Includes new weapons, equipment, talents, powers, creatures both normal and supernatural, and a host of new companies to fight or encourage the darkness that threatens to engulf the Old World.

You will meet old enemies such as Vlad Tepes, Prince of Wallachia, and his nemesis Abraham van Helsing. Play the brave men of the Imperial Nightwatch as they test their modern might against the terrifying vampire minions of the immortal Countess Bathory. Rouse the Village mob to drive out Baron Viktor von Frankenstein and his abominations.

Witness Sampson Caine and the Nuns of the Order of the Bringer of Salvation defend the innocent from the predations of the Dread Monks of Sucevita. Unleash the Unborn upon the terrible White Slavers. You can also upgrade and test your existing IHMN companies against these many terrors.

New scenarios and landscapes will take your companies into dark forests, mist shrouded castles, ancient ruins, pagan altars and grim, fortified villages the length and breadth of Transylvania, Wallachia, and the ever-forbidding Carpathian Mountains.

This is classic Victorian Gothic Horror at its grisly best. It is not recommended for ladies and gentlemen of a nervous disposition, for the darkness will feed upon their terror.1 vol, 0 pgs 2017 UK, THE MINISTRY OF GENTLEMANLY WARFARE

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

This book examines two evenly matched competitors in this conflict, the German Panzer 38(t) and the Soviet BT-7. Both were of similar size, armed with guns of comparable firepower, and had foreign roots - the Panzer 38(t) was a Czechoslovak design and the BT-7 was an evolution of the American Christie tank. With full-color artwork and archive and present-day photography, this absorbing study assesses the strengths and limitations of these two types against the wider background of armored doctrine in the opening stages of Operation Barbarossa.1 vol, 80 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

1-996305 Forczyk, Robert 305 KURSK 1943: The Southern Front Mauled at Stalingrad, the German army looked to regain the initiative on the Eastern Front with a huge offensive launched near the city of Kursk, 280 miles Southwest of Moscow. Armed with the new Panther tank, Hitler and Field Marshal von Manstein were confident that they could inflict another crushing defeat on the Soviet Union. 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. Includes campaign maps, stunning photographs, and vivid artwork.1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 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

1-SS14038 Gourley, John TICONDEROGA-CLASS CRUISERS IN ACTION Ticonderoga-Class Cruisers were originally conceived in the late 1970s as a new guided-missile destroyer ship class of nuclear-powered escorts. Instead, cost forced planners to build the new cruisers with modified destroyer hulls and gas-turbine propulsion. The end result was a longer, sleeker cruiser with a formidable variety of offensive and defensive weapons as well as cutting-edge radars, sonars, and a full electronic warfare suite.

Ticonderoga-class vessels eventually totaled 27. They have shown the flag in ports all across the globe, maintained peace, and effectively performed their primary role to protect the aircraft carriers with anti-submarine and anti-air systems.

Armed with Tomahawk cruise and Harpoon anti-ship missiles, ships of this class have destroyed targets on the seas, air, land and have even eliminated a damaged satellite flying 133 miles above the Pacific Ocean with a missile impact velocity was 22,000 mph. While the first five ships of the class have been decommissioned, 22 Ticonderoga-class ships navigate around the planet to protect America's interests. Includes more than 200 photos and two line drawings.1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 US, SQUADRON/SIGNAL
