Battleground Special, a Tour of the Bulge Battlefields

B2305

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Originally published in 2001, and now updated by the author’s son, this is another outstanding battlefield guide from Pen & Sword. Battlefield guides are primarily intended to aid those making the pilgrimage to old battlefields, but they contain so much information they will achieve a very much wider readership.Lavishly illustrated throughout and featuring clear crisp text, this is essential reading for tourists and enthusiasts. Strongly Recommended.

Death Before Glory!, The British Soldier in the West Indies in the French Revolutionary & Napoleonic Wars 1793-1815

B2304

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author has provided a graphic history of the British soldier in the West Indies during the wars with France at the latter part of the 18th Century and early part of the 19th Century. This was a very important point in the development of the British Empire and is an under-told story. This is an extremely readable story that deserves to be read by a wide readership. Highly Recommended.

Dawn of the Horse Warriors, Chariot and Cavalry Warfare 3000-600BC

B2303

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The history of humans seems to extend every year as new discoveries are made. In little more than 70 years, historians have moved the date for the arrival of humans back from an accepted belief of a few thousand years to a recognition that it is more than 100,000 years. During that time there have only been a handful of discoveries and inventions that can justifiably claim to have been world-changing. One discovery was the methods of domesticating the horse and using it for transport, farming and war. The author has done a fine job of tracing the history of the domesticated horse and its dramatic application to warfare. Highly recommended.

Byzantium Triumphant, The Military History of the Byzantines, 959-1025

B2301

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The Roman Empire expanded to rule most of the known world. In the process, it inevitably expanded beyond its ability to administrate. Equally inevitable was the subsequent fall of the Roman Empire, but it was not extinguished. Instead it divided under two Emperors. In the West it did break up and dissolve, but the Eastern Empire continued on and was able to defend itself from attackers to the West and to the East. The author has provided a compelling account of the period of triumph, as the world moved into the Middle Ages. The text is supported by an interesting monochrome photo-plate section. Strongly Recommended.
