Byzantine Warship vs Arab Warship: 7th - 11th Centuries #64 Osprey Duel, Angus Konstam and Peter Dennis
1 Byzantine Warship vs Arab Warship: 7th - 11th Centuries #64 Osprey Duel
Angus Konstam and Peter Dennis UK Osprey Publishing 2015 147280757X / 9781472807571 Soft cover New Book 
For four hundred years the Byzantine Empire's naval forces vied with the warships of the Islamic world for mastery of the Mediterranean. At the heart of this confrontation were the fighting vessels of the two powers, the Byzantine dromon and the Arabic shalandi, both oared warships. In those four centuries of warfare between two major maritime powers, both the Byzantines and the Arabs left us records of their doctrine and tactics, as well as of how their ships were built. Featuring full-colour artwork and rigorous analysis from an authority on naval warfare, this enthralling book offers a glimpse of the long-lost world of war at sea in the age of Byzantium.

Attila the Hun #31 Command, Nic Fields
2 Attila the Hun #31 Command
Nic Fields UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472808878 / 9781472808875 Soft cover New Book 24.8 x 18.4 x 0.7 cm Steve Noon 
Presents one of the most powerful men in late antiquity, Attila's peerless Hunnic empire stretched from the Ural mountains to the Rhine river. In a series of epic campaigns dating from the AD 430s until his death in AD 453, he ravaged first the Eastern and later the Western Roman Empire, invading Italy in AD 452 and threatening Rome itself. Lavishly illustrated, this new analysis of his military achievements examines how Attila was able to sweep across Europe, the tactics and innovations he employed and the major battles he faced, including one of his few major setbacks, the defeat at the battle of the Catalaunian Fields in AD 451.

Raffaele D'Amato UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472808274 / 9781472808271 Soft cover New Book 21.0 x 15.0 x 2.2 cm Giuseppe Rava 
The birth of the mighty Roman Navy was anchored in the Romans' extraordinary ability to absorb and perfect the technology of other states and empires. This is the story of the design, development and operation of the Republican Roman warship in the age of the conquest of the Mediterranean, from the first Roman naval adventure of 394 BC and the Punic Wars, to Pompey's operations against the Cilician Pirates and Caesar's victorious naval campaigns in Armorica, concluding with the consolidation of the Mediterranean Sea as Mare Nostrum with the battle of Actium in 31 BC. Archaeological photography, including those of exciting new finds, such as the Roman warship rosta (rams) found in the Aegates Islands, accompany lavish artistic reconstructions in illustrating the ships of the first Roman navy.

Catalaunian Fields AD 451: Rome's Last Great Battle #286 Campaign, Simon MacDowall
4 Catalaunian Fields AD 451: Rome's Last Great Battle #286 Campaign
Simon MacDowall UK Osprey Publishing 2015 147280743X / 9781472807434 Soft cover New Book 21.0 x 15.0 x 2.2 cm Peter Dennis 
The battle of the Catalaunian Fields saw two massive, powerful empires square up in a conflict that was to shape the course of Eurasian history forever. For despite the Roman victory, the Roman Empire would not survive for more than 15 years following the battle, whilst the Huns, shattered and demoralized, would meet their downfall against a coalition of German tribes soon after. This book, using revealing bird's-eye-views of the plains of Champagne and detailed illustrations of the opposing warriors in the midst of desperate combat, describes the fighting at the Catalaunian Fields and reveals the broader campaign of Hunnic incursion that led up to it. Drawing on the latest research, Simon MacDowall reveals the shocking intensity and appalling casualties of the battle, whilst assessing the wider significance and consequences of the campaign.
