Charles XI's War: The Scanian War Between Sweden and Denmark, 1675-1679

Charles XI's War: The Scanian War Between Sweden and Denmark, 1675-1679 The book describes and analyses the Scanian War, which was fought from 1675 to 1679 between, on one side, primarily Brandenburg and Denmark-Norway and, on the other side, SE Sweden. The war was mainly fought in Scania, the former Danish lands along the border with Sweden, and in northern Germany. The Danish objective was to retrieve Scania which, a generation earlier, had been captured by SE Sweden and ceded by Denmark.

Although the Danish fleet was victorious at sea, and an alliance headed by Brandenburg defeated the Swedes in Germany, the subsequent peace negotiations resulted in no major territorial changes. Danish partisans continued guerrilla operations in Scania for years, yet the former Danish territories remained in Swedish hands. However, the Danish invasion of Scania was defeated by the young Swedish King Charles XI. Includes 75 black-and-white illustrations, 27 black-and-white photos, 14 black-and-white maps, and eight color plates. $40.00 USD

Piercing the FoG of War: The Theory and Practice of Command in the British and German Armies, 1918-1940

Piercing the Fog of War: The Theory and Practice of Command in the British and German Armies, 1918-1940 Since the late 1970s, anglophone and German military literature has been fascinated by the Wehrmacht's command system, especially the practice of Auftragstaktik. Analyzes the nature of friction and the potential command responses to it, including the development of a typology of eight command approaches, each approach then being tested to identify its relative effectiveness and requirements for success. Examines the British and German armies' doctrines of command during the period to reveal similarities and differences in relation to their perspective on the nature of warfare and the most appropriate responses. For example, this looks at the German doctrine as practiced by Erwin Rommel, both as a young subaltern fighting the Italians in 1917, and then as a newly-appointed divisional commander against the French in 1940, and is used to test the expression of in practice. Finally, this explores different command doctrines with case studies of two key armored battles: Amiens in August 1918 and Arras in May 1940. Includes four black-and-white maps, four black-and-white diagrams, and 14 tables. $50.00 USD
