    The Last Gentleman Of The SAS
    John Randall - Hardback - Mainstream Publishing
    John Randall looks at you with the same piercing blue-grey gaze he turned on SS Hauptsturmfuhrer Josef Kramer, the commandant of the notorious Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, in 1945. Randall was the first Allied officer into the camp that would reveal the horrors of the Holocaust to the world. Randall is a modest man who hates injustice and brutality, the cornerstones of the Nazi regime, and is proud of the part he played in the downfall of the Third Reich. He cares equally passionately about his old regiments, Phantom and the SAS, and has fond memories of former comrades in both units and friends he made among the French underground movement, the Maquis. Now in his nineties, Randall was one of that league of extraordinary gentlemen handpicked for suicidally dangerous missions behind enemy lines, in North Africa, Italy, France and Germany throughout the Second World War.

    The Lewis Chessmen And What Happened To Them
    Irving L. Finkel - Paperback - British Museum
    The Lewis chessmen were found on the Isle of Lewis in mysterious circumstances. Consisting of elaborately worked walrus ivory and whales teeth in the form of seated kings and queens, bishops, knights, warders and pawns, this curious chess set is strongly influenced by Norse culture. Of the 93 pieces known to us today, 11 pieces are in Edinburgh at the National Museum of Scotland, and 82 are in the British Museum, where they have delighted generations of visitors with their wonderfully expressive details. In this engaging story, Irving Finkel follows the many adventures of the chessmen after they came to light on a Scottish beach in the 19th century.
