 A Fleet in Being: Austro-Hungarian Warships of WWI
 Regular price: $2.99
 Bundle price: $2.15

The Kaiserliche und Königliche Kriegsmarine -- The Austro-Hungarian Navy -- was in at the beginning of World War I when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie lay in state aboard its flagship, and at the end when it dissolved along with the empire that commanded it. During the war, this small but powerful "fleet in being" forced the Allies to maintain a blockade of the Otranto Straits. German and Austro-Hungarian U-boats ran riot in the Mediterranean even though the capital ships almost never left port.

Illustrated with thirty photographs and drawings, this book provides a comprehensive and detailed listing of the ships that made up the KuK Kriegsmarine, its operations, and the unique problems this unusual fleet faced, from contentious duelling parliaments t...

 Germany's High Sea Fleet in the World War
 Regular price: $0.99
 Bundle price: $0.69

Victors write history. German Admiral Reinhard Scheer knew this, and wrote his own anyway. In this memoir of World War One, he says, "We are victors and vanquished at one and the same time, and in depicting our success the difficult problem confronts us of not forgetting that our strength did not last out to the end."

Admiral Scheer took command of the German High Seas Fleet in 1916. He championed unrestricted submarine warfare as the key to winning, maintaining that it was no worse than the British blockade against Germany. Scheer's belief in aggressive surface fleet actions led him to the Battle of Jutland, the largest naval engagement in World War One and still one of the biggest in history.

Scheer asserts that the Fleet fought well throughout the war: "...

 The SOTCW World War I Compendium
 Regular price: $3.99
 Bundle price: $2.15

It began in Sarajevo in 1914, in a cascade of treaty obligations following an assassination. It ended in the mirrored halls of Versailles in 1918, in a treaty that would lead directly to an even more catastrophic war. The Great War--World War I--slaughtered millions, left a continent in ruins, and caused many a military leader to reassess what he thought he knew about war.

How would you have fought it?

The SOTCW World War I Compendium provides wargamers with a wealth of resources. Included are scenarios, Orders of Battle, histories, and more.

Product Information

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
