Hellenistic Land Battles 300-167 BCE. The Hellenistic Period (323-31 BCE) saw the Grecian phalanx – long dominant in Mediterranean warfare – challenged by legionary formations from the rising city-state of Rome. This book provides detailed tactical analyses for all 130 significant land engagements of Hellenistic armies 300-167 BCE. The Roman way of war would come to eclipse phalanx-based combat by the 160s, yet this was not evident at the time. Rome suffered numerous defeats against the phalanxes of Pyrrhus and Hannibal, its overseas campaign against the brilliant Spartan mercenary Xanthippus met disaster, and several Roman victories over Hellenistic foes were not decisive. The story of combat in this pivotal era is not well documented. Includes 21 photos, appendices, bibliography, and index. $45.00 USD

Argues that had Eisenhower been more adept at taking advantage of several potential breakthroughs in the Siegfried Line in the fall of 1944, the war in the European Theater of Operations might have ended sooner. $35.00 USD

Wargames With Magazines…

Strategy & Tactics #328 Vicksburg May 1863. Vicksburg: The Assault on Stockade Redan (May 19th & 22nd 1863) is a two-player tactical wargame simulating the two Union assaults upon the Stockade Redan defensive position situated at the northeastern corner of the Vicksburg perimeter. Capturing the Redan does not automatically assure a Union victory. If and when the first or second Union assault succeeds, the players must then consult the Gettysburg Matrix to determine if the impending collapse of Vicksburg will prevent Robert E. Lee’s invasion of the North by compelling Jefferson Davis (who viewed Vicksburg as critical to the South’s survival) to refuse Lee’s risky plan to invade Pennsylvania, changing the course of the war. Scale: Each game turn is equal to 5 to 10 minutes of real time. Each hex represents 12.5 yards (22.8 meters). Each unit-counter represents a company or regiment, depending on the unit type. Components: One 22 x 34-inch map and 228 counters. $40.00 USD
