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.

New Artwork from August Books!

In Military History, Featured

It's time for another Osprey artwork reveal. This time we are giving you a sneak peek at artwork from some of our August releases:

Campaign 171: River Plate 1939 by Angus Konstam

Artwork by Tony Bryan

Our first piece of artwork is taken from Campaign 171: River Plate 1939 by Angus Konstam. Artist Tony Bryan created a fantastic image showing the scuttling of the KMS Graf Spee on 17 December, 1939.

Combat 19: Apache Warrior vs US Cavalryman by Sean McLachlan

Artwork by Adam Hook

Our next plate is taken from Combat 19: Apache Warrior vs US Cavalryman and depicts the second Kiowa-Apache attack, with US soldiers holding their position, well aware that breaking ranks would see them overrun by the horsemen.

Warrior 180: Early Iron Age Greek Warrior 1100–700 BC by Raffaele D'Amato and Andrea Salimbeti

Artwork by Giuseppe Rava

The final plate for this month's reveal comes from Warrior 180: Early Iron Age Greek Warrior 1100–700 BC. Painted by Giuseppe Rava, the piece shows a Cretan warlord and his retainers from the 9th-8th centuries.

I agree, 3 very good pieces, but river plates just edges it.

Huzzah for New Artwork Day!
Three great offerings from Osprey. If I had to pick a favorite, I'd go for River Plate (Color Plate) 1939.
