L'ART DE LA GUERRE: Wargaming Rules for Ancient & Medieval
L'Art de la Guerre is a French ruleset translated into English. It covers antiquity to the late Middle Ages using miniatures from 6mm to 28mm high. The basing is compatible with the majority of existing rules. Contains 283 army lists (including Mesoamerican armies).

L'Art de la Guerre's flexible system allows players to play standard sized games in a matter of two hours with relatively few figures as well as expansive games with multitudes of miniatures on large tables that can last an evening of play or longer.

An army will generally consist of from twenty to thirty units (one stand = one unit) divided into three corps (right wing, center and left wing), each led by a commander. Each troop type has a basic factor against other troops. Each unit has a number of cohesion points. Heavier troops in close formation start with more cohesion points than lighter ones. The losses from shooting and close combat gradually reduce a unit's cohesion and when it reaches zero the unit is routed and removed from play.

Combat: Both players roll 1D6 and add their unit's base factor plus any bonuses. The higher score wins the combat and the losing unit suffers cohesion losses that vary according to the difference between the two results. Troops armed with missile weapons can shoot: archers, cavalry, light troops, etc. A successful shot results in the target losing one cohesion point.

Specific rules for charges, impetuous troops, evading, interpenetration, bursting through friends, rallying units, routs, pursuit, and elephant rampage.1 vol, 240 pgs 2013 UK, NORTH STAR

RANGER: North American Frontier Soldier: Volume 1
Once the colonization of North America began it would not take long for conflict to follow. The European Empires of France and Great Britain would wage war for almost a decade to decide which world power would control the continent. The French, through strong alliances with the various Native American tribes would integrate the Native's methods of waging war with their own to develop what would be known as 'La Petite Guerre', or 'The Little War'.

Raiding parties of French Partisan fighters and Native Americans would sweep down from Canada and attack isolated settlements along the frontier of the English colonies, then just as quickly melt back into the forest from which they came. The militia organizations of the English settlements were often caught unaware by the quick hit and run raids of the French and Indians.

A new type of soldier was needed that could provide security against these raiders from the north, a soldier that could fight the enemy on their own terms in the vast woodlands of North America. With this need, the Ranger was born. In this book Matt Wulff takes a look at some of the more famous Ranger units from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries that risked their lives as 'Guardians of our frontiers.'1 vol, 178 pgs 2008 US, HERITAGE BOOKS

2-30510 Gallaher, John G.

NAPOLEON'S IRISH LEGIONS
Drawing heavily on the original documents of the Archives de la guerre, John G. Gallaher has written the first complete account of the storied Irish Legion, which joined with Napoleon to fight England.

Following the failed Rebellion of 1798, hundreds of Irishmen fled to the Continent to avoid imprisonment or execution. As part of his planned campaign against England and Ireland in 1803, Napoleon authorized the creation of an Irish Legion to invade Ireland in order to tie down British forces that could otherwise have been used against the main French invasion of England. The promise of returning to Ireland with the French army at their backs brought many recruits to the Legion. The Irish emigrants who enlisted in this special unit of the French army were Irish nationalists who intended to liberate Ireland and create an Irish republic.

When the anticipated expedition to Ireland never took place, some of the Irishmen quit the army though the great majority of them remained to fight for Napoleon. Battalions of the Legion encountered the British at Flushing in 1809, fought Wellington in Portugal in 1810-11, and served with distinction at the Battle of Bautzen and in Silesia, where after heavy losses in lesser engagements with the enemy, the Legion was finally destroyed on the banks of the Bober River in 1813.
