Wellington’s Heavy Cavalry
Fosten, Bryan
ISBN: 0850454743
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 1982 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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

8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, WAR072. Between AD 161 and 244 the Roman legions were involved in wars and battles on a scale not seen since the late Republic.

This volume explores the experience of the imperial legionary, concentrating on Legio II Parthica. Raised by the emperor Septimus Severus in AD 193/4, it was based at Albanum near Rome and as the emperor's personal legion, became one of the most important units in the empire.

M26/M46 Pershing Tank 1943-53
Zaloga, Stephen J.
ISBN: 1841762024
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2001 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG035. 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 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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. During this era, the pre-existing military-technological traditions from the ancient worlds were brought together. 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
