1-219901 Hargreaves, Mark PAINTING WORLD WAR ONE 28MM WARGAMING FIGURES: THE MIDDLE EASTERN THEATRES In this first of a series of painting guides for wargamers published by Partizan Press, Mark Hargreaves takes us through a series of step by step photographic tutorials that cover the painting of flesh tones, khaki drill uniform, khaki serge uniform, horses, camels, guns and vehicles for the British, Dominion and Indian Army troops that served in the Middle Eastern theaters of World War I. The painting guide will also suit the same troops up until the late 1920s and so will be of interest to those who game the Back of Beyond and Interwar periods.

The guide also contains advice on simple conversions involving swapping heads and the basic use of greenstuff to add details to your miniatures. All the painted miniatures and models featured in this guide have been painted by Mark.1 vol, 120 pgs 2019 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-220101 Sutherland, Jon FACE ANOTHER FOE: Wargaming the Lace Wars - V1 Core Rules Face Another Foe covers roughly one hundred years, from 1650 to 1750, taking in the Jacobite Wars, The Great Northern War, the War of Austrian Succession, the Wars of the Spanish Succession, Russia's wars with Turkey, and innumerable conflicts in the east and further afield.

Some similarities to Mad Dogs and Englishmen, but Face Another Foe moves away from single figure basing and figure removal. The troop types are more varied too, but the importance of the general is maintained, as is the use of bonus cards.

Also includes a broad range of army lists. Some forces are deliberately earmarked as small armies. This means that the force was involved in a limited conflict in terms of scale, or that the army represents a national contingent of a much larger coalition force.1 vol, 68 pgs 2019 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-666133 Larranga, Raomon IRUN AND HONDARRIBIA IN THE WAR AGAINST THE FRENCH CONVENTION: 1793-1794 In 1789, the French Revolution abolished the monarchy and brought great political and social changes, choosing a parliament called the National Convention that drafted a new Constitution. The European monarchies, feeling threatened, formed a coalition, with Spain joining in August 1792. On March 7, 1793 the French National Convention declared war on Spain.

Two campaigns were prosecuted at the border of the Bidasoa, Irun, and Hondarribia. The first, from April 1793 until February 1794, favored the Spanish, in which the fort of Hendaia was destroyed and the Spanish dominated the two banks of the river with fortified posts in Biriatu and Tellatueta. However, during the second, the French, reinforced with many troops, advanced to occupy Baztan in June of 1794 and the successfully captures San Marcial in Irun and Hondarribia Square. The conflict ended on July 22, 1795 with the signing of the peace of Basel.1 vol, 118 pgs 2019 SPAIN, ALMENA

1-942083 Martin, Yves GLOIRE & EMPIRE # 83 In the Vendee, and more generally in the West, the decisions of the constituent Assembly are not always well accepted. Here, more than elsewhere, decrees on the Civil Constitution affecting the clergy are poorly received. The episcopate is not the only one to resist, since on September 12, 1790, agricultural workers took on the National Guard. Very quickly, other violent demonstrations accompany the edicts.1 vol, 132 pgs 2019 FRANCE, LCV

1-219930 Robinson, M P THE AMX 13 LIGHT TANK: Images of War series The AMX 13 was originally designed in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War. It represents French ambitions for national resurgence and withdrawal from wartime dependence on American military technology. Includes 250 color and black and white illustrations.

Being a light tank, it was an ambitious and far sighted departure from conventional tank design and it found a ready export market as well as being a critical part in the French Army arsenal. Its basic hull design lent itself to the development of a vast list of variants.

French designers progressively modernized, and indeed reinvented, the AMX13 and enabled it to claim to be one of the most successful armored vehicle programs of the postwar period. It proved its worth in numerous small wars worldwide in the service of many countries.

This, the first commercially published work on the AMX13 in English, examines in detail the technical industrial and tactical story of this remarkably successful armored fighting vehicle.1 vol, 248 pgs 2019 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-219920 Nannini, Marcus A LEFT FOR DEAD AT NIJMEGEN: The True Story of an American Paratrooper in World War II Recalls the larger-than-life experiences of an American paratrooper, Gene Metcalfe, who served in the 82nd Airborne during WWII. From his recruitment into the military at Camp Grant to his training with the 501st Paratroop Infantry Regiment at Camp Toccoa, it wasn't until D-Day itself that he first arrived in England to join the 508th PIR.

When Metcalfe boarded the C-47 which would drop him at Groesbeek Heights, just outside of Nijmegen, Holland, he was handed a box of condoms by an over-confident British lieutenant. He was to be among the first to jump into what should have been a picture-book meadow, free of German troops. Instead, it was defended by three German anti-aircraft cannon emplacements.

As he jumped into a hail of bullets and exploding shells he watched his plane roll over and plummet into the ground. It was at that moment he realized the condoms had either been a bad joke or the planners of Operation Market Garden had seriously underestimated German resistance. Gene was listed as KIA and left for dead by his patrol, who presumed the worst when they saw his injuries from a shell explosion.

The rest of his story is equally gripping, as he became a POW held outside Munich, being moved between various camps ridden with disease and a severely undernourished population. Eventually, after making an escape attempt and being captured within sight of the snow-capped Swiss mountains, his camp was liberated by American troops in April 1945.1 vol, 256 pgs 2019 US, CASEMATE

1-219910 Hapnoski, William C AUTOPSY OF AN UNWINNABLE WAR: VIETNAM Hapnoski contends the Vietnam War was lost before the first American shot was fired. In fact, it was lost before the first French Expeditionary Corps shot, almost two decades earlier, and was finally lost when the South Vietnamese fought partly, then entirely, on their own.

Written by a combatant in six large battles and many smaller firefights, plus a full range of pacification duties, the book examines the futility of the 30-year war in Vietnam. This covers those who lived and revealed by the people inside Vietnam who were directly involved in the war: from leaders in high positions, down to the jungle boots and sandals level of the fighters, and among the Vietnamese people who were living the war. Because of what was happening inside Vietnam itself, no matter what policies and directives came out of Paris or Washington, or the influences in Moscow or Beijing, it is about a Vietnamese idea which would eventually triumph over bullets.1 vol, 336 pgs 2019 US, CASEMATE
