MERCENARIES AND THEIR MASTERS: Warfare in Renaissance Italy Reprint of Michael Mallett's classic study of Renaissance warfare in Italy. His account of the age of the condottieri – the mercenary captains of fortune – and of the soldiers who fought under them is set in the wider context of the Italian society of the time and of the warring city-states who employed them. The book concentrates on the 15th Century, a confused period of turbulence and transition when standing armies were formed in Italy and more modern types of military organization took hold across Europe. But it also looks back to the Middle Ages and the 14th Century, and forward to the Italian wars of the 16th Century when foreign armies disputed the European balance of power on Italian soil. $27.00 USD

THE DUKE OF YORK'S FLANDERS CAMPAIGN: Fighting the French Revolution 1793-1795

THE DUKE OF YORK'S FLANDERS CAMPAIGN: Fighting the French Revolution 1793-1795 In the wake of the French revolution, The armies of the First Coalition gathered round France's borders, the largest of which was assembled in Flanders. Composed of Anglo-Hanoverian, Dutch, Hessian, Prussian, and Imperial Austrian troops, its aim was to invade France and restore the nobility to what was considered their rightful place. Opposing them was the French Armee du Nord. In command of the Anglo-Hanoverian contingent was the son of George III, the Duke of York. The campaign was a disaster for the Coalition forces, particularly during the severe winter of 1794/5 when the troops were forced into a terrible and humiliating retreat. Britain's reputation and that of its military leaders was severely diminished, with the forces of the Revolution sweeping all before them on a tide of populism. $43.00 USD

CAUGHT IN THE MAELSTROM: The Indian Nations in the Civil War, 1861-1865 Discusses the plight of the Five Civilized Tribes – the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek (Muscogee), and Seminole – during the American Civil War. From 1861-1865, the Indians fought their own bloody civil war on lands surrounded by the Kansas Territory, Arkansas, and Texas. The onset of the Civil War exacerbated the divergent politics of the five tribes and resulted in the Choctaw and Chickasaw contributing men for the Confederacy and the Seminoles contributing men for the Union. The Creeks were divided between the Union and the Confederacy, while the internal war split apart the Cherokee nation mostly between those who followed Stand Watie, a brigadier general in the Confederate Army, and John Ross, who threw his majority support behind the Union cause. Throughout, Union and Confederate authorities played on divisions within the tribes to further their own strategic goals by enlisting men, signing treaties, encouraging bloodshed, and even using the hard hand of war to turn a profit. $33.00 USD
