This box set of hard plastic figures allows you to build 20 different Soldiers to play in the game Frostgrave. To help you design the perfect Wizard's warband, the box set contains 100 weapon/ arm variants, 40 heads, and over 30 pieces of equipment. No two Wizard's warbands should ever be the same!

1-FGVP02 FROSTGRAVE CULTISTS 28mm Miniatures Death cultists are mortal men and women who have sworn their service to an undead master, usually in the hope of achieving some form of immortality. They normally come from the lowest rung of society and have few useful skills and little combat training. What they lack in ability, however, they make up for in fanaticism and fearlessness in the face of death. When sent out by their masters, death cultists generally conceal their identities behind masks and hoods, but proclaim their allegiances by adorning themselves with bones, chains and other symbols of death.

The Frostgrave Cultists box set contains enough parts to make 20 different figures. There are multiple heads, arms, weapons, and accouterments per frame -- no two warbands will ever be the same.

Cultists feature in Thaw of the Lich Lord as opponents in the scenarios and as random encounters. They should also be used as the soldiers for Warbands of evil wizards, especially ones who've embraced Lichdom.

The Cultists have been designed to compliment the Frostgrave Soldiers plastic box set. By that we mean the arms, heads, and equipment are interchangeable, giving you even MORE choice to built a unique and personal Warband.

And as an extra bonus, the Cultist plastic frame includes heads and arms to convert your Soldiers or Cultists into skeletons and Zombies. True Frostgrave Undead! Perfect to represent your 'risen from the dead' ex-soldiers.

1-HC60609 CORGI A27M MARK VII CROMWELL TANK: 95mm Howitzer 1:50 Scale The Cromwell tank was used by the British Army during the later stages of World War II. The Cromwell was ordered in 1941 and intended to replace the lightweight Crusader 'cruiser' tank by being more heavily armoured, and, it was hoped, more survivable in battle. Its greater weight was to be driven by a 600-horsepower Rolls Royce Meteor engine, a derivative of Rolls Royce's line of aircraft engines. Initial models, however, were powered by other engines and were designated Cavaliers and Centaurs when they entered service in mid-1942. The first genuine Cromwells with Meteor engines entered service in early 1943.

The Cromwell tank weighed about 27 tons and had a top speed of 38 miles per hour and a range of between 80 and 170 miles, depending on the terrain. It was initially armed with a 75mm gun and two 7.92mm machine guns. The Cromwell's main assets were its speed, maneuverability, and ease of repair. It first entered battle in large numbers in mid-1944, during the Normandy Invasion and the ensuing campaign across northern France. From Normandy on, Cromwells and American Sherman tanks formed the backbone of British armored divisions. Like the Shermans, however, most Cromwells were outgunned by the more powerful German Panther and Tiger tanks. Cromwell tanks served in British armies until the war ended in Europe in mid-1945.

The lanterna or great galley was an oversized variant of the standard galley. Measuring up to 180 feet long, and sporting two or three masts, they were slow ships and (depending on overall size) needed 200 or more oarsmen to row.

Lanternas were built for transporting 400 soldiers into battle and crushing the enemy with a great amount of ordnance in the bow. Named after the large lanterns mounted on the sterns which were used for signaling and recognition, the lanterna was most often used as flagships by commanders.

The Galleass was slow and not very maneuverable (They were towed into place at the battle of Lepanto) but more than made up for this by having 360-degree fire power and high defensive capabilities. In a sense, the Galleas was a floating fortress! 1 vol, 1 pgs 2015 US, SKULL&CROWN STRATAGEM INC

It also comes with all requisite tokens and command dials, as well as more than a dozen ship and upgrade cards. The expansion's two ship cards allow you to outfit your Star Destroyer as either a Victory I or Victory II, and its fourteen upgrades open a wide range of strategic possibilities as they allow you to upgrade your armament, your crew, and even your Star Destroyers themselves.

1-VXA014 BALEARIC SLINGERS: Victrix 28mm Plastic Miniatures Set of 12 figures. Balearic slingers were used extensively throughout the Punic Wars and would feature in the armies of Rome and Carthage. Although ammunition in the form of stones could be found readily many slingers favored lead missiles due the their smaller size and the fact they were very difficult for the enemy to see with the naked eye. Some missiles would be cast from lead and feature fins that would aid flight and trajectory.

The sling had been a popular weapon throughout ancient history but it was the Balearic slinger the presented the zenith of the use of the sling as an effective weapon of war. It is said that the slingers from the Balearic weapons had been proficient with the sling for many years using it both in warfare and hunting. With the onset of the Punic Wars there was much opportunity for these slingers to hire themselves out as mercenaries and thus much emphasis was put into training with the sling. It is said that a good slinger could propel his missile up to 400 meters, this being greater then the bow and arrow. 1 vol, 12 pgs 2016 UK VICTRIX LTD

1-VXA019 MACEDONIAN PHALANGITES: Victrix 28mm Plastic Miniatures Phalangites were pike (sarissa) armed close order infantry. They wore a helmet, greaves, and Linothorax armour with a round rimless shield called an Aspis. This was smaller than the Greek hoplite shield to enable the Phalangite to wield the pike in both hands when in combat.
We have included two types of helmet styles in the set. There are the Phrygian style with no side crest to represent the line Phalanx units. We also added a helmet with side feather which could be used for file leaders. There are also helmets with side crest to represent the Hypaspists if you choose to have these armed as Phalangites.

Tactically both Phillip and Alexander used the Phalanx to pin the enemy, then delivered the hammer blow with the Companion cavalry (they will be coming in plastic). Alexander took 9,000 Phalangites with him on his Persian expedition and joined these with the bridgehead forces of Parmenion sent a year ahead.

1-VXA020 SUCCESSOR PHALANGITES: Victrix 28mm Plastic Miniatures Successor Phalangites in most aspects looked very much like the earlier Macedonian Phalangites. The only real difference in appearance would have been helmet styles, there will have been a greater variety of styles as the period stretched from the 4th to the 2nd century with many changes in fashion. We have included a great variety of helmets in the Successor set as well as extending the choice of crests allowing customers many many head variants.

The other option included in the set is the addition of separate legs in trousers. These are to represent Eastern Phalangites of Persian and Eastern descent. Before Alexanders death he had raised a corps of 30,000 young Asiatics trained in the Macedonian style (usually meaning as Phalangites) called epigonoi (Inheritors). These may well have formed the nucleus of the Eastern looking Phalanx used by the Seleucids. Finally the Phalanx used by Mithradates of Pontus may well have looked like this.

1-VXA021 MACEDONIAN HYPASPISTS: Victrix 28mm Plastic Miniatures The Hypaspists were the Macedonian foot guards. They were tough and highly trained and disciplined. There is a lot of debate as to how the Hypaspists fought? and how they were armed?
Were they like traditional Hoplites with a long thrusting spear and large round Hoplite shield? (As we have made them). Or were they lightly armed Peltast types or armed and fought as Phalangites? The answer is probably that they were able to fight as all three. They had the position of honor on the right wing in battle and were often taken on smaller fast moving combined arms missions with cavalry and other light troops.

If you want Hypaspist armed as Phalanx just use the Macedonian Phalangites set with the Guard helmet heads provided.

If you want to make lightly armed Hypaspists armed as Peltasts. Why not use the Velite bodies from the Republican Roman sets and add a Hypaspist head and a Javelin arm.

We have made them armed as traditional Hoplites and have included some Corinthian style helmets and crests so you can use the figures as Hoplites. They will also mix with the other Victrix Greek hoplite sets.

1-WGRAWI02 AWI FIELD ARTILLERY -- 28mm Miniature Figures There were few battles that did not feature artillery of some kind, and any General would have been very happy to have the support of medium or light guns. The guns were on the whole bravely and well served by both sides, inflicting losses at long range with bounding iron cannon balls, and using case shot - a tin of tightly-packed musket balls - at close range. This box can be assembled and painted to represent Continental gunners, including the famous 'Molly Pitcher' (below), or their opposite numbers, the Royal Artillery.

Contains the following plastic figures:
* 2 cannon. Can be built as either 3-pdr or 6-pdr cannon and with British Royal Artillery Crew or Continental Army gunners
* 1 'Molly Pitcher' figure

1-WGRAWI05 AWI WOODLAND INDIANS TRIBE -- 28mm Miniature Figures The British army in America was tiny, so much of the defense was traditionally performed by the Militias. These were civilian bodies, locally manned and equipped with state muskets. Their performance varied greatly, some behaving very well on the field whilst others deserted or broke and ran when under pressure. What they did do was add manpower to both armies. Militias fought for the American side, but thousands also fought as Loyalists for the Crown Forces.

1-WGRAWI06 AWI COLONIAL MILITIA MEN -- 28mm Miniature Figures The Indian tribes, or Confederations, were themselves split on whether to join in a war or maintain the peace. As with most complicated conflicts, old alliances, promises and bribes - and some vengeance - all played their part in deciding which faction to support. The majority of the Indian tribes chose to side with the British forces, who also paid and supplied them to harass the American soldiery and their farms. Armed with muskets and tomahawks and skilled in fieldcraft, Indian war parties brought terror to men caught up in the woods.

Prior to 1945 the 23rd Hussars had been primarily a Sherman equipped unit but in January of that year, as Germany was? entered , they traded them in for Comet Mk.1 s, a batch of 95mm gunned? Cromwell Tanks for close support work and turretless Honey tanks for reconnaissance purposes.

1-WGACON3 Priestley, Rick BEYOND THE GATES OF ANTARES: Concord C3 Drop Squad Drop troops are the most heavily armored and armed of the Concord Combined Command's Strike forces. Their role is to spearhead assaults onto enemy held planets, and capture and hold objectives without the support of conventional heavy equipment. For this reason Drop Squads are heavily armed with powerful plasma weaponry including the ferocious plasma lance, capable of destroying even heavily armored targets.

Drop Squads are equipped with grav chutes, more accurately anti-gravity or AG chutes, enabling them to descend directly through the atmosphere to their target. Dropping into combat is a risky affair and only used as a last resort. More commonly troops would be dropped some distance from the enemy and move to their positions overland. As well as allowing troops to drop through the atmosphere AG chutes also make it easier for troops to move quickly overland assisted by anti-gravity, or to traverse open water or other terrain impenetrable to ordinary troops.

1-WGAFRB3 Priestley, Rick BEYOND THE GATES OF ANTARES: Freeborn Vardanari Squad The Freeborn trade technology, goods and services throughout Antarean space - including the services of mercenary fighters. The best of these are native Freeborn troops and the very best of the best are the professional guards who serve the most powerful Freeborn families.

These are the Vardanari - the personal bodyguards and retainers of the noble families of the Vardo - as each Freeborn community is called. Vardanari units are lavishly equipped and uniformed at great expense, an expression of the grandeur and status of the family they serve. As well as being elite troops Vardanari are trusted attendants and advisors. Officers are often younger relatives of those they protect, and who will one day rise to positions of power and influence within the Vardo. Unfortunately, rivalry between the most powerful families means that armed guards are a necessity of life, even in public and amongst allies and friends.

Vardanari are armed with sleek plasma carbines, the most effective man-carried weapons of Antarean space, capable of delivering a precision blast or scattering a hail of plasma bolts into a dispersed target. Their uniforms reflect the partly ceremonial role they have within the society of the Freeborn. Their clothing and armour carries the colors and emblems of the families to which they belong. Their uniforms mount reflex armour generators which extend to the long impact cloaks worn by each Vardinari, a combination of protective fields that is especially effective at the close ranged combat at which the Vardinari excel.

Contains the following metal models:
* 1 Vardanari leader with plasma carbine, X-sling, reflex armour, and impact cloak
* 5 Vardanari Guard with plasma carbine, X-sling, reflex armour, and impact cloak
* 1 Freeborn Spotter Drone

1-WGAFRB4 Priestley, Rick BEYOND THE GATES OF ANTARES: Freeborn Household Squad (Domari) The Freeborn are the traders, raiders, explorers and the ultimate go-betweens of Antarean space. The Freeborn are divided into hundreds of independent space-borne Vardos, each ruled over by a noble family. These rulers are the first amongst an aristocracy that vies for power, riches and influence within their own society as well as amongst the multitudinous civilizations around them.

Of the many commodities in which the Freeborn trade, the most famous of all are mercenaries. The opportunity to fight as mercenaries represents a long and profitable tradition amongst the ordinary people of the Vardo. To many worlds of Antarean space they are little more than pirates: to others they are saviors and liberators. When called upon they flock to join the ranks. Many a Freeborn family fortune has been built upon the plunder of war and the rewards of victory.

Domari - or Household troops - make up the bulk of the Freeborn forces. They are recruited amongst the lower orders of free citizens. Troopers are often equipped at their own expense, or that of their family, so the appearance and quality of their clothing and weaponry can vary. Reflex armour fields are embedded into a body-hugging combat undersuit. Other clothing is characteristically styled to be loose and flowing - a fashion that is universally favoured amongst the Freeborn.

The majority of troopers carry mag weapons because they are practical and durable. Squads also have an X-launcher capable of hurling explosive shot to dislodge enemies from cover.

Contains the following metal models:
* 1 Household leader with mag pistol
* 4 Household Troopers with mag guns
* 1 Household trooper with micro X-launcher
* 1 Spotter Drone

1-WGAFRB5 Priestley, Rick BEYOND THE GATES OF ANTARES: Freeborn Mhagris Feral Squad The Freeborn are great merchants, traveling between worlds and civilizations, exploring for new worlds and races, and always looking out for new opportunities to rise in wealth and power amongst the peoples of Antarean space. And power itself is a commodity that they are more than willing to trade!

The Freeborn can supply weapons and technology to those who have need of it - or complete armies and fleets if the price is right! From a small continent of fighters to vast hordes - the Freeborn can facilitate the dreams of any would-be conqueror, or perhaps fulfill the desperate need of those faced with annihilation by forces beyond their power to resist.

To ensure a continuous supply of troops the Freeborn recruit savages from feral, degenerate or primitive worlds before training and equipping them ready for sale to the customer.

The Feral squad is typical of these war-like savages. They are armed with relatively simple and cheaply made mag weapons that spray splinters of metal at their target. Each squad includes a magnetic X-launcher, which can hurl shot over the heads of enemies and drive targets from cover.

Feral troops wear a version of the typical Freeborn undersuit. In their case this often a second-hand or surplus example, and many troopers cut down their suits to afford more freedom of movement. It is very common for these degenerates to wear tribal marking, warpaint, or primitive decorations that hark back to their savage origins.

Contains the following metal models:
* 1 Feral leader with mag gun
* 4 Feral Fighters with mag guns
* 1 Feral Fighters with micro X-launcher
* 1 Beyond the Gates of Antares Orders Dice 1 vol, 6 pgs 2015 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-WGATEM1 Priestley, Rick BEYOND THE GATES OF ANTARES: Templates These great templates are made in a clear blue plastic and allow you to show a variety of things on the battlefield. The round blast area effect (or Shot template as it's known in Antares) is fairly obvious, and will be familiar to experienced wargamers. however the sprue is packed with a wide variety of templates - all of which are used to represent the effect of various drones and munitions in the game. Our particular favorite is the large Batter Drone Shield template.

Ammunition comes in many different forms, except for Net shots, munitions designed to work with larger overhead firing launchers make use of a marker rather than the usual blast template. Markers are used to represent where a special munitions shot has landed, and are left in place and can continue to exert their influence during the course of the battle. These rather handy markers can replace the paper examples provided at the back of the Beyond the Gates of Antares rule book. 1 vol, 1 pgs 2015 UK, WARLORD GAMES

March 1947. As Europe emerged from the worst winter in living memory the Soviet war machine is replenished and ready for action. 1946 was not the greatest year for The Motherland, although the German invaders were repulsed in their efforts to invade. After reverses before the winter set in, the Soviet war machine is now ready to roll west and crush the German foes before them.

The tireless efforts of brave Soviet scientists have meant the technology of the enemy is now available against them. The Cossack walker is fast and carries a heavy cannon, able to defeat it's recce counterparts at distance, and the new Heavy Infantry suits can tear apart infantry or vehicles with equal ease.

More fearsome is the sonic pulse cannon that has been fitted to the trusty T-34 medium tank - no target is safe from its effects. The Germans may have prepared themselves over the harsh winter but they face a relentless juggernaut as the spring thaws begin. 1 vol, 1 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

Rift-tech was rapidly used in the development of heavy armour for the Wehrmacht to ensure casualties in intense operations were kept to a minimum. One of the first nations to introduce heavy personal armour, it is effective and provided a much needed boost to the German war effort when first deployed. Other nations have copied the principles, often to better effect, but the heavy infantry remain a potent force on the battlefield. 1 vol, 8 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

The Fallschirmjager, re-fitted with state-of-the-art Falcon armor, are far more agile than their predecessors. More expensive to produce, but far more effective, they are popular troops.

Quick and resilient, these troops are ideal objective grabbers and shock-troops. They keep up with, and even outpace, most vehicles. Without the hindrance of terrain you can guarantee they can get to their target double-time. Equipped with assault rifles, they can pack a punch and wipe out those bothersome rear-area units with ease. 1 vol, 8 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-452210601 Warlord Games, Clockwork Goblin KONFLIKT '47: British Armored Infantry The pack contains eight 28mm figures.

As most nations began adopting heavily-armored infantry, the British took a more extreme view. With automatons providing close fire support to the infantry, it was decided that any armored troops should be capable of providing a punch beyond that of current infantry. Therefore the British developed the Galahad Armoured Suits, intended to overwhelm opposition strongpoints. Although limited in number, careful and considered use has meant they have a growing and largely victorious reputation.

Resilient and tough, a squad will normally consist of 1 NCO and 3 to 7 men. 1 vol, 8 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

In a rush to keep up with their foes, Soviet infantry armor was developed quickly and put into use not long after their rivals. Cumbersome and bulky, the Soviet suits lack subtlety, but their effectiveness is not disputed. Unlike other nations, the Soviet heavy infantry is considered more of an anti-vehicle unit.

Slow but resilient tank hunters, squads usually consist of an NCO and 4 to 9 men, 4 of which can replace their assault weapon with a dual weapon pack! 1 vol, 8 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-452210802 Warlord Games, Clockwork Goblin KONFLIKT '47: Soviet Daughters of the Motherland Using a low level of DNA enhancement through their Rift-tech program, the Soviet Union has created an all-female, propaganda-driven elite unit. 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. Their battlefield successes may well see them deployed in broader roles as the war progresses.

1-452210803 Warlord Games, Clockwork Goblin KONFLIKT '47: Soviet Ursus Infantry Box contains 3 metal infantry. Requires assembly.

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

1-452410403 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

Through a combination of espionage, scientific exploitation of prisoners, and defecting scientists, the Soviet Union gained substantial knowledge of the German super-soldier and gene-splicing programs and produced its own versions of DNA enhanced soldiers. In an effort to make soldiers immune to the cold, a method of making monsters out of men was discovered. With a form of anti-freeze in their veins, these 'ghouls' are immune to cold and fire and have a freezing touch that can cause immediate damage.

These fast fanatical nightmarish creatures can cause havoc in amongst your enemies lines, move up fast (don't worry about flame weapons as they're immune) to take advantage of their combat prowess! 1 vol, 5 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-11220 Coyle, Harold TEAM YANKEE: A Novel of World War III - Revised & Expanded Edition This revised and updated edition of the classic Cold War novel Team Yankee reminds us once again what might have occurred had the United States and its Allies taken on the Russians in Europe, had cooler geopolitical heads not prevailed. The narrative is more flowing and sounds more like a story than a National Training Center after action review. And also since the Cold War ended the author has been able to firm up a lot of stuff about Soviet weapons/capability that he was sort of speculating about when he wrote the original back in the 1980s

For 45 years after World War II, East and West stood on the brink of war. During those years, however, the Allies beefed up their ground capability, while the Soviets increased their air capability, even as the new jet and missile age began (thanks much to captured German scientists on both sides). The focal point of conflict remained in central Germany-specifically the flat plains of the Fulda Gap-through which the Russians could pour all the way to the Channel if the Allies proved unprepared (or unable) to stop them.

Team Yankee posits a conflict that never happened, but which very well might have, and for which both sides prepared for decades. This former New York Times bestseller by Harold Coyle, now revised and expanded, presents a glimpse of what it would have been like for the Allied soldiers who would have had to meet a relentless onslaught of Soviet and Warsaw Pact divisions. 1 vol, 336 pgs 2016 US, CASEMATE PUBLISHING

1-726514 Scarrow, Simon BRITANNIA Simon Scarrow's veteran Roman soldier heroes face a cunning and relentless enemy in Britannia, the unforgettable fourteenth novel in the bestselling Eagles of the Empire series. Roman Britain, AD 52.

The western tribes prepare to make a stand. But can they match the discipline and courage of the legionaries? Wounded Centurion Macro remains behind in charge of the fort as Prefect Cato leads an invasion deep into the hills. Cato's mission: to cement Rome's triumph over the natives by crushing the Druid stronghold. But with winter drawing in, the terrain is barely passable through icy rain and snowstorms.

When Macro's patrols report that the natives in the vicinity of the garrison are thinning out, a terrible suspicion takes shape in the battle-scarred soldier's mind. Has the acting Governor, Legate Quintatus, underestimated the enemy? If there is a sophisticated and deadly plan afoot, it's Cato and his men who will pay the price. Includes maps and charts. 1 vol, 352 pgs 2015 UK, HEADLINE BOOKS

1-FGVP04 Frostgrave Barbarians 28mm Miniatures Twenty multi-part Barbarian figures, designed to be used in Frostgrave, the Fantasy Skirmish Game.

In The Forgotten Pacts supplement for Frostgrave, players lead their warbands into the northern reaches of the city, exploring the ruined temples of the Frozen City to search for the lost secrets of evocation - the art of summoning demons. While the lure of such knowledge is great, few wizards have ventured into this region as it is overrun by barbaric northern tribesmen who have descended from the hills in their own search for treasure. Marking themselves with demonic sigils, many of these barbarians have aligned with ancient powers discovered amongst the temples.

This box set of hard plastic figures allows you to build 20 different Barbarians to play in the game Frostgrave. To help you design the perfect Barbarian warband, the box set contains 20 bodies, loads of weapon/ arm variants, 40 heads and all sorts of Barbaric equipment. No two warbands should ever be the same!

Plus, the Barbarians are compatible with the Frostgrave Soldiers and Frostgrave Cultists, giving you even more potential for conversions.

28mm sized plastic figures, supplied unpainted. Figures require assembly with glue.

Naval campaigns are also discussed, with the example of a semi historical-naval campaign around Korea in 1918 with China and Korea facing Russia and Japan.

1-209750 Chamberlaine, Major William edited by John Curry The Coast Artillery War Game (1916) Early Naval Wargaming Chamberlin's Coast Artillery Wargame (1916) was designed to train the coastal defence batteries of the United States in the procedures necessary to direct fire. It was a derivative of the better known Fred Jane Naval Wargame. The foreword is written by Al Nofi.

The game was played over a large floor based model of a harbor. The players looked down on this area from cubicals at the back of the room. From there, they could practice identifying ships, locating the enemy and giving appropriate fire control orders.

The book has notes on locations of fortifications, batteries, reserve ammunition and tactical use of searchlights. It gives an example of planning of an assault on coastal batteries and how they should be used in defence. One of the key considerations is knowing when to hold one's fire to avoid giving away batteries locations prior to the main attack.

The chapters on key topics such as estimating the situation are invaluable notes for the keen naval wargamer of the big gun era.

The Coast Artillery War Game is a game, but it implies a knowledge of the Fred Jane War Game and uses the ship plans from the classic Jane's Fighting Ships series.

1-209760 Curry, John and others The Discovering Wargames Series and Bill Lamming's Medieval Campaign Rules: Early Wargaming Rules Volume 5 John Tunstill, Arthur Taylor and Bill Lamming were some of the early wargamers who through their enthusiasm, knowledge and writing helped turn miniature wargaming into a worldwide hobby.

This work includes three books:

John Tunstill's Discovering Wargames- published by Shire Books.

Arthur Taylor's Rules for Wargaming - published by Shire Books.

Bill Lamming's tremendously popular Medieval Campaign and Battle Rules.

Between these authors, they wrote a large range of wargaming rules, from ancient to WW1 Air warfare. Tunstill's work was an introduction to the hobby and the rules were introduced period by period throughout the whole book. Taylor assumed the reader was already familiar with wargaming and so included no less than 8 sets of rules in just 68 pages. The Lamming campaign rules were ahead of their time and allowed the creation of a medieval world to run detailed wargaming campaigns.

All three of these works were widely read in the early 1970's, but now the originals are starting to disintegrate and a new publication is needed to preserve these key works.

1-1909312 Drewienkiewicz, J WARGAMING IN HISTORY Vol. 12: KONIGGRATZ Fully illustrated throughout with color photos, maps, and full orders of battle. Examines the Battle of Koniggratz on 3rd July 1866, where the Prussians inflicted a devastating defeat on the Austrians, effectively ending the Seven Weeks War in one day and establishing Prussia in the front rank of European Powers.

Analyses the battle in great detail, and then describes a wargame of the entire battle on one board, as well as wargaming three key areas of the battle: The Holawald, where the Prussians were checked; Problus, where Austria's Saxon allies hung on, and the Swiepwald, where disobedient Austrian commanders threw away a quarter of the army's strength, thereby losing the battle.

Examines a plausible 'What If' alternative battle on the Austrian right, which could have avoided disaster, had the commanders followed their orders. It questions the received wisdom on the causes of the defeat and offers the performance of the key personalities. The book includes photos of the 150th Anniversary Re-enactment of the battle. 1 vol, 204 pgs 2016 CAMBRIDGE, KEN TROTMAN

1-17650 Featherstone, Donald F., edited by John Curry WAR GAMES THROUGH THE AGES: Volume # 1 - 3000BC-1500AD Wargames through the Ages was first published to fill a gap in literature of the hobby of wargaming. It was a one-volume summary of ancient and medieval warfare.

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 in the ancient and medieval period. Each period of warfare was considered and details given of the soldiers themselves, their dress, arms and equipment, leaders, tactics and their style of fighting.

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.

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 battle uniforms add much to the attractiveness of this reprinted book. 1 vol, 279 pgs 2016 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

1-973012 Latham, Mark THE CTHULHU CAMPAIGNS: Ancient Rome Rome, the greatest empire the world has ever known, limitless in breadth and power, magnificent in its glory! But something evil, ancient and unknowable gnaws at the heart of the empire. Dark gods, trapped for centuries in thrice-warded tombs, have been disturbed by Roman plunderers. A secret war is fought daily between those who would harness this strange power for themselves, and those who fear it signals the very end of the empire.

Across the sea, roused from eternal slumber by a world awash with war, by omens and pagan slaughter, a Great Old One waits for the way to be opened. A cosmic terror that man was not meant to know. Those who know its name tremble, and only the very brave-or very foolish-incant it for their own ends. They whisper it in darkness; they cry it from atop blasted hills; they scream it to the raging oceans: 'Cthulhu.' 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-212490 Priestley, Rick and Lambshead, John Tabletop Wargames - A Designers' and Writers' Handbook Unlike chess or backgammon, tabletop wargames have no single, accepted set of rules. Most wargamers at some point have had a go at writing their own rules and virtually all have modified commercially available sets to better suit their idea of the ideal game or to adapt favorite rules to a different historical period or setting. But many who try soon find that writing a coherent set of rules is harder than they thought, while tweaking one part of an existing set can often have unforeseen consequences for the game as a whole. Now, at last, help is at hand. 120 integrated color illustrations.

Veteran gamer and rules writer John Lambshead has teamed up with the legendary Rick Priestley, creator of Games Workshop's phenomenally successful Warhammer system, to create this essential guide for any would-be wargame designer or tinkerer. Rick and John give excellent advice on deciding what you want from a wargame and balancing 'realism' (be it in a historical or a fantasy/sci-fi context) with playability. They discuss the relative merits of various mechanisms (cards, dice, tables) then discuss how to select and combine these to handle the various essential game elements of turn sequences, combat resolution, morale etc to create a rewarding and playable game that suits your tastes and requirements

1-935075 Various WARGAMES SOLDIERS & STRATEGY: #75 The theme of this issue is 'Great Leaders of the 17th Century.' In particular, WS&S 75 will be looking at Continental Europe during this time, with attention paid to the Wars of Religion, the Netherlands' bid to be free of Spanish rule, and the conflict in Germany. Behind many of these struggles were powerful and charismatic figures, such as King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden and Maurice of Nassau. These men not only played an important role in nation building, but were also great military innovators and reformers: much of their success came from their ability to lead men effectively and utilize armies in new ways.

For those not interested in 17th Century Europe, there are plenty of interesting non-theme articles as well. Perhaps most importantly, this issue contains the results of our Great Wargaming Survey, with lots of analysis (both graphical and otherwise). If you haven't been following along with the Great Wargaming Survey, don't forget to check out the roundup on our website. Besides the survey, other articles include a linked campaign for the Medieval Danish invasion of Gotland, a bite-size recreation of Magnesia, tips for tarting up pre-made terrain boards, and much, much more. 1 vol, 84 pgs 2014 NETHERLANDS, KARWANSARAY

1-198161 PIKE & SHOTTE: The Devil's Playground Supplement The Thirty Years War was a series of conflicts that ravaged large areas of Europe, especially the German provinces, from 1618 to 1648. These conflicts centered on the Habsburg Holy Roman Emperors, Ferdinand II and Ferdinand III, and their opponents. Although viewed by many as a religious war between Catholic and Protestant nations, its roots and causes were also politically motivated. The combination of religious fervor and the political ambition of the European superpowers were to pit vast armies and mighty leaders against each other. The devastation caused by decades of fighting had truly turned Europe into the 'Devil's Playground'.

This supplement for Pike & Shotte describes the history, armies, personalities and battles of the Thirty Years War. Included are scenarios based on some of the famous battles and army lists for the main protagonists.

A copy of the Pike & Shotte rulebook is required to use this supplement.

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 2075 UK, GREAT ESCAPE GAMES

1-210270 IRON CROSS: WWII Wargaming in Miniature (For 15mm, 20mm, and 28mm Scales) Iron Cross uses a dynamic activation system which means players are always involved and constantly faced with tactical decisions. Playable in any scale, forces represent formations from company to battalion size. This book contains the rules, scenarios, and orders of battle for German, US, British and Soviet forces from 1944-45 in the European theater of operations.

A typical Iron Cross force battle pits forces from company to battalion size against each other. In
attacker vs defender scenarios, there is a sizable disparity.

Iron Cross asserts it is compact, easy to learn, and has tons of decision making, tension, and tactical nuances. It says it is better than anything on this scale and gives you a game that feels like WWII and looks like WWII. It's a game that gamers can quickly pick up, without the extra padding in other WWII games to enable the player to concentrate on close quarters engagements between opposing forces of tanks and infantry. 1 vol, 32 pgs 2015 UK, GREAT ESCAPE GAMES

1-210890 GUNG-HO: US Marine Corps in the Pacific -- Flames of War The first book for Flames of War's foray into the Pacific Theater (PTO) looks at the long and distinguished history of the US Marine Corps, its involvement in the major engagements of the Pacific war and how you can field your own Marine Companies. The 50-page volume, full color as always, also gives you rules for Amphibious Assaults and a couple of new missions for using these rules, Island Landing and Atoll Landing, both similar but with subtle differences.

With the new missions, you've now got the opportunity to re-fight the island engagements that are the hallmark of the PTO. In fact, you've got suggested missions in the book to enable you (in conjunction with Banzai) to re-fight The Battle of Saipan and Operation Iceberg; the invasion of Okinawa.

The volume is full of historical information on the Marine Corps itself, from its inception in 1775 through to WWI and also its organization during WWII. There is information on the whole Marine campaign in the Pacific as well. Even if you're not a history buff, this makes for some interesting reading and is great background for anyone interesting in the Corps.

Gung Ho effectively allows you to field three different companies; a Marine Rifle Company, an Amphibian Tank Company and a Marine Tank Company. You have the option of fielding the units as either PTO companies, with corresponding points, or field them in any LW period and again, the corresponding points are listed. This, in my opinion, is a great addition to the book and means that you're not limited to simply running Marines against their Japanese counter-foes. You could look at all manner of different options in LW to pit the Corps against. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, BATTLEFRONT USA

1-210900 BANZAI: Imperial Japanese Forces in the Pacific -- Flames of War To compliment the release of Gung Ho, Battlefront is releasing Banzai to give those Marines someone to fight against. While the Japanese were introduced to Flames of War with the release of Rising Sun, this time they really have a more Pacific feel to them, despite the similarities in the companies available to you.

As with Gung Ho, there is a really great run-down of the Japanese campaigns in the Pacific starting with Pearl Harbor in 1941 right through to Okinawa and the ultimate defeat of the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy at the hands of the Americans.

The run-down of Japanese special rules is very comprehensive and fits well with the tactics that Japanese players are likely going to have to employ. Many of the rules have appeared in Rising Sun and they're here as well, including the Hell by Day, Paradise by Night rule that allows the Japanese to Always Attack at Dawn, which will make things difficult for the Marines.

In Banzai, you'll have the option to choose from four different company types. You've got the Hohei Chutai (Infantry Company), Sensha Rentai (Tank Regiment), Yosai Hohei Chutai (Fortified Infantry Company) and the Ka-Mi Sensha Chutai (Ka-Mi Amphibious Tank Company). 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, BATTLEFRONT USA

Choose from hard-nosed Gangsters, two-bit gangs of Moonshiners, unswerving Prohibition Agents, or bright-eyed squads of Police officers. Campaigns in The Chicago Way represent a season of violent activity as the 'good guys' and 'bad guys' tussle for control of their patch against rival bootleggers, or to sweep the streets clean of the criminal fraternity.

The Chicago Way is the 28mm skirmish game in Prohibition era United States from Great Escape Games. With an accompanying range of 28mm miniatures, vehicles and pre-painted buildings, players can gun down the opposition as they vie for control of the city. The Chicago Way rule book provides all the rules to play, four competing factions, and a campaign system in which your characters gain skills and your boss exerts his influence over his rivals.

Players can play GBN using any scale from 6mm all the way up to 28mm miniatures and there are guidelines for gaming in the various scales. Units represent infantry regiments, cavalry regiments, artillery batteries and skirmish battalions and screens.

Players take on the role of army or corps commanders. Each player usually commanding around four to five divisions, with each division composed of between two to seven units. Thus the average size of a game is a corps and assets depending on which nation you are using.

The game is driven by two important mechanisms: command initiative and response. Inspired by the other game we publish - the initiative system was adopted from Koenig Krieg.

Grand Battles Napoleon is definitely not a you-go-I-go game. It is very important that players understand the function of initiative in this set of rules as it governs most of the actions that occur during a turn. Actions are not sequential, neither are they simultaneous. Instead commanders test initiative several times during the turn. The player who wins the initiative test may activate one of his divisions or force his opponent to activate one of their divisions instead. Both players roll for initiative round after round until all units on both sides have had a chance to act. In this way each player is kept 'in the game' at all times, with each general tied to their initiative, command ability and the important decision to strike now or force their opponent to act instead!

Response is divided between command response and unit response. Commanders need to perform response tests if they wish to perform sweeping grand tactical orders, maintain command control should they find themselves outside command range of their corps, wing or army general or to steady the troops from becoming demoralized as casualties in the division mount.

Unit response allows your troops to act out of turn and react to movement within their zone of control or when being charged. So that even within the other player's activation the non acting player is never really out of the game. Includes 10 scenarios and rules for running tournaments and linked campaigns. 1 vol, 144 pgs 2016 UK, NORTH STAR

The game is designed to play out in about two hours after set-up, and gives a large battle feel.

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 2017 UK, STUDIO CAPTAIN

1-209770 Barker, Phil edited by John Curry Phil Barker's Napoleonic Wargaming Rules 1685-1845(1979) First published in 1971, with a second edition in 1979, these rules were revolutionary for their time. They were written to allow wargamers to replay even the largest battles from the horse and musket era 1685-1845. This popular set of rules were in use primarily for Seven Years War and the Napoleonic Wars for over 25 years. The approximate ratio was 1 figure representing 40-50 men. This scale made it feasible to recreate historical battles upon the table top at the grand tactical level. Wargamers used them for Marlborough's battles, the Highland rebellions, the battles of Frederick the Great, in addition to the Seven Years War, the War of American Independence, campaigns in India, the French Revolutionary Wars and Napoleonic Wars. They rules included three pages of specimen army lists for Marlburian era, the Seven Years War and the early Indian Wars 1 vol, 63 pgs 2012 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

1-211780 Barler, Phil HORSE FOOT AND GUNS: Version 1.1 A set of quick-play, army-level wargames rules for large land battles for the period 1701-1914. This version 1.1 is a slight revision of the version 1.0 written about ten years ago by Phil Barker and for many years available as a free download.

It is primarily intended for games between two players each controlling a complete army against its historical opponents using a minimum number of figures on a small table. The series' inspirations are that no current rules can cope with more than one corps per player; that few of the many wars of the period except the Napoleonic and American Civil Wars are covered by existing rule sets; and that great interest is being shown in smaller model scales for which casualty removal is impractical.

Later it will be followed by HFG Version 2.0 which will extend the period to 1925 as well as detailed companion sets, initially 'Tricorne & Musket' covering 1701-1790, 'Shako and Bayonet' for 1791-1850, and 'Kepi & Rifle' for 1851-1914. 1 vol, 72 pgs 2016 UK, SUE LAFLIN

1-210672 Bollands, Wayne WILD GEESE: Living on the Front Line - Post-1945 Rules for Mercenary Units The life of a mercenary depends upon the accounts you read or your approach to the topic. On one level, mercenary life can seem a romantic adventure, where often noble Soldiers of Fortune venture forth to save lives, right wrongs and vanquish the evil within our world. On another, mercenary life can appear fraught with danger, hardship and eventual death, with little or no support from uncaring employers.

The truth is, the reality can be seen as a blend of these and many other factors. What is known is that mercenaries in one form or another have been instrumental in toppling governments, creating nations and preserving peace / ensuring war across the globe, especially during the post-1945 period and up until the modern day.

Wild Geese is a skirmish level game using suitable miniatures from 15 to 28mm size, plus buildings, vehicles and other items that are scaled to fit. Games can represent one-off encounters or be a part of a series of battles, perhaps even a narrative campaign where the units you and your fellow gamers come up with develop over time.

1-196815 Bushel, Alexandre SAGA: The Age of the Wolf (Campaign Book) Age of the Wolf (AoW) is specifically aimed at the Viking period so doesn't include C&C warbands. Indeed AoW splits warbands into Eastern and Western factions. Pagan Rus are an Eastern faction so will never meet up with the Strathclyde Welsh for example (phew!). But it also means that the C&C rules for priests and most Swords for Hire (SfH) units are not included, which is a shame. The specific way that warbands are developed means that it may be difficult to include priests. I think a workaround may be to consider priests as a hearthguard unit and introduce them using the post battle fate table. We'll see what this means later. Warlord priests would require extra tinkering to fit, but I think could be done.

Campaigns are split into seasons. The rules recommend six seasons, but any number could be played. At the beginning of each campaign season, warlords decide whether they will Raid (acquire wealth), Campaign (acquire land), or Defend (acquire reputation). If raiding or campaigning, players also select who they will target. By cross referencing each players campaign actions on a chart, different types of battle are generated: raids, invasions, encounters, ambushes, or pitched battles. Each type of battle is accompanied by another chart that offers three different scenarios.

Also includes five new non-campaign scenarios: Forest Road Ambush, Harry & Burn, The Burgh, Scouts, and The Hazel Wands. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2013 UK, NORTH STAR

Mortibris the Necromancer cursed and spat in the dust as he saw the host which awaited them. Leave it to the Elves to meddle in matters which did not concern them. With the Dwarfs and possibly the Basileans soon to be at his back, he could ill-afford further distractions here. No matter. The Elves facing him had no idea of the power he could unleash. Not even the blighted maiden at their head, whose essence he recognized readily enough. Madriga!

1-205981 Elliot, Ged IN THE GRANDEST MANNER COMPANION: The 1809 Danube Campaign from the Situation Room This publication is part of a 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 Companion, you do not require any specific set of rules, although they are written with ITGM in mind. Indeed, the Companion lends itself to being scaled in virtually any way the reader wishes, for use with a plethora of rule sets.

The scenarios are based on four main battles from the Danube Campaign of 1809 between the French, commanded by Napoleon, and the Austrians, commanded by Archduke Charles. In order, the battles are Abensberg, Eckmuhl, Aspern-Essling, and Wagram. Each scenario has a map, full OB, and any special rules. Typical dispositions are also used to illustrate the scenarios.

Also, time is spent on exploring the intricacies of the rules which the Companions supports. In this edition, the focus is on the game setup, focusing on the work going into setting up any game. After set up, the morale system is examined in depth, exploring the troop definitions that can enable as much variation as wanted or indeed warranted by any scenario. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2015 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-210992 Flaherty, C. NAPOLEONIC: Napoleonic Wars Foraging, Insurrection, Marauders, Bakeries, Convoy & Encampment Wargaming This book introduces Volume Two of Supplementary Wargaming Rules, with 25-28mm scale miniature figures and models. This book follows from the 2016 Partizan Press' Universal Wargames Rules Supplement 1: Napoleonic Small Siege, River Ship, Gunboat & Pontooning. Written to fit within the historical rules systems currently popular in the wargaming community, this book covers scenarios such as peasant insurrection and soldier-marauders.

This book covers several additional aspects of Napoleonic period warfare including foraging, field bakeries; convoy supply trains; river convoys; magazines; and, encampments. This volume is about wargaming the rear-echelon areas of Napoleonic armies, which were ongoing battlegrounds outside the larger scale battles, which usually dominate conventional wargaming.

The supplementary rules have been written to develop a range of possible wargaming scenarios, with historical backgrounds as examples, and some rules based on these events. These are intended to include within larger games, or as small roll-plays.

The book includes a end-section for updated information on several topics originally covered in the 2016 UWRS1 including Turkish river gunboats; Napoleon's 1809 swinging pontoon bridge; Napoleon's pile-driving engines; Napoleonic era use of the 18-pounder field gun; and Napoleonic armored floating batteries, with new rules. 1 vol, 72 pgs 2016 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-210320 Foss, Thomas GALLEYS GUNS AND GLORY Table top naval battles with fleets of cannon packing oared vessels covering roughly 1500-1650 for oared naval actions ranging in scale from small corsair raids of a few ships to epic grand battle re-fights such as Lepanto. The rules are designed to work at 'convention level', which means you can learn the rules in less than five minutes, get into action -- making a couple of novice moves or spectacular maneuvers and come away with a story or two to tell at the bar.

Management of each ship and its crew are visual and easy to account for as the crew and damage to the ship are represented on the models- leaving little to no paperwork!

Although trying to capture the essence of the period and referencing strongly the doctrines and tactics of the time, the rules claim no absolute historical accuracy, other than like the galleys of yore are made of wood and are adorned with such opulent awnings, lanterns, flags, and bulwark side trim that would make the Sultan's harem jealous.

1-212160 Hale, Chris KONFLIKT '47: Rules Konflikt '47 is set in a world very much like ours. In fact, its history is indistinguishable from our own until 1943 when the Manhattan Project's test of a prototype nuclear device opened a rift in the fabric of space. When the Fat Boy atomic bomb was dropped on Dresden on 12 March 1944, it created a second rift, and German scientists quickly set to work studying it.

Both rifts began to relay signals from unknown sources. These signals were largely indecipherable, but occasionally one would convey a formula or scientific theory that permitted huge technological advances. Both the US and Germany were reluctant to share these advances with their allies, and in May 1944, Stalin declared the US to be an enemy of the Motherland.

Fully compatible with the incredibly popular Bolt Action rules, this standalone rulebook takes the war to a completely new level. Players are given everything they need to field forces incorporating the incredible weapons and technologies made possible by the rift signals, and to engage in tabletop battles for supremacy and survival. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-210670 Hannam, Mark , Sparkes Matthew and Bradford, Mike WINTER OF '79 - LIVING ON THE FRONT LINE: Civil War in the Disunited Kingdom Rules represent an alternative history of the late 1970s and early 1980s. In this vision, the 'Establishment' takes control of the legitimate government and the subsequent 'crackdown' is faced with spontaneous popular resistance led by trade union, liberal and left-wing elements, which boils over into civil war. Provides you with the context and motivation for fighting games based upon a premise of DPM vs Donkey Jacket, SLR vs Armalite, Brit against Brit, in the late seventies and early eighties.

VBCW this is not! No tea and hand grenades Vicar. But there is no reason you can't have colorful private armies, trade union and left-wing militias, local defense leagues, new military and paramilitary formations, each with their own identity defined by your choice of uniforms, camo, weapons, badges and personalities. Equally the forces on your tabletop can simply be armed civilians vs military, helmets vs berets, or maroon vs green. International volunteers? Foreign assistance? Your call.

The rules use an integrated turn system to allow a commander to position ships to go in and ram without being rammed in return, or to employ feints and traps to tempt the enemy out of position and leave his ships vulnerable to a follow-up strike. Includes data for ships throughout the period, rules for famous admirals, historical scenarios, a campaign system, and a brief historical summary.

1-212140 Latham, Mark BROKEN LEGIONS: Fantasy Skirmish Wargames in the Roman Empire Broken Legions is a set of fantasy skirmish rules for a war unknown to history, fought in the shadows of the Roman Empire. Various factions recruit small warbands to fight in tight, scenario-driven battles that could secure the mystical power to defend - or crush - Rome. A points system allows factions to easily build a warband, and mercenaries and free agents may also be hired to bolster a force. Heroes and leaders may possess a range of skills, traits and magical abilities, but a henchman's blade can be just as sharp, and a campaign can see even the lowliest henchman become a hero of renown. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-212860 Latham, Mark Chosen Men - Military Skirmish Games in the Napoleonic Wars Chosen Men is a set of fast-action skirmish rules detailing the bloody skirmishes between light troops in the Napoleonic Wars. The primary focus of the game is on soldiers and NCOs in light 'flank' companies, as they scout ahead of larger forces and take part in man-to-man actions against enemy skirmishers.

Although the game allows for the formation of accurately sized companies of light infantry and cavalry if you wish, these formations are broken down into small groups of up to a dozen men. For the most part, officers are not swashbuckling super-heroes, but staunch commanders who rally and direct their men to achieve the battlefield objectives. Although the game uses an alternating action turn sequence, officers can use their influence on multiple units at the same time in an effort to steal the initiative. With all rolls resolved using standard 6-sided dice, this game combines a classic wargaming feel with modern wargame mechanics.

1-210190 Lewis, Mark SWORD AND SPEAR: 2nd Edition Rules Rules for large battles in the Ancients and Medieval period. They are suitable for any scale figures and any basing standard. The only requirement is that figures are organized into units of equal frontage. A typical game consists of about 12 units on each side and games take around 2 - 3 hours. The rules are designed from a top-down perspective, focusing on outcomes rather than detail.

Each turn is split into phases, where players each receive a number of command dice, which are rolled and then used to activate their units. The number shown on each dice determines which units it can activate (with better quality units being easier to activate), what the unit can do when activated, and the numbers also determine the activation sequence. Certain dice also give bonuses to combat, movement distance, or shooting range. So there is a lot to think about, and allocating the command dice well is the key to success (although rolling lots of sixes helps as well!).

In each phase command dice are allocated, then units are activated in order. When a unit is activated it does everything - movement, shooting, and melee combat. So there is no turn sequence to remember and work through. A unit cannot be activated more than once in a turn, and typically most, but not all, units can be activated in a turn (although this depends on the quality of the units involved, so a horde of poor quality troops will not have so many units activated each turn.)

Each unit has a type (for example cavalry), a discipline rating (depending on the quality of the unit) and a strength rating. The strength depends on the unit type (for example cavalry are strength 3) and determines both the number of dice rolled in combat and the number of hits required to rout the unit. Many units will also have some specific weapons or characteristics such as Bows, Armoured, Spearmen or Impact, although an average level of protection and offensive ability is assumed, so for example, a unit of cavalry may simply be: Cavalry D4 S3.

The rules are relatively straightforward, and there are no 'to-hit' tables, charts, or lists of dice roll modifiers. They can be played using only the one sided playsheet with very little reference to the rulebook after the first couple of games.

Missile shooting and melee combat use the same mechanics, with both units (all combat is one unit vs one unit) rolling a number of dice, lining the dice up highest to lowest and comparing. Each lost dice roll may result in a hit, which represents a combination of actual casualties, cohesion and morale loss. Hits can be rallied, but when the number of hits equals the strength of a unit it is removed as routed.

The number of dice rolled by each in combat is equal to the strength of the unit, and may be modified upwards if the unit has impetus, and also according to a very short list of situations which give a unit extra combat dice (for example being uphill or having extra friendly units in contact with the enemy).

There is not as much rock-paper-scissors in these rules as in many other ancients / medieval games, but it does appear in the mechanic for impetus. If a unit involved in a combat has a command dice allocated to it this phase, it may have impetus in the combat and will gain one (or sometimes more) extra dice. There is a list of situations where the unit does not get impetus (for example cavalry vs elephants, mounted vs spears). This creates differences in the way certain troop types interact together, and gives them strengths and weaknesses other than their two basic stats.

Each army has a number of leaders, which are important as units do not perform as well if they are out of command range and perform better with a general attached. Many of our playtest games have involved two players on each side, with each player having a command of around 7 - 10 units, but can include multiple players per side. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2013 UK, NORTH STAR

1-208941 McCullough, Joseph FROSTGRAVE: Thaw of the Lich Lord Signed copies by author.

This is a complete campaign for Frostgrave that will challenge both new and veteran players. Through a series of linked scenarios, players discover the existence of a new power in the Frozen City, one who was old when the great city was still young, and who saw both its rise and its disastrous fall.

Warbands will confront the Lich Lord's minions, race against his agents to seize possession of mysterious artifacts, and brave the perils of Frostgrave in search of his lair. Eventually, they will need to muster all their courage to venture into the depths of the city and face the Lich Lord himself. Not all wizards will seek to stop the Lich Lord, however, and full rules for giving into his corruption and following the dark road to becoming an undead lich are presented for those who crave power and immortality above all else.

While the campaign presents many new threats against which wizards and their warbands must test themselves, including an expanded bestiary, it also offers additional resources, such as new henchmen that can be recruited and unique magical treasures that can spell the difference between survival and oblivion. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

While the lure of such knowledge is great, few wizards have ventured into this region as it is overrun by barbaric northern tribesmen who have descended from the hills in their own search for treasure. Marking themselves with demonic sigils, many of these barbarians have aligned with ancient powers discovered amongst the temples.

1-210050 Mersey, Daniel DRAGON RAMPART: Fantasy Wargaming Rules Whether you're a nameless Dark Lord looking to conquer the known world, a Champion of Light holding out against the forces of evil, or a Northern barbarian facing claimants to a stolen throne, Dragon Rampant allows you to bring those battles to the tabletop.

Developed from the popular Lion Rampant system, Dragon Rampant is a standalone wargame that recreates the great battles of Fantasy fiction. Scenarios, army lists, and full rules for magic and monsters give players the opportunity to command unruly orc warbands, raise armies of the undead, campaign across an antediluvian world as the warchief of a barbarian tribe, or exploit the power of mighty creatures and extraordinary sorcery. An army usually consists of 6-8 units comprised of 6-12 individually based figures. These small units move and fight independently, assuming that they follow your orders rather than just doing their own thing. Command and control is just as important on the battlefield as the power of a troll chieftain or the magic of an archmage. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-212270 Mersey, Daniel THE MEN WHO WOULD BE KINGS: Colonial Wargaming Rules Set of rules designed for fighting historical or Hollywood-style colonial battles in the mid to late 19th Century, from the Indian Mutiny to the Boxer Rebellion.

Large scale colonial clashes tended to be one-sided affairs, but there are countless reports of brief, frantic skirmishes in every colonial war, where either side could be victorious, and these are the battles that The Men Who Would Be Kings seeks to recreate.

Although focusing on the British colonial wars against the Zulus, Maoris and others, these rules will also permit players to explore the empires of France, Germany, and other nations, as well as allowing for battles between rival native factions. Gameplay is very simple, and is driven by the quality of the officers leading your units, in the true spirit of Victorian derring-do and adventure, where larger than life characters such as the (real) Fred Burnaby and the (fictional) Harry Flashman led their troops to glory and medals or a horrible end at the point of a spear tip. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Start by creating your Officer - is he a natural leader raised from the ranks, the youngest son of a noble family, or an old veteran who has seen too many battles? As you campaign, your Officer will win honor and gain promotion, acquiring traits that may help lead his men to victory.

Before each skirmish, your Officer must raise his Company from a wide range of unit options - should he lean towards hard-hitting heavy cavalry or favor solid, defensively minded infantry? Companies are typically formed from six to eight units, each made up of either six or 12 figures, and quick, decisive, and dramatic games are the order of the day. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-202910 Teixeria, Ed NUTS! - Final Edition A light machine gun has part of your squad pinned down. Two of your men are wounded and screaming for help while one of your guys is 'hunkered down' behind that wall and isn't moving anytime soon. All hell's breaking loose and everyone is looking to you for the answer. Right about now you're wondering what the heck you've gotten yourself into?

Welcome to the world of NUTS!

NUTS! starts off in Europe '44 and is the first volume from Two Hour Wargames that will cover World War 2 in its entirety. All the countries, all the weapons, and all the theaters will be covered in subsequent volumes and free supplements.

NUTS! is different from other rules sets because we've developed NUTS! to be played solo or with all the players on the same side. Other games may say that but this game was made with this in mind yet still retains the ability to be played head to head. Now you can play with your friends and not against them! That is, unless you want to.

NUTS! generates your scenarios and provides a seamless campaign system that allows you to link them together where the results of one affects the results of the other. 1 vol, 84 pgs 2016 US, OMM PUBLISHING

1-211990 Tim Gow and Bertrand Plastique LITTLE COLD WARS: Wargaming the Cold War Using Toy Soldiers Book recreates battles from the era of the Cold War. Based on the original ideas of H.G. Wells, this book brings the original toy soldier rules up to date to recreate wars from the time of the Cold War onto the wargamer's table top or preferably, his lawn.

The rules grasp the essentials of Cold War combat; movement, close assault, direct fire, artillery and air support. They also include additional rules to cover the complexities of engineering, smoke and the wider air battle. They do so in a style reminiscent of Little Wars, just with tanks and aircraft. The book includes a full points system as well as sample army lists from Britain to Yugoslavia.

For those seeking greater complexity, there are optional rules to cover special forces, large battles, night fighting, and hidden movement. There are also five sample scenarios to help the new Cold War warrior get started. These rules are straightforward, but comprehensive toy soldier rules that allow the wargamer to experience the battles, actual and potential, from those days. 1 vol, 124 pgs 2012 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

1-210290 Woodfield, Craig EN GARDE! Swashbuckling Skirmish Wargames Rules En Garde! is a small-scale skirmish game based on the successful Ronin rules, in which small groups of warriors fight each other for honor or riches. Rather than just rolling a few dice, the rules allow players to make tactical decisions about how the models that they control will fight - offensively, defensively, or by applying special skills and abilities. En Garde! covers the conflicts of the 16th, 17th, and early 18th centuries, when black-powder weapons started to become common in battle but martial prowess still determined the outcome.

Play as Border Reivers, Conquistadors, Landsknechts, Aztecs, French Musketeers, Caribbean Pirates, and many more, in scenarios that evoke classic engagements of the genre. Simple campaign rules allow multiple scenarios to be played in sequence and permit warbands to develop over time.

An appendix is also included to provide brief rules for supernatural creatures of the period -- monsters, demons, revenants, and witches -- and new abilities and equipment to fight them. 1 vol, 0 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Traces their origins, including the horn-blowing Celtic and Roman cavalries of antiquity and the mounted Middle Eastern musicians whom European Crusaders encountered in the Holy Land. He describes the performance, musical selections, composition, and duties of American mounted bands that have served regular, militia, volunteer, and National Guard regiments in military and civil parades and concerts, in ceremonies, and on the battlefield.

Over time, the composition of the bands has changed-beginning with trumpets and drums and expanding to full-fledged concert bands on horseback. Woven throughout the book are often-surprising strands of American military history from the War of 1812 through the Civil War, action on the western frontier, and the two world wars. 1 vol, 264 pgs 2016 US, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS

1-211970 Hughes. James THE GATLING GUN NOTEBOOK: A Collection of Data and Illustrations Most everyone recognizes a Gatling Gun today, but when the science of 'machine guns' was in its infancy, each improvement in design or firepower was hailed in the press.

These news reports were usually illustrated with line drawings and these 100-plus-year-old drawings make up the body of this notebook on the Gatling Gun, from 1863 when it first appeared, to 1917, when the last US government manual was printed for the Gatling.

Covered: 10 makers in five countries and the Gatling Guns that 29 countries tested or used in some 25 different calibers. Carriages, feed devices, cartridges, manuals, and implements are also described or pictured herein. Sales, inspectors and issues, some by serial number, are detailed for many purchases.

For the technically minded, extracts from relevant United States patents are included. Listings of all Richard Jordan Gatling's American patents and those patents that 'improved' upon his designs are also included. Includes 175 b/w illustrations. 1 vol, 152 pgs 2000 US, A MOWBRAY PUBLISHERS

1-212760 Wilsey, Robert THE ITALIAN VETTERLI RIFLE: Development, Variants and History in Service This enhanced volume contains more than three times the content of the original, earlier work entitled The Italian Vetterli System, published by the Royal Armouries.

The Vetterli rifle was in service for over 40 years, developed as a long rifle, a short rifle, a cavalry and a police carbine, in single-shot form, and later adapted for a variety of magazine feeds as the Vetterli-Vitali, Vetterli-Bertoldo, and Vetterli-Ferracciu. The conversions from 10.35 mm to 6.5 mm calibres and subsequently to a .22 training carbine are also covered in detail. Also contains new information on the arms factories that manufactured them.

Includes the history and use of the weapon on active service in some of the less well-known campaigns in Europe and Africa including Ethiopia, Somaliland, Libya, Ireland, Russia, China, Turkey and the Spanish Civil War. This book will appeal to both the firearms collector and the military historian. The wealth of research and detail fills a gap in the history of early breech-loading military rifles. 1 vol, 168 pgs 2016 US, A MOWBRAY PUBLISHERS

This famous study has been the standard work on the Russian Napoleonic Army's uniforms. Stephen has concentrated upon the essential element of the book - the uniform plates. These have been made more useable by splitting into logical new plate sections, properly indexed for ease of identification, and all color shades translated in a special glossary of terms. The result is a spectacular, beautiful study of the principal uniforms of all arms, with 50 color plates as well as numerous additional text illustrations. 1 vol, 0 pgs 2016 CAMBRIDGE, KEN TROTMAN

1-212840 Smith, Digby THE UNIFORMS OF THE IMPERIAL GERMAN ARMY OF 1914 Some time ago Bob Marrion approached me to see if we might work together on this project, using his vast collection of contemporary photographs of German soldiers and equipment and his talents as an accomplished artist as a basis, coupled with my German linguistic knowledge and fearsome, two-finger computer-input skills. Unfortunately, Bob has since passed away, but his unique contribution has become a main feature of the book.

The Imperial German army of 1914 was a huge and complex organization, nowhere more so that in the fine detail of its uniforms. By use of the famous Ruhl books and other, similar contemporary publications, it is hoped that much of the mystery surrounding this topic will have been dispelled. The emphasis has been placed on the year of 1914 and the items worn at that time.

Just as in the British army, each regiment and corps had its own identity expressed in its cap, collar and shoulder title badges. Each regiment is listed, together with details of their shoulder straps and any battle honours or other distinctions worn on the helmet plates or other badges. Many of these details are then illustrated in the colour or half-tone plates and drawings.

The main body of this book is based on the 1905 `Rang-und Stammliste der deutschen Armee` by Bredow-Wedel, backed up by the excellent on-line collection of Verlyn L. Bryant`s 'Collar/Shoulder Tabs - Imperial' in the GDC Reference Library at www.GermanDaggers.com.

I am also grateful to Brigadier Charles Grant OBE who made available some of the late Doug Haggar`s colour plates of Imperial German cavalry
It is hoped that this book will open the door to many readers, into the fascinating history behind the imperial Prussian army of 1914, the proud regiments of which faded into history on 6th March 1919. 1 vol, 172 pgs 2016 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-210931 Veltze, Karl GERMAN PARATROOPERS: Volume 1 - Uniforms and Equipment 1936-1945 The books will be indispensable to collectors, uniform enthusiasts and military historians alike. This three-volume work is the most comprehensive and detailed study of the World War II German paratrooper to date, providing in-depth examinations of nearly every uniform item - including all models of jump smocks - and equipment used from the airborne forces' establishment in the mid-1930s to May 1945.

It also extensively covers specific insignia and various unique ephemera.

1-974022 Davies, Peter E 022 USN MCDONNELL DOUGLAS F-4 PHAMTOM II Originally designed as a carrier-borne long-range interceptor armed with radar-guided missiles and tasked with defense against missile-launching bombers, the Phantom II went on to establish itself as one of the most important multi-role fighter, attack and reconnaissance aircraft of the 20th century. Arguably the United States' most important aircraft in the Vietnam War, where it played the role of workhorse as well as being a deadly MiG interceptor, the Phantom was also a mainstay of Atlantic Fleet operations, intercepting Soviet bomber and reconnaissance aircraft and turning them away from the carrier groups at the height of the Cold War.

This book reveals the design and development history of the naval Phantom, its variants and the exported designs adopted by other NATO countries. Packed with illustrations, photographs and first-hand accounts, it provides a technical history of one of the most famous aircraft ever built. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975049 Grant, Neil 049 SA80 ASSAULT RIFLES Now the standard weapon for British soldiers across the globe, the SA80's early years were surrounded in controversy after a series of dismal performances. It was prone to jamming in desert conditions, had several flimsy parts that would often break after repeated use and had an incredibly sensitive magazine catch. When these issues came to light the SA80 was lambasted by the news, leading to the Ministry of Defense ordering an extensive modification program that dramatically improved reliability.

Combat accounts and in-depth analysis of the SA80's performance in Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Iraq guide the reader through its troubled life, while vivid artwork helps to illustrate the transformation it underwent; from an unreliable rifle disliked by the soldiers who used it to being one of the world's most innovative and accurate small arms. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975043 Loades, Mike 043 THE COMPOSITE BOW An ancient design, emerging from Central Asia in the second millennium BC, the composite bow was adopted by a staggering variety of cultures, from nomadic tribal peoples such as the Huns, Turks and Mongols, to mighty empires such as the Romans, Byzantines, Persians, Arabs and Chinese.

In this important study, an expert on Eastern military technology tells the story of this extraordinary piece of military hardware; how it was made and how various cultures developed differing tactics for using it. He explains why the composite bow achieved such stunning successes and how it endured as a weapon of choice for thousands of years. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975052 Pegler, Martin 052 COLT SINGLE-ACTION REVOLVERS In 1836, Samuel Colt changed the face of warfare with the production of the first of a series of iconic and influential single-action revolvers, including the .44-caliber Colt Walker and the seminal .45-caliber Colt Single Action Army, which remains in production today. These weapons shifted the role of the pistol from single-shot weapon of last resort to a practical and powerful sidearm that gave the user the ability to defend himself once his primary armament was discharged. It transformed cavalry tactics and relegated the sword to a largely ceremonial role in many armies.

Featuring full-color artwork, expert analysis and gripping first-hand accounts, this is the absorbing story of Colt's family of single-action revolvers, covering their origins, development, use and lasting impact on the modern world. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Employing first-hand accounts to show how tactical doctrines were successfully developed to overcome the weapon's inherent limitations, and exploring the use of the flintlock musket by individuals in irregular warfare, chiefly in North America, this volume offers a comprehensive analysis of the flintlock's lasting impact as the first truly universal soldier's weapon. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975046 Thompsom, Leroy 046 THE M3 GREASE GUN Influenced by the German MP 40 and the British Sten, the .45-caliber M3 'Grease Gun' served as the primary US submachine gun for almost a half-century. Designed to replace the expensive Thompson SMG, the M3 was issued to airborne troops and others during World War II thanks to its compact design with sliding wire stock.

An improved variant, the M3A1, was favored by armored crews right up to the beginning of the 1990s, seeing service in 1991's Operation Desert Storm. In Korea and Vietnam, reconnaissance troops and special-operations forces were at times armed with the M3A1 -- also available in a suppressed version -- and it was the first SMG issued to the US counter-terrorist unit Delta Force. Featuring full-color artwork, first-hand accounts, and archive and close-up photographs, this is the engaging story of the M3 submachine gun. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975047 Thompsom, Leroy 047 GERMAN MACHINE GUNS OF WORLD WAR I: MG 08 and MG 08/15 Germany's MG 08 machine gun won a formidable reputation on WWI battlefields from Tannenberg to the Somme. Although it was a lethally effective weapon when used from static positions, the MG 08 was far too heavy to perform a mobile role on the battlefield.

As the British and French began to deploy lighter machine guns alongside their heavier weapons, the Germans fielded the Danish Madsen and British Lewis as stopgaps, but chose to adapt the MG 08 into a compromise weapon -- the MG 08/15 -- which would play a central role in the revolutionary developments in infantry tactics that characterized the last months of the conflict. In the 1940s, the two weapons were still in service with German forces fighting in a new world war.

Drawing upon eyewitness battlefield reports, this absorbing study assesses the technical performance and combat record of these redoubtable and influential German machine guns, and their strengths and limitations in a variety of battlefield roles. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975054 Thompson, Leroy 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 favorite 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 color artwork, this is the story of one of World War II's most distinctive and respected infantry weapons. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978072 Dildy, Doug 072 F-15C EAGLE vs MIG-23/25 Designed following the relatively poor performance of America's multi-role fighters during the Vietnam War, the F-15 Eagle was conceived as a dedicated air superiority fighter. After 15 years, the Eagle didn't fight in Europe, they battled the MiGs of Saddam Hussein's Iraqi air force.

This book analyses the combat between the American and Soviet 'Cold War fighters' in a balanced manner, examining how the technical abilities of the aircraft combined with the different levels of training available to opposing pilots and ground crews allowed the F-15s to destroy the Iraqi offensive abilities within weeks of the First Gulf War starting.

1-978075 Guardia, Mike 075 BRADLEY vs BMP: Desert Storm 1991 In the mid-1960s, the Soviet Union unveiled the BMP, the first true infantry fighting vehicle. A revolutionary design, the BMP marked a significant departure from the traditional armored personnel carrier, with a lower silhouette and heavier armament than rival APCs.

One of the most fearsome light-armored vehicles of its day, it caused great consternation on the other side of the Iron Curtain as the Americans scrambled to design a machine to rival the BMP. The result was the M2/M3 Bradley. These Cold War icons first clashed -- not on the plains of Europe, but in southern Iraq during the Gulf War of 1991.

Following nearly two decades of tensions and sporadic conflict between India and Pakistan, in August 1965 several thousand Pakistani soldiers entered the disputed territory of Kashmir disguised as local civilians, to which India responded with a successful ground assault. The ensuing battles would demonstrate that the Centurion, with its powerful gun and heavier armour, generally proved superior to the faster, lighter, but overly complex Patton.

Featuring full-color artwork, expert analysis and absorbing combat accounts, this is the full story of the clash between two leading tanks of the Cold War era that were never designed to fight each other, but rather to line up on battlefields as allies. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

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

But, the MiG-17's unequalled low-speed manoeuvrability, small size and powerful cannon armament meant that the American forces didn't have it all their own way. This fully illustrated book, featuring photographs, maps, and battlescene artwork, reveals the tactics that were developed by pilots on both sides to give themselves the edge in air-to-air dogfights, allowing the reader to understand how the differing design and development doctrines played a part in combat.

The Wehrmacht's Panzer III was well matched by the French Somua S35 tanks, the two representing very different design philosophies and yet both ranking among the best in the world at the time. Fully illustrated with specially commissioned color artwork, this work draws upon the latest research to provide a definitive analysis of the clash between these two high-quality, cutting-edge tank designs. It describes one of the key duels at the heart of a new type of warfare, in the epic battles at the outset of Hitler's conquest of France and the Low Countries.

1-978076 Stille, Mark 076 US NAVY SHIPS vs KAMIKAZES 1944-45 The ineffectiveness of conventional air attacks on US Navy surface ships, particularly heavily defended targets like carrier task groups, forced the Japanese to re-evaluate their tactics in late 1944. The solution they arrived at was simple - crash their aircraft into American ships. This notion of self-sacrifice fit well within the Japanese warrior psyche and proved terrifying to the American sailors subjected to it. These tactics brought immediate results, and proved effective until the end of the war.

This book examines this terrifying new way of waging war, revealing how the US Navy was forced to adapt its tactics and deploy new weapons to counter the threat posed by kamikaze attacks, as well as assessing whether the damage caused to American naval strength by the loss of so many pilots and aircraft actually had a material impact. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-978073 Young, Edward M. 073 F4U CORSAIR vs KI-84 FRANK: Pacific Theater 1945 The Vought Corsair was the first American single-engined fighter to exceed 400 mph and establish dominance over the legendary Mitsubishi Type Zero-sen. The Ki-84 Hayate was introduced by the Japanese specifically to counter this growing American dominance of the skies over the Pacific.

Built in greater numbers than any other late war Japanese fighter, nearly 3000 were completed between 1944 and 1945. This volume examines the clashes between the Corsair and Ki-84 in the closing stages of the war, revealing how Corsair pilots had to adapt their techniques and combat strategies to adapt to these newer types. It also reveals how the kill rate was largely driven by the reduced quality of fighter pilots after the high casualty rates inflicted on the Japanese air force during the air battles over the Solomon Islands. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

First employed in 1942, the weapon required a great deal of skill and courage to use effectively. By late 1944, it was a mainstay of the US infantry's anti-tank capabilities, alongside towed weapons, anti-tank grenades, and other longer-established measures.

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.

1-984111 Osborn, Patrick R 111 THE HINDENBURG LINE Jagging across northwestern Europe like an ugly scar, the Hindenburg Line was Germany's most formidable line of defense in World War I. Its fearsome reputation was matched only by its cunning design, with deep zigzagging trenches, concrete fieldworks, barbed wire and devilish booby traps forming an intimidating barrier for any attacking army.

Through meticulous research, this volume explores each of the major portions of the Hindenburg Line, paying particular attention to three examples of Allied operations against it towards the end of the war: the critical flanking of the Drocourt-Qeant Switch; the daring but costly rupture of the line of the St. Quentin Canal; and the bloody battles of the Meuse-Argonne.

After the alarming collapse of Italy in 1943, the Germans launched a crash building program and the 'Sudwall' (South Wall) sprang up quickly along the French Mediterranean coast and the neighboring Italian coast around Genoa. The new defenses were bolstered by existing French fortifications of key port towns such as Marseilles and Toulon - many of them bristling with heavy artillery.

Whilst describing the wall's physical design features, this book also recounts the defenses' role in the Allied invasion of Southern France; Operation Dragoon - 'The Second D-Day'. As the Germans' worst fears became a reality, the southern Atlantic Wall would face its ultimate test. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-992101 Davies, Peter 101 F-104 STARFIGHTER UNITS IN COMBAT This title covers the technical characteristics of the F-104 Starfighter, one of the most widely-used and popular aircraft in history. Although built in small numbers for the USAF, the F-104C fought and survived for almost three years in Vietnam. There, it was engaged in some of the war's most famous battles including the legendary operation Bolo, where seven North Vietnamese MiGs were destroyed without the loss of a single US fighter.

This small, tough and very fast fighter, dubbed 'The Missile with a Man in It', was called upon to do things it was not specifically designed for, and did them admirably. Featuring illustrations and photographs detailing the variety of nose-paint schemes and weapons configurations, this comprehensive appraisal of the F-104 Starfighter is ideal for modeling and aviation enthusiasts alike.

1-992116 Davies, Peter E 116 US NAVY F-4 PHANTOM II UNITS OF THE VIETNAM WAR 1964-68 The F-4 Phantom II is perhaps the most famous post-war fighter. Primarily used as a land-based fighter-bomber and reconnaissance platform, its naval origins and the immense contribution made to the US war effort in Vietnam by its original carrier-based versions began its legend.

This title examines the unique aspects of the Phantom that made it so crucial to US Navy pilots during the Vietnam War - its massive engine power, long range, speed, the most powerful airborne search and fire-control radar installed in a fighter at the time, and of course its versatility as a ground attack and air-to-air platform. Packed with first hand accounts, unique profile artwork, and rare photographs, this is the history of one of the most important aircraft to be stationed on carriers off Southeast Asia during the war. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-992118 Forsyth, Robert 118 HE 162 VOLKSJAGER UNITS Hitler's instructions to his aircraft designers were clear: he wanted a Volksjager - a People's Fighter - that was quick to produce and used minimal quantities of strategic materials. Heinkel rose to the challenge with the He 162, a fighter constructed of wood and metal that was designed, built and flown in the staggeringly short time of ten weeks.

Professional pilots were in short supply, and so the Luftwaffe was ordered to man the He 162 with hastily trained members of the Hitler Youth - a flawed plan that fortunately never came to fruition.

Detailed aircraft profiles and never before seen photographs perfectly complement the analysis of the revolutionary Heinkel He 162 from the early design and production through to its limited combat experience. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

As the war in the west progressed, and German forces advanced, French airfields opened up, allowing the Condor to fly around the UK and out into the Atlantic, where it rapidly established itself as one of the key menaces to Allied shipping. Able to attack shipping directly, or able to guide U-Boats to their prey the Condor scored its first major success when it crippled the liner Empress of Great Britain.

But the tables were to turn on the 'Scourge of the Atlantic' as mechanical failures induced by
their harsh operating environment and changes in Allied tactics began to take a toll. Vulnerable to aerial attack, the deployment of Allied carriers and their associated fighters combined with the introduction of more long range maritime patrol aircraft exposed the Condor's deficiencies.

1-992113 Thompson, Warren 113 F-51 MUSTANG UNITS OF THE KOREAN WAR By the time the Korean War erupted, the F-51 Mustang was seen as obsolete, but that view quickly changed when the USAF rushed 145 of them to the theater in late 1950. They had the endurance to attack targets in Korea from bases in Japan, where the modern F-86 fighters and other jets did not. Rather than the interceptor and escort fighter roles the Mustang had performed during World War II, in the Korean War they were assigned to ground attack missions - striking at communist troop columns advancing south.

This is the chronicle of the Mustang units that fought in the Korean War, detailing the type's involvement in a series of intense actions, its successes and its considerable losses. Draws on meticulous research and gripping first-hand accounts from aircrew. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

It was infamous amongst its opponents for the quality and caliber of its aces - men such as Werner Molders, Hans-Karl Mayer, and Rolf Pingel.

1-993129 Laurier, Jim 129 J2M RAIDEN and N1K1/2 SHIDEN/SHIDEN-KAI Aces Although seen as a replacement for the A6M Zero-sen carrier-based fighter, the Mitsubishi J2M Raiden was actually designed as a land-based naval interceptor optimized for speed rather than maneuverability. Engine cooling problems for its Mitsubishi Kasai 23 engine, airflow, and flight control issues plagued the Raiden's development, but despite these production delays, aces Sadaaki Akamatsu, Yoshihiro Aoki, Susumu Ito, and Susumu Ishihara all claimed significant scores in the Raiden. Kawanishi's N1K family of fighters were privately developed by the manufacturer from the N1K Kyofu floatplane fighter.

Again plagued by structural and engine maladies, the N1K1-J Shiden eventually entered front-line service in time to see considerable action in the doomed defense of the Philippines in October 1944. Despite suffering heavy losses, the units equipped with new fighter proved that the N1K could more than hold its own against P-38s and F6Fs. The improved N1K2-J Shiden-KAI started to reach the front line by late 1944 - in time for defense of the Home Islands. Here, it proved to be the best IJN fighter of the war. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-993130 Toperczer, Istvan 130 MIG-17/19 ACES OF THE VIETNAM WAR The Vietnam People's Air Force (VPAF) at the beginning of the Vietnam War were equipped with slow, old Korean War generation fighters -- a combination of MiG-17s and MiG-19s -- that should have offered little opposition to the cutting-edge fighter-bombers such as the F-4 Phantom II, F-105 Thunderchief, and the F-8 Crusader. Yet when the USAF and US Navy unleashed their aircraft on North Vietnam in 1965, the inexperienced pilots of the VPAF were able to shatter the illusion of US air superiority.

Taking advantage of their jet's unequaled low-speed maneuverability, small size, and powerful cannon armament they were able to take the fight to their missile-guided opponents, with a number of Vietnamese pilots racking up ace scores.

Packed with information previously unavailable in the west and only recently released from archives in Vietnam, this is the first major analysis of the exploits of Vietnamese pilots in the David and Goliath contest with the US over the skies of Vietnam. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Commanded by the Pour le Merite winner and well-respected ace Hauptmann Bruno Loerzer for its entire existence, it was composed of the celebrated Jasta 'Boelcke', along with Jagdstaffeln 26, 27 and 36. Equipped largely with the new Fokker triplane, these four units would play an important role in the Kaiserschlacht as part of the 17th Armee.

As Germany's fortunes waned in the summer of 1918, the aces of JG III nonetheless did their best to stem the tides of British, French, and later American aircraft they encountered. Aces such as Carl Bolle, Paul Baumer, Heinrich Bongartz, Hermann Frommherz, Rudolf Klimke, and the infamous Hermann Goring all carved their names in the record books flying in this formidable formation. This book examines the tactics, achievements, and personalities of one of the deadliest of Germany's aerial units. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-993124 Weal, John 124 ARCTIC Bf 109 AND Bf 110 ACES Once Nazi Germany had conquered Norway in 1940, just a handful of Gruppen flying the Bf 109 and Bf 110 fighters were able to shatter all opposition and dominate the air in the Arctic Circle. Yet as the dual threats of the RAF and the Red Air Force grew, the Luftwaffe was forced to increase its fighter presence to full Geschwader strength with the formation of JG 5 Eismeer (ice-sea) in early 1942.

The struggle for the frozen skies of the arctic raged on until the end of the war as the embattled JG 5 produced some of the Eastern Front's leading aces, pilots of the caliber of Theodor Weissenberger, Heinrich Ehrler, Walter Schuck, Franz Dorr, and Jakob Norz all achieving over 100 kills. Featuring first-hand accounts from the pilots, extensive research, and illustrations of the aircraft in unique winter camouflage. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995230 D'amato, Raffaele 230 IMPERIAL ROMAN WARSHIPS 27 BC-193 AD The Roman Empire was not only built by the strength of the legions but also by a navy that was the most powerful maritime force ever to have existed. It was the presence of this fleet that secured the trade routes and maintained the communications within the huge Empire. The superior design of their warships, coupled with skilled naval commanders such as Agrippa, Sextus Pompeius, and Pontus Euxinus, gave the Roman Empire a formidable navy that could defend the coasts of the three continents under the rule of the Caesars.

Featuring archaeological photography and lavish artistic reconstructions, this book reveals the design and development history of Rome's naval force at the height of its Imperial power. As well as examining its warships, it reveals the navy's structure and the tactics that were developed to make the most of Rome's naval design superiority. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2015 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.

Includes illustrations, carefully researched ship profiles, and maps, this is the third volume in Osprey's Roman Warships miniseries. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995240 Estes, Kenneth 240 M50 ONTOS AND M56 SCORPION 1956-70: US Tank Destroyers of the Vietnam War Designed in the 1950s, the US Marines' M50 Ontos and the US Army's M56 Scorpion were both intended to be fast, light, air-droppable tank-killers for the Cold War battlefield - an answer to the cumbersome and ineffective World War II-vintage tanks that had taken to the battlefield during the Korean War.

Although they shared the aim of bringing light, mobile, and lethal antitank firepower to the infantry the two vehicles varied wildly in design to cater for their unique mission demands. They first saw service in the Lebanon intervention of 1958 but it was in the Vietnam War that they made their name, with the M50 Ontos seeing intense combat action in the Battle of Hue in 1968.

Detailed illustrations and expert analysis provide a comprehensive history of these deadly antitank vehicles, from early development through to their combat history and the eventual disbandment of the Marine Corps' last antitank battalion with M50A1s in 1971. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995216 Estes. Kenneth 216 SUPER-HEAVY TANKS OF WORLD WAR II The super-heavy tanks of World War II are heirs to the siege machine tradition - a means of breaking the deadlock of ground combat. As a class of fighting vehicle, they began with the World War I concept of the search for a 'breakthrough' tank, designed to cross enemy lines. It is not surprising that the breakthrough tank projects of the period prior to World War II took place in the armies that suffered the most casualties of the Great War (Russia, France, Germany).

All of the principal Axis and Allied nations eventually initiated super-heavy development projects, with increasingly heavy armor and armament. Much as the casualties of World War I prompted the original breakthrough tank developments, as Germany found itself on the defensive, with diminishing operational prospects and an increasingly desperate leadership, so too did its focus turn to the super-heavy tanks that could turn the tide back in their favor.

1-995242 Hampshire, Edward 242 SOVIET COLD WAR GUIDED MISSILE CRUISERS Heavily armed and formidable, guided missile cruisers formed the core of the Soviet Navy during the Cold War. From the last class of conventional Sverdlov-class cruisers through to increasingly complex and formidable missile cruisers, these ships ensured that NATO took the Soviet naval threat seriously. Soviet Cold War Guided Missile Cruisers covers all classes of these impressive warships, from the early Sverdlov through the Kynda, Kresta, Kara, and Slava to the enormous Kirov classes.

Together, these vessels marked the apogee of Soviet naval technology and capability and they remain today the largest non-aircraft carrier warships built since 1945. Containing material previously only available in Russian and fully researched from specialist defense journals, this comprehensive volume examines the design, development, and intended role of these impressive, hi-tech warships, and recounts their dramatic operational history as NATO and Soviet warships faced off against each other during the long Cold War at sea. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 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

1-995239 Konstam, Angus 239 NILE RIVER GUNBOATS 1882-1918 For more than 30 years the Nile river gunboat was an indispensable tool of empire, policing the great river and acting as floating symbols of British imperial power. They participated in every significant colonial campaign in the region, from the British invasion of Egypt in 1882 to the Battle of Omdurman in 1898, when Britain finally won control of the Sudan.

After that, the gunboats helped maintain British control over both Egypt and the Sudan, and played a key role in safeguarding British interests around the headwaters of the Nile - a region hotly contested by several European powers.

Featuring specially commissioned artwork, this comprehensive volume offers a detailed analysis of the Nile river gunboats' entire career, from policing British colonial interests along the great river to defending Egypt against the Ottoman Turks in World War I. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 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

1-995238 Lardas, MArk 238 WORLD WAR I SEAPLANE AND AIRCRAFT CARRIERS In 1910, the first aircraft was successfully launched from a small wooden platform on a stationary ship. Just four years later, seaplane-carrying warships were being used to launch the first naval air raids, and by 1918 the first aircraft carrier to feature a full-length flight deck was in service. High quality artwork and historical photographs helps tell the fascinating story of the pioneering years of naval aviation, covering such historic clashes as the Japanese siege of Tsingtao, the British raid against German Zeppelin bases at Cuxhaven, and the Battle of Jutland, which saw the first airplane take part in a naval battle.

Through detailed analysis he explores their development from hastily adapted merchant ships to the launch of HMS Argus, the first aircraft carrier to have a full-length flight deck, and shows how they paved the way for the aircraft carriers of the future. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995233 Newsome, Bruce 233 VALENTINE INFANTRY TANK 1938-45 The Valentine was the most produced and most widely used British tank of WWII. The Valentine first saw combat during Operation Compass in November 1941 and remained one of the main medium tanks in British service into 1943. As the Churchill became more prevalent, the Valentine was relegated to specialist and tank-destroyer variants, which would remain in service in the Far East to the end of the war.

This book describes the evolution of the Valentine design and weighs up its impact on the battlefield. Although widely regarded today as one of the weaker tanks to be fielded during the war, it was exceptionally numerous, with more Valentines produced than any other British tank. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995227 Noppen, Ryan K, 227 OTTOMAN NAVY WARSHIPS 1914-18 At the start of the 20th century the Ottoman Navy was a shadow of its former might, a reflection of the empire as a whole - the 'Sick Man of Europe.' Years of defeat, nepotism, and neglect had left the Ottoman Navy with a mix of obsolete vessels, whilst the list of prospective enemies was ever-growing. An increasing Russian naval presence in the Black Sea and the alarming emergence of Italy and Greece as regional Naval powers proved beyond all doubt that intensive modernization was essential, indeed, the fate of the Empire as a naval power depended on it.

So the Ottoman Navy looked to the ultimate naval weapon of the age, the dreadnought, two of which were ordered from the British. But politics intervened, and a succession of events culminated in the Ottoman Navy fielding a modern German battlecruiser and state-of-the-art light cruiser instead - with dramatic consequences.

This study, in co-operation with the Turkish Consulate and Navy, offers technical aspects and operations of the warships of the Ottoman Navy in World War I. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995228 Noppen, Ryan K, 228 GERMAN COMMERCE RAIDERS 1914-18 This is the story of Germany's commerce raiders of World War I, the surface ships that were supposed to starve the British Isles of the vast cargoes of vital resources being shipped from the furthest reaches of the Empire. To that end, pre-war German naval strategists allocated a number of cruisers and armed, fast ocean liners to the effort supported by a complex and globe-spanning supply system known as the Etappe network.

This book explains the often overlooked role that the commerce raiders played in World War I. Whilst exploring the design and development of the ships, it also describes their operational history, how they tied up a disproportionate amount of the British fleet on lengthy pursuits, and how certain raiders such as the SMS Emden were able to wreak havoc across the oceans. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995232 Stille, Mark 232 THE IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY OF THE RUSSO-JAPANESE WAR When the Imperial Japanese Navy destroyed Russia's battle fleet during the Russo-Japanese War, it marked the emergence of Japan as one of the world's major naval powers. Japan's navy had been built up over just two decades, with the IJN acquiring a fleet of modern foreign-built warships. Coupled with the IJN's leadership and high levels of training, this proved enough to destroy the fleet of one of the world's historic naval powers.

This book explains in concise detail the IJN's fleet of 1904-1905, from its battleships and armored cruisers to the torpedo boats that launched 'the first great torpedo attack in history,' and outlines the history of the naval campaign against the Russian fleet. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

In response to the severe air threat that surface ships faced, new cruisers were designed with increasingly heavy antiaircraft weaponry as well as the traditional 6-inch guns. With the speed and range to keep up with aircraft carriers, and their considerable antiaircraft capability, they were a mainstay of the carrier escorts.

1-995231 Zaloga, Steven 231 RAILWAY GUNS OF WWII World War II marked the zenith of railway gun development. Although many of the railway guns deployed at the start of the conflict were of World War I vintage, Germany's ambitious development program saw the introduction of a number of new classes, including the world's largest, the 80cm-calibre Schwerer Gustav and Schwerer Dora guns, which weighed in at 1,350 tons and fired a huge 7-ton shell.

This book provides an overview of the types of railway guns in service during World War II, with a special focus on the German railway artillery used in France, Italy and on the Eastern Front, and analyzes why railway guns largely disappeared from use following the end of the war. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995237 Zaloga, Steven 237 BT FAST TANK: The Red Army's Cavalry Tank 1931-45 When the Red Army needed to mechanize its cavalry branch in the 1930s, the BT fast tank was its solution. Based on the American Christie high-speed tank, the Red Army began a program to adapt the design to its own needs. Early versions were mechanically unreliable and poorly armed but by the mid-1930s, the BT-5 emerged, armed with an excellent dual-purpose 45mm gun. It saw its combat debut in the Spanish Civil War in 1937 and was later used in the border battles with the Japanese Kwangtung Army in the late 1930s. The final production series, the BT-7, was the most refined version of the family.

One of the most common types in Red Army service in the first years of the WWII, BT tanks saw extensive combat in Poland, Finland, and the opening phases of Operation Barbarossa in 1941 and latterly during the 1945 campaign against the Japanese in Manchuria - this is the story of their design and development history. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995245 Zaloga, Steven 245 EARLY US ARMOR TANKS: 1916-40 Between the two World Wars, the US contributed significantly to the development of the tank, a weapon invented by the British and the French seeking a way to break through the lines of German trenches. 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

The engagement ended the Second Punic War, waged from 218 until 201 BC. The armies were led by two of the most famous commanders of all time - the legendary Carthaginian general Hannibal, renowned for crossing the Alps with his army into Italy, and the Roman general Publius Cornelius Scipio, who along with his father was among the defeated at the battle of Cannae in 216 BC.

Drawing upon years of research, author Mir Bahmanyar gives a detailed account of this closing battle, analyzing the tactics employed by each general and the forces they had at their disposal.

His first target was Maxentius, who held Rome, the symbolic heart of the Empire. Inspired by a dream sent by the Christian God, at the Milvian Bridge region just north of Rome, he routed Maxentius' army and pursued the fugitives into the river Tiber. The victory secured Constantine's hold on the western half of the Roman Empire and confirmed his Christian faith, but many details of this famous battle remain obscured.

This new volume identifies the location of the battlefield and explains the tactics Constantine used to secure a victory that triggered the fundamental shift from paganism to Christianity. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Following the disastrous retreat from Burma in April 1942, China had become isolated from re-supply except for the dangerous air route for US transports over the Himalaya Mountains. The Burma Road, which ran from Lashio (south of Myitkyina) through the mountains to Kunming was closed as a supply route from Rangoon after the Japanese conquest. Without military assistance, China would be forced to surrender and Imperial Japanese Army forces could be diverted to other Pacific war zones.

This is the history of the ambitious joint Allied assault led by American Lt. Gen. Joseph W Stilwell and featuring British, American, and Chinese forces as they clashed with three skilled regiments of the Japanese 18th Division. Packed with first-hand accounts, specially commissioned artwork, maps and illustrations and dozens of rare photographs this book reveals the incredible Allied attack on Myitkyina. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996303 Fields, Nic 303 LAKE TRASIMENE 217 BC: Ambush and Annihilation of a Roman Army Following Hannibal's crushing victory at the battle of the Trebbia, the reeling Roman Republic sent a new army under the overconfident consul Caius Flaminius to destroy the Carthaginian invaders - unbeknownst to him they were ready and waiting. The destruction of the Roman force at Lake Trasimene firmly established Hannibal as one of the Ancient World's greatest commanders thanks to his use of innovative tactics, including the first recorded use of a turning movement. The Romans would not send another major army to confront him until the battle of Cannae in 216 BC.

This new study, based on recent archaeological work on the battlefield itself, tells the full story of one of Hannibal's greatest victories with the help of maps, full-color illustrations, and detailed sections on the make-up of the armies and their commanders. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996291 Forczyk, Robert 291 THE DNEPR 1943: Hitler's Eastern Rampart Crumbles Against the wishes of Hitler, German forces under Erich von Manstein were forced to retreat following the failure of the Kursk offensive of July 1943. The weakened force only had one possible refuge, behind the wide Dnepr River. The race to the natural defensive line was on, with the Soviets launching one of their largest offensives of the war - with over two million men on the move. Expert Eastern Front historian Robert Forczyk describes the dramatic four-month campaign that saw the Red Army not only succeed in crossing the Dnepr at multiple points, but also liberate Kiev, capital of the Ukraine.

Revealing new details about the largest Soviet airborne operation of the war and the increasingly desperate delaying tactics employed by Manstein as catastrophic casualties mounted on both sides, Forczyk charts the course of the battle that confirmed to many observers that the relentless Soviet advance westward could not be halted. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

What they did not know is that the Soviets knew about the coming attack, and they were ready.

This book focuses on the southern front of this campaign, which featured one of the biggest clash of armor of the war in the battle of Prokhorovka. It details the tactics and mistakes of the army commanders as they orchestrated one of the bloodiest battles in World War II.

1-996301 Ford, Ken 301 OPERATION MARKET-GARDEN 1944 (2): The British Airborne Missions With Germany being pushed back across Europe, the Allied forces lsought to press their advantage with Operation Market-Garden, a massive airborne assault that, if successful, could have shortened the war in the west considerably.

The ground advance consisted of an armored thrust by the British XXX Corps, while the US 82nd and 101st US Airborne Divisions secured the bridges at Eindhoven and Nijmegen and the British 1st Airborne Division and Polish 1st Airborne Brigade were tasked with seizing the final bridge at Arnhem to secure the route. What they did not realize was that the 9th SS and 10th SS Panzer Divisions were nearby, ready to reinforce the local garrison and fend off the Allied assault.

Focusing on the role played by these British and Polish troops, Operation Market-Garden examines from the early planning through to the early setbacks and eventual catastrophic conclusion. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996276 Franklin, John 276 WATERLOO 1815 (1) Quatre Bras To commemorate the 2015 bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo, one of the defining campaigns in European History, Osprey is replacing its single volume Campaign title covering the whole of the battle with three highly detailed volumes. Based on new research drawn from unpublished first-hand accounts these volumes will provide a comprehensive resource for every aspect of the battle.

The first of this trilogy details the battle of Quatre Bras where an initial 8,000 Allied troops faced 48,000 men of the French Armee du Nord under Marshal Ney. Realizing his error, Wellington concentrated his troops at the strategic crossroads of Quatre Bras where they just managed to hold off Ney's attacks. The battle ended in a tactical stalemate but, unable to link up with Blucher's Prussians, Wellington retreated back along the road to Brussels to new positions at Waterloo. Featuring extensive photographs, full color artworks, maps and bird's-eye-views, this first installment is not to be missed.

1-996283 Gilbert, Ed & Catherine 283 COWPENS 1781: Turning point of the American Revolution This is a blistering account of the battle of Cowpens, a short, sharp conflict which marked a crucial turning point in the American Revolution. With Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton and the British troops in hot pursuit, Daniel Morgan, leading a small force of 700 Continentals and militia, chose the Cowpens as the battlefield in which to make a stand. The two forces clashed for barely more than 45 minutes, yet this brief battle shaped the outcome of the War in the South and decisively influenced the conflict as a whole.

Provides a shrewd analysis of what was perhaps the finest tactical performance of the entire war. Bird's-eye views, vivid illustrations, and detailed maps illuminate the dynamism of this clash between two of the most famous commanders of the War of Independence. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996294 Hart, Stephen 294 OPERATION TOTALIZE 1944: The Allied Drive South from Caen In Operation Totalize, LtGen Guy Simonds' II Canadian Corps launched an attack from its positions along the Bourguebus Ridge south of Caen, striking south-southeast astride the main Caen-Falaise road toward the high ground that dominated the town of Falaise and the key west-east lateral road that ran through this town. Using sophisticated operational art the initial break-in achieved rapid success; indeed, more tactical success than any previous Allied break-in attack in Normandy.

However, despite this rapid initial success, Totalize did not subsequently secure a decisive operational-level victory. Indeed, Simonds' forces subsequently struggled swiftly to complete the second break-in battle, and to transit into rapid exploitation operations. Had Simond's force been successful the German army may not have been able to extract themselves from the Falaise pocket and would have been surrounded and defeated - possibly bringing about the early end of the war in Europe. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996171 Konstam, Angus 171 RIVER PLATE 1939: The Sinking of the Graf Spee Days before the outbreak of World War II, a handful of German commerce raiders put out to sea to prey on Allied merchantmen. Amongst them was the Panzerschiff ('armored ship') Graf Spee, a formidable warship that boasted the firepower of a battleship but the size, speed and range of a cruiser. When World War II commenced, under the command of Captain Langsdorff the Graf Spee began a hunting spree across the South Atlantic and the Indian Ocean that eventual took her to the River Plate in search of her next victim - an Allied convoy. Instead she found three Royal Navy cruisers under the command of Commodore Harwood, eager to put an end to the 'pocket battleship' that had been terrorizing Allied merchant ships.

Featuring full color artwork, archive photographs and meticulous research, this comprehensive volume explores the thrilling story behind the Battle of the River Plate, an engagement that unquestionably demonstrated the effectiveness of British seapower and diplomacy on an international stage. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996288 Konstam, Angus 288 TARANTO 1940: The Fleet Air Arm's Precursor to Pearl Harbor UK Royal Navy's attack on Taranto in 1940 heralded a new age of warfare. It was the decisive moment in a struggle for dominance of the Mediterranean that had gone on for months, as the British and Italian navies both looked to secure maritime supply routes for their colonies.

With the enormous demands of a global war beginning to tell, the British capital ships were simply too thinly spread for a large fleet action against Taranto, where the bulk of the Italian fleet lay menacingly. How was the Royal Navy to eliminate the threat of the Regia Marina?

Describes one of World War II's most devastating raids, recounting how a handful of obsolete Fairey Swordfish biplanes swooped in and destroyed an Italian battleship and badly damaged two more. With expert analysis, detailed color illustrations and a narrative, this book explains the origins of the attack, its planning and execution, and what happened in the aftermath. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

In this dire situation, President Abraham Lincoln decided Grant was the man for the occasion. In early October, Grant was promoted to command of the Military District of Mississippi and told to clean up the mess created by Chickamauga.

This book tracks how over the next three months Grant would orchestrate the movements of three Union Armies - The Army of the Cumberland, The Army of the Tennessee, and two Corps from the Army of the Potomac. He would lead them into a series of battles that saw them break the siege of Chattanooga with three battles in three days. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996298 Macrpry, Richard 298 THE FIRST AFGHAN WAR 1839-42: Invasion, Catastrophe and Retreat In 1839 forces of the British East India Company crossed the Indus to invade Afghanistan on the pretext of reinstating a former king Shah Soojah to his rightful throne. The reality was that this was another step in Britain's Great Game - Afghanistan would create a buffer to any potential Russian expansion towards India.

This history traces the initial, campaign which would see the British easily occupy Kabul and the rebellion that two years later would see the British army humbled. Forced to negotiate a surrender the British fled Kabul en masse in the harsh Afghan winter. Decimated by Afghan guerilla attacks and by the harsh cold and a lack of food and supplies just one European - Dr Brydon would make it to the safety of Jalalabad five days later. This book goes on to trace the retribution attack on Kabul the following year, which destroyed the symbolic Mogul Bazaar before rapidly withdrawing and leaving Afghanistan in peace for nearly a generation. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996292 Smith, David 292 CAMDEN 1780: The Annihilation of Gates' Grand Army As the American Revolution continued, the British refocused their fight on the southern colonies in the hopes of triggering an outbreak of loyalism that would sweep the rebels aside. Under Sir Henry Clinton they captured Savannah at the end of 1778, and Charleston in May 1780, with Lord Cornwallis being left in command with just 8,500 men under him. Too thinly spread to guard the 15,000 square miles he was assigned to control, Cornwallis went on the offensive, invading North Carolina and using Camden as a launch pad.

This new history reveals how Cornwallis was able to use his aggressive strategy to great effect and how the overconfidence of the re-formed American forces under Horatio Gates was to result in a shocking defeat on the night of 15 August 1780 -- a defeat that would allow Cornwallis to push deep into North Carolina the following year, where he would only be stopped by the American victory at Yorktown. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Giving birth to the myth of the Imperial Japanese Army's invincibility, the victory left both Burma and India open to invasion. Although heavily outnumbered, the Japanese Army fought fiercely to overcome the inept defense offered by the British and Commonwealth forces.

Detailed analysis of the conflict, combined with a heavy focus on the significance of the aerial campaign, help tell the fascinating story of the Japanese victory, from the initial landings in Thailand and Malaya through to the destruction of the Royal Navy's Force Z and the final fall of Singapore itself. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996293 Zaloga, Steven 293 DOWNFALL 1945: The Fall of Hitler's Third Reich As the final month of fighting in Europe in 1945 dawned the Allies embarked upon a series of mopping up operations, destroying the last centers of German resistance as the essentially defeated Wehrmacht fought on in increasingly desperate conditions, driven on by the explicit no surrender order issued by Hitler.

Yet at the same time, the Allied alliance was already on shaky ground, as German resistance was crushed the Allies began to eye each other nervously across a battle-torn Europe, with the politically driven military decisions to have a huge impact on the future of the continent.

This book traces the final operations of the war, from the liberation of Denmark, the Allied drive towards the Baltic straits, incursions in Yugoslavia, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and engagements in Eastern and Western Germany, whilst also analyzing how the Allied strategies in the final days of the war were a hint of the future difficulties that would drive the Cold War. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-997215 Haythornthwaite 215 BRITISH LIGHT INFANTRY & RIFLE TACTICS OF THE NAPOLEONIC WARS In an age when infantry units maneuvered and fought in rigid blocks, the idea of encouraging initiative and allowing a unit to 'skirmish' was regarded as revolutionary and fell out of favor in the years following the French-Indian and American Revolutionary wars. It was revived by far-sighted British and foreign-mercenary officers, who observed the way in which French Revolutionary armies deployed skirmishers to prepare the way for their assault columns.

Offering a detailed analysis of the tactics, this book is studded with period 'battle descriptions' quoted from eyewitness accounts, creating a comprehensive guide to the Light and Rifles units of Wellington's Light Division. As the result of the first tentative experiments in skirmishing the units achieved an unsurpassed peak of efficiency -- they marched faster, were versatile in any sort of tactical situation and could shoot more accurately than either friend or foe. No other national army, either allied or enemy, achieved these standards. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-997213 Konstam, Angus 213 THE BARBARY PIRATES: 15th-17th Centuries For the best part of three centuries the 'corsairs' or pirates from the 'Barbary' coasts of North Africa dominated the Western and Central Mediterranean. They made forays far into the Atlantic, preying on the shipping and coastal settlements across Christian Europe, ranging from Greece to West Africa and the British Isles.

In the absence of organized European navies they seldom faced serious opposition, and the scope of their raiding was remarkable. As well as piracy and slave-raiding they fought as privateers, sharing their spoils with the rulers of the port-cities that provided them with ships, men, and a ready market. This book examines their development and their style of fighting, chronicles their achievements and failures, and illustrates their appearance and that of their ships, explaining why they were so feared and effective. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-997211 Neville, Leigh 211 The SAS 1983-2014 Highly-trained and immensely skilled, the SAS are widely regarded as one of the best Special Forces units in the world. Their missions are uniquely diverse, ranging from counter-terrorist responses at home and abroad; counter-insurgency in collaboration with US Delta Force and other foreign Special Forces; mobile operations in support of conventional forces; targeting terrorist leaders and man-hunting war criminals, to 'direct action' raids.

This book charts the changing organization and operational emphases of the Regiment over the past 25 years; its individual deployments and operations, including those planned but aborted, joint missions with other British and foreign units. It sheds light on the SAS's involvement in the Troubles of Northern Ireland, their operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and the widespread use of the SAS in counter terrorism and counterinsurgency operations since 9/11.

It reveals the training and organizational changes that the unit has undergone and investigates in particular how their doctrine and tactics have changed during the 14-year war in Afghanistan.

At the beginning of the war the Rangers were an elite light infantry unit of picked men tasked with short duration recon raids and securing ground behind enemy lines in support of Special Forces; they have since evolved into a special-mission unit themselves -- on the cusp of being assigned to the Joint Special Operations Command. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-997214 Rottman 214 WORLD WAR II INFANTRY FIRE SUPPORT TACTICS As infantry units advanced across Europe the only support they could rely on from day to day was that provided by the heavy weapons of their own units. While thundering tanks struck fear into the hearts of their enemies it was the machine guns, mortars, and light cannon that proved to be most important, causing the majority of casualties suffered during World War II. Common principles were shared across units but the wide variety of weapons available to the different armies altered the way they were used in battle.

Focusing on the US, British, German and Soviet troops, this title offers a comprehensive guide to infantry fire support tactics used through World War II. Combat reports are complemented by specially commissioned artwork to show the way in which tactics varied, and highlight how developments obliged opposing armies to review their own methods. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

The route to Germany's interior and the Nazis final surrender was long, arduous and blood-stained. The Wehrmacht's stubborn resistance and the shocking losses suffered by US, British, Canadian and 'Free European' troops meant that the Allies had to adapt and refine small-unit tactics, battle-drills, and their use of weapons and munitions. The troops who finally met up with the Red Army in Germany were a very different fighting force to the one that struggled up the beaches of northern France.

With the bulk of the Royal Flying Corps engaged in France, the aircraft and seaplane pilots of the RNAS protected Britain from the deadly and terrifying Zeppelin menace. In 1915 the RNAS sent aircraft to support the operations in the Dardanelles, and also gave increasing support to the Royal Flying Corps units engaged on the Western Front, conducting reconnaissance, intelligence gathering and artillery spotting, bombing raids, and aerial combat with German pilots. This book explores all of these fascinating areas, and charts the pioneering role of the RNAS in military aviation.

1-998180 D'amato, Raffaele 180 EARLY IRON AGE GREEK WARRIOR: 1100-700 BC The period from 1200 BC onwards saw vast changes in every aspect of life on both the Greek mainland and islands as monarchies disappeared and were replaced by aristocratic rule and a new form of community developed: the city-state. Alongside these changes a new style of warfare developed which was to be the determining factor in land warfare in Greece until the defeat of the Greek city-state by the might of Macedonia at Chaeronea in 338 BC.

This mode of warfare was based on a group of heavily armed infantrymen organized in a phalanx formation - the classic hoplite formation - and remained the system throughout the classical Greek period. This new title details this pivotal period that saw the transition from the Bronze Age warriors of Homer to the origins of the men who fought the Persian and Peloponnesian Wars. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-998177 Grant, Neil 177 RHODESIAN LIGHT INFANTRYMAN: 1961-80 The 1st Battalion, The Rhodesian Light Infantry, was one of the most innovative and successful counter-insurgency units in modern history. Formed as a commando battalion in 1964 after the dissolution of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, the RLI was an all-white unit made up of South Africans and men from the UK, Europe and US. It was a key weapon in independent Rhodesia's struggle against the Zimbabwe African National Liberation Army and Zimbabwe People's Revolutionary Army during the bloody Rhodesian Bush War.

This explores the unit's dramatic history and reveals the RLI's airborne and combat capacity, which gave the unit, at times, near total tactical superiority against its opponents. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-998181 Konstam, Angus 181 BRITISH COMMANDO 1940-45 Winston Churchill ordered the creation of a special, volunteer fighting force - the Commandos - drawn from the ranks of the British Army, formed into a Special Service Brigade, and put through a rigorous but highly effective training program.

Over the course of World War II, they saw action in every major theater of operation and were credited with numerous feats of gallantry during the D-Day landings. Although many units were disbanded after the war, the Royal Marine Commandos have maintained the standards of this elite fighting formation to the present day.

Explores the history of the Commandos during their formative years and provides detailed descriptions of their training, weapons, and equipment. Battle reports, artwork, and historical photographs offer an in-depth analysis of some of the most famous fighting units in the British Army's history. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

2-998148 Moreman, TIm 148 Long Range Desert Group Patrolman: The Western Desert 1940-43 Nicknamed the 'Libyan Desert Taxi Service' by the SAS, the Long Range Desert Group was tasked with strategic reconnaissance and raiding operations deep inside the enemy-held deserts of North Africa. Armed with light weapons only, and equipped with specially converted light cars and trucks capable of withstanding the harsh conditions, the LRDG quickly proved it could operate in parts of the desert which other troops, including the enemy, found impassable. This new Warrior title examines the soldiers of the LRDG from the group's formation, through training, to combat in vast, lonely, and deadly deserts of North Africa. 1 vol, 72 pgs 2010 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-998179 Neville, Leigh 179 US ARMY GREEN BERET IN AFGHANISTAN 2001-02 In October 2001 the most militarily advanced nation on earth came into conflict with one of the least developed nations as American forces poured into Afghanistan. The tip of the spear was drawn from the US Special Forces community, and largely from the units of the United States Army Special Forces - the famous Green Berets. Together with the Special Activities Division of the CIA and the Afghan Northern Alliance, they overthrew the Taliban in a lightning campaign that redefined modern warfare.

This new study reveals the grueling Green Beret training and preparation, the specialized equipment they used in the field and traces their deployment throughout the campaign, from the first insertion of forces through to the fall of Kabul and Kandahar, the Taliban uprising at the notorious Fort of War in Mazar-e-Sharif, and the clearance of Tora Bora and Operation Anaconda in the Shahikot Valley. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

2-998147 Rottman, Gordon 147 US Combat Engineer 1941-45 At its peak in World War II, the United States Army contained over 700 engineer battalions, along with numerous independent brigades and regiments. The specialized soldiers of the Engineers were tasked with a wide variety of crucially important tasks including river bridging, camouflage, airfield construction, and water and petroleum supply. However, despite their important support roles, the engineers were often employed on the front lines fighting beside the general infantry in the desperate battles of the European theater. This book covers the role of these soldiers, from their recruitment and training, through their various support missions and combat experiences, forming an account of what it was truly like to be a combat engineer in World War II.

1-999502 D'Amato, Raffaele 502 BYAZANTINE NAVAL FORCES 1261-1461: The Roman Empire's Last Marines After the recapture of Constantinople, Emperor Michael VIII Palaiologos was determined to bring glory back to the Byzantine Empire. To achieve this, he established an Imperial Fleet and raised new regiments of elite marine troops. This work provides a comprehensive, illustrated guide to the unit history and appearance of these men, who were at the cutting edge of the last great flourish of Byzantine naval power. They won victory after victory in campaigns throughout the 1260s-70s, and though successive periods of decline and partial resurrection followed, these marine units survived until the very last flickers of Byzantine resistance were extinguished.

Drawing upon early literary sources, the rich evidence of period illuminated manuscripts, frescoes and other iconography, this details the lasting legacy of the swan song of Byzantine naval power. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999506 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

1-999510 de Groot, Bouko 510 DUTCH ARMIES OF THE 80 YEARS' WAR - 1568-1648 (1): Infantry The 80 Years' War (also known as the Dutch War of Independence) laid the foundation of Dutch nationhood. 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

This history goes on to trace the forces who were drawn into internal wars and rebellions in the 1850s and 60s, the open warfare in North Vietnam, the string of defeats suffered during the First Sino-Japanese war and the Boxer Rebellion. Providing an unparalleled insight into the dizzying array of troop types and unique uniforms, this is a history of the sometimes-painful modernization of China's military forces during one of her most turbulent periods of history. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999504 Esposito, Gabriele 504 ARMIES OF THE WAR OF THE PACIFIC 1879-83: Chile, Peru, and Bolivia The Pacific War was the greatest and bloodiest war ever fought in the Andean region, and is one of the most important conflicts in South American history. It is also known as the 'Saltpeter War' or the 'Guano War' because the possession of these two highly profitable nitrates was the main cause of the conflict.

By the 1870s Chilean military superiority and expansionist policies exploded into full scale conflict. This book examines the troops, uniforms, and equipment used by the Chilean, Peruvian, and Bolivian forces and traces the events of the war from the early naval blockades, through major pitched battles, to the final guerilla campaign in occupied Peru. The war ended in total victory for Chile, and that country's military emergence thereafter as 'the Prussia of South America', while it cost Peru some lucrative provinces and Bolivia its outlet to the Pacific coast. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

It was an African war that captured the attention of the western media, with individual commanders such as Biafran leader Colonel Ojukwu and Federal Colonel Adekunle becoming familiar figures across the globe. The Nigerian forces easily outnumbered their opponents and benefitted from British and Soviet equipment, yet against all the odds the Biafrans held out for two and a half years, inflicting many setbacks on the Federal forces before their eventual surrender in 1970.

Specially commissioned artwork and historical photos, including some from respected Italian war photographer Romano Ganoni, reflect the diverse array of uniforms and equipment on both sides, with images ranging from Sandhurst-educated officers in immaculate uniform to ragged militiamen armed with World War II kit. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-999497 Thomas, Nigel 497 ARMIES OF THE RUSSO-POLISH WAR 1919-21 In 1917 Poland was recognized as a state by Russia, but the Bolshevik coup threatened this. The Polish leader Marshal Pilsudski hurried to build an army around Polish World War I veterans, and in 1918 war broke out for Poland's independence, involving the the Poles, the Red and White Russian armies, at least two different Ukrainian forces, and Allied intervention troops.

The armies that fought these campaigns were extraordinarily varied in their uniforms and insignia, equipment and weapons, and when peace was signed in 1921, Poland had achieved recognized nationhood for the first time since 1794. Featuring specially commissioned full-color artwork, this engaging study explains and illustrates the armies that fought in the epic struggle for the rebirth of the independent Polish nation, in the bitter aftermath of World War I. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2014 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

Raised in 1831, the Legion's formative years would see it fight continuous and savage campaigns in Algeria, aid the Spanish government in the Carlist War, join the British in the Crimean campaign and fight alongside the Swiss in the bloody battles of Magenta and Solferino. With the ever-changing combat environments they found themselves in, the Legion had to constantly adapt in order to survive.
Taking advantage of the latest research, this lavishly illustrated study explores the evolution of the uniforms and kit of the French Foreign Legion, from their early campaigns in Algeria through to their iconic Battle of Camerone in Mexico and their role in the Franco-Prussian war. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-211470 KLEINKRIEG: The German Experience with Guerrilla Wars from Clausewitz to Hitler This work examines the German analysis to the problem, covering their experiences from the Napoleonic era to the Third Reich. Though the latter regime, the most despicable in history, needed to be destroyed by US/UK conventional force, as well as that of the Soviets, the German military meantime provided analysis to the question of grassroots - as opposed to great-power - warfare.

This work is built around the historical analysis titled Kleinkrieg, provided to the German High Command by Arthur Earhardt in 1935 (republished in 1942 and 1943) which examined insurgencies from French-occupied Spain to recurrent problems in the Balkans. It also calls upon the Bandenbekampfung (Fighting the Guerilla Bands) document provided to Germany's OKW in 1944. In both, conditions that were specific to broader military operations were separated from circumstances in occupation campaigns, and new background in the German experience in suppressing rebellion in World War II is presented.

Edited and annotated, along with new analysis, by Charles D. Melson, former Chief Historian for the US Marine Corps, Kleinkrieg expands our knowledge of the Western experience in coping with insurgencies. Without partaking in ideological biases, this work examines the purely military problem as seen by professionals. While small wars are not new, how they should be fought by a modern industrial nation is still a question to be answered. Rediscovered and presented in English, these German thoughts on the issue are now made available to a new generation of guerilla and irregular war fighters in the West. 1 vol, 216 pgs 2016 US, CASEMATE

1-210800 Binda, Alexandre THE EQUUS MEN: Rhodesia's Mounted Infantry: The Grey's Scouts 1896-1980 Includes 300 color and b/w photos and 4 maps.

This all new work by accomplished military historian Alexandre Binda, former paymaster to the Grey's Scouts, tables the remarkable story of Rhodesia's mounted infantry, the Grey's Scouts. Working closely with the last commanding officer, squadron commanders and a whole host of regimental personalities, all of whom have given The Equus Men their unequivocal support Binda has enjoyed unparalleled access to thousands of pages of archival documents and many hundreds of previously unpublished photographs.

Here, he has traced the Grey's from their early origins in the Matabele Rebellion of 1896, where an 'unassuming Englishman, the Honorable George Grey', found himself originating a body of horseman named the 'Bulawayo Field Force', through to the formation of the Animal Transport Unit (ATU) which went on to become the Mounted Infantry Unit (MIU).

With the skill of a practiced narrator, Binda takes the reader through these early days to the establishment of the Grey's Scouts in the Rhodesian Army order of battle in 1976. Deployed to great effect during the bitter Rhodesian Bush War of the late 1960s - 1970s, the mounted operations conducted by the Grey's are succinctly and clearly detailed. Some of the contacts related make for astonishing reads and with the lively, vibrant, text one can almost feel the steaming sweat of rider and mount; sense the pounding adrenaline; hear the thundering hooves as a fearful enemy is pursued to battle's inevitable conclusion.

Suffice to say, The Equus Men makes for an engaging read. Trained and utilized as mounted infantry as opposed to cavalry, the Grey's Scouts saw exceptional success in the field. Lightly equipped, they were able to cover great distances at speed, live off the veldt with minimal support and through 'shock action', quickly engage and destroy insurgent forces. Originally a regular formation, the Grey's Scouts were augmented by Territorial and National Service soldiers as the conflict progressed and by 1980, when hostilities ceased, the Regiment numbered some 600 soldiers, both men and women, black and white. 1 vol, 288 pgs 2016 UK, HELION AND COMPANY

1-212430 Black, Jeremy MAPS OF WAR: Mapping Conflict Through the Centuries There is little documented mapping of conflict prior to the Renaissance period, but, from the 17th century onward, military commanders and strategists began to document the wars in which they were involved and, later, to use mapping to actually plan the progress of a conflict. Using contemporary maps, this sumptuous new volume covers the history of the mapping of land wars, and shows the way in which maps provide a guide to the history of war.

Content includes:

* The beginnings of military mapping prior to 1600, such as the impact of printing and the introduction of gunpowder.

* The 17th century: The focus is on maps to illustrate war, rather than as a planning tool, and the chapter considers the particular significance of mapping fortifications.

* The 18th century: The growing need for maps on a world scale reflects the spread of European power, and of transoceanic conflict between Europeans. This chapter deals particularly with the American Revolution.

* The 19th century: Key developments included contouring and the creation of military surveying. Subjects include the Napoleonic Wars and the American Civil War.

* The 20th century: Extended features on the First and Second World Wars, featuring maps detailing trench warfare and aerial reconnaissance. Much of the chapter centers on the period from 1945 to the present day, including special sections on the Vietnam War and the Gulf Wars. 1 vol, 216 pgs 2016 UK, CONWAY PUBLISHING

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.

This volume explores how Sevastopol became the crucible of conflict over three major engagements - the Crimean War, the Russian Civil War, and World War II - witnessing the death and destruction of countless armies yet creating the indomitable 'spirit of Sevastopol.' Weaves together first-hand interviews, detailed operational reports, and battle analysis. 1 vol, 800 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-210720 Mott, Christopher FORMLESS EMPIRE, THE: A Short History of Diplomacy and Warfare in Central Asia Central Asia, a vast region extending from eastern Russia and across Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgystan, Mongolia, and western China, has its own tradition of foreign policy rooted in the ancient nomadic culture of many of its peoples as well as the region's distinctive geography. From the thundering hooves of Mongol or Cossack cavalry across the steppes to the clanking of tanks on parade in Moscow or Beijing, elements of this system still cast a shadow on the region at the heart of Earth's largest continent.

By tracing the evolution of Central Asian warfare and diplomacy through a series of historical examples, ranging from the ancient Xiongnu people and medieval Mongol Empire to the fall of the Soviet Union, historian Christopher Mott argues that the original system of informal relationships, indirect rule, and rapid military movement did not entirely fade from the region with the eclipse of the nomadic powers during the Middle Ages. In fact, many states like China, Iran, and Russia had already been influenced by nomadic people, and in so doing adapted their own diplomatic and military policies accordingly.

The book demonstrates that regional histories can show us the variety of political possibilities in the past and how they were adapted to changing circumstances-a point made even more important by the rapid changes facing global security and new forms of empire building. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2015 US, WESTHOLME PUBLISHING

1-210080 Ortner, Dr Christian and Fichtenbauer, Peter A HISTORY OF THE AUSTRIAN ARMY: from Maria Theresa to the Present Day The armed forces and the armies that have been formed, deployed and sent to war throughout Austria's history - encompassing, as it has, a range of territorial dimensions and changing political structures - reflect better than any other institution on the political developments within the nation. The armed and 'uniformly' equipped soldier still stands as the embodiment of the state's monopoly on the use of force and the uniform itself is of particular importance in this respect because it identifies him as a member of a very special fellowship. The 'Emperor's Coat', which often comes up in a historical context, has long since been supplanted by the uniform of the Republic but this still remains the most prominent distinguishing feature separating the soldier from the civilian population, and from members of other armies.

The development of the uniforms of Austria's soldiers spans more than three hundred years. Breaks and pauses in the design of the soldiers' dress were the result of adjusting to the practicalities of duty and battle requirements but also of maintaining a pleasing appearance and observing fashion trends. On the other hand, there were efforts to retain continuity and traditions, which in some cases have survived the passage of centuries and are still visible today.

Now, for the first time, the development and complexity of Austria's uniforms, previously known only to aficionados, is opened up to a wider audience in a publication that includes more than 300 original illustrations of uniforms from the 18th century to the present. This book presents pictorial documentation of the appearance of Austrian soldiers throughout the period with the support of essays on Austria's military history. The particularly well-executed illustrations by renowned artists come from the extensive archives of the Heeresgeschichtliche Museum in Vienna and are presented to the general public here for the first time. 1 vol, 304 pgs 2015 AUSTRIA, VERLAG MILITARIA

In late September of 9 AD, three Roman legions, while marching to suppress a distant tribal rebellion, were attacked in a four-day battle with the Germanic barbarians. The Romans, under the leadership of the province's governor, Publius Quinctilius Varus, were taken completely by surprise, betrayed by a member of their own ranks: the German officer and secret rebel leader, Arminius. The defeat was a heavy blow to both Rome's military and its pride. Though the disaster was ruthlessly avenged soon afterwards, later attempts at conquering the Germans were half-hearted at best. 1 vol, 272 pgs 2016 UK, PEN & SWORD

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.

1-212600 Armstrong, Jeremy EARLY ROMAN WARFARE: From the Regal Period to the First Punic War Traces the development of Rome's military might from its earliest discernible origins down to the First Punic War. He shows how her armies evolved from ad-hoc forces of warriors organized along clan lines and assembled for the city's survival, to the sophisticated organization of the legions that went on to dominate all of Italy and then (after the period covered) the entire Mediterranean world.

The author reviews both the literary sources and the latest archaeological evidence to provide a fresh analysis of Roman military organization, equipment, tactics, and strategy. He shows how Rome's military apparatus adapted to meet the changing strategic needs of new enemies and broader ambitions. 1 vol, 192 pgs 2016 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

1-210980 Chrystal, Paul ROMAN MILITARY DISASTERS: Dark Days and Lost Legions This book examines the paradoxical role lost battles and defeat played in the success of the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire.

Over some 1200 years, the Romans proved adept at learning from military disaster and this was key to their eventual success and hegemony. Roman Military Disasters covers the most pivotal and decisive defeats, from the Celtic invasion of 390 BC to Alaric's sack of Rome in AD 410. Paul Chrystal details the politics and strategies leading to each conflict, how and why the Romans were defeated, the tactics employed, the generals and the casualties. However, the unique and crucial element of the book is its focus on the aftermath and consequences of defeat and how the lessons learnt enabled the Romans, usually, to bounce back and win.

1-208370 Coombs-Hoar, Adrian EAGLES IN THE DUST: The Roman Defeat at Adrianopolis AD 378 In AD376 large groups of Goths, seeking refuge from the Huns, sought admittance to the Eastern Roman Empire. Emperor Valens took the strategic decision to grant them entry, hoping to utilize them as a source of manpower for his campaigns against Persia. The Goths had been providing good warriors to Roman armies for decades. However, mistreatment of the refugees by Roman officials led them to take up arms against their hosts.

The resultant battle near Adrianopolis in AD378, in which Valens lost his life, is regarded as one of the most significant defeats ever suffered by Roman arms. The Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus called it the worst massacre since Cannae, nearly 600 years previously. Modern historians have accorded it great significance both at a tactical level, due to the success of Gothic cavalry over the vaunted Roman infantry, and in strategic terms, often citing it as the beginning of the end for the Empire. 1 vol, 0 pgs 2015 UK, PEN & SWORD

But what was it like to live in one of these fortresses? What was the everyday experience of the legionary, centurion and commander? This book provides a fascinating insight into the inner mechanisms of the castrum and the people who maintained it. Using the fortresses at Chester, York, Caerleon, and others across the Empire, Copeland reconstructs the complex workings of these legionary camps and provides readers with the archaeological and literary evidence that gives us an insight into life behind the high walls. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2015 UK, AMBERLEY

1-212990 Crawford, Peter CONSTANTIUS II: Usurpers, Eunuchs and the Antichrist The reign of Constantius II has been overshadowed by that of his titanic father, Constantine the Great, and his cousin and successor, the pagan Julian. However, as Peter Crawford shows, Constantius deserves to be remembered as a very capable ruler in dangerous, tumultuous times.

When Constantine I died in in 337, the twenty-year-old Constantius and his two brothers, Constans and Constantine II, all recieved the title of Augustus to reign as equal co-emperors. In 340, however, Constantine II was killed in a fraternal civil war with Constans.

The two remaining brothers shared the Empire for the next ten years, with Constantius ruling Egypt and the Asian provinces, constantly threatened by the Sassanid Persian Empire. However, Constans in turn was killed by the usurper Magentius in 350. Constantius refused to accept this fait accompli, made war on Magentius and defeated him at the battles of Mursa Major and Mons Seleucus, leading him to commit suicide.

Constantius, was now sole ruler of the Empire but it was an empire beset by external enemies. Constantius campaigned successfully against the Germanic Alamanni along the Rhine and the Quadi and Sarmatians across the Danube, as well as against the Persians in the East, though with more mixed results. In 360 he elevated his cousin Julian to the rank of Caesar (effectively deputy emperor) and left him to govern the West, while he concentrated on the Persian threat.

Julian defeated the Alamanni in battle but was then proclaimed Augustus by his troops. Constantius was marching back to meet this threat to his rear when he fell ill and died. Having done so much to defend and preserve the empire, his dying act was to attempt to avert further civil war by declaring Julian his rightful heir. 1 vol, 384 pgs 2016 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-210570 Dawson, Timothy and Sumner, Graham BY THE EMPEROR'S HAND: Military Dress and Court Regalia in the Later Romano-Byzantine Empire By the sixth century AD, the Roman Empire already had many hundreds of years of accumulated ceremonial embedded in its government, and practical science embodied in its army. Includes 16 color paintings and illustrated throughout.

The absorption of Christianity into state processes had pushed the development of court ceremonial apace and particularly driven its embodiment and display in ever more opulent regalia. The regalia embraced not only garments of distinctive form and decoration, but also both dress and non-dress accessories. It was crucial in displaying rank and function on an everyday basis, yet was also varied considerably for special occasions. Military dress largely reflected forms current amongst ordinary men, but with an emphasis on functionality, eschewing the excesses of fashion.

Detailed literary and artistic sources, archaeology and insights derived from reconstruction and practical experience has gone into creating an incredibly lavish picture of the clothing of the longest-enduring political entity in history. 1 vol, 304 pgs 2016 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

1-212000 De santis, Marc ROME SEIZES THE TRIDENT: The Defeat of Carthaginian Seapower and the Forging of the Roman Empire Seapower played a greater part in ancient empire building than is often appreciated. The Punic Wars, especially the first, were characterized by massive naval battles. The Romans did not even possess a navy of their own when war broke out between them and the Carthaginians in Sicily in 264 BC.

Prior to that, the Romans had relied upon several South Italian Greek cities to provide ships in the same way as its other allies provided soldiers to serve with the legions. The Romans were nevertheless determined to acquire a navy that could challenge that of Carthage. They used a captured galley as a model, reverse engineered it, and constructed hundreds of copies.

The Romans used this new navy to wrench maritime superiority from the Carthaginians, most notably at the Battle of Ecnomus where they prevailed through the use of novel tactics. Although not decisive on its own, Rome's new found naval power was a vital component in their ultimate victory in each of the three Punic Wars. 1 vol, 272 pgs 2016 UK, PEN & SWORD

The engagement took place during the 1814 campaign. After Napoleon had retreated from Russia and lost the Battle of Leipzig, the allied armies had invaded France. Napoleon won a number of victories (such as the battle of Reims), but had little chance of success, with just 70,000 men against half a million allied forces.

Napoleon had achieved a remarkable victory with troops whose morale had suffered due to heavy casualties and the defeats at Craonne and Laon. According to the historian F.W.O. Maycock, success at Reims was 'surely one of the greatest triumphs of [Napoleon's] remarkable career, and speaks volumes for his powers as a leader of men.'

Napoleon once again interposed between the forces of Blucher and Schwarzenberg, putting him in position to move on the latter's line of communications. Reims would be Napoleon's final victory in the Campaign of 1814.

The campaign ended with the allies taking Paris on 31 March and Napoleon's abdication on 6 April. 1 vol, 104 pgs 2014 FRANCE, HISTORIC ONE EDITIONS

1-206290 Elliott, Paul LEGIONS IN CRISIS: Transformation of the Roman Soldier AD 192-284 The third century AD was a turbulent and testing time for the Roman Empire. A new and powerful foe in the east had risen up to challenge Rome directly. Barbarians on the northern frontiers were now more aggressive and more numerous than before and internally the population of the empire had to contend with rampant inflation and a series of terrible plagues.

Unfortunately, the chaos became magnified by a lack of continuity on the imperial throne. The army had real political power in the third century, making and unmaking emperors as it saw fit. It had been aided in this by Septimius Severus, the African emperor who had won out in the civil wars following Commodus' assassination. He increased the army's pay and granted other privileges.

While the army gained rapidly in size, stature, and political savvy during the reign of Septimius Severus, it also accelerated a material transformation. Armor, shields, helmets, swords and javelins all began to be replaced with new styles. This book comparing their construction, use, and effectiveness to the more familiar types of Roman kit used by soldiers fighting the earlier Dacian and Marcomannic Wars.

What did this transformation in military technology mean for the tactical choices used on the battlefield? Although the outcome had looked in doubt, the army and the empire it protected weathered the storm to emerge into the fourth century fully able to tackle the challenges of a new age. 1 vol, 176 pgs 2014 UK, FRONTHILL MEDIA

1-206580 Grainger, John D THE RISE OF THE SELEUKID EMPIRE (323-223 BC): Seleukos I to Seleukos III The Seleukid kingdom was the largest state in the world for a century and more between Alexander's death and the rise of Rome. It was ruled for all that time by a succession of able kings, but broke down twice, before eventually succumbing to dynastic rivalries, and simultaneous external invasions and internal grasps for independence.

The first king, Seleukos I, established a pattern of rule which was unusually friendly towards his subjects, and his policies promoted the steady growth of wealth and population in many areas which had been depopulated when he took them over. In particular the dynasty was active in founding cities from Asia Minor to Central Asia. Its work set the social and economic scene of the Middle East for many centuries to come. Yet these kings had to be warriors too as they defended their realm from jealous neighbors.

The first volume relates the remarkable twists of fortune and daring that saw Seleukos, an officer in an elite guard unit, emerge from the wars of the diadochi (Alexander's successors) in control of the largest and richest part of the empire of the late Alexander the Great. After his conquests and eventual murder, we then see how his successors continued his policies, including the repeated wars with the Ptolemaic rules of Egypt over control of Syria. The volume ends with the deep internal crisis and the wars of the brothers, which left only a single member of the dynasty alive in 223 BC. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2014 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-211190 Harrel, John S THE NISIBIS WAR: The Defence of the Roman East AD 337-363 The war of 337-363 (which the author dubs the 'Nisibis War'), was an exception to the traditional Roman reliance on a strategic offensive to bring about a decisive battle. Instead, the Emperor Constantius II adopted a defensive strategy and conducted a mobile defense based upon small frontier (limitanei) forces defending fortified cities, supported by limited counteroffensives by the Field Army of the East.

These methods successfully checked Persian assaults for 24 years. However, when Julian became emperor his access to greater resources tempted him to abandon mobile defense in favor of a major invasion aimed at regime change in Persia. Although he reached the Persian capital, Ctesiphon, he failed to take it, was decisively defeated in battle and killed. The Romans subsequently resumed and refined the mobile defense, allowing the Eastern provinces to survive the fall of the Western Empire.

1-211680 MacDowell, Simon THE VANDALS: Conquerors of the Roman Empire On 31 December AD 406, a group of German tribes crossed the Rhine, pierced the Roman defensive limes and began a rampage across Roman Gaul, sacking cities such as Metz, Arras, and Strasbourg. Foremost amongst them were the Vandals and their search for a new homeland took them on the most remarkable odyssey. The Romans were unable to stop them and their closest allies, the Alans, marching the breadth of Gaul, crossing the Pyrenees and making themselves masters of Spain.

However, this Kingdom of the Vandals and Alans soon came under intense pressure from Rome's Visigothic allies. In 429, under their new king, Gaiseric, they crossed the straits of Gibraltar to North Africa. They quickly overran this rich Roman province and established a stable kingdom. Taking to the seas they soon dominated the Western Mediterranean and raided Italy, famously sacking Rome itself in 455. Eventually, however, they were utterly conquered by Belisarius in 533 and vanished from history. Focus on the evolution of Vandal armies and warfare. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2016 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-210420 Matthew, Christopher AN INVINCIBLE BEAST: Understanding the Hellenistic Pike Phalanx in Action The Hellenistic pike-phalanx was a true military innovation, transforming the face of warfare in the ancient world. For nearly 200 years, from the rise of the Macedonians as a military power in the mid-fourth century BC, to their defeat at the hands of the Romans at Pydna in 168BC, the pike-wielding heavy infantryman (the phalangite) formed the basis of nearly every Hellenistic army to deploy on battlefields stretching from Italy to India.

And yet, despite this dominance, and the vast literature dedicated to detailing the history of the Hellenistic world, there remains fierce debate among modern scholars about how infantry combat in this age was actually conducted.

This critically examines phalanx combat by using techniques such as physical re-creation, experimental archaeology, and ballistics testing, and then comparing the findings of this testing to the ancient literary, artistic and archaeological evidence, as well as modern theories. The result is the most comprehensive and up-to-date study of what heavy infantry combat was like in the age of Alexander the Great and his Successors. 1 vol, 368 pgs 2015 UK, PEN & SWORD

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

1-210210 Noble, Duncan DAWN OF THE HORSE WARRIORS: Chariot and Cavalry Warfare, 3000-600BC The domestication of the horse revolutionized warfare, granting unprecedented strategic and tactical mobility, allowing armies to strike with terrifying speed. The horse was first used as the motive force for chariots and then, in a second revolution, as mounts for the first true cavalry.

The period covered encompasses the development of the first clumsy ass-drawn chariots in Sumer (of which the author built and tested a working replica for the BBC); takes in the golden age of chariot warfare resulting from the arrival of the domesticated horse and the spoked wheel, then continues down through the development of the first regular cavalry force by the Assyrians and on to their eventual overthrow by an alliance of Medes and the wild semi-nomadic horsemen from the Eurasian steppe the Scythians.

Also draws on his vast experience as a horseman and experimental archaeologist to discuss the development of horsemanship, horse management, and training and the significant developments in horse harness and saddles. 1 vol, 240 pgs 2015 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-211560 Rainer Nickel A STRATEGIST IN EXILE: Xenophon and the Death of Thucydides Thucydides was the chronicler of the almost 30-year long Peloponnesian war, which came to a close with Sparta's victory over Athens in 404 BC. His famous historical work was preserved, but ends abruptly many ears before the end of the war. It was continued decades later by Xenophon, with his 'Greek history,' Hellenica.

Following Athens defeat by Sparta, an Athenian court judged Thucydides to be responsible for the defeat, forcing him to flee his hometown and live on the northern coast of the Aegean Sea until the end of the Peloponnesian War. After his return from exile, he meets with the young Xenophon, but disappears without a trace shortly after. This book covers Xenophon's search for Thucydides, the 'failed strategist,' in order to protect his friend from the Thirty Tyrant's regime of terror, as well as save some important historical documents which he had placed in Thucydides' safe keeping. The narrative is based on the linking of historical reports of the operations, plausible constructions and imagined recollections in order to create a coherent narrative, allowing us a first-hand insight into the operations based on fact, not fiction. 1 vol, 144 pgs 2016 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-208320 Symons, Sarah ROMAN WALES When the Roman army invaded Wales in AD 74, they had to build a continuous chain of fortresses throughout the length and breadth of the country because of the fierce opposition of the tribal population, the Celts. The clash of cultures that resulted gave birth to Wales as we know it today, as the Romans established prosperous towns and introduced their way of life, landscaping, architecture and education to the locals.

Wales was an important part of the Roman Empire, and grew to flourish as one of its wealthy provinces. From Carmarthen to Aberystwyth, Carleon to Carwent, many places in Wales today contain links and fascinating clues to this ancient civilization. Cooking utensils, jewelry and Roman baths have been uncovered at these sites, giving us a glimpse back into the exciting era of the Roman occupation, and how these people lived, worked and played.

1-210351 Syvanne, Ilkka MILITARY HISTORY OF LATE ROME 284-361 This ambitious series gives the reader a comprehensive narrative of late Roman military history from 284-641. Each volume (five are planned) gives a detailed account of the changes in organization, equipment, strategy and tactics among both the Roman forces and her enemies in the relevant period, while also giving a detailed but accessible account of the campaigns and battles. B/w maps and battle diagrams.

Volume I covers the period 284-361, starting with recovery from the 'third-century crisis' and the formation of the Tetrarchy. Constantine's civil wars and stabilization are also major themes, with the pattern repeated under his sons. Constantius II's wars against the usurper Magnentius, the Danubian tribes and the Sassanid Persians illustrate the serious combination of internal and external threats the Empire faced at this time.

The author discusses these and the many other dramatic military events in their full context and puts forward some interesting conclusions on strategic and tactical developments. He argues, for example, that the Roman shift from infantry to cavalry as the dominant arm occurred considerably earlier than usually accepted. Anyone with an interest in the military history of this period will find it both informative and thought-provoking. 1 vol, 320 pgs 2015 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-949036 Various PRETORIEN # 36 Contents include: L'histoire fourmille d'exemples qui montrent que, quelle que soit son importance, un avantage n'est jamais durablement acquis. Nous avions laisse, dans Pretorien # 34, le puissant roi de Sparte, Agesilas II, au lendemain de ses victoires de Nemee puis de Coronee. Dans un Peloponnese divise, ce grand roi parviendra a confirmer sa domination sur les cites grecques. Mais, helas, la realite finit par prendre le dessus.

Trop peu nombreuse et meme alliee aux autres Argiens, l'armee spartiate ne peut vaincre les puissants hoplites de Thebes. La defaite de Mantinee est la consequence de cette situation. Mais, le beotarque de Thebes etant mort durant l'affrontement, la paix profitera tout de meme a la ville de Sparte. C'est sur le declin de cette ville, desormais affaiblie et isolee, que nous ouvrons cette revue.

Cette regle vaut egalement dans bien d'autres domaines. Par exemple, lors des croisades provoquees, Pretorien l'a deja evoque, par les Byzantins qui craignaient pour leur existence face a la progression des Turcs seldjoukides. Las, la quatrieme croisade se retourne contre Constantinople dont elle chasse la dynastie grecque pour la remplacer par Baudouin Ier, premier empereur latin d'Orient. Un chef-d'oeuvre Deugene Delacroix, disseque dans ce numero, permet de comprendre le sens de cette lutte fratricide tres eloignee de l'enjeu initial des croisades.

Autre nation dominante, les Romains opposaient une organisation parfaitement huilee face aux hordes barbares. Comme ils l'ont fait ailleurs, ils ont bati un mur infranchissable, le formidable limes dont les traces existent encore de nos jours. Le site d'Abusina, situe sur le Danube entre Ingolstadt et Regensburg, montre qu'il etait vain d'esperer contenir la progression des Germains. Les raids ennemis se multipliant, les Romains durent progressivement abandonner la region a partir de la fin du IIIe siecle de notre ere. Pretorien vous presente ce site et l'ingeniosite de ses batisseurs.

Comme nous le faisons regulierement, Pretorien revient sur l'equipement et l'organisation des armees de l'Antiquite en presentant, dans ce numero, le fantassin pretorien du Ier siecle et les suites armees de la meme periode. Paradoxalement, chefs barbares et generaux romains avaient recours aux memes unites d'elite puisees dans les rangs germains. Etrange anecdote qui prend toute sa saveur dans la suite de l'histoire.

Comme il le fait dans chaque numero, Pretorien vous propose a nouveau ses rubriques desormais traditionnelles. Notamment, pour notre page cinema, une evocation de l'admirable film de Laurence Olivier consacre en 1955 au terrible Richard III de Shakespeare. 1 vol, 68 pgs 2015 FRANCE, LCV

1-954096 Various ANCIENT WARFARE: Volume 9.6 Theme: The Aftermath of Battle

When we think about warfare in the ancient world, the first thing that probably pops into mind are images of men, clad in armor, fighting each other. Battle usually draws a lot of attention, and there have been many heated discussions about the nature and mechanics of combat. By comparison, there is often less interest in what happens after battle has been decided and the dust has settled. But the aftermath of conflict is no less interesting than the fight itself, as this issue of Ancient Warfare magazine will demonstrate.

1-212750 Verstraaten, Stef text by Jaspet Oorthuys ROMANS The Romans have left their mark on the history of Northwest Europe. But what did they really look like? What did they wear? How did a common Roman appear in everyday life? We do not really know this as Roman visual art (murals, images in relief, busts, and statues) represented mainly mythological figures and members of the elite.

Reenactors offer a key to this question as they bring into practice archaeological and historical research into Roman clothing and equipment. Over the past few years, Stef Verstraaten photographed reenactors, complete with their weaponry, religious attributes, and everyday objects in tremendous detail. 1 vol, 176 pgs 2016 NETHERLANDS, KARWANSARAY

1-211920 Vincent, Florent L'ARMEE DE CESAR PENDANT LA GUERRE DES GAULES Careful examination of the military organization of the Gauls: weapons, tactics and the soldiers used during their wars. Includes 15 color plates and 90 b/w illustrations.

The Gallic wars is a major event in the history of the West. It is therefore surprising that the history of men who one conducted this conquest was as little interested in historians of the past. Fortunately, the first archaeological excavations, initiated by Napoleon III, helped to deepen our knowledge of this period, limited until then in ancient written sources, and clarify our image of men of Caesar.

However, the representation of this army has long limited to the only legionnaire. However we know that many Gauls, allies of Rome, and mercenaries to the origins have contributed to the success of the Roman Eagles. Caesar himself mentioned in his writings. Now, thanks to the recent discovered archaeological and news analyses of ancient texts, we have a more accurate vision of the Caesarean army. Through a vast enriched synthesis, original iconography, and a series of unpublished plates of crisp details, the authors discuss all aspects of the daily lives of the men who created this army. 1 vol, 120 pgs 2016 FRANCE, HISTORIC ONE

1-84420 White, John F. The Roman Emperor Aurelian - Restorer of the World The ancient Sibylline prophecies had foretold that the Roman Empire would last for 1000 years. As the time for the expected dissolution approached in the middle of the third century AD, the empire was lapsing into chaos, with seemingly interminable civil wars over the imperial succession.

The western empire had seceded under a rebel emperor and the eastern empire was controlled by another usurper. Barbarians took advantage of the anarchy to kill and plunder all over the provinces. Yet within the space of just five years, the general, later emperor Aurelian had expelled all the barbarians from with the Roman frontiers, reunited the entire empire and inaugurated major reforms of the currency, pagan religion and civil administration.

His accomplishments have been hailed by classical scholars as those of a 'superman', yet Aurelian himself remains little known to a wider audience. His achievements enabled the Roman Empire to survive for another two centuries, ensuring a lasting legacy of Roman civilization for the successor European states. Without Aurelian, the 'Dark Ages' would probably have lasted centuries longer. This is a new, revised edition. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2016 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-212980 Kim Hjardar, Vegard Vike VIKINGS AT WAR A depiction of how the Vikings waged war: weapons technology, offensive and defensive warfare, military traditions and tactics, fortifications, ships, and command structure. It also portrays the Viking raids and conquest campaigns that brought the Vikings to virtually every corner of Europe and even to America.

Contains over 380 color illustrations including beautiful reconstruction drawings, maps, cross-section drawings of ships, line-drawings of fortifications, battle plan reconstructions, and photos of surviving artifacts including weapons and jewelry.

Currently in its fourth printing in Norwegian, the translation presented here makes it available for the first time in English. Awarded the Norwegian literary prize 'Saga Prize' in 2012.

Employing unorthodox and unpredictable strategies, which were hard for more organized forces to respond to, the most crucial element of the Viking's success was their basic strategy of evading the enemy by arriving by sea, then attacking quickly and with great force before withdrawing quickly.

Viking ships landed on almost every shore in the Western world during the 350 years that followed the introduction of the sail into the region, from the 9th to the 11th century. Viking ravages united the Spanish kingdoms and stopped Charlemagne and the Franks' advance in Europe. Wherever Viking ships roamed, enormous suffering followed in their wake, but the encounter between cultures changed both European and Nordic societies. 1 vol, 400 pgs 2016 US, CASEMATE

1-211850 Storr, Jim KING ARTHUR'S WARS King Arthur's Wars' describes one of the biggest archaeological finds of our times; yet there is nothing new to see. There are secrets hidden in plain sight. We speak English today, because the Anglo-Saxons took over most of post-Roman Britain. How did that happen? There is little evidence: not much archaeology, and even less written history.

There is, however, a huge amount of speculation. 'King Arthur's Wars' brings an entirely new approach to the subject. The answers are out there, in the countryside, waiting to be found. Months of field work and map study allow us to understand, for the first time, how the Anglo-Saxons conquered England; county by county and decade by decade. 'King Arthur's Wars' exposes what the landscape and the place names tell us. As a result, we can now know far more about this 'Dark Age'.

What is so special about Essex? Why is Buckinghamshire an odd shape? Why is the legend of King Arthur so special to us? Why don't Cumbrian farmers use English numbers when they count sheep? Why don't we know where Camelot was? Why did the Romano-British stop eating oysters? What does this have to do with Napoleon's Ulm campaign of 1805, or the Prusso-Danish War of 1864? 'King Arthur's Wars' tells that story. Includes 96 figures, maps, and 16pp color illustrations. 1 vol, 328 pgs 2016 UK, HELION & COMPANY

1-972016 Campbell, David 016 TEMPLAR KNIGHT vs MAMLUK WARRIOR 1218-50 Step into the violent world of the 13th century, where the European states of the Levant battled with Muslim powers for control of Jerusalem. At the cutting edge of the conflict were the elite fighting men of the Crusader and Egyptian armies -- the Knights Templar and Mamluk warriors, respectively.

The Knights Templar were the most famous and formidable of all the Western Christian military orders, whilst the Mamluks were a slave caste whose fighting prowess had elevated them to the point of holding real political clout, threatening their Ayyubid masters who relied on them so desperately for military success.

This book draws on the latest research to tell the story of three key engagements from the Fifth Crusade to the Seventh Crusade. It reveals the extraordinary ferocity with which these holy wars were fought, and how the combats between Knights Templar and Mamluk warriors came to shape the political future of the region. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2015 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-212380 Harwood, Brian FIXER AND FIGHTER: The Life of Hubert de Burgh, Earl of Kent, 1170 - 1243 Hubert de Burgh rose from obscure beginnings to become one of the most powerful men in England. He loyally served first King John and then the young Henry III and played a crucial role in saving the Plantagenet dynasty when it was at its most vulnerable.

During King John's disastrous wars in France, Hubert held Chinon castle against the besieging French for a whole year. He remained loyal when the Barons rebelled against John and, when they invited French invaders to intervene, Hubert successfully held Dover Castle for the king against a siege led by the French Prince Louis. After John's death, he held it for the new king, 9-year old Henry, against a renewed siege. In August 1217 he struck the final blow against the French invasion, which still held London, when he defeated a powerful fleet carrying French reinforcements at the naval Battle of Sandwich.

Hubert continued to serve Henry III, making important reforms as Justiciar of England and leading military campaigns against the Welsh Prince Lewellyn. He eventually lost favor due to the machinations of his rivals and narrowly avoided execution but was eventually reconciled with his king and able to die a peaceful death. Incredibly, this is the first full-length biography of this remarkable man. 1 vol, 176 pgs 2016 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-210200 Romane, Julian BYZANTIUM TRIUMPHANT: The Military History of the Byzantines 959-1025 Byzantium Triumphant describes in detail the wars of the Byzantine emperors Nicephorus II Phocas, his nephew and assassin John I Tzimiskes, and Basil II. The operations, battles, and drama of their various bitter struggles unfold, depicting the new energy and improved methods of warfare developed in the late 10th century. These emperors were at war on all fronts, fighting for survival and dominance against enemies including the Arab caliphates, Bulgars (Basil II was dubbed by later authors 'the Bulgar Slayer'), and the Holy Roman Empire, not to mention dealing with civil wars and rebellions.

Drawing on the evidence of Byzantine military manuals, this offers a detailed understanding of the Byzantine tactics, organization, training, and doctrine. While essentially a military history, there is, inevitably with the Byzantine emperors, a healthy dose of court intrigue, assassination, and political skullduggery too. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2015 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-210220 Stanton, Charles MEDIEVAL MARITIME WARFARE Following the fall of Rome, the sea is increasingly the stage upon which the human struggle of western civilization is played out. In a world of few roads and great disorder, the sea is the medium on which power is projected and wealth sought. Yet this confused period in the history of maritime warfare has rarely been studied - it is little known and even less understood.

Depicts the development of maritime warfare from the end of the Roman Empire to the dawn of the Renaissance, detailing the wars waged in the Mediterranean by the Byzantines, Muslims, Normans, Crusaders, the Italian maritime republics, Angevins and Aragonese as well as those fought in northern waters by the Vikings, English, French, and the Hanseatic League. 1 vol, 368 pgs 2015 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-34352 Sumption, Jonathan HUNDRED YEARS WAR, THE:Trial by Battle V2 Divided Houses Book is heavily researched from both primary and secondary sources, b/w illust, good maps, index.

A succession of catastrophes in the middle years of the fourteenth century brought France to the brink of destruction. The bankruptcy of the French state and a bitter civil war within the royal family were followed by the defeat and capture of the King of France by the Black Prince at Poitiers. A peasant revolt and a violent revolution in Paris completed the tragedy. In a humiliating treaty of partition France ceded more than a third of its territory to Edward III of England. Not for sixty years would the English again come so close to total victory.

Yet the theme of the volume is not destruction, but survival. France's great cities, provincial towns and rural communities resisted where its leaders failed. They withstood the sustained savagery of the soldiers and the free companies of brigands to undo most of Edward III's work in the following generation. England's triumphs proved to be brittle and short-lived.

1-34353 Sumption, Jonathan HUNDRED YEARS WAR, THE:Trial by Battle Book is heavily researched from both primary and secondary sources, b/w illust, good maps, index.

This long-awaited third volume of Jonathan Sumption's monumental history of the war narrates the period from 1369 to 1393, a span marked by the slow decline of English fortunes and the subsequent rise of the French. The English were condemned to see the conquests of the previous thirty years overrun by the armies of the king of France in less than ten. Edward III was succeeded by a vulnerable child, destined to grow into a neurotic and unstable adult presiding over a divided nation. England's citizenry was being asked to pay for a long and expensive war, soldiers were becoming disenchanted, and the Peasants' Revolt of 1381 evidenced the social unrest in the land. However, France too paid a heavy price for her success. Beneath the surface splendor the French government sat poised at the edge of bankruptcy and the population subsisted in fear and insecurity. The inexperience of Charles VI and his gradual relapse into insanity divided the French political world, as the king's relatives competed for the plunder of the state, sowing the seeds of disintegration and civil war in the following century. 1 vol, 1024 pgs 20011 US, UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA PRESS
