This month we are asking you which titles you would like to see in our Men-at-Arms series. Have a read of the descriptions below and let us know which of these you’d like to see us publish!
MAA: Women at War 1914–18
World War I saw the creation of, for the first time, government-raised women’s military auxiliary services by many of the belligerent powers. This book looks to describe these different services, including examples of women who actually took up arms, such as those in Russia, Serbia, and even in the Irish Easter Rising.
MAA: Iberian Warriors 500–50 BC
This proposed Men-at-Arms title looks into the latest evidence for the material culture of the ancient warrior societies that flourished in today's Spain and Portugal, and which would finally become deeply involved in the clashes between the rival empires of Carthage and the Roman Republic.
MAA Yugoslav Armies 1941–45
From the Royal Yugoslav Army’s surrender to the Axis powers in April 1941 through to Tito’s Partisans throughout World War II, Yugoslav Armies 1941–45 will look at the armed forces in Yugoslavia throughout the conflict, including the Serbian Volunteer Corps and Mihailovic’s Chetniks.
MAA Spanish Troops in South America 1809–1826
Spanish Troops in South America 1809–1826 looks to cover the opposition to patriotic juntas and to the liberation armies led by Bolivar and San Martin during the South American struggles for independence.
MAA French Naval & Colonial Troops 1816-1870
The Troupes de la Marine were always a separate branch distinct from the French Army, with their own organization and uniforms and a reputation for self-reliance. In the early and mid-19th century they garrisoned overseas possessions and mounted expeditions in the West Indies, West Africa, the Indian Ocean and Pacific – even in the Crimea, Italy, Mexico and China – and provided an army corps for the Franco-Prussian War.
