The U.S. Army Combat Historian & Combat History Operations: World War I to the Vietnam War

Alexander the Great Avenger: The Campaign That Felled Achaemenid Persia

Alexander the Great Avenger: The Campaign That Felled Achaemenid Persia

In Macedonia, a new model army had been developed, taking the traditional hoplite heavy infantry in a new evolutionary direction and similarly transforming the heavy cavalry. With Alexander the Great's invasion, these developments neutralized the Persians' own efforts to modernize their troops, tactics, and equipment. Despite the inclusion of a state-of-the-art siege train, the structure of the reformed Macedonian army allowed an unprecedented operational tempo. Explains Alexander's intelligent use of these forces that allowed him to dictate the course of the campaign. His excellent strategic and operational decision-making, based on an intimate knowledge of geography and logistics, along with well-timed movements and clever feints, allowed him to choose his battles, which he then won by tactical brilliance and guts. Also assesses the Persian capabilities and decision making, concluding that Darius III was not as inept as often thought. Indeed, he may have been the most militarily capable King of Kings but it was his misfortune to be pitted against the genius of Alexander, the great avenger. $47.00 USD

Catiline: Rebel of the Roman Republic – The Life and Conspiracy of Lucius Sergius Catilina

Catiline: Rebel of the Roman Republic – The Life & Conspiracy of Lucius Sergius Catilina

Lucius Sergius Catilina (Catiline) was a Roman aristocrat from a poor but noble family. He was controversial figure both in his own times and in subsequent historical scholarship. Catiline was cast first as the Roman equivalent of Richard III, and later as a left-wing revolutionary, depending on the times and historians' leanings. Although Catiline's calls for debt relief and other measures in his second consular campaign earned him support from the poor, Catiline was motivated by pride and ambition rather than by an interest in widespread social and economic reforms. Embittered by his failure to attain the consulship which he thought was his due given his heritage, he had his lieutenant Manlius raise armed forces in Etruria while he planned to stage a coup in Rome when these forces approached the city. $35.00 USD

All That Can Be Expected: The Battle of Camden & the British High Tide in the South, August 16, 1780

After the fall of Charleston, SC, in May 1780, the British set up outposts across SC's backcountry in an effort to secure that colony before moving into NC. American Gen. Horatio Gates led an American army, mostly comprised of untested soldiers and newly recruited VA and NC militia, south to confront the British near Camden, South Carolina. The mostly inexperienced American force found itself facing some of the best units of the British army under the command of one of its best generals, Charles Cornwallis. The battle was an unmitigated disaster for the Americans with far-reaching consequences. Also includes a narrative tour through the South Carolina backcountry to help better understand this fascinating campaign of August 1780. $17.00 USD

The Battle of the Little Big Horn: A New Appraisal

Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer died at the hands of native Americans by the banks of the Little Big Horn in Montana 25th June 1876. This is an established undisputed fact. What is disputed is the real reason that he died. So forget all you have been indoctrinated to believe and begin to learn the truth. George Custer was an anathema to his superiors, but the populace loved him. If he were to stand for president in the coming elections, there was a strong possibility that he would win. Neither William T. Sherman nor Phil Sheridan could allow that to happen. Thus, they conspired to put Custer in a position in the field where the opposing Sioux and Cheyenne were stronger and could deliver the Coup de Gras. The first of two volumes to deal with the circumstances that arose leading the native Americans on a collision course with the U.S. Army that fateful day and the death of a national hero. Subsequently the conspiracy is uncovered and shows how these men used their powers and positions and so deftly covered their tracks. Perhaps, but not quite. $43.00 USD

Belleau Wood & Vaux: 1 to 26 June & July 1918

Latest in a series of Battleground books differs from other guide books is the number of points to visit, as well as the clear narrative that precedes the tours section of these WWI battlefields. Not only are many new points of interest explored in Belleau itself, but the surrounding countryside is not forgotten. Headquarters, temporary burial sites and other features are included. The book is profusely illustrated by contemporary photographs and numerous maps, the narrative supplemented by a number of first hand accounts; the whole is supported by several walking and car tours. It is fortunate that so many of the AEF's actions took place in parts of France that have seen little development and are in agricultural or wooded country, which means that traces of their fighting are relatively plentiful. $23.00 USD

Hitler's Shattered Dreams of Empire: Crucial Battles of the Eastern & Western Front 1941-1944

Second of a three-part, in-depth study dealing with Hitler's influence on the crucial 1941 battles on the Eastern front, as well as the 1944-45 Allied invasions of Festung Europa and the Ardennes Offensive. Analyzes each of the Third Reich's military campaigns and the programs for the development of new weapons – paying special attention to Hitler's role in them. How well did Hitler do as Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, Chancellor, Minister of War, and Commander-in-Chief of the Army? The book is based entirely on the evidence of the most senior military personnel who were there at the time, from their contemporaneous diaries and subsequent writings. The sources used include the diaries and recollections of three Chiefs of the Army General Staff; Field-Marshals Rommel, von Rundstedt, von Bock, von Kliest, and von Manstein; and numerous other senior generals, Hitler's military adjutants, ministers of his government, and evidence from the Trial of the Major War Criminals at Nuremberg. Is there a consistent thread in this evidence? $43.00 USD

Hitler's Motorcars: The Fuhrer's Vehicles From the Birth of the Nazi Party to the Fall of the Third Reich

Hitler's Motorcars: The Fuhrer's Vehicles From the Birth of the Nazi Party to the Fall of the Third Reich

Many are the photographs of Hitler standing proudly in the passenger seat of a midnight blue Mercedes, arm outstretched in his famous salute to the adoring German crowds. Hitler loved cars and loved to be seen in and next to the special automobiles he purchased or was presented with through friends and Nazi Party funds. His first car was a 1920 green Selve 8/30, purchased in 1922, which was soon disposed of in favor of a Daimler-built Mercedes 15/70/10. It was in this car that Hitler was involved in an accident with a large truck in March 1930. The truck was completely wrecked while the large Mercedes suffered only minor damage. This prompted Hitler to remark: It was then I decided to use only a Mercedes for the rest of my life.

Security was always a great concern of Hitler and his entourage and his 770 was protected with bullet-proof windows and steel armor-plate built into all metal work. Wartime brought increased security fears, resulting in another Mercedes entering the German leader's car collection. This was the heavily armored, six-wheel G4, the first off-road Mercedes. Provides photographs of Hitler's cars, discusses the men who became his chauffeurs, lists the technical specifications of those cars, and describes many of the journeys undertaken by Hitler over the course of two dramatic decades. $37.00 USD

Stalin's Plans for Capturing Germany

Stalin's Plans for Capturing Germany

Drawing on a host of internal Soviet Politburo discussions, memoranda, and speeches, this book shows that the Soviet Union was a heavily militarized state that incessantly planned to unleash a great, ideologically-motivated war against the rest of the world. In fact, its entire political life revolved around the question of war, especially following the onset of the Great Depression in 1929, which convinced Soviet leaders of the imminent collapse of the capitalist system abroad. Slowed down by countless devastating setbacks, Stalin was nevertheless able to amass a gigantic army by the late 1930s. When Hitler approached Stalin in 1939, asking for Soviet neutrality in his planned invasion of Poland, Stalin sensed a golden opportunity: by supporting Hitler, he could turn the European powers against each another, allowing him to intervene once they were sufficiently weakened. However, Stalin miscalculated: Hitler beat both Poland and France in less than a year, and then turned against Moscow in 1941, long before Stalin was ready for his own attack. $43.00 USD

Argentine Perspectives on the Falklands War: The Recovery & Loss of Las Malvinas Series

In 1982, the United Kingdom and Argentina fought a war over an historical disagreement over the colonial ownership over the Falkland Islands. Within months of the Argentinian defeat, General Edgardo Calvi, then the Argentine Head of the Army Joint Chief of Staff, was instructed to undertake a wide-ranging and formal inquiry to investigate the performance of the Argentine Army during the Falklands. Calvi concluded that while the Army had the motivation, it lacked the organization, equipment, training, and ability to oppose an army capable of operating in a variety of environments. This book tells the story of the Falklands War from the Argentine Army perspective. $35.00 USD
