Ever see the 60's version of "The Magnificent Seven"?

That is exactly how Yul Brenner's "Chris" and Steve McQueen's "Ben" meet in the early part of the movie, Yul driving the rig and Steve riding shotgun so they could bury an Indian in Boot Hill.

OPERATIONS OF THE POLISH ARMY DURING 1809

THE WAR IN THE PACIFIC (South America) Also known as the 'Saltpeter War' or the 'Guano War' because the possession of these two highly profitable nitrates was the main cause of the conflict. This book examines the troops, uniforms and equipment used by the Chilean, Peruvian and Bolivian forces, and traces the events of the war from the early naval blockades, through major pitched battles, to the final guerilla campaign in occupied Peru. The war ended in total victory for Chile, and that country's military emergence thereafter as 'the Prussia of South America,' while it cost Peru some lucrative provinces, and Bolivia its outlet to the Pacific coast. A lavishly illustrated book with original plates by artist Angel Garcia Pinto. $30.00 USD

OPERATIONS OF THE POLISH ARMY DURING 1809

OPERATIONS OF THE POLISH ARMY DURING 1809 Originally published in 1841. Written by General Roman Soltyk and translated by George Nafziger. Reasoned critique of the operations of the Polish Army, disputing its territory and its liberties from the Austrian Army foot by foot. It was written by a man who was personally familiar with the people and events discussed in this work. Using original material along with his memoirs, General Soltyk lays out a fascinating and detailed account of the little researched, but equally important theater of war. $20.00 USD

HISTORY OF THE POLISH REVOLUTION OF 1830 With the ascension of Nicholas I as Tsar, the new administration attempted to clamp down on any nationalist thoughts. The Poles rose in rebellion and for two years fought against the Russians, seeking to re-establish Poland as an independent nation once again. The uprising was crushed, and though there would be further such revolutions, Poland would not become truly independent until 1919. This detailed account imparts focus on the innumerable battles. Written by a participant in the uprising and containing more than 30 maps, it is has long been a source of information on this event. $20.00 USD

DISPUTED VICTORY: Schley, Sampson and the Spanish-American War of 1898 An account of the naval campaign of Santiago de Cuba during the Spanish-American War of 1898 and the subsequent public controversy and Court of Inquiry, presided over by Admiral Dewey, over who was entitled to the credit of victory over the Spanish: Commodore Schley or Admiral Sampson. Includes 16 pages of black-and-white plates and six black-and-white maps. $50.00 USD

5TH SS DIVISION WIKING AT WAR 1941-1945: Images of War Series Drawing on a superb collection of rare and unpublished photographs, this is the fifth book in the Waffen-SS Images of War series and tells the dramatic story of the 5th SS Panzer Division Wiking at war. The men of the division were recruited from foreign volunteers in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, the Netherlands, and Belgium under the command of German officers. Not all were collaborators – the choice they were all too often presented with was join up or be locked up – or worse. During the course of the war, the division served on the Eastern Front in 1941, and eventually surrendered in May 1945 to the American forces in Austria. $25.00 USD
