The best-known clashes between the whites and the Indians of this region are the series of Apache wars, particularly between the early s and the late s.

Organization of the Luftwaffe (1933–45)

However, there were other important regional campaigns over the centuries - for example, Coronado's battle against the Zuni at Hawikuh in , during his search for the legendary 'Seven Cities of Cibola'; the Pueblo Revolt of ; and the Taos Revolt of - and warriors of all of these are described and illustrated in this book. During the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, and the War of , these tribes took sides and became important allies of the warring nations.

However, slowly the Indians were pushed westward by the encroachment of more settlers. This tension finally culminated in the Black Hawk's War, which ended with the deportation of many tribes to distant reservations.

  8. From the death of the first president in to the rise of the Nationalist Kuomintang government in , the differing regions of this vast country were ruled by endlessly forming, breaking and re-forming alliances of regional generals who ruled as 'warlords'. In the mid- to late s some of these regional warlords acted essentially as local kings and much like Sengoku-period Japan, fewer, larger power-blocks emerged, fielding armies hundreds of thousands strong. This book will reveal each great warlord as well as the organization of their forces which acquired much and very varied weaponry from the west including the latest French air force bombers.

    They were also joined by Japanese, White Russian and some Western soldiers of fortune which adds even more color to a fascinating and oft-forgotten period. It was an African war that captured the attention of the western media, with individual commanders such as Biafran leader Colonel Ojukwu and Federal Colonel Adekunle becoming familiar figures across the globe. The Nigerian forces easily outnumbered their opponents and benefitted from British and Soviet equipment, yet against all the odds the Biafrans held out for two and a half years, inflicting many setbacks on the Federal forces before their eventual surrender in Specially commissioned artwork and historical photos, including some from respected Italian war photographer Romano Ganoni, reflect the diverse array of uniforms and equipment on both sides, with images ranging from Sandhurst-educated officers in immaculate uniform to ragged militiamen armed with World War II kit.

    Many of these conflicts became known as 'Banana Wars. The conflicts in Honduras and Nicaragua saw the intervention of US Marines, and later wars involved armour and aircraft from the militaries of Europe. Using detailed color plates and a wealth of contemporary photographs, this book shows the uniforms, equipment and strategies of the armies involved in these conflicts little known in the West. Covering wars crossing the length and breadth of the continent, this is the fascinating account of the wars that helped shape modern Latin America.

    Forming an army of some , troops from Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Montenego, they took on a force of , Turkish soldiers. Both sides were equipped with the latest weapons technology. This book looks at the diverse and sometimes colorful uniforms worn by both sides, paying special attention to insignia, weapons, and equipment. It also gives an overview of the campaigns that became a 'priming pan' of World War I.

    It gave birth to the modern Turkish state, displacing millions and creating bitter memories of atrocities committed by both sides. Augmented with illustrations and rare photographs and beautiful, this work explores the history, organization, and appearance of the armies, both guerilla and conventional. Lee assumed personal command of troops engaged in driving the Federal Army of the Potomac out of the Richmond area - troops which would henceforth be known as The Army of Northern Virginia.

    Luftwaffe Airborne and Field Units - Osprey Publishing

    Philip Katcher explores in absorbing detail all aspects of the army, including infantry, cavalry, artillery, technical and medical corps, paying particular attention to equipment, weapons and uniforms. Contemporary and museum photographs, together with the author's expert text, combine to a paint a vivid and accurate picture of what life was like for the average Confederate soldier. For General George B. McClellan, the dejected Union troops who poured into Washington fresh from defeat at Bull Run on Monday 22 July, , were to provide the raw material which he would train, equip, organize and ultimately transform from a mere mob into an effective fighting force.

    In October the Army of the Potomac officially came into being. This entertaining volume from the same team of author Philip Katcher and artist Michael Youens who produced Men-at-Arms 37 The Army of Northern Virginia, explores how this transition came about, with a particular emphasis on weapons, uniforms and equipment. The Maori had a fierce and long-established warrior tradition and subduing them took a lengthy British Army commitment, only surpassed in the Victorian period by that on the North-West Frontier of India.

    Warfare had been endemic in pre-colonial New Zealand and Maori groups maintained fortified villages or pas. The small early British coastal settlements were tolerated, and in the s a chief named Hongi Hika travelled to Britain with a missionary and returned laden with gifts. He promptly exchanged these for muskets, and began an aggressive year expansion. By the s many Maori had acquired firearms and had perfected their bush-warfare tactics. In the last phase of the wars a religious movement, Pai Maarire 'Hau Hau' , inspired remarkable guerrilla leaders such as Te Kooti Arikirangi to renewed resistance.

    This final phase saw a reduction in British Army forces. European victory was not total, but led to a negotiated peace that preserved some of the Maori people's territories and freedoms. Initially, the only Crown forces available were redcoats from the small, scattered garrisons, but by the problem of outlawry led to the formation of the first Mounted Police from these soldiers. The gold strikes of the s attracted a new group of men who preferred to get rich by the gun rather than the shovel.

    The roads, and later railways, that linked the mines with the cities offered many tempting targets and were preyed upon by the bushrangers.

The war saw the most powerful professional army in the world pitted against the unconventional tactics of the undisciplined Boers.

    Arguably the first permanent tactical formation seen in Europe since the Roman cohort, the tercio was the forerunner of modern formations such as the battalion and regiment. The variety of different weapons fielded in the tercio meant the Spanish infantry could resist opposing cavalry forces while overcoming every kind of enemy infantry deployed against them. Featuring full-color artwork and photographs of rare items held at the Spanish Army Museum, this study covers the whole period during which the tercios were active, opening with the third Italian war between the forces of France and the Holy Roman Emperor and concluding with the final transformation of the Spanish tercios into regiments in Securing a foothold in Eritrea on the Red Sea coast, the Italians quickly became embroiled in a shooting war with the Ethiopians.

    The war proved a disaster for the Italians, who suffered three major defeats against the forces of Emperor Menelik's army, including a horrendous massacre at Adowa, the largest defeat of a colonial army prior to World War I. This book looks at the campaign with an emphasis on the colorful uniforms worn by both sides. After peacekeeping duties in South-East Asia, Africa, and the Middle East in the ss, 'Diggers' were sent to safeguard the newly independent East Timor from Indonesian harassment in , and to provide long-term protection and mentoring since During these campaigns the Australian SAS Regiment and Commandos have fully matured into 'Tier 1' assets, internationally recognized for their wide range of capabilities.

Portugal had established its present-day borders by and the following century saw extensive warfare that confirmed Portugal's independence and allowed it to aspire to maritime expansion, sponsored by monarchs such as Prince Henry the Navigator.

    During this nearly year period, the Portuguese fought alongside other Iberian forces against the Moors of Andalusia; with English help successfully repelled a Castilian invasion ; fought the Moors in Morocco, and Africans, the Ottoman Turks, and the Spanish in colonial competition. The colorful and exotic Portuguese forces that prevailed in these battles on land and sea are the subject of this book. In the late s and early s AD, their state fragmented under pressure from the Khazars -- one group moved south into what became Bulgaria, but the rest moved north during the 7th and 8th centuries to the basin of the Volga river.

    There they remained under Khazar domination until the Khazar Khanate was defeated by Kievan Russia in In the s, they managed to maul Genghis Khan's Mongols, who returned to devastate their towns in revenge.

    By the s they had recovered much of their wealth, but they were caught in the middle between the Tatar Golden Horde and the Christian Russian principalities. They were ravaged by these two armies in turn on several occasions between and A new city then rose from the ashes - Kazan, originally called New Bulgar - and the successor Islamic Khanate of Kazan resisted the Russians until falling to Ivan the Terrible in The costumes, armament, armor, and fighting methods of the Volga Bulgars during this momentous period are explored in this fully illustrated study.

    The League was formed to protect the economic and political interests of member cities throughout a vast and complex trading network. The League continued to operate well into the 17th century, but its golden age was between c. During its years of dominance the League's large ships - called 'cogs' - were at the forefront of maritime technology, were early users of cannon, and were manned by strong fighting crews to defend them from pirates in both open-sea and river warfare.

    The home cities raised their own armies for mutual defense, and their riches both allowed them, and required them, to invest in fortifications and gunpowder weapons, since as very attractive targets they were subjected to sieges at various times. The following year they were named Dragons de l'Imperatrice in a unique compliment to the Empress Josephine. As a ceremonial regiment it enjoyed many privileges, but it also saw combat on a number of occasions, including the battles of Essling and Wagram , the Russian campaign , when it suffered severe losses , at Bautzen, Wachau, and Leipzig , in the Campaign of France, and at Ligny and Waterloo During the 20th century Austria, Poland, Russia, Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Romania vied for power over parts of this vast and fragmented area; and its divided peoples rose time and again in vain attempts to win their independence.

    Joined by both Protestants and Catholics, the rebellion quickly spread across the country. Although the Irish peasantry were armed mostly with pikes, they were able to overwhelm a number of small, isolated British outposts. However, even with the half-hearted assistance of the French, the Irish could not compete with the organized ranks of the British Army when under competent leadership.

    In a brutal turning of the tide, the Redcoats plowed through the rebels. In just three months, between 15, and 30, people died, most of them Irish. This book tells the story of this harsh, but fascinating, period of Irish history and covers the organization and uniforms of the forces involved. The Jacobite army bested another Hanoverian army at Falkirk and besieged Stirling, only to be routed by the Duke of Cumberland's army at Culloden in April , a crushing defeat that ended any prospect of a Stuart restoration.
