Osprey will be working from home from Tuesday 17th March. We plan to continue all our operations, while reducing risk of infection by having staff work from home. Please note that we are doing our best to manage incoming post and parcels. For the time being please refrain from sending items to our offices and please assume that items that you have sent to us, have not arrived with their intended recipient. Our priority remains the wellbeing of staff, authors, customers, freelancers, suppliers and distributors. We would like to thank all for their support whilst we transition to virtual operations.

Military History from Shire Publications

In Military History

Greetings to all Shire & Osprey Readers!

Though we are sister publishers and share a cosy Oxfordshire bunker, sometimes it seems that the interests of Osprey and Shire (and, indeed, the newly-recruited Old House Books & Maps) couldn’t be further apart, with Buttons at one extreme and The SAS Ultimate Guide to Combat at the other.  However, deep down we are kindred historical spirits, a fact demonstrated by the ever-expanding range of Shire titles that look at the social history, nostalgia and collectibles side of Britain's military heritage. Explore the books below for some fascinating and quirky aspects of military history to complement the war-iness of the Osprey catalogue!
