SWEET WILLIAM OR THE BUTCHER?
by Jonathan Oates

The Duke of Cumberland and the '45. 'Butcher' Cumberland is portrayed as one of the arch villains of British history. His leading role in the bloody defeat of the Jacobite rebellion in 1745 and his ruthless pursuit of Bonnie Prince Charlie's fugitive supporters across the Scottish Highlands has generated a reputation for severity which has endured until the present day. The author looks dispassionately at Cumberland's character and his record as a soldier.

SIR JOHN HAWKWOOD: CHIVALRY AND THE ART OF WAR
by Stephen Cooper

In Florence cathedral hangs a remarkable portrait by Uccello of Sir John Hawkwood, the English soldier of fortune who commanded the Florentine army at the age of 70 and earned a formidable reputation as one of the foremost mercenaries of the late middle ages. He rose from modest beginnings in an Essex village, fought through the French campaigns of Edward III, went to Italy when he was 40 and played a leading role in ceaseless strife of the city-states that dominated that country. His success over so many years in such a brutal and uncertain age was founded on his exceptional skill as a soldier and commander.

THE REAL FALSTAFF
by Stephen Cooper

Sir John Fasolf and the Hundred Years War. Sir John was one of the most famous English knights and military commanders of the Hundred Years War, and is commonly thought to be a model for Sir John Falstaff, one of Shakespeare s greatest characters. Most of Fastolf's life was spent fighting the French, and he lived long enough to witness both the triumphs of Henry V, and the disasters of the 1450s. The author retraces the entire course of Fastolf's long life, concentrating on his many campaigns. A vivid picture of the old soldier emerges and of the French wars in which he played such a prominent part.

JOHN TALBOT & THE WAR IN FRANCE, 1427-1453
by A. J. Pollard

John Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury was the last of the celebrated English commanders of the Hundred Years' War. In his lifetime his reputation for audacity and courage gave him an unrivalled fame among the English, and he was feared and admired by the French. This perceptive account reconstructs the long career of this extraordinary soldier and offers a fascinating insight into warfare in the late medieval period. Talbot's defeat and death at the Battle of Castillon on 17 July 1453 marked the end of the wars. It was also the final act in a heroic but savage tradition.

WELLINGTON AGAINST MASSENA
by David Buttery

The third invasion of Portugal, 1810-1811. Wellington's clash with Massena was one of the most remarkable contests between two commanders in the Peninsular War. Their campaign of manoeuvre, battle and attrition across Spain and Portugal in 1810 and 1811 had a decisive impact on the outcome of the war. Wellington's reputation was enhanced, and Massena's was ruined. Using a variety of sources, in particular eyewitness accounts from both sides, the author reassesses the famous confrontations at Ciudad Rodrigo, Almeida, Busaco, the lines of Torres Vedras and the final battle at Fuentes de Onoro.

THE LIFE OF SIR JOHN MOORE: NOT A DRUM WAS HEARD
by Roger Day

A fresh biography of a legendary military figure. Sir John Moore is best remembered, indeed was immortalised, by the poem by Charles Wolfe, the first line of which provides the title for this book. Day sets the historical background of the Peninsula War with admirable clarity and shows why the British Army owes so much to this remarkable man who died so tragically at the age of only 48, after conducting the remarkable retreat from Corunna.
