    Hand-picked favourites
    Head back to Platform 9 3/4, climb aboard the Hogwarts Express and enjoy the complete series of Harry Potter books for one magical price. Presented in a gorgeous slipcase, these editions of J. K. Rowling's classics come with stunning cover illustrations by Jonny Duddle.

    A phenomenon like no other, Harry's incredible journey begins with The Philosopher's Stone. Unhappily living in a cupboard under the stairs at his aunt's, he's visited by a giant called Rubeus Hagrid who delivers the most astonishing news - Harry's a wizard. As he heads to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry makes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, meets oh-so-wise Professor Dumbledore and the complex Severus Snape and their incredible adventure begins. But evil in the shape of Lord Voldemort is getting ever closer - and the Dark Lord has his sights set firmly on Harry.

    Throughout the seven books, Harry learns what it means to be a Gryffindor student and the value of friendship and trust. The eight films starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were a record-breaking success and now you can relive the stories - whatever your age - where it all began time and time again with this amazing Harry Potter box set - Expecto Patronum!

    What really happened on the night of the Dambusters raid?

    Following extensive research, acclaimed military historian Max Hastings urges us all to examine the Dambusters in more complex shades. Having grown up embracing the story of 24-year-old wing-commander Guy Gibson and his crew's bravery on 16 to 17 May 1943, Hastings reveals how although some of the legends are true, the team also made some devastating errors and mistakes.

    He sets the Dams Raid in the big picture of the bomber offensive and of the Second World War and offers moving portraits of the young airmen who made the mission a success including Barnes Wallis, Sir Arthur 'Bomber' Harris and the tragic Guy Gibson.

    This is a superb narrative of one of the most extraordinary episodes in British history.
