2-241290 Sanders, Richard THE STRELTSY: Russia's First Standing Forces 1500 to 1705 The Russian streltsy, created by Ivan the Terrible, were Russia's first permanent standing infantry with firearms. Examines their history, outfits, flags, and weaponry as well as showcases both flat and 3D miniatures of the streltsy in wargaming. Includes 50 pages of color plates and illustrations.

Soldiers served for life and were nicknamed as 'stirrup' troops because they were usually always near the tsar's own stirrups. Often wielding both a musket and a poleaxe, they often fought behind a 'walking city' of wooden frames against forces such as the Tartars. However, their staunch believe in rejecting western ideology caused them to alienate themselves from Peter the Great. They slaughtered his mother's family and dubbed him the Anti-Christ, ultimately leading to a failed rebellion and their complete dissolution from the Russian Army by 1720. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2024 US, ON MILITARY MATTERS LLC

1-930346 various STRATEGY & TACTICS # 346: Andrew Jackson's Battles Wargame Andrew Jackson's Battles is a two-player tactical simulation of battles on the American frontier during the early 19th century, concentrating on the two major actions (Horseshoe Bend and New Orleans). Each game in the system is based on one battle of this period, with its own map, special rules and counters representing the military formations that participated in the original action. The rules model the overall effects of weapons and tactics in an era in which regular tactics were tempered by frontier fighting, and include combat, leadership, and morale.

Each hex on the map represents 50-200 yards, depending on the scenario. Each game turn represents 10 minutes to one hour. Combat units represent anything from individual companies to wings (two or more companies) and/or battalions. Each artillery unit represents two to six guns. Leaders represent a single commander plus staff.

Components: 22x34-inch game map, 176 5/8-inch counters, and magazine.1 vol, 84 pgs 2024 US, DECISION GAMES

1-242630 Clarke, Alexander TRIBALS, BATTLES & DARINGS: The Genesis of the Modern Destroyer Details three classes of the Royal Navy: the Tribal class destroyers, heroes of the Altmark incident and the battle of Narvik; their wartime successors, the Battle class; and their postwar incarnations, the Daring class. Describes the three classes, each designed under different circumstances along destroyer lines but to general-purpose light cruiser form, from the interwar period through to the 1950s. Explains the procurement process for each class in the context of the needs and technology of the times. Analyzes these three classes side by side; examines their conception, their creation, and their operational stories; and provides an insight into ship design, operation, and culture.

1-242610 Lane, Richard LAST STAND AT LE PARADIS: The Events Leading to the SS Massacre of the Norfolks 1940 Discusses the 2nd Battalion Royal Norfolk Regiment, which were one of the first complete infantry units of the BEF to land in France. Despite casualties and members of the battalion receiving the first decorations of the war, the BEF made a stand against the Germans at the River Escaut and were eventually forced to surrender. Ninety-nine men were marched to a paddock where they were killed by their SS captors. Details how two men survived and were instrumental in bringing the SS officer responsible, Fritz Knoechlien, to justice after the war. When the remnants of the battalion reassembled in England, its strength was just five officers and 134 other ranks. The remainder had either been killed or captured as POWs.
