1-195033 Priestley, Rick HAIL CAESAR: Army Lists Volume 3: Rome's Dacian Wars At the end of the first century AD, the Roman Empire was the greatest military power the world had ever seen. All of Western Europe south of the Rhine and the Danube, southern Britain, North Africa, Egypt, the Balkans and most of the Levant was under its control. The mighty Roman army and its legions had rarely known defeat in living memory - and never for very long.

One upstart state and its wily, aggressive leader refused to bend the knee. For almost 20 years, and against all odds, King Decebalus of Dacia defied Rome from his fortress capital deep within the Carpathian Mountains. Composed of thousands of savage tribesmen and heavily armored Sarmatian lancers, Dacia's armies proved to be powerful enough to keep the legions at bay. All this was to change with the ascension of the soldier-emperor Trajan, leading to one of antiquity's greatest conflicts - the Dacian Wars.

This supplement for Hail Caesar focuses on Rome's wars under Trajan against the Dacians and their Sarmatian allies. Featured battles include Adamclisi, Tapae, and the Siege of Sarmizegetusa Regia. Also included are rules for playing skirmish games, fighting sieges, and using warships, as well as campaign and hobby ideas. 1 vol, 84 pgs 2013 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-195310 Wills, Gary David WELLINGTON'S FIRST BATTLE Full color throughout and illustrated with campaign and battlefield maps.

Tells the story of the Duke of Wellington's involvement in his first campaign -- the Duke of York's defence of Belgium and Holland in 1794 and early 1795.

During this campaign, the Duke of Wellington fought his first battle, the combat of Boxtel on the 15th September 1794. The Duke of Wellington is rightly considered a 'great commander', arguably Great Britain's greatest soldier. It is surprising therefore that so little has been written about his early career and the formative experiences of war that guided him in his rise to greatness. Historians past and present have naturally focussed on the Wars of Napoleon rather than those of the preceding Revolutionary period. However the French Revolutionary Wars witnessed the art of warfare in arguably a greater state of flux than the later Napoleonic period and provided the training ground for all the great soldiers who fought for and against Napoleon.

In August 1794, while Napoleon languished in prison in Fort Carre near Antibes, the focus of the war was more than five hundred miles away to the north in the Netherlands, where Revolutionary France's largest and most powerful armies fought the combined forces of Austria, Great Britain and the United Provinces.

The man who would become the Duke of Wellington, Field Marshal in several countries, had departed from Cork as Sir Arthur Wesley, Lieutenant-Colonel of the 33rd Foot, the regiment that would later bear his name. Wesley and his regiment joined Lord Moira's force and travelled to Ostend in order to reinforce the army of the Duke of York. The second half of 1794 provided Wesley with his first active service on campaign, in which he found neither fame (his name is not mentioned in any of the contemporary accounts of Boxtel) nor fortune, but he did gain experience.

1-196020 Zaloga, Steven editor BATTLEGROUND: The Greatest Tank Duels in History The tank came of age during World War II at the cutting edge of Hitler's Blitzkreig and became the most powerful machine on the 20th-century battlefield. But what was it like to be a driver or gunner in the Battle of the Bulge, on the Eastern Front, the deserts of North Africa, or the dusty plains of Iraq? From the Sherman and the Tiger to the Abrams M1, Battleground shows how tank crews dealt with the deafening noise and scorching heat of battle whilst driving and operating tons of sophisticated machinery. Packed with breathtaking first-hand accounts and with real-life insights and detailed drawings, this book takes readers inside the greatest tanks ever developed in the some of the most crucial duels of modern land warfare.

Includes: Introduction, Panther vs T-34: Ukraine 1943, Sherman Firefly vs Tiger: Normandy 1944, T-34-85 vs M26 Pershing: Korea 1950, Centurion vs T-55: Golan Heights 1973, M1A1 Abrams vs T-72: Desert Storm 1991. 1 vol, 0 pgs 2011 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-198820 Peck, Gaillard R Jr AMERICA'S SECRET MiG SQUADRON: The Red Eagles of Project Constant Peg As a Vietnam veteran and Phantom F-4 pilot, Colonel Gail Peck (call-sign 'Evil') had been disappointed with the level of training offered to US fighter pilots. He was determined to ensure that they were unbeatable in the air, particularly against their Cold War adversaries flying the already legendary MiG fighter jets.

Working with the support of General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, Jr, and under conditions of the utmost secrecy, the CONSTANT PEG program was launched with Peck as the original 'Red Eagle.' This fascinating history was first revealed in Steve Davies' acclaimed Red Eagles: America's Secret MiGs, but this book is the insider's perspective, complete with never-before-published anecdotes and photographs, revealing how Peck battled bureaucracy and skepticism to ultimately establish the premier fighter pilot training center. 1 vol, 352 pgs 2012 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-200380 Keeney, Douglas THE POINTBLANK DIRECTIVE: Three Generals and the Untold Story of the Daring Plan that Saved D-Day Where was the Luftwaffe on D-Day? Following decades of debate, a formerly classified history was restored in 2010 and this book is the result of extensive new research that creates a richly textured portrait of perhaps the last untold story of D-Day: three uniquely talented men and why the German Air Force was unable to mount an effective combat against the invasion forces.

Following a year of unremarkable bombing against German aircraft industries, General Henry H. 'Hap' Arnold, commander of the US Army Air Forces, placed his lifelong friend General Carl A. 'Tooey' Spaatz in command of the strategic bombing forces in Europe, and his protege, General James 'Jimmy' Doolittle, command of the Eighth Air Force in England. For these fellow aviation strategists, he had one set of orders - sweep the skies clean of the Luftwaffe by June 1944. Spaatz and Doolittle couldn't do that but they could clear the skies sufficiently to gain air superiority over the D-Day beaches. The plan was called Pointblank. 1 vol, 304 pgs 2012 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-207080 Cardona, Ricardo Recio STURMTRUPPEN: WWI German Stormtroopers (1914-1918) After General Falkenhayn, head of the OHL, gave orders for the creation of special detachments, the first assault units (Sturmtruppen) were formed during the spring and summer of 1916, when the Sturmbataillon Rohr was organized. These detachments had the mission of spreading the Stosstrupptaktik, a new tactic which decisively transformed the fighting methods of the German Army.

But long before this happened, another type of troops had been created within the German infantry during the winter of 1914-1915: the Shock troops (Stosstruppen), fresh infantry groups that were never officially recognized as such and never belonged to any permanent unit, but remained active until the end of the war and contributed to improving the offensive capacity of the German infantry.

This 8.5x11-inch book is a narration of the history of the shock and assault troops and covers their combat methods. Finally, it offers a comprehensive description of their uniforms, equipment, and weapons, along with a large number of illustrations and period photographs rarely seen. 1 vol, 216 pgs 2014 SPAIN, ANDREA PRESS

1-207800 Larsson, Lars HITLER'S SWEDES: A History of the Swedish Volunteers in the Waffen SS Sweden was neutral during WWII, but thousands of Swedes wanted to participate in the war -- the largest group was in Finland, where over 10,000 Swedes applied to fight against the Red Army. Another much smaller group of some 180-200 men, which saw action against the Soviets, enlisted as SS volunteers.

While the Danish and Norwegian SS volunteers are fairly well known today, their Swedish counterparts remain more unknown. Still, they saw action on both the Eastern Front and NW Europe, and participated in some of the bloodiest clashes: the initial stages of Operation Barbarossa, the winter of 1941/42, the battles of Kursk, Arnhem, Normandy, Narva, the Warsaw uprising, the Cherkassy and Kurland pockets and, finally, the end in Berlin.

Compared to many other groups of volunteers, there was never an official recruitment drive in Sweden. Those who wanted to recruit themselves often had to make their way to the occupied countries -- a fact that makes those Swedes who joined the SS volunteers in the truest sense.

As such, this book is as much a history about the units, which the Swedes served in, as it is a story about the individuals themselves. It also asks, who were they? What motivated them? What did they experience and how did their service end? Includes 160 b/w photos and color maps. 1 vol, 336 pgs 2015 UK, HELION AND COMPANY

1-218491 Stallard, John CRUEL SEAS: Royal Navy Vosper MTB Flotilla - 1:300 Scale Six Vosper MTBs (3 early and 3 late): 1/300 Scale plastic models.

At the outbreak of war, Britain had 3 formed MTB flotillas, precious few to cover the world's largest empire. But with judicious use of what were pre-war civilian boatyards and the huge resources of their empire and help from the USA, the Coastal Forces would in 1944 have 25,000 sailors in over 2000 small craft.

These Flotillas, enhanced by Commonwealth, Dutch, Norwegian, French, and other free forces sank over 400 enemy vessels, including 48 E-boats and 32 midget submarines. They also accounted for 32 Axis aircraft and fired in total 1169 torpedoes. This impressive tactical achievement contributed mightily to the Allied strategic successes. 1 vol, 6 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-218492 Stallard, John CRUEL SEAS: US Navy PT Boat Flotilla - 1:300 Scale Contains: Six PT boats (3x Elco and 3x Higgins) 1/300 Scale plastic models.

On December 7th, 1941, the US Navy could only boast 3 squadrons of motor torpedo boats, or PT boats (patrol torpedo) as they were named. PT squadron 1 was based on Pearl Harbor and the 12 boats opened fire on the incoming Japanese bombers, claiming 2 planes downed for sure and others damaged. Squadron 2 was based in Manila Bay of the Philippines and had a similar introduction to their war, shooting down a few attackers and learning that fast boats were a tricky target for bombers. Squadron 3 was in New York working up and would later see great service in Guadalcanal.

The PT boats fought all over the globe, from Pearl Harbor to the Philippines, the Adriatic and Mediterranean and also in the English Channel. They achieved many successes, particularly in the last two years of the Pacific War they destroyed many float planes and hundreds of barges which were the lifeblood of the overextended Japanese army. This barge hunting was a grueling business and needed a certain ruthlessness on the behalf of the American crews, Japanese soldiers and sailors being loath to surrender, hence a grizzly end to many a barge crew. 1 vol, 6 pgs 2018 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-978016 016 SEAFIRE vs A6M ZERO Products of vastly different design philosophies, the Seafire F III and the A6M Zero were never intended to meet in combat, and never should have. The Zero, extremely nimble at low speeds was purpose-built as a shipboard fighter. In contrast, the Spitfire was intended to operate from established airfields, and needed to be adapted as a carrier fighter.

The book examines these two iconic fighters and their two very different histories, using fantastic artwork and first-hand accounts to illustrate the last aerial duel of World War II, as the British Seafire overcame its critics to emerge victorious over the Japanese Zero.

Both were of similar size, armed with guns of comparable firepower, and had foreign roots - the Panzer 38(t) was a Czechoslovak design and the BT-7 was an evolution of the American Christie tank. With full-color artwork and archive and present-day photography, this absorbing study assesses the strengths and limitations of these two types against the wider background of armored doctrine in the opening stages of Operation Barbarossa. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-984039 Nossov, Konstantin S and Illust. by Peter Dennis 039 RUSSIAN FORTRESSES 1480-1682 In 1462 the throne of the Principality of Moscow passed to Ivan III (1462-1505), who succeeded in throwing off the Tatar yoke. For the next 200 years this new state struggled to maintain her borders against a series of attacks from the Lithuanians, Swedes and Poles to the west, as well as the Tatars to the south. They achieved this through the development of a network of fortified sites and a series of linear defensive systems. This book examine how these fortifications were developed to respond to ever changing situations under the command of such charismatic rulers as Ivan the Terrible, right through to the military reforms of Peter the Great.

1-993072 072 F-86 SABRE ACES OF THE 4TH FIGHTER WING The entry of the United State's premier jet interceptor into the Korean War was triggered by the ever-increasing presence of the Soviet-built MiG-15 south of the Yalu River. The possibility of the USAF losing air supremacy over the Korean Peninsula was unacceptable. The 4th Fighter Wing got the call for combat in Korea. They were made up of a combination of new pilots right out of jet training and the older combat veterans of World War II vintage. This combination of pilot types wrote and re-wrote the text books on jet warfare. Of the 40 jet aces that the war produced, the 4th Wing boasted 24 of them. This book details these incredible pilots and the planes they flew. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2006 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-993076 Weal , John 076 MORE Bf 109 ACES OF THE RUSSIAN FRONT The four-year long Eastern Front campaign fought between Germany and the Soviet Union produced not only the greatest number of aces, but also the highest individual and unit scores ever recorded in the history of aerial warfare. Fully illustrated volume covers the Luftwaffe fighter pilots credited with scores of between 50 and 100 -- every single one of them amassing a greater number of victories than the highest and most celebrated of any British or American World War II ace.

Despite these huge personal totals, the names of these pilots who fought against the Red Air Force remain almost unknown to many English speaking readers. More Bf 109 Aces of the Russian Front rectifies that omission, providing first-hand accounts from the combat veterans themselves, as well as never-before published photographs, vividly conveying the terrible experiences of the protagonists in this difficult theater of war. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2007 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995218 Zaloga, Steven J. 218 T-26 LIGHT TANK: Backbone of the Red Army The T-26 was the first major Soviet armor program of the 1930s, beginning as a license-built version of the British Vickers 6-ton export tank. Although the T-26 retained the basic Vickers hull and suspension, the Red Army began to make extensive changes to the turret and armament, starting with the addition of a 45mm tank gun in 1933. The T-26 was built in larger numbers than any other tank prior to World War II.

Indeed, more T-26 tanks were manufactured than the combined tank production of Germany, France, Britain, and the United States in 1931-40. This book surveys the development of the T-26 as well as its combat record in the Spanish Civil War, the war in China, the border wars with Poland and Finland in 1939-40, and the disastrous battles of 1941 during Operation Barbarossa.

1-996091 091 KOLIN 1757 In May of 1757 Frederick the Great invaded Bohemia, smashed an Austrian army outside Prague and bottled it up in the city. The Empress Maria Theresa dispatched Marshal Daun with 60,000 men to save the Empire's second city. Frederick had won a string of victories over the Austrians and was convinced his men would always triumph.

Although outnumbered he attacked, but the Austrians were waiting. His army was defeated and forced to withdraw. As his veterans commented, 'they were not the same old Austrians at all'. Simon Millar shows how Frederick's overconfidence proved his undoing at Kolin.

For seven years, the Romans marched and battled across what is now Scotland. Finally, in AD 83, they fought the final battle at Mons Graupius where 10,000 Caledonians were slaughtered with only 360 Roman dead. It proved the high-water mark of Roman power in Britain. Following unrest elsewhere in the empire, the north of Scotland was abandoned and Rome's forces began their long retreat. Never again would Roman arms stand on the edge of the known world.

1-997184 Rottman, Gordon 184 ALLIED WORLD WAR II SABOTAGE DEVICES AND BOOBY TRAPS Following Churchill's directive to 'set occupied Europe ablaze,' the SOE and later its American sister organization, the OSS, were deployed across the continent. Outnumbered, surrounded, and in great peril, these brave agents were armed with a wide variety of devices to help them achieve their objectives, including numerous pieces of sabotage equipment and cunning booby traps.

This book examines these different pieces of equipment and the technicalities involved in deploying them effectively, as well as discussing the specialist equipment developed by Special Forces units, including the SAS Lewes Bomb. Touching on some of the stranger developments, such as explosives disguised as lumps of coal, the author goes on to describe the German clearance techniques that were developed to avoid these dangers. Complete with specially commissioned artwork and period diagrams together with detailed descriptions of the dangerous missions of Allied agents, this book is a fascinating insight into the secret war behind enemy lines. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2010 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

For General George B. McClellan, the dejected Union troops who poured into Washington fresh from defeat at Bull Run on Monday 22 July, 1861, were to provide the raw material which he would train, equip, organize and ultimately transform from a mere mob into an effective fighting force. In October 1861 the Army of the Potomac officially came into being. This entertaining volume from the same team of author Philip Katcher and artist Michael Youens who produced Men-at-Arms 37 The Army of Northern Virginia, explores how this transition came about, with a particular emphasis on weapons, uniforms and equipment.

The last obstacle on the road to Alexandria was the British 8th Army, which had finally halted at the isolated El Alamein railroad station after a long, bitter retreat.

At this significant spot, the disciplined British troops and their battle-hardened allies, under General Bernard Law Montgomery, prepared to make a final stand. Rommel launched a violent assault, but was unable to overcome his opponents' stubborn defense. After a bloody 12-day battle, the Africakorps was forced to retreat. The soon-to-be-legendary 8th Army had smashed German dreams of dominating North Africa.

1-TPS20 Various TURNING POINT SIMULATIONS #20: The Battle of Stalingrad Stalingrad comes with hard-mounted maps and mounted, die-cut counters. Each battle is presented in a design of low complexity, but high challenge, from some of the industry's top designers.

Bitter fighting went from block to block, then building to building, and -- literally -- room to room. German troops joked that they had, 'Captured the kitchen but were still fighting for the living room.' Soviet soldiers in the city said, 'There is no land on the other side of the Volga.'

But the battle for Stalingrad the city was only part of the German 1942 campaign, with its multiple priorities of political objectives (like Stalingrad) and resource objectives (like the Caucasus). Now, gamers can face the same questions and try to do better.

Each hexagon on the map is about 33 miles/55 kilometers from east to west. Each turn represents one-half of a month. The typical combat units on the map are Soviet Armies, Axis minor allied Armies and German Corps. 1 vol, 1 pgs 2011 US, AGAINST THE ODDS
