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

The games include:
* Boots on the Ground: Company Level Actions in the early 21st Century
* An Isolated Outpost: Six Months in the Sahara
* Eight Years in a Distant Country: Soviet involvement in Afghanistan
* Ovambo: Counter-insurgency in South West Africa
* Good Morning Vietnam: LBJ's War 1965-68
* Flying Column: The Irish Troubles 1920-211 vol, 116 pgs 2018 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

To the 20 existing Sardinian infantry regiments were added 46, to 9 cavalry 10 more, and 26 battalions to 10 of Bersaglieri.

1-216250 MOLLWITZ and CHOTUSITZ: Battles of the First Silesian War Wargame. Two battles in one box:

The latest installment of the BAR series contains the first two battles of Frederick the Great's career as he began to forge his legacy as the greatest general of his generation. But be aware, this is not the Prussian Army of the Seven Year's War!

At Mollwitz (April 10, 1741) King Frederick II has been outmaneuvered by FM Neipperg. The plodding Prussians must advance over snowy fields to assault the waiting Austrian infantry and escape the entrapment. The Austrian player, with superior cavalry, must use that cavalry to slow down or distract the Prussian infantry before they devastate their Austrian counterparts. Each side has their strengths (and weaknesses) and must seek to maximize them to their benefit before time runs out. And, there is always the possibility that Frederick will flee the battlefield...

At Chotusitz (May 17, 1743), the Austrian army under Prince Charles has again outmaneuvered Frederick and hopes to annihilate the isolated part of his army. The pressure is on as the Austrians must attack quickly before the bulk of the Prussian army arrive as reinforcements. This is a finely matched battle with the Austrians as the attackers!

Both battles are one map in size with less than the usual number of counters. Chotusitz is roughly the size of the BAR game of Lobositz whereas Mollwitz has only 2/3 of the counters of Chotusitz.1 vol, 1 pgs 2018 US, CLASH OF ARMS

1-216280 Knetsch, Joe HISTORY OF THE SEMINOLE WAR: 1849-1858 Spanning a period of over forty years (1817-1858), the three Seminole Wars were America's longest, costliest, and deadliest Indian wars, surpassing the more famous ones fought in the West.

After an uneasy peace following the conclusion of the second Seminole War in 1842, a series of hostile events followed by a string of murders in 1849 and 1850 made confrontation inevitable. The war was also known as Billy Bowlegs' War because Billy Bowlegs (Holata Micco) was the main Seminole leader in this the last Indian war to be fought east of the Mississippi River.

Pushed by increasing encroachment into their territory he led a raid near Fort Myers. A series of violent skirmishes ensued. The vastness of the Floridian wilderness and the difficulties of the terrain and climate caused problems for the army, but they had learnt lessons from the second war and amongst other new tactics employed greater use of boats, eventually securing victory through cutting off food supplies.

History of the Third Seminole War is a detailed narrative of the war and its causes, containing numerous firsthand accounts from participants in the war, derived from virtually all the available primary sources, collected over many years. Written in a clear, easy-to-follow style, the work is intended for both a general and scholarly audience and will be of value to those interested in Florida history, American history in general, military history, Native American studies, and nineteenth century subjects.1 vol, 288 pgs 2018 UK, CASEMATE

1-59600 Hibbert, Christopher editor RECOLLECTIONS OF RIFLEMAN HARRIS, THE: Memoir The Recollections of Rifleman Harris is a memoir published in 1848 of the experiences of an enlisted soldier in the 95th Regiment of Foot in the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars. The eponymous soldier was Benjamin Randell Harris, a private who joined the regiment in 1803 and served in many of the early campaigns in the Peninsula War.

In the mid-1830s, Harris was working as a cobbler in London when he met an acquaintance, Captain Henry Curling, who asked him to dictate an account of his experiences of army life. This account was then held by Curling until 1848, when he succeeded in getting the manuscript published, preserving one of the very few surviving accounts of military service in this era from a private soldier.1 vol, 292 pgs 2000 UK, THE WINDRUSH PRESS
