While American infantry slogged its way through the hedgerows of western Normandy in July 1944, the British were waging a largely armoured campaign to the east near Caen. Planned to have been seized on D-Day, Caen still remained contested on 18 July, when Bernard Montgomery launched Operation Goodwood, whose exact purpose is still debated -- either to draw Germans away from the American sector or to break out to Falaise. In one of the largest armoured battles in British history, the British lost almost one-third of its tank strength in Normandy in exchange for a gain of only seven miles. Features: Comprehensive retelling of the controversial British operation near Caen; Told from both the British and German perspectives; Heavily illustrated with maps and photos, including detailed aerial reconnaissance photos taken during the battle.

The estate of Goodwood is glorious not only for its famous racecourse and motor racing circuit but also for its magnificent art collection. This superbly illustrated book reveals the treasures of Goodwood. Curator Rosemary Baird tells the story of the Dukes of Richmond, from the birth of the 1st Duke (son of Louise de Kéroualle and Charles II), who purchased Goodwood. She describes events such as the Duchess of Richmond's famous ball, from which officers were called to fight in the Battle of Waterloo ('some arrived at the field of battle in silk stockings and dancing shoes') and how, with wealth largely derived from a tax on coal leaving Newcastle, the Richmond family developed Goodwood and acquired works of art to adorn it. In particular the book focuses on the great 18th-century collections of the 2nd and 3rd Dukes. The 2nd Duke was a leading exponent of the Palladian movement, building Richmond House on the banks of the Thames at Whitehall as well as an extension to Goodwood. He commissioned from Canaletto two views of the Thames, which were painted from Richmond House. The 3rd Duke patronized some of the greatest painters and architects of the day – at the age of 24 he gave the unknown George Stubbs his first commission – and collected French furniture, tapestries and porcelain.

Goodwood Remembered is a unique collection of previously unpublished photographs, sketches and recollections of Peter Redman, an enthusiastic spectator. As well as over 150 of his photographs from the late 1940s and 1950s, Peter Redman has included more than 50 sketches of cars and drivers of the period and 13 of his cartoons that help bring motor racing at Goodwood between 1948 and 1960 to life. The book is full of interesting snippets. Bernie Ecclestone’s second place in a 500 cc race, and World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio nursing an “off-song” Cooper-Bristol into sixth place in a Formula Libre race, are just two examples. It is a fascinating insight into the range of racing cars and drivers at Goodwood in that period: from World Champions such as Fangio, Farina and Hawthorn to handicap races for lady drivers. Goodwood Remembered will be of great interest to anyone who remembers those times and for the huge number who follow historic motor racing or want to know more of the roots of modern motor sport.

One of the most elegant mansions in Florida, Goodwood was built over a century ago and stands today as one of Tallahassee's grandest historical monuments. It was once the center of a thriving plantation founded by the Croom family of North Carolina, who in the 1820s sought to revive their fortunes in the newly opened Florida territory. William Warren Rogers and Erica R. Clark tell the story of this family and their legacy, shedding new light on many aspects of antebellum family life, plantation management, and race relations. They describe how brothers Hardy and Bryan Croom developed Goodwood Plantation to over four thousand acres with nearly two hundred slaves before Hardy and his family were killed in a shipwreck, and how a twenty-year lawsuit, complicated by questions of survivorship and residency, denied Bryan control of the estate. This meticulously detailed account, drawing extensively on family correspondence and court records, is a story of humaneness, hard work, and family values—but also of selfishness and greed—that reveals an intriguing chapter of southern history.
