandma's Teddy Bear Club

Grandma’s Teddy Bear Club
A new book for grandparents looking after grandchildren

A new book aimed at helping grandparents entertain grandchildren has been produced by Barbara Hayes, a retired comic writer from the Amalgamated Press who worked on titles such as Look and Learn, Teddy Bear, Toybox and Bobo Bunny. The book has been released today by Bretwalda Books as a printed book and ebook.
The book contains stories to read out, games, pencil and paper activities and running about games to exhaust the little ones while the cunning grandparent sits comfortably on the sofa – all told by a master storyteller.
Characters in the book include Wake Up Early in the Morning Bear, Bossy Boots Bear, Nurse Bear, Kick the Bedclothes Off Bear and Scribbler Bear.
* Stories to read which are specially written to appeal to the young and very young age groups.
* Asides, questions and ideas to involve the child in the story — no passive listening here.
* Simple moving around activities to make a change from sitting reading.
* Simple crayon and paper fun aimed at all younger ages. If a child can hold a pencil - that is good enough to start joining in. And of course, older children will enjoy showing how skilled and clever they are.
Barbara Hayes says “I have made the stories and activities revolve around teddy bears and plain paper and crayons. This is because most households with children already have these things and no extra expense will be involved.
“Anyway that has told you something about the book. I hope you find it helpful — I do every Wednesday when I look after my youngest grandchild.”

The book is available from all good bookshops or from the publisher’s website

Watch the video   HERE
A gripping account of the  battles that gave the Royal Hampshire Regiment its proud battle honours. 
Men from across Hampshire have for generations fought in the ranks of the Royal Hampshire Regiment, or its predecessors the North Hampshire Regiment and South Hampshire Regiment.
Among the great battles featured among the Battle Honours are: Blenheim, Minden, Barossa, Kabul, Paardeburg, The Somme, Passchendaele, Dunkirk, D-Day and Rhine Crossing. Each major battle will get a chapter to itself, more minor clashes will be dealt with within general campaign chapters.
Illustrated with photos and artworks this book provides a thrilling account of the history of the county regiment in stirring language that will appeal to a wide readership.
Author Rupert Matthews says “I was thrilled to write this book as Hampshire has one of the finest military traditions of any English county. The origins of the Royal Hampshire Regiment go back to 1702 and it has fought in every major war since then. The regiment won an amazing 160 Battle Honours, each time adding to the glory of the Hampshire name, but also sadly adding to the bloody bill that goes with military success.”

His works have been translated into 19 languages and have been shortlisted for a number of awards.
