1-2231017 VICTORY AT SEA Regia Marina Vittorio Venetoi The Littorio class was the first new Italian battleship class in nearly a decade when design work began in 1930. Initially designed to remain within the 35,000-ton Washington Treaty limit, the final displacement was just over 40,000 tons. As well as being good-looking ships, the Littorio-class included a number of new features including high-velocity guns. They were probably the first of the 'fast battleships' that would come to dominate capital ship design in the late 1930s and onward.

Vittorio Veneto saw extensive service in WWII, participating in the Battles of Cape Spartivento in November 1940 and Cape Matapan in March 1941. Though struck by a torpedo at this latter engagement and again hit later courtesy of a British submarine, she would escape unscathed from the British raid on Taranto of November 1940. The years 1941 and early 1942 was spent attempting to attack British convoys en route to Malta, until fuel shortages forced the end of such activity. In the armistice of 1943, she was surrendered to the Allies after Italy withdrew from the war, spending the next three years under British control in Egypt. Thereafter she was allocated to Britain as a war prize and was scrapped.

Box contains one BB Vittorio Veneto.

1-225850 Hill, Jens THE MEDIEVAL FIGHTING MAN: Costume and Equipment 800-1500 In medieval times an individual often needed to defend his life, his family and his property. Mercenaries earned their living by hiring out their skills, while feudal noblemen regularly mustered their men-at-arms and their subordinate vassals and tenants to provide military service, even to the point of leading them on Crusades to the Holy Land and elsewhere. In the later medieval period the growing cities required their citizens to take up arms as militia in defence of the community during times of external threat.

Here meticulous use is made of the sources available to enable the materials, colours and patterns used for reconstructed clothing to represent the 'real thing' as accurately as possible. Fortunately, great numbers of medieval weapons and pieces of armour survived and can now be viewed in displays, and these form the basis of the arms presented in this book. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2015 UK, THE CROWOOD PRESS

1-914153 various VAE VICTIS # 153 Cedar Mountain 1862 Magazine includes wargame covering the Battle of Cedar Mountain.

Having defeated the Union's Peninsula campaign, Confederate General Robert E. Lee decided to put pressure on Washington and regain the initiative. His first target was the new and inexperienced Army of Virginia led by the Union general John Pope. Lee dispatched General Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson to intercept the Union. The vanguard of both armies met in Culpeper County in Virginia.

The Union general Banks positioned his artillery on the ridge near Cedar Mountain and a cannon battle ensued. The Confederate general Winder, leading the southerners, was mortally wounded in action, resulting in confusion and withdrawal for the south. Upon seeing this, Stonewall advanced the reserves and led the counter-attack himself. Faced with this unexpected wave, the Union line was broken and the soldiers retreated in disorder.

The game uses the Civil War Brigade Battle system (Worthington Games).

The four-engine B-29 was at the cutting edge of aeronautical design for its time, with pressurised crew accommodation, electronic fire-control system, and remotely operated gun turrets.
