Books…

The Rise of the Seleukid Empire (323-223 BC): Seleukos I to Seleukos III cover

The Rise of the Seleukid Empire (323-223 BC): Seleukos I to Seleukos III The Seleukid kingdom was the largest state in the world for a century and more between Alexander's death and the rise of Rome. It was ruled for all that time by a succession of able kings, but broke down twice, before eventually succumbing to dynastic rivalries, and simultaneous external invasions and internal grasps for independence. The first king, Seleukos I, established a pattern of rule which was unusually friendly towards his subjects, and his policies promoted the steady growth of wealth and population in many areas. Relates the remarkable twists of fortune and daring that saw Seleukos, an officer in an elite guard unit, emerge from the wars of the Diadochi (Alexander's successors) in control of the largest and richest part of the empire of the late Alexander the Great. After his conquests and eventual murder, we then see how his successors continued his policies, including the repeated wars with the Ptolemaic rules of Egypt over control of Syria. The volume ends with the deep internal crisis and the wars of the brothers, which left only a single member of the dynasty alive in 223BC. $23.00 USD

The Real Horse Soldiers: Benjamin Grierson's Epic 1863 Civil War Raid Through Mississippi Covers Benjamin Grierson's Union cavalry thrust through Mississippi, which is one of the most well-known operations of the Civil War. For 16 days (April 17 to May 2), Grierson led Confederate pursuers on a high-stakes chase through the entire state of Mississippi, entering the northern border with Tennessee and exiting its southern border with Louisiana. The daily rides were long, the rest stops short, and the tension high. Ironically, the man who led the raid was a former music teacher who some say disliked horses. Throughout, he displayed outstanding leadership and cunning, destroyed railroad tracks, burned trestles and bridges, freed slaves, and created as much damage and chaos as possible. Includes 36 images and 13 maps. $33.00 USD

Don't Forget the Magazines…

Traditions #23 cover

Traditions #23 In France of 1823, the internal situation is particularly tense and a generalized climate of suspicion limits the individual initiative. In the Chamber of Deputies, intolerance is maximum and common insults. It is in this high-voltage atmosphere that the government, trapped by its refusal to allow the passage of foreign armies, is forced to lift an observation body of 100,000 men to come to the aid of Ferdinand VII, hostage of the constitutionals. The decision goes horribly wrong in the assembly and even comes to the expulsion Manu Militari from Jacques-Antoine Manuel, Liberal member of the Vendee, on 3 March. [French text] $18.00 USD

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

La Revue Napoleon # 26 (New series) Epuration a repetition dans la gandarmerie, le proces du general Travot, l'ombre portee de Napoleon, and more. [French text] $26.00 USD

Modern War # 39: Axis of Evil – Iran Magazine includes an operational-strategic level two-player wargame covering a struggle between the Russian-led Eurasian Union and a Coalition of opposing states to gain control of the Middle East, from Iran to Syria and the Persian Gulf.

Game system models the situation at the highest strategic level. Using a variation of Ty Bomba's Putin's War (MW # 29). Each hex on the map represents 62 miles (100 km), and each turn of play represents anything from three days of intense combat to a couple weeks of refitting. Ground units represent mostly corps-sized formations, with some divisional task forces. Special forces units are regiments, brigades or groupings of cadres. The combat aircraft units represent various numbers of sorties needed to accomplish missions over the time frame of a turn. $40.00 USD
