Osprey Men-At-Arms 230: THE U.S. ARMY, 1890-1920

Between 1890 and 1920 the U.S. Army underwent profound changes in organization, function, composition and appearance. The Army was transformed from a small, blue-clad force whose primary weapon was the single-shot rifle, into a mighty host of men dressed in dirt-colored combat uniforms, using automatic weapons, tanks and aircraft to fight enemies on fields across the world. This book details the Army’s developments during its involvement in the Spanish-American War (1898), the Boxer Rebellion (1898-1901), and World War I (1914-1918). Particular attention is given to the evolution of the Army’s uniforms, which are illustrated vividly throughout the book. $18.00 USD

Osprey Men-at-Arms 274 FLAGS OF THE THIRD REICH #2: WAFFEN SS

Examines the flags of the Waffen-SS: those of Walloon, Flanders, Norway, Finland, Danzig, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Croatia, France, Spain and India. An essential part of German propaganda was the raising of non-German volunteer contingents, variously named as ‘Legions’ and ‘Free Corps’. These units were from their outset mere token forces, comparatively insignificant in numbers and maintained chiefly for their propaganda value. However, as the tide of battle turned relentlessly against the Germans, the appeal for volunteers became ever more desperate. $19.00 USD
