Thanks for these, AdamC. As usual, a mixed bag. Several I shall get, several I shall wait until I know the author. The Roman Civil War as a Raid title seems a little odd.

Hi Painty, 


Yes, I agree - a very mixed bag. Truth be told I am not 100% sure the Caesar's Civil War title is a RAID. I origunally thought it was a CAM but the price is different so I went RAID. It could well be a CAM but who knows.

Spotted it yesterday but never got around to mentioning it.  Very heavy on the Russians.  My dad remarked, "What did they forget 'Toilet cleaners of Putin's Army?"


Gothic line is great to see, the combat titles are the best, but overall it looks a bit weak.


Pretty sure the Caesar Civil War is an essential history.

The Combat titles all look great, though I'm surprised the Waffen-SS vs Soviet Rifleman title's going forward; I distinctly remember it getting the least votes for the last Combat title vote.

Glad to finally see the Polish-Lithuanian Warrior vs Teutonic Knight's going through.

I'm also surprised we're getting another American Revolution Combat title; I'm hoping the next one features either the Hessians or the Oneida.

CORRECTION - 


As Tarawa correctly points out the Caesar's Civil War title is ESS while the Russia-Georgia War title is an ELI.

Agreed, quite a mixture.  If the rest of the year’s titles are like this then my Osprey book purchases in 2023 won’t be too hard on the pocket, which might be a good thing after what looks like being a record buy this year.  Good to see the Naval Battle of Crete there at long last.  Next up the Battle of Lissa 1866?

Painty, as I recall, both those 18th Century battles involved France on the losing side.  Great victories over the old foe.  Gave added meaning to Rule Britannia.  Well worth CAM titles.

Hooray, finally something on medieval Lithuania. They're such a fascinating piece of medieval Europe. I'll definitely be buying the "Teutonic Knight vs. Lithuanian Warrior" book.

Personally I think medieval Lithuania could also use its own book in the "Warrior" series. Their tactics were often very different from those of their Teutonic opponents (relying a lot more on stuff like ambush and hit-and-run raids, or luring the enemy into marshes where they'd get stuck and become easy targets). And I'm sure the "Belief and Belonging" section of a "Warrior" series book could delve into how Lithuanian paganism influenced the lives of their fighting men.
