 THE KALMAR WAR 1611-1613: Gustavus Adolphus's First War

THE KALMAR WAR 1611-1613: Gustavus Adolphus's First War
Describes and analyzes the Kalmar War of 1611-1613 between Sweden and Denmark-Norway. Details the military systems of Sweden and Denmark-Norway in the early 17th Century and explains the development of the Swedish army and the military thought of Gustavus Adolphus before he used his reformed army with great success in the Thirty Years' War. Since Denmark controlled the Straits between the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, Sweden sought an alternative trade route through the sparsely populated Arctic Lapland – an option enabled by the 1595 Treaty of Teusina (Tyavzino) with Muscovy. In 1607, King Charles IX of Sweden declared himself King of the Lapps and sent men to collect taxes in what by tradition was regarded as Norwegian territory. In response, King Christian IV of Denmark and Norway in 1611 declared war upon Sweden and invaded Swedish territory from the south. Operations also took place along the Swedish-Norwegian border and elsewhere in the Baltic region, on land and on sea. $60.00 USD

RAW GENERALS AND GREEN SOLDIERS: Catholic Armies in Ireland 1641-1643
Study of the Catholic armies in October 1641 with a rising in Ulster. Insurgent slaughter of Protestant settlers in the winter of 1641-42 quickly gained canonical status. English and Scots armies routinely massacred natives in the spring and summer that followed. Reveals underlying pattern and purpose in what would otherwise be one apparently random battle, siege, skirmish, massacre and cattle raid after another, devoid of form or meaning. Includes a focus on strategic, operational and tactical operations. $50.00 USD

OLMUTZ TO TORGAU: Horace St Paul and the Campaigns of the Austrian Army in the Seven Years War 1758-60
Following the disastrous conclusion to the campaign of 1757, the Austrian Army regrouped in Bohemia. Meanwhile, Prussia attempted the reconquest of Silesia before seizing the initiative and thrusting directly towards Vienna. Olmutz proved to be a high-tide mark of the offensive. Over the next three years, Austria and her allies inflicted a series of heavy defeats on the Prussians at Hochkirch, Kunersdorf, Dresden, Maxen, Landeshut and Glatz. By the end of 1760 – with Berlin open to insult by Swedish, Austrian and especially Russian raiders – the King of Prussia was left with no other option than the desperate measure of attacking the Austrian army outside Torgau. Includes 242 plates of maps and statistical information, detailed gazetteer, and lists of persons and regiments named. $80.00 USD

THE BATTLE OF THE DNEPR: The Red Army's Forcing of the East Wall, September-December 1943
Details the general offensive that followed the fighting in the area of the Kursk salient in July-August 1943. The Germans, who were now on the strategic defensive in the East, sought to fall back and consolidate their front along the line of the Dnepr River. The Red Army's success in overturning these expectations along this particularly important sector is the subject of this study. This is a composite work based upon three studies carried out by the Red Army General Staff's military-historical directorate, which was charged with collecting and analyzing the war's experience. The first is a lengthy internal document, dating from 1946, which was eventually published in Russia in 2007, although heavily supplemented by commentary and other information not contained in the original. The present work omits these additions, while supplying its own commentary in places deemed necessary. Two short articles from another publication round out the collection. $50.00 USD

RETREAT THROUGH THE RHONE VALLEY: Defensive Battles of the Nineteenth Army, August-September 1944

RETREAT THROUGH THE RHONE VALLEY: Defensive Battles of the Nineteenth Army, August-September 1944
The first English translation of the best German account of the German retreat following the Allied Dragoon landings. Recounts the German retreat, and explains how the 19th Army sacrificed divisions to enable its retreat through the Rhone Valley. The Dragoon offensive in August 1944 was preceded by bombings and sabotage that hit the German forces located in the South of France – damaging communications, railroads and bridges. The landings were then overwhelmingly successful, despite localized German resistance. The following morning, a German force the size of around four infantry battalions was able to launch a counterattack, but by the end of the day, von Schwerin ordered a retreat under cover of night. What ensued was a race to retreat to the Burgundian Gate, or Belfort Gap, before they were cut off by the advancing Allied troops. The Allies had all the means for a successful pursuit, while most of the German troops, with the notable exception of the 11th Panzer Division, were largely incapable of undertaking an orderly retreat. Some units, including the LXII Corps headquarters, were surrounded and captured. $33.00 USD

Brings AtB's 'then and now' format to Stalingrad to match up numerous combat photos taken all over the city, giving full treatment to the months-long struggle for the city on the Volga.

It opens with a detailed account of the fight for the city of Voronezh before the main part of the book: comprehensive description of the gargantuan seven-month battle for Stalingrad. All stages are described in detail: the advance of the German armies to the city in August, the stubborn and heroic defense of the besieged Soviet 62nd Army against overwhelming German superiority in September-November; and the subsequent encirclement and annihilation of the doomed 6. Armee in the winter, ending in total capitulation on February 2, 1943. $43.00 USD

THE BLACKHORSE IN VIETNAM: The 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam and Cambodia, 1966-1972
History of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment ('Blackhorse Regiment'), which came ashore at Vung Tau, South Vietnam, in September 1966 in the Vietnam War. Terrain and weather were also factors that could adversely affect the employment of both armored vehicles and helicopters alike. The dearth of doctrine and tactics for the employment of armored cavalry in a counterinsurgency was equally challenging – especially during the pre-deployment training and initial combat operations. Despite the thick jungle and monsoonal rains, despite the lack of doctrinal guidance, Blackhorse leaders found a way to overcome the obstacles and accomplish the mission. $25.00 USD

WORLD AT WAR #92: Narvik 1940 (Wargame)
Two-player wargame of low to intermediate complexity that simulates the battles around Narvik, Norway, in 1940. To control complexity and present an overall force commander's view of the battle, the game uses a tactically scaled map and units of maneuver coupled with an operationally scaled turn length. The Allied player is normally on the offensive, trying to clear the Germans from the Narvik area, but the German player has opportunities for counterattacks.
