After Julius follows a family who have been brought back together, but they're finding it hard not to fall apart. Julius died 20 years ago but his last heroic action is still leaving a huge impact; Mr Wrong is a collection of short stories about dysfunctional families; and Odd Girl Out takes an eagle-eyed look at a destructive marriage.
Something in Disguise is a witty account of a post-war family who are on the cusp of change and facing a crisis; and Getting It Right is a touching comedy about a sensitive hairdresser who tries to start living life 'right' at the age of 31.
Simon Scarrow is one of the world's favourite historical fiction authors and his Eagles of the Empire series is a must-read for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden.

Second in command to Macro, the army find themselves on a special mission to Britain - a land of unparalleled barbarity...

A Prayer for Gallipoli covers the Great War from the point of view of a chaplain. Kenneth Best had no military training, so to fulfil his pastoral role, he had to get close to the front line and work with troops as they were under fire. As his empathy for the troops grew larger, he became more and more disgusted with their leaders. These diaries provide an insight into the horrific realities of trench warfare.
The Secret History of the Blitz by Joshua Levine looks at the people that are not normally mentioned during accounts of the War - those spivs, outcasts and unsung heroes who were in the shadows; and D-Day to Victory features the diaries of a British tank commander as the war finally came to an end.
All written using archive and primary sources, these are candid and compelling reads about the triumphs and tragedies of war.
