More treats for you with these items. Most due into the shoppe by early to mid November.


Anglo Danes

Huscarles: Late Saxons/Anglo Danes – Fyrd: 28mm Figures Contains 60 superbly detailed miniatures. Command frame has a monk and some armored warriors that can be used as commanders, standardbearers, and also when equipped with double-handed Dane axes as Anglo-Danish Huscarls. The armored figures representing more well-off-and-equipped select Fyrd or Theigns. The Unarmored represent the standard not-so-well-off Fyrd, but still equipped with a stout shield and assortment of helmets and spears, swords and Saxes. Hand axes have not been included in this set, not because the Saxons did not use hand axes, but because the Viking set has a plethora of spare hand axes. You can use a lot of these with the new Saxon set. $55.00 USD

MiG Alley: The U.S. Air Force in Korea 1950-53 Claims of the 10:1 victory-loss ratio achieved by the U.S. Air Force fighter pilots flying the North American F-86 Sabre against their communist adversaries, amongst other such fabrications, went unchallenged until the end of the Cold War, when Soviet records of the conflict were finally opened. The aerial battles of the Korean War were, at least in the early years, evenly matched affairs, fought to an approximately 1:1 victory-loss ratio. Though the Soviet victories declined over the following years, this had more to do with home politics than American tactics. $30.00 USD

Soviet Cavalry Operations During the Second World War: Genesis of the Operational Maneuver Group While the development of tanks had largely led to the replacement of cavalry in most armies by 1939, the Soviets retained a strong mounted arm. In the terrain and conditions of the Eastern Front, they were able to play an important role denied them elsewhere. Includes 50 black-and-white illustrations. The Soviets developed a doctrine of deep penetration, using cavalry formations to strike into the Axis rear, disrupting logistics and lines of communication, encircling and isolating units. Interestingly, he shows that this doctrine did not stem from the native cavalry tradition of the steppe but from the example of the American Civil War. The American approach was copied by the Russians in WWI and the Russian Civil War, refined by the Soviets in the early stages of WWII, and perfected during the last two years of the war. The Soviet experience demonstrated that deep operations (cavalry raids) against enemy rear echelons set the conditions for victory. $35.00 USD
