1-985076 Campbell, Duncan 076 THE RISE OF IMPERIAL ROME: AD 14-193 Explores the course of Roman wars that ensued as successive emperors sought to extend the empire -- including Claudius' conquest of Britannia, Domitian's campaigns on the Rhine and the Danube, Trajan's Dacian Wars and Parthian War, Marcus Aurelius' Marcomannic Wars, and the Jewish Wars. The period covered in this book ends with the consolidation of the Roman frontiers along the Rhine and Danube.

Provides a summary of the strengths, limitations, and evolving character of the Roman army during the first two centuries AD, as well as those of the forces of Rome's enemies across the Rhine and Danube in Germany and Romania, and in the East, in the form of the Parthian empire of Iraq/Iran. Fully illustrated with photographs depicting the emperors, armies and enemies, and the remains of Roman fortifications and public buildings, plus informative full-color maps, this is the epic story of the wars waged by a succession of emperors during the period in which Imperial Rome reached its zenith. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2013 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-985073 Edwards, Aaron 073 NORTHERN IRELAND TROUBLES: Operation Banner 1969-2007 The British campaign in Northern Ireland remains one of the most controversial actions in recent history. This new book considers the strategic, operational, and tactical aspects of what become the longest ever campaign embarked upon by British troops. The 38-year campaign, codenamed Operation Banner, went through a number of phases. It began as a peacekeeping operation, morphed into a counter-insurgency operation, and ended as a policing and counter-terrorism operation. Banner was massive in scale. No less than 10,000 troops were on active service throughout the campaign and at one point as many as 30,000 men and women were deployed on Ulster's streets. Drawing on extensive new research, this book presents an authoritative introduction to the 'Troubles,' providing a strategic analysis of the successes and failures of the campaign. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2011 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-985075 Femont-Barnes, Gregory 075 THE SOVIET-AFGHAN WAR 1979-89 The Soviet invasion of its neighbor Afghanistan in December 1979 sparked a bloody nine-year conflict in that country until Soviet forces withdrew in 1988-89, dooming the communist Afghanistan government to defeat at the hands of the Mujahideen, the Afghan popular resistance backed by the USA and other powers. The Soviet invasion had enormous implications on the global stage; it prompted the US Senate to refuse to ratify the hard-won SALT II arms-limitation treaty, and the USA and 64 other countries boycotted the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics.

For Afghanistan, the invasion served to prolong the interminable civil war that pitted central government against the regions and faction against faction. The country remains locked in conflict over 30 years later, with no end in sight. Featuring specially drawn mapping and drawing upon a wide range of sources, this succinct account explains the origins, history and consequences of the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan, thereby shedding new light on the more recent history - and prospects - of that troubled country. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2012 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-985077 Fletcher, John 077 The Wars of Spanish American Independence 1809-29 In 1808, Napoleon Bonaparte treacherously outmaneuvered the corrupt Spanish Bourbons and installed his brother Joseph as King of Spain, igniting the flames of war across the Iberian Peninsula.

Far across the Atlantic, this event lit the fuse for a war that raged for the better part of two decades as Spain's colonies grasped the opportunity to seize their own independence. The Wars of South American Independence began with confused, scattered uprisings in 1809 and ended with a half-hearted expedition against Mexico in 1829.

The South American revolutions heralded Spain's downfall as a world power and marked the first expression of an expansionist foreign policy by the United States of America. Featuring specially commissioned full-color maps and drawing upon the latest research, this volume traces the military events of the Independence period and sheds new light on the leaders, men, and battles that reshaped the hemisphere. The myriad campaigns, often uncoordinated and occurring thousands of miles apart, are brought together and related to the wider context, in this engaging introduction to a crucial period in the history of the Americas.

1-985072 Fremont-Barnes, Gregory 072 JACOBITE REBELLION 1745-46 The Jacobite Rebellion was the final attempt of the House of Stuart to re-establish itself on the British throne and it saw the death throes of the independent martial prowess of the Highland clans. No event in British history has been more heavily romanticized, but Gregory Fremont-Barnes succeeds in stripping away the myths to reveal the key events of this crucial period. From questions of dynastic succession to religious dominance, the events leading to the Rebellion are carefully explained and analyzed, drawing upon a host of primary research. From the landing of Bonnie Prince Charlie to the battle of Culloden, this book offers a complete overview of the Rebellion, complete with detailed maps and beautiful period illustrations.

1-985061 Lynch, Michael 061 CHINESE CIVIL WAR 1945-1949 Out of the ashes of Imperial China arose two new contenders to lead a reformed nation; the Chinese Nationalist Party, the Kuomintang, and the Chinese Communist Party. In 1927, the inevitable clash between these two political parties led to a bitter civil war that would last for 23 years, through World War II and into the Cold War period.

The brutal struggle finally concluded when Communist forces captured Nanjing, capital of the Nationalist Republic of China, irrevocably altering the course of China's future.

Dr. Michael Lynch sheds light on this cruel civil war that ultimately led to the establishment of the People's Republic of China. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2009 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-985074 Schneid, Frederick C. 074 THE SECOND WAR OF ITALIAN UNIFICATION 1859-61 The culmination of decades of nationalist aspiration and cynical Realpolitik, the Second War of Italian Unification saw Italy transformed from a patchwork of minor states dominated by the Habsburg Austrians into a unified kingdom under the Piedmontese House of Savoy. Unlike many existing accounts, which approach the events of 1859-61 from a predominantly French perspective, this study draws upon a huge breadth of sources to examine the conflict as a critical event in Italian history.

A concise explanation of the origins of the war is followed by a wide-ranging survey of the forces deployed and the nature and course of the fighting - on land and at sea - and the consequences for those involved are investigated. This is a groundbreaking study of a conflict that was of critical significance not only for Italian history but also for the development of 19th-century warfare. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2011 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING
