War and Soldiers in the Early Reign of Louis XIV: Volume 3: The Armies of the Ottoman Empire 1645-1719

War and Soldiers in the Early Reign of Louis XIV: Volume 3: The Armies of the Ottoman Empire 1645-1719 Details the organization, composition, and history of the army of the Sublime Porte, starting from the information contained in Western sources. This approach, despite the partial origin of the information, allows a critical examination of the sources and the formulation of a neutral vision of the complex Ottoman military represented with all its costumes, weapons, and other apparatus. A larger part of the work is dedicated to the different types of clothing and insignia of the different corps, their evolution and the meaning of the different symbols. Includes 121 black-and-white illustrations, nine black-and-white maps, numerous tables, and 16 pages of color plates. $55.00 USD

Guerra Fantastica: The Portuguese Army in the Seven Years War Deals with a series of military operations that occurred in Portugal during the Seven Years' War in 1762 and 1763 which have been largely dismissed by the historiography. They are collectively called the Guerra Fantastica, Fantastical War, given the fact that the military units of the countries involved carried out multiple movements while not engaging in any battle. Explores contemporary correspondence between the Court of Spain and the commanders of the force that invaded Portugal, which is available at the Archive of Simancas. It makes use, moreover, of the correspondence between the Secretary of State of Portugal, the Count of Oeiras, and the Count of Lippe, and between the latter and his subordinate commanders, which is extant at the Military Historical Archive of Lisbon. At the same time, this work is reader-friendly, integrating several notes and original documents that help clarify certain of its major points, as well as a list of the units that participated in the military operations. $35.00 USD
