Samurai Armor: Volume I – The Japanese Cuirass This volume, the first in a two-part series on the armor of the samurai, traces first the history of the samurai themselves, and then examines the history and evolution of the cuirass or dou, the armor protecting the samurai's chest. Drawing on over 20 years of research and technical work by Trevor Absolon, a leading expert, this is a complete study of this fundamental aspect of samurai armor construction. Illustrated throughout with photographs and diagrams, this is more than just a detailed technical exploration, it is a meditation on a process that was, and still is, nothing short of an art form. $60.00 USD

Books…

The Sassanians: The Armies of Ancient Persia

The Sassanians: The Armies of Ancient Persia This book gives an account of the Roman relationship with Persia, and how it was shaped by the actions of Alexander the Great long before the events. Numerous Roman emperors led armies eastward against the Persians, seeking to emulate or exceed the glorious conquests of Alexander. Some achieved successes, but more often the result was ignominious defeat or death. Even as the empire declined, court propagandists and courtiers looked for flattering ways to compare their now-throne-bound emperors with Alexander. All the while, there was a small segment of the Roman intelligentsia who disparaged Alexander and his misdeeds. While the Romans dreamed of conquering the Persian realm, the Persians of the Parthian and Sassanian dynasties dreamed of regaining the lands of the eastern Mediterranean snatched from their Achaemenid ancestors by Alexander. Echoes of this revanchist policy can be seen in Iran's support of Shiites in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Lebanon. $45.00 USD

TMP Special offer: Save 15%. New price: $38.25 USD

Frankenhausen 1525 The Battle of Frankenhausen was fought on 15 May, 1525.

Very well illustrated, including color. Superb campaign and battlefield study. Color plates and maps. $49.00 USD

Axis Tanks of the Second World War: Images of War series Includes 250 color and black-and-white illustrations. The Axis powers had drawn on British and, in some cases, French design for their tanks in the period leading up to the Second World War: the Carden-Loyd tankette suspension was used in the Panzer 1 series, and the light Italian and Japanese tanks. German engineering talent resulted in the original and ingenious designs of the Panzer II, III and IV series and, later in the War, the Panther Medium and Tiger heavy tanks. $23.00 USD

Narvik and the Allies: The Polish Brigade at Narvik 1940 This work is about the co-operation between the Allies in Norway between April and June 1940, by initially considering the military-politics of the period August 1939, until the German invasion of Norway in April 1940. Much of the work examines the role of the Independent Podhalian Rifle Brigade and its interaction and dependency on the Allies as the Polish troops found themselves under French command. Other aspects of the Norwegian Campaign are also explored including inter-service co-operation amongst the Allies, how the Western Allies were still uncertain who their enemy really was, and how successful Narvik actually was, and what it meant for the U.K. during the summer of 1940. 30 black-and-white photos, maps. $50.00 USD
