In Osprey Games
Osprey's first ever board game, The King is Dead, is now available everywhere! Continue Reading
After nearly a decade working at Osprey I am relocating... and sadly that means the time has come to wave goodbye to the wonderful military history publisher that has been my home for so long. And with my last day on Friday I have come over all nostalgic this week, reflecting on what it is that makes Osprey such a great place to work...Continue Reading
As we rapidly tumble towards the second half of 2015 (where did that last six months disappear to?) it is time for our regular catalogue reveal (a bit later than usual - sorry about that!) This is also a particularly exciting catalogue as it doesn't just include all of our usual fantastic helpings of military history - it also includes the very first boardgames and cardgames from Osprey Games.

Every year we look back on how our new books have performed, and a bit later than usual - here is the 2014 edition of our retrospective! As ever we will be taking a series-by-series approach and revealing the surprise packages, the best-sellers and from time to time the titles that didn't quite meet our expectations. This first blog covers Aircraft of the Aces, Air Vanguard, Campaign, Combat, Combat Aircaft and Duel.Continue Reading

Every so often we unchain our editorial team from the rowing benches, allow them to stow their oars and dish out some bread and water. The more dedicated among them use this respite to write us some blog posts. So, welcome Tom Owen-Evans with the first of a three part blog on Philip II of Macedon, who has been overshadowed by his more famous son...Continue Reading

Remembering VE Day

In Military History, Featured
Events are being held across the world this weekend to mark the 70th anniversary of VE Day and the coverage is already pretty extensive. The BBC talk about the planned events for the anniversay as well as running a pretty extensive interview with the last surviving member of the Dambusters. And of course there is the much-hyped military parade in Russia planned for Saturday (where some of the latest Russian tech is going to be on show for the first time). And, if the mood takes you - why not pop down to your local cinema and see what the future Queen got up to during the celebrations.   One of our authors, Nicholas Best - covers the last five days of the war from an array of different first hand perspectives in his fabulous book Five Days That Shocked The World. Below is an extract from the book, that talks about the very last moments of the war.Continue Reading
Earlier in the year I started to reveal what books we had taken from customer suggestions, plugged into our book vote and then gone on to commission. This was triggered by my reveal of 2015 titles which had highlighted the fact that this year has the best-ever customer suggestion to commissioned title ratio that we have seen (so far). My first two blogs took us through 2008-2011 book votes - and now I am able to reveal the 2012-2013 results. The only real proviso here is that as we move closer and closer to the present, the number of commissioned titles seems to drop off a bit - it isn't because we are not paying attention to the book votes - we simply haven't had enough time to unearth the right author and slip the books into our publishing schedule.Continue Reading
