The Varangian Guard 988-1453
D’Amato, Raffaele
ISBN: 9781849081795
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA459. The Varangian Guards were Viking mercenaries who operated far beyond their native shores as an elite force within the Byzantine Armies. Descendants from a legendary line of warriors, the Varangian Guard was formed after a group of Viking mercenaries made a major contribution to the Byzantine Emperor Basil II’s victory over rebel forces in 988 AD. These 5,000 men were then retained as Basil’s personal guard and would provide loyal service to many successive occupants of the imperial throne. Commonly referred to as ‘foreigners’ (Etaireia), they were nonetheless absorbed into a new Palatine regiment under command of an officer termed the Akolouthos, who was either a Norsemen or a Rus (Norsemen colonisers of Russia). The Varangians wore mixtures of their native clothing and armour together with a splendid formal Byzantine uniform. But most famously, they always wielded their own traditional battle-axes and in fact this became a sign that the emperor was on the battlefield in person. This is an insightful look of one of the legendary guard units of the medieval world. Contents: Introduction, History of the Regiment, Organization, Terms of service and everyday life, Clothing, Arms and Equipment.  As New

ISBN: 1841764191
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 95 pages, ESS038. The Vietnam War was arguably the most important event, or series of events, of the "American Century." America entered the brutal conflict certain of its Cold War doctrines and certain of its moral mission to save the world from the advance of communism. As this book explains, however, the war was not at all what the United States expected. Outnumbered and outgunned the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces resorted to a guerrilla war based on the theories of Mao Zedong of China. This was war reduced to its most basic level - find the enemy and kill him.  As New

The Army of Alexander the Great
Sekunda, Nick
ISBN: 0850455391
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 1988 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA148. When Philip II ascended the throne in 359 BC, Macedonia was in danger of being engulfed by wild barbarian tribes to the north and wily Greek cities to the south. Philip had to expand the power of the throne or be swallowed up: the creation of a powerful army was imperative. When his son, Alexander, inherited his kingdom at the age of 20, he also inherited an army which was truly unrivalled. The Macedonians were veterans of battle, well equipped and eager for conquest. Add to this Alexander's supreme gifts as military commander and it is little wonder they achieved so much. Men-at-Arms 148 and Campaign 7 are also available in a single volume special edition as ‘Alexander the Great’. Contents: Introduction; Philip's Army; The Cavalry; The Infantry; The Plates.  As New

Medieval Scandinavian Armies (2): 1300-1500
Nicolle, David; Lindholm, David
ISBN: 9781841765068
Osprey Pub Co  2003 
 Soft Cover New book,48 pages, MAA399. While Scandinavia's 'Viking Age' is one of the most studied aspects of early medieval history, much less has been published about the centuries which followed. Yet the armies of Sweden, Norway and Denmark offer fascinating differences from the rest of medieval Western Europe, both in their organisation and their war gear. This second of two books covers the period which saw both expansion in the Baltic, and long wars born of the attempt to bring Scandinavia under a single monarchy - the Union of Kalmar. In the North, as elsewhere, the perfection of plate armour could not prevent the steady decline in the importance of the 15th century mounted knight in favour of the well armed infantryman. Contents: Chronology of major wars - Scandinavian army organisation 1300-1500 - Influence of the Hanseatic German cities - Weapons - Armour: from mail to plate, the Wisby graves of 1361 analysed - Tactics - Fortifications and siege warfare.  As New

Osprey Pub Co  2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA396. While Scandinavia's 'Viking Age' is one of the most studied aspects of early medieval history, much less has been published about the centuries that followed. Yet the armies of Sweden, Norway and Denmark offer fascinating differences from the rest of medieval Western Europe, both in their organisation and their war gear - due partly to their remoteness, climate and terrain, but partly to their long freedom from the feudal system of other kingdoms. This book explains the special nature of Scandinavian armies, shaped by the relative weakness of kings and aristocrats, and the contrasts between the separate nations of the North. Contents: Introduction - Chronology of major events - The passing of the Viking age - Denmark: German influence, the feudal system, the nobility, and heavy cavalry - Norway: trading centre but military backwater - Sweden: armies of the early Baltic campaigns - relations between the classes - Armour, weapons and tactics: the importance of the crossbow - Finland: a tribal frontier.  As New

ISBN: 9781846034565
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 94 pages, CAM217. From his seat in Xanadu, the great Mongol Emperor of China, Kubla Khan, had long plotted an invasion of Japan. However, it was only with the acquisition of Korea, that the Khan gained the maritime resources necessary for such a major amphibious operation. Written by expert Stephen Turnbull, this book tells the story of the two Mongol invasions of Japan against the noble Samurai. Using detailed maps, illustrations, and newly commissioned artwork, Turnbull charts the history of these great campaigns, which included numerous bloody raids on the Japanese islands, and ended with the famous kami kaze, the divine wind, that destroyed the Mongol fleet and would live in the Japanese consciousness and shape their military thinking for centuries to come.  As New

Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA455. This volume reveals the little-known story of the 90-year presence of American forces in China until the fall of Peking in 1941. Included is coverage of the first operations on the Pearl River in 1856 as well as US involvement in the Boxer Rebellion of 1900.

Finally, during the later Sino-Japanese War and early into World War II, US volunteers of the 'Flying Tigers' became renowned for their combat missions in support of Chinese Nationalist forces, and their aerial duels are also recounted by the author John P. Langellier, who has spent several years researching the subject in the US and China.

Late Roman Infantryman 236-565 AD
MacDowall, Simon
ISBN: 1855324199
Osprey Publishing, Limited Botley, Oxford, United Kingdom 1994 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, WAR009. Between the 3rd and 6th centuries AD the traditional legions of heavy infantry were whittled away and eventually replaced by a force of various arms and nationalities dominated by cavalry and supported by missile troops. However, in spite of this trend towards cavalry, the pedes remained the backbone of the Roman army until well into the 5th century. This book details a warrior who was very different from the legionary who preceded him; perhaps he was not as well disciplined, but in many ways he was more flexible, ready for deployment to trouble spots, and for fighting both as a skirmisher and a heavy infantryman. Historical Background, Chronology, Recruiting, Training, Appearance and Equipment, Conditions of Service, The Soldier on Campaign, The Experience of Battle.  As New

ISBN: 1841764787
Osprey Publishing Ltd Oxford, United Kingdom 2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG063, 8 pages of colour illustrations, many B&W illustrations. Over the centuries, naval relations between Japan and Korea appear to have alternated between peaceful trade and outright hostility. However, this impression can be misleading, as much of what passed for mercantile activity was in fact conducted by Japanese pirate fleets, who pillaged the coasts of Korea and China in a long-lasting tradition that culminated in the greatest pirate raid of all: Hideyoshi's invasion of Korea in 1592. This was the conflict that involved Ming China and almost dragged in Siam. It also led to Korea developing East Asia's most famous warship: the legendary turtle ship, which is described for the first time in full technical detail in this book. Contents: Fighting Ships and Naval Warfare in Japan and Korea, Techniques and Types of Korean Ships and Shipbuilding, Korean Shipboard Armaments, Korean Fighting Ships in Action, Techniques and Types of Japanese Ships and Shipbuilding, Japanese Shipboard Armaments, Japanese Fighting Ships in Action, Suggestions for Further Reading, Colour plate Commentary.  As New

Crusader and Covenanter Cruiser Tanks 1939-1945
Flecher, David
ISBN: 1855325128
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 1995 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG014. The Covenanter (which never saw active service) and Crusader Cruiser tanks were developed between 1939 and 1940. The Crusader first saw action in the North African desert in June 1941: its speed and sleek design made it a hard target to hit, and the tank was well-respected by the Afrikakorps for its velocity in combat. But its hurried development prior to World War II also made it prone to mechanical failure. This book examines the Covenanter and the many variants of the Crusader tank, detailing the designs, developments and disappointments of these infamous World War II tanks.

Osprey Publishing, Limited Botley, Oxford, United Kingdom 1994 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG008. The Matilda was the principal British infantry tank in the early years of World War II. It served with the BEF in France and later in North Africa, where it earned the title ‘Queen of the Desert’.

In this title, David Fletcher deals with Marks I to V. Development and operational history are discussed, along with service in other countries, including Germany and Russia. Numerous variants are also covered, including the prototype ‘Hedgehog’ bunker-busting weapon. Covers: Developmental history, Operational history, The crew, Foreign service, Variants.  As New

Friends in High Places: Air Power in Irregular Warfare
Kainikara, Sanu
ISBN: 9781920800468
Air Power Development Center  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 248 pages. Conventional military forces across the world are investigating and adopting measures to be effective in the increasing incidence of irregular wars in order to counter non-state adversaries perpetuating acts of violence in support of causes ranging from extremist political and religious ideologies, transnational crime, local insurgencies and guerrilla wars. Air power is a critical element within the holistic military capabilities of a nation and forms an indelible part of the broader national security apparatus. This book looks at the varied and critical contribution that air power makes towards the successful prosecution of irregular wars, from a military perspective. It also analyses the crucial role of air power in the strategic national security policy in relation to the current global trend of non-state entities to wage irregular wars against sovereign nations.  As New

Junkers Ju 88 Kampfgeschwader in North Africa and the Mediterranean
Weal, John
ISBN: 9781846033186
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM75. This volume follows the Luftwaffe's twin-engined "Wunderbomber" southwards to describe its deployment in North Africa and the Mediterranean theater of war - from the Straits of Gibraltar in the west, via the beleaguered island of Malta, to the Aegean and the Suez Canal in the east. It is a story of two distinct parts - the initial lightning successes, and then the long, slow process of retreat and defeat. It began early in 1941 with the first sporadic air raids on Malta, followed in the spring by the campaign in the Balkans which resulted in the conquests of Yugoslavia, Greece and Crete. After supporting land operations in North Africa during the latter half of 1941, the Ju 88s resumed their assault on Malta. However, such was their decline that by the final month of the war there was just one machine left in the Mediterranean - an improved model Ju 188, which was used to drop Axis agents behind the Allied lines in Italy. Bringing the story to life are personal accounts of some of the more famous actions - the bombing of the evacuation shipping off the coast of Greece and the sinking of three Royal Navy destroyers south of Crete by the renowned 'Helbig Flyers' of LG 1, all illustrated with rare photographs and full color profiles.  As New

The Roman Army from Hadrian to Constantine
Simkins, Michael
ISBN: 085045333X
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 1979 
 Soft Cover New book, 40 pages, MAA093. The year of 122 was the first time a Roman Emperor had set foot in the Province of Britannia since the invasion in AD 43. No doubt he had read many reports concerning the damage caused by marauding tribesmen crossing from what is now Scotland into the Province. Hadrian, therefore, decided - in the words of his biographer - 'to build a wall to separate the Romans from the Barbarians'. This engaging work from author Michael Simkins explores in depth the organisation, equipment, weapons and armour of the Roman Army from Hadrian to Constantine, one of the most exciting periods in Roman history.  As New

Medieval Heraldry
Wise, Terence
ISBN: 0850453488
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 1980 
 Soft Cover New book, 40 pages, MAA099. Coats of arms were at first used only by kings and princes, then by their great nobles, but by the mid-13th century arms were being used extensively by the lesser nobility, knights and those who later came to be styled gentlemen. In some countries the use of arms spread even to merchants, townspeople and the peasantry. From the mundane to the fantastic, from simple geometric patterns to elaborate mythological beasts, this fascinating work by Terence Wise explores the origins and appearance of medieval heraldic devices in an engagingly readable style accompanied by numerous illustrations including eight full page colour plates by Richard Hook.  As New

It would last over thirty years. The rule of the Manchu dynasty, weakened by the Boxer rebellion in 1900 and the passing of the Guangxu Emperor in 1908, was in its death throes. The new Emperor, Pu-Yi was only a boy and largely secluded in the Forbidden City. The string of military defeats begun in the Sino-Japanese war of 1894 had convinced military leaders that they should modernize. The process took some time but by 1910 China had an army of about 200,000 well trained and equipped troops with some 800,000 poorly armed militia. By 1910 the regular Chinese Imperial Army was wearing uniforms of largely European cut, although some vestiges of the old uniforms were in evidence. This is the army that Ruhl depicts in some detail in this booklet. Apart from uniforms, there are plates of badges, facing colors, headgear and accoutrements. Ironically a year later over a thousand years of Chinese Imperial rule would come to an end and it was the bulk of that Imperial army that would overthrow it.  As New

The units of Sardinia, Naples, the Papal States, Tuscany, Parma and Modena all took their place in the order of battle along with newly created regiments from Lombardy. When Venice was liberated in 1866 their forces were added. Welding this army as an effective fighting force was not easy. Calabrians and Lombards were not enamored of each other and Sicilians, unsurprisingly, liked no one. It was decided that, unlike other European armies and despite the regional regimental names, their makeup would be from the wider population. Initially results were mixed and fights and even murders took place, but eventually the system worked. King Humbert I, who reigned from 1878 until his assassination in 1901, left his stamp on the era. It was marked by Italy’s first colonial adventures in Eritrea and Abyssinia on the Horn of Africa which ended badly at Adowa in 1898. The first uniforms were naturally of Sardinian pattern and in the early 1870s it was decided to create a national uniform. This uniform would remain characteristic of the Italian army until the early nineteen hundreds and in many respects, especially in the Bersaglieri, Alpini and cavalry regiments, elements survive to this day. Moritz Ruhls plates show the uniforms and badges from the 1880s to 1902. He includes schematic details of all branches. Unfortunately, he does not include any of the colonial uniforms worn.

Der Alte Fritz: The Military Life of Frederick the Great: Volume I
no author
Uniformology  2009 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** These two delightful volumes chronicle the military life of Frederick the Great. Originally in a single volume, this work was published in 1895 and was a collaboration between two of Germany’s greatest military artists; Richard Knötel and Carl Röchling. The former was famous for his Uniformenkunde; the eighteen volume set of more that one thousand illustrations of the worlds uniforms. Carl Röchling was a member of the Berlin Academy of Art and was well known for his panoramic paintings of famous Prussian battles such as his scenes from the Battle of Leuthen (1757) and the Battle of Sedan (1870). His series on the Franco-Prussian War remains his greatest legacy. "Der Alte Fritz in 50 Bildern für Jung und Alt" was a children’s book produced in a style very typical for its era. A scene from most of Frederick’s battles are illustrated, including Mollwitz, Hohenfreidburg, Leuthen, Rossbach and Hochkirk. The scenes are mostly whimsical as is appropriate for publications aimed at children but the depictions are reasonably accurate. Any collector of illustrations and ephemera from the eighteenth century will enjoy these books. Volume 1 covers his younger life to the early Seven Years War and Volume 2 until his death. Each volume has 21 plates.  As New

The British Army of 1885: With Illustrations from Walter Richards "Her Majesty’s Army"
Bassett-Powell, Bruce
Uniformology Weatherford, Texas 2007 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** The last twenty years of Queen Victoria’s reign saw the British Empire reach the height of its power. The Royal Navy kept the sea-lanes open and safe for British and world commerce to pursue peaceful trade across the oceans. The far flung colonies were protected by the British Army who were often caught in sharp conflicts with native populations who had yet to realize the benefits of British Rule. In 1885 the British Army had finally, through a series of reforms beginning in 1868, shaken off the ghosts of the Crimean War that had laid bare the parlous conditions within its organization. However, it was an army designed for colonial brush fires, not European warfare. Over two centuries the army had been sustained by its regimental system and in 1885 it was as entrenched as ever. Walter Richards produced a three-volume work describing this army and that of its colonies. The illustrations in these volumes show the home service and dress uniforms of the home army at the time and a complete and a detailed description of the uniforms of all the regiments and corps appears in the accompanying text.  As New

German Pionier 1939-45: Combat Engineer of the Wehrmacht
Rottman, Gordon
ISBN: 9781846035784
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, WAR146, 64 pages. The German Army of World War II collectively referred to its various engineer units as Pioniere (Pioneers). This organization included Pioniertruppen (Pioneer Troops), Bautruppen (Construction Troops), Eisenbahntruppen (Railway Troops), and Technische Truppen (Technical Troops). They were first and foremost assault troops, and construction workers second. They were tasked with overcoming manmade and natural obstacles, and in the attack they supported the infantry as specialist assault troops, attacking fortified positions with demolitions and flamethrowers. In the defence they constructed fortifications and shelters, erected obstacles, laid minefields, planted booby traps, cleared fields of fire, erected camouflage, and maintained supply routes. This book examines the recruitment and special training of a German Pionier. It also covers life in the field while on campaign, their role in supporting infantry assaults. Contents: Introduction, Recruitment, Training, Rank, Daily Life, Appearance, Belief & Belonging, On Campaign, Life in the Field, Experience in Battle, the Aftermath of Battle, Glossary, Bibliography, Index.  As New

The Wolseley Helmet in Pictures from Omdurman to El Alamein
Bates, Stuart; Suciu, Peter
ISBN: 9780980656701
PSB Publishing  2009 
 Pictorial Cover New book, 127 pages, 240+ photos, many in colour. Over the years, nothing has identified the colonial soldier more than his sun helmet. This was especially true for the British 'Tommy' of the Victorian Era. The Sun helmet, variously known as the pith helmet or topi, was not limited to soldiers of the Crown. A number of countries, many of whom were members of the British Commonwealth but also countries with no historical ties or political allegiance to Britain wore sun helmets of one pattern or another. The authors, who previously co-authored Military Sun Helmets of the World, have brought together a remarkable sampling of "Wolseleys" from around the world. Working primarily from their own comprehensive collections they have located additional rare examples for inclusion as well as contemporary photographs of the helmet in wear. Combined, this photographic study offers the collector the first reference dedicated to this unique item of headdress.  As New

Crowood Press  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages. After World War Two the rapid advance of communism and associated political instability threatened Great Britain's interests in the Far East. From 1948 until around 1967, troops were deployed throughout the Malaysian region. To equip the British soldier and Commonwealth troops for jungle warfare the 1944 pattern 'jungle' webbing, designed during WW2, was issues.

Brought together into one reference book, the contects include: Components of post-war 1944 pattern webbing; 1944 pattern equipment modifications in the 1960s; 1944 pattern ancillary webbing items, bayonets and radio packs; Small arms used during the conflicts, and carriage of their ammunition; Special forces bespoke webbing; Typical customization of infantry belt kits; Items comprising the 1958 pattern webbing equipment set.  As New

Desert Prelude: Early Clashes June - November 1940
Gustavsson, Hakan; Slongo, Ludovico
ISBN: 9788389450524
Mushroom Model Publications  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 224 pages. The campaign in North Africa in 1940, between Italian and Commonwealth forces, has been little studied or written about. In this, the first of two volumes, the air war from June to November of 1940 is described, along with the associated ground and naval campaigns. For the British and allied forces this was a minor campaign, involving mostly aircraft types considered obsolete elsewhere, and this was the last aerial battlefield between biplane fighters. Nonetheless on both the Italian and British sides the top aces of WW2 made their mark, Teresio Martinoli and Thomas "Pat" Pattle respectively. Profusely illustrated with many rare photos, plus maps and colour profiles, these books are a tribute to those who fought in a forgotten, but significant, campaign. Volume 2, "Desert Prelude - Operation Compass", will complete the story.  As New

Modern British Webbing Equipment
Howland, Simon
ISBN: 9781847971401
Crowood Press  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, 125+ colour photos. Since the end of World War Two, and the increasing threat of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) warfare during the Cold War, equipment designers have focused on building NBC protection and decontamination into the British soldiers webbing equipment. The capabilities of 1958 pattern webbing in this respect were known to be very poor, yet it was not until the exposure of its shortcomings during the Falkland War of 1982 that a suitable nylon based load carrying equipment was developed. The 1991 Gulf War, various peace keeping commitments throughout the 1990s and the more recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have all influenced modern British webbing designs. The latest webbing equipmentissued today provides ballistic body armour protection as well as NBC protection and a flexible, modular load carrying system. Researched and written by a militaria enthusiast, this book explores the development of British webbing equipment starting with the 1958 pattern equipment right up to modern day modular concepts. Packed with information and illustrated throughout, the contents include: The 1958 pattern webbing; Experimental webbing concepts; Personal Load Carrying Equipment (PLCE); Chest webbig; Modular webbing (MOLLE); Osprey and Kestrel body armour equipment; Small Arms 80 (SA80) development; Nuclear Biological and Chemical (NBC) equipment.  As New

Panzer Tracts Boyds, MD 2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 56 pages, No.2-2. As a result of digging through public and private archives for 38 years, we are able to create this accurate history of the very rare variants from the Pz.Kpfw.II family - the VK 901, VK 903, VK 1301, VK 1303, and VK 1601. Original drawings, documented measurements, and original wartime photographs were used to create four-view drawings of the VK 901 and VK 1601 (printed at 1/35th scale). Over a thousand hours were spent precisely measuring external details of the "Luchs" in order to create as-built drawings of all six views (including right side and belly) with both the VK 1301 and VK 1303 turrets in 1/24th scale. Even the smallest details are clearly discernable in the component drawings at 1/10th scale including the surprise feature of an Orterkompass mounted on the turret roof. This 56 page book is illustrated with over 50 drawings and 41 clean/rare photos.  As New

The Austrian Army 1888
Bassett-Powell, Bruce; Cranz Philip
Uniformology  2008 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** The Austrian Army went through vast changes after their defeat in 1866. By 1888 there were three armies in the new Austro-Hungarian Empire; The Regular (KuK), the KK Landwehr and the Hungarian Honved. Huge organizational changes were also made including conscription and the creation of All-Arms Divisions based on the German model. In matters of uniform, the infantry’s white coats were gone, replaced by blue and all the cavalry wore red trousers. Ruhl’s plates while very general and somewhat imprecise, give an excellent all round view of the Austro-Hungarian armed forces of the period.  As New

Der Alte Fritz: The Military Life of Frederick the Great: Volume II
no author
Uniformology  2009 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** These two delightful volumes chronicle the military life of Frederick the Great. Originally in a single volume, this work was published in 1895 and was a collaboration between two of Germany’s greatest military artists; Richard Knötel and Carl Röchling. The former was famous for his Uniformenkunde; the eighteen volume set of more that one thousand illustrations of the worlds uniforms. Carl Röchling was a member of the Berlin Academy of Art and was well known for his panoramic paintings of famous Prussian battles such as his scenes from the Battle of Leuthen (1757) and the Battle of Sedan (1870). His series on the Franco-Prussian War remains his greatest legacy. "Der Alte Fritz in 50 Bildern für Jung und Alt" was a children’s book produced in a style very typical for its era. A scene from most of Frederick’s battles are illustrated, including Mollwitz, Hohenfreidburg, Leuthen, Rossbach and Hochkirk. The scenes are mostly whimsical as is appropriate for publications aimed at children but the depictions are reasonably accurate. Any collector of illustrations and ephemera from the eighteenth century will enjoy these books. Volume 1 covers his younger life to the early Seven Years War and Volume 2 until his death. Each volume has 21 plates.  As New

 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** Ever since armies began to wear uniforms, senior officers have set out to sartorially distinguish themselves from men they commanded. Inevitably this led to excess and puffery but, on the whole most generals and their staffs dressed simply and comfortably in the field. France was much the same as other countries in the profuse use of gold lace (usually of a floral design such as laurels or oak leaves) and by the Napoleonic Wars uniforms reached their zenith. However, by the end of the nineteenth century, despite a preponderance of gold lace, General Officers were wearing simpler attire. Lienhart and Humbert included an important study of the uniforms of General and staff officers in their 1904 work and it is reproduced here with all the minutia and detail provided.

Plans were therefore made to update the Parade uniforms of the army and the new Parade Uniform regulations were issued in 1915. Essentially, the old uniform details such as facings, pipings and lace remained the same as before the war, except that the basic color of the uniform was Field Grey for all branches. History was not kind to these plans. As the war deepened it became apparent that new dress uniforms would be a matter decided at the end of the war. Consequently few of these uniforms were ever issued and then mostly to officers.

The Russian Army of the Napoleonic Wars
Sorensen, Peter
Uniformology  2009 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** Besides Great Britain, no nation was more implacably opposed to Napoleonic France than Russia. During the French Revolution, Russian armies successfully prevented French invasion by assisting their allies, the Austrians in Italy and the British in the Mediterranean and Netherlands. Joining the early Coalitions against the Emperor, the Russian armies suffered defeat at Austerlitz (1805), Eylau and Friedland (1807). The ensuing treaties of Tilsit the same year became a national humiliation for Russia despite a certain admiration for Napoleon by Alexander I, not shared by his nobles. Bonaparte’s fatal invasion of Russia in 1812 became Russia’s epiphany and remains so to this day. Over the entire period, the quality and management of the Russian army rose and fell with regularity. The Potemkin reforms of the 1780s were dramatically reversed by Czar Paul I which in turn were changed by Alexander I. It was the appointment of Barclay de Tolly which may have prepared the Russian Army for its ultimate test in 1812. This volume, superbly written by Peter Sorensen has 16 beautifully restored Knotel color prints and one original painting by Bruce Bassett-Powell.  As New

The French Infantry 1740-1764
Cranz, Philip
Uniformology  2008 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** From the beginning of the eighteenth century to the Revolution, the French army represented one of the largest military forces in the world. It was involved in nearly every conflict from the War of Spanish Succession to the American War of Independence and its troops were garrisoned not only in France but India , Canada and the West Indies . For the entire period of this book, Louis XV reigned (1715-1774) and when he came of age in 1723, he took a great interest in his army and especially in matters of dress. Like every other 18th century army, the infantry constituted by far the largest component and the study of its uniforms during the period offers quite a challenge. There were numerous changes, in both substance and small details, especially from about 1725, and like every army of the time the regulations often not only overlapped, but colonels were not inclined to replace clothing until the old articles had worn out. Records of the uniforms were meticulously kept but it fell to two 19th century artists to present them in some order. These were Lucien Mouillard and Alfred de Marbot and later historians and artists such as Leinhert & Humbert were to rely heavily on their work. This volume documents the work of Marbot, including his schematics of which reproduction has been rare. The 18 full color plates of uniforms and 121 schematics, with a very informative text, give a very complete representation of French Infantry uniforms during the War of Austrian Succession and the Seven Years War.  As New

Bassett-Powell, Bruce
Uniformology  2008 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** The Seven Years War (1756-1763) was probably the first true World War with the conflict being waged not only in Europe, but in the Indian sub-continent, the West Indies and North America. In Europe, the armies of Austria, France, Prussia, Russia and Great Britain, not to mention a score of German kingdoms, principalities and dukedoms battled for the balance of power on the continent. For Prussia and Frederick the Great, the war was a continuation of the War of Austrian Succession (1740-1748) which contested the rights of Maria Theresa to the Hapsburg throne. Although the Prussian army was mostly made up of regulars, a large number of volunteers, soldiers of fortune and freebooters were assembled into units by, usually wealthy, soldiers of fortune who offered their services to the Prussian King. These units were known as Freikorps and proved to be of limited value militarily. However, they served as line of communications troops, scouts and, more often than not, harassing forces who put the fear of God into stragglers and the civilian population. Some of these units even changed sides and both Austria and France would employ their own Free corps or Legions. This volume examines these corps, detailing their history (where known) and describing their uniforms. Finely restored illustrations by Philip Cranz of Knotel and Marbot prints provide the color plates along with two by the author.  As New

These units were known as Freikorps and proved to be of limited value militarily. However, they served as line of communications troops, scouts and, more often than not, harassing forces who put the fear of God into stragglers and the civilian population. Some of these units even changed sides and both Austria and France would employ their own Free corps or Legions. This volume examines these corps, detailing their history (where known) and describing their uniforms. Finely restored illustrations by Philip Cranz of Knotel and Marbot prints provide the color plates along with two by the author.  As New

Celluloid Anzacs: The Great War Through Australian Cinema
Reynaud, Daniel
ISBN: 1740971280
Australian Scholarly Publishing  2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 281 pages. Of all the way the Anzac legend has been transmitted, cinema, with its emotive power, has been among the most influential. Celluloid Anzacs is the first study of how the Great War Anzac legend has been portrayed in Australian film and television productions over 80 years. Author Daniel Reynaud traces the evolving image of Anzac from its origins as a derivative of British military myths to the controversial early days of its Australian identity in the interwar years, when the legend adopted the comic and lean bushman as its archetypical hero, and then to its depiction in the nationalistic fervour of the 1980s, when the legend finally acquired its exclusively Australian identy and sharp anti-British edge. By building the story into the broader Australian context, the book shows how films have both shaped and been shaped by on of Australia's most cherished and defining national mythologies.  As New

 Soft Cover New book, 66 pages. This is the story of the British Navy in action in the eastern Mediterranean from September 1939 to March 1941. During this time British supremacy was vigorously asserted at Taranto and Matapan. Although essentially a naval story, its significance in world strategy should not be overlooked. For if the British Navy had not maintained control of the easter basin, the whole Middle Eastern position would have been at risk from the Axis Powers. This facsimile edition contains contemporary maps, air reconnaissance photographs of the fleets and photographs of them in action.  Very Good

Strongholds of the Picts: The fortifications of Dark Age Scotland
Konstam, Angus
ISBN: 9781846036866
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, FOR92. When the Romans withdrew from Britain, the north of the country was ruled by the most mysterious of the ancient British races, the Picts. Much of what is known about these 'painted' warriors, comes from the remains of the fortifications that they left scattered around Scotland. Although the Picts are famous as sea raiders, they were also subjected to attacks from a number of opponents. To their south, the Romano-British reoccupied the abandoned Roman fortifications and hired Saxon mercenaries to strike against the Picts. Meanwhile, from the west a new group, the Scoti, attacked from Ireland. This book covers the fortification of the ancient Picts in all their conflicts and discusses the importance of these sites as religious centres and seats of power, while using the latest archeological evidence to help unravel the mystery of this ancient race. Contents: Introduction, Chronology, The Early Historic forts of Scotland, Dundurn and Dunadd: a tour of two great strongholds, The principles of defence, The living sites, The sites in war, Aftermath, The sites today, Further reading, Glossary, Index.  As New

German Battleships 1914-18 (1): Deutschland, Nassau and Helgoland Classes
Staff, Gary
ISBN: 9781846034671
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG164. In the build up to World War I, the German Imperial Navy underwnt a period of revolutionary change and rapid manufacture. While already possessed of a powerful navy, spearheaded by the Deutschland class battleships, the introduction of the Royal Navy's HSM Dreadnought - the first of the all-big-gun warships - sparked an arms race that saw Germany channel considerable resources into developing a rival to this new type of foe. The Nassau class and, shortly thereafter, the Helgoland class were the first of Germany's efforts. With more armour and firepower than their predecessors, these new larger designs would see much combat during the war, notably at Dogger Bank and Jutland. The story of these naval powerhouses is vividly brought to life with official drawings and documents, through design and development analysis, and operational accounts for all the ships of these pioneering classes.  As New

 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, RAID08. On the night of 7 December, 1942, five canoes were launched off the mouth of the Gironde river, each containing a pair of British Commandos tasked with slipping into the port of Bordeaux and destroying as many of the merchant ships docked there as possible. Only two of the canoes made it to the target, but it was enough. Five enemy ships were badly damaged in the attack. It then became a game of cat and mouse for the surviving commandos in their attempt to get back to Britain. Some of the men made it to Gibraltar; others were caught and executed. Author Ken Ford gives a blow by blow account of one of the most daring raids of World War II, which badly upset the flow of material into Germany, and which gave the British public a much-needed victory to celebrate.  As New

Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Hard Cover New book, 288 pages. Out of the last 3,500 years of our ‘civilised’ world, only for 230 have we been at peace. In The Heat of Battle features those who by rising to the occasion on the battlefield or failing to do so turned the course of history. For some military leaders or politicians their actions ensured they would forever be thought of as heroes. Others made such bad decisions that they would be marked down as abject failures. While for a few well known military leaders, this is a hidden instance in a previously glorious career when they got it wrong, spectacularly. Written by bestselling author Donough O’Brien, In The Heat of Battle spans the full history of warfare, from Mark Anthony to Rommel and Stalin to Saddam Hussein. Educating, enthralling and entertaining, this is an insightful glance into how reputations can be made or destroyed by a single, fateful decision.  As New/As New

The news surprised all the lords of the Western world and in particular William, Duke of Normandy: the kingdom came down to him. He immediately prepared an impressive military expedition and, on 28 September, he landed on the English coast near Hastings For the second edition of the reconstruction of this battle, the organisers managed to gather together 2000 'reconstitutioners' wearing XI Century costumes. According to the official statistics there are 132 bowmen, 91 horsemen and 1,279 foot soldiers, more than 1,500 combatants in all. To these must be added 491 non-combatants including several children. This makes for about a tenth of the number of people really present at the battle in 1066. Relive this extraordinary day on the very same terrain by means of more than 160 colour photos taken during this battle in which the fate of England was played out, as was the future of France.  As New

F6F Hellcat at War
Graff, Cory
ISBN: 9780760333068
Zenith Press  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 160 pages. Descended from the F4F Wildcat (and sometimes called the Wildcat's "big brother"), the Grumman F6F Hellcat debuted with the Pacific Fleet in mid-1943 and soon was taking on Japanese Zero fighters. Over the next two years, the Hellcat proved to be the most successful fighter aircraft in naval history - with more than 5,000 air-to-air kills in the Pacific, and the highest kill/loss ratio of any American fighter plane in Army, Navy, or Marine service during World War II. Taking advantage of the Hellcat's combination of easy handling and lethality, more than 300 of its pilots achieved "ace" status. This lavishly illustrated book offers a thrilling look at the Hellcat at war--from its first action in September 1943, when fighters off the USS Independence shot down a spying seaplane, to its service with the British Fleet Air Arm and its part in the invasion of Southern France. Detailing the Hellcat's design and development, telling its pilots war stories, and tracing the aircraft's adventures through the end of World War II, this book is a fitting and fascinating tribute to a fighter plane whose performance in a few short years remains unmatched in the annals of naval warfare.  As New

The Indian Mutiny 1857-58
Fremont-Barnes, Gregory
ISBN: 9781846032097
Osprey Pub Co  2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ESS068. In the mid-19th century, India was the focus of Britain's international prestige and commercial power - the most important colony in an empire which extended to every continent on the globe and protected by the seemingly dependable native armies of the East India Company. When, however, in 1857 discontent exploded into open rebellion, Britain was obliged to field its largest army in forty years to defend its 'jewel in the crown'. This book, drawing on the latest sources as well as numerous first-hand accounts, explains why the sepoy armies rose up against the world's leading imperial power, details the major phases of the fighting, including the massacres at Cawnpore and the epic sieges of Delhi and Lucknow, and examines many other aspects of this compelling, at times horrifying, subject. Contents: Introduction; Chronology; Background to war; Warring sides; Outbreak; The fighting; Portrait of a soldier; The world around war; Portrait of a civilian; How the war ended; Conclusion and consequences; Further reading; Index.  As New

Brewster F2A Buffalo Aces of World War 2
Stenman, Kari; Thomas, Andrew
ISBN: 9781846034817
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE91. Although designed and built for the US Navy, the F2A fought in only one major US engagement, the battle of Midway, in which F2A pilots managed to shoot down a number of Japanese fighters. Soon replaced by the navy, the F2A was exported to Britain, where it was nicknamed the 'Buffalo' thanks to its stubby appearance. The British sent most of these fighters to the Far East where they were used in the defence of Singapore and Malaya. It was in the Winter War, however, that the F2A truly found a home. Calling the plane simply the Brewster, the Finnish flew it against the invading Russians. Overall 37 Finns achieved ace status flying the Brewster, and it was the Finnish fighter of choice until succeeded by the Bf 109 in 1943. Contents: Chapter 1 - The Peanut Special: Brief technical description of the development of the F-2A and its selection. Fielding by US Navy. Initial carrier-borne service with US Navy and use pre war by a number of future leading US aces. Selection by some European nations & subsequent adoption by Britain. Sale of Brewster 239s to Finland and delivery. Chapter 2 - An Unloved Fighter Service with the first Eagle squadron in England. Deployment and operational use with the Royal Navy in Egypt and Crete. Fielding by the RAF for the air defence in the Far East and Burma. Chapter 3 - Finnish Triumph - Service with the Finnish Air Force against the Soviets; Chapter 4 - The Rising Sun: RAF service in Malaya against the Japanese. Neth EIAF service use against Japanese.

Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG089. The catapult (katapeltikon) was invented under the patronage of Dionysius I, tyrant of Syracuse, in the 4th century bc. At first only the arrow-firing variant was used, and it was not until the reign of Alexander the Great that stone-projecting catapults were introduced. The Romans adopted these weapons during the Punic Wars and further developed them, before introducing the new arrow-firing ballista and stone-throwing onager. This title traces the often controversial design, development and construction of these weapons throughout the history of the classical world.  As New

The Greek and Persian Wars, 499-386 BC
De Souza, Philip
ISBN: 1841763586
Osprey Publishing, Limited Oxford, United Kingdom 2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 95 pages, ESS036. This book covers one of the defining periods of European history. The series of wars between the Classical Greeks and the Persian Empire produced the famous battles of Marathon, Thermopylae and Salamis, as well as an ill-fated attempt to overthrow the Persian king in 400 BC, which helped to inspire the conquests of Alexander the Great.To tell the story of these momentous events, of the lives of great men and women, of the societies and cultures that produced them, and to explain how and why they came into conflict was the aim of Herodotus, 'the Father of History', whose account of the wars is our principal source and the first book to be called a 'history'.  As New

Imperial Armies of the Thirty Years War (1): Infantry and Artillery
Brnardic, Vladimir
ISBN: 9781846034473
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA457. This history of the Catholic armies of the Hapsburg Empire that fought in the Thirty Years War explores the role of infantry and artillery during the last major religious war in mainland Europe. As the states of the Holy Roman Empire fractured along religious lines, all of Europe was plunged into a bloody conflict that lasted three decades, decimated populations, and annihilated communities. However, amidst this social, political, and religious catastrophe, important changes were experienced within the organization of armed forces. The war saw the end of the large mercenary forces and the beginnings of the well-disciplined national army. This book charts this progression, illustrating and explaining the forces of the key Catholic armies, while exploring the weapons, organization, tactics, and colourful uniforms used by the infantry and artillery.  As New

Fighting Ships of World War II
Marriot, Leo
ISBN: 1840374160
Airlife Publishing  2004 
 Soft Cover New book, 112 pages. This book includes the principle ships that were engaged in the war at sea between 1939 and 1945. The mighty battleships and cruisers that roamed the oceans, great aircraft carriers deployed in the Mediterranean and Pacific campaigns and teh hard-pressed destroyers and U boats engaged in the Battle of the Atlantic are all described and illustrated. The proudest ships of the British, American, German, Italian, French and Japanese navies evoke memories of the momentous sea battles that changed the course of the war. Bismark, Scharnhorst, Hood, Ark Royal, Enterprise and Yamato are well known large capital ships, but most of the smaller ships were better known by their class, and names like Tribal, Fletcher and Buckley represent many of the numerous work horses of naval might. The book is divided into sections on battleships and battlecruisers, aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers and submarines. Specifications include displacement, length, draught, power plant, speed and range, complement and weapons.  As New

Union Troops of the American Civil War
Sutherland, Jonathan
ISBN: 186126769X
Crowood Press  2005 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages. A catastrophic and ruinous civil war raged across the fledgling United States between 1861 and 1865. The conflict pitted brother against brother, father against son and friend against friend. This book minutely examines the uniforms and equipment of the Union troops of, primarily, the Northern United States. 'Billy Yanks' or, as the Confederates called them rather less flatteringly, 'Blue Bellies', were recruited in vast numbers. First, second or third generation European immigrants and others from further afield flooded the ranks of the Union armies. After 1863 African Americans were recruited in huge numbers, following the Emancipation Declaration. Although they often outnumbered the Confederates, the Union troops were usually poorly led and trained, yet by force of arms they crushed the rebellion, culminating in Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox in 1865. This book examines not only the uniforms, but also the equipment, weapons, battle flags, tactics and organisation of the Union infantrymen, artillery and cavalry. It is concise and fact-packed, with over 100 full colour photographs of re-enactors equipped with accurate replica and original uniforms and equipment in action and at rest. It will be indispensable for military historians, collectors, wargamers and re-enactors.  As New

 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** We have already chronicled the story of the Volunteer, Landwehr and National cavalry units in the War of Liberation. This is the story of the regular regiments that survived the catastrophe of 1806 and would remain in service until 1918. Cuirassiers, dragoons and hussars, some tracing their lineage back to the Great Elector’s time would reform and combine to form an effective cavalry force that enthusiastically took on Napoleon’s cavalry in 1813. We also show the artillery and ancillary corps that made up the Prussian army and were essential to its efficiency. Remastered Knötel plates and illustrations from Bruce Bassett-Powell combine with a lively text to become an important addition to the literature of the Napoleonic wars.  As New

The Army of Hannover 1816-1850
Embree, Michael G.
Uniformology  2008 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** Since 1714, the King of England was also the Elector of Hanover which at that time allowed him to participate in the choice of Holy Roman Emperor. It is therefore not surprising that British and Hanoverian troops often fought alongside each other. In the Seven Years War they shared the great victory of their Infantry regiments at Minden in 1759. When Hanover was overrun by Napoleon’s armies in 1806, their soldiers sought employment with British forces rather than fight for the Corsican. The King’s German Legion, composed of Hanoverian soldiers became one of the most effective units in Wellington’s Army. In 1816 a long peace began in Europe and Hanover became part of the German confederation. As long as the English and Hanoverian monarchs were male they ruled both countries, but on the death of William IV, Hanover separated. The scarlet uniforms worn by Hanover until 1837 were changed to Prussian blue. This volume follows the history of the Hanoverian Army until 1850, when a distinct difference of opinion grew between Hanover and Prussia. Their backing of Austria in 1866 led to their incorporation into Prussia, later Imperial Germany. The lively and informative text is accompanied by 20 magnificent Knötel illustrations wonderfully restored by Philip Cranz.   As New

When Hanover was overrun by Napoleon’s armies in 1806, their soldiers sought employment with British forces rather than fight for the Corsican. The King’s German Legion, composed of Hanoverian soldiers became one of the most effective units in Wellington’s Army. In 1816 a long peace began in Europe and Hanover became part of the German confederation. As long as the English and Hanoverian monarchs were male they ruled both countries, but on the death of William IV, Hanover separated. The scarlet uniforms worn by Hanover until 1837 were changed to Prussian blue. This volume follows the history of the Hanoverian Army until 1850, when a distinct difference of opinion grew between Hanover and Prussia. Their backing of Austria in 1866 led to their incorporation into Prussia, later Imperial Germany. The lively and informative text is accompanied by 20 magnificent Knötel illustrations wonderfully restored by Philip Cranz.   As New

Uniformology  2008 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** This second volume on the Army of Spain during American War of Independence provides an insight into the decisive Battle of Pensacola where the Spanish Colonial Army under Bernado de Galvez finally ended British dominance in West Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. The early setback of a hurricane in October 1780 delayed his plans and sent his fleet back to Havana to refit. Finally Galvez, with a force of 7,800 arrived off Pensacola and began the siege in March of 1781. Outnumbered more than five to one, the heroic British resistance was eventually overcome in May. The illustrations by the Spanish artists José Bueno and Lull, commissioned by the late Bob Cowan, provide a wonderful pictorial account of the Spanish and colonial forces of the time. This is an essential volume to complete any collection on the uniforms of the War of Independence.  As New

Uniforms of the War of Liberation 1813-1814: Volume II Prussian Infantry - Regular, Reserve, Landwehr
Bassett-Powell, Bruce
Uniformology Weatherford, Texas 2007 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** When Prussia defected from his cause in 1813, Napoleon’s response was immediate and massive. With his amazing organizational skills he brought together an army of over 200,000 men to restore his German conquests. As the Prussians, with their Russian allies scrambled to meet the threat he moved his newly raised battalions to link up with the considerable French forces in Prussia. After some preliminary skirmishes the two armies were set to clash at Lützen in early May. That battle and the later one at Bautzen forced the Allies into retreat But it was not a decisive victory for the French Emperor and his Prussian and Russian enemies, combined with an old enemy Austria, would recover and turn the tide at Leipzig in October 1813. The Prussian Army had few resources at the beginning of 1813, but with an immense effort, they put together an army that contained a core of regulars with a large number of reservists and the fabled Landwehr, raised in March. Most of these soldiers were infantrymen and it is their story we tell in this second volume on the War of Liberation. With painstaking research the author has put together a detailed account of the Prussian regular Infantry, Reserve Regiments, Landwehr and Volunteer Jäger battalions. Their formation, the actions they fought and the uniforms they wore are all explained in great detail, all complemented by Philip Cranz’s wonderfully restored illustrations of Richard and Herbert Knötel plus an additional full color illustration from the author.  As New

Type VII U-Boats
Stern, Robert C.
ISBN: 1860198554
Brockhampton Press United Kingdom 2004 
 Hard Cover New book, 160 pages. Over 700 examples of this superb submarine were built, making it by far the most numerous type of U-boat and fully deserving of this study. Robert C. Stern looks in detail at how the various technological elements of this advanced weapon system worked and how the crewmen operated to maximise its effectiveness in action. He traces the development and design of the class together with the crucial offensive and defensive components it took to sea: torpedo and gun types; radio, hydrophones, radar decoys and sonar counter-measures; mines; and a host of other innovative items. Interviews with U-boat veterans and access to plentiful naval records have given the author the means to provide a fascinating insight into both life aboard a cramped vessel (food storage, sanitation, etc) and the practical methods used both to track and destroy the enemy an to avoid his often fatal searches. This book is illustrated with a marvellous selection of 160 photographs, and several dozen line drawings. With its appendix on paint schemes, boats built and a profile of Donitz, this is a valuable contribution to the study of the U-boat arm.  As New/As New

ISBN: 9780297853336
Weidenfeld & Nicolson  2007

Tellinf the story from the Japanese point of view, at the heart of this story is the maverick general Tadamichi Kuriyabashi, devoted family man and brilliant battlefield commander. As Clint Eastwood comments, 'General Kuribayashi was a unique guy. He liked America. He thought it was a mistake to go to war'. Unlike most Japanese officers, he had traveled abroad, spent time in America, and was under no illusions as to the ultimate end. Kumiko Kakehashi's heart-rending account is based on the letters written home by the doomed soldiers on the island, mostly family men, conscripted late in the war.  As New

 Soft Cover New book, 223 pages. Colditz was the last stop for prisoners of war in World War Two. An impregnable fortress, it was to Colditz that the Germans sent all those prisoners who persisted in escaping from other camps, such as Stalag Luft III (of The Great Escape fame). Once within the walls of Colditz, the Germans reasoned, escape was impossible. And yet during the four year period when the caslte was used as a prison over 300 men escaped. The ingenuity of the escape artists knew no bounds: they tried everything from tunnelling, to hiding in rubish sacks, disguising themselves as German officers, and leaping acrobatically from the castle walls.  Very Good

The book chronicles the impact of the war for civilians and soldiers alike, from the horrors of combat to antiwar demonstrations in the United States to the final withdrawal of U.S. forces in the early 1970s.

World War I
Ross, Stewart
ISBN: 0836856686
World Almanac Library  2004 
 Pictorial Cover New book, 64 pages. This book describes how the major power struggles of Europe erupted into a global war that was marked by new forms of combat that included trench warfare, strategies of attrition, and the first use of airpower. The book shows how the war turned in favor of the Allies after years of fighting in which neither the Allies nor the Central Powers gained much ground despite massive casualties on both sides. The author also explains the late entry of the United States into this war and how U.S. forces finally helped end the conflict. The peace treaties that ended this "war to end all wars" are shown to lay the foundation for the even larger conflict of World War II that soon followed.  As New

The First World War: A New Illustrated History
Strachan, Hew
ISBN: 0743239601
Simon & Schuster New York, New York, U.S.A. 2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 350 pages. In this book, Strachan argues convincingly that the war has become a 'world war' long before the involvement of the United States and the Russian Revolution of 1917. Far from being a 'European civil war', the conflict involved the colonial territories of European powers, and touched areas as far-flung as the Balkans, Africa and the Ottoman Empire. And it was the existence of these territories that helped explain why the war did not seem futile at the time: for Britain and France, it quickly became a struggle for the defence of liberalism. Featuring a wealth of maps and photographs many of which have never previously been published, this is a modern history writing at its finest.  As New

Bayonet Battle: Bayonet Warfare in the Twentieth Century
Ripley, Tim
ISBN: 0283063238
Sidgwick & Jackson  1998 
 Hard Cover New book, 266 pages, some rubbing wear to jacket. In a century when land warfare had become increasingly mechanised and weapons have acquired greater accuracy and range, infantry have still used bayonet charges to win an attack or beat off assaults. This book is a history of the greatest of such actions, where raw courage and cold steel have often won the day over technology and numbers. Bayonet Battle starts with an account of the bayonet actions during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-5, when Japanese infantry carried positions at bayonet point in the face of determined Russian resistance. The book moves ten years forward to the outbreak of World War I and the horrors of trench warfare. Despite the defences on the Western Front there were still heroic bayonet actions, such as the Australian attacks at Pozieres in 1916 during the battle of the Somme. WW2 was a conflict of manoevre and technology, but Bayonette Battle shows that hand to hand fighting was still often the deciding factor in battles. Moving into the modern era, this book includes actions during the Korean War, Vietnam War and the British recapture of the Falklands in 1982, when 3 Para stormed Mount Longdon at bayonet points and the Scots Guards took Mount Tumbledown with cold steel. For each of these and other actions in Bayonet Battle, the strategic and tactical situation in covered in full to set the scene of the action. The fighting itself is, where possile, told through the words of those who took part or who witnessed it. In this way Bayonet Battle conveys the full horror, excitement and atmosphere of a type of close quarter fighting that has changed little since ancient times.  As New/Good

Chickenhawk
Mason, Robert
ISBN: 9780552160988
Corgi Books  1983 
 Soft Cover New book, 399 pages. As a child, Robert Mason dreamed of levitating. As a young man, he dreamed of flying helicopters - and the U.S. Army gave him his first chance. They sent him to Vietnam where, between August 1965 and July 1966, he flew more than 1,000 assault missions. In this book, Robert Mason gives us a devestating bird's eye-view of that war in all its horror, as he experiences the accelerating terror, the increasingly desperate struggle of man 'acting out the role of a hero long after he realises that the conduct of the war is insane'.  As New

Salecker, Gene

Stackpole Books  2008 
 Hard Cover New book, 439 pages. Although the history of armour in World War II has captured the attention of countless authors, no one has yet chronicled the U.S. Army's extensive use of tanks in the Pacific - until now. Relying on first hand accounts from the soldiers who fought there, Gene Eric Salecker recreates the battles of the Army's independent tank battalions in the bloody struggle against Japan from 1941 to 1945. As part of Gen. Douglas MacArthur's long offensive in the Southwest Pacific and in support of Adm. Chester Nimitz's island-hopping campaign, the Army's tankers gave better than they got from start to finish.   As New/Very Good

Phoenix Triumphant : The Rise and Rise of the Luftwaffe
Hooton, E. R.
ISBN: 186019964X
Brockhampton Press  2000 
 Hard Cover New book, 320 pages. From the ashes of a shattered nation in 1918, the German Air Force rose again. The climax of the campaign in the west in 1940 - when the Luftwaffe was to play a vital role - can now be seen at the zenith of the fortunes and strengths. But the victories won during 1939-40 were as nothing to those won over the previous twenty years, as Germany overcame the restrictions that had been imposed by the treaty of Versailles. This book, the product of much new research in military archives in Germany, France and Britain, tells the story of how Germany came to develop the Luftwaffe. Here are the secret years of German aviation up to 1935, when even the German government was misled as to the existence of training programmes, while barely any effort was made to meet the Armistice demands. The story of the Luftwaffe from creation to victorious justification in war is vividly told here for the first time in detail and in one volume. It is a fasinating insight into a unique period of military aviation, as tactics and technology raced each other, set against the background of rearmement and resurgent German militarism in the years before and during the initial campaigns of World War Two.  As New/Very Good

ISBN: 1840671580
Caxton Editions  2001 
 Pictorial Cover New book, 184 pages, 45 photos, 8 maps, slight rubbing wear to cover. Field Marshal the Viscount Montgomery of Alemein was undoubtedly the most famous military figure since the Duke of Wellington. He masterminded the first victory over the German Army at El Alamein and went on to play a key role in the campaigns that ended Hitler's domination over Western Europe. He was very much a 'soldier's general', with the ability to consistently inspire the men under his command. However, his vain self-confidence, that often bordered on arrogance, led Montgomery to treat many of his colleagues and superiors, particularly his American counterparts, with barely concealed contempt. The shortcomings of Montgomery's personalitiy have done much to tarnish his reputation during the Second World War, and since then historical opinion has been divided on just how good a military commander he actually was. This book will survey Montgomery's career during the Second World War and then offers an assessment of his military 'genius'.  Very Good

Gunpowder
Ponting, Clive
ISBN: 0701177527
Chatto & Windus  2005 
 Hard Cover New book, 256 pages. For many, gunpowder is associated with Guy Fawkes and the attempt to blow up parliament 400 years ago. Fewer people know that the formula for gunpowder was discovered over 1,000 years ago - in China - and by accident. Known as 'fire-drug', its origin was the alchemists search for immortality, 'the elixir of life', and it was initially a medicine, not an explosive. This fascinating book tells the story of the huge impact of gunpowder on every state and empire in the world. For 400 years the Chinese kept it to themselves, until a Mongol soldier leaked the secret to the Islamic world, where gunpowder played a crucial role in the rise of the great empires of the Ottomans and the Mughals. Even more important was the impact of gunpowder in Europe where, driven by the demands of almost constant warfare, new weapons created new states. Equally, gunpowder helped Europeans destroy Aztec and Inca empires and then go on to dominate the rest of the world. Packed with unexpected and interesting facts, and revealing its exciting, devestating and important story with global sweep and storytelling power.  As New/As New

 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, WAR090. By 1960, following Korea, tanks and their crews had proved themselves to be a fundamental part of the Marine Corps' combined arms team. When the Marines were ordered to Vietnam in 1965, they took their tanks with them. This book explores this decision, which created a political storm. The presence of the tanks became a lightning rod for accusations of an 'escalation' of the war. Nevertheless, the tanks not only proved their value in the anti-guerrilla campaigns, but also amid the bitter conventional fighting and extraordinary casualties at Hue City. The ability to undertake such radical change and to prevail demonstrated the versatility, courage and tenacity that are the hallmarks of the 'ordinary' Marine.

Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 1989 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA210. The story of Venice is, to some extent, separate from that of the rest of Europe. The same could be said of the city's military history and organisation. Early in the 9th century the Venetians defeated Pepin the Frank's attempts to overawe them, and they remained, at least in theory, subject to Byzantium. Gradually, however, Venice drifted into independence; and subsequently carved out its own empire at the expense of its former Byzantine masters. The Venetians were soon famous for their roving and warlike spirit, keen business acumen and pride. This book explores the remarkable history of the city and its army from 1200 up until 1670.

This concise study, concluding the author's series of five titles on the Prussian Army of 1792-1815, covers the staff; the reforms in tactical employment of all-arms brigades (which, contrary to received opinion, pre-dated the disasters of Jena and Auerstedt in 1806); the artillery and other technical troops; and regimental colours and standards. Among the illustrations are rare diagrams from the artillery drill manual of the day.

Ships of the American Revolutionary Navy
Lardas, Mark
ISBN: 9781846034459
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG161. Mark Lardas explores the origins of American warships, primarily light and medium frigates, built for the Continental Navy during the years 1776-1783. This was the first navy of the United States and much of the fleet was comprised of ships that had been modified from existing vessels, converted into warships to provide a crucial service during the American Revolutionary War. Despite having no real funding, this unique fleet had a surprising amount of success against the might of the Royal Navy, and this title discusses the strengths and weaknesses of each design, and the differences between European and American warships of the time. With a close look at how these ships performed in key battles, as well as the exploits of John Paul Jones - the founding father of the United States Navy - this is a complete, illustrated overview of the ships’ service and development until France’s entry into the war and the subsequent decline in importance of the Continental Navy.  As New

Yet ten of the twelve battleships were already over twenty years old, having served in World War I, and required extensive modifications to allow them to perform a vital service throughout the six long years of conflict. This title offers a comprehensive review of the seven battleships of the Nelson and King George V classes from their initial commissioning to their peacetime modifications and wartime service. Moreover, with specially commissioned artwork and a dramatic re-telling of key battles, such as the duel between the Bismark and HMS Rodney, this book will highlight what it was like on board for the sailors who risked their lives on the high seas.  As New

Australian Hawk Over the Western Front: A Biography of Major R.S.Dallas DSO, DSC, C de G avec Palme

ISBN: 1904943349
Grub Street London, United Kingdom 2006 
 Hard Cover New book, 221 pages. Within these pages, Adrian Hellwig shows that contrary to earlier research studies, Major Roderic Dallas is Australia's leading air ace of all time, with at least 48 victories to his name. This also makes him one of the highest scoring Commonwealth aces. Nevertheless, until this excellently researched volume, there as never been a full biography of this exceptional pilot, whose fighting career spanned from 1916 to 1918. Flying Nieuport Scouts, Triplanes and Camels with the RNAS and RAF, he was an ever-present threat over the Western Front and the scourge of the German Air Force. Hellwig's book has been taken procipally from primary sources (Dallas' own letters, logbooks and service record, in addition to squadron record books, combat reports and contemporary acounts), and his resulting conclusions will surprise many. Here is a fitting tribute to not just Australia's greatest war hero of the air, but to a man any country would be proud to call their own.  As New/As New

ISBN: 1860199577
Brockhampton Press  2000 
 Hard Cover New book, 224 pages. Napoleon said that the success of the coup de main depended absolutely upon luck rather than upon judgement.

Bryan Perrett now examines in accurate detail and exciting, atmospheric description, eleven examples of this battlefield manoeuvre which has often had telling effect on the campaign of which it has been part. From central europe in 1916 through the theatres of World War Two and Korea to the Vietnam conflict in 1965, each example portrays the many facets and dramas of land warfare.   As New/Very Good

Within weeks the sparks of revolution against autocratic monarchies and governments would start fires throughout Europe. Populations, often led by dissident liberals and students rose in Prague, Milan and even Vienna. In Germany itself trouble erupted in Baden, Saxony and Berlin. Austria seemed beset on all sides and ruthlessly set about defeating the city rioters along with revolutionary and nationalist armies from Hungary and Italy. By 1849 much of Europe was again in the hands of the autocratic monarchies but Schleswig-Holstein was still in revolt against the Danes who managed to hang on despite a strong German onslaught. The forces of many of these countries were documented by Knötel and depicted here. Of special interest are the colorful uniforms worn by the Hungarian revolutionaries.

Uniformology  2006 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** Germany came late to the business of Imperial acquisition. As a relatively new Empire itself, the then Chancellor, Bismarck, was reluctant to join the fray. However, his master, Wilhelm II was eager to plant the German flag on distant shores and soon his nation would join the 'Scramble for Africa'. Colonies sprang up in Togo, Cameroon, Southwest Africa, and East Africa and in due time troops were raised to protect them. Thus were formed the Schutztruppe, a relatively small force whose presence in each of these colonies would bolster the colonists and leave a lasting impression. A full account of this force and its uniforms is contained in this book and accompanied by contemporary illustrations by Moritz Ruhl, Georg Krickel and M. Pietsch. All these illustrators were well known in early 20th century Germany for their informative work on the uniforms of German and other national armies. (27 plates plus text)  As New

As a relatively new Empire itself, the then Chancellor, Bismarck, was reluctant to join the fray. However, his master, Wilhelm II was eager to plant the German flag on distant shores and soon his nation would join the 'Scramble for Africa'. Colonies sprang up in Togo, Cameroon, Southwest Africa, and East Africa and in due time troops were raised to protect them. Thus were formed the Schutztruppe, a relatively small force whose presence in each of these colonies would bolster the colonists and leave a lasting impression. A full account of this force and its uniforms is contained in this book and accompanied by contemporary illustrations by Moritz Ruhl, Georg Krickel and M. Pietsch. All these illustrators were well known in early 20th century Germany for their informative work on the uniforms of German and other national armies. (27 plates plus text)  As New

Among these, in an attempt to restore pride and confidence was a change in dress uniforms. This change reversed the draconian reforms of Alexander III in 1881 when simple peasant style uniforms were adopted and all cavalry became dragoons. Now the hussars, lancers and cuirassiers returned (the latter converted to dragoons) with distinctive and attractive uniforms. Not least of these affected the Imperial Guard where uniforms reached their apogee in terms of magnificence. Here, in schematic form is the work of V.

In many ways it mirrored the Guard of 1803-15 particularly in the matter of organization by including all branches of the army within its ranks. Ironically, Napoleon III’s Guard endured three years longer than that its predecessor but ceased to exist just as abruptly. After hard fighting and victory over the Austrians in the Italian unification war of 1859, it suffered a humiliating defeat and subsequent disbandment at the hands of Prussia at Sedan in 1870. The Guard and its uniforms are described in detail within these pages along with the illustrations of Maurice Toussaint. Toussaint was a popular illustrator of military subjects in France during the latter part of the 19th Century and his colorful and lively paintings capture perfectly the essence of the last 'Garde Imperiale'.

At the time there were only four understrength regiments for him to command and he strove mightily to build them into a substantial cavalry component of the Continental Army. Despite his efforts and a generally good performance during the war, they never became a truly effective force, mostly because they could never be brought up to proper strength.

As military involvement increased, more units, both metropolitan and native were raised to keep the peace among the tribes in the hostile desert environment where most of the fighting took place. Most famous of all these was the French Foreign Legion whose legends were born in the distant dusty forts of the Algerian desert. Not least, however were the other legendary formations created such as the Zouaves, Spahis and Chasseurs D’Afrique whose exploits are renowned the world over. We show the uniforms found in a rare French volume produced before the First World War illustrated by Rousselot and the detailed schematics and uniform items of Messrs. Lienhart and Humbert from their massive work on the French Army in 1904. A useful and informative text describing the uniforms and their wearers accompanies the illustrations.

 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** From the beginning of the eighteenth century to the Revolution, the French army represented one of the largest military forces in the world. It was involved in nearly every conflict from the War of Spanish Succession to the American War of Independence and its troops were garrisoned not only in France but India , Canada and the West Indies . For the entire period of this book, Louis XV reigned (1715-1774) and when he came of age in 1723, he took a great interest in his army and especially in matters of dress. Like every other 18th century army, the infantry constituted by far the largest component and the study of its uniforms during the period offers quite a challenge. There were numerous changes, in both substance and small details, especially from about 1725, and like every army of the time the regulations often not only overlapped, but colonels were not inclined to replace clothing until the old articles had worn out. Records of the uniforms were meticulously kept but it fell to two 19th century artists to present them in some order. These were Lucien Mouillard and Alfred de Marbot and later historians and artists such as Leinhert & Humbert were to rely heavily on their work. This volume documents the work of Marbot, including his schematics of which reproduction has been rare. The 18 full color plates of uniforms and 121 schematics, with a very informative text, give a very complete representation of French Infantry uniforms during the War of Austrian Succession and the Seven Years War.  As New

The Belgian Army in World War I
Pawley, R; Lierneux, P
ISBN: 9781846034480
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA452. While small in numbers, the Belgian Army played a vital role in World War 1 that is often overlooked. Germany’s invasion of neutral Belgium, which led Britain to declare war in August 1914, should have been swift and fierce yet the unexpected heroic defence, against great odds, of Belgian fortresses, frustrated the German Schlieffen Plan for a thrust to Paris and a lightning victory. The plucky Belgian resistance proved successful in buying time for French and British troops to mobilize and report to the front, where the Belgians would then go on to fight, stubbornly defending the northern end of the Allied trench line for the rest of the war. Discover the story of this determined Army, from their organization and commanders, to their uniforms and equipment. The only main combatant army of World War I not previously covered by Osprey, this volume will be an important addition to any enthusiast’s collection, accompanied by detailed artwork and archive photographs.  As New

Seafire vs A6M Zero
Nijboer, Donald
ISBN: 9781846034336
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, DUE16. 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.

Plans were therefore made to update the Parade uniforms of the army and the new Parade Uniform regulations were issued in 1915. Essentially, the old uniform details such as facings, pipings and lace remained the same as before the war, except that the basic color of the uniform was Field Grey for all branches. History was not kind to these plans. As the war deepened it became apparent that new dress uniforms would be a matter decided at the end of the war.

His work exhibits exquisite detail down to the smallest piece of equipment and the facial expression, the poses add feeling and emotion lacking in the typical military print. The majority of the illustrations in this book are from LA VIELLE GARDE IMPERILE published in 1929. It contains 22 plates of infantry, cavalry and officers from the French army during the Napoleonic Wars, each plate is accompanied by explanatory text.  As New

Freikorps of the Seven Years War: Hannover and Prussia
Bassett-Powell, Bruce
Uniformology  2008 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** The Seven Years War (1756-1763) was probably the first true World War with the conflict being waged not only in Europe, but in the Indian sub-continent, the West Indies and North America. In Europe, the armies of Austria, France, Prussia, Russia and Great Britain, not to mention a score of German kingdoms, principalities and dukedoms battled for the balance of power on the continent. For Prussia and Frederick the Great, the war was a continuation of the War of Austrian Succession (1740-1748) which contested the rights of Maria Theresa to the Hapsburg throne. Although the Prussian army was mostly made up of regulars, a large number of volunteers, soldiers of fortune and freebooters were assembled into units by, usually wealthy, soldiers of fortune who offered their services to the Prussian King. These units were known as Freikorps and proved to be of limited value militarily. However, they served as line of communications troops, scouts and, more often than not, harassing forces who put the fear of God into stragglers and the civilian population. Some of these units even changed sides and both Austria and France would employ their own Free corps or Legions. This volume examines these corps, detailing their history (where known) and describing their uniforms. Finely restored illustrations by Philip Cranz of Knotel and Marbot prints provide the color plates along with two by the author.  As New

The French Army Of Napoleon Volume I 1790-1807
Cranz, Philip
Uniformology  2009 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** No era in the history of military dress has produced more illustrative material than that from 1792 to 1815. Any student of this period will be familiar with the works of most of the contemporary and nineteenth century artists who chronicled the myriad of uniforms and their variations and it seems that a new publication on the subject appears several times a month. As the main protagonist of those wars that bore their leader’s name for fourteen of them, France still generates more interest in its uniforms than any other country. Among the first of the post-Napoleonic artists was Alfred de Marbot (1812-1865) who produced a vast body of work on the armies of France. His collection of resources was apparently enormous and he was able to illustrate not only the standard uniforms of the infantry and cavalry, but also those of short lived and unusual units such as Foot Hussars!! This volume deals with uniforms worn from just before the Imperial period to 1807. Included are the first uniforms of the National Guard and infantry uniforms worn until the notorious white uniforms adopted by very few regiments in 1806. 48 Pages - 22 Illustrations and 23 pages of text.  As New

The British Army of 1885: With Illustrations from Walter Richards "Her Majesty’s Army"
Bassett-Powell, Bruce
Uniformology Weatherford, Texas 2007 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** The last twenty years of Queen Victoria’s reign saw the British Empire reach the height of its power. The Royal Navy kept the sea-lanes open and safe for British and world commerce to pursue peaceful trade across the oceans. The far flung colonies were protected by the British Army who were often caught in sharp conflicts with native populations who had yet to realize the benefits of British Rule. In 1885 the British Army had finally, through a series of reforms beginning in 1868, shaken off the ghosts of the Crimean War that had laid bare the parlous conditions within its organization. However, it was an army designed for colonial brush fires, not European warfare. Over two centuries the army had been sustained by its regimental system and in 1885 it was as entrenched as ever. Walter Richards produced a three-volume work describing this army and that of its colonies. The illustrations in these volumes show the home service and dress uniforms of the home army at the time and a complete and a detailed description of the uniforms of all the regiments and corps appears in the accompanying text.  As New

La Maison Du Roi De France: Houshold Troops of the King of France 1445-1789
Marbot, Lienhart, Humbert
Uniformology  2006 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** The Royal Court of the Kings of France was a hotbed of Byzantine intrigue. To protect themselves from enemies both from within and without, the military forces of the Royal Household (Maison du Roi) became the largest and most elaborate in Europe. Special units were created to guard inner doors or outer doors and others designated by various degrees of distance to guard the King’s person. Naturally, uniforms were created and the ranks, populated exclusively from the nobility, bore ancient nomenclature. The Maison du Roi lasted nearly 200 years but would disappear by 1791 as revolution engulfed France. They reappeared again (not included in this volume) during the restoration until the monarchy was finally abolished. The history of the Maison du Roi along with their uniform details are recorded in this book. The illustrations with them are taken from the collection of the great French 19th century military artist Alexandre de Marbot and further schematic details are provided by the plates of Lienhart & Humbert.

French General Officers, Staff Officers & Aides De Camp 1734-1890

Uniformology  2006 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** Ever since armies began to wear uniforms, senior officers have set out to sartorially distinguish themselves from men they commanded. Inevitably this led to excess and puffery but, on the whole most generals and their staffs dressed simply and comfortably in the field. France was much the same as other countries in the profuse use of gold lace (usually of a floral design such as laurels or oak leaves) and by the Napoleonic Wars uniforms reached their zenith. However, by the end of the nineteenth century, despite a preponderance of gold lace, General Officers were wearing simpler attire. Lienhart and Humbert included an important study of the uniforms of General and staff officers in their 1904 work and it is reproduced here with all the minutia and detail provided. As with all Uniformology books, an informative text accompanies the plates. This book has 34 plates with notes on the plates and uniforms.  As New
