Camouflage and Markings of Allied Armor in the Battle for Cassino, January-May 1944

"This latest in this series covers the armoured vehicles used in the advance to and fighting for Cassino. This involved American, British, Canadian, French, New Zealand and Polish units at different stages and in different combinations. To further complicate who had what and where, tanks were passed between units and sometimes operated still in their original markings! ... With so much variety of types and colour schemes, this is a great choice for modellers as well as those interested in armoured warfare."

The Last Hot Battle of the Cold War South Africa vs. Cuba in the Angolan Civil War

Despite a dearth of primary source materials from the Cuban and Angolan governments, Polack has crafted a fluent and captivating narrative of a pivotal battle that will advance the sparse existing scholarship on the events that took place between late 1987 and early 1988. No one book can be all things to all readers. Military histories, in particular, attract a variety of readers for many different reasons. While not the definitive history of Angola's place in the Cold War[4], The Last Hot Battle of the Cold War does offer a detailed examination of the battle of Cuito Cuanavale that will assist military historians concerned to understand the value of specific armaments in determining the outcomes of proxy wars in the Cold War era.

The Lieutenant Don't Know One Marine's Story of Warfare and Combat Logistics in Afghanistan

Where ever you work: be it in an office, a factory, in sales, or even a library, we all were the new person at some point in our career. Fortunately, most of us didn't need to learn our profession under hostile fire like Lieutenant Clement did. Weathering out a tough situation is never a comfortable proposition, but it is part of the human condition. The realization that learning is still an option is applicable for everyone at all stages of any career. Jeff Clement wrote an interesting and honest account of his failure and victories, I hope we can all learn from it.

Grunt A Pictorial Report on the US Infantry's Gear and Life During the Vietnam War- 1965-1975

Thorough as it could possibly be in research and as good looking in photographical evidence and style. It’s probably one of the first books anyone interested in the grunts in Vietnam would want to buy. It’s of the very best quality.

The Battle of the Bridges The 504 Parachute Infantry Regiment in Operation Market Garden

A review cannot do justice to this book-it must be read! For those familiar with the actions of America's airborne soldiery, you will have your beliefs revitalized! Would any other airborne regiment of the U.S. Army have done as well- perhaps- but in this case it was the 504th - and to it must go the laurels of "the Battle of the Bridges"!

"...an excellent story teller who paints a clear picture that brings each story alive.The stories make for great illustrations for the lessons learned. The lessons learned are as applicable to the business enterprise as to military leadership. He does a wonderful job of demonstrating liberty as a motivator demonstrating the importance of the individual."

Second Front The Allied Invasion of France, 1942-43 (An Alternative History)

The case he invites the reader to examine here is plausibly presented, well articulated, sound in terms of methodology and, ultimately, disturbing because it does look so promising. Of all the players, Churchill would probably have the most to answer for. The book deserves to be read with serious intent and rapt attention.

The Normandy Battlefields D-Day and the Bridgehead

...details what can be seen on the ground today using a mixture of media to provide a complete overview of the campaign. Maps old and new highlight what has survived and what hasn’t; then-and-now photography allows fascinating comparisons with the images taken at the time—particularly the aerial views—and computer artwork provides graphic details of things that can’t be seen today. A particular aspect of the book that is worthy of note is the photograph captions. A concerted effort has been made to identify not only locations, but also the individuals contained within well known photos - including in some cases their fate, during the battle for Normandy.

Spearheading D-Day American Special Units in Normandy

For even the most self-assured D-Day savant, it is impossible to read this book and not learn something new, such as the composition of the engineering teams who dealt with obstacles and mines on the beaches. Gawne's research is deep and air-tight, and his grasp of military organizations, uniforms, equipment and weapons borders on the unbelievable. "It is easy to list items carried and uniforms worn, but no writing can capture the shaking voice a man has when he talks of the sea running red with the blood of his friends," Gawne writes poignantly.

This book succeeds on several levels. It is without question a great read. Some of the stories are well known, but none better told....The advice in this book is eminently practical. Antal describes how leadership works in clear, concise, jargon free terms that make discussing the art of leadership both engaging and accessible.

7 Leadership Lessons of the American Revolution The Founding Fathers, Liberty, and the Struggle for Independence

In a superb blend of history and leadership, John Antal has written another 'must read' book that I highly recommend. After an outstanding career as a U.S. Army officer, Colonel Antal has drawn on his own vast experience as a proven 'leader of character' to pass along leadership lessons he derives from the actions of the United States' Founding Fathers. Antal wrote that "It has been an honor to write and talk about the leadership of those who won our Liberty," and his respect for the courage and sacrifice of those leaders during the American Revolution is clearly evident in this outstanding book. Antal is a lifelong student of history, and his mastery of the subject stands out as he uses carefully chosen historical examples to illustrate the leadership lessons. I recommend this book as a key addition to the personal library of anyone interested in leadership, history and the 1775-1783 struggle in which the United States won its independence.

JERRY MORELOCK, EDITOR ARMCHAIR GENERAL , December 2013


Special Operations in the American Revolution

The author is a very good story teller. He brings the events to life through the stories of the participants. The book fills a void in the literature of the American Revolution. Added bonuses are the book's bibliography. It is excellent. The operational maps and photos also compliment the narrative. … It is a must addition to the library of every military historian as well as students of the American revolutionary War. Dr. Tonsetic has crafted an exciting book.

7 Leadership Lessons of the American Revolution The Founding Fathers, Liberty, and the Struggle for Independence

"At last, a leadership book written by a real leader! A fine historian, delightful writer and, vitally, a superb combat-arms officer revered by his peers in uniform, Colonel Antal has given us a book that's both a pleasure to read and eminently useful for those "in command" of organizations of any kind. A stimulating five-star work you'll keep on top of your desk!"

RALPH PETERS, FOX NEWS STRATEGIC ANALYST AND AUTHOR OF CAIN AT GETTYSBURG , June 2013


Featured Review

1781 The Decisive Year of the Revolutionary War

“…a good story and Tonsetic tells it well…There is always tension in a survey like this about the ratio between the generalities and details. Similarly, in a book about one year of a long war, there is also tension between providing or assuming background knowledge about the historical and strategic setting. Authors grapple with what needs explanation and what the audience should already know. Tonsetic handles these tensions ably. He moves the reader nimbly from broad brush to detailed descriptions…covers matters that full histories of the war ignore or mention only in passing.”

With Musket and Tomahawk, Vol. II The Mohawk Valley Campaign in the Wilderness War of 1777

"Logusz does an excellent job outlining the Battle of Oriskany, where an initial Patriot relief force coming to the aid of Fort Stanwix was ambushed and almost wiped out. . . . fascinating, well documented, and occasionally thought provoking.

1781 The Decisive Year of the Revolutionary War

"Robert L. Tonsetic brings his extensive military experience and his academic training to the task. He is at his best when he delves into the battles themselves. Tonsetic thoroughly details the maneuvers of individual units and carefully goes over other factors such as terrain. . . This material will definitely be of interest to military historians and buffs . . ."—The Journal of Southern History
