1-225470 Bull, Stephen English Civil War Operations Manual : Insights Into the History, Weaponry and Tactics From 1640 to 1660, the English Civil War was a divisive and disruptive episode in English history, when loyalties were tested and saw family set against family, brother against brother, and neighbour against neighbour.

This book begins with an outline of the course of the conflict, including accounts of the main battles and notable events in the war. Then it reviews the organisation and structure of the two opposing forces, their commanders, and the armies -- the Royalists (also known as Cavaliers) and the Parliamentarians (the Roundheads). Next, a description of weapons and how they were used -- mortar, cannon, musket (matchlock and flintlock), swords, and pike, followed by equipment, uniforms and armour. The next section covers battlefield tactics involving musketeers, pikemen, and cavalry. The book ends with the war's aftermath and the insights gained through archaeology. 1 vol, 176 pgs 2020 UK, HAYNES

1-203603 Powell, David The Maps of Chickamauga - An Atlas of the Chickamauga Campaign, Including the Tullahoma Operations, June 22 - September 23, 1863 Third in a new series of campaign studies that take a different approach toward military history, this uses 124 full-color maps, graphically illustrating the complex tangle of combat's ebb and flow that makes the titanic bloodshed of Chickamauga -- one of the most confusing actions of the American Civil War. Track individual regiments through their engagements at 15 to 20-minute intervals or explore each army in motion as brigades and divisions maneuver and deploy to face the enemy.

The maps lay out the troops and terrain as they were in September of 1863. Opening and closing chapters describe each army's approach to the battlefield and the retreat and pursuit to Chattanooga in the aftermath of the bloody combat. In between, sections are devoted to the fighting of September 18, 19, and 20, following the battle as it unfolds from a series of limited collisions between isolated columns into the bloody action of the last two days. Situation maps reflect the posture of each army on an hourly basis, while tactical maps reveal the intricacies of regimental and battery movements.

The text accompanying each map explains the action in succinct detail, supported by a host of primary sources. Eyewitness accounts underscore the human aspect of the actions detailed in the maps as brigades and regiments collide1 vol, 320 pgs 2009 US, SAVAS BEATIE

1-956074 various WORLD AT WAR # 74: Munich War Two-player, operational-level simulation of a hypothetical World War II in Europe that began in the fall of 1938. The assumption is that the British and French governments did not back down at the September 1938 Munich conference when Hitler demanded the Sudetenland from Czechoslovakia and instead went to war with the Third Reich. The ensuing conflict finds the powers partially prepared for war. The objective is for each alliance to seize a position from which it can then dominate Europe. One player commands the Axis (Germany and aligned countries) and one player controls the Allies (anti-German forces). Each hex on the map represents 65 kilometers or 40 miles. Units are at the corps and army level. Each game turn represents one week of operations with the game covering the first two months of the war.

Components: One 22x34-inch map, 176 die-cut counters, and magazine.

1-963050 MODERN WAR # 50: Putin Moves East Operational-strategic level two-player wargame covering a struggle for control between the Russian-led Eurasian Union and a Coalition of opposing states led by the People's Republic of China to gain control of the Far East. Among other things, the game presumes a breakdown in Russian Chinese relations leading to open belligerency. Units represent operational task forces of corps or reinforced size; special forces; airpower; and cyberwar. Additionally, paramilitary forces play a significant role in the game rules. The objective of each player is to seize critical resource, industrial, and communications centers, thereby gaining control of the Far East. Each hex on the map represents 100 kilometers from side to side. Each turn of play represents anything from three days of intense combat to a couple weeks of refitting. Ground units represent mostly corps sized task forces. Special forces units are regiments, brigades or groupings of cadres.
