Inspired by the icons paraded by their priests before battle, the Russian... more...

    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 13.95

    At the time of the American Civil War (1861-1865), with two million men under arms, a US Army that in pre-war days had depended upon a minute number of technical troops now required virtually an army of specialists alone. Special sharpshooters were recruited for skirmishing duty; men whose wounds would have led to their discharge in the past now found... more...

  • Austrian Army of the Napoleonic Wars (1)by Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    The most implacable of Napoleon's continental enemies, at the outbreak of war Austria maintained a vast army, but one rooted firmly in the 18th century.

Despite this the regulars, who were drawn from many territories under Austrian sway,... more...

  • Austrian Army of the Napoleonic Wars (2)by Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    The mounted troops of the Hapsburg Empire comprised one of the most powerful forces of the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815).

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 109.95

    The U.S. government mandates that all Department of Defense logistic-wide initiatives adopt commercially proven practices and strategies to undergo maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) transformations.  Reasons for the drastic order include aging weapons systems, an aging workforce, limited financial resources, and new technologies, just to name... more...

  • Defence Procurement and Industry Policyby Stefan Markowski; Peter Hall; Robert Wylie

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 54.95

  • United States Army Logistics: From the American Revolution to 9/11by Steve Waddell

    ABC-CLIO 2009; US$ 55.00

    You can train men to fight. You can plan for the invasion. But you can't have success on the battlefield if you cannot move the men and material into position. Success is not possible without logistical support and capabilities. The U.S. Army's logistics system began with practically nothing and through numerous conflicts and periods of peace has... more...

  • Powerlift--Getting to Desert Storm: Strategic Transportation and Strategy in the New World Orderby Doug Menarchik

    ABC-CLIO 1993; US$ 84.00

    Logistics, the movement of forces to battlefields, their supply, and on-going support, is critical to military success. Although this principle is theoretically accepted, the importance of being well-prepared to rapidly transport troops and supplies to distant crisis points has not been complemented, as Menarchik shows, by adequate lift capabilities.... more...
