THE BATTLE OF CRECY, 1346

by Andrew Ayton & Sir Philip Preston 

The battle of Crécy is of huge significance for the course of the Hundred Years War. It witnessed the defeat of a major French army with the king at its head, by the expeditionary force of a kingdom which was not renowned for its military prowess. Yet it is Agincourt which has engaged the popular imagination, and Crécy has been neglected. This book seeks to fill this gap, outlining the events of the campaign in Normandy and Ponthieu of which Crécy was the culmination. It offers new interpretations of the battle, from the composition of the armies to the place of the battlefield, and will be of major interest for any student of medieval military history.

OSPREY WARRIOR 42: REDCOAT OFFICER 1740-1815

by Stuart Reid & Gerry Embleton

The commissioned officer ranks in the British Army from 1740-1815 were almost entirely composed of the affluent and educated - the sons of the landed gentry and the wealthy. This title looks at the enlistment, training, daily life and combat experiences of the typical British officer in the crucial periods of the North American conflicts, the American Revolution, and the Napoleonic Wars. It compliments the author's previous treatments in the Warrior Series on British Redcoats which deal exclusively with the common infantryman.

THE BAE (HAWKER SIDDELEY) RAF HARRIER: A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE

by Andy Evans   

Modellers Data File 17

Designed by the Sidney Camm, the Harrier introduced the ‘jump-jet’ concept, and it was the Royal Air Force who quickly saw its unique possibilities. Although adopted by the US Marines, this new book concentrates on the Harrier in RAF service, from the P.1127 to the last of the RAF Harriers - the GR.9 flown until its (premature) withdrawal in 2011. This book looks at the development of the aircraft and its roles in the Falklands conflict, the Gulf and operations over Afghanistan. Includes 1:48 scale plan, 24 colour side-views plus colour modelling guides to the Revell 1:48 and Hasegawa and Italeri 1:72 scale kits.
