About Us

The business was established in 1990 by Paul Meekins. We have been selling online since 2000.


We stock military and social history books for all periods from ancient times to modern day, and we have over 20,000 books in stock.


We operate a full time mail order business and also trade at a number of shows throughout the year. We do not have a shop.


We are VAT registered, although books are currently zero-rated for VAT in the UK and you will therefore pay no VAT on book orders. 
However, we do sell some items, such as costume patterns, where VAT is included in the price. If you need a VAT receipt please let us know.


Our VAT registration number is 144 6772 93

We are always interested in purchasing secondhand military and history books.
