    By 1400 the long running conflict between the Order of Teutonic Knights and Poland and Lithuania was coming to a head, partly as a result of the Order's meddling in the internal politics of its neighbours.

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    Poland was the first of the Allied nations to succumb to German aggression in the Second World War, but by the most tortuous of routes her army managed to remain in the field through all five years of bloody fighting.

  • American Civil War Marines 1861-65by Ron Field; Richard Hook

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 14.95

    The part played in the Civil War by the small Marine Corps of the United and Confederate States is overshadowed by the confrontations of the great armies.

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2012; US$ 12.99

    In 1543 three Portuguese merchants entered a turbulent Japan, bringing with them the first firearms the Japanese had ever seen: simple matchlock muskets called arquebuses. They proved a decisive addition to the Japanese armoury, as for centuries the samurai had fought only with bow, sword and spear. In 1575, one of the greatest original thinkers in... more...

  • Pirate of the Far Eastby Stephen Turnbull; Richard Hook

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2012; US$ 13.99

    Feared throughout the Far East, Japanese pirates were likened to 'black demons' and 'flood dragons'. For centuries relations between Japan, Korea and China were carried out through a bizarre trinity of war, trade and piracy. The piracy, which combined the other elements in a violent blend of free enterprise, is the subject of this original and exciting... more...
