Adding a link to my publications

I understand from feedback that I have received that some of my regular blog readers have been unable to find my latest publication (WHEN EMPIRES CLASH!) when they have searched the Lulu website.

I have therefore added a tab called 'Publications' just below the title of my blog, and this will take readers to a page with links to the relevant sections of the Lulu and Amazon websites.

Ancient Cannons














Armour





The Napoleonic War








The Great War






















Small Arms




Military head wear from around the world







Models of the Portuguese forts in Goa



Artillery models















Joaquim Augusto Mouzinho de Albuquerque





Magazine Rifles and early Machine Guns
