1-220380 Black, Robert YANK AND REBEL RANGERS: Special Operations in the American Civil War USA and CSA employed small forces of bold and highly motivated soldiers for special operations behind enemy lines. Skilled in infiltration - sometimes disguising themselves as rural mail carriers - these warriors deftly scouted deep into enemy territory, captured important personnel, disrupted lines of communication and logistics, and sowed confusion and fear. Often wearing the uniform of the enemy, they faced execution as spies if captured. Despite these risks, and in part because of them, these warriors fought and died as American rangers.1 vol, 320 pgs 2019 UK, PEN AND SWORD

1-914145 various VAE VICTIS # 145: WWI - The War to End All Wars La Der des Ders (The War to End All Wars)

When World War I broke out in August 1914, soldiers on both sides dreamed of a rapid conclusion. Unfortunately, the years that followed contained only tears and mud, horror and death. Starting as a European conflict, it quickly spread to the rest of the world. Militarily speaking, the innovations were numerous and were made possible by an industry fully committed to the war effort. As a single player or facing off against an opponent, will you succeed in taking advantage of the events that mark these four long years? Can you develop your armies faster than the enemy? Victory is not a fantasy but rather the reward for the side that can exploit every opportunity.

1-220390 Harmsen, Peter STORM CLOUDS OVER THE PACIFIC: War in the Far East 1931-1941 War in the Far East is a trilogy of books comprising a general history of the war against Japan, expanding the narrative beginning long before Pearl Harbor and encompassing a much wider group of personalities.

Storm Clouds Over the Pacific begins the story long before Pearl Harbor, showing how the war can only be understood if ancient hatreds and long-standing geopolitics between Japan and China grew in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to explode into conflict in 1937.

The battles of Shanghai and Nanjing were followed by the battle of Taierzhuang in 1938, China's only major victory. A war of attrition continued up to 1941, the year when Japan made the momentous decision for all-out war; the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor catapulted the United States into the war, and the Japanese also overran British and Dutch territories throughout the western Pacific.1 vol, 288 pgs 2019 US, CASEMATE

1-220360 Bruhn, Cdr David ON THE GUNLINE: U.S. Navy and Royal Australian Navy Warships off Vietnam, 1965-1973 Discusses actions during the Vietnam War of 270 US Navy and four Royal Australian Navy warships that served at various times on the gunline. Within this armada were the battleship New Jersey, 10 cruisers, 212 destroyers, 50 destroyer escorts, and the inshore fire support ship Carronade. Includes photographs, maps, diagrams, appendices, bibliography, and an index.

When necessary, naval guns poured out round after round, until their barrels overheated and turned red, exterior paint blistered, and rifled-barrel liners were worn smooth. Allied troops locked in battle with North Vietnamese Army or Viet Cong troops in South Vietnam were grateful for artillery support from the sea. When North Vietnam launched the Easter Offensive across the DMZ in 1972, eight to ten ships in line, abreast, often firing simultaneously and around the clock, delivered desperately needed fire support. At one point, over 40 cruisers and destroyers were serving together on the gunline.1 vol, 374 pgs 2019 US, HERITAGE BOOKS
