Wellington’s Heavy Cavalry
Fosten, Bryan
ISBN: 0850454743
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 1982 
 Soft Cover New book, 40 pages, MAA130. Wellington considered the British cavalry to be technically inferior to the French, although paradoxically he also said that one British squadron would be a match for two of the enemy. His main concern was that although the British cavalry lacked neither courage nor dash, they lacked discipline, in that they invariably failed to rally and re-form once they had charged home. At Waterloo, although the cavalry generally performed superbly well, the endemic faults which Wellington had already identified were repeated more than once, resulting in the decimation of several fine regiments. Bryan Fosten explores the history, organisation and uniforms of Wellington's Heavy Cavalry.  As New

From the moment that the M4 Sherman had been matched against German Panther and Tiger tanks, the American tank crews had known that their vehicles were outclassed by the opposition. What was needed was a more powerful tank, more heavily armed and armored, that could take-on the powerful German panzers on a more equal footing. Although it took time to develop by the latter months of the war numbers of M26 Pershing tanks were reaching the frontline US armored units. Well armored and with a powerful 90mm gun the Pershing was a match for any tank in the German order of battle. Contents: Introduction; Developmental of the M26 Pershing tank; Combat record of the M26 in WWII; Development of the M46; Combat record of the M26 and M46 in Korea; Foreign export of the M26 and M46; The Plates; Index.  As New

Medieval Siege Weapons (2): Byzantium, the Islamic World & India
Nicolle, David
ISBN: 1841764590
Osprey Publishing Ltd Oxford, United Kingdom 2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG069, 8 pages of colour illustrations, many B&W illustrations. When it came to non-gunpowder machine development, the medieval period was one of the most inventive in military history.

Three civilisations were primarily responsible for this evolution: the Late-Roman or Byzantine Empire, the Islamic World, and latterly the Mongol ‘World Empire’. This book examines the resulting stone-throwing machines from torsion ‘energy storage’ systems, to manpowered and counterbalance sling devices, rockets and others. Contents: Stone-throwing machines, Great crossbows, Dropping, burning and exploding, Bibliography, Colour plate commentary.  As New

The Crisis of Rome: The Jugurthine and Northern Wars and the Rise of Marius
Sampson, Gareth
ISBN: 1844159728
Pen & Sword  2010 
 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/As New

The Army of Alexander the Great
English, Stephen
ISBN: 184415839X
Pen & Sword  2009 
 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/As New

Tilly Colours
Shackleton, Michael
Tilly Register Production  2010 
 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 Army of Spain in the American Revolution Vol. II: The Siege of Pensacola
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. ** 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

The Austro-Prussian War of 1866: Vol. II Saxony
Embree, Michael G.
Uniformology  2010 
 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. ** As the Austrian army collapsed under the onslaught of Prussia’s Elbe Army, the Saxon Army on its left, under Prince Albert did its best to redeem the situation. Unfortunately the pressure was too much and they were forced to retire, which they did in an orderly manner. It was also in an orderly manner that Albert marched his troops, who had fought with honor, across the Elbe and away from the battlefield and into the history books. Königgratz would be the last battle that Saxony fought as a fully independent Kingdom. This book traces the story of Saxony’s participation in Second Schleswig War of 1864 to the end of the Seven Weeks War in 1866. The author describes its organization, tactics and uniforms of the period. It is illustrated with prints by Bruce Bassett-Powell, Richard Knötel from the Uniformenkunde and his son Herbert from his work with Martin Lezius. Plenty of uniform details and schematics also accompany the text.  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. ** 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

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

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

 Soft Cover New book, 386 pages. In June 1950, the North Koreans invaded South Korea. With the horrors of the Second World War still fresh in everyone's minds, US President Truman was reluctant to intervene, but within two weeks American troops were in action as part of a UN task force. They were soon joined by military personnel from Britain, Canada, Australia, and a dozen other nations facing 1.3 million Chinese soldiers who poured across the Manchurian border in support of North Korea. This began the three-year struggle that saw the world teeter on the brink of a Third World War.   As New

The Coldest Winter: America and the Korean War
Halberstam, David
ISBN: 9780230736191
MacMillan  2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 719 pages. Up until now, Korea has been the black hole of modern American history. This book changes that. Halbertam gives us a masterful narrative of the political decisions and miscalculations on both sides. He charts the disastrous path that led to the massive entry of Chinese forces near the Yalu, and that caught Douglas MacArthur and his soldiers by surprise. He provides astonishingly vivid and nuanced portraits of all the major figures - Eisenhower, Truman, Acheson, Kim and Mao, and Generals MacArthur, Almond, and Ridgeway. At the same time, Halberstam provides us with his trademark highly evocative narrative journalism, chronicling the crucial battles with reportage of the highest order. At the heart of the book are the individual stories of the soldiers on the front lines who were left to deal with the consequences of the dangerous misjudgements and competing agendas of powerful men. We meet them, follow them, and see some of the most dreadful battles in history through their eyes.  As New

Attila the Hun: Barbarian Terror and the Fall of the Roman Empire
Kelly, Christopher
ISBN: 9781844139156
Vintage  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 290 pages. Attila the Hun - godless barbarian and near mythical warrior king - has become a byword for mindless ferocity. His brutal attacks smashed through the frontiers of the Roman empire in a savage wave of death and destruction. His reign of terror shattered an imperial world that had been securely unified by the conquests of Julius Caesar five centuries before. This book goes in search of the real Attila the Hun. For the first time it reveals the history of an astute politician and first-rate military commander who brilliantly exploited the strengths and weaknesses of the Roman empire. We ride with Attila and the Huns from the windswept steppes of Kazakhstan to the opulent city of Constantinople, the the Great Hungarian Plain to the fertile fields of Champagne in France. Challenging our own ideas about barbarians and Romans, imperialism and civilisation, terrorists and superpowers, this is the absorbing story of an extraordinary and complex individual who helped to bring down an empire and forced the map of Europe to redraw forever.  As New

For seven years, the Romans marched and battled across what is now Scotland. Finally, in AD 83, they fought the final battle at Mons Graupius where 10,000 Caledonians were slaughtered from only 360 Roman dead. It proved the high-water mark of Roman power in Britain. Following unrest elsewhere in the empire, the north of Scotland was abandoned and Rome’s forces began their long retreat. Never again would Roman arms stand on the edge of the known world.

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.

 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

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

The Mongol Invasions of Japan 1274 and 1281
Turnbull, Stephen
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

ISBN: 9781846034930
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. Discover the history of these various actions and the different services involved, recreated in color artwork and illustrated with rare, previously unpublished photographs.  As New

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

 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

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.

 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’. Outclassed by increasingly powerful German anti-tank weapons, it still remained a power in the South-East Pacific, and was kept in service until the end of the war by Australian forces. 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

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

Before the end of the 19th Century, American troops would have fought in the Philippines and Cuba and less than 20 years away from their participation in World War I. The uniforms, while uniquely suited to the plains in campaign dress, were more like the standard European armies of the time. The spiked helmet, inspired by the German Pickelhaube was introduced for Cavalry in 1872 for cavalry and in 1881 for infantry and by 1888 all the various branches were distinguished by different collar cuffs and trouser stripes.

Before the end of the 19th Century, American troops would have fought in the Philippines and Cuba and less than 20 years away from their participation in World War I. The uniforms, while uniquely suited to the plains in campaign dress, were more like the standard European armies of the time. The spiked helmet, inspired by the German Pickelhaube was introduced for Cavalry in 1872 for cavalry and in 1881 for infantry and by 1888 all the various branches were distinguished by different collar cuffs and trouser stripes. Ruhl not only shows all these uniforms but includes several pages of rank, branch and service badges along with weapons and headdresses.  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. ** The Russian army inherited by Alexander III after his father’s assassination 1881 was in dire need of reorganization. Although he was not much interested in military affairs (There were no Russian troops involved in conflicts during his reign) he was a reactionary monarch and did as much as he could to undo the liberal reforms of his father. As far as the army was concerned, he decided they should be dressed in a fashion that suited his Pan-Slavic ambitions and should be as far removed from the European standard as possible. He did away with all the fine uniforms (except in the Guard cavalry) and replaced them with a ‘national peasant’ look. Ruhl shows these to good effect with the addition of a selection of plates with schematics at the end.  As New

The Imperial Chinese Army 1910
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. ** 1910 was the last year of peace before the Chinese Civil war began in earnest. 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 Italian Army 1896
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. ** In 1863, the armies of all the Italian states, unified in 1861, were combined into a national army. 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. Also included in the booklet is a brief account of the era along with organizational charts and regimental lists.  As New

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
