Osprey Books

Panzer Artillerie: Firepower for the Panzer Divisions

Panzer Artillerie: Firepower for the Panzer Divisions The German Panzerjager, or Panzerjagertruppe, was one of the most innovative fighting arms of World War II, and its story has never properly been told. Many books have focused on an element of the story – the Hetzer, Jagdpanzer, Jagdpanther – but this covers the development and organization of Nazi Germany's anti-tank force from its earliest origins in World War I, through its development in the interwar period, and its baptism of fire in the early days of World War II. This is the first of two volumes that will trace the story through the glory years of Blitzkrieg and the improvements that were made when Soviet tanks were first encountered, leading to new weapons, tactics and organization. It is packed with previously unpublished wartime photographs, combat reports, and detailed charts and statistics to give an unparalleled account of this unique arm of the Wehrmacht. $40.00 USD

Cold War Fleet: Ships of the Royal Navy 1966-91 – A Photographic Album Contains a selection of photographs of Royal Navy vessels from the 25 years from 1966 to 1991.

Many of the photos are completely unique and have never been published, such as the images of the minesweepers HMS Wilton and HMS Bossington photographed during Operation Rheostat in 1974. There are many ships displayed that took part in the Falklands conflict and a large number of aerial photographs. Created by two of the most acclaimed naval photographers in the world, this stunning book is a window back in time to the Royal Navy of the Cold War, showing a fleet created to defend Britain and other NATO countries from Soviet attack. Features every kind of ship, from aircraft carriers to auxiliary vessels. $75.00 USD

Holding the Line: The Naval Air Campaign in Korea Naval and air power was crucial to the United Nations' success in the Korean War, as it sought to negate the overwhelming Chinese advantage in manpower. In what became known as the long hard slog, naval aviators sought to slow and cut off Communist forces and support troops on the ground. U.S.S. Leyte (CV-32) operated off Korea in the Sea of Japan for a record 93 continuous days to support the Marines in their epic retreat out of North Korea, and was crucial in the battles of the spring and summer of 1951, in which the U.N. forces again battled to the 38th Parallel. All of this was accomplished with a force that was in the midst of change, as jet aircraft altered the entire nature of naval aviation. Chronicles the carrier war in Korea from the first day of the war to the last, focusing on frontline combat, while also describing the technical development of aircraft and shipboard operations, and how these all affected the broader strategic situation on the Korean Peninsula. $30.00 USD

Sherman Lead: Flying the F-4D Phantom II in Vietnam Written by a pilot who flew near-daily combat missions, this engrossing book is his story of flying the F-4 Phantom II during the Vietnam War. Operating out of Ubon Royal Thai Air Base, Thailand, in 1968-69, Gaillard Peck and his squadron mates in the 433rd Tactical Fighter Squadron of the 8th Tactical Fighter Wing were tasked with flying combat missions into North Vietnam and Laos as part of Operations Rolling Thunder and Steel Tiger. The F-4 was heavily involved in the air-to-ground mission at this time, with targets being well-defended by enemy anti-aircraft artillery and surface-to-air missiles. Gaillard Peck's arrival in-theater coincided with the beginning of electro-optical and laser-guided smart-bomb combat operations. There were periods of fierce combat interspersed with lulls, and the fighting was intense and unforgettable to those who participated. Some men lived through it, and others died without a clear understanding of why. $32.00 USD

Uniform Guides…

La Battaglia Di Montaperti (The Battle of Montaperti) Volume 1

La Battaglia Di Montaperti (The Battle of Montaperti) Volume 1 First of two volumes, contains dozens of color images and iconography of the Italian Middle Ages. Montaperti in September of 1260 was one of the largest battles in the European Middle Ages. The battle between the Guelphs of Florence and the Ghibellines of Siena, with which they fought many German knights, sent by King Manfredi of Hohenstaufen, and the Florentine exiles of Ghibelline partly headed by Farinata degli Uberti. The Sienese Army consisted of 18,000 infantry and 400 knights from Siena, plus 800 German and Ghibelline Knights and 200 mercenaries. The Florentines mustered 3,000 knights and 30,000 infantry. The battle was much more than a squabble between the two Tuscan cities. The massacred Florentines – excluding their Guelfi allies – numbered over 10,000, a frightening figure in a city of 75,000 inhabitants. [Italian text] Available late March. $32.00 USD
