THE BATTLE OF CRECY, 1346
by Andrew Ayton and 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.

THE WARS OF ALEXANDER'S SUCCESSORS, 323-281 BC: VOLUME I COMMANDERS & CAMPAIGNS
by Bob Bennett

When the dying Alexander the Great was asked to whom he bequeathed his vast empire, he supposedly replied 'to the strongest'. There ensued a long series of struggles between his generals and governors for control of these territories. This volume introduces the key personalities - characters such as Antigonos 'Monopthalmus' (the One-eyed) and his son 'Demetrius 'Poliorcetes' (the Besieger), Seleucus 'Nicator' ('the Victorious') and Ptolemy 'Soter' ('the Saviour') - and gives a narrative of the causes and course of these wars from the death of Alexander to the Battle of Corupedium (281 BC) when the last two original Diadochi faced each other one final time

THE WARS OF ALEXANDER'S SUCCESSORS, 323-281 BC: VOLUME II BATTLES AND TACTICS
by Bob Bennett and Mike Roberts

When the dying Alexander the Great was asked to whom he bequeathed his vast empire, he supposedly replied 'to the strongest'. There ensued a long series of struggles between his generals and governors for control of these vast territories. Most of these Diadochi, or successors, were consummate professionals who had learnt their trade under Alexander and, in some cases, his father Philip. This second volume studies how they applied that experience and further developed the art of war in a further four decades of warfare. The all-conquering Macedonian war machine developed by Philip and Alexander was adapted in various ways (such as the addition of war elephants) by the different successors according to their resources.

HANDBOOK TO ROMAN LEGIONARY FORTRESSES
by Michael C. Bishop

This is a reference guide to Roman legionary fortresses throughout the former Roman Empire, of which approximately eighty-five have been located and identified. With the expansion of the empire and the garrisoning of its army in frontier regions during the 1st century AD, Rome began to concentrate its legions in large permanent bases. Some have been explored in great detail, others are barely known, but this book brings together for the first time the legionary fortresses of the whole empire. At the heart of the book is a referenced and illustrated catalogue of the known bases, each with a specially prepared plan and an aerial photograph.

MERCENARIES TO CONQUERORS
by Paul Brown

When a band of Norman adventurers arrived in southern Italy to fight in the Lombard insurrections against the Byzantine empire in the early 1000s, few would have predicted that within a few generations some of these men would seize control of Apulia, Campania, Calabria and Sicily. How did they make such extraordinary gains and then consolidate their power? this absorbing study, seeks to answer these questions and throw light onto the Norman conquests across the Mediterranean which were even more remarkable than those achieved in France and England.

FIGHTING EMPERORS OF BYZANTIUM
by John Carr

The Eastern Roman or 'Byzantine' Empire had to fight for survival throughout its long history. John Carr concentrates on more capable war fighters who occupied the imperial throne at Constantinople, including such men as Constantine I , Julian, Theodosius, Justinian, Heraclius, Leo I, Leo III, Basil I, Basil II, Romanus IV Diogenes, Isaac Angelus, and Constantine XI. Byzantium's emperors formed a bulwark of Christendom against aggressive Islamic expansion, thus was the Empire able to endure for almost a thousand years after the fall of Rome.

ANTIGONUS THE ONE-EYED
by Jeff Champion

Plutarch described Antigonus the One Eyed (382-301 BC) 'as 'the oldest and greatest of Alexander's successors,' Antigonus loyally served both Philip II and Alexander the Great as they converted Macedonia into an empire stretching from India to Greece. After Alexander's death, Antigonus, governor of the obscure province of Phrygia, seemed one of the least likely of his commanders to seize the dead king's inheritance. Yet within eight years of the king's passing, through a combination of military skill and political shrewdness, he had conquered the Asian portion of the empire.
