  • The Irish Defence Forces since 1922by Donal Maccarron; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Born in the Civil War of 1922–23, the army of the Republic of Ireland occupied a sensitive place in the national culture for many years. In World War II (1939-1945), it faced the challenge of maintaining Ireland’s integrity as neutral. Post-war, it found a new role in 1960, providing troops for the United Nations intervention in the war-torn... more...

  • Nelson's Navyby Philip Haythornthwaite; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 14.95

    Despite the many celebrated victories of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815), the role of the Royal Navy should never be overlooked. The 'wooden walls' formed the country's first and most important line of defence, and ranged throughout the world to protect Britain's trade-routes and in support of the land forces and overseas possessions.... more...

  • The Lines of Torres Vedras 1809-11by Ian Fletcher; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Following the battle of Bussaco on 27 September 1810 Wellington's heavily outnumbered troops began to withdraw towards Lisbon. By the evening of 9 October the British and Portuguese began to withdraw behind a line of defensive works that had been built to the north of Lisbon. These were not the rudimentary field works that the French anticipated, but... more...

  • Salamanca 1812by Ian Fletcher; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    Osprey's study of Salamanca (1812), the most decisive battle of the entire Peninsular War (1808-1814). Wellington smashed Marmont's French Army and his pursuit of its shattered remnants led to the famous cavalry charge of the King's German Legion at Garcia Hernandez. There would be two more years of sieges and hard fighting before the Iron Duke crossed... more...

  • Wellington's Foot Guardsby Ian Fletcher; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 14.95

    The Guards fought in every major British campaign on the continent during the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815). They carved their place in history under commanders such as Sir John Moore and Wellington from Corunna and Talavera during the Peninsular War (1807-1814) to their legendary defence of the Chateau of Hougoumont throughout the battle of Waterloo.... more...

  • Vittoria 1813by Ian Fletcher; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    Osprey's Campaign title for the Battle of Vittoria during the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815). Despite Wellington's success against Marmont's army at Salamanca in July, the year of 1812 ended in bitter disappointment for the British. However, a year later Wellington's series of brilliant manoeuvres threw the French onto the defensive on all fronts, culminating... more...

  • Badajoz 1812by Ian Fletcher; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    The storming of Badajoz was an epic action which involved Wellington?s infantry in some of the most savage hand-to-hand fighting of the whole Peninsular War (1812). At appalling cost in a nightmare assault during the night of the 6 April 1812, Wellington?s soldiers hacked their way over the bodies of their dead and wounded and through the huge medieval... more...

  • The Portuguese Army of the Napoleonic Wars (2)by Rene Chartrand; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 13.95

    Osprey are confident in boasting that this remarkable three-part study will transform the research material available to the English-speaking student of the Peninsular War (1808-1814). Most know that Wellington's Portuguese troops were praised as the 'fighting cocks' of his army; fewer appreciate that they represented between half and one-third of... more...

  • Irish Volunteer Soldier 1913-23by Gerry White; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 14.95

    The political situation in Ireland at the beginning of the 20th century was characterised by crisis and change. Armed rebellion against the British Crown, the prosecution of the Anglo-Irish War, the emergence of the Irish Free State, and the eruption of the Civil War over the treaty with Great Britain ensured that the birth of the modern Irish nation... more...

  • Confederate Artilleryman 1861-65by Philip Katcher; Bill Younghusband

    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 14.95

    In the heady days of the rush to arms in 1861, comparatively few Southern men volunteered for service in the artillery: most preferred the easily accessible glory of the infantry or cavalry. Yet those that did, quickly earned the respect of their fellow soldiers, and a reputation for being able to "pull through deeper mud, ford deeper springs, shoot... more...
