  • Tales from the Indianapolis Colts Sidelineby Mike Chappell; Phil Richards

    Sports Publishing 2012; US$ 19.99

    With roots that go back to 1913, the Indianapolis Colts are one of the most storied franchises in the NFL. But the real legacy of achievement began in 1984 when the Colts arrived in Indianapolis after a midnight escape from Baltimore. Almost thirty years later, the Colts have forged a new identity as one of the most dynamic, power-driven teams in... more...

  • The French Indochina War 1946-54by Martin Windrow; Mike Chappell

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    The states of Indochina had been French colonies or protectorates since the 19th century. However, in March 1945 the Japanese interned all French troops and officials, and turned over all civil government to local authorities. The power vacuum caused by the Japanese surrender allowed the Viet Minh, a strong revolutionary organisation, to be established... more...

  • The Algerian War 1954-62by Martin Windrow; Mike Chappell

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    It is hard to convey the public impact of France's war to maintain her colonial grip on Algeria; yet in the late 1950s this ugly conflict dominated Europe's media to almost the same extent as would Vietnam ten years later. It brought France to the very verge of military coup d'etat; it destroyed thousands of careers; bitterly divided the French military... more...

  • British Territorial Units 1914-18by Ray Westlake; Mike Chappell

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    In his Army Reforms of 1906/07 the Secretary of State for War, Richard Burdon Haldane, provided for an expeditionary force - the Regular Army supplemented by the old Militia - and a new organisation intended for home defence, the Territorial Force. This new 'Citizen's Army' was formed by the transfer of the Honourable Artillery Company, Imperial Yeomanry... more...

  • The British Army 1939-45 (3)by Martin Brayley; Mike Chappell

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    The lightning Japanese offensives in the Far East inflicted a series of costly defeats on the ill-prepared and badly supported British Commonwealth forces in Malaya and Burma. The 'forgotten' 14th Army on the India-Burma border slowly built up its strength and its tactical expertise; and Wingate's 'Chindits' proved that units supplied from the air... more...

  • The British Army 1939-45 (1)by Martin Brayley; Mike Chappell

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    The Second World War was Britain's last conflict as a world power. For a year it saw Britain standing alone against the fascist dictatorships, and winning the war demanded the sacrifice of the entire national wealth. This first book of three describes the uniforms developed for European service. It traces the appearance of the 'Tommy' from pre-war... more...

  • French Foreign Legionby Martin Windrow; Mike Chappell

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

Martin Windrow's superb text examines the history of this famous force from the end of the Second World War onward. This first class addition to the Men-at-Arms series not only contains the usual wealth of accompanying... more...

  • The Australian Army in World War Iby Robert Fleming; Mike Chappell

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2012; US$ 12.99

    The importance of the Australian contribution to the Allied war effort during World War I should never be underestimated. Some 400,000 Australians volunteered for active duty, an astonishing 13 per cent of the entire (white) male population, a number so great that the Australian government was never forced to rely on conscription. Casualties were an... more...

As China entered a chaotic period in her history, known as the years of the "Warlords??, American... more...
