1-2134810 TEST OF HONOUR: The Onna-Bugeisha of Asakura Onna-Bugeisha, female martial artists, are members of the samurai class and noblewomen trained to fight for their homes, their honor, and their family. These women were not ornaments; they were as dangerous as their male counterparts, amply able to defend their homes and property while the armies were away on campaign. Historically, Onna-Bugeisha have been associated with the Naginata and Kaiken as fighting weapons; one very long and one very short! That is not to say they were limited to those weapons and yumi, yari, katana, and teppo all feature in an Onna-Bugeisha's armory.

Onna-Bugeisha have existed as long as there have been people on the Japanese archipelago although not named as such until much later. The earliest ones being as much myth as a legend, including the very real Empress Jingu (169-269 AD), widow of the Emperor Chuai. She is purported to have led an invasion of Korea which was known for its success without any casualties. Living to 100 years old she is still honored today and often held as an example of everything the Onna-Bugeisha symbolize.

The warlord studio has worked hard to bring you these stunning and intricately detailed models, perhaps some of the best we have made!

The box set contains: 7 metal 28mm Onna-Bugeisha models, cards to play Test Of Honour, and a campaign rules booklet.1 vol, 7 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-217070B Sowers, Lee Thomas AMERICA'S OLDE WEST: 28mm Skirmish Actions & Gunfights -- 1836 to 1890 Time to saddle up, pardner, and hit the trail to action in the Olde West, from the Comanche Wars (1836) to Wounded Knee (1890). This skirmish rule set, an offshoot of the WWII Skirmish Action rules, certainly covers the traditional Wild West (post ACW to 1880s), but the Indian Wars ranged over a far wider period and so does America's Olde West.

Initiative is by faction (gang, squad, war party, posse, etc.), which usually numbers between four and 10, and each figure gets one action: Move, Shoot, Take Cover, and so on. Then each figure dices against its Quality number for a second action...BUT, certain factions receive a second action without needing a roll to offer subtle differences between factions.

All the popular weapons, such as Winchester '73 and Colt Peacemaker, are included in the weapon charts. Firing is a quick six-sided attacker die versus six-sided defender die, with the difference determining the result.

Includes six pages of 'army' lists: cowboys, US cavalry, native Americans, gunfighters, outlaws, and factions, scenarios, and quick reference cards. Plays well on small kitchen tables.

1-930311 STRATEGY & TACTICS # 311: Pacific Submarine Pacific Subs. Germany's U-boats are better known, but the US Navy's submarine fleet achieved the greater victory, bringing the Japanese Empire to its knees by hollowing out its merchant fleet. In this solitaire game, you the player represent the skipper of a submarine. Your task is to conduct patrols against the Japanese by supporting the US fleets in combat, ambushing Japanese warships, carrying out covert operations in Japanese territory, and sinking merchant ships and tankers. You can conduct one of several individual patrols, or fight the whole campaign, with a goal of promotion to Captain-if you survive.

Patrols are assigned by a die roll against a possible set of missions, but the set changes through the course of the war. In each, you move your boat across the situation map, that covers a quarter of the map, at 375 miles per hex, to the chosen island, ports, or shipping route. Some of the counters represent Japanese naval forces and installations, which you either seek or avoid depending on your mission. Each action covers 1-to-3 hexes and may result in enemy contact.

You decide whether to engage, and choose your boat's actions-depth, speed, course, and weapons-to hit the juiciest targets and avoid their escorts. At the end of the patrol, your tally is based on ships sunk and other mission parameters, less the damage to your boat. High scores result in promotion; low scores leave you beached.

Components: One 22x34-inch map, 280 counters, and magazine.1 vol, 84 pgs 2018 US, DECISION GAMES

1-217260 Cutler, Donald HANG THEM ALL: George Wright and the Plateau Indian War Col. George Wright's campaign against the Yakima, Spokane, Coeur d'Alene, Palouse, and other Indian peoples of eastern Washington Territory was intended to punish them for a recent attack on another US Army force. Wright had once appeared to respect the Indians of the Upper Columbia Plateau, but in 1858 he led a brief war noted for its violence, bloodshed, and summary trials and executions. Over 30 days, Wright's forces defeated a confederation of Plateau warriors in two battles, destroyed their food supplies, slaughtered animals, burned villages, took hostages, and ordered the hanging of 16 prisoners.

Today, many critics view his actions as war crimes, but among white settlers and politicians of the time, Wright was a patriotic hero who helped open the Inland Northwest to settlement. Hang Them All offers a comprehensive account of Wright's campaigns and explores the controversy surrounding his legacy.

1-217270 Jeffreys, Alan THE INDIAN ARMY IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR: New Perspectives Academic reassessment of the global role of the Indian Army during WWI. It looks at the historiography of the army -- taking into account the recent work on the army (particularly on the Western Front in 1914-1915). Includes seven illustrations and two maps.

Covers the traditional areas of the Indian Army on the Western Front, in Palestine, Mesopotamia and the defense of the Suez Canal; however, there are also chapters on combined operations; Indian prisoners of war in Germany and Turkey; the expansion of the officer corps; and the Sikh experience, as well as the mobilization of the equine army at the beginning of the war and the demobilization of the army in the period from 1918 until 1923. Three additional chapters are related to the theme, such as the role of the Royal Indian Marine; the Territorial Army in India; and Churchill's portrayal of the Indian Army during the Gallipoli campaign in his account The World Crisis.1 vol, 314 pgs 2018 UK, HELION AND COMPANY
