  • 1001 Battles That Changed The Course of History

    1001 Battles That Changed the Course of History traces the history of warmongering, from the small-scale battles of the ancient world to the devastation of modern conflicts. It provides a comprehensive record of the armed combats that have shaped the political and cultural landscape of the world and is fully illustrated with images ranging from ancient triumphal stone carvings through to the very latest war photography. This is much more than a straightforward military history title; it reveals the fascinating, and sometimes surprising, ways in which key military events have shaped the world in which we live. From the earliest recorded conflicts, involving just a few thousand foot soldiers, to the horrors of modern, chemical warfare, 1001 Battles That Changed the Course of History looks at the reasons why people go to war and both the short- and long-term consequences of battles of all sizes. To understand modern conflicts, people need to know what has gone before. This book traces the changing face of warfare around the globe, from the Battle of Troy, the Fall of Babylon, and the Siege of Antioch to the Battle of Gettysburg, the bombing of Guernica, the Siege of Leningrad, and the Battle of Fallujah.

  • 200 Recipes for Kids

    By Emma Jane Frost
    Authors:
    Emma Jane Frost
    As parents, we all know that children can be notoriously difficult to cook for. Many of us fall into the habit of cooking the same dishes over and over again, simply because we cannot bear the idea of scraping wasted food into the bin at the end of a meal. However, a child's formative years are when they learn to accept and like new foods, and it is therefore of great importance to encourage them with new tastes and different textures as often as you can. Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook: 200 Recipes for Kids has been put together with this in mind, but also with the knowledge that children are generally fussy creatures and like their food to be simple and to look good. Each recipe has been photographed to show you exactly what you will be cooking (and what they will be eating), and has of course been tested for child-appeal. To prevent your children getting bored by the same meals, we have also added a creative variation at the end of each recipe.
