1-914160 various VAE VICTIS # 160: La Guerre d'ind?pendance de Bretagne The French-Breton War simulates the conflict between the Kingdom of France and the Duchy of Brittany. Confronted with France's rising power and the decline of his duchy, Francois II of Brittany, and later his daughter the Duchess Anne, attempted to form an alliance through marriage with Maximilian of Austria in order to unite the two houses. France was the preeminent country in Europe after the Hundred Years War. The great feudal Bretons were drawn to France's strength and influence and swayed between loyalty and betrayal of the Duke of Brittany. Brittany's independence was played out at the end of the century but its defeat during the battle of Saint-Aubin du Cormier on 24 July 1488 sealed its fate. The war continued for a few more years thanks to the support - gold and soldiers - of England, Spain, Gascony, and the Holy Empire. The war finally ended with the defeat of the Bretons and the marriage of Duchesse Anne to King of France Charles VIII, thereby sealing the annexation of the duchy to the kingdom.

2-213811 Cogswell, Neil LOBOSITZ TO LEUTHEN: Horace St Paul and the Seven Years War, 1756-1757 In 1756, Prince Charles of Lorraine confidently expected to be appointed to the chief command of the Austrian army once it was fully mobilised. The Prince thought sufficiently well of St Paul to offer him a post at his side as aide-de-camp and sent him to join Marshal Browne, then commanding in Bohemia, as a volunteer to learn something of soldiering. Having no regimental duties St Paul kept a journal of the day to day operations of the Austrians, thereby learning his new trade.

Day by day diary kept by Horace St Paul during the war. He is not shy to write, nothing happened, and also when the action is hottest he can be understandably brief. As a man learning his trade, he often records details of almost arcane significance.

1-229340 Thomas, Graham PIRATE KILLERS: The Royal Navy and the African Pirates Examines the Royal Navy anti-piracy campaign against African pirates, from the Mediterranean to the shores of West Africa and around to Madagascar. On the Barbary Coast of North Africa, pirates preyed on shipping in the Mediterranean. In the Atlantic, they also terrorized the populations of the coastal towns. Then, about 150 years ago, the RN killed 'The King of the Pirates' Bartholomew Roberts and captured his fleet. Scores of his men were executed by the Admiralty Court. But perhaps the most telling sections concern critical engagements, including the daring rescue of the British merchant ship The Three Sisters by HMS Polyphemus in 1848 and the actions of the HMS Prometheus against the Rif pirates a few years later. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2021 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-229320 Mingus, Scott and Cooper H. Wingert TARGETED TRACKS: The Cumberland Valley Railroad in the Civil War, 1861-1865 Examines the importance of the Cumberland Valley Railroad, which connected Hagerstown, MD, to Harrisburg, PA, and played a central role in the Union war effort. It proved a tempting target for Confederate forces, not only for its valuable rolling stock, but also the supplies it transported. Includes 28 images and 3 maps.

Northern military and railway officials coordinated its generally successful defense while often butting heads. Southern horsemen wrought havoc on the Northern war effort by tearing up its tracks, seizing or torching supplies, and laying waste to warehouses, engine houses, and passenger depots.

In October 1859, Abolitionist John Brown used the CVRR in his fateful Harpers Ferry raid. The line was under direct threat by invading Confederates during the Antietam Campaign, and the following summer suffered serious damage during the Gettysburg Campaign. In 1864, Rebel raiders burned much of its headquarters town, Chambersburg, including the homes of many CVRR employees

1-229301 Weaver, Raplh SAARBRUCK TO SEDAN: The Franco-German War 1870-1871 V1 - Uniforms, Organisation and Weapons of the Armies of the Imperial Phase of the War Describes how the armies were organized, equipped, uniformed, and supplied. Equipment is described as well as the medals many men wore on their chests. The color section illustrates many of the lesser known uniforms worn during the war. Technical innovations changed the way armies behaved in the field, railways speeded up movement, the telegraph delivered orders in a fraction of the time, and new weapons altered tactics used on the battlefield. Developments in armaments were not limited to the French, the chassepot rifle was a marvel and the mitrailleuse (a volley gun) could have been a war winner if used properly. The Bavarians had a mitrailleuse of their own design and they developed a modern rifle firing a metallic cartridge at a rate of 20 shots a minute. Includes 41 b/w illustrations, 20 pages of color plates, three maps, and six tables. 1 vol, 134 pgs 2022 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-229321 de Gabiola,Javier THE RIF WAR: Volume 1: From Taxdirt to the Disaster of Annual 1909-1921 Volume 1 examines the operations of both sides in rugged northern Morocco, North Africa, between 1909 and 1921, up to the Disaster of Annual. Within are details of the Spanish army, its organization, tactics and reforms to meet the needs of the theater, the fledgling Spanish military aviation which claimed a number of world firsts in this campaign, and their North African auxiliaries and opponents. The Rif War is illustrated with a selection of color artworks and specially commissioned maps.

Spain suffered disasters such as Barranco del Lobo and victories such as the cavalry charge in Taxdirt in 1913, and had had to face enemies such as Mizzian, El Roghi, or the famous El Raisuni. Abd-el Krim's revolt caused 8,000 Spanish deaths at Annual in 1921 in which much of the new colony was lost, at least temporarily. The war also saw the Spanish army completely reformed, reaching new levels of effectiveness with the founding of the Spanish Legion and the recruitment of Moroccan soldiers of the Regulares.
