The Crisis of Rome: The Jugurthine and Northern Wars and the Rise of Marius
Sampson, Gareth
ISBN: 1844159728
Pen & Sword  2010 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Hard Cover New book, 259 pages. In the later 2nd century BC, after a period of rapid expansion and conquest, the Roman Republic found itself in crisis. In North Africa her armies were already bogged down in a long and difficult guerrilla war in a harsh environment when an invasion by a coalition of Germanic tribes, the Cimbri, Teutones and Ambrones, threatened Italy and Rome itself, inflicting a series of heavy reverses on Roman forces, culminating in the catastrophic defeat at the Battle of Arausio. Gaius Marius was the man of the hour. He brought the first war to a victorious end, crushing the Numidian King Jugurtha in battle and leading him back to Rome in chains. Before his ship even returned to Italy, the senate elected Marius to lead the war against the northern invaders. Reorgaising and reinvigorating the demoralised Roman legions, he led them to two remarkable victories in the space of months, crushing the Teutones and Ambrones at Aquae Sextiae and the Cimbri at Vercellae. The Roman Army emerged from this period of crisis a much leaner and more professional force and the author examines the extent to which the 'Marian Reforms' were responsible for this and the extent to which they can be attributed to Marius himself.   As New

The Army of Alexander the Great
English, Stephen
ISBN: 184415839X
Pen & Sword  2009 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Hard Cover New book, 164 pages. Alexander the Great is often regarded as the greatest military genius of all time (Julius Caesar wept at the feet of his statue in envy of his achievements). Most of his thirteen year reign as king of Macedon was spend in hard campaigning, during which he was never defeated in open battle and never besieged a city he did not take. Yet, while biographies of Alexander abound, there are relatively few full length books dedicated to the Macedonian army which made his dazzling conquests possible. Stephen English investigates every element of the Macedonian forces, analysing the recruitment, equipment, organisation, command and tactics of each of the fighting arms (including the famous pike phalanxes, elite hypaspists, and incomparable Companion Cavalry). Alexander's naval forces are also covered. The author draws on recent archaeological evidence and scholoarship to present a detailed portrait of the army which conquered half the known world and repeatedly proved itself the most formidable war machine of the age.  As New

Tilly Colours
Shackleton, Michael
Tilly Register Production  2010 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 80 pages. The intention of Tilly Colours is to highlight the many and varied colour schemes applicable to Tillys during the war years. Indeed, the general colours here are equally applicable to other British military vehicles of the period. The problem of identifying British wartime colours has always been a tricky one. Throughout the war, there were many interpretations of not only the official camouflage schemes, but also of the colours themselves. Michael Shackleton has compiled this profile using mainly black and white photographs of wartime Tillys with the invaluable help of Mike Starmer who has long been recognised for his work in identifying these colours and patterns. Virtually every photograph in the book is a black and white picture of a Tilly in military service during the war. The book contains a colour explanation so that the photographs can be usefully interpreted. In most cases, an illustration of, and explanation of, the vehicle’s unit markings is provided. It opens up a wealth of suggestions for accurate liveries that would be appropriate for use on either a restored vehicle or a scale miniature. The book is designed to be equally useful to both modellers and vehicle restorers/owners proving that there is more than just one plain green colour scheme available to them and that British wartime camouflage is equally as interesting as those used by the opposing Axis forces. Illustrated with eighty-eight wartime photographs and numerous drawings and unit badges.  As New

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.

The Army of Spain in the New World, the American Revolution, and Napoleonic Wars
Lull & Bueno
Uniformology  2004 
 CD ** 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 is a CD from Uniformology in the U.S, who have produced a large range of CD's each containing dozens of high quality scans of rare and costly original miltary uniform prints from the 18th, 19th, and early 20th century. Until Mexico won its independence from Spain and the French under Napoleon conquered Spain and Napoleon engineered the Louisiana Purchase, Spain maintained military garrisons and forces throughout the New World. Despite the relatively uncivilized continents of North and South America military fashion and regulation were still maintained and no other country sported any more colorful and interesting uniforms than the Kingdom of Spain. Her military forces played an important part in supporting the American Revolution. Spain gave both military and financial support to the colonies and was involved in armed conflicts with the British along the Gulf Coast. Galvez, the military governor or Lousiana played an active role in the expulsion of the British and their interests along the Mississippi. 135 plates.  As New
