We all know that Osprey's titles have proved valuable to hobbyists since the first Men-At-Arms titles arrived on the scene 464 volumes ago.

You might be surprised.Continue Reading

HBO's Pacific Sources

In Military History
I promise John and I talk and think about more than just HBO's The Pacific over here in New York, despite my insistence on only posting about Pacific-related subjects.

Osprey Goes Steampunk!

Wow! I can't believe it's already the middle of October - and Military History Weekend is just around the corner.
