1-GIM017 GIANTS IN MINIATURE - Wellington Sir Arthur Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington. Arguably, one of Britain's greatest commanders, famous for his success on the battlefields of the world, from India to Belgium, Assaye to Waterloo. We've chosen to depict him in the 'campaign dress' he adopted during his time in India and wore throughout the Peninsular Campaign, the blue coat, white trousers and tall riding boots most often associated with him. Famous for his eye for 'ground', he is shown making use of a telescope, perhaps spying out a suitable area of high ground to place his regiments upon. Often reserved but always exuding an inner confidence, he was a commander that both valued and cursed his men in equal measure.

This is a limited edition figure. Each miniature comes in a numbered gift box.

1-SWX70 STAR WARS X-WING: M12-L Kimogila Fighter Produced by MandalMotors and flown by enforcers of the Hutt kajidics and other criminal cartels, the M12-L Kimogila fighter was dreaded by spacers across the Outer Rim for its ordnance capacity and the withering torrents of coordinated fire it could unleash. The M12-L Kimogila Expansion Pack brings this heavy fighter to life in X-Wing as a blunt instrument that trades maneuverability for raw destructive power. Its pre-painted miniature starfighter comes with four ship cards and ten upgrades, many of which reward you for catching your foes in the ship`s new bullseye firing arc. 1 vol, 1 pgs 2017 US, FANTASY FLIGHT GAMES

1-218491 Stallard, John CRUEL SEAS: Royal Navy Vosper MTB Flotilla Six Vosper MTBs (3 early and 3 late): 1/300 Scale.

At the outbreak of war, Britain had 3 formed MTB flotillas, precious few to cover the world's largest empire. But with judicious use of what were pre-war civilian boatyards and the huge resources of their empire and help from the USA, the Coastal Forces would in 1944 have 25,000 sailors in over 2000 small craft.

These Flotillas, enhanced by Commonwealth, Dutch, Norwegian, French, and other free forces sank over 400 enemy vessels, including 48 E-boats and 32 midget submarines. They also accounted for 32 Axis aircraft and fired in total 1169 very expensive torpedoes. This impressive tactical achievement contributed mightily to the allied strategic successes. It ensured that Britain was not isolated for trade. It put a stranglehold on Axis Supply lines and ultimately formed a force that could not be resisted. 1 vol, 6 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-218492 Stallard, John CRUEL SEAS: US Navy PT Boat Flotilla Contains: Six PT boats (3x Elco and 3x Higgins) 1/300 Scale.

On December 7th, 1941, the US Navy could only boast 3 squadrons of motor torpedo boats, or PT boats (patrol torpedo) as they were named. PT squadron 1 was based on Pearl Harbor and the 12 boats opened fire on the incoming Japanese bombers, claiming 2 planes downed for sure and others damaged. Squadron 2 was based in Manila Bay of the Philippines and had a similar introduction to their war, shooting down a few attackers and learning that fast boats were a tricky target for bombers. Squadron 3 was in New York working up and would later see great service in Guadalcanal.

The PT boats fought all over the globe, from Pearl Harbor to the Philippines, the Adriatic and Mediterranean and also in the English Channel. They achieved many successes, particularly in the last two years of the Pacific War they accounted for many stalking float planes and many hundreds of barges which were the lifeblood of the overextended Japanese army. This barge hunting was a grueling business and needed a certain ruthlessness on the behalf of the American crews, Japanese soldiers and sailors being loath to surrender, hence a grizzly end to many a barge crew. 1 vol, 6 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-218493 Stallard, John CRUEL SEAS: Kriegsmarine S-boat Flotilla Contains: six E-boats (3x S-38 and 3x S-100) 1/300 Scale.

The Schnellboat or 'E Boat' as the British Admiralty called them, E for enemy, was a truly formidable beast, in many ways incomparable in detail to the other nation's boats. In sheer size alone, the E boat was much, much bigger. Allied boats tended to be 70-80 feet in length, the E boat 115 feet long, and the laws of physics, though complex, favor a larger hull for speed over a shorter one.

German engineering also gave them another advantage, as when speed reached 25 knots, a crank mechanism when turned moved 2 side rudders to flare, symmetrically outward at 30 degrees, creating an air-filled hollow space, the so-called Lurssen effect. This gave three distinct advantages, greater speed, a reduction in the tell-tale wake of the speeding boat, and finally settled the boat in a more efficient plane, leaving the vessel shallower in the water, most useful in mine and torpedo infested waters and remarkable for a boat weighing in at 100 tons! 1 vol, 6 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

Great Britain never built a vessel as fast or as deadly as the E-boats, instead, fielding many types of MTB and motor gunboats. After a slow start, the Royal Navy helped by construction in the USA, Canada and India, built an extraordinary catalogue of excellent small boats, supported by larger vessels which gave serious firepower and, using the characteristics of each boat to maximum effect, fielded mixed formations supported by destroyers or powerful gun equipped LCTs. They generally fought at night and using radar and radiotelephone, coupled with RAF and fleet air arm support and even secret information from intercepts they fought the Kriegsmarine to a standstill and by 1944, with hugely superior numbers and technological advantage truly ruled any waters which they chose to dominate. 1 vol, 7 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

By 1941 there were 29 total PTs in the US Navy, but by December 1943 there were 29 squadrons. Indeed, by the end of the war the small ships, PT's LCI etc. numbered 7,000 craft of 80 types. Many Early PT boats had up to four torpedoes and two twin .50 Cal guns in powered mounting, a heavy load for the day. As with most American hardware, this was only the start. Soon a 20mm was added at the stern as standard, useful for surface or air action. Then, enterprising crews frustrated by strafing the tough Japanese barges to negligible effect mounted a USAAF 37mm automatic gun (acquired from an Air Cobra) and found it most effective.

Indeed, America had not been blind to the possibilities of the coming war and took great pains to watch and learn from her allies and foes so that when war came, America was ready to put into place a building program that dwarfed all the other navies combined and led to the naval dominance that she still enjoys today. 1 vol, 7 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

The German Navy was only raised in 1871, with a brief to concentrate on the North Sea and Baltic Coasts. Perhaps because of its youth, the Kriegsmarine was quick to appreciate the power of the humble torpedo that could cripple or kill a vessel worth millions of marks. They were thus also keen to develop the promise of the torpedo boat, cheap, potentially deadly, and of great use in restricted waters. 1 vol, 7 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

Cruel Seas focuses on the cat and mouse hunts that happened nightly in the Philippines, Guadalcanal and the Solomon's. They could be IJN sub chasers stalking a crippled US submarine, or mine layers playing their trade at night. Most commonly it will be Japanese barge convoys defending themselves in shallow water against rapacious PT boats. Turning the tables, a late war game could be played out with American landing ships and the terrifying Shin'yo Kamikaze craft.

The IJN, therefore, is an interesting mixture of the very sophisticated and the very amateur, boldness being a connecting factor whether in battleships or tiny craft. It is a do or die force, get in close and things will go well, dither or maintain the range of the allied technology and firepower will overreach you. 1 vol, 17 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

And if there is no commission to be had, they will make a pretense of one and attack the Spanish anyway. They are naturally armed as are the English buccaneers and French flibustiers, both of whom are in their number: with flintlock musket (usually a fusil boucanier), cartouche box of thirty cartridges, a pistol or two, and a cutlass);

or as Logwood Cutters (Logwood cutters were rough men who labored for months at a time standing knee-deep in water while they chopped down logwood trees, a valuable dyewood. Many logwood cutters drifted through a variety of trades, including buccaneering, treasure hunting, and even local whaling, leaving them with a variety of skills that made them useful to a various military and quasi-military and naval expeditions).

1-451511201 Warlord Games, Clockwork Goblin KONFLIKT '47: Japanese Starter Set June 1947. The Imperial Japanese Army is consolidating its position after almost 16 years of war, first with China, then in a brief struggle with the Soviet Union and later against the US and British Commonwealth. With major gains on the Asian mainland and still holding territory across the Pacific, the Japanese Army is under pressure but holding firm.

New Rift-tech weaponry is appearing in greater numbers and the Allies political uncertainty plays to Japan's advantage. The fortitude and fanaticism of the Japanese soldier remains a potent force, but it's the Rift-tech Scorpion light walker that terrifies its enemies, a stealthy machine with a powerful weapon load. As Walker technology advances, the humble tank may become obsolete, but in the meantime, the Rift-tech weaponry upgrades keep the proven Type 97-Kai Shinhoto Chi-Ha in the front line, its compression cannon capable of defeating infantry and Allied tanks alike.

This Konflikt '47 starter set provides the men and machines needed to finally push the Allies out of Asia and ensure the domination for the Emperor.

Ready a new age of Japanese warfare. This starter set contains:
* An A5 softback Konflikt '47 rulebook
* 1 Scorpion light Walker (resin & metal)
* 1 Chi-Ha medium tank with compression cannon (resin, metal & plastic)
* 24 Japanese infantry (plastic)
* 5 Japanese Battle Exoskeleton Infantry (metal)

Without the hindrance of terrain you can guarantee they can get to their target double-time.

Combined with intensive training and indoctrination, the unit has proven highly effective in combat, although is only used when causalities are anticipated to be minimal.

The Soviets used bear DNA to create an 8-foot-tall man/bear hybrid that could go toe-to toe with any enhanced infantry on the battlefields of 1947. Powerful, but lacking control, the Ursus soldiers were often unleashed in highly contested areas of the battlefield to tip the balance of favor towards the Soviet army.

The Ursus are nearly unbeatable in combat, both tough and strong, they'll be able to hack down any enemy troops foolish enough to stand in their way. Give them supporting fire so they can advance unhindered or use a transport (a standard truck can carry 5 Ursus infantry) as an ideal way of getting this death squad in amongst the enemy front line. 1 vol, 8 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-452410201 Warlord Games, Clockwork Goblin KONFLIKT '47: German 28mm Zeus Heavy Panzermech The Zeus panzermech was built to operate as a tank hunter in difficult terrain or to assist the Thor panzermechs in reaching their urban targets. Unsuited to the urban role, once the Thors were delivered to the target, the Zeus often protected the flanks of an assault, preventing enemy armour from cutting off the attacking forces' lines of supply.

Whilst it's main purpose is being support and protecting flanks, it is nearly just as capable as the Thor panzermechs to be on the front. But, putting Thor and Zeus panzermechs together would even make the earth tremble.

Certainly being a tough nut to crack, you can place the Zeus into any combat situation and nearly guarantee it's survival. As perfect as it looks as a centre piece it also becomes the ideal distraction. So big and deadly your opponent will be avoiding it completely or throwing everything they have it at. Use that time to strike!

1-452410205 Warlord Games, Clockwork Goblin KONFLIKT '47: German 28mm Thor Heavy Panzermech The Thor panzermech is designed to enter the toughest urban environments and deal with entrenched infantry. Well armoured and armed it does its job far too well for most opponent's liking. First fielded alongside the Zeus in April 1946, the Thor was the Rift-tech inspired, original design that was later modified to create the Zeus. Developed to provide infantry in urban combat zones a form of mobile pillbox, the lessons identified in Stalingrad, Warsaw and Brussels were clearly a large part of the Thor's design criteria.

Armored all round to protect it from flanking infantry, the Thor carries a 150mm howitzer capable of reducing any building or strong point to rubble. Its 20mm autocannon provides some protection from infantry or light vehicles, but it expects accompanying panzer grenadiers to keep it safe from the enemy at close quarters. Able to navigate the rubble-strewn streets of an urban battlefield, the Thor pushes relentlessly forward, knocking out enemy positions one after another, its lack of speed rarely an issue in the close-quarter battles for which it was designed. 1 vol, 1 pgs 2017 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-452410403 Warlord Games, Clockwork Goblin KONFLIKT '47: US Kodiak Walker Box contains 1 metal model. Requires assembly.

As the US developed walker tactics for regiments of Grizzly and Bruin walkers it became apparent that an antiaircraft capability was required; wheeled and tracked systems were unable to coordinate with the walkers in urban or close terrain.

Enter the Kodiak. With the removal of the 75mm gun, the Kodiak is agile and able to deliver a storm of heavy caliber rounds when defending against aircraft. In addition, it is a popular walker with troops in close quarters -- its weaponry capable of decimating enemy infantry if they are foolish enough to give it a target.

The Kodiak is perfect for the front line as it is able to dish out an insane amount of bullets, easily taking out entire squads and lighting up lightly armored vehicles. It can also be situated in an elevated position providing a considerable amount of supporting fire and it'll usually become the main threat on any battlefield. 1 vol, 8 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-452410803 Warlord Games, Clockwork Goblin KONFLIKT '47: Soviet Mammoth Walker Having suffered terribly at the hands of German Thor and Zeus heavy panzermechs, the Soviets put a tremendous effort into replicating their effect. After capturing a Thor, they were able to replicate much of the multi-leg technology.

Picturing the Mammoth as a mobile bunker rather than a combat vehicle, they returned to the multi-turret concept of the mid-war years. With better armour and weapons, its performance far outweighs its predecessors such as the T-35.

Literally a mobile weapons platform there is nothing this beast can't do. With such a variety of weapons, the Mammoth can literally take on whole platoons on it's own and it's strong enough to take the hits back!

Resilient and boasting a 'super bazooka' -- which does as much damage as you think it'll do -- the Heavy Bazooka team can reliably take out nearly any armour. Make sure they are comfy behind some cover or outflank their opponent and shove a rocket into the rear-end of an unsuspecting tank! 1 vol, 8 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-2134810 TEST OF HONOUR: The Onna-Bugeisha of Asakura Onna-Bugeisha, female martial artists, are members of the samurai class and noblewomen trained to fight for their homes, their honor, and their family. These women were not ornaments; they were as dangerous as their male counterparts, amply able to defend their homes and property while the armies were away on campaign. Historically, Onna-Bugeisha have been associated with the Naginata and Kaiken as fighting weapons; one very long and one very short! That is not to say they were limited to those weapons and yumi, yari, katana, and teppo all feature in an Onna-Bugeisha's armory.

Onna-Bugeisha have existed as long as there have been people on the Japanese archipelago although not named as such until much later. The earliest ones being as much myth as a legend, including the very real Empress Jingu (169-269 AD), widow of the Emperor Chuai. She is purported to have led an invasion of Korea which was known for its success without any casualties. Living to 100 years old she is still honored today and often held as an example of everything the Onna-Bugeisha symbolize.

The warlord studio has worked hard to bring you these stunning and intricately detailed models, perhaps some of the best we have made!

The box set contains: 7 metal 28mm Onna-Bugeisha models, cards to play Test Of Honour, and a campaign rules booklet. 1 vol, 7 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-214040 Chadwick, Frank ARMIES OF OCTOBER: Armies and Weapons of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War In October of 1973 the Arab armies of Egypt, Syria, and almost a dozen other states launched a surprise attack against the Israeli-occupied territories in the Sinai and Golan Heights.

This offers a comprehensive study of the belligerent armies available under a single cover. For the armies of Israeli, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the Palestinian Liberation Army.

The Armies of October features:

* Army organization
* Doctrinal strengths and weaknesses
* Detailed notes on equipment holdings
* Order of battle down to the battalion level

For Command Decision players we also include game organizations from division to battalion level and a complete list of weapons and combat vehicles with all game statistics.

The October War, the Yom Kippur War, the Ramadan War-all these names described the largest and hardest-fought war in the long history of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Never was there a conflict of this scope, featuring this much back-and-forth maneuver, or such dramatic turns of fortune. For the wargamer, this conflict provides armies more balanced in equipment and capabilities than any other Mideast war. It also saw the first widespread use of wire-guided antitank missiles and the first major generation of post-WWII armored vehicles.

The October War provides a unique conflict for study and gaming, a blend of the logical development of WWII weapon systems encountering the early examples of late-century military technology in the form of wire-guided missiles, extensive mechanization throughout the force structure, and omnipresent light antitank weapons. 1 vol, 100 pgs 2017 US, TEST OF BATTLE GAMES

1-38090 Featherstone, Donald F., edited by John Curry WARGAMES THROUGH THE AGES: Volume 2: A Wargaming Guide to 1420 to 1783 Reprint. Wargames through the Ages was first published to fill a gap in literature of the hobby of wargaming. The major wars and battles were listed, so that further information could be obtained by reading other accounts of these conflicts and the biographies of those leaders.

After many years of research and writing on the subject of wargaming, Donald Featherstone provided, under one cover, all the information that a wargamer required to build up armies -- details include uniforms, arms, equipment, leaders, tactics, and style of fighting.

Each section details techniques and style of fighting of the various nations and armies and other suggestions how they could best be simulated on the tabletop battlefield. Drawings of the soldiers in their various uniforms add much to the attractiveness of this reprinted book. 1 vol, 190 pgs 2017 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

1-210346 Grant, Charles REFIGHTING HISTORY: Volume 6 - The Seven Years War: Moys, Mehr, Eilenburg, Baiersdorf and Closter Camp Covers the mid 18th century and the Seven Years War with five battles in a four-part format: background, detailed history with orders of battle, consideration on how to wargame the battle, and finally the wargame itself.

The five battles covered range from the relatively large battle at Moys to a small skirmish near Baiersdorf. Actions at Mehr and Eilenburg provided interesting challenges for both players. The Battle of Closter Camp presents the opportunity for considerable confusion with the early part of the action taking place in the dark.

The chapter on Command and Staff looks at the various staff structures in the major armies before looking at the wargame implications. There have been a number of significant changes in The Wargame Rules since they were published in 2012 and these changes are summarized in a short chapter. Finally, this includes an index to all previous battles covered in the series. 1 vol, 176 pgs 2018 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-15010 Quarrie, Bruce TANK BATTLES IN MINIATURES #5: Arab-Israeli Wars Bruce Quarrie (1947-2004) was a prolific author and military historian. He wrote over 40 titles and edited many more. This outstanding work is a detailed introduction to the Arab-Israeli Wars between 1948 and 1973.

That area saw four major campaigns, of which those of 1967 and 1973 -- the so-called 'Six Day War' and 'Yom Kippur Wars' -- are of particular interest to wargamers. These wars involved large tank battles between Centurions, Pattons, and M-60s and Arab T-54s and T-62s.

The book provides detailed technical information on the weapon systems, army organization and tactical use, and numerous suggestions for their accurate recreation in miniature. Includes wargaming rules for these conflicts. Reprint of original. 1 vol, 153 pgs 2017 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

1-914135 various VAE VICTIS #135 Game: Bautzen 1945

In mid-April 1945 the 2nd Polish Army, left wing of the 1st Ukraine Front, broke the German lines and occupied Bautzen. Then, the Polish commander, Karol Swierczewski, a veteran of the Spanish Civil War, decided to keep advancing further south, with the capital of Saxony, Dresden, as their objective. Judging the Germans defeated, the Southern flank was left relatively unguarded. Army Group Centre, however, still had some fight left launching a last offensive against the flank of the Polish-Soviet forces, in the hope of helping Berlin-it was truly the last panzer offensive of the war.
Although the counteroffensive failed to stop the Soviet advance or relieve Berlin, the Germans inflicted a sound tactical defeat to the 2nd Polish Army (more than 20,000 casualties), recovering Bautzen and holding it until the end of the war. Bautzen 1945 is a simulation of that momentous offensive, using an evolution of the Ebre 38 system published in Vae Victis 61 with daily turns.

Game scales:
brigades and regiments

1-914136 various VAE VICTIS # 136 Game: Summer of the Boxes

Recreates the siege of the Legations, the great colonial power at the end of the 19th century, in Beijing in the summer of 1900 during the Boxer Rebellion. In this one-player game, the player controls the soldiers who defended the legations against the hordes of Boxers, controlled by an original system that manages their actions and combats. The player's goal is to hold on until the arrival of the rescue column, sent by land to lift the siege.

The map represents the Legation Quarter on a scale of 15cm for 500 meters. A turn represents one day and the same day can be divided into several combat phases that represent the Boxers' assaults. There is no turn counter and a deck of 54 cards must be used; each card drawn represents a day. Nine of the cards are combat cards. Once the phase system has been assimilated, it is simple to use. Plan on 3-4 hours for game play.

Opposing three corps (one Bavarian and two Prussian), Douay's division held the town and the heights of Geisberg until early afternoon before yielding to the mass. In Spicheren, on 6 August, the 2nd French corps had a good position and blocked the Prussian troops into the night at the risk of being outflanked. Their retreat was ill-prepared and caused the rest of the Lorraine army to retreat to the walls of Metz.

1-1994017 BOLT ACTION: Campaign Sea Lion - Part 2: Operation Gigant Operation Sea Lion has proceeded, both sides have lost a lot and as a result the remainder of the German forces have been pushed to Kent where they prepare their defenses against the inevitable British attack. The German high command refuse to let their blitzkrieg falter at this stage and concoct a brave, audacious and completely unexpected plan...

Operation Gigant is phase two of the theoretical Operation Sea Lion plan to invade Britain. It has been brought forward and into action since phase one faltered and the Germans were pushed back to Kent. Glider borne troops and vehicles are bought in to create a surprise second front in North East England, splitting the British defenses still further and driving a steel wedge down through the heart of the British countryside!

Packed with new units to defend (or destroy) Britain's defenses, new scenarios on what could of been historical battles, reconstruct your whole army with new theater selectors and more off-the-wall special rules dedicated to the scientific wonders created to invade, and defend, Britain.

This time however, the Panzerbrigades will leave their treads within the mud of the British countryside and over the rubble of humble villages. With the Germans coming into Britain once again but with their complete force, can the British and the remaining Allies hold the Germans off again? Or will the German war machine repeat their success in France and steamroll over Britain? 1 vol, 88 pgs 2017 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-201343 DEAD MAN'S HAND: The Curse of Dead Man's Hand You need a copy of the Dead Man's Hand rule book to use this source book. The Curse of Dead Man's Hand contains rules for running multi-player campaigns, 10 new scenes and four new gang types: The Baron, The Seven, Mountain Men, and The Malevolent Seven. The book comes with a deck of 16 special cards for the four new gang types plus an extra eight optional cards for fighting The Baron.

The curse has finally come -- time to put petty rivalries aside and stand together against an enemy who shows no mercy, who will take it all, and leave you with nothing, not even your soul.

The Curse of Dead Man's Hand and it's contents can be used in several ways. The gangs contained within can be added to the normal roster of gangs in the usual way to play games of DMH. Each gang comes with all the information that you need to use it in a standard Legend of Dead Man's Hand campaign. The Barons gang has to be used in as lightly different way as he is not interested in the petty rivalries of men, he is only interested in one thing, the destruction of mankind and the swelling of his host.

The other option that the book contains is a two player narrative campaign between the Baron and whichever gang feels that it is brave enough to try to stop him. The campaign follows a story line with the combatants trying to wrestle control of DMH from the other. Each game leads to another and the result of each game has consequences and directs future game play. 1 vol, 32 pgs 2017 UK, GREAT ESCAPE GAMES

The book also holds additional materials for Denmark's enemies: the Swedes. These include the elite veterans of Carl X Gustav that attacked Denmark in 1657 as well as their opposite in terms of training and experience -- the Swedish territorial defense forces.

The supplement also includes organizational structures and descriptions of forces of the anti-Swedish alliance: the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (led by the famous Czarniecki's division), Brandenburg, the Holy Roman Empire and the Netherlands. 1 vol, 88 pgs 2017 POLAND, BY FIRE AND SWORD

1-213410 COMRADES IN BATTLE: ACW Skirmish Rules New card-driven rules for American Civil War 1861 - 1865 skirmishing.

Based in our well known game Company Commander with modifications to re-scale the game for more full skirmish actions. For those who regularly play table top wargames, the concept will provide them with a different experience that gives a true flavor of small actions involving just a few men up to a small squad.

For example: a Confederate cavalry raiding party arrive at a small but key railway junction where they tear up the lines and pile the wooden sleepers for burning. The main body move off to the next objective, while a dozen men, under the command of a Sergeant-major, remain behind to ensure the sleepers are beyond use. Suddenly, they hear the approach of footsteps which can only be the enemy. It's too late to dash for freedom so they will have to fight.

Fortunately, the enemy is only a little stronger in numbers than them, so they are hopeful of a good outcome. This is just one scenario that the players' imaginations might come up with. In the rulebook, there are others. 1 vol, 50 pgs 2013 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-215070 TRIBAL: Honour is Everything (Skirmish Rules) Tribal the skirmish combat game in a pre-gunpowder tribal/clan setting. In this book you get: the basic rules; optional rules for missile fire, dirty tricks and honor pools, four scenarios you can play in a variety of tribal settings; in-depth explanation of culture, weapons and combat for Maori, Vikings, Aztecs, and Gladiators; extra rules for Stone-Age, Heian Japanese, and Iroquois.

Firstly, honor is used to drive the narrative of the game. Players are rewarded in honor for the things that they do in the battle. Honor determines who wins Tribal rather than the normal determinants of wargames (killing enemy/taking ground). In turn, honor is a dynamic part of the game -- it can be won and lost during combat, the deeds of combatants can win or lose honor, players can spend honor to do 'dirty tricks' to win combats etc.

Secondly, the game is played with a normal deck of cards. Cards determine movement, unit activation and - most importantly - combat. While cards still have the randomness of the draw from the deck, players can actually be involved in the combat through playing/holding particular cards. Attacking, defending, waiting for an opening, bluffing the opponent - these are all strategies the player can use in a round of Tribal combat. There are plans for future supplements involving Stone-Age cave wars, Modern-Day rioting/Gang warfare, and Polynesian Islanders. 1 vol, 26 pgs 2017 AUSTRALIA, MANA PRESS

1-216070 'NAM: The Vietnam War Miniatures Game Vietnam. In a small corner of the world, one of the most bloody wars to be fought occurred in this small county in Southeast Asia. Traditionally framed as a war of small skirmishes, long patrols, and guerilla ambushes, there is a lot more that happened, including full-scale offensives and pitched battles.

The US and its allies have all the advantages of mobility and firepower. The ubiquitous Huey helicopter has become a symbol of the war itself as it carries troops into battle and unloads rockets on the enemy. Heavily armed flotillas sail up the windy Mekong Delta. Heavy tanks and M113 'tracks' bash their way through the jungle searching for enemy strong points, and resolute 'grunts' hold firebases against fierce enemy assaults.

Meanwhile, the Nationalists have all the advantages of the home team. They fight as guerillas, choosing the time and place of major operations or surprise attacks and appearing from nowhere to ambush enemy hunting them. When the time is right, they even commit their tanks, armored personnel carriers, and seasoned troops into the fray to achieve total victory.

1-216091 SAGA AGE OF VIKINGS: Saga Supplement for 2nd edition Saga The attack on the monastery of Lindisfarne in 793 marked the beginning of the story of the Vikings -- also known as the Northmen, Sea Wolves, and Scourge of the Faithful.

SAGA Age of Vikings covers Europe from the emergence of the Norse kingdoms to the Battle of Hastings with 12 factions covering all four corners of Europe during this period, each with its own Battle Board, history, legendary units and special rules. Also includes rules for mercenary units and an appendix on Relics & Artifacts.

1-216099 SAGA: Book of Battles The Book of Battles is a supplement divided into five sections: Skirmishes, Battles, Legends, Mass Battles, and Sagas. It is not a SAGA Universe, but a collection of scenarios and game variants that can be applied to any Universe in which you decide to play. It is therefore a perfect complement to the rulebook, a companion that enlarges its horizons by proposing alternatives to the basic Clash of Warlords scenario.

SKIRMISHES: Offers only one scenario, Battle of Heroes, and a multitude of possible combinations (more than 5,000), guaranteeing almost infinite re-playability. Skirmishes offer balanced games, and require no specific terrain pieces or particular rules not already included in Clash of Warlords. Thus, any group of players with access to the terrain pieces used in Clash of Warlords can play multiple variations of Battle of Heroes.

BATTLES: Before presenting the battle scenarios, this chapter offers a set of special rules specific to these scenarios, notably covering new terrain types, like buildings. Battles offer balanced encounters, but require specific terrain pieces, or the introduction of particular rules which can give an advantage to certain ways of assembling a warband. They are also noticeably more complex than Clash of Warlords and Battle of Heroes, but also offer very unusual situations for your Warlord to test himself against.

LEGENDS: Covers narrative scenarios that tell an interesting story rather than providing a perfectly balanced struggle. It will suit players wishing to explore SAGA in a different, less competitive, and more narrative way. They sometimes place constraints on how warbands are assembled, in order to save the story from the excesses of gamers! Thus, it is best to agree with your opponent in advance that you will play a legend during your session, so that each player can bring an appropriate warband. Includes a collection of special rules that will be used in these specific scenarios.

MASS BATTLES: Deals with games of three or four players and presents several scenarios designed to play SAGA with three or four players. Mass Battles are a unique chance to appreciate SAGA with every member of a gaming group, each one leading their own warband. The balance depends as much on the warbands involved as the relations between the players; some scenarios will win renown for the most diplomatic players, and others the most opportunistic.

SAGAS: Covers the linking of games into an overarching saga. Rather than detailing a traditional and constraining campaign system, the Sagas chapter offers a simple experience system, allowing your Warlord to increase his influence and develop new talents. 1 vol, 50 pgs 2018 UK, STUDIO TOMAHAWK

1-66100 FLINT AND FEATHER: Starter Box - Rulebook, Figures and Dice Flint and Feather is a tabletop game and range of quality miniatures designed to capture the excitement and color of warfare in this era of dark forests and silvered waterways!

An incredible civilization once occupied the region surrounding the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River water shed, long before the arrival of Europeans to the continent. These peoples lived by farming, trade, hunting and fishing and had developed a society with rich mythological traditions and complex inter-societal relationships that often led them into conflict with one another.

The Huron or Wendat Confederation was a powerful Great Lakes Nation that occupied a central position of control over ancient North American trade routes before and after the arrival of Europeans to the continent. The wealth and influence that this control garnered led them into direct rivalry with the Haudenosaunee Five Nations, known to us now as The Iroquois.

The Haudenosaunee Confederation was comprised of the Mohawk, Oneida, Cayuga, Onondaga, and Seneca tribes. Their great skills as warriors and statesmen would eventually make them the most powerful Indian nation of Eastern North America and this importance would remain well into the historic colonial era.

Everything you need to start playing Flint & Feather!

1-211720 Ayres, Nick 3RD GENERATION WARFARE From platoon to battalion and larger sized formations. These rules are designed to accommodate figure scales of 6, 15, 20, 25 and 28mm with the onus on a personal favorite 20mm. Designed to be a simple set of rules that are fast to learn and play but accuracy has not been sacrificed for playability.

Many modern rules focus on adding as much detail as they possibly can with tables for almost every conceivable situation that may arise on the battlefield. Third Generation Warfare uses just a couple of key tables and charts that cover almost all of the rules including movement, anti-tank fire, air to ground fire, artillery, and morale.

A traditional turn-based system that focuses on command and control where command elements generate a number of 'command dice' that when rolled and totaled gives a commander a number of activations for units to complete actions.

Divided into a number of core sections the rules show you the commander how to build an effective battle group which is the basic building block of an armies fighting force. Then calculate your battle groups total command which is converted in to actions that can be used in a variety of ways to move units around the battlefield and conduct fire against the enemy using a variety of different fire methods including direct, indirect and area fire. As the game progresses and casualties are taken, the command total reduces and as a consequence so does the number of actions generated by the battlegroup making it a fine balance between activating key units and not leaving others vulnerable to attack.

A number of add-on supplements include stats for over 1500 different weapon systems which really gives a commander a wealth of military hardware to choose from. There are detailed TO&E and OOB for nearly 100 different countries world wide. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2015 UK, SILVER BULLET PRODUCTIONS

Perhaps instead you could as Peter battle the Ottomans on the river Prut. 1 vol, 104 pgs 2018 US, ON MILITARY MATTERS

1-213900 Brown, David GENERAL d'ARMEE: Rules for Age of Napoleon First, General d'Armee has no set figure scale as mentioned above, so players will find it easier to field the battalions and regiments required, as they can suit the figure scale to their armies.

Secondly, General d'Armee has a command and control system that concentrates on taskings and actions for brigades as well as certain brigade orders. Thus you can order your artillery to 'redouble their efforts' in order to overwhelm the enemy line, likewise you can do similar with skirmishers before sending in an infantry or cavalry assault. This has the added bonus it that can create those distinct bombardment/skirmish/assault phases of Napoleonic warfare during the game. Combined with this there is also your dollop of friction, as players cannot guarantee that their brigades will act as desired every turn.

Although General d'Armee has battalions as its tactical units, the focus is actually far more on brigades being committed into action with brigade outcomes. Thus you can see brigade attacks of three or four units and defending as a whole brigade, rather than individual units, (although this is also recreated). Therefore entire brigades can be committed and can be successful or defeated.

Firing for all troops types is particularly streamlined and simple to run through, with just negative modifiers thus making it far easier for players to apply. Positive modifiers are achieved by simply adding casualty dice, which hit on a straightforward score of 4, 5, or 6. In addition to this there is no figure removal, the rules represent battlefield attrition and as you move through the casualty levels a units overall battle performance will decline in across the board in firing, charge combat, melee and morale.

Finally there's no morale phase, which I found always slowed and interrupted the gaming process. Morale is either dealt with immediately upon the morale's situation arising, while all recovery and rally aspects are dealt with entirely through the command phase and brigade command rolls. (Players of Pickett's Charge will know exactly how this works.).

All this combines into a very different type of game that moves along quickly, thus is able to cater for quite large games, anything from divisional actions right through to large multi-corps battles for those day long or even weekend long games! 1 vol, 106 pgs 2017 UK, TOO FAT LARDIES

1-215240 Chandler, John and Curry, John JOHN CANDLER'S (1964) MINIATURE WARGAMES: Napoleonic Wargaming du Temps de Napoleon Around the time Donald Featherstone published War Games in 1962, the book that was key in launching modern hobby wargames, others were publishing comprehensive sets of rules. This example by John Candler was published in the United States in 1964 and was one of the better known.

The original rules were published in a green ring binder, with 123 pages of detailed rules for a Napoleonic land and sea wargame. They covered all aspects necessary to play a detailed Napoleonic wargame on the tabletop. They were more complex than Featherstone's rules, but lacked the literary charm of the former. They are published by the History of Wargaming Project in order to preserve an example of early wargaming rules from the dawn of modern wargaming. 1 vol, 120 pgs 2017 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

1-215870 Curry, John and Getz, Jim DUKE SEIFRIED: And the Development of American Miniature Wargaming It is impossible to discuss the development of early American miniature wargaming without discussing Duke and the many people he collaborated with over the years. Uncle Duke is one of those larger than life characters who helped develop miniature wargaming in the United States. The Jack Scruby Award (1995) summarized him as an American original, an entrepreneur, business man, master sculptor, designer, and painter, a rule writer, publisher, and historian, a master showman, salesman, and advocate. He was also a good friend of Donald Featherstone.

The book includes: The Jack Scruby Award 1995 citation; The MWAN tribute of 1989 by Hal Thinglum; Early memories of American miniature wargaming and reflections by Duke and his lifelong friend Jim Getz; Many previously unpublished photographs of early games;

The book also includes two complete key sets of rules that were a huge influence on American wargaming: Melee (1960) by Duke; and Napoleonique: A Miniature Wargame Strategic -- Tactical Maneuver in the Napoleonic Era (1979) Written by Jim Getz with the assistance of Duke Seifried. 1 vol, 119 pgs 2017 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

1-205982 Elliot, Ged IN THE GRANDEST MANNER COMPANION: Fighting the Russians Before Russia 1805 - 1807 Austerlitz, Eylau and Friedland A Companion to In the Grandest Manner, but compatible with any Napoleonic rules system.

This publication is the second accompaniment to the planned series of 'Companions' to both support and supplement the rules, In The Grandest Manner, with themed scenarios that are developed and played at The Situation Room. To make use of this latest accompaniment to the Companion series, you do not require any specific set of rules, although they are written with the rules mentioned above in mind.

As with the previous Companion, time is spent on exploring the intricacies of the rules which the Companions support. In this edition, the focus is the section that governs Orders and Command & Control. In-depth analysis pertains to Skirmishers and how they are used in the battles.

Scenarios are based on main battles that involved the Russians prior to 1812. The battles covered are Austerlitz, Eylau, and Friedland. Austerlitz is somewhat unusual, it was split into two separate battles because of its overall size, the northern and southern fronts. Each scenario has a map, full OB and any special rules. Typical dispositions, from the games played here, are also used to illustrate the scenarios. 1 vol, 88 pgs 2017 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-210994 Flaherty, C. NAPOLEONIC OTTOMAN ARMY: Miniatures Rules Supplement Volume Four of Partizan Press' Universal Wargames Rules Supplements for the later 18th century and Napoleonic-era Ottoman armies. Includes scenarios and campaign options for an Ottoman army against other Ottoman, Russian, Austrian, French, or British armies to represent any of the major conflicts from the 1780s to 1814.

Wargaming with a later 18th century or Napoleonic period Ottoman army presents some challenges as the Ottomans did not follow many of the military conventions of the period. This book covers organization, tactics, and rules modifications intended to showcase the Ottoman's warfighting style. The organization and fighting concepts employed by the Ottomans were developed based on an ethos of individual martial prowess and expertise in the use of the sword - the formidable scimitars. The nature of Ottoman warfare led to specialized tactics developed by the Austrians, Russians, and French tailored to fighting the Ottomans.

The book includes an end-section listing a selection of 25-28mm scale metal, resin, and hard plastic Ottoman figures and accessories that could be used to develop a wargaming army for the later 18th century and Napoleonic period. 1 vol, 56 pgs 2018 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

The rules are replete with company build lists, victory criteria, and war and battle sketch outline.

By using squares it is clearer to the player what scenery the men are in, without fussing over trivial non important detail.

1-214050 Hasenhauer, Richard BRIGADE FIRE & FURY: 2nd Edition of Fire and Fury Fire and Fury remains one of the most popular historical military miniatures wargames in the hobby. This second edition provides a fresh look at American Civil War combat. The basic unit is the brigade of infantry or cavalry.

A number of factors made the original rules unique and popular. They were easy to learn, quick and fun to play, and incorporated just the right amount of historical detail. Battles could be fought to a near-historical or at least plausible conclusion. The rulebook format, groundbreaking for its time, had clearly written rules with lots of diagrams and color photographs. We tried our best to remain faithful to these attributes while making a few improvements.

We cleaned up or redesigned some 'clunky' game mechanics. We also added just a little more historical detail some players liked from the regimental-level game but still was appropriate at brigade-level. We rewrote the rules, added better organization and more clarity, and redesigned and added more diagrams. We then playtested the rules thoroughly, using historical scenarios as a benchmark. We also included at the back of the book a fictional army generator for playing pick-up games.

Includes full-color photos and diagrams, two quick reference sheets, and three historical battle scenarios:

1. Battle of First Bull Run - 21 Jul 1861 - First major battle in the East.
2. First Day Battle of Gettysburg - 1 Jul 1863 - Opening phase.
3. The Battle of Reams Station - 25 Aug 1864 - Late-war Petersburg Campaign.

Historical battles do not always make for an evenly balanced game, so the special scenario rules and victory conditions are sometimes adjusted to give either side a chance for victory.

Note: BRIGADE Fire & Fury (OMM # 214050) should not be confused with REGIMENTAL Fire & Fury (OMM # 192210), both by Rich, but different battle scales. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 US, FIRE AND FURY

1-214650 Haythornthwaite, Jonathan DRACULA'S AMERICA: Shadows of the West - A Skirmish Wargame It is 1875, and Count Dracula is President of the United States of America.

In the wake of the Civil War, with the country struggling to regain its balance, Dracula seized power. The Count's thralls assassinated President Lincoln and his entire administration in a single night and, in the ensuing chaos, their master made his move. Dominating the Senate, he declared himself President-for-Life, and now rules the Union with fear and an iron fist. His vampiric progeny, the Coven of the Red Hand, infest every strata of society, and enforce Dracula's will with ruthless efficiency.

This is a skirmish game of gothic horror set in an alternate Old West. Secret wars rage across the country -- from bustling boom-towns to the most remote wilderness -- as cults and secret societies fight for power and survival. Players will throw their support behind one of these factions, and will lead a Posse in fast-paced, cinematic battles for dominance and survival. 1 vol, 140 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-214652 Haythornthwaite, Jonathan DRACULA'S AMERICA: Shadows of the West - Forbidden Power Since Dracula's rise to power, a shadow has swept across the nation, but nowhere is it darker than in the Deep South. Throughout the plantations, swamps, and cities, rumors abound of grotesque rituals, hooded figures, and bizarre creatures.

New stealth rules allow for all manner of sneaky and underhanded tactics, while expanded rules for arcane powers offer glory but could cost you your sanity. Alongside these are a host of new scenarios, Hired Guns, monsters, skills, and gear to challenge or assist those who dare venture into the Deep South of Dracula's America. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-1992912 Kinrade, Warwick BATTLEGROUP: Spring Awakening HUNGARY, 1945: The Red Army invaded and pushed the Axis forces west, driving them beyond the Danube river. Budapest is under siege, with its garrison is trapped and fighting a desperate battle. To save them and secure the borders of the Reich, the Axis armies launch three relief operations. Unable to break through, a larger offensive with the last of the panzer divisions is planned for the spring. Operation Spring Awakening will try to drive the Red Army back over the Danube and secure Germany's remaining oil supply; without it, the war will be over.

* BACKGROUND: A general overview of the war in Hungary in 1945, viewed by the Germans as their priority front line. From the siege of Budapest, through relief Operations Konrad I, II, and III, to Operation Spring Awakening and the large Russian counter-offensive that would drive Russian tanks all the way to Vienna.

* ARMY LIST: Designed to be used with the Russian army lists already published in Battlegroup Fall of the Reich, this book contains two new army lists, for the last German panzer divisions and the Hungarian army, as well as alterations to the Russian Fall of the Reich army lists, to better recreate the battles in Hungary in the winter and spring of 1945.

* SPECIAL RULES: New special rules to adapt the core Battlegroup game to the Hungarian battlefields of 1945. The special rules recreate the character of the armored clash, with the last of Germany's panzer forces, SS, and Heer, aided by their rather unreliable Hungarian allies, to face the powerful Russian Tank Corps. All take place in the winter snows and spring thaw mudbath, in the largest clash of late-war heavy armor. This book requires Battlegroup Fall of the Reich to use in full, including its Battle Rating counters.

* CAMPAIGN Six new historical scenarios in a detailed narrative campaign for 1st SS Panzer Division's hard-fought assault along the Sarviz canal during Operation Spring Awakening.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a campaign supplement and a copy of the Ruleset hard back book and Fall of the Reich pdf will be needed to play. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, THE PLASTIC SOLDIER COMPANY

1-199298 Kinrade, Warwick BATTLEGROUP: Torch EGYPT, 1942... After defeat at the Battle of Gazala, the British 8th Army has been chased back through the western deserts, fighting a rearguard action to hold the line near a railway halt called El Alamein. Here, the tide of the desert war would turn decisively in the British's favor. At El Alamein Rommel's weary army was repeatedly defeated and forced into a very long retreat to save itself. Meanwhile, American and British troops land on the shores of Morocco and Algeria in Operation Torch, with the plan to cut-off the Germans by capturing Tunisia. A hard seven-month campaign would follow in the final struggle to capture North Africa.

* BACKGROUND A general overview of the later North Africa campaign, from Gazala, through three battles at El Alamein to Operation Torch and the Allies' attack into Tunisia. With British, American and French forces of 1st Army in the north and 8th Army pursuing Rommel's Panzer Armee Afrika to the Mareth Line, and then beyond, in the south. This book covers the desert fighting from May 1942 to May 1943 and the Axis' ultimate surrender in Tunisia.

* ARMY LISTS Nine army lists designed to be played with the character of the principal combatants for North Africa: the veteran Deutsche Afrikakorps for 1942 and Defenders of Tunisia for 1943, Italian armored and infantry divisions to face British (and Commonwealth) armored and infantry divisions. Also, for Tunisia, the first combat operations for the US 1st Armored Division and US infantry divisions, as well as ex-Vichy French 'March' divisions, now turned against their former Axis allies.

* SPECIAL RULES New special rules to adapt the core Battlegroup rules to the later North African battlefields. Recreating the character of desert fighting, with its dusty conditions, reliance on tank warfare and mobile formations, and the wearing effects of the harsh conditions. Also rules for the colder, muddy, difficult hill-country of northern Tunisia, a very different type of battlefield, all helping to create games with the distinctive feel for the end of the 'desert' war. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, THE PLASTIC SOLDIER COMPANY

2-198510 Langan, Steve and Thomson, Cameron SETTING THE EAST ABLAZE: Warfare in the Back of Beyond 1917-1926 - 2nd Edition Since the 1st edition of this rule set in 2012, Setting the East Ablaze has been successfully adapted back to the colonial wars of the late 19th century and as far forward as modern African and the Middle-Eastern conflicts. What is clear from experience is that these rules work perfectly for all 'small wars' from 1914 to the mid-1930s. Based on the intervening years' experience, there are myriad of changes in here, some simplifications, new rules, and an overall general refinement aimed at making them play even better. We have even added some army guidelines!

The period from the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 to the reestablishment of a 'central' government in Russia by about 1926 offers wargamers a hugely attractive and diverse backdrop in which to game. Armies from all the worlds major powers intervened at one time or another in Russia and the neighboring states of central Asia. Some of them, such as the French intervention in the Ukraine in 1919, were on a major scale. Others were much more along the lines of 'small wars' expeditionary forces of the previous century.

Independent states sprang up, grew strong and were destroyed in the maelstrom that followed the Bolshevik seizure of power. It really was a time of 'Beasts, Men and Gods' to quote the title of Ferdinand Ossendowski's colorful book on one of the periods more dreadful characters, Baron Ungern Von Sternberg. Conflict engulfed a huge area, from the Oder River on the German/Polish border to China and the Far East. Some of these conflicts, such as the Civil War in China, predated the Bolshevik revolution.

All of this offers endlessly interesting scenarios and armies for the creative gamer. The predominant style of warfare was open and mobile. You therefore get to play with all the toys of the first quarter of the 20th century, with none of the tedium of trench warfare. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-210191 Lewis, Mark SWORD AND SPEAR FANTASY: Rules This fantasy ruleset is based on the Sword & Spear ancient and medieval wargames rules which are designed for playing out large battles of the period from about 3000BC to 1500AD. They are an evolution of that ruleset, with rules added to cover all of the required fantasy elements, but at its heart it is the same core mechanisms. Therefore, it has a basis in reality, and should be expected to give realistic outcomes, or at least outcomes that seem reasonable compared to actual historical battles and the fantasy battles of literature and film.

This should be a game that players can pick up and play with relative ease. The turn structure is unusual compared to many other games, but once the activation mechanics are understood it is soon picked up. When a unit is activated it does all of its actions for the turn, so there is not the usual turn sequence of move units, missile shooting, melee combat that you get in many other games. Movement and combat mechanics have been kept simple so that the focus of the game is on command and control. After a game or two it can be played with only the occasional reference to the rulebook, and as there are no tables of dice roll modifiers, an experienced player will hardly ever even need to refer to the quick reference sheet. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, NORTH STAR

A vast island chain, covered in the ruins of ancient civilizations, the Archipelago appears every few centuries, far out in the southern ocean.

A few, drawn by the blood of their ancestors, search for the fabled Crystal Pool, whose waters grant abilities far beyond those of normal men. It is only the bravest, however, who venture into the islands, for they are filled with numerous deadly threats. Cannibal tribes, sorcerous snake-men, and poisonous water-beasts all inhabit the island ruins, guarding their treasure hordes and setting traps for the unwary.

In this new wargame, set in the world of Frostgrave, players take on the role of Heritors, mighty warriors whose ancestors drank from the Crystal Pool. These Heritors lead their small, handpicked teams of spellcasters, rogues, and treasure hunters into the ever-shifting labyrinth of the Ghost Archipelago. Using the same rules system as Frostgrave, this standalone wargame focuses on heroes who draw on the power in their blood to perform nigh-impossible feats of strength and agility. This game also includes 30 spells drawn from five schools of magic, a host of soldier types, challenging scenarios, treasure tables, and a full bestiary of the most common creatures that inhabit the Lost Isles.

Containing a host of new scenarios, crewmen types, creatures, and treasure, this volume also includes guidelines for building unique tribes to use as adversaries in scenarios or as allies to the Heritors in their quest. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

China rose, fell, and rose again while the Samurai became the ruling elite in Japan.

1-217070 Sowers, Lee Thomas AMERICA'S OLDE WEST: 28mm Skirmish Actions & Gunfights -- 1836 to 1890 Time to saddle up, pardner, and hit the trail to action in the Olde West, from the Comanche Wars (1836) to Wounded Knee (1890). This skirmish rule set, an offshoot of the WWII Skirmish Action rules, certainly covers the traditional Wild West (post ACW to 1880s), but the Indian Wars ranged over a far wider period and so does America's Olde West.

Initiative is by faction (gang, squad, war party, posse, etc.), which usually numbers between four and 10, and each figure gets one action: Move, Shoot, Take Cover, and so on. Then each figure dices against its Quality number for a second action...BUT, certain factions receive a second action without needing a roll. For example, US infantry do not need an action to reload. That offers subtle differences between factions.

All the popular weapons, such as Winchester '73 and Colt Peacemaker, are included in the weapon charts. Firing is a quick six-sided attacker die versus six-sided defender die, with the difference determining the result.

Includes six pages of 'army' lists: cowboys, US cavalry, native Americans, gunfighters, outlaws, and factions, scenarios, and quick reference cards. Plays well on small kitchen tables. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 US, ON MILITARY MATTERS

1-217450 Sutherland, Jon MAD DOGS & ENGLISHMEN: Colonial Wargaming in Times When the Sun Never Set Large-scale skirmish rules for the Indian Mutiny that is easily adapted for other theaters and periods for skirmishes and battles between European and any native forces. The rules will even work if you want to pit a colonial German force against the French Foreign Legion, or for that matter, the British in South Africa against the Boers.

For the most part, the disparity in weapon technology offsets the fact that the Europeans are often heavily outnumbered, even though newer rifles meant superior range and firepower, in each theater these new weapons were not universal. In fact, the British and other colonial powers often relied on locally raised allies, or levies, to do most of the fighting for them. The British had a habit of issuing local troops with weapons that were one or two developments behind their European counterparts. In far flung theaters, the replacement of seemingly obsolete weapons took some time.

Movement is randomized by using dice and you lose movement dice for bad terrain. It is easier to move and control units if there is a commander present. Firing and combat is based on the number of figures, plus or minus relevant factors. Damage either kills a figure or inflicts terror on the unit. Morale tests are triggered by extreme situations, or the gradual buildup of terror.

The rules are designed to be capable of handling battles from 40-50 figures a side to several hundred. They have worked well on standard home-sized 10x6-foot or monstrous 45x6-foot tables and have been crash tested by over 100 wargamers from a dozen different countries. 1 vol, 56 pgs 2018 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-216260 Thomas, David Wayne edited by John Curry SMALL WARS: New Perspectives on Wargaming Counter Insurgency on the Tabletop The topic of counter Insurgency is under represented in table top hobby wargames. The relatively few sets of rules in this area have nearly all focused on the tactical level combat. All except one of these sets of rules are written to portray the operational / campaign level situation. Using card based systems, these games are particularly suitable for the solo wargamer. These games are not 'fair.' They each aim to give the wargamer a greater understanding of the particular conflicts they represent.

The games include:
* Boots on the Ground: Company Level Actions in the early 21st Century
* An Isolated Outpost: Six Months in the Sahara
* Eight Years in a Distant Country: Soviet involvement in Afghanistan
* Ovambo: Counter-insurgency in South West Africa

* Wargame: Corbach 1760. During the offensive in Germany, Broglie was with the main French forces in Frankenberg in Hesse, 30 km south of Corbach. He ordered Saint Germain to join him with the Army of the Rhine. Ferdinand, duke of Brunswick, stationed 10 km east of Corbach, sent the Erbprinz of Brunswick to prevent the junction of the two French armies. The Prinz, having made contact with Kielmansegg Corps, decided to attack what he though was only the vanguard of St. Germain. However Broglie himself with six brigades arrived on the battlefield while some German reinforcement force-marched to join the fight.

Corbach 1760 uses the same system as Hastenbeck 1757 (published in Vae Victis 126) with a slightly different scale: One combat point = 150 to 250 men; One hex = 200-250m, and One turn = 30 min. 1 vol, 84 pgs 2018 FRANCE, CERIGO EDITIONS

1-214570 Weigle, Bruce 1871: Franco-Prussian War Rules 1871 fast-play rules for the Franco-Prussian War-- the latest in Bruce Weigle's popular '1870' series of rules for the mid-19th century European wars of transition.

While 1871 features the same tried-and-true game mechanics as his earlier 1870-1859-1864-1866 rules, the fire combat, charge/melee, and morale sections have been radically streamlined - effectively halving the time it takes to play each turn. 1871 is completely compatible with the earlier rules, and includes ample designer's notes, color illustrations, examples of play, and twelve new historical battle scenarios (from both the Imperial and Republican phases of the war). However, it does not repeat the extensive historical or bibliographic information already found in 1870.

Each well-researched scenario includes complete orders of battle, historical notes, map, and alternative scenarios; they range in size from relatively modest battles of a couple of divisions to multi-corps debacles. Well-illustrated with contemporary artwork and terrain board pictures; a one page color quick reference sheet is included.

1-218230 Lambshead, John ONE-HOUR SKIRMISH WARGAMES: Fast-play Dice-less Rules for Small-unit Actions from Napoleonics to Sci-Fi Many wargamers enjoy the challenge of skirmish games where, instead of the strategy of vast armies portrayed by traditional wargames, the focus is on the tactics of a small unit. However, skirmish rules are often so complex that it can take hours of rolling dice, consulting tables and recording data to recreate what would in reality be a fast and furious firefight lasting just minutes.

Now these new rules make it possible to recapture the speed and intensity of these actions where every man, and every second, counts. The basic rules are supported by sections which give special rules and scenarios to capture the flavor of a range of different periods, from Napoleonic to Modern Warfare and beyond with Sci-Fi.

From the 95th Rifles scouting for Wellington, Western gunfights, and WWI trench raids, through WW2 parachute assaults or Special Forces strikes in Afghanistan, or even Space Marines storming a space station, Squad Firefights elegantly simple system allows you to focus on proper tactical decisions rather than rolling buckets of dice or calculating masses of modifiers. 1 vol, 120 pgs 2018 UK, PEN AND SWORD

1-218140 Viverito, Phil TANKS AND YANKS: Rules for WWI: 1917 to 1918 Tanks & Yanks is a rule system which focuses on the last two years of the Great War and offering an educational tool in understanding, in miniature, the tactics of the late war years. The booklet includes 104 pages of quotes, diagrams, and charts -- 14 pages of actual rules and the rest is period information from actual tactical manual diagrams, pictures, quotations, and vehicle data sheets. If nothing else, the book is a fine source for late WWI information on the armies of the Great War; includes a bibliography and on-line support.

The system can be used with either 15, 18, 25, or 28 mm figures. No special basing needed -- use individual stands or multiple-figure stands. Unit sizes are platoon level to battalion level with nine to 12 figures to a platoon, four platoons to a company, and three to four companies to a battalion. Model units for large battles use four or more tanks to a command. For smaller games, one or more tanks can be used. The rules have a very simple method of movement and casualty calculation for personnel and armor. Dice required are d6s and d10s.

1-215060 Kraus, Jurgen BAYERISCHE FAHNEN: Military Flags of Bavaria This richly-illustrated book about the military flags of Bavaria from the beginnings of the Ducal Army being in the 16th century to the end of the Royal Army in 1919. Includes 600 photos and illustrations.

The beginnings of the history of the flag are in the Landsknecht banners for the short-lived army contingents of the 16th century. Only the actual history of Bavarian field characters begins with the large army armor of the thirty years war (1618-48). That Bayern played a special role as a champion of the Catholic war party here, a great variety of religious symbols on the flags symbolically expressing.

Since the 17th century, the flag image was always marked by the blue and white colors of the House and the coat of arms of the Wittelsbach dynasty. To a change in the symbolism of the ruling elector entered with each change of Government. Because every change of ruler put the flags on his stamp, they always offered a vivid mirror image for the political transformation of this epoch.

The development of flags and standards in the context of the organization of the army is traced on the basis of traditional pieces of real and figurative representations, whose outlining certain Yes furnish with flags. Within the time periods, the field characters are separately dealt with after the arms, connected with references to their fates in campaigns or their whereabouts. Also the flag ribbons generously conferred in the 19th century and War Awards occupy a wide area.

Other sections discuss the importance of finally, which flags in the course of time as symbols in the army had their religious elevation flag orders, their role in the military life and its function as a tactical character in the fight. In this broad range the band about a pure history of field characters of the Bavarian army reaches far beyond: he gives an impressive image for three centuries Bavarian symbol and country history. 1 vol, 325 pgs 2017 AUSTRIA, VERLAG MILITARIA

1-215441 Absolon, Trevor SAMURAI ARMOUR: Volume I - The Japanese Cuirass For beauty, precision, and strength, nothing has ever matched the combination of form and function found in the armour of the samurai. For a samurai, the consummate warrior, his suit of armour was so much more than 'just' protective equipment that could save his life in the heat of battle - it was the embodiment of his personality, social status and very soul.

This volume, the first in a two-part series on the armour of the samurai, traces first the history of the samurai themselves and then examines the history and evolution of the cuirass or dou, the armour protecting the samurai's chest.

Drawing on over 20 years of research and technical work by Trevor Absolon, a leading expert, this is a complete study of this fundamental aspect of samurai armour construction. Illustrated throughout with photographs and diagrams, this is more than just a detailed technical exploration, it is a meditation on a process that was, and still is, nothing short of an art form. 1 vol, 372 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-215690 D'Amato, Raffaele DECORATED ROMAN ARMOUR: From the Ages of the Kings to the Death of Justinian the Great From the time of the Bronze Age, the warriors of all tribes and nations sought to emblazon their arms and armour with items and images to impress the enemy with the wealth and power of the wearer.

Magnificently decorated shields were as much a defensive necessity as a symbol of social status. Decorative symbols on shields and armour also defined the collective ideals and the self-conceived important of the village or city-state its warriors represented.

Such items were therefore of great significance to the wearers, and the authors of this astounding detailed and extensively research book, have brought together years of research and the latest archaeological discoveries, to produce a work of undeniable importance. This book is richly decorated throughout, and details battlefield, tournament, and parade armor from Rome's earliest days. 1 vol, 392 pgs 2017 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

1-2111317 Cristini, Luca Stefani with illustrations by Quinto Cenni I Soldati Italiani Con Napoleone 1796-1815 Italian soldiers with Napoleon 1796-1815. 80 color plates.

Immediately after the entry of Napoleon in Italy on 10 April 1796, the French troops occupied the territories that were under Austrian rule, namely the Duchy of Milan, the territories of the Duchy of Modena and Reggio, and part of the state of the church, namely Ferrara and Bologna.

With the support of Italian sympathizers of the revolution (locally called 'Jacobin') that sprang up in the peninsula between 1796 and 1799, a series of Republican states were created on the French model: Republic of Alba, Anconitana Republic, Republic Bergamo, Republic of Bologna, Republic of Brescia, Cremate Republic, Republic of Piedmont, Republic of Reggio Emilia, Republic of Italy, and the Republic of Liguria.

Many of these republics the following year joined the Cisalpine Republic with capital at Milan. The Italian flag was born in this area, for example, taking the French revolutionary tricolor, adopting the colors green, white, and red. The Republic eventually became the Kingdom of Italy, gravitating towards the Napoleonic sphere. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 ITALY, SOLDIER SHOP

The beautiful collection of figurines made for the collection of Dr. Viskuezzen consists of 60 subjects, from 1826 through the wars caused by the French intervention in support of the second Mexican Empire of Maximilian of Habsburg, until the years of the presidency of Porfirio Diaz. In 1861, the Mexican Republican Army consisted of ten regular line battalions, or about 12,000 men.

1-2111320 Cristini, Luca Stefani with illustrations by Quinto Cenni Soldati Dell'Esercito di San Marino XIX sec. The Army of the Republic of San Marino, 80 color plates

The first lists of Marino soldiers date back to 1204 but it is of 1406 a document which, with certainty, lists a significant number of men who were entrusted with tasks of defense and public order. In 1543, the San Marino Army was reformed for the first time, but it was only starting in the middle of the 1700 that the modern organization of the armed Forces of the Republic began. In the second half of the 19th century, it had a new reorganization of the Marino military bodies, while still holding the spirit of the traditions.

As it was permissible to expect, the style of the uniforms follows much of the Italian Army, although with some variations. An appendix offers notes on the Campaign of 1859, the various independent states and the troops of Garibaldi. 1 vol, 94 pgs 2018 ITALY, SOLDIER SHOP

Modest in numbers, the Belgian army of 1914 carried a decent individual armament, even if its concept was 20 years old. Well trained, the soldier could exploit to its maximum the long-range precision of his weapon. However, the small numbers of automatic weapons, recently purchased, would prove a serious handicap when vastly outnumbered by the enemy. Once again, the collections of the Royal Military Museum of Brussels reveal their wealth and diversity. Much more than a simple catalogue of weapons used by the Belgian Army, it is the story of the transformation of a small army caught in the struggles of the Great War, its adaptation to technological and tactical progress. 1 vol, 512 pgs 2017 AUSTRIA, VERLAG MILITARIA

1-968007 Konstam, Angus 007 SINK THE TIRPITZ: 1942-44 - The RAF and Fleet Air Arm Duel with Germany's Mighty Battleship When Germany invaded the Soviet Union in the summer of 1941, Stalin requested help from the Western Allies. The result was the Arctic Convoys - the opening of a sea route from Britain to Northern Russia, used to supply the Soviets with vitally-needed war materials. This route passed close to German-occupied Norway, and so in January 1942 the newly-completed battleship Tirpitz - sister of the Bismarck - was sent there, to form the core of the naval force stationed in Northern Norway to intercept these convoys.

For more than two years, Tirpitz remained a latent threat to the Allies, and despite fuel shortages her occasional sorties posed a grave threat to Allied shipping. So, the sinking of the battleship became a major priority for the British. The fjords where she lurked were strongly-defended, rendering naval attack virtually impossible. So, unless she could be caught at sea, she had to be destroyed by other means.

In the spring of 1942 the Royal Air Force launched three heavy bombing raids on the battleship's anchorage, but no hits were scored. The following autumn she was damaged during a midget submarine attack, and moved to a more secure anchorage. A lack of bombers caused a hiatus in these air attacks, but they were resumed in 1944, by which time the Fleet Air Arm had the resources to join in the air campaign. The most sustained of these naval air operations was Operation Goodwood, but like the others, its results were disappointing. It was now clear that only heavy bombers dropping especially heavy bombs could do the job.

So, that autumn the RAF launched the first of three large-scale attacks using Lancaster bombers armed with enormous Tallboy bombs. In the first, code-named Operation Parvane, the Tirpitz was badly damaged. In the third air attack, carried out in November 1944, the battleship was hit three times, and she capsized and sank, taking most of her crew down with her. Her passing broke German naval power in Arctic waters. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-968006 Michael, Marsall 006 OPERATION LINEBACKER II 1972: The B-52s are Sent to Hanoi After the failed April 1972 invasion of South Vietnam and the heavy US tactical bombing raids in the Hanoi area, the North Vietnamese agreed to return to the Paris peace talks, yet very quickly these negotiations stalled.

In an attempt to end the war quickly and 'persuade' the North Vietnamese to return to the negotiating table, President Nixon ordered the Air Force to send the US' ultimate conventional weapon, the B-52 bomber, against their capital, Hanoi. Bristling with the latest Soviet air defense missiles, it was the most heavily defended target in Vietnam. Taking place in late December, this campaign was soon dubbed the 'Christmas Bombings.'

Using specially commissioned artwork and maps, ex-USAF fighter colonel Marshall Michel describes Linebacker II, the climax of the air war over Vietnam, and history's only example of how America's best Cold War bombers performed against contemporary Soviet air defenses. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-968005 Zaloga, Steven 005 OPERATION CROSSBOW 1944: Hunting Hitler's V-weapons In mid-1943, Allied intelligence began to pick up the signs of unusual German construction in remote locations near the Channel Coast. Several massive fortifications were beginning to take shape, and they appeared to be oriented towards London. Allied intelligence code named these sites as Crossbow and began plans to attack them before they could bombard Britain's capital city. These Heavy Crossbow sites for the V-1 and V-2 missiles were supposed to be bomb-proof, but they soon attracted the attention of RAF heavy bombers with the new Tallboy concrete-penetrating bombs.

Fully illustrated with commissioned artwork and contemporary photographs, Operation Crossbow 1944 examines the dynamics of the world's first missile war and describes the parallel American efforts to develop missiles and assault drones to attack the Heavy Crossbow sites, including the Air Force's Aphrodite and Navy Anvil projects. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-972035 Campbell, David 035 ROMAN LEGIONARY vs CARTHAGINIAN WARRIOR: Second Punic War 217-206 BC The peace that followed the First Punic War was shallow and fractious, with the resumption of hostilities in 218 BC sparked by Carthaginian expansion in Iberia seeing Rome suffer some of the worst defeats in her entire history.

The Carthaginian army was a composite affair primarily made up of a number of levies from Africa and around the Mediterranean augmented by mercenaries and allies, and these troops crushed the Roman heavy infantry maniples in a series of battles across Southern Europe. Improvements made to their military, however, would see Roman revenge visited on Hannibal in full measure by Scipio, who would beat him at his own game and bring Roman legions to the gates of Carthage itself.

In this study, the epic battles at Lake Trasimene (217 BC), Cannae (216 BC), and Ilipa (206 BC) are explored in detail, supported by carefully chosen illustrations and specially commissioned full-color artwork and mapping. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-972034 Greentree, David 034 HITLERJUGEND SOLDIER vs CANADIAN SOLDIER: Normandy 1944 Canadian and Waffen-SS troops of 12. SS-Panzer-Division Hitlerjugend faced one another in a series of bloody battles following the D-Day landings of June 1944. The Canadian units fought in a number of distinguished regiments, while the Hitlerjugend Division were drawn from the ranks of the Hitler Youth organizations. Veteran officers and NCOs were joined by inexperienced teenagers, and clashed with the Canadians repeatedly, notably at Authie, Bretteville, and Hill 168. The struggle quickly took on an especially bitter nature, fueled by the massacre of Canadian prisoners by Hitlerjugend personnel.

Employing first-hand accounts and the latest research, as well as specially commissioned artwork and carefully selected archive photographs, this absorbing study investigates the origins, ethos, training, fighting techniques, and weapons of both sides during the epic struggle for Normandy. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-972037 Lai, Benjamin 037 CHINESE SOLDIER versus Japanese Soldiers: China 1937-38 In July 1937, the Marco Polo Bridge Incident sparked a bloody conflict between Chinese and Japanese forces that would rage across China and beyond for more than eight years.

The two sides' forces brought very different strengths and limitations to the conflict. In 1937 China was divided into factions, each controlled by warlords with independent forces, and there was no unified Chinese army. In order to fight the Japanese, Chiang Kai-shek, the nominal leader of Nationalist China, was compelled to do deals with these regional powers. For their part, the Japanese employed ground forces broadly comparable to those fielded by Western powers, including modern artillery and tanks.

Featuring specially commissioned artwork and drawing upon an array of sources, this study investigates the origins, training, doctrine and armament of the Chinese and Japanese forces who fought in the opening stages of the Second Sino-Japanese War. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-972036 Windrow, Marton 036 FRENCH FOREIGN LEGIONNAIRE vs VIET MINH INSURGENT: North Vietnam 1948-52 The French Indochina War (1946-54) was the largest of the first generation of post-World War II wars of decolonization as Vietminh insurgents sought to topple their French colonial masters. It was also unique in that the insurgency evolved from low-level guerrilla activity to mobile operations by a large conventional army which finally defeated a large European-led expeditionary force, supported by artillery, armour and airpower.

The war's progress was almost entirely dictated by the extreme terrain, and by the Chinese support enjoyed by the Vietnamese insurgents. The actions explored in this study cover three contrasting phases of the war in Tonkin during 1948-52, setting both sides on the path that would lead to the conflict's climactic encounter at Dien Bien Phu in 1954.

Featuring specially commissioned artwork and drawing upon a range of sources, this study casts new light on the troops who fought on both sides in this evolving and momentous conflict. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975054 Bishop, M.C. 054 THE SUOMI SUBMACHINE GUN Entering service in 1931, the 9x19mm Suomi KP/-31 submachine gun saw extensive combat with Finnish troops during their fight against Soviet forces in 1939-44. It was also manufactured under licence in Switzerland, Denmark and Sweden, and remained in Finnish service until the 1980s, an indication of its durability.

Rugged and accurate, the Suomi was a favourite with Finnish ski troops who would strike from ambush, cutting down Soviet troops, then skiing away into the woods. Initially used by the Finns as a light machine gun at infantry squad level, it eventually became a dedicated submachine gun, and since it had been designed to be more accurate than the typical SMG, it was often even used as a sniping weapon, or to supplement longer-ranged rifles such as the Mosin-Nagant. Featuring first-hand accounts and specially commissioned colour artwork, this is the story of one of World War II's most distinctive and respected infantry weapons.

1-975055 Bishop, M.C. 055 THE PILUM: The Roman Heavy Javelin A heavy javelin, normally used as a shock weapon immediately before contact, the pilum was designed with a particular specialty: it could penetrate a shield and carry on into the individual behind it. Relying on mass rather than velocity, at short range a volley of pila had much the same effect on a charging enemy as musketry would in later periods. The design was not uniform, with a wide diversity of types throughout the developmental history of the weapon, but for more than four centuries it remained a vital part of the arsenal of weapons at the disposal of the Roman legionary.

Drawing upon recent major finds in the Iberian Peninsula and the Balkans, as well as written records and rigorous scientific analysis, this enthralling study lifts the veil on the evolving nature of the pilum, the Roman heavy javelin that helped to conquer the known world. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975062 Langellier, John 062 THE TRAPDOOR SPRINGFIELD: From the Little Bighorn to San Juan Hill Intended to replace the proliferation of different small arms fielded by US forces during the American Civil War, the 'Trapdoor Springfield' was designed in 1865-66 by Erskine S. Allin. Using metallic cartridges, it could be loaded in a single action, increasing the number of shots per minute as much as fivefold. The new weapon quickly proved its worth in two separate incidents in August 1867: small groups of US soldiers and civilians armed with the trapdoor repulsed numerically superior Native American contingents. A simple and cost-effective weapon, it was used, along with its variants in every US conflict in the three decades after the Civil War, especially on the American frontier.

Drawing upon first-hand accounts from US soldiers, their Native American opponents, and users such as buffalo hunters, this is the story of the Trapdoor Springfield, one of the defining weapons of the Indian Wars. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975059 Larsen, Alan 059 THE CAVALRY LANCE The development of cavalry firearms and the widespread disappearance of armor from the European battlefield saw a decline in the use of the cavalry lance in early modern warfare. However, by 1800 the lance, much changed from its medieval predecessors in both form and function, was back.

During the next century the use of the lance spread to the armed forces of almost every Western country, seeing action in every major conflict from the Napoleonic Wars to World War I including the Crimean and Franco-Prussian wars and across the Atlantic in the American Civil War. The lance even reached the colonial conflicts of the Anglo-Sikh and Boer wars. It was not until the disappearance of the mounted warrior from the battlefield that the lance was consigned to history.

Featuring specially commissioned artwork and drawing upon a variety of sources, this is the engaging story of the cavalry lance at war during the 19th and 20th centuries, from Waterloo to the Somme. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975061 Loades, Mike 061 THE CROSSBOW Technologically sophisticated and powerful, the crossbow has long enjoyed a popular reputation for villainous superiority because it could be used with little training as a weapon of assassination. The study of bow designs, trigger mechanisms and spanning devices reveals a tale of considerable mechanical ingenuity; advances that produced a battlefield weapon requiring comparatively little training to use. It was an extremely useful weapon, and especially effective in siege warfare for both attack and defense.

Known to the Ancient Greeks and the Chinese as early as the 5th century BC, the crossbow developed both in Western Europe and in the Far East. Advances in trigger mechanisms, spanning and bow design allowed the development of ever more powerful bows. In this study acknowledged weaponry expert Mike Loades traces the origins, development, combat record and lasting legacy of the crossbow, the formidable projectile weapon that played a key role in a host of battles and sieges across Europe and Asia. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975063 McNab, Chris 063 THE FN MAG MACHINE GUN: M240, L7, and Other Variants For six decades, the 7.62mm FN MAG has been a dominant general-purpose machine gun (GPMG) in worldwide arsenals. Three qualities have guaranteed this enduring status - reliability, ease of operation, and firepower. Several nations have license-produced the weapon as their standard GPMG, including the British (as the L7) and the Americans (M240), and in total more than 80 nations have adopted the FN MAG. The machine gun has also been modified extensively for vehicular, naval, and aircraft platforms, demonstrating versatility in the air, on sea, and on land.

In this book, Chris McNab charts the technical evolution of this extraordinary weapon, created by Belgian company Fabrique Nationale d'Herstal. From the jungles of South East Asia, to the deserts of the Middle East, and the icy battlefields of the Falklands, this study explores the origins, development, combat use, and legacy of the FN MAG machine gun, a dominant weapon in its field for more than a half-century.

1-975056 Pegler, Martin 056 SHARPSHOOTING RIFLES OF THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR: Colt, Sharps, Spencer, and Whitworth At the outset of the American Civil War, the Union Army's sharpshooters were initially equipped with the M1855 Colt revolving rifle, but it was prone to malfunction. Instead, the North's sharpshooters preferred the Sharps rifle, an innovative breech-loading weapon capable of firing up to ten shots per minute - more than three times the rate of fire offered by the standard-issue Springfield .58-caliber rifled musket. Other Union sharpshooters were equipped with the standard-issue Springfield rifled musket or the .56-caliber Spencer Repeating Rifle.

Conversely, the Confederacy favored the Pattern 1853 Enfield rifled musket for its sharpshooters and also imported from Britain the Whitworth Rifle, a .45-caliber, single-shot, muzzle-loading weapon distinguished by its use of a twisted hexagonal barrel. Featuring specially commissioned artwork, this is the engrossing story of the innovative rifles that saw combat in the hands of sharpshooters on both sides during the Civil War. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975057 Rottmann, Gordon 057 US GRENADE LAUNCHERS: M79, M203, and M320 In an effort to provide the US infantryman with more firepower to cover the range gap between the hand grenade and the light mortar, the 40mm M79 grenade launcher -- a shoulder-fired, single-shot weapon -- entered service with US forces in 1961.

Reliable, easy to use, and lethally effective, the M79 soon became an iconic symbol of the Vietnam War and had a profound influence on small-unit tactics. As the Vietnam conflict continued, it was joined on the front line by experimental models such as the magazine-fed T148E1, as well as two launchers intended to be fitted under the barrel of the new M16 assault rifle: Colt's XM148 and AAI Corporation's M203.

The M203 remains in US Army service today, while the US Marine Corps now also fields the M32 multiple grenade launcher - like the M79, a standalone weapon. Featuring full-color artwork, this is the story of the rugged and formidable grenade launchers that equipped the United States and its allies in Vietnam and beyond from the 1960s to the present day. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975060 Zaloga, Steven 060 THE ANTI-TANK RIFLE The emergence of the tank in World War I led to the development of the first infantry weapons to defend against tanks. Anti-tank rifles became commonplace in the inter-war years and in the early campaigns of World War II in Poland and the Battle of France, which saw renewed use in the form of the British .55-inch Boys anti-tank rifle -- also used by the US Marine Corps in the Pacific. The French campaign made it clear that the day of the anti-tank rifle was ending due to the increasing thickness of tank armor.

Nevertheless, anti-tank rifles continued to be used by the Soviets on the Eastern Front with two rifles, the 14.5mm PTRS and PTRD, and were still in widespread use in 1945. They served again with Korean and Chinese forces in the Korean War, and some have even appeared in Ukraine in 2014-15.

Vemork produced heavy water, an essential part of making plutonium for nuclear weapons. When the Germans overran Norway the entire stock had been smuggled out of the country, but the plant was intact and soon producing heavy water again, destined for the German nuclear program.

Despite the difficulties of getting to and operating in such a remote, hostile area, SOE decided it had to destroy the plant.

Its powerful electronic countermeasures equipment (ECM) was thought to make the B-52 immune to ground-to-air missile attack, but in Vietnam, and later conflicts such as Operation Desert Storm in 1991, it came up against the Soviet-designed SA-2 SAM which used heavy salvoes of missiles to bring down the bombers.

The losses of several of its most feared, powerful, and supposedly invincible bombers per night to a torrent of Soviet missiles during the closing stages of the Vietnam War was sobering to Americans, but the B-52s' crushing attacks virtually eliminated North Vietnam's defenses and forced a peace settlement. This fascinating book analyses the roles of the SA-2 operators and the B-52 Electronic Warfare Officers (EWOs) using specially commissioned artwork as well as first-hand accounts, and traces the cat-and-mouse tactics that each side employed. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Defending the Royal Navy task force were two small squadrons totaling 20 Sea Harriers (SHARs).

Initial clashes between SHARs and Argentine Mirages and Daggers on 1 May 1982 failed to eliminate the Sea Harrier defenders.

What the Japanese did have though was the Ki-44 Tojo. Armed with two 40 mm cannon, it was the most heavily armed and feared single-seat fighter to see action against the new American bomber, the B-29 Superfortress. For the bomber crews, they had what they believed was their 'ace in hole': a fully armed B-29 carried four remotely operated gun turrets and a tail gunner's position, making it the world's most advanced self-defending bomber.

In every respect the Ki-44 pilots were fighting a desperate battle. Many who made their mark did so using suicidal ramming attacks or 'taiatari.' Illustrated with full-color artwork, this volume examines why the Ki-44 was unable to break up bomber formations conventionally during the Pacific War, and how its ramming tactics, while terrifying, graphically revealed Japan's inability to stop the B-29. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978088 Greentree, David 088 BRITISH DESTROYER versus GERMAN DESTROYER: Narvik 1940 The opening months of World War II saw Britain's Royal Navy facing a resurgent German navy, the Kriegsmarine. Following the German invasion of Denmark and Norway in early April 1940, British and German destroyers would clash in a series of battles for control of the Norwegian coast. The operational environment was especially challenging, with destroyer crews having to contend with variable weather, narrow coastal tracts, and possibility of fog and ship breakdowns.

In two engagements at Narvik, the Royal Navy entered the harbor and attacked the loitering German destroyers who had dropped off mountain troops to support the German invasion. The raids were devastating, halving at a stroke the number of ships at Hitler's disposal.

Employing specially commissioned artwork and drawing upon a range of sources, this absorbing study traces the evolving technology and tactics employed by the British and German destroyer forces, and assesses the impact of the Narvik clashes on both sides' subsequent development and deployment of destroyers in a range of roles across the world's oceans. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978085 Guttman, Jon 085 ZEPPELIN vs BRITISH HOME DEFENCE: 1915-18 When Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin's rigid airship LZ 1 flew over Lake Constance in 1900, it was the most advanced and impressive flying machine in the world: a colossal, lighter-than-air craft capable of controlled flight. In World War I, Zeppelins were first used in a reconnaissance role, but on 19 January 1915 Kaiser Wilhelm II authorized their use in bombing strategic targets in England.

From then on, 'Zeppelin' became synonymous with terror to the British, and indeed the airship's effectiveness was more psychological than material. Still, their raids compelled the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service to embark on a program of modernizing their aerial defenses, accelerating a process that would ultimately make the aeroplane, rather than the airship, the paramount flying machine of the war. Using specially commissioned artwork, contemporary photographs and first-hand accounts, this book tells the fascinating story of Britain's first Blitz, from the airships who terrorized the public to the men who sought to defend the skies. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Offering a good balance of speed, protection and firepower, the British Cromwell tank was much faster than its German opponent, but the Jagdpanzer IV tank destroyer had a high-velocity main gun and a lower profile that made it formidable on the defensive, especially in ambush situations.

The two types would fight in a series of bloody encounters, from the initial days of the struggle for Normandy through to its climax as the Allies sought to trap their opponents in the Falaise Pocket.

1-978087 Higgins, David 087 P-39/P-400 AIRACOBRA vs A6M2/3 ZERO-SEN: New Guinea 1942 After the huge advances made in the early months of the Pacific war, it was in remote New Guinea where the advance of Imperial Japanese Naval Air Force (IJNAF) A6M Zero-sen fighters was first halted due to a series of offensive and defensive aerial battles ranging from treetop height up to 30,000 ft.

Initially, the IJNAF fought Australian Kittyhawks, but by May 1942 they tangled with USAAF P-39 and P-400 Airacobras. The battles unfolded over mountainous terrain with treacherous tropical weather. Neither IJNAF or USAAF pilots had been trained for such extreme conditions, incurring many additional losses aside from those that fell in combat. Using specially commissioned artwork and contemporary photographs and testimony, this explains how, despite their initial deficit in experience and equipment, the Airacobras managed to square the ledger and defend New Guinea. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978067 Holmes, Tony 067 SPITFIRE II/V vs Bf 109F: Channel Front 1940-42 With stunning artwork and detailed analysis, this volume provides a pilot's view of the dramatic clashes between these two legendary fighters, as some of the most gifted and 'big name' aces of World War II went head to head in the skies of NorthWest Europe.

As the Battle of Britain approached its conclusion, two new versions of the famous Spitfire and Messerschmitt Bf 109 arrived on the scene. The RAF could see that the Luftwaffe were stepping down their incursions into British airspace, and went on to the offensive. The Spitfire Mark II, and increasingly the Mark V, would fly over the picturesque English channel in fighter sweeps, or to escort vulnerable Blenheim bombers - waiting for them was the Bf 109F 'Friedrich'. Yet despite the reversal of offensive and defensive dispositions, and despite the Luftwaffe deploying the bulk of their fighter. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978079 Lardas, Mark 079 USS LAWRENCE vs HMS DETROIT: The War of 1812 on the Great Lakes The most critical naval fighting during the War of 1812 took place, not on the high seas, but on the inland lakes of North America: the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain. Carrying between 12 and 22 cannon, the British and American sloops-of-war were ship-rigged, brig-rigged or schooner-rigged vessels. Lakes actions often involved two ships facing each other broadside to broadside, the best example of which was the battle of Lake Erie in 1813 where HMS Detroit led a Royal Navy squadron against the USS Lawrence-led US Navy.

Featuring full-color artwork, this lively study investigates the prolonged struggle between British and US sloops-of-war, highlighting the differences between the war on the lakes and the war on the oceans during the Age of Fighting Sail. It reveals the circumstances under which these ships were built, how they were armed, and the human story behind their construction and use in battle. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978084 McNab, Chris 084 SAGGER ANTI-TANK MISSILE vs M60 MAIN BATTLE TANK: Yom Kippur War 1973 The 1973 Yom Kippur War rewrote the textbook on the tactics of modern armored warfare. Unlike the previous major Arab-Israeli war of 1967, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) faced an enemy that had invested heavily in modern Soviet weapon systems and tactics.

Using detailed color artwork and insightful analysis, this book explains how the effective use of the Soviet-supplied AT-3 Sagger (9M14 Malyutka) anti-tank missile allowed small Arab tank-killing teams to destroy Israeli armor at an astonishing rate. It also analyzes the tank that opposed it, the US-built M60A1, which had to fight for survival against the Arab Saggers, and shows how in both the Sinai and the Golan Heights, the IDF quickly learned that firepower and infantry/artillery cooperation were the keys to their survival. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978090 Stille, Mark 090 USN FLEET DESTROYER vs IJN FLEET SUBMARINE: The Pacific 1941-42 Leading up to the Pacific War, Japanese naval strategists believed that a decisive fleet engagement would be fought against the US Navy. Outnumbered by the USN, the Imperial Japanese Navy planned to use its large, ocean-going submarines to chip away at its opponent before the grand battle. In order to accomplish this, the IJN's submarine force was tasked to perform extended reconnaissance of the USN's battle fleet, even in port, and then shadow and attack it.

For their part, the USN was fully aware of the potential threat posed by Japanese submarines, and destroyer crews were trained and equipped with modern anti-submarine weapons and tactics to screen the battle fleet. Challenging the assumption that Japanese submarines were ineffective during the Pacific War, this fully illustrated study examines their encounters with the US Navy, and the successes and failures of American destroyers in protecting their capital ships. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978083 Stille. Mark 083 USN BATTLESHIP vs IJN BATTLESHIP: The Pacific 1942-44 The United States and Japan believed their battleships would play a central role in battle, but after the Pacific War began in December 1941, the role of the battleship proved to be much more limited than either side expected. There would be only two battleship vs battleship actions in the Pacific in World War II, both of which are assessed in this engaging study. At Guadalcanal in 1942, Kirishima faced two modern US battleships, USS Washington and USS South Dakota. In the Surigao Strait in 1944, two World War I-era Japanese battleships, Yamashiro and Fuso, faced six American battleships supported by four heavy cruisers in history's last-ever clash between battleships.

Employing full-color artwork, carefully selected archive photographs, and expert analysis, this examines the two head-to-head clashes between the battleships deployed by the United States and Japan in the struggle for control of the Pacific during World War II. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978078 Zaloga, Steve 078 PANZER 38(t) vs BT-7: Barbarossa 1941 The tank battles in the Soviet Union during the summer of 1941 were the largest in World War II, exceeding even the more famous Prokhorovka encounter during the Kursk campaign. Indeed, they were the largest tank battles ever fought.

This book examines two evenly matched competitors in this conflict, the German Panzer 38(t) and the Soviet BT-7. Both were of similar size, armed with guns of comparable firepower, and had foreign roots - the Panzer 38(t) was a Czechoslovak design and the BT-7 was an evolution of the American Christie tank.

1-978080 Zaloga, Steven 080 PERSHING vs TIGER: Germany 1945 During the final battles on World War II's Western Front, the legendary German Tiger I heavy tank clashed with the brand-new M26 Pershing fielded by the United States. The Tiger I had earned a formidable reputation by the end of 1944, although its non-sloped armor and poor mobility meant it was being superseded by the Tiger II or 'King Tiger'. While the Tiger I had been in the front lines since 1942, the US Pershing first entered combat in late February 1945, and more than 20 Pershings would see action before war's end.

This book examines the dramatic Tiger/Pershing duel at Elsdorf in Germany, and also assesses the clashes between German armour and the sole 'Super Pershing' deployed to Europe. Featuring full-colour artwork, carefully chosen photographs and specially commissioned maps, this is the story of the first US heavy tanks in combat with the fearsome Tiger I during the last months of World War II in Europe. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-984112 McGovern Terrance 112 DEFENSES OF BERMUDA: 1612-1995 Due to its location in the western North Atlantic some 600 miles off the Carolinas and halfway between Halifax in Canada and Jamaica in the West Indies, the island of Bermuda was a key naval haven for the Royal Navy over the centuries. It was vital for the Navy first in the development of its American colonies, then during its rivalry with the United States, and finally as allies with the United States.

The need to defend its 64 miles of coastline and ports has resulted in the construction of about 50 forts from 1617 to 1945 even though its total land mass is only 20.6 square miles. This led to an incredible concentration of fortifications with 2.5 forts for every square mile.

Today, the legacy of these defense efforts remain either as disused structures or parks scattered throughout Bermuda, many of them now popular tourist attractions. Using stunning commissioned artwork and meticulous research, this is the fascinating story of Britain's 'Gibraltar of the West.' 1 vol, 64 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-992119 Chambers, Mark 119 NAKAJIMA B5N 'Kate' and B6N 'Jill' Units Entering service during the Sino-Japanese War, the Nakajima B5N (code-named 'Kate') excelled and went on to achieve surprising and dramatic successes in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It also contributed to the sinking of the US aircraft carriers USS Lexington at the Battle of the Coral Sea, USS Yorktown at the Battle of Midway, and USS Hornet at the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands.

Its replacement, the Nakajima B6N 'Jill', while a marked improvement over its illustrious predecessor, was never able to achieve its full potential in combat due to advances in Allied aircraft, finding itself relegated to the dreaded Kamikaze strikes in the latter part of the war.
Using previously unpublished photographs as well as color illustrations, this book will cover the history of the 'Kate' and 'Jill' torpedo/attack bombers, including their design and development, as well as the combat highs and lows of the Imperial Japanese Navy's premier torpedo-bombers. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-992125 Davies, Peter 125 US NAVY F-4 PHANTOM II UNITS OF THE VIETNAM WAR: 1969-73 Although the F-4 Phantom II was the most important fighter-bomber to see action with all three American services during the Vietnam War, it was essentially a US Navy design, and the carrier-borne squadron crews were its main operators in combat.

The aircraft pioneered the use of long-range, radar-guided missiles in combat, although the majority of its Vietnam missions involved ground-attack with a variety of innovative ordnance.

From 1968 to 1973 the Phantom II was the standard US Navy fighter in Southeast Asia, having replaced several other types. Its performance and versatility enabled it to perform a variety of different missions, and switch roles as necessary, in the assault on some of the world's most heavily defended territory. Including detailed color profiles and first-person commentary from active participants in the F-4's naval combat history, this is a detailed study of the US armed services' most famous post-war fighter. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-992124 Falconer, Jonathan 124 SHORT STIRLING UNITS OF WORLD WAR 2 Of the RAF's trio of four-engined heavy bombers in WWII, the mighty Short Stirling was the first to enter service in August 1940. From its first raid in February 1941, the Stirling was at the forefront of the British night bombing offensive against Germany before unacceptably high losses forced its relegation to second-line duties later in the war.

In its modified form as the Mark IV, the Stirling fulfilled vital roles with the RAF as a paratroop transport and glider tug on D-Day, Arnhem, and on the Rhine crossing as well as flying countless Special Duties operations over Occupied Europe and Norway. Its last gasp was in 1948-49 when a handful of Mk Vs were acquired by the Royal Egyptian Air Force to bomb Israel in the First Arab-Israeli War.

1-992120 Forsyth, Robert 120 JU 52/3m BOMBER AND TRANSPORT UNITS 1936-41 The all-metal Junkers JU-52/3m enjoyed a solid - indeed, revered - reputation amongst its crews and the troops and paratroopers who used and depended on it. For more than 10 years, it saw service as a successful military transport. Its distinctive, three-engined design and corrugated metal construction was instantly recognizable. It was a mainstay in the Luftwaffe's inventory, first seeing service in the 1930s in bombing and transport operations in the Spanish Civil War, and subsequently during the German invasion of Poland. It then served on every front on which the Luftwaffe was deployed until May 1945.

The Junkers served as a stalwart transport, confronting both freezing temperatures and ice, and heat and dust, lifting men, animals, food and supplies vital for German military operations. This, the first of two books on the JU-52/3m, details its service as a bomber in Spain and in South America, followed by its pivotal role in early war operations during the invasions of Poland and France, the airborne invasion of Crete and the early stages of Operation Barbarossa. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-992123 Forsyth, Robert 123 HEINKEL HE 177 UNITS OF WORLD WAR 2 In many ways, the Heinkel He 177 'Greif' (Griffon) was Nazi Germany's 'lost' strategic bomber. With some fundamental creases ironed out, and built in large numbers, the He 177 would have offered the Luftwaffe the means with which to carry out long-range, mass bombing attacks against targets of a strategic nature.

Although competing interests and personalities served to prevent this from happening, from mid-1943 the aircraft nevertheless saw service over England, the Atlantic, the Mediterranean and in Russia. The He 177 flew to the end of the war, with some machines undertaking extremely hazardous low-level missions against Soviet armour in Poland in late 1944-45.

Filled with detailed artwork and contemporary photographs, this tells the story of this aircraft, including the political infighting at the top of the Luftwaffe's hierarchy that stymied its development, its radical technical design and its state-of-the-art weaponry. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-992122 Mattiolli, Marco 122 SAVOIA-MARCHETTA S.79 SPARVIERO BOMBER UNITS Initially developed by Savoia-Marchetti as a transport, the aircraft had evolved into a dedicated medium bomber by the time the S.79-I made its combat debut in the Spanish Civil War in 1936.

During WWII, it became Italy's most successful bomber, and the most produced, with around 1370 built between 1936 and early 1944. Although initially hampered by poor tactics, the S.79 bomber crews nonetheless scored sunk a number of Allied vessels, and provided a constant threat to Allied sailors in the Mediterranean in the early stages of the war. In East Africa and the Red Sea the Sparvieri were the most modern bombers in-theater, proving a challenge to RAF and SAAF biplane fighters.

1-993136 Chapis, Stephen 136 ALLIED JET KILLERS OF WORLD WAR 2 Allied fighter pilots began encountering German jets - principally the outstanding Me 262 fighter - from the autumn of 1944. Stunned by the aircraft's speed and rate of climb, it took USAAF and RAF units time to work out how to combat this deadly threat as the Luftwaffe targeted the medium and heavy bombers attacking targets across the Reich.

A number of high-scoring aces from the Eighth Air Force (Drew, Glover, Meyer, Norley, and Yeager, to name but a few) succeeded in claiming Me 262s, Me 163, and Ar 234s during the final months of the campaign, as did RAF aces like Tony Gaze and 'Foob' Fairbanks. The exploits of both famous and little-known pilots will be chronicled in this volume, detailing how they pushed their P-47s, P-51s, Spitfires, and Tempests to the limits of their performance in order to down the Luftwaffe's 'wonder weapons.' 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

The greatest task for JG 1 though came after 1942 in its defense of the Reich against the US Eighth Air Force's B-17s and B-24s, bearing the brunt of defense against increasingly regular, larger and deep penetrating USAAF daylight bomber raids with fighter escort. Levels of attrition subsequently grew, but so did experience among the leading aces, who were often the subject of propaganda films and literature.

Many of Germany's most famous World War 2 aces flew with JG 1 including Herbert Ihlefeld (132 victories), Heinz Bar (220) and Walter Oesau (127), piloting Bf 109Es, Fw 190s and the Heinkel 162 jet fighter.

1-993135 Toperczer, Istvan 135 MiG-21 ACES OF THE VIETNAM WAR Having learned their trade on the subsonic MiG-17, pilots of the Vietnamese People's Air Force (VPAF) received their first examples of the legendary MiG-21 supersonic fighter in 1966. Soon thrown into combat over North Vietnam, the guided-missile equipped MiG-21 proved a deadly opponent for the US Air Force, US Navy and US Marine Corps crews striking at targets deep in communist territory.

Although the communist pilots initially struggled to come to terms with the fighter's air-search radar and weapons systems, the ceaseless cycle of combat operations quickly honed their skills. Indeed, by the time the last US aircraft (a B-52) was claimed by the VPAF on 28 December 1972, no fewer than 13 pilots had become aces flying the MiG-21.

Fully illustrated with wartime photographs and detailed color artwork plates, and including enthralling combat reports, this book examines the many variants of the MiG-21 that fought in the conflict, the schemes they wore, and the pilots that flew them. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995261 Cappellano, Filippo 261 ITALIAN ARMOURED & RECONNAISSANCE CARS 1911-45 The first Italian armored cars were used in the war in Libya in 1911-12 against the Ottoman Empire. With few tanks being developed, the Italians relied instead on the development of more mobile armored cars like the Ansaldo Lancia 1 Z, during World War I, but post-war the army, focusing on the Alpine battlegrounds of Italy's northern borders, did not consider armored cars suitable for reconnaissance duties.

The experience of the Spanish Civil War would provide the much needed last push for the Italians to develop modern armored cars. The result were the famous AB 41-43 models, which fought against the British in North Africa and Marshall Tito's forces in Yugoslavia, along with other vehicles such as the AS 36 light armored car.

Using detailed color plates and contemporary photographs, this book examines the development of the Italian armored car in the two world wars and the inter-war years, from the deserts of North Africa to the slopes of the Alps. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995244 D'Amato, Raffaele 244 IMPERIAL ROMAN WARSHIPS 193-565 AD The period of relative peace enjoyed by the Roman Empire in its first two centuries ended with the Marcomannic Wars. The following centuries saw near-constant warfare, which brought new challenges for the Roman Navy -- not only patrolling the Mediterranean but also fighting against invaders with real naval skill such as Genseric and his Vandals.

With research from newly discovered shipwrecks and archaeological finds as well as the rich contemporary source material, this study examines the equipment and tactics used by the navy and the battles they fought in this tumultuous period, which includes the fall of Rome and the resurgence of the Eastern Empire under Justinian the Great.

1-995263 de Groot, Bouko 263 DUTCH NAVIES OF THE 80 YEARS' WAR: 1568-1648 The tiny new state of the United Provinces of the Netherlands won its independence from the mighty Spanish empire by fighting and winning the Eighty Years' War, from 1568 and 1648. In this long conflict, warfare on water played a much bigger role in determining the ultimate victor.

The fleet helped carve out a new empire, growing national income to such levels that it could continue the costly war for independence. Yet it was in coastal and inland waters that the most decisive battles were fought. Arguably the most decisive Spanish siege (Leiden, 1574) was broken by a fleet sailing to the rescue across flooded polders, and the battle of Nieuwpoort in 1600, the largest successful invasion fleet before World War II, was one of the most decisive battle in western history.

Using detailed full color artwork, this book shows how the Dutch navies fought worldwide in their war of independence, from Brazil to Indonesia, and from the Low Countries to Angola. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995250 Donnell, Clayton 250 MAGINOT LINE GUN TURRETS: And French Gun Turret Development 1880-1940 The Maginot Line was one of the most advanced networks of fortifications in history. Built in the aftermath of World War I, and stretching along the French eastern border from Belgium to Switzerland, it was designed to prevent German troops from ever setting foot on French soil again.

Its primary defensive weapons were the gun turrets. Beginning development in the 1870s and improving on German designs, they were constructed out of steel wedges and could revolve and disappear from sight after firing, making them impervious to enemy bombardment. They were deadly accurate and created havoc on the German units that attacked the line during their invasion of France in 1940.

This fully illustrated study will examine the technical details of the French artillery turrets. It will show the evolution of the design of the guns and turrets used in the French forts before and during World War I, then those built exclusively for the Maginot Line to give a comprehensive overview of the weapons designed to protect France from invasion. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995260 Hampshire, Edward 260 SOVIET CRUISE MISSILE SUBMARINES OF THE COLD WAR The Soviet Union's cruise missile submarines from the modified Whiskey, to the Oscar II classes were among the most formidable vessels of the Cold War. They were initially designed to carry land attack nuclear-tipped cruise missiles designed to strike targets on the eastern coast of the United States.

By the late 1960s, however, submarine-launched ballistic missiles made the nuclear land-attack mission unnecessary, so existing classes were converted to the 'carrier killer' role, armed with anti-ship cruise missiles designed to destroy US super-carriers and other important naval targets.

This fully illustrated study examines these powerful machines that were some of the largest and fastest submarines ever built. If war had broken out, they would have been at the forefront of the Soviet Navy's campaign to destroy NATO's sea power and cut America's sea link with Europe. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995243 Harmse, Kyle and Dunstan, Simon 243 SOUTH AFRICAN ARMOUR OF THE BORDER WAR 1975-89 The Border War saw the biggest armored battles in Africa since World War II. Starting as a counter-insurgency operation by the South African Defense Force (SADF) against the South West Africa People's Organization, South Africa became embroiled in the complex Angolan Civil War, where they came up against enemies well supplied with equipment and armored vehicles from the Soviet Union.

With the aid of illustrations and photographs, this study details the characteristics, capabilities and performance of the wide variety of armored vehicles deployed by the SADF, from the Eland armored car to the Ratel infantry combat vehicle and the Olifant tank. Designed for the unique conditions of the region, South Africa's armour was distinctive and innovative, and has influenced the design of counterinsurgency armored vehicles around the world. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995256 HIll, Alexander 256 SOVIET DESTROYERS OF WORLD WAR II The Soviet Navy that faced the German onslaught in 1941 boasted a mixture of modern warships, often built with foreign technical assistance, and antiquated warships from the Tsarist era that were modernised for the conflict.

Some Soviet naval vessels saw limited involvement in the war against Finland in 1939-1940, but the main action occurred after the German invasion, when these destroyers escorted convoys, fought battles against other destroyers and the deadly threat posed by attacking aircraft, and provided fire support for Soviet troops. Covers from the Gnevny class of the pre-war period to the specialist destroyer leaders of the Leningrad class and the unique Tashkent. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995246 Konstam, Angus 246 BRITISH DESTROYERS 1939-45 (1): Pre-War Classes The Royal Navy entered World War II with a large but eclectic fleet of destroyers. Some of these were veterans of World War I, fit only for escort duties. Most though, had been built during the inter-war period, and were regarded as both reliable and versatile. Danger though lurked across the seas as new destroyers being built in Germany, Italy, and Japan were larger and better armored.

Until the new, larger Tribal-class destroyers could enter service, these vessels would have to hold the line. Used mainly to hunt submarines, protect convoys from aerial attack, and take out other destroyers, these ships served across the globe during the war.

This fully illustrated study is the first in a two-part series on the real workhorses of the wartime Royal Navy, focusing on how these aging ships took on the formidable navies of the Axis powers. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995253 Konstam, Angus 253 BRITISH DESTROYERS 1939-45: Wartime-Built classes As the possibility of war loomed in the 1930s, the British Admiralty looked to update their fleet of destroyers to compete with the new ships being built by Germany and Japan, resulting in the commissioning of the powerful Tribal-class. These were followed by the designing of the first of several slightly smaller ships, which carried fewer guns than the Tribals, but were armed with a greatly enlarged suite of torpedoes. The first of these, the 'J/K/M class' was followed by a number of wartime variants, with slight changes to their weaponry to suit different wartime roles.

Designed to combat enemy surface warships, aircraft and U-boats, the British built these destroyers to face off against anything the enemy could throw at them. Using a collection of contemporary photographs and beautiful color artwork, this is a fascinating new study of the ships that formed the backbone of the Royal Navy during World War II. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995262 Konstam, Angus 262 BRITISH IRONCLADS 1860-75: HMS Warrior and the Royal Navy's 'Black Battlefleet' In November 1859, the French warship La Gloire was launched. She was the world's first seagoing ironclad - a warship built from wood, but whose hull was clad in a protective layer of iron plate. Britain, not to be outdone, launched her own ironclad the following year - HMS Warrior - which, when she entered service, became the most powerful warship in the world.

Just like the Dreadnought half a century later, this ship changed the nature of naval warfare forever, and sparked a frantic arms race. The elegant but powerful Warrior embodied the technological advances of the early Victorian era, and the spirit of this new age of steam, iron and firepower.

Fully illustrated and with detailed cutaway artwork, this book covers the British ironclad from its inception and emergence in 1860, to 1875, a watershed year, which saw the building of a new generation of recognizably modern turreted battleships. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995259 Lardas, Mark 259 US FLUSH-DECK DESTROYERS 1916-45: Caldwell, Wickes, and Clemson Classes Four pipes and flush decks - these ships were a distinctively American destroyer design. Devised immediately prior to and during the United States' involvement in World War I, they dominated the US Navy's destroyer forces all the way through to World War II.

They were deployed on North Atlantic and Norwegian Sea convoys, and virtually everywhere in the Pacific, from Alaska to Australia. Fifty were given to Great Britain in its hour of need in 1940, and many would serve in other navies, fighting under the Soviet, Canadian, Norwegian, and even the Imperial Japanese flags. They also served in a variety of roles becoming seaplane tenders, high-speed transports, minesweepers and minelayers. One was even used as a self-propelled mine during Operation Chariot, destroying the dry dock at St. Nazaire.

Fully illustrated throughout with commissioned artwork and contemporary photographs, this volume reveals the operational history of these US Navy ships that fought with distinction in both World Wars. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995264 Lardas, Mark 264 SOUTH AMERICAN BATTLESHIPS 1908-59: Brazil, Argentina, and Chile's Great Dreadnought Race In 1908 the most incredible naval arms race in history began. Flush with cash from rubber and coffee, Brazil decided to order three of the latest, greatest category of warship available - the dreadnought battleship. One Brazilian dreadnought by itself could defeat the combined gunnery of every other warship of all the other South American nations. Brazil's decision triggered its neighbor Argentina to order its own brace of dreadnoughts, which in turn forced Chile (which had fought boundary disputes with Argentina) to order some.

In the process, the South American dreadnought mania drove the three participants nearly into insolvency, led to the bankruptcy of a major shipyard, and triggered a chain of events which led Turkey to declare war on Great Britain. It also produced several groundbreaking dreadnought designs and one of the world's first aircraft carriers. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995257 Neville, Leigh 257 TECHNICALS: Non-Standard Tactical Vehicles from the Great Toyota War to Modern Special Forces Over the last 30 years, the 'technical' or armed pick-up truck has become arguably the most ubiquitous military land vehicle of modern warfare.

Harking back to the armed Jeeps and Chevrolet trucks of the SAS and Long Range Desert Group in North Africa in World War II, the world's first insurgent technicals were those of the Sahrawi People's Liberation Army in Algeria in the late 1970s, followed by the Chadian use of technical in the so-called Toyota War against Libya. Since then, technicals have seen use in Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, as well as being used by Western and Russian Special Forces.

Fully illustrated with commissioned artwork and providing rigorous analysis, this is the first history of how this deceptively simple fighting vehicle has been used and developed in conflicts worldwide

1-995252 Prenatt, Jamie 252 M113 APC 1960-75: US, ARVN, and Australian Variants in Vietnam The M113 is the most widely used and versatile armored vehicle in the world. Fielded in 1960 as a simple 'battlefield taxi', over 80,000 M113s would see service with 50 nations around the world and 55 years later, many thousands are still in use. In addition to its original role of transporting troops across the battlefield, specialized versions perform a multitude of other functions including command and control, fire support, anti-tank and anti-aircraft defense, and casualty evacuation.

This new fully-illustrated study examines the service record of the M113 from its initial fielding through to the end of the Vietnam War. It will also describe the many US, South Vietnamese, and Australian variants of the M113 used in the Vietnam War as well as information on tactics, unit tables of organization and equipment, and a selection of engagements in which the M113 played a decisive role. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995249 Romanych, Marc 249 RAILWAY GUNS OF WORLD WAR I World War I was the Golden Age of the railway gun. Even though at the start of the conflict none of the armies possessed any railway artillery pieces and the very idea was comparatively new, more railway guns were used during this war than in any other conflict.

Designed to break the stalemate of trench warfare, the first railway guns were simple, improvised designs made by mounting surplus coastal defense, fortress, and naval guns onto existing commercial railway carriages. As the war dragged on, railway artillery development shifted to longer range guns that could shell targets deep behind enemy lines. This change of role brought much larger and more sophisticated guns often manufactured by mounting long-barrel naval guns to specially-designed railway carriages.

This book details the design and development of railway guns during World War I from the very first basic designs to massive purpose built 'monster' railway guns. Accompanying the text are many rare, never-before-published, photographs and color illustrations depicting how these weapons were used during World War I. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995248 Stille, Mark 248 IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY ANTISUBMARINE ESCORTS: 1941-45 This volume details the history, weapons and tactics of the IJN's anti-submarine warfare escorts. These include the Momi class of second-rate destroyers, the Tomodzuru and Ootori classes of torpedo boars, and the several types of ASW escorts built from 1937 up to the end of the war.

In 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) went to war with a marginal anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capability. This was a lamentable state of affairs for a nation dependent upon imports to sustain its war economy. There were only a few purpose-built ASW escorts available at the start of the war and these were augmented by a handful of second-class destroyers and a dozen torpedo boats. Once the magnitude of the threat to Japan's shipping became fully apparent in 1943, the IJN made plans for mass production of ASW escorts. These arrived in 1944, but could not stop the massacre of Japanese shipping by increasingly bold and effective American submarines. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995251 Stille, Mark 251 US NAVY ESCORT CARRIERS 1942-45 While not as famous as their larger and faster sister ships such as the Essex- and Yorktown-class carriers, escort carriers made an enormous contribution towards Allied victory both in the Pacific and Atlantic theaters. Rather than relying on size or speed, it was their sheer numbers that made them so effective. Indeed, the Casablanca-class escort carrier was the most-produced aircraft carrier in history.

In partnership with the Royal Navy, they provided the backbone of Allied anti-submarine efforts in the Atlantic, finally and irrevocably turning the tide of the war against the U-boats in 1943. In the Pacific, they provided the air cover for the series of landings which led to the doorstep of Japan by 1945. These robust ships faced submarine, air, and even surface threats from the Japanese, but proved able to contend with everything thrown their way.

Fully illustrated with contemporary photographs and unique specially commissioned artwork, this book shines a new light on these unjustly overlooked workhorses of the US Navy -- ships that helped usher in the Allied victory over the Axis powers in the Atlantic and Pacific. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995258 Stille, Mark 258 Italian Cruisers of World War II The Italian Royal Navy (Regia Marina) operated one of largest cruiser forces of World War II. As a signatory to the 1922 Washington Naval Treaty, the Regia Marina immediately attempted to reinforce its treaty-limited battleship force by building seven large 10,000-ton heavy cruisers. Italian light cruisers also possessed an interesting design history and were involved in every major fleet engagement in the Mediterranean, as well as several smaller encounters with units of the British Royal Navy.

Fully illustrated with specially commissioned artwork, this fascinating volume examines the history of the Regia Marina's cruisers during World War II where they came up against the might of the British Royal Navy.

From the employment of the French Renault FT and British Mark V during their involvement in World War I, the US branched out with their own indigenous designs including the M1 Cavalry Car and the M2 Light and Medium tanks, the precursors to the Stuart and Grant tanks of World War II. Tank designers in this period faced unique challenges and so the story of early American armor is littered with failures amongst the successes. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995247 Zaloga, Steven 247 SOVIET LEND-LEASE TANKS OF WORLD WAR II The Red Army suffered such catastrophic losses of armour in the summer of 1941 that they begged Britain and the United States to send tanks. The first batches arrived in late 1941, just in time to take part in the defense of Moscow. The supplies of British tanks encompassed a very wide range of types including the Matilda, Churchill, and Valentine and even a few Tetrarch airborne tanks. American tanks included the M3 (Stuart) light tank and M3 (Lee) medium tank and the M4 Sherman tank, which became so common in 1944-45 that entire Soviet tank corps were equipped with the type.

This study examines the different types of tanks shipped to the Soviet Union during the war, Soviet assessments of their merits and problems, and combat accounts of their use in Soviet service using full color artwork, contemporary photographs and detailed cut-away illustrations. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

When the United States entered World War I, the American Expeditionary Forces used some armored cars in France, and American armored cars were used by the French Army.

The inter-war years saw considerable innovation and experimentation in armored car design. Of the 1930s scout car designs, the M3A1 scout car was good enough to be produced in very large numbers in World War II, and was widely exported to many other armies via Lend-Lease. It also served as the basis for the late M2 and M3 armored half-tracks. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

The T-90 was in fact a further evolution of the T-72 family, but the name change represented an important break in Russian/Soviet tank design history.

The T-90 has become the principal export tank of Russia, and is in service in large numbers in many countries including Algeria, India, and many of the former Soviet republics. Using detailed illustrations and full color artwork, this book will also describe the evolution of the T-90s many failed successors including the little known Bokser, Molot, and T-95, as well as its likely successor, the new T-14 Armata, and the wide range of specialized vehicles based on the T-90 chassis such as the formidable Terminator tank support vehicle. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

On 19 February, just 11 weeks after the attacks on Pearl Harbor and two weeks after the fall of Singapore, the same Japanese battle group that had attacked Hawaii was ordered to attack the ill-prepared and under-defended Australian port of Darwin.

Its heights offered artillery observation that made even approaching the ridge virtually suicidal.

Pessimistic about the ability of depleted and demoralized French units to capture the position, General Henri Gouraud was granted the use of two American divisions: the veteran 2nd 'Indianhead' Division, including the 4th (Marine) Brigade, and the untested 36th 'Arrowhead' Division of the Texas and Oklahoma National Guard.

However, the Red Army stopped the Germans short of their objectives and then launched a devastating winter counteroffensive that encircled them at Stalingrad.

Consequently, Hitler grudgingly ordered an evacuation from the Caucasus, but ordered 17. Armee to fortify the Kuban bridgehead and hold it at all costs in order to leave open the possibility of future offensives. On the other side, the Soviet Stavka ordered the North Caucasus Front and the Black Sea Fleet to eliminate the Kuban bridgehead as soon as possible. The stage was set for a contest between an immovable object and an unstoppable force.

With the help of stunning specially commissioned artwork, this book tells the enthralling story of the impressive but strategically foolish German stand at Kuban, which tied down seven Soviet armies in a sideshow battle of attrition, which the Soviets dubbed 'the Kuban meat grinder.' 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Part of this plan called for a rapid advance from Belgium through Holland up to and across the lower Rhine by the British XXX Corps along a single road already dominated by airborne troops.

Their objective along this road was the bridge at Arnhem, the target of British and Polish airborne troops. Once XXX Corps had reached this bridge it would then make for the German industrial area of the Ruhr. The operation was bold in outlook but risky in concept.

Using specially commissioned artwork and detailed analysis, Ken Ford completes his trilogy on Operation Market-Garden by examining this attack which, if successful, could have shortened the war in the west considerably.

1-996319 Katochm Hemant Singh 319 IMPHAL 1944: The Japanese Invasion of India In March 1944, the Japanese Fifteenth Army launched an offensive into India from Burma. Named 'U Go', its main objective was the capture of the town of Imphal, which provided the easiest route between India and Burma. Whoever controlled it, controlled access between the two countries. Facing off against the Japanese was the British 14th Army and its Imphal-based 4 Corps. For the next four months, over 200,000 men clashed in the hills and valley of Manipur in what has since been described as one of the greatest battles of World War II.

Although numbers vary, it is estimated that some 30,000 Japanese soldiers died and 23,000 were injured at Imphal-Kohima in 1944 due to fighting, disease, and in the retreat back to Burma. It remains the largest defeat on land ever for the Japanese Army. With fully commissioned artwork and maps, this is the complete story of the turning point in the Burma campaign in World War II. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996309 Lai, Benjamin 309 SHANGHAI AND NANJING 1937: Massacre on the Yangtze From 1931, China and Japan had been embroiled in a number of small-scale conflicts that had seen vast swathes of territory being occupied by the Japanese. On 7 July 1937, the Japanese engineered the Marco Polo Bridge Incident, which led to the fall of Beijing and Tianjin and the start of a de facto state of war between the two countries. This force then moved south, landing an expeditionary force to take Shanghai and from there drive west to capture Nanjing.

This fully-illustrated book tells the story of the Japanese assault on these two great Chinese cities. The battle of Shanghai was the first large-scale urban warfare of World War II and one of the bloodiest battles of the entire Sino-Japanese War. The determined resistance by Chinese inflicted sizable Japanese casualties, and may well have contributed to the subsequent massacre of prisoners and civilians in the battle of Nanjing, tarnishing Japan's reputation in the eyes of the world. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996314 Lardas, Mark 314 NASHVILLE 1866: From the Tennessee to the Cumberland In September 1864, the Confederate army abandoned Atlanta and were on the verge of being driven out of the critical state of Tennessee. In an attempt to regain the initiative, John Bell Hood launched an attack on Union General Sherman's supply lines, before pushing north in an attempt to retake Tennessee's capital Nashville.

This fully illustrated book examines the three-month campaign that followed, one that confounded the expectations of both sides. Instead of fighting Sherman's Union Army of the Tennessee, the Confederates found themselves fighting an older and more traditional enemy: the Army of the Cumberland. This was led by George R. Thomas, an unflappable general temperamentally different than either the mercurial Hood or Sherman. The resulting campaign was both critical and ignored, despite the fact that for eleven weeks the fate of the Civil War was held in the balance. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996330 Lardas, Mark 330 TSUSHIMA 1905: Death of a Russian Fleet Japan was closed to the world until 1854 and its technology then was literally medieval. Great Britain, France, and Russia divided the globe in the 19th century, but Japan was catching up. Its army and navy were retrained by Western powers and equipped with the latest weapons and ships. Japan wanted to further emulate its European mentors and establish a protectorate over Korea, yet Japanese efforts were blocked by Imperial Russia who had their own designs on the peninsula.

The Russo-Japanese War started with a surprise Japanese naval attack against an anchored enemy fleet still believing itself at peace. It ended with the Battle of Tsushima, the most decisive surface naval battle of the 20th century. This study describes this pivotal battle and shows how the Japanese victory over Russia led to the development of the dreadnought battleship and gave rise to an almost mythical belief in Japanese naval invincibility. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996311 Martin, Scott 311 SAVANNAH 1779: The British Turn South In 1778, Great Britain launched a second invasion of the southern colonies as part of the 'southern strategy' for victory in the American Revolutionary War. A force of 3,000 British soldiers, Hessians and Loyalists was dispatched from New York City to capture Savannah, capital of the State of Georgia. The city fell in December 1778, and became a base for British operations in the southern colonies. Desperate to regain one of the most important southern cities, Continental troops under General Benjamin Lincoln joined forces with a French naval expedition under the Admiral Charles-Henri d'Estaing in an an all-out assault on the British fortified positions protecting Savannah.

This fully illustrated study examines the costly French and Patriot attempts to retake Savannah. Replete with stunning artwork and specially commissioned maps, this is the complete story of one of the bloodiest campaigns of the American Revolutionary War. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996315 McCluskey, Allstair 315 THE HINDENBURG LINE 1918: Haig's Forgotten Triumph From 26 September until 8 October 1918, the Allied armies in France launched their largest ever combined offensive on the Western Front of World War I. The British, French, American and Belgian armies launched four attacks in rapid succession across a 250km front between the Argonne and Flanders.

At the center of this huge assault the British, First, Third and Fourth Armies, led by Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig, breached the formidable Hindenburg Line defenses and drove the Kaiser's Army from its last fully prepared defensive position west of the German border.

The impact of this defeat had a shattering effect on the Germans with their army admitting for the first time that an armistice was required to save it from annihilation. Although these decisive results were to a large extent consequences of the battle of the Hindenburg Line, the subsequent controversies over the conduct of the war meant that it went unheralded and has remained Haig's forgotten triumph. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996307 McNally, McNally 307 FONTENOY 1745: Cumberland's Bloody Defeat A disputed succession to the Austrian throne led to general war between the leading powers of Europe in 1740, with France, Spain and Prussia on one side, and Britain, Habsburg Austria and the Dutch Republic on the other. While fighting occurred across the globe, the bloodiest battles were fought on the European continent, with none more costly than the battle of Fontenoy in 1745.

Fearing an encirclement of France by a resurgent Habsburg-controlled Austria, the French commander Marshall Saxe planned to overrun the Austrian Netherlands, thereby dealing a decisive blow against their enemy's ability to wage war. Saxe's army, the cream of the French military, invaded and set up a defensive position at Fontenoy, near Tournai - daring his enemies to knock him off his perch.

This title, beautifully illustrated with full color plates, is an in-depth study of the British Duke of Cumberland's attempt to assault Saxe's position. It focuses on the inability of allied leaders to coordinate their attacks and how Cumberland came within a whisker of achieving a major victory. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996310 Powell, Lindsay 310 THE BAR KOKHBA WAR AD 132-136: The Last Jewish Revolt Against Imperial Rome In AD 132, Shim'on Ben Koseba, a rebel leader who assumed the messianic name Shim'on Bar Kokhba ('Son of a Star'), led the people of Judaea in open rebellion, aiming to establish their own independent Jewish state and to liberate Jerusalem from the Romans. During the ensuing 'Bar Kokhba War' (AKA the Second Jewish War), the insurgents held their own against the crack Roman troops sent by Emperor Hadrian for three-and-a-half years. The cost of this rebellion was catastrophic: hundreds of thousands of casualties, the destruction and enslavement of Jewish communities and a ban on Jews entering Jerusalem. Bar Kokhba remains important in Israel today because he was the last leader of a Jewish state before the rise of Zionism in modern times.

This fully illustrated volume explores the gripping story of the uprising, profiling its rebel leader Bar Kokhba as well as the Emperor Hadrian and his generals, and assesses the impact that this violent rebellion had on the region and those that were displaced. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996321 Sheppard, Si 321 TENOCHTITLAN 1519-21: Clash of Civilizations In 1519, the Conquistador Hernan Cortes landed on the mainland of the Americas. His quest to serve God, win gold, and achieve glory drove him into the heartland of what is now Mexico, where no European had ever set foot before. He marched towards to the majestic city of Tenochtitlan, floating like a jewel in the midst of Lake Texcoco.

This encounter brought together cultures that had hitherto evolved in complete isolation from each other - Catholic Spain and the Aztec Empire. What ensued was the swift escalation from a clash of civilizations to a war of the worlds. At the conclusion of the Conquistador campaign of 1519-21, Tenochtitlan lay in ruins, the last Aztec Emperor was in chains, and Spanish authority over the native peoples had been definitively asserted.

With the colorful personalities -- Cortes, Malinche, Pedro Alvarez, Cuitlahuac, Cuauhtemoc -- driving the narrative, and the vivid differences in uniforms, weapons, and fighting styles between the rival armies, illustrated with specially commissioned artwork, this explains the collapse of the Aztec Empire. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996313 Stille, Mark 313 THE PHILIPPINE SEA 1944: The Last Great Carrier Battle After suffering devastating losses in the huge naval battles at Midway and the Soloman Islands, the Imperial Japanese navy attempted to counter-attack against the US forces threatening the Home Islands. Involving the US Fifth Fleet and the Japanese Mobile Fleet, the battle of the Philippine Sea took place during the United States' amphibious invasion of the Mariana Islands during the Pacific War.

The two fleets clashed on 19-20 June 1944 and the Japanese carrier fighters were shot down in devastating numbers by US aircraft in what became known as the 'Great Marianas Turkey Shoot,' before US counterattacks and submarine strikes forced the withdrawal of the Japanese fleet. Fully illustrated with stunning specially commissioned artwork, this tells the enthralling story of the last, and largest, carrier battle of the Pacific War, the one that saw the end of the Imperial Japanese Navy as a formed fighting force. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

In order to do this they had to advance up the island chain in a combined air, naval, and ground campaign.

On the other hand, the Japanese were determined to shore up their defences on the Solomons, which was a vital part of their southern front, and would bitterly contest every inch of the Allied advance. The scene was set for one of the bloodiest campaigns of the Pacific War.

Fully illustrated with specially commissioned maps and artwork, this is the compelling story of the struggle for the Solomons, a key part of the Allied advance towards Japan which saw tens of thousands of casualties and so many ships lost that part of the ocean became known as 'Ironbottom Sound.' 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996316 Whitewood, Dickon 316 SHREWSBURY 1403: Struggle for a Fragile Crown The battle of Shrewsbury in 1403 is one of the most important battles in English history. King Henry IV faced his erstwhile ally Henry Percy Earl of Northumberland in a bloody contest on a field outside the Shropshire town of Shrewsbury where two English armies, well-matched, and fighting with similar equipment and tactics, struggled in an archery duel in which the arrows 'fell like leaves in Autumn', before the battle was ultimately decided in close quarter hand-to-hand combat. With his victory, Henry IV secured the Lancastrian hold on the kingdom and demonstrated the right of his bloodline to the throne.

Using full-color artwork and specially commissioned battlefield maps and illustrations, this is the fascinating story of the battle without which the reign of Henry V, his wars and glorious victories against the French, and the later disastrous reign of Henry VI and subsequent Wars of the Roses could not have happened. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996327 Winkler, John 327 PECKUWE 1780: The Revolutionary War on the Ohio River Frontier As the Revolutionary War raged on fields near the Atlantic, Native Americans and British rangers fought American settlers on the Ohio River frontier in warfare of unsurpassed ferocity. When their attacks threatened to drive the Americans from their settlements in Kentucky, Daniel Boone, Simon Kenton, and other frontiersmen guided an army of 970 Kentuckians into what is now Ohio to attack the principal Native American bases from which the raids emanated.

This superbly illustrated book traces Colonel George Rogers Clark's lightning expedition to destroy Chalawgatha and Peckuwe, and describes how on 8 August 1780 his Kentuckians clashed with an army of 450 Native Americans, under Black Hoof, Buckongahelas, and Girty, at the battle of Peckuwe.

The hedgerow country of lower Normandy, called the bocage, presented unanticipated tactical problems since it proved to be ideal for German infantry defense.

This book examines the June-July 1944 battle to overcome the determined German defense and secure St. Lo. The city was the site of a crucial crossroads and was thus a vital target for the invading Allied forces; the initial bombing attacks were severe. The attack by ground forces turned into a brutal attritional struggle to overcome the determined German defense.

1-996320 Zaloga, Steven 320 BRITTANY: Hitler's Final Defenses in France One of the prime objectives for the Allies following the D-Day landings was the capture of sufficient ports to supply their armies. The original Overlord plans assumed that ports along the Breton coast would be essential to expansion of the Normandy beachhead. This included the major ports at Brest and on Quiberon Bay.

The newly arrived Third US Army under Lt. Gen. George S. Patton was delegated to take on the Brittany mission. In one of the most rapid mechanized advances of the war, 3rd Army had the ports of Avranches and Quiberon encircled by the second week of August 1944. But changing priorities meant that most of 3rd Army was redeployed, meaning only a single corps was left to take the Breton port cities. The fight would drag into 1945, long after German field armies had been driven from France.

1-997224 Campbell, David 224 ISRAELI PARATROOPERS 1954-2016 From the creation of the first volunteer paratroop unit shortly after the birth of Israel and of the Israeli Defense Force, this arm of service has been recognized as elite. They have also been the first choice for daring special missions, and it is mainly from their ranks that Israel's Special Forces units have been recruited. A unique aspect of the Israeli military is the cross-posting of officers from the airborne, armored and other units, to ensure that all unit commanders share their aggressive qualities and thorough understanding of the capabilities of all arms. In this way the influence of the paratroop arm has been out of proportion to its size.

This fully-illustrated study is a complete history of Israeli paratroopers from its creation to the present day, including relevant developments in their role and organization, as well as their achievements and setbacks in conflicts such as the Six Days War and Yom Kippur War. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-997225 D'Amato, Raffaele 225 ROMAN HEAVY CAVALRY (1): Cataphractarii & Clibanarii, 1st Century BC-5th Century AD From the army of Marc Antony in the 1st century BC, Roman generals hired heavy armored cavalry to serve in their military alongside the legions. These troops, both from the northern steppes and the Persian frontiers, continued an ancient tradition of using heavy armour and long lances, and fought in a compact formation for maximum shock effect. They were quite distinct from conventional Roman light cavalry, and they served across the Empire, including in Britain. They became ever more important during the 3rd century wars against Parthia, both to counter their cavalry and to form a mobile strategic reserve.

Displaying these impressive and imposing cavalry units using vivid specially commissioned artwork, this first book in a two part series on Roman Heavy Cavalry examines their use over the Imperial period up to the fall of Western Empire in the 5th century A.D. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-997223 D'Amato, Raffaele 223 THE ETRUSCANS: 9th-2nd Centuries BC Ancient Rome had deep roots in the 'Villanovan' culture that we call today the Etruscans. Their long-lived civilization can be traced to 900-750 BC in northwest Italy. They were a seafaring people trading with and competing against Greek and Phoenician peoples, including the Carthaginians. They were also a great land-based power, especially in the 'Classical' period, where they expanded their power north into the Po Valley and south to Latium. In the 6th century BC an Etruscan dynasty ruled Rome, and their power extended southwards to the Amalfi coast. In 509 BC the Romans rose up to expel their kings, which began the long 'Etruscan twilight' when their power was squeezed by the Samnites and, most especially, the Romans.

Drawing on archaeological evidence including warrior tombs, paintings, sculptures, and fully illustrated throughout, this study examines one of the early rivals to Ancient Rome. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

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 organized 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 reorganized as a US Army-style armored division, with American tanks and other armored 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 honor of liberating Paris in August 1944. Combining a thorough analysis of their combat and organization with detailed color plates of their uniforms and equipment, this is the story of Free France's most effective fighting force. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-997219 Rottman, Gordon 219 D-Day Beach Assault Troops In the early hours of June 6, 1944, the first of over 150,000 Allied soldiers stormed five beaches in Normandy against fierce German resistance. They were specially trained and task-organized in a range of different landing teams depending on their means of transport, their tasks, and the resistance they anticipated. The first assault infantry were accompanied by tankers, combat engineers, and other specialist personnel, to breach German obstacles, knock out defensive positions, and to defend and prepare the beaches for the follow-on waves.

On some beaches the plans worked, on others they were disrupted by bad weather, faulty timing, or enemy fire, with consequences that varied from survivable confusion to absolute carnage. This is an in-depth study of the uniforms, equipment, weapons, passage, landings, and tactics of US, British, and Canadian assault units during the period from before H-Hour on June 6 to dawn on June 7. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-997221 Rottman, Gordon 221 Roman Standards & Standard-Bearers (1): 112 BC-AD 192 Roman unit standards played a important role, both ceremonially and on the battlefield. With the armies of the late Roman Republic and early Empire continually engaged on the frontiers, the soldiers selected for the dangerous honor of carrying them were figures of particular renown and splendor.

Standard-bearers wore special armor, with the heads and pelts of animals such as bears, wolves, or even lions draped over their helmets and shoulders. The standards themselves varied greatly, from the legion's Eagle and imperial portrait image to various cohort signa, flags (vexilla) and even dragon 'windsocks' (dracones) copied from barbarian enemies and allies.

This first volume of a two-part series by Roman army expert, Rafaele D'Amato uses detailed color plates and the latest research to examine these vital cogs in the Roman army machine that drove its soldiers to conquer the known world. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

This was thanks to the Marian reforms, which saw the centurion, although inferior in military rank and social class, superseding the tribune as the legion's most important officer. This period of reform in the Roman Army is often overlooked, but the invincible armies that Julius Caesar led into Gaul were the refined products of 50 years of military reforms.

Using specially commissioned artwork and detailed battle reports, this new study examines the Roman legionary soldier at this crucial time in the history of the Roman Republic from its domination by Marius and Sulla to the beginning of the rise of Julius Caesar. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Despite these successes, the Experimental Mechanised Force was disbanded in the 1930s, making Britain relatively unprepared for World War II, both in terms of armored doctrine and equipment.

This fully-illustrated new study examines the men who crewed the tanks of Britain's armored force during World War II, which was only four battalions large in 1939. It looks at the recruitment and training of the vast numbers of men required, their equipment, appearance and combat experience in every theater of the war as the British armored division sought to catch up with the German Panzers. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999514 Athanassiou, Phoebus 514 ARMIES OF THE GREEK-ITALIAN WAR 1940-41 In October 1940, an Italian army some 200,000 strong invaded Greece across its largely undefended border with Albania. Although supported by Great Britain, at first by sea and in the air and later by landing British and ANZAC troops from North Africa, Greece bore the main brunt of the six-month war.

Outclassed in materiel and outnumbered, LtGen Papagos's Greek army was so successful against the Italians in northwest Greece that, by 22 November 1940, it was advancing into Italian-held Albania. This would eventually force Hitler to send in German reinforcements to support his beleaguered Italian allies, delaying his invasion of the Soviet Union.

The Naval Troops (Troupes de la Marine) were volunteers, and earned a reputation for greater toughness and hardiness than the conscripted Metropolitan Army.

Spread throughout the French Empire, Naval Troops in this period were characterized by very large infantry and artillery regiments based in France, mixed race regiments (Regiments Mixtes), and entire native regiments raised in West Africa, Madagascar and Indochina. The latter, the so-called 'Tirailleurs' were organized and led by officers and cadres from the Naval Troops, and wore very varied and colorful uniforms based on formalized versions of traditional local costumes.

French Naval & Colonial Troops 1872-1914 uses rich and detailed full color plates as well as thorough analysis to detail the story of these tough colonial units which bore the brunt of French colonial campaigns in Africa and Vietnam. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999516 Cullen, Stephen 516 WORLD WAR II VICHY FRENCH SECURITY TROOPS After the Fall of France in 1940, a new puppet state was set up in the south. Officially known as the French State, it is better known as Vichy France. This collaborationist Vichy regime's armed forces were more active and usually more numerous than German troops in the task of hunting down and crushing the maquis -- the French Resistance guerrilla forces

This book will cover the organization and operations of Vichy French Security Forces, including: the new Vichy Police Nationale, particularly their Groupes Mobiles de Reserve, the Service d'Ordre Legionnaire, and the Milice Francaise, a ruthless anti-Resistance militia armed partly with British weapons captured from SOE airdrops.

Fully illustrated throughout with contemporary photographs and commissioned artwork, it tells the story of Occupied France from the perspective of those who sought to keep it in German hands. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

2-999506 D'AMATO, Raffaele 506 ROMAN ARMY UNITS IN THE WESTERN PROVINCES (1): 31 BC-AD 195 At its height, the Roman Empire stretched across Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, maintained by an army of modest size but great diversity.

In popular culture these soldiers are often portrayed in a generic fashion, but continuing research indicates significant variations in Roman armor and equipment not only between different legions and the provincially-raised auxiliary cohorts that made up half of the army, but also between different regions within the empire. With reference to the latest archaeological and documentary evidence this investigates how Roman Army units in the Western provinces were equipped, exploring the local influences and traditions that caused the variations in attire. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999511 D'Amato, Raffaele 511 ROMAN ARMY UNITS IN THE EASTERN PROVINCES (1): 31 BC-AD 195 Between the reigns of Augustus and Septimius Severus, the Eastern provinces of the Roman Empire frequently saw brutal fighting, most notably during the conquest of Dacia by Trajan, the suppression of the Great Revolt in Judea and intermittent clashes with Rome's great rival Parthia. In these wars, Roman soldiers had to fight in a range of different climates and terrain, from the deserts of the Middle East to the islands of the eastern Mediterranean.

Using full-color artwork, this book examines the variation of equipment and uniforms both between different military units, and in armies stationed in different regions of the Empire. Using evidence drawn from recent archaeological finds, it paints a vivid portrait of Roman army units in the Eastern provinces in the first two centuries of the Imperial period. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

During the course of the conflict, one of its main leaders - Maurice of Orange-Nassau - created an army and a tactical system that became a model throughout Europe.

This first of a two-part series focuses on the Dutch infantry. It examines how Maurice of Orange-Nassau attracted volunteers and students from across Europe, introduced innovative new training methods such as common drill movements, and standardized the organization and payment system of the army to make it more than a match for the occupying Spanish. His successes inspired officers and generals across the continent to copy his methods, including many English officers who went on to fight in the English Civil Wars.

Featuring full-color artwork and rare period illustrations, this book examines how the Dutch infantry was transformed into a fighting force able to defeat the might of Imperial Spain. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999512 Esposito, Gabriele 512 ARMIES OF THE ITALIAN WARS OF UNIFICATION 1848-70 (1): Piedmont and the Two Sicilies In the 1840s, post-Napoleonic Italy was 'a geographical expression' -- not a country, but a patchwork of states: divided between the Austrian-occupied north, and the Spanish-descended Bourbon monarchy, who ruled the south from Naples. Two decades later, it was a nation united under a single king and government, thanks largely to the efforts of the Kings of Sardinia and Piedmont, and the revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi.

This book, the first of a two-part series on the armies that fought in the Italian Wars of Unification, examines the Piedmontese and Neapolitan armies that fought in the north and south of the peninsula. Illustrated with prints, early photos and detailed commissioned artwork, this book explores the history, organization, and appearance of the armies that fought to unite the Italian peninsula under one flag. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999515 Esposito, Gabriele 515 ARMIES OF THE FIRST CARLIST WAR 1833-39 The First Carlist War broke out after the death of King Ferdinand VII, the king restored at the end of the Peninsular War thanks to Wellington's victory. The crown was claimed by both his daughter Isabella, backed by the Liberal party and his brother Don Carlos, at the head of northern ultra-conservatives centered in the Basque provinces and Navarre.

The Liberals or 'Cristinos' were supported by a 10,000-strong British Legion of volunteers led by a former aide to Wellington as well as the British Royal Navy, a Portuguese division, and the French Foreign Legion. With both armies still using Napoleonic weapons and tactics, early victories were won by the Basque general Zumalacarregui. After his death in 1835, a see-saw series of campaigns followed, fought by conventional armies of horse, foot, and guns, and supported by many irregulars and guerrillas. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999520 Esposito, Gabriele 520 ARMIES OF THE ITALIAN WARS OF UNIFICATION 1848-70 (2): Papal States, Minor States & Volunteers In the 1840s, Italy was a patchwork of states. The North was ruled by the Austrian Empire, the South by the Spanish-descended monarchy of the Two Sicilies. Over the next two decades, after wars led by Savoy/Piedmont and volunteers such as Garibaldi, an independent Kingdom of Italy emerged. These conflicts saw foreign interventions and shifting alliances among minor states, and attracted a variety of local and foreign volunteers.

This second volume in a two-part series covers the armies of the Papal States; the duchies of Tuscany, Parma, and Modena; the republics of Rome and San Marco (Venice); the transitional Kingdom of Sicily; and the various volunteer movements. These varied armies and militias wore a wide variety of highly colorful uniforms which are brought to life in stunning, specially commissioned, full color artwork. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Many of these conflicts became known as 'Banana Wars.' Some involved only lightly armed guerrillas, but others saw armies operating artillery and armored vehicles, supported by aircraft and river navies. The conflicts in Honduras and Nicaragua saw the intervention of US Marines, and later wars involved armour and aircraft from the militaries of Europe.

Using detailed color plates and a wealth of contemporary photographs, this book shows the uniforms, equipment and strategies of the armies involved in these conflicts little known in the West. Covering wars crossing the length and breadth of the continent, this is the fascinating account of the wars that helped shape modern Latin America. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999521 Lohnstein, Marc 521 ROYAL NETHERLANDS EAST INDIES ARMY 1936-42 Until 1945, Indonesia was a Dutch colony known as the Netherlands East Indies. In 1930, the area had over 60 million inhabitants and was a major exporter to Japan, providing some 13% of its oil needs - second only after the United States. Following Germany's occupation of the Netherlands in May 1940, Japan decided to expand its influence in the Netherlands East Indies.

Defending the colony was the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army (KNIL). This force, designed primarily for colonial policing, underwent a series of cutbacks in the interwar years before adopting a modernization program in 1936, which focused on building up a strike air force, introducing tanks, and increasing the firepower of the infantry and artillery.

Fully illustrated with period photographs and full-color artwork, this book examines the dress, insignia, equipment, organization, and combat performance of the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army as it faced the all-conquering Japanese forces in World War II. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999518 Thomas, Nigel 518 POLISH LEGIONS: 1914-19 Due to its partitions and dissolution in the late 18th century, hundreds of thousands of Polish soldiers enlisted in distinct units in the armies of many countries - primarily those of the Russian and Austro-Hungarian empires, but also that of the German Reich and the French Republic.

All these forces were uniformed and equipped by the parent armies, though often with explicitly Polish features. The collapse of Tsarist Russia in 1917 and of the Central Powers in 1918 allowed these diverse forces to unite in a re-created Polish Army under the new-born Second Polish Republic in November 1918. With full color illustrations of their uniforms as well as contemporary photographs, this is the fascinating story of the Poles who fought on both sides of the trenches in World War I and then united to fight for their freedom in the Russian Civil War. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-217800 Ackermann, Karen editor THE ROLE OF NATIVE AMERICANS IN MILITARY ENGAGEMENTS: From the 17th Century to the 19th Century From the landings of the first European colonists to 19th century histories to 1950s film westerns, Native Americans have been portrayed with unquestioned prejudice and ugly bias. It would not be until the 1970s that history scholars would begin to seriously demand a change in how Native Americans were viewed. The search for a full understanding of North America's numerous groups of native peoples and their contributions to US history continues.

This volume explores the Indian-non-Indian interactions from the 17th through the 19th centuries, with a focus on military encounters. The essays are arranged in a roughly chronological order, beginning with early contacts in 1609 between the Lenape and Dutch in the Delaware region, and the Mohawks and French in New France. The Wiechquaeskeck of southwestern Connecticut also deal with the Dutch in Governor Willem Kieft's War in the early to mid-17th century.

The Abenaki (1694), Shawnee (1791), and the southeastern US. tribes (mid-19th century) deal with incursions on to their lands. The final essay looks at the St. Albert Mounted Rifles, a corps of the Canadian Militia, in 1885, which was composed mostly of Metis men. In these essays, the Native Americans, whether working with the whites or against them, are active participants in constructing their lives under the impact of the early European arrivals and their descendants. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2018 US, HERITAGE BOOKS

1-215150 Clements, Eric USS CONSTITUTION: A Midshipman's Pocket Manual 1814 Launched in 1797, USS Constitution is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy. She is renowned for her actions during the War of 1812 against the Britain, when she captured numerous merchant ships and defeated five British warships. The battle with HMS Guerriere earned her the nickname 'Old Ironsides' and a long-standing public adoration that has repeatedly saved her from scrapping. She continued to serve as flagship in the Mediterranean and African squadrons, and circled the world in the 1840s. Retired from active service in 1881, Constitution served as a receiving ship until designated a museum ship in 1907.

Comprising a series of documents and illustrations that give information on the building of the ship, her wartime service history and life on board ship during the years of her service, this fascinating book tells the story of Old Ironsides. 1 vol, 144 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Each of the twelve chapters highlights a significant conflict that selectively focuses on unique Chinese characteristics of the time, including belief systems, ruling ideology, the connection between technology and warfare, military theory, political events and rulers, and foreign policy, including China's eventual interaction with the West.

The book pushes back on a variety of ideas and stereotypes, ranging from the Chinese use of gunpowder, their supposedly weak reaction to the West, the viability of the Dynastic Cycle in studying history, the context of Chinese military theory, the exclusivity of martial and cultural spheres, and the uniqueness of Western imperialism. It also offers a groundbreaking reassessment of Mao Zedong's leadership and his impact on the development of guerilla warfare. 1 vol, 196 pgs 2017 US, WESTHOLME PUBLISHING

1-217060 Fitzpatrick, David EMORY UPTON: Misunderstood Reformer Biography of Emory Upton (1839-1881) is widely recognized as one of America's most influential military thinkers. His works-The Armies of Asia and Europe and The Military Policy of the United States-fueled the army's intellectual ferment in the late nineteenth century and guided Secretary of War Elihu Root's reforms in the early 1900s. Upton is also widely misunderstood as an antidemocratic militaristic zealot whose ideas were 'too Prussian' for America. Includes 15 black and white illustrations and 4 maps.

A devout Methodist farm boy from upstate New York, Upton attended the United States Military Academy at West Point and served in the Civil War. His use of a mass infantry attack to break the Confederate lines at Spotsylvania Courthouse in 1864 identified him as a rising figure in the U.S. Army. Upton's subsequent work on military organizations in Asia and Europe, commissioned by Commanding General William T. Sherman, influenced the army's turn toward a European, largely German ideal of soldiering as a profession. Yet it was this same text, along with Upton's Military Policy of the United States, that also propelled the misinterpretations of Upton. This, however, show Upton's dedication to the ideal of the citizen-soldier and placing him within the context of contemporary military, political, and intellectual discourse. 1 vol, 344 pgs 2018 US, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS

Crucial battles of the Crimean War were fought on the hills surrounding the city, and the memory of this stalwart defense inspired those who fruitlessly battled the Germans during World War II. Twice the city has faced complete obliteration yet twice it has risen, phoenix-like, from the ashes.

1-218000 The National Archives FORTS: An Illustrated History of Building for Defence Ever since humans began to live together in settlements they have felt the need to organize some kind of defense against potentially hostile neighbors. Many of the earliest city states were built as walled towns, and during the medieval era, stone castles were built both as symbols of the defenders' strength and as protection against potential attack.

The advent of cannon prompted fortifications to become lower, denser and more complex, and the forts of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries could appear like snowflakes in their complexity and beautiful geometry. Without forts, the history of America could have taken a very different course, pirates could have sailed the seas unchecked, and Britain itself could have been successfully invaded.

This book explains the history of human fortifications, and is beautifully illustrated using photographs, plans, drawings and maps to explain why they were built, their various functions and their immense historical legacy in laying the foundations of empire. 1 vol, 224 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-930312 STRATEGY & TACTICS # 312: Alesia Alesia is a two-player game of the epic battle between Roman and Gallic forces in 52 BC. The battle pitted two of the great Leaders of that era against each other: Julius Caesar and Vercingetorix. This began as a Roman siege of the Gallic fortress at Alesia, and concluded with a decisive battle.

The game system emphasizes command control. Players pick command markers to generate actions, modeling the chaos of the original battle. The Gallic objective is to break out of Alesia and link up with the relief army coming in from off the map. The Roman's (caught in the middle) objective is to defeat the Gauls and eliminate Vercingetorix. There are two players in the game: Roman and Gauls. The game consists of three Days of Battle. Within each day, there will be several turns based on the command markers. There are 176 5/8-inch counters, with a 22x34 inch map depicting the area around the fortified village of Alesia and the Roman fortifications and towers surrounding the village. Components: One 22x34-inch map and 176 counters. 1 vol, 84 pgs 2018 US, DECISION GAMES

1-213690 Anderson, Erich CATAPHRACTS: Knights of the Ancient Eastern Empires Assesses the development, equipment, tactics and combat record of cataphracts (and the similar clibinarii), showing also how enemies sought to counter them.

Cataphracts were the most heavily armored form of cavalry in the ancient world, with riders and mounts both clad in heavy armor. Originating among the wealthiest nobles of various central Asian steppe tribes, such as the Massegatae and Scythians, they were adopted and adapted by several major empires. The Achaemenid Persians, Seleucids, Sassanians and eventually the Romans and their Byzantine successors.

Usually armed with long lances, they harnessed the mobility and mass of the horse to the durability and solid fighting power of the spear-armed phalanx. Although very expensive to equip and maintain (not least due to the need for a supply of suitable horses), they were potential battle winners and remained in use for many centuries. This is a valuable study of one of the most interesting weapon systems of the ancient world. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-218440 Carr, John THE KOMNENE DYNASTY: Byzantium's Struggle for Survival 1057-1185 The 128-year dynasty of the Komneni (1057 to 1185) was the last great epoch of Byzantium, when the empire had to fend off Turkish and Norman foes simultaneously. Starting with the extremely able Alexios I, and unable now to count on help from the West, the Komneni played their strategic cards very well. Though the dynasty ended in cruelty and incompetence under Andronikos I (the Terrible), it fought a valiant rear-guard action in keeping eastern Christendom alive.

The Komnene dynasty saw several changes in Byzantine military practice, such as the adoption of heavy cavalry on the western model, the extensive use of foreign mercenaries and the neglect of the navy (both of which were to prove a huge and possibly fatal disadvantage). A chapter is devoted to the famous Varangian Guard, which included many Saxons in exile following the Norman conquest of England. The terrible defeat at Myriokephalon in 1176 sealed the doom of the dynasty, preparing the way for the conquest of Constantinople by the Fourth Crusaders. 1 vol, 496 pgs 2018 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-213710 Champion, Jeff PYRRHUS OF EPIRUS Pyrrhus was born into the royal house of Epirus, northwest Greece, but his mother was forced to flee into exile to protect his life when he was a mere infant. Yet he prospered in troubled times and rose from a refugee to a king. Always an adventurer he was deeply involved in the cut-and-thrust campaigning, coups and subterfuges of the Successor kingdoms. At various times, he was king of Epirus (twice), Macedon (twice), and Sicily, as well as overlord of much of southern Italy.

In 281 BC he was invited by the southern Italian states to defend them against the aggressive expansion of the Rome. His early victories at Heraclea and Asculum were so hard-fought that a 'Pyrrhic victory' still means one gained at crippling cost. These were the first fascinating duels between the developing Roman legions and the hitherto-dominant Hellenistic way of war with its pike phalanxes and elephants.

Pyrrhus ultimately failed in Italy and Sicily but went on to further military adventures in Greece, eventually being killed while storming the city of Argos. 1 vol, 176 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-218260 Chrystal, Paul WARS AND BATTLES OF ANCIENT GREECE The book has context as its focus: each of the battles covered is, where sources permit, placed in its historical, political, and social context: why was the battle fought, how was it fought, what was the outcome, and what happened next? No war or battle has ever been fought in isolation - there is always a prelude, a casus belli, and a series of consequences. These are revealed wherever possible for each of the wars and battles in this book.

In order to reinforce our focus on context the book includes chapters covering warfare in civilizations and cultures before Greece, the Greek war machine, and Greek women and conflict. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2018 UK, FONTHILL MEDIA

1-218150 Cole, Myke LEGION vs. PHALANX: The Epic Struggle for Infantry Supremacy in the Ancient World From the time of Ancient Sumeria, the heavy infantry phalanx dominated the battlefield. Armed with spears or pikes, standing shoulder to shoulder with shields interlocking, the men of the phalanx presented an impenetrable wall of wood and metal to the enemy. Until, that is, the Roman legion emerged to challenge them as masters of infantry battle.

Covering the period in which the legion and phalanx clashed (280-168 BC), covers tactics, arms, and equipment, organization, and deployment. Drawing on original primary sources to examine six battles in which the legion fought the phalanx -- Heraclea (280 BC), Asculum (279 BC), Beneventum (275 BC), Cynoscephalae (197 BC), Magnesia (190 BC), and Pydna (168 BC) - he shows how and why the Roman legion, with its flexible organization, versatile tactics, and iron discipline, came to eclipse the hitherto untouchable Hellenistic phalanx and dominate the ancient battlefield. 1 vol, 288 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-214460 Elliot, Paul WARFARE IN NEW KINGDOM EGYPT The New Kingdom of Egypt marks the apogee of military organization and preparedness. Beginning the era under foreign occupation, the Egyptians built up an army to challenge the invaders and liberate their land. Using the newest battlefield technologies (bows, chariots, and hand weapons), the new pharaohs pushed the frontiers of the New Kingdom into Syria and Ethiopia. This is the era of Set I, Ramses II, and Tuthmosis III, the greatest military pharaohs in Egyptian history.

Describes how the Egyptian war machine was structured, supplied, and fought. It considers all aspects, some often neglected, such as campaign tents, logistics, and rations, in addition to the design of hand weapons and bows. Various uniforms and kits have been reconstructed for the book, giving the reader a very immediate sense of what an Egyptian warrior's equipment looked like. 1 vol, 176 pgs 2017 UK, FONTHILL MEDIA

1-216850 Elliott, Simon SEPTIMIUS SEVERUS IN SCOTLAND: The Northern Campaigns of the First Hammer of the Scots Since 1975 much new archaeological evidence has come to light to illuminate the immense undertaking of Septimius Severus' campaigns in Scotland, allowing for the first time the true story of this savage invasion to be told.

In the early 3rd century Severus, the aging Roman emperor, launched an immense 'shock and awe' assault on Scotland that was so savage it resulted in eighty years of peace at Rome's most troublesome border. The book shows how his force of 50,000 troops, supported by the fleet, hacked their way through the Maeatae around the former Antonine Wall and then pressed on into Caledonian territory up to the Moray Firth.

Severus was the first of the great reforming emperors of the Roman military, and his reforms are explained in the context of how he concentrated power around the imperial throne. There is also an in-depth look at the political, economic and social developments that occurred in the Province. 1 vol, 288 pgs 2018 UK, GREENHILL BOOKS

1-215460 Farrojh, Kaveh THE SASSANIANS: The Armies of Ancient Persia This book gives an account of the Roman relationship with Persia and how it was shaped by the actions of Alexander the Great long before the events. Numerous Roman emperors led armies eastward against the Persians, seeking to emulate or exceed the glorious conquests of Alexander. Some achieved successes but more often the result was ignominious defeat or death. Even as the empire declined, court propagandists and courtiers looked for flattering ways to compare their now-throne-bound emperors with Alexander. All the while there was a small segment of the Roman intelligentsia who disparaged Alexander and his misdeeds.

While the Romans dreamed of conquering the Persian realm, the Persians of the Parthian and Sassanian dynasties dreamed of regaining the lands of the eastern Mediterranean snatched from their Achaemenid ancestors by Alexander. Echoes of this revanchist policy can be seen in Iran's support of Shiites in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Lebanon. 1 vol, 504 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-216160 Fields, Nic GOD'S CITY: Byzantine Constantinople Byzantium. Was it Greek or Roman, familiar or hybrid, barbaric or civilized, Oriental or Western?

In the late 11th century, Constantinople was the largest and wealthiest city in Christendom, the seat of the Byzantine emperor, Christ's vice-regent on earth, and the center of a predominately Christian empire, steeped in Greek cultural and artistic influences, yet founded and maintained by a Roman legal and administrative system.

Despite the amalgam of Greek and Roman influences, however, its language and culture was definitely Greek. Constantinople truly was the capital of the Roman empire in the East, and from its founding under the first Constantinus to its fall under the 11th and last Constantinus the inhabitants always called themselves Romaioi, Romans, not Hellenikes, Greeks. Over its millennium long history the empire and its capital experienced many vicissitudes that included several periods of waxing and waning and more than one 'golden age'.

Its political will to survive is still eloquently proclaimed in the monumental double land walls of Constantinople, the greatest city fortifications ever built, on which the forces of 'barbarism' dashed themselves for a thousand years.

Indeed, Byzantium was one of the longest lasting social organizations in history. Very much part of this success story was the legendary Varangian Guard, the elite body of axe-bearing Northmen sworn to remain loyal to the true Christian emperor of the Romans. There was no hope for an empire that had lost the will to prosecute the grand and awful business of adventure. The Byzantine empire was certainly not of that stamp. 1 vol, 296 pgs 2018 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-217840 Fratantuono, Lee CALIGULA: An Unexpected General Offers a new appraisal of Gaius Caligula as a surprisingly competent military strategist, arguing that his achievements helped to secure Roman military power in Europe for a generation. Caligula reigned for four short years from 37 to 41 CE before his infamous tenure came to a violent end. While much has been written about Caligula's notorious excesses and court life, relatively little of his military and foreign policy has been seriously studied.

This is a military history of Rome during Caligula's reign. Caligula had been raised in a military camp (his nickname, Caligula, means 'Little Boot'. His years as emperor came in the wake of the great consolidation of Tiberius' gains in Germany and Pannonia, and in large part made possible the invasions of Gaul and Britain that were undertaken by his uncle and successor, Claudius. His expeditions in Gaul were part of a program of imitation of his storied predecessor, and crowning completion of what had been left undone in the relatively conservative military policy years of Augustus and Tiberius. 1 vol, 240 pgs 2018 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-215380 Fratantuono. Lee LUCULLUS: The Life and Campaigns of a Roman Conqueror The military achievements of Lucius Licinius Lucullus (118-57/56 B.C.) have been the subject of admiration and great respect throughout the history of the study of warfare. Yet there have been few studies dedicated to a comprehensive examination of exactly how Lucullus conquered the Roman East and made it a more or less cohesive part of the empire.

Lee Frantantuono considers every aspect of Lucullus' life, starting with the training and education of a future Roman officer, but the greatest emphasis is on his military strategy and tactics during the Third Mithridatic War and his military adventures in Armenia.

His most famous achievement was his victory against immense odds at the land battle of Tigranocerta. We are also reminded that he one of the most formidable naval strategists of the Roman Republic. Lucullus complicated relationship with Sulla and Crassus is explored and the study concludes with the retirement of the man Pliny the Elder memorably referred to as 'Xerxes in a Toga' -- a patron of the arts and master of a life of horticulture and reflection. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-215580 Grainger, John KINGS AND KINGSHIP IN THE HELLENISTIC WORLD: 350 - 30 BC Between c.350 BC and 30 BC the Mediterranean world was one in which kings ruled. The exceptions were the Greek cities and Roman Italy. But for most of that period neither of these republican areas was central to events. For the crucial centuries between Alexander the Great and the Roman conquest of Macedon, the political running was made by kings, and it is their work and loves and experience which is the subject here.

Rome's expansion extinguished a series of monarchies and pushed back the area which was ruled by kings for a time, but the process of building a republican empire eventually rebounded on the city, and the Romans empire came to be ruled by an emperor who was in fact a facsimile of a Hellenistic king.

Rather than attempting a narrative of the various kingdoms, this takes a thematic approach, considering various aspects of Hellenistic kingship in turn. This highlights the common features as well as the differences across the various dynasties. How did one become king? How was a smooth succession secured and what happened when it was not? What were the duties of a king, and what were the rewards and distractions? These are just a few of the interesting facets examined in this original and fascinating book. 1 vol, 270 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-215550 Hughes, Ian GAISERIC: The Vandal Who Destroyed Rome While Gaiseric has not become a household name like other 'barbarian' leaders such as Attila or Genghis Khan, his sack of Rome in 455AD has made his tribe, the Vandals, synonymous with mindless destruction. Gaiseric, however, was no moronic thug, proving himself a highly skillful political and military leader and was one of the dominant forces in Western Mediterranean region for almost half a century.

The book starts with a concise history of the Vandals before Gaiseric's reign and analyses the tactics and weaponry with which they carved a path across the Western Roman Empire to Spain. It was in Spain that Gaiseric became their king and he that led the Vandals across the straits of Gibraltar to seize a new home in North Africa, depriving Rome of one of its most important remaining provinces and a key source of grain. Roman attempts at reconquest were defeated and the Balearic Islands, Sicily, Corsica, and Sardinia were all added to Gaiseric's kingdom.

His son, Huneric, was even betrothed to Eudoxia, daughter of the Emperor Valentinian III and it was her appeal for help after her father's murder that led Gaiseric to invade and sack Rome. He took Eudoxia and the other imperial ladies back to Africa with him, subsequently defeating further attempts by the Eastern Roman Empire to recapture the vital North African territory.

Ian Hughes' analysis of the Gaiseric as king and general reveals him as the barbarian who did more than anyone else to bring down the Western Roman Empire, but also as a great leader in his own right and one of the most significant men of his age. 1 vol, 304 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-215360 Hyden, Marc GAIUS MARIUS: The Rise and Fall of Rome's Saviour Gaius Marius was one of the most remarkable and significant figures of the late Roman Republic. At a time when power tended to be restricted to a clique of influential families, he rose from relatively humble origins to attain the top office of consul. He even went on to hold the post an unprecedented seven times.

His political career flourished but was primarily built on military success. First serving in the Numantine War in Spain, he later rose to high command and brought a long-running war in North Africa to a successful conclusion, bringing the Numidian King Jurgurtha back in chains. His return was timely as northern barbarian tribes threatened Italy and had previously defeated several Roman armies. Marius reformed and retrained the Republic's forces and decisively defeated the invaders that had easily overpowered his predecessors.

Marius' subsequent career was primarily that of an elder statesman, but it was dominated by his rivalry with his erstwhile subordinate, Sulla, which ultimately led to the latter's bloody coup. Marius, once hailed as the savior of Rome, eventually became a desperate fugitive, literally fleeing for his life from his pursuers. However, after several harrowing brushes with death, Marius seized an opportunity to return to Rome and mete out justice to his enemies, which tarnished his once-enviable reputation. 1 vol, 344 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-215570 MacDowall, Simon THE GOTHS: Conquerors of the Roman Empire In the late 4th century, pressure from the Huns forced the Goths to cross the Danube into the Roman Empire. The resultant Battle of Adrianople in 378 was one of Rome's greatest defeats. Both western (Visigoth) and eastern (Ostrogoth) branches of the Goths had a complex relationship with the Romans, sometimes fighting as their allies against other 'barbarian' interlopers but carving out their own kingdoms in the process. Under Alaric the Visigoths sacked Rome itself in 410 and went on to establish a kingdom in Gaul (France).

They helped the Romans defeat the Hunnic invasion of Gaul at Chalons in 451 but continued to expand at Roman expense. Defeated by the Franks they then took Spain from the Vandals. The Ostrogoths had a similar relationship with the Eastern Roman Empire before eventually conquering Italy. Adrianople, the events of 410, and the Ostrogoths' long war with Belisarius, including the Siege of Rome, are among the campaigns and battles Simon MacDowall narrates in detail. He analyses the arms and contrasting fighting styles of the Ostro- and Visi- Goths and evaluates their effectiveness against the Romans. 1 vol, 184 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-218290 MacDowall, Simon CONQUERORS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE: The Franks Examines how this relatively small group of Germans came to be overlords of the former Roman province of Gaul, giving their name to France in the process. From their earliest incursions into the Empire, down to their last battle against Romans at the Battle of Casilinum (554), this studies the Frankish way of warfare and assesses its effectiveness. The size and composition of their armies, their weapons (including the characteristic Francisca axe), equipment, and tactics are discussed. Includes 42 color and b/w illustrations.

In this tumultuous period, the Franks had a complex relationship with the Romans, being by turns invaders, recruits to the legions, and independent allies. Accordingly, this book also covers the Franks' role in defending the Rhine frontier against subsequent invasions by the Vandals, Alans, Suebi, and the Huns. Their success in defending their new homeland against all comers allowed them, under the leadership of the Merovingian dynasty of Clovis, to establish the Frankish kingdom as one of the most enduring of the 'barbarian' successors to the power of Rome. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2018 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-214690 Matyszak, Philip SPARTA: Rise of a Warrior Nation Their contemporaries were fascinated by the Spartans and we still are. They are portrayed as the stereotypical macho heroes: noble, laconic, totally fearless and impervious to discomfort and pain. What makes the study of Sparta so interesting is that to a large extent the Spartans lived up to this image.

Ancient Sparta, however, was a city of contrasts. We might admire their physical toughness and heroism in adversity but Spartans also systematically abused their children. They gave rights to citizen women that were unmatched in Europe until the modern era, meanwhile subjecting their conquered subject peoples to a murderous reign of terror. Though idealized by the Athenian contemporaries of Socrates Sparta was almost devoid of intellectual achievement.

Philip Matyszak explores two themes: how Sparta came to be the unique society it was, and the rise of the city from a Peloponnesian village to the military superpower of Greece. But above all, his focus is on the Spartan hoplite, the archetypal Greek warrior who was respected and feared throughout Greece in his own day, and who has since become a legend. The reader is shown the man behind the myth; who he was, who he thought he was, and the environment which produced him. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-217750 Matyszak, Phillip SPARTA: Fall of a Warrior Nation Universally admired in 479 BC, the Spartans were masters of the Greek world by 402 BC, only for their state to collapse in the next generation. What went wrong? Was the fall of Sparta inevitable? Examines the political blunders and failures of leadership that combined with unresolved social issues to bring down the nation - even as its warriors remained invincible on the battlefield.

The Spartans believed their constitution and society above the changes sweeping their world, and in resisting change, they were eventually overwhelmed by it. Yet this is also a story of defiance, for the Spartans refused to accept their humiliation and - although never more than a tiny and underpopulated city-state - for many years their city exercised influence far beyond its size and population. This is a chronicle of political failure, but also a lesson in how to go down fighting. Even with the Roman legions set to overwhelm their city, the Spartans never gave up. 1 vol, 192 pgs 2018 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-218280 McCall, Jeremiah CLAN FABIUS DEFENDERS OF ROME: A History of the Republic's Most Illustrious Family The history of the Fabii Maximii is in many ways that of the Roman Republic. In the legends and historical scraps that survived the Republic, the members of the Fabius clan were, more often than not, the hammers that forged the empire. Few families contributed more to the survival and success of the Republic and for so many centuries. Few could boast such great glories; perhaps none could match the record of Fabian offices and honors in the Republic. Though the bloodline sank into obscurity in the early empire, the name still carried memories of great achievements past.

A historical detective work, this book explores the facts and fables of the Republic's most distinguished family. Chapters investigate not only the lives and careers of the Fabii Maximi, but the critical military and political contexts of their days. As a result, readers get not only the story of the Roman Republic's rise and domination of an empire, but a closer look at a family of Romans who made it possible. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2018 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-972031 McNab, Chris 031 GREEK HOPLITE vs PERSIAN WARRIOR 499-479 BC The Greco-Persian Wars (499-449 BCE) convulsed Greece, Asia Minor and the Near East for half a century. Through a series of bloody invasions and pitched battles, the mighty Persian Empire pitted itself against the smaller armies of the Greeks, strengthened through strategic alliances. This epic conflict also brought together two different styles of warfare: the Greek hoplite phalanx and the combined spear and projectile weapon-armed Persian infantry.

Analyzing the battles of Marathon, Thermopylae and Plataea from the eyes of a soldier, this study explores the experience of front-line combat during the first two decades of the Greco-Persian Wars. Fully illustrated with modern photographs and archival images, and drawing directly on primary sources and the most authoritative recent research, this is the enthralling story of the fighting men of Greece and Persia and the tactics and technologies they employed. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2018 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-213700 Michalopoulos, Miltiadis IN THE NAME OF LYKOURGOS: The Rise and Fall of the Spartan Revolutionary Movement (243-146BC) In the middle of the 3rd century BC, Sparta was a shadow of its glorious past. Politically and militarily weakened and with huge inner social problems, she seemed to have followed the fate of most contemporary city states and fallen on the fringe of the political developments of her time.

The 3rd century was a time when the great states and the Hellenistic empires were prominent. But contrary to the other city states, which compromised with the new political forces of their time, Sparta resisted stubbornly and tried to reclaim the hegemony of southern Greece. In this fight, Sparta showed unexpected vigor, even defying one of the most formidable powers of the time: Macedonia. The uneven collision that followed culminated tragically and painfully for Sparta at the Battle of Sellasia in 222BC. And still Sparta refused to compromise.

After a while, she managed to recover and became once more a player on the international stage, not hesitating this time to challenge the most powerful state of the ancient world: Rome.

This last Spartan twilight, the revolutionary movement that sparked it and the two ultimate turning points of her history (the battle of Sellasia and the siege of Sparta by the Romans) are analysed in this book with exhaustive bibliography and special emphasis on the military aspects of this epic fight. The original Greek edition of In the Name of Lykourgos received great critical acclaim and was named winner of the 2009 Lakedaimonian Prize of the Academy of Athens. It is translated into English for the first time. 1 vol, 272 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-218430 Powell, Lindsay AUGUSTUS AT WAR: The Struggle for the Pax Augusta A new and penetrating assessment of Augustus as ancient Rome's military commander-in-chief. The words Pax Augusta - or Pax Romana - evoke a period of uninterrupted peace across the vast Roman Empire. Lindsay Powell exposes this as a fallacy. Almost every year between 31 BC and AD 14 the Roman Army was in action somewhere, either fighting enemies beyond the frontier in punitive raids or for outright conquest; or suppressing banditry or rebellions within the borders.

Remarkably over the same period Augustus succeeded in nearly doubling the size of the Empire. How did this second-rate field commander, known to become physically ill before and during battle, achieve such extraordinary success? Did he, in fact, have a grand strategy?

Powell reveals Augustus as a brilliant strategist and manager of war. As commander-in-chief (imperator) he made changes to the political and military institutions to keep the empire together, and to hold on to power himself. His genius was to build a team of loyal but semi-autonomous deputies (legati) to ensure internal security and to fight his wars for him, while claiming their achievements as his own. The book profiles more than 90 of these men, as well as the military units under their command, and the campaigns they fought.

1-215370 Roberts, Mike HANNIBAL'S ROAD: The Second Punic War in Italy 213-203 BC Many books have been written on the Second Punic War and Hannibal in particular but few give much space to his campaigns in the years from 213 - 203 BC'. Most studies concentrate on Hannibal's series of stunning victories in the early stages of the war, culminating at Cannae in 216 BC, then refocus on the activities of his nemesis, Scipio Africanus, in Spain until the two meet in the final showdown at Zama. But this has led to the neglect of some of the Carthaginian genius' most remarkable campaigns.

By 212 the wider war was definitely going against the Carthaginians. Yet Hannibal, despite being massively outnumbered and with little support from home, was able to sustain his polyglot army and campaign actively across southern Italy for another ten years. His skillful maneuvering and victory in numerous engagements kept several veteran armies of the normally aggressive Romans tied up and on the defensive, until Scipio's invasion of North Africa pulled him home to defend Carthage. Mike Roberts follows the course of these remarkable events in detail, analyzing Hannibal's strategy and aims in this phase of the war and revealing a genius that had lost none of its luster in adversity. 1 vol, 288 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD
