HOTSPUR: Sir Henry Percy and the Myth of Chivalry  On 21 July 1403 Sir Henry Percy – better known as Hotspur – led a rebel army out at Shrewsbury to face the forces of the king Henry IV. The battle was both bloody and decisive. Hotspur was shot down by an arrow and killed. Posthumously he was declared a traitor and his lands forfeited to the crown. This was an ignominious end to the brilliant career of one of the most famous medieval noblemen, a remarkable soldier, diplomat, and courtier who played a leading role in the reigns of Richard II and Henry IV. How did he earn his extraordinary reputation, and why did Shakespeare portray him as a fearsomely brave but flawed hero who, despite a traitor’s death, remained the mirror of chivalry? $43.00

THE ARMY OF THE KINGDOM OF ITALY, 1805-1814: Uniforms, Organization, Campaigns  As well as being Emperor of France, Napoleon was also King of Italy – a state that essentially comprised all Italy north of the Kingdom of Naples. The Army of the Kingdom of Italy fought alongside that of France in all of the major campaigns of the Grande Armee as well as contributing troops to the French army in Spain. It was amongst France’s most reliable allies but it is often confused with what the French termed the Armee d’Italie — a different, if related, entity. The author explains how and why these two are different. This examines the uniforms, organization, personnel and campaigns of that army. Includes 40 b/w illustrations, 12 b/w photos, 16 color illustrations, 16 pages of color plates, and one map. $45.00

LIEUTENANT GENERAL JAMES LONGSTREET – INNOVATIVE MILITARY STRATEGIST: The Most Misunderstood Civil War General  Examines the unique strategies and technological achievements made by Lieutenant-General James Longstreet, commander of the First Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia, during the American Civil War. Offers a new viewpoint of the war and the generals who tailored their designs to pursue the war, analyses Longstreet’s views of the generals and the tactics and strategy they employed, and examines why Longstreet proposed and urged a new type of warfare against a backdrop of technological developments and the disparity between the North and South. Longstreet advocated for defensive warfare, using entrenchments, and trying to maneuver the enemy to assault his position, thus conserving manpower, resources and supplies. Includes 40 photographs and five maps. $35.00
