    The German Tiger I was the most feared battle tank of the Second World War. Its invincibility lay in its main gun and heavy defensive armour. Using the successful Haynes Manual format, the Tiger Tank Manual gives an insight into acquiring, owning and operating one of these awesome fighting vehicles. The Tank Museum's Tiger '131' forms the centrepiece of this manual, which includes full photographic coverage of the strip-down of '131' and its engine. Vivid personal recollections describe what it was like to command a Tiger in war.

A commentator said the plotters wanted to kill "80,000" Jordanians and had targeted the prime minister's office, intelligence headquarters and the U.S. Embassy.

But he says some of the windows were left open. When he looked inside, he saw "Edwards" decals being attached to the plane's fuselage, then quickly covered with brown paper and masking tape. When Smith got home that...

They said it was probably nothing urgent, so don't worry unless it comes back on. Well of course, it came back on. The only...
