A HISTORY OF THE MEDITERRANEAN AIR WAR, 1940-1945: VOLUME FOUR. SICILY AND ITALY TO THE FALL OF ROME
by Christopher Shores and Giovanni Massimello

14 May, 1943 – 5 June, 1944. The fourth volume in this momentous series commences with the attacks on the Italian island fortress of Pantellaria which led to its surrender and occupation achieved almost by air attack alone. The account continues with the ultimately successful, but at times very hard fought, invasions of Sicily and southern Italy as burgeoning Allied air power, now with full US involvement, increasingly dominated the skies overhead. The successive occupations of Sardinia and Corsica are also covered in detail. This is essentially the story of the tactical air forces up to the point when Rome was occupied, just at the same time as the Normandy landings were occurring in north-west France. Co-authored by Russell Guest, Frank Olynyk, Winfried Bock and Andy Thomas.

SIEGE WARFARE DURING THE CRUSADES
by Michael S. Fulton

Sieges played a key role in the crusades, but they tend to be overshadowed by the famous battles fought between the Franks and the Muslims, and no detailed study of the subject has been published in recent times. So this thought-provoking book is a landmark in the field. It considers the history of siege warfare in the Holy Land from every angle: the tactics and technology, the fortifications, the composition of the opposing armies, and the ways in which sieges shaped Frankish and Muslim strategy at each stage of the conflict. The differences and similarities between the Eastern and Western traditions are explored, as is the impact of the shifting balance of power in the region.

OSPREY MEN-AT-ARMS 440: NAPOLEON'S POLISH LANCERS OF THE IMPERIAL GUARD
by Ronald Pawley and Illustrator Patrice Courcelle

This book draws on original regimental records to give by far the most detailed account ever published in English of the organization and personalities of the most renowned of the foreign units that served in the Emperor's armies. Unlike most of his foreign troops, these Polish horsemen were true volunteers, who owed their honoured place in his Imperial Guard to their proven courage and dash on battlefields from Spain to Russia. The text is illustrated with rare portraits and photographs, and with detailed colour plates of the Lancers' magnificent uniforms.

THE FURTHEST GARRISON: IMPERIAL REGIMENTS IN NEW ZEALAND 1840-1870
by Adam Davis

This new book focuses on Imperial Forces in New Zealand, with particular reference to Auckland. Existing work has focused solely on the conduct of the New Zealand (Maori) Wars between 1846 and 1866. There is an additional unexplored aspect of the conflict in terms of its impact upon the garrison and, in turn, its impact upon the civilian population. Auckland was the hub of the British military presence in New Zealand and the barracks played an integral part in local colonial society from sports to the provisioning of regimental supplies. Civil-military relations also encompassed the provision of aid to the civil power, while the discipline and health of the garrison also had the capacity to impact upon civilians.

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA ON WAR
by Rob Johnson

The Campaign in the desert, 1916-18. This is a study of Lawrence's ideas and his campaign of irregular warfare which has informed tactical theory and decision-making down to the present day. It explores the challenges he faced in a complex environment against a more numerous and better armed adversary, and the manner in which he assessed what was changing, what was distinctive, and what was unique to guerrilla warfare in the desert. Setting Lawrence in his historical context, the book examines the peace settlement he participated in and his legacy today.

ATLAS OF THE BLITZKRIEG
by Robert Kirchubel

In September 1939, Nazi Germany launched its infamous Blitzkrieg invasion of Poland, bringing about the outbreak of World War II. Faced with highly tactical and accelerated attacks aimed at disrupting lines of defence and encircling vulnerable troops, Allied forces broke under pressure. Within the space of a year, France had been invaded and occupied, while the forces of Great Britain had retreated headlong back across the Channel. Further campaigns in the air and at sea sought to subdue the British Isles, while more lightning-fast attacks in 1941 overran Yugoslavia and Greece, leaving the bulk of Continental Europe under Nazi control. Featuring 98 detailed maps, this impressive atlas shows, in intricate detail, the fighting and physical challenges faced by the German attackers and Allied defenders.
