 RUSSIA'S ARMY: A History from the Napoleonic Wars to the War in Ukraine

RUSSIA'S ARMY: A History from the Napoleonic Wars to the War in Ukraine

This comprehensive account covers the history of the Russian army from 1801 to 2022. Offers an analysis of military strategy and doctrine as reflected in specific campaigns, issues of manning and maintaining an army, and relations between army and society, at home and in the near-abroad. Identifies themes that weave their way through this military history: the adoption of a strategy to maintain a defensive posture in the West, an offensive strategy in the Balkans, and an expansionist policy in the East; maintenance of a large standing army; and a consistent unease about the army's and non-Russian minorities' loyalty to the state. $35.00 USD

 PERCEPTIONS OF BATTLE: George Washington's Victory at Monmouth

PERCEPTIONS OF BATTLE: George Washington's Victory at Monmouth

Because of his leadership and the actions of his army, both he and the Continental Army gained renewed respect from Congress, the American people, and the enemy as Washington became the face of the American revolutionary efforts.

 HERMANN GOERING: From Madrid to Warsaw and Beyond, 1939

HERMANN GOERING: From Madrid to Warsaw and Beyond, 1939

Discusses the career of Hermann Goering, Hitler's one-time successor and leader of the Luftwaffe. As air force commander-in-chief, he bathed in the glory of the Condor Legion's victory in Spain in April and the Luftwaffe's decisive role in the Blitzkrieg of Poland in September. Examines how Goering feared possible reverses during a longer conflict against a more powerful enemy, and was desperate to avoid a confrontation with the Western powers. At the same time, however, he was apparently powerless to prevent it. Contains 260 black-and-white photos. $45.00 USD
