  • The Tobacco-Plantation South in the Early American Atlantic Worldby Steven Sarson

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 95.00

    "Republican" writing and its historians portray the early republic in broadly egalitarian, communalistic, pre-market terms. Yet this book shows that census, tax, probate, land, court, and planters' records reveal vigorous markets and extensive inequality and individualism in Prince George's County, Maryland, and the wider tobacco south. Landownership,... more...

    Osprey Publishing 2011; US$ 13.95

    The Iosef Stalin tanks were the ultimate heavy tanks developed by the Soviet Union and were popularly called 'Victory tanks' due to their close association with the defeat of Germany in 1945. Yet in spite of their reputation, the Stalin tanks emerged from a troubled design, had a brief moment of glory in 1944 and 1945, and disappeared in ignominy after... more...

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    The US Army had a unique tactical doctrine during World War II, placing the emphasis for tank fighting on its Tank Destroyer Command whose main early-war vehicle was the M10 3-inch Gun Motor Carriage, based on the reliable M4A2 Sherman tank chassis.

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Development of the Leopard 1 can be traced back to November 1956, when the operational requirement for a new battle tank was formulated by the Federal German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr). Originally a Franco-German project, the tank under design was named the 'Standard-Panzer'. The French later dropped out, however, and on 1 October 1963 the 'Standard'... more...

  • Armored Units of the Russian Civil Warby David Bullock; Peter Sarson

    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 13.95

    By 1920 the Red Army fielded an overwhelming array of armored cars and armored trains, while tank detachments had begun forming in earnest. These armored units played an important part in consolidating the newly won Bolshevik empire in the early 1920s; as a consequence of the fact that railways were the strategic arteries that essentially controlled... more...

    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 13.95

    Named after Klimenti Voroshilov, the People?s Commissar for Defence, the KVs proved a nasty surprise for German tank crews during the early days of Operation Barbarossa. Although slow, they were extremely heavily armoured. This volume examines the transition from multi-turreted tanks to heavy single-turret vehicles, consisting of the KV-1 and 2, and... more...

  • M3 Infantry Half-Track 1940-73by Steven Zaloga; Peter Sarson

    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 13.95

    As armoured warfare tactics matured, mechanised infantry became a key ingredient in what is now called 'combined arms' doctrine. For the US Army of World War 2, the most important technical aspect of infantry mechanisation was the development of the M3 half-track personnel carrier. Steven Zaloga guides the reader through the early 1930s development... more...
