War of the Austrian Succession

1-930289 S&T 289 WAR OF THE AUSTRIAN SUCCESSION War of the Austrian Succession is a wargame of Frederick the Great's first military campaign, the First Silesian War of 1740-42. This was the opening War of the Austrian Succession which eventually involved the major powers of Europe. The intent of the game is to show operational level warfare in the 18th century Age of Kings. There are two sides in the game, Prussia and its allies (the Coalition), and Austria and its allies (Habsburgs).

The map portrays the area in Central Europe where the original campaign took place; each hex on the map represents about 7.5 miles across. Each unit represents a brigade or wing of an army (approximately 4,000 - 12,000 men and their equipment), and each turn represents one or two months of operations, depending on the season.

Components: One 22x34-inch map and 280 counters.

Other Articles:
* Battle of Cherbourg: The 1944 battle for this critical port city in Normandy fought between the US and German armies.
* Burmese Civil Wars: The whole story of all the internal conflicts that have rocked this Southeast Asian nation since 1948.
* The Catalan Grand Company: The story of what is generally considered to have been the single-most successful mercenary outfit in all of history (AD 1302-88).

1-930290 S&T 290 ANGOLA Angola is a simulation of the 1987-88 campaign which was the culmination of the civil war in that country during the height of the Cold War. This campaign saw major offensives by both sides, with considerable intervention by the armed forces of Cuba and South Africa. Among other things, Angola saw some of the biggest armored actions of the Cold War.

The game is operational level. Each player commands the forces of several different factions, each faction representing a major entity in this particular conflict whose goal was to gain control of as much of Angola as possible while inflicting decisive losses on the enemy. Command control is a critical factor, and the game uses a variant of the 'Boots' system to model this.

Each game turn represents about one month of operations. The map features all of Angola and the adjoining border regions of Southwest Africa and Zaire. The map scale is approximately 31 miles (50 kilometers) across each hexagon; each brigade or regiment represents from about 1,000 to 3,000 men, depending on the army. A battalion is 300-900 men, whereas a cadre represents small teams of soldiers.

Components: One 22' x 34' map & 228 counters

1-209500 Harding, Richard THE EMERGENCE OF BRITAIN'S GLOBAL NAVAL SUPREMACY: The War of 1739-1748 The British involvement in the war of 1739-1748 has been generally neglected. Standing between the great victories of Marlborough in the War of Spanish Succession [1701-1713] and the even greater victories of the Seven Years War [1756-1763], it has been dismissed as inconclusive and incompetently managed. This book brings together the political and operational conduct of the war to explore its contribution to a critical development in British history during the 18th century -- the emergence of Britain as the paramount global naval power.

The war posed a unique set of problems for British politicians, statesmen and servicemen. They had to overcome domestic and diplomatic crises, culminating in the rebellion of 1745 and the threat of French invasion. Yet, far from being incompetent, these people handled the crises and learned a great deal about the conduct of global warfare. The changes they made and decisions they took prepared Britain for the decisive Anglo-French clash of arms in the Seven Years War. In this misunderstood war lie some of the key factors that made Britain the greatest naval power for the next 150 years. 1 vol, 392 pgs 2013 US, BOYDEL & BREWER

1-206471 Wilson, David THE FRENCH WAR OF THE AUSTRIAN SUCCESSION 1740-1748 - Volume 1: Organisation, Uniforms & Equipment Another nicely done Partizan Press uniform guide. Thicker than most at 300 pages.

Provides accurate information for the French army during the War of the Austrian Succession and as such it is relevant to that time frame. The uniforms were basically same from the late 1720's till after the Seven Years War (except for the addition of lapels to infantry uniforms in the late 1750's).

They took a more austere appearance following the clothing regulations of 1730's, which reflected both moral ideals against ostentation with just a little bit of economy -- the heavy embroidery on the officers coats, the colored waistcoats and breeches disappeared, except in the foreign units, but then again, the regulations were never completely respected. 1 vol, 300 pgs 2014 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS
