Osprey Books…

Pacific Thunder: The U.S. Navy's Central Pacific Campaign, August 1943-October 1944

Pacific Thunder: The U.S. Navy's Central Pacific Campaign, August 1943-October 1944 Account of the WWII Central Pacific campaign, one of the most stunning comebacks in naval history, as in 14 months the U.S. Navy went from the jaws of defeat to the brink of victory in the Pacific. $35.00 USD

Wings of the Rising Sun: Uncovering the Secrets of Japanese Fighters and Bombers of World War II Evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of Japanese air power during the war years and how this intelligence helped them achieve victory in the Pacific. Fully illustrated throughout with a wealth of previously unpublished photographs. $35.00 USD

Soviet T-54: Main Battle Tank Its sleek and unmistakable shape was a warning to any nation that wanted to stand against the U.S.S.R. Yet all of this masked a flawed, outdated design, and when T-54s began to clash with the Western armored vehicles in proxy wars in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, they were found to be on the losing side of many of the battles. Containing 130 stunning contemporary and modern photographs, and written by two experts on Soviet armor, this authoritative book tells the complete story of the T-54, one of the most widely produced tanks of all time, including many previously unheard of variants. $35.00 USD

Run to the Sound of the Guns: The True Story of an American Ranger at War in Afghanistan and Iraq Nicholas Moore served as part of an elite special-operations unit at the fighting edge of the Global War on Terrorism. He served for over a decade with the U.S. Army's 75th Ranger Regiment on the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq. In Iraq, Nicholas participated in the rescue of Private Jessica Lynch, hunted Iraq's Most Wanted, and experienced brutal street combat, including 160 night-time missions over one 90-day deployment in the insurgent stronghold of Mosul. While serving in Afghanistan, he was also part of the search-and-rescue operation for Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell (author of Lone Survivor), and was on the ground again when a Chinook helicopter was shot down resulting in the death of 38 men and one military working dog. It was the single greatest loss of special-operations personnel to date. $35.00 USD

We Are Accustomed to do our Duty: German Auxiliaries with the British Army 1793-95

We Are Accustomed to do our Duty: German Auxiliaries with the British Army 1793-95 Although the German troops formed a major part of the Allied army in the Low Countries, there has been no detailed English-language account of their role. Their story is told here for the first time, based on extensive research in British and German archives, together with contemporary accounts and 19th Century German sources. Previously unpublished information is given on the process of negotiating the treaties with the German princes, the organization of the troops taken into British pay, and their experience on campaign, focusing on the key events for the various contingents. Their varied and colorful uniforms are also described and illustrated from contemporary sources. $60.00 USD

Amiens 1918: From Disaster to Victory Concentrates on the British and Dominion troops of the BEF. The first half is taken up with the attack on Amiens (and, to a lesser extent, on Arras). In the second half of the book, the author provides a cohesive account of the British response in retaking the initiative from the Germans, though not failing to give Allied nations their due. Also includes critical commentary of the performance of armies and generals and 32 black-and-white illustrations. $35.00 USD

The Italian Army in North Africa: A Poor Fighting Force or Doomed by Circumstances When most people think of the WWII Italian Army in North Africa, they tend to believe that the average Italian soldier offered little resistance to the Allies before surrendering. Many believe the Italian Army, as a whole, performed in a cowardly manner in North Africa. The reality is not so simple. The question remains as to whether the Italians were really cowards or actually victims of circumstance. While the Italian soldier's commitment to the war was not as great as that of the German soldier, many Italians fought bravely. The Italian Littorio and Ariete Divisions earned Allied admiration at Tobruk, Gazala and El Alamein. The Italian Army played a significant role as part of the German Afrika Korps and made up a large portion of the Axis combat power in North Africa during 1941 and 1942. In the interest of determining how the Italian Army earned the reputation that it did, it is necessary to analyze why and how the Italians fought. $30.00 USD

And Don't Forget the Magazines…

Gloire & Empire #81

Gloire & Empire #81 In January 1807, Napoleon was in Warsaw. If the Prussian army is destroyed, it still has much to do with the Russians who, for the moment, refused to fight. Yet he is equally concerned about Portugal which does not respect its Continental blockade. His policy, he writes to the Prince of Peace, aims to keep the English from the mainland: to strike their trade, to attack the bases of their power; This is where you have to strive first. With the Treaty of Tilsit just signed, Napoleon created the Observation Corps of the Gironde, which, under the command of General Junot, had the task of invading Portugal. [French text] $28.00 USD
