American War of Independence Commanders
Chartrand, Rene
ISBN: 9781841765686
Osprey Pub Co  2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, ELI093. The commanders who led the opposing armies of the American War of Independence came from remarkably different backgrounds. They included not only men from Britain and America, but from Germany, France and Spain as well. Some were from the great families of the "Old World", while others were frontiersmen or farmers in the "New World". Despite their differing origins, all were leaders in the events that led to the establishment of the United States of America. This book details the appearance, careers and personalities of the commanders on both sides. It covers such famous figures as George Washington and Lord Cornwallis along with less well-known men such as Admiral Suffren and Bernando de Galvez.   As New

Armies of Ivan the Terrible: Russian Troops 1505-1700
Nicolle, David
ISBN: 9781841769257
Osprey Pub Co  2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA427. It is generally assumed that the military reforms which propelled Russia into the modern world were due solely to the genius of Peter the Great. In fact, his reforms were built upon changes that had taken place during the previous 200 years, since the creation in 1550 of Russia's first full-time military force (the streltsi) by Ivan IV the Terrible. This account traces Russia's armies from that beginning, through the creation of paid regular regiments from 1630, up to the reign of Peter the Great. It is illustrated with rare early drawings, photos of surviving artifacts, and dazzling colour reconstructions of exotic military costumes.   As New

Osprey Pub Co  2011 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, WAR154.

British Redcoat 1740-93
Reid, Stuart
ISBN: 9781855325548
Osprey Pub Co  1997 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, WAR019. During this period, the British army earned itself a formidable reputation as a fighting force. However, due to its role as a police force at home, and demonisation by American propaganda, the army was viewed as little removed from a penal institution run by aristocratic dilettantes. This view, still held by many today, is challenged by Stuart Reid, who paints a picture of an increasingly professional force. This was an important time of change and improvement for the British Army, and British Redcoat 1740-1793 fully brings this out in its comprehensive examination of the lives, conditions and experiences of the late 18th-century infantryman.  As New

Cumberland's Culloden Army, 1745-46
Reid, Stuart
ISBN: 9781849088466
Osprey Pub Co  2012 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA483. In August 1745 Charles Edward Stuart, the 'Young Pretender', landed in Scotland and sparked the Second Jacobite Rising. The Jacobite forces seized Perth, then Edinburgh, where they proclaimed the Young Pretender's father King James VIII; they trounced their Hanoverian opponents at Prestonpans and crossed into England, getting as far south as Derby before withdrawing into Scotland. Far from universally popular north of the border, the Jacobite army bested another Hanoverian army at Falkirk and besieged Stirling, only to be routed by the Duke of Cumberland's army at Culloden in April 1746, a crushing defeat that ended any prospect of a Stuart restoration. Youngest son of Britain's Hanoverian king George II, the victorious general was lauded by his supporters while being reviled by his opponents as 'Butcher' Cumberland. His polyglot army, the subject of this book, included English regular Line infantry, cavalry, artillery, marines, and Scottish infantry (more Scots served on King George's side than followed 'Bonnie Prince Charlie'); English and Scottish 'provincial' infantry and cavalry regiments; and Hanoverian, Hessian, Dutch and Swiss infantry, cavalry and artillery. Featuring full-colour artwork depicting the distinctive uniforms of Cumberland's men, this exhaustively researched study offers a wealth of detail of regimental strengths and casualties and includes an extended chronology that places individual units in specific places throughout the campaign that culminated at Culloden.  As New

Der Alte Fritz: The Military Life of Frederick the Great: Volume I
no author
Uniformology  2009 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** These two delightful volumes chronicle the military life of Frederick the Great. Originally in a single volume, this work was published in 1895 and was a collaboration between two of Germany’s greatest military artists; Richard Knötel and Carl Röchling. The former was famous for his Uniformenkunde; the eighteen volume set of more that one thousand illustrations of the worlds uniforms. Carl Röchling was a member of the Berlin Academy of Art and was well known for his panoramic paintings of famous Prussian battles such as his scenes from the Battle of Leuthen (1757) and the Battle of Sedan (1870). His series on the Franco-Prussian War remains his greatest legacy. "Der Alte Fritz in 50 Bildern für Jung und Alt" was a children’s book produced in a style very typical for its era. A scene from most of Frederick’s battles are illustrated, including Mollwitz, Hohenfreidburg, Leuthen, Rossbach and Hochkirk. The scenes are mostly whimsical as is appropriate for publications aimed at children but the depictions are reasonably accurate. Any collector of illustrations and ephemera from the eighteenth century will enjoy these books. Volume 1 covers his younger life to the early Seven Years War and Volume 2 until his death. Each volume has 21 plates.  As New

Freikorps of the Seven Years War: Hannover and Prussia
Bassett-Powell, Bruce
Uniformology  2008 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** The Seven Years War (1756-1763) was probably the first true World War with the conflict being waged not only in Europe, but in the Indian sub-continent, the West Indies and North America. In Europe, the armies of Austria, France, Prussia, Russia and Great Britain, not to mention a score of German kingdoms, principalities and dukedoms battled for the balance of power on the continent. For Prussia and Frederick the Great, the war was a continuation of the War of Austrian Succession (1740-1748) which contested the rights of Maria Theresa to the Hapsburg throne. Although the Prussian army was mostly made up of regulars, a large number of volunteers, soldiers of fortune and freebooters were assembled into units by, usually wealthy, soldiers of fortune who offered their services to the Prussian King. These units were known as Freikorps and proved to be of limited value militarily. However, they served as line of communications troops, scouts and, more often than not, harassing forces who put the fear of God into stragglers and the civilian population. Some of these units even changed sides and both Austria and France would employ their own Free corps or Legions. This volume examines these corps, detailing their history (where known) and describing their uniforms. Finely restored illustrations by Philip Cranz of Knotel and Marbot prints provide the color plates along with two by the author.  As New

French Dragoons & Gedarmerie De France of the Seven Years War
Cranz, Philip
Uniformology  2011 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** After the major difficulties in researching the more than fifty regiments of the Cavalry Legere or regular French cavalry of the Seven Years War we though the simple task of dealing with a mere sixteen regiments of dragoons would much easier. Well I can tell you that thought has proven false. The dragoons were every bit as confusing and confounding as the regular cavalry. We have gleaned every French source we have found including royal decrees and the different books of the Etat Militaire from 1748, 1753, 1757, 1758, 1759, and 1761 along with the Essai Sur La Cavalerie published in 1756 along with more modern sources like Pajol and Lienhart and Humbert. The result are comparisons and contrasts for all these sources for you our reader to make the decisions for himself or herself. We have also presented beautiful full color schematic illustrations of each regiment along with beautiful renditions of the famous dragoon cap for each regiment. In addition to the dragoons we have included the sixteen companies of the Gendarmes de France. They ranked between the troops of the King or the Maison du Roi and the regular cavalry. These companies were all formed together in squadrons and served under their own commander as a regiment of cavalry. They were made up of richly attired nobles who went on campaign with a full baggage train and accompanied by their personal servants like knights of old. Their exploits were quite famous during the early part of the 18th Century. During the Seven Years War they were in line alongside the Royal Carabiniers at the battle of Minden. Despite heavy losses they fought bravely.Like all Uniformology publications you will find more color and more details than any other source.  As New

We have, from the study of the actual regulations illustrating these changes in the period from 1753-1761 along with names of the regiments which changed as well.   As New

French Musketeer, 1622-1775
Chartrand, Rene
ISBN: 9781780968612
Osprey Pub Co  2013 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, WAR168. The works of French novelist Alexandre Dumas have been reproduced time and again on stage and screen. Based on a genuine memoir by an officer named D'Artagnan, Dumas published "The Three Musketeers". The King's Musketeers were formed in 1622 and were populated by young men of noble birth, but often of poorer means. The Musketeers served as a form of military academy, which enabled these men to qualify for commission into the regular army, but the academy was not just a schoolroom - the Musketeers served in all major battles and campaigns of the period; their reputation for bravery was well deserved. This title explores the history behind the legends created by Dumas. Drawing on historical and fascinating accounts the truth of this most colourful and flamboyant of units is revealed.  As New

Imperial Armies of the Thirty Years War (1): Infantry and Artillery
Brnardic, Vladimir
ISBN: 9781846034473
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA457. This history of the Catholic armies of the Hapsburg Empire that fought in the Thirty Years War explores the role of infantry and artillery during the last major religious war in mainland Europe. As the states of the Holy Roman Empire fractured along religious lines, all of Europe was plunged into a bloody conflict that lasted three decades, decimated populations, and annihilated communities. However, amidst this social, political, and religious catastrophe, important changes were experienced within the organization of armed forces. The war saw the end of the large mercenary forces and the beginnings of the well-disciplined national army. This book charts this progression, illustrating and explaining the forces of the key Catholic armies, while exploring the weapons, organization, tactics, and colourful uniforms used by the infantry and artillery.  As New
