ROME SEIZES THE TRIDENT
by Marc G. DeSantis

The Defeat of Carthaginian Seapower and the Forging of the Roman Empire. The Punic Wars, especially the first, were characterized by massive naval battles. The Romans did not possess a navy of their own when war broke out between them and the Carthaginians in 264 B.C. Prior to that, the Romans had relied upon several South Italian Greek cities to provide ships to serve with the legions. The Romans used a captured galley as a model, and constructed hundreds of copies. They used this new navy to wrench maritime superiority from the Carthaginians, most notably at the Battle of Ecnomus.

ROMAN CONQUESTS: ASIA MINOR, SYRIA AND ARMENIA
by Richard Evans

While conquering Greece and Macedonia the Romans defeated an intervention by the Seleucid Empire. Soon Roman armies crossed to Asia where they faced the Seleucids, one of the most sophisticated armies of the ancient world, evolved from Alexander the Great's all-conquering war machine with the exotic additions of elephants, scythed chariots, heavily armoured cataphract cavalry and a formidable navy. The Romans defeated them at the epic battle of Magnesia in 190 BC, but this, allowed other states to come to the fore, most notably Pontus, led by Mithridates VI, and Armenia.

ROMAN CONQUESTS: NORTH AFRICA
by Nic Fields

The third in the Roman Conquests series briefly covers Rome's first forays into the dark continent during the First and Second Punic Wars, then covers in detail her vindictive final conquest and destruction of Carthage in the Third Punic War. The subsequent long wars against the slippery Numidian prince, Jugurtha, which tested the Roman military system to the limit, also occupy a central place. With a cast of characters including Hannibal, the Scipios, Marius, Sulla and the wily Jugurtha, the book clearly explains how the Romans coped with formidable new foes and the challenges of unfamiliar terrain and climate. Colour plates bring the main troop types vividly to life in meticulously-researched detail.

WARLORDS OF REPUBLICAN ROME: CAESAR VERSUS POMPEY
by Dr. Nic Fields

The war between Caesar and Pompey was one of the defining moments in Roman history. The clash between these great generals gripped the attention of their contemporaries and it has fascinated historians ever since. These powerful men were among the dominant personalities of their age, and their struggle for supremacy divided Rome. In this original and perceptive study Nic Fields explores the complex, often brutal world of Roman politics and the lethal rivalry of Caesar and Pompey that grew out of it.

IVAN THE TERRIBLE: A MILITARY HISTORY
by Alexander Filjushkin

Ivan was the first Russian ruler to invade Europe and his Campaigns against the Livonian Confederation were initially successful. In 1558, Russia occupied Dorpat and Narva, and laid siege to Reval. At the Battle of Ergema the Russians defeated the knights of the Livonian Order, fuelling Ivan's dreams of a Russian Empire. However, as Erik XIV of Sweden recaptured Reval, and the Poles joined forces with the Lithuannians, the war began to turn against Ivan. This new book describes the organisation and equipment of the Tsar's army and the forces of his enemies.

THE BATTLE OF ACTIUM 31 BC
by Lee Fratantuono

The Battle of Actium was possibly the most significant military engagement in Roman history. The naval forces of Octavian clashed with those of Antony and Cleopatra off the coast of western Greece. The victory Octavian enjoyed that day set the state for forty-four years of what would come to be known as the Augustan Peace, and was in no small way the dawn of the Roman Empire. Professor Lee Fratantuono presents a compelling and solidly documented account of what took place in the waters off the promontory of Leucas in late August and early September of 31 B.C.

HELLENISTIC AND ROMAN NAVAL WARS 336 - 31 BC
by John D. Grainger

The period covered in this book is well known for its epic battles and grand campaigns of territorial conquest, but Hellenistic monarchies, Carthaginians and the rapacious Roman Republic were scarcely less active at sea. Huge resources were poured into maintaining fleets not only as symbols of prestige but as means of projecting real military power across the Mediterranean arena. Taking the period between Alexander the Great's conquests and the Battle of Actium, John Grainger analyses the developments in naval technology and tactics, the uses and limitations of sea power and the differing strategies of the various powers.

ROMAN CONQUESTS: EGYPT AND JUDEA
by John D. Grainger

Egypt was the last of the Macedonian Successor states to be swallowed up by Roman expansion. Cleopatra’s famous love affair with Marc Antony ensured she was on the wrong side of the Roman civil war between him and Octavian (later to become Caesar Augustus). After the defeat of Antony and Cleopatra at the naval battle of Actium, Octavian swiftly brought Egypt under direct Roman control. Judaea was a constant source of trouble for the Romans and they were content to rule through client kings like the infamous Herod but were increasingly sucked in to direct military involvement to suppress religiously-inspired revolts.

THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR AT WAR 1120-1312
by Paul Hill

The Knights Templar were a the medieval military order which played a key role in the crusades against the Muslims in the Holy Land, the Iberian peninsula and elsewhere in Europe. The order was founded as a response to attacks on pilgrims in the Holy Land, and it was involved in countless battles and sieges, always at the forefront of crusading warfare. This absorbing study examines why they were such an important aspect of medieval warfare on the frontiers of Christendom for nearly two hundred years. Templar leadership, command and control are examined, and sections cover their battles and campaigns, fortifications and castles.

THE NORMAN COMMANDERS: MASTERS OF WARFARE 911-1135
by Paul Hill

Robert Guiscard, William the Conqueror, Roger I of Sicily and Bohemond Prince of Antioch are just four of the exceptional Norman commanders who not only led their armies to victory in battle but also, through military force, created their own kingdoms in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Their single-minded and aggressive leadership, and the organization, discipline and fighting qualities of their armies, marked them out from their Viking forebears and from many of the armed forces that stood against them. Their brilliant careers, and those of Robert Curthose, William Rufus, Richard I of Capua and Henry I of England, are the subject of this study of medieval warfare.
