'General Leclerc' was the nom de guerre adopted by the Gaullist officer Philippe de Hautcloque, to protect his family in occupied France. He became France's foremost fighting commander, and his armored division (the '2e DB') its most famous formation. Starting as a small scratch force of mostly African troops organised and led by Leclerc in French Equatorial Africa, it achieved early success raiding Italian and German positions in co-operation with Britain's Long Range Desert Group. Following the Allied victory in North Africa it was expanded and reorganised as a US Army-style armoured division, with American tanks and other armoured vehicles. Shipped to the UK, in spring 1944, it was assigned to Patton's US Third Army, landing in time for the Normandy breakout and being given the honour of liberating Paris in August 1944. Combining a thorough analysis of their combat and organisation with detailed colour plates of their uniforms and equipment, this is the fascinating story of Free France's most effective fighting force.

Ibuprofen is widely used throughout the world for a variety of conditions. This reference work provides a comprehensive and critical review of the basic science and clinical aspects of the drug. The book begins with the history and development of the drug and its current patterns of use world- wide before moving on to examine its basic pharmaceutical attributes and medicinal chemistry. The properties of various formulations are described (oral prescription and OTC, topical and others) are described. The pharmacokinetics of ibuprofen in animals and humans is discussed - highlighting the factors affecting absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination. The clinical pharmacology and toxicology and the drug's mechanisms of action in different disease states and conditions are covered. The therapeutic uses in various acute and inflammatory conditions is detailed. Also considered are the safety versus efficacy issues and the pharmacoepidemiological data.
