WARLORDS OF REPUBLICAN ROME: CAESAR VERSUS POMPEY
by Dr. Nic Fields

The war between Caesar and Pompey was one of the defining moments in Roman history. The clash between these great generals gripped the attention of their contemporaries and it has fascinated historians ever since. These powerful men were among the dominant personalities of their age, and their struggle for supremacy divided Rome. In this original and perceptive study Nic Fields explores the complex, often brutal world of Roman politics and the lethal rivalry of Caesar and Pompey that grew out of it.

IVAN THE TERRIBLE: A MILITARY HISTORY
by Alexander Filjushkin

Ivan was the first Russian ruler to invade Europe and his Campaigns against the Livonian Confederation were initially successful. In 1558, Russia occupied Dorpat and Narva, and laid siege to Reval. At the Battle of Ergema the Russians defeated the knights of the Livonian Order, fuelling Ivan's dreams of a Russian Empire. However, as Erik XIV of Sweden recaptured Reval, and the Poles joined forces with the Lithuannians, the war began to turn against Ivan. This new book describes the organisation and equipment of the Tsar's army and the forces of his enemies.

THE BATTLE OF ACTIUM 31 BC
by Lee Fratantuono

The Battle of Actium was possibly the most significant military engagement in Roman history. The naval forces of Octavian clashed with those of Antony and Cleopatra off the coast of western Greece. The victory Octavian enjoyed that day set the state for forty-four years of what would come to be known as the Augustan Peace, and was in no small way the dawn of the Roman Empire. Professor Lee Fratantuono presents a compelling and solidly documented account of what took place in the waters off the promontory of Leucas in late August and early September of 31 B.C.

THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR AT WAR 1120-1312
by Paul Hill

The Knights Templar were a the medieval military order which played a key role in the crusades against the Muslims in the Holy Land, the Iberian peninsula and elsewhere in Europe. The order was founded as a response to attacks on pilgrims in the Holy Land, and it was involved in countless battles and sieges, always at the forefront of crusading warfare. This absorbing study examines why they were such an important aspect of medieval warfare on the frontiers of Christendom for nearly two hundred years. Templar leadership, command and control are examined, and sections cover their battles and campaigns, fortifications and castles.

THE NORMAN COMMANDERS: MASTERS OF WARFARE 911-1135
by Paul Hill

Robert Guiscard, William the Conqueror, Roger I of Sicily and Bohemond Prince of Antioch are just four of the exceptional Norman commanders who not only led their armies to victory in battle but also, through military force, created their own kingdoms in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Their single-minded and aggressive leadership, and the organization, discipline and fighting qualities of their armies, marked them out from their Viking forebears and from many of the armed forces that stood against them. Their brilliant careers, and those of Robert Curthose, William Rufus, Richard I of Capua and Henry I of England, are the subject of this study of medieval warfare.

THE VIKING WARS OF ALFRED THE GREAT
by Paul Hill

In the spring of 878 at the Battle of Edington the tide of English history turned. Alfred's decisive defeat of Guthrum the Dane freed much of the south and west of England from Danish control and brought to a halt Guthrum's assault on Alfred's Wessex. The battle was the culmination of a long period of preparation by Alfred in the wilderness - a victory snatched from the jaws of catastrophic defeat. As such, this momentous turning point around which an entire nation's future pivoted, has given rise to legends and misconceptions that persist to the present day.

MEDIEVAL SIEGE & SIEGECRAFT
by Geoffrey Hindley

Great sieges changed the course of medieval history, yet siege warfare, the dominant military activity of the period, is rarely given the attention it deserves. this highly readable account of this vital but neglected aspect of medieval warfare looks at the subject from every angle. It traces the development of fortifications and siege equipment, considers the parts played by women and camp followers and shows siege tactics in action through a selection of vivid case studies of famous sieges from the history of medieval Europe and the Holy Land.

FIGHTING FOR THE FAITH
by David Nicolle

Fighting between Christians and Muslims in the medieval period is often seen in the narrow context of the battle for the Holy Land. But, as this thought-provoking survey shows, the religions clashed across the medieval world - in the Mediterranean and the Iberian peninsula, in the Near East, in Central Asia, India, the Balkans, Anatolia, Russia, the Baltic and Africa. Over 500 years each theatre of conflict had its own character - methods of warfare differed and developed in different ways and were influenced by local traditions and circumstances.

ROMAN WARFARE
by Jonathan P Roth

Roman Warfare surveys the history of Rome's fighting forces from their inception in the 7th century BC to the fall of the Western Empire in the 5th century AD. In non-technical, lively language, the author examines the evolution of Roman war over its thousand-year history. He highlights the changing arms and equipment of the soldiers, unit organisation and command structure, and the wars and battles of each era. The military narrative is used as a context for Rome's changing tactics and strategy and to discuss combat techniques, logistics, and other elements of Roman war.

AMBUSH: SURPRISE ATTACK IN ANCIENT GREEK WARFARE
by Rose Mary Sheldon

There are two images of warfare that dominate Greek history. The better known is that of Achilles, the Homeric hero skilled in face-to-face combat to the death. The alternative model, equally Greek and also taken from Homeric epic, is Odysseus, ‘the man of twists and turns’ of 'The Odyssey'. To him, winning by stealth, surprise or deceit was acceptable. It is common for popular writers to assume that the hoplite phalanx was the only mode of warfare used by the Greeks. The fact is, however, that the use of spies, intelligence gathering, ambush, and surprise attacks at dawn or at night were also a part of Greek warfare.
