Marcus Furius Camillus: The Life of Rome's Second Founder

Marcus Furius Camillus: The Life of Rome's Second Founder

Biography of Marcus Furius Camillus, who served as a censor, was elected to six consular tribuneships, appointed dictator five times, and enjoyed four triumphs. He toppled mighty Veii, ejected the Senones from Rome following its sacking, and helped orchestrate a grand compromise between the patricians and plebeians. The Romans even considered him Rome's second founder – a proud appellation for any Roman – and revered him for being an exemplar of Roman virtue. Interestingly, he never held the consulship. Plutarch stated that Camillus had avoided it on purpose, and for good reason. The office was often at the heart of controversy, given that patricians dominated it for most of Camillus' life. $35.00 USD

The Sassanians: The Armies of Ancient Persia

The Sassanians: The Armies of Ancient Persia cover

First of three volumes on ancient Persian armies. The Sassanians, the native Iranian dynasty that ousted their Parthian overlords in AD 226, developed a highly sophisticated army that was able for centuries to hold off all comers. They continued the Parthians' famous winning combination of swift horse archers with heavily-armored cataphract cavalry, also making much use of war elephants but their oft-maligned infantry has been much underestimated. Focuses on the organization, equipment, and tactics of the armies that dominated the ancient Middle East by drawing on the latest research and new archaeological evidence. $35.00 USD

Mapping the Great Game: Explorers, Spies and Maps in 19th Century Asia

Mapping the Great Game: Explorers, Spies & Maps in 19th Century Asia

Trigonometrical Survey of India was founded in the 18th Century with the aim of creating a detailed map of the country. Under George Everest, whose name is on the world's highest mountain, mapped the Great Arc of Afghanistan, Turkestan and Tibet. Much of the work of the Survey was undertaken by native Indians, known as Pundits, who were trained to explore, spy out, and map Central Asia and Tibet. They did this at great personal risk and with meager resources, while traveling entirely on foot. They would be the first to reveal the mysteries of the forbidden city of Lhasa, and discover the true course of Tibet's mighty Tsangpo River. They were the greatest group of explorers the world has seen in recent history, all the while exploring within the context of the Great Game between Great Britain and Imperial Russia in the 19th Century. $25.00 USD

Waterloo: The Truth At Last: Why Napoleon Lost the Great Battle

The genesis of this book started in October 2016, when the author found still sealed records from 1816, and received permission to break them to read the roughly 200 accounts within. These contents challenge some widely held views: The start of the battle was delayed because of the state of the ground – not so. Marshal Ney destroyed the French cavalry in his reckless charges against the Allied infantry squares – wrong. The stubborn defense of Hougoumont, the key to Wellington's victory, where a plucky little garrison of British Guards held the farmhouse against the overwhelming force of Jerome Bonaparte's division and the rest of II Corps – not true. Did the Union Brigade really destroy d'Erlon's Corps, did the Scots Greys actually attack a massed French battery, did La Haie Sainte hold out until late in the afternoon? Most significantly of all is the revelation of exactly how, and why, Napoleon was defeated. $40.00 USD

A Glorious Chance: The Naval Struggle for Lake Ontario During the War of 1812 Wargame

A Glorious Chance: The Naval Struggle for Lake Ontario During the War of 1812 Wargame

Solitaire, operational wargame that puts you in command of the U.S. or British naval squadron on Lake Ontario in 1813. You have four months to dominate the lake but each patrol, each convoy mission, each amphibious landing you make to pursue victory risks full-scale battle with the enemy squadron – a battle that could leave you triumphant or shattered in a matter of hours. A dynamic card-driven AI opponent assigns your opponents missions, refits and launches new ships, and plots raids on your supply routes and coastlines. Lake combat is resolved on an odds-based table, modified by drawn/selected tactic chits, and can result in victory points for enemy ships destroyed or captured. The eight turns represent June-September 1813. Each turn, the human player assigns friendly ships or stacks to patrol, convoy escort, land-support, or interception missions in any of six lake zones. Card and chit draws determine which enemy ships may deploy to the lake or stay in the shipyard to acquire more potent weaponry. The player draws a row of Target Cards, face-down. Each card back shows a lake zone where the enemy may be active this turn. If a card's zone matches a zone with a friendly mission, an encounter is possible. An encounter flips that Target Card to reveal the enemy mission type and an effort level, which help determine how many enemy ships appear. $84.00 USD
