2-225550 Harris, Michael GERMANTOWN: A Military History of the Battle for Philadelphia, October 4, 1777 Studies the strategic, political, and tactical history of this complex operation and important set-piece October 4, 1777 battle into a single compelling account. Complete with original maps, numerous illustrations, and modern photos, and told largely through the words of those who fought there.

On October 4, obscured by darkness and a heavy morning fog, Washington launched a surprise attack on the British garrison at Germantown. His early attack found initial success and drove the British legions before him. The recapture of the colonial capital seemed within Washington's grasp until poor decisions by the American high command brought about a reversal of fortune and a clear British victory. Like Brandywine, however, the bloody fight at Germantown proved that Continental soldiers could stand toe-to-toe with British Regulars. The Battle of Germantown began a protected quasi-siege of the British garrison in Germantown prior to the travails soon to come that winter at Valley Forge.1 vol, 528 pgs 2023 US, SAVAS BEATIE

1-239610 Hood, Stephen THE LOST PAPERS OF CONFEDERATE GENERAL JOHN BELL HOOD Although Hood's personal papers were thought lot or destroyed, the papers had been carefully preserved for generations by Hood's descendants. This 200+ document collection sheds important light on some of the war's lingering mysteries and controversies. For example, letters from Confederate officers help explain Hood's failure to entrap Schofield's Union army at Spring Hill, Tennessee, on November 29, 1864. Another letter by Lt. Gen. Stephen D. Lee helps to explain Maj. Gen. Patrick Cleburne's gallant but reckless conduct that resulted in his death at Franklin. Lee also lodges serious allegations against Confederate Maj. Gen. William Bate's troops. Other papers explain the purpose and intent behind Hood's 'controversial' memoir Advance and Retreat, and validate its contents. While these and others offer a military perspective of Hood the general, the revealing letters between he and Anna, his beloved and devoted wife, help us better understand Hood the man and husband.

Includes documents relating to Hood's U.S. Army service, Civil War career, and postwar life. It includes letters from Confederate and Union officers, unpublished battle reports, detailed medical reports relating to Hood's two major wounds, and dozens of letters exchanged between Hood and his wife Anna. 1 vol, 312 pgs 2023 US, SAVAS BEATIE

1-226132 Rikhye, Ravi INDO-PAKISTANI WAR OF 1971: Vol. 2 Showdown in the North-West Late in the afternoon of 3 December 1971, in an attempt to distract New Delhi from developments in its eastern territory, Pakistan initiated hostilities with India by flying a series of air strikes against the forward air bases of the Indian Air force. Thus began the 'official' part of the India-Pakistan War of 1971, a bitter conventional war of the highest intensity in the history of the two countries since their independence. Describes the battles for Kashmir, Chhamb, and Shakargarh and makes extensive use of official records and participant recollections, rare photography and original color artworks.

By 16 December, and rather suddenly, the conflict was over: once East Pakistan had been overrun by India, Pakistan had no incentive to continue fighting a war it could not possibly win.1 vol, 86 pgs 2023 UK, HELION AND COMPANY
