"My next book is about the May 1942 battle for Kharkov. After that will be one for the German invasion of the Balkans in April 1941, then the final assault on the Russian fortress at Sevastopol in June and July 1942. Tentatively after that will come the Stalingrad and Barbarossa campaigns with just maps and OB/TOE charts."

Editor's Pick
1 March 2007

Sometimes when we run across an interesting/unusual/informative book, especially an older or out-of-print one, we like to bring it to your attention. Here's one:

Hauner, Milan. India in Axis Strategy: Germany, Japan, and Indian Nationalists in the Second World War. Stuttgart: Klett-Cotta, 1981

Published in Germany but written in English, Hauner's work provides the definitive history not of India during the war, but rather of Axis planning in regard to India. Much material on Subhas Chandra Bose and Azad Hind.

Sixty-five years ago today, on 1 March 1942, Japanese forces completed their landings on Java and all remaining Allied warships and other vessels were sunk or driven away from the East Indies, including USS Houston, sunk in the Battle of Sunda Strait.
