VICTORY AT SEA: U.S.S. Missouri

Victory at Sea: U.S.S. Missouri Only the mighty Yamato displaced more than the massive, yet very fast, Iowa-class battleships. The last battleship to be commissioned by the U.S.A., U.S.S. Missouri (known as the 'Mighty Mo') acted as venue for the Japanese surrender in WWII. Iowa-class ships saw service far beyond the Second World War and were upgraded with modern electronics, weapons systems, and cruise missiles – U.S.S. Missouri was finally decommissioned in 1992 after a distinguished career. $20.00 USD

THE NISIBIS WAR: The Defense of the Roman East AD 337-363

The Nisibis War: The Defense of the Roman East AD 337-363 The war of 337-363 was an exception to the traditional Roman reliance on a strategic offensive to bring about a decisive battle. Instead, the Emperor Constantius II adopted a defensive strategy and conducted a mobile defense based upon small frontier (limitanei) forces defending fortified cities, supported by limited counteroffensives by the Field Army of the East. These methods successfully checked Persian assaults for 24 years. However, when Julian became emperor, his access to greater resources tempted him to abandon mobile defense in favor of a major invasion aimed at regime change in Persia. Although he reached the Persian capital, Ctesiphon, he failed to take it, was decisively defeated in battle, and killed. The Romans subsequently resumed and refined the mobile defense, allowing the Eastern provinces to survive the fall of the Western Empire. Includes strategic, operational, tactical, and logistical analysis of these campaigns and battles, highlighting their long-term significance. Hardback version: $40.00 USD

Tullahoma: The Forgotten Campaign That Changed the Course of the Civil War, June 23-July 4, 1863 July 1863 was a momentous month in the Civil War. News of Gettysburg and Vicksburg electrified the North and devastated the South. Sandwiched geographically between those victories and lost in the heady tumult of events was news that William S. Rosecrans's Army of the Cumberland had driven Braxton Bragg's Army of Tennessee entirely out of Middle Tennessee. The brilliant campaign nearly cleared the state of Rebels and changed the calculus of the Civil War in the Western Theater. $35.00 USD
