[close] Boots, Bayonets and Books is a group dedicated to promoting military literature and the history of warfare, with a selection from both non-fiction and fiction. Every month readers will be able to choose from one of two recommended books, with a selection of other titles where applicable. Throughout the year we will offer you the chance to win prizes and encourage your reviews, thoughts, recommendations and participation. Books may also include those on European and Western history, British history, politics and international relations to widen your knowledge of issues, events or periods, but these will not be nominated for Book of the Month. We hope you have fun and enjoy Boots, Bayonets and Books!
