 Armies of the Northern Wars 1554–1679

In the 16th and 17th centuries the various states seeking to control the Baltic and its hinterland – Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Poland–Lithuania, Saxony, Brandenburg–Prussia and others – fought a series of savage wars that presaged the Great Northern War (1700–21). The organization, appearance and equipment of these states’ armies are explored in this fully illustrated study.

 

 Napoleon’s German Allies (6): Württemberg

The electorate – from 1806, kingdom – of Württemberg fought alongside the French from 1805 until late 1813, sharing in Napoleon’s victorious campaigns in 1805, 1806 and 1807 but also participating in the disastrous invasion of Russia in 1812. The climactic battles of 1813–14 saw Württemberg change sides and its troops take the field alongside the Allies closing in on Paris.

 

 The French Army of Africa 1830–1914

The French conquest of Algeria was the start of many decades of French military operations in North Africa, with the colourfully uniformed units of the Army of Africa playing a key role. Recruited from indigenous populations, French settlers and non-French volunteers, the Army of Africa was formally part of the French metropolitan army and separate from the French colonial forces.

 

 Chinese and North Korean Forces in the Korean War

In June 1950 North Korean troops invaded South Korea, triggering the Korean War. Facing defeat in the closing weeks of 1950, the North Koreans were joined by Chinese troops of the People’s Volunteer Army; the war would continue until July 1953. The uniforms and personal equipment of these North Korean and Chinese troops are described and illustrated in this absorbing study.

 

 India and Pakistan at War Since 1945

Since Partition in 1947, India and Pakistan have come to blows on multiple occasions, notably in 1947–49, 1965, 1971 and 1999. Shaped by their shared heritage of military service throughout the British Empire, the armed forces of both sides evolved and expanded as the uniforms and equipment of World War II were supplanted by the weaponry and tactics of the Cold War era.
