  • Armies of the Italian Wars of Unification 1848–70 (1)by Gabriele Esposito; Giuseppe Rava

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 9.99

    In the 1840s, post-Napoleonic Italy was 'a geographical expression' – not a country, but a patchwork of states, divided between the Austrian-occupied north, and a Spanish-descended Bourbon monarchy, who ruled the south from Naples. Two decades later, it was a nation united under a single king and government, thanks largely to the efforts of the Kings... more...

  • Bolt Action: Campaign: New Guineaby Warlord Games

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 18.99

    In 1942, Japanese forces invaded the island of New Guinea and started a bitter, three-year campaign against allied Australian and American forces. Fought in dense jungles and across rugged mountaintops, the grueling fight pushed men to their very limits and forced commanders to adopt new strategies and tactics for the harsh island terrain. Filled with... more...

  • British Battle Tanksby David Fletcher

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 13.99

    Plagued by unreliable vehicles and poorly thought-out doctrine, the early years of World War II were years of struggle for Britain's tank corps. Relying on tanks built in the late 1930s, and those designed and built with limited resources in the opening years of the war, they battled valiantly against an opponent well versed in the arts of armoured... more...

  • Railway Guns of World War Iby Marc Romanych; Greg Heuer; Steve Noon

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 10.99

    World War I was the Golden Age of the railway gun. Even though at the start of the conflict none of the armies possessed any railway artillery pieces and the very idea was comparatively new, more railway guns were used during this war than in any other conflict. Designed to break the stalemate of trench warfare, the first railway guns were simple,... more...

  • Sharpshooting Rifles of the American Civil Warby Martin Pegler; Johnny Shumate; Alan Gilliland

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 11.99

    At the outset of the American Civil War, the Union Army's sharpshooters were initially equipped with the M1855 Colt revolving rifle, but it was prone to malfunction. Instead, the North's sharpshooters preferred the Sharps rifle, an innovative breech-loading weapon capable of firing up to ten shots per minute – more than three times the rate of fire... more...

  • Viking Warrior vs Anglo-Saxon Warriorby Gareth Williams; Peter Dennis

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 11.99

    In the two centuries before the Norman invasion of England, Anglo-Saxon and Viking forces clashed repeatedly in bloody battles across the country. Repeated Viking victories in the 9th century led to their settlement in the north of the country, but the tide of war ebbed and flowed until the final Anglo-Saxon victory before the Norman Conquest. Using... more...

  • Savannah 1779by Scott Martin; Bernard F. Harris Jr.; Graham Turner

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 13.99

    In 1778 Great Britain launched a second invasion of the southern colonies as part of the "southern strategy” for victory in the American Revolutionary War. A force of 3,000 British soldiers, Hessians and Loyalists was dispatched from New York City to capture Savannah, capital of the State of Georgia. The city fell in December 1778, and became a base... more...

  • The Nanking Atrocity, 1937-1938by Bob Tadashi Wakabayashi

    Berghahn Books 2017; US$ 39.95

    First published in 2007, The Nanking Atrocity remains an essential resource for understanding the massacre committed by Japanese soldiers in Nanking, China during the winter of 1937-38. Through a series of deeply considered and empirically rigorous essays, it provides a far more complex and nuanced perspective than that found in works like Iris... more...

  • Big Gunsby Angus Konstam

    The Casemate Short History Series presents readable and entertaining introductions to military history topics. Over seven centuries the artillery piece has evolved from a status symbol to one of the most deadly weapons wielded by man.

    The Casemate Short History Series presents readable and entertaining introductions to military history topics.
