Muscovy's Soldiers: The Emergence of the Russian Army 1462-1689

Muscovy's Soldiers: The Emergence of the Russian Army 1462-1689 Describes and analyses the emergence of the early modern Russian army, before the military reforms introduced by Tsar Peter the Great brought it in line with developments in Western Europe. It will be shown that Tsar Peter's reforms, although decisive, rested on a legacy of previous reforms. Yet, the origin of the early modern Russian army can be found in the East, not the West. The close association during the Middle Ages with the Mongol Golden Horde had transformed the Muscovite military system into a Eurasian one. Includes 60 black and white illustrations/photos, 8 pages of color plates, 3 maps, and 4 tables. $40.00 USD

Augustus at War: The Struggle for the Pax Augusta New and penetrating assessment of Augustus as ancient Rome's military commander-in-chief. As commander-in-chief (imperator), he made changes to the political and military institutions to keep the empire together, and to hold on to power himself. His genius was to build a team of loyal but semi-autonomous deputies (legati) to ensure internal security and to fight his wars for him, while claiming their achievements as his own. The book profiles more than 90 of these men, as well as the military units under their command, and the campaigns they fought. $45.00 USD

The Komneni Dynasty: Byzantium's Struggle for Survival 1057-1185 The 128-year dynasty of the Komneni (1057 to 1185) was the last great epoch of Byzantium, when the empire had to fend off Turkish and Norman foes simultaneously. Starting with the extremely able Alexios I, and unable now to count on help from the West, the Komneni played their strategic cards very well. Though the dynasty ended in cruelty and incompetence under Andronikos I (the Terrible), it fought a valiant rear-guard action in keeping eastern Christendom alive. $43.00 USD

The Secret Expedition: The Anglo-Russian Invasion of Holland 1799 In 1799, as part of the Second Coalition against France, an Anglo-Russian army landed in Holland to overthrow the Batavian Republic and to reinstate the Stadtholder William V of Orange. Initially called The Secret Expedition, although not really a secret for both sides, the description of the invasion reads like a novel. Five major battles were fought between armies of four different nations, with unexpected deeds of heroism and unexpected defeats. There were secret negotiations and rumors of bribery.
