BOLT ACTION: 28mm Italian Army & Blackshirts Box contains 30 plastic 28mm highly customizable Italian Infantry, with decal sheet and assembly guide.

BETRAYAL OF AN ARMY: Mesopotamia 1914-1916

BETRAYAL OF AN ARMY: Mesopotamia 1914-1916 Hardback version. The British invasion of Mesopotamia was initially successful in securing the oil fields around Basra by November 1914. Despite evidence of stiffening Turkish resistance and inadequate supply lines which relied solely on the River Tigris, the Expeditionary Force was disastrously ordered to advance on Baghdad under the command of the ambitious, capable but flawed Major General Charles Townshend.

After a Pyrrhic victory at Ctesiphon in November 1915, the British were forced to withdraw to Kut. After a five-month siege, Townshend had little option but to surrender due to heavy losses and inadequate supplies. Re-examines the circumstances and personalities that brought about such a disastrous and costly outcome to a classic example of 'mission creep'. $45.00 USD

BATTLE OF PELELIU 1944: Three Days That Turned into Three Months Images of War series. At 08.32 hours on 15 September 1944, the Marines went ashore. Despite bitter fighting, and a ferocious Japanese defense, by the end of the day the Marines had a firm hold on Peleliu. But rather than Japanese resistance crumbling during the following days as had been expected, it stiffened, as they withdrew to their prepared defensive positions. The woods, swamps, caves and mountains inland had been turned into a veritable fortress – it was there where the real battle for possession of Peleliu was fought. $25.00 USD
