Atlas of the European Campaign

Atlas of the European Campaign 1944–45

The European Theatre saw some of the most famous battles and operations of World War II. From the beaches of D-Day through to the final battles in war-ravaged Germany, the war across the breadth and depth of Western Europe is brought to life through scores of carefully researched and intricately detailed maps.

Phil Stern is remembered for his iconic images of Old Hollywood stars, but his remarkable service during World War II as a combat photographer with Darby’s Rangers has remained largely unknown. Until now. Stern’s catchy 1940s lingo, honest and intimate observations, and humor, paired with his striking combat photography will transport you 70 years back in time to meet the hardscrabble Rangers and experience some of the key battles of the Mediterranean Theater.

 

Ancient & Medieval

The Samurai

Rome at War 

The Vikings 

The Samurai

In this exciting book, Stephen Turnbull, the world's leading authority on the samurai, goes beyond the battlefield to paint a picture of the samurai as they really were. The world of the samurai warrior is revealed to be one of great richness, with familiar topics such as the cult of suicide, ritualised revenge and the lore of the samurai sword being seen in the context of an all-encompassing warrior culture that was expressed through art and poetry as much as through violence.

Rome at War

This compact volume tells the fascinating story of the major conflicts that shaped the empire, from Julius Caesar's bloody Gallic Wars and the Civil War against Pompey that left the victorious Caesar Dictator of Rome, through the wars of expansion to its decline and fragmentation.

The Vikings

The history of the Vikings is bloody and eventful, and Viking warriors capture the popular imagination to this day. Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs and original Osprey artwork, this book presents a new window into their way of life.
