1-216480 Deane, Morgan DECISIVE BATTLES IN CHINESE HISTORY Includes 30 b/w illustrations and maps. Key battles from Maling, fought in 342 BC during the Warring States period, to Hengyang in 1944, which marked the end of major Japanese operations in China.

Each of the twelve chapters highlights a significant conflict that selectively focuses on unique Chinese characteristics of the time, including belief systems, ruling ideology, the connection between technology and warfare, military theory, political events and rulers, and foreign policy, including China's eventual interaction with the West.

The book pushes back on a variety of ideas and stereotypes, ranging from the Chinese use of gunpowder, their supposedly weak reaction to the West, the viability of the Dynastic Cycle in studying history, the context of Chinese military theory, the exclusivity of martial and cultural spheres, and the uniqueness of Western imperialism. It also offers a groundbreaking reassessment of Mao Zedong's leadership and his impact on the development of guerilla warfare.1 vol, 196 pgs 2017 US, WESTHOLME PUBLISHING

1-216470 Laramie, Michael KING WILLIAM'S WAR: The First Contest for North America, 1689-1697 King William's War encompassed several proxy wars being fought by the English and the French through their native allies. The Beaver Wars was a long running feud between the Iroquois Confederacy, New France, and New France's native allies over control of the lucrative fur trade. Fueled by English guns and money, the Iroquois attempted to divert the French fur trade towards their English trading partners in Albany, and in the process gain control over other Indian tribes.

To the east the pro-French Wabanaki of Maine, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick had earlier fought a war with New England, but English expansion and French urgings, aided by foolish moves and political blunders on the part of New England, erupted into a second Wabanaki War on the eve of King William's War. Thus, these two conflicts officially became one with the arrival of news of a declaration of war between France and England in 1689 following the 'Glorious Revolution,' the coronation of King William III and Mary II.

The next nine years saw coordinated attacks, including French assaults on Schenectady, New York, and Massachusetts, and English attacks around Montreal and on Nova Scotia. The war ended diplomatically, but started again five years later in Queen Anne's War. Includes 25 b/w illustrations and maps.1 vol, 344 pgs 2017 US, WESTHOLME PUBLISHING

1-666125 Fernandez, Jose GUERRAS CIVILES I LA INDEPENDENCIA DE LOS VIRREINATOS DE LA MONARQU In the summer of 1808 the open war broke out between the Empire of France of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Kingdom of Spain of Ferdinand VII. As a result of the defeats suffered by Spanish troops in the early years of that conflict, and perceiving the weakness of the regency that had assumed the Spanish government, several Latin American leaders led various movements of liberation between 1809 and 1810.

This first volume of the three analyzes the causes of these wars and includes the first rebellions against the monarchy of Spain before the 19th century, the special characteristics of the Spanish army deployed in the territories American, and the Territorial organization of Spanish America at the beginning of the conflict.

Also covers military operations in the Viceroyalty of the Rio de la Plata and New Spain, leaving for the second and third volume the narration of the war in the Viceroyalty of new Granada and Peru, and the general captaincies of Chile and Venezuela.1 vol, 118 pgs 2018 SPAIN, ALMENA

1-216490 Weir III, Howard A PARADISE OF BLOOD:The Creek War of 1813-14 In 1811, a portion of the Creek Indians who inhabited a vast area across Georgia, Alabama, and parts of Florida and Mississippi, interpreted an earth tremor as a sign that they had to return to their traditional way of life. What was an internal Indian dispute soon became engulfed in the greater War of 1812 to become perhaps the most consequential campaign of that conflict.

At immediate stake in what became known as the Creek War of 1813-14 was whether the Creeks and their inconstant British and Spanish allies or the young United States would control millions of acres of highly fertile Native American land. The conflict's larger issue was whether the Indian nations of the lower American South-the Creek, Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw-would be able to remain in their ancestral homes. Includes 30 b/w illustrations and maps.

The Creek War was marked by savagery, such as the murder of hundreds of settlers at Fort Mims, Alabama - the largest massacre of its kind in United States history - and fierce battles, including Horseshoe Bend, where more Indian warriors were confirmed killed than in any other single engagement in the long wars against the Indians.

Many notable personalities fought during the conflict, including Andrew Jackson, who gained national prominence for his service, Sam Houston, War Chief William Weatherford, and Davy Crockett. When the war was over, more than 20 million acres had been added to the US, thousands of Indians were dead or homeless, and Jackson was on his way to the presidency.

The war also eliminated the last effective Native American resistance to westward expansion east of the Mississippi, and by giving the United States land that was ideal for large-scale cotton planting, it laid the foundation for the Civil War a generation later. 1 vol, 480 pgs 2017 US, WESTHOLME PUBLISHING
