With 20% off such a huge amount of titles, we decided to take a trip down memory lane to reminisce and help you decide which titles deserve your attention this month.
In today’s post, we’re taking a look at our New Vanguard titles.
NVG began in the early nineties, with NVG 1: Kingtiger Heavy Tank 1942–45 publishing in 1993. Since then, hundreds of New Vanguards have joined the ranks, each taking a particular machine of warfare, and assessing its design, development and operation. It’s this approach that has allowed NVG to become one of our most popular series.
NVG reaches its 250th title this month when Maginot Line Gun Turrets goes on sale, making it Osprey’s third longest running series. Naturally we have long since covered many of the best-known tanks, AFVs, warships, and military animals but there are still plenty to go.
Next year we publish the first NVG on oceangoing ironclads – the American Civil War apart, it’s pretty much our first look at the revolutionary near-century that separates the Napoleonic sailing warship from the launch of Dreadnought. There’s still a few major World War II AFVs that we’ve yet to cover and quite a few more modern ones. We can also occasionally explore how armour has been used in lesser-known conflicts, as we did with South African Armour of the Border War. And New Vanguard’s brief to explore ‘the machinery of war’ of all kinds means that we can also sometimes cover other things mechanical and military that we think you might be interested in, from technicals to railway guns.
