OSPREY NEW VANGUARD 179:
       SPECIAL OPERATIONS PATROL VEHICLES, AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ

by Leigh Neville. Illustrated by Richard Chasemore

Patrol vehicles used by Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan and Iraq vary quite dramatically between the theatres as well as amongst the Coalition members, and have been developed and upgraded to meet the demands of the deployment. Covering all the major Coalition nations, this book looks at the elite forces deployed in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. From the mine-protected vehicles used to counter the IED threat in Iraq, the use of Strykers as armoured raiding platforms by the US Rangers, to the civilian vehicles adapted for military service by both Coalition troops and Private Military Contractors in the regions, this book uses rare in-theatre photographs and colour artwork to show the variety and inventiveness of the patrol vehicles being used.

New in card cover -  A4 format, 48pp, numerous colour & b/w photos,

THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR VOLUME 2:
                              IRAN STRIKES BACK, JUNE 1982-DECEMBER 1986

by E. R. Hooton & Tom Cooper

The  Iran-Iraq War was one of the bloodiest conflicts of the 20th century and accidentally created Islamic fundamentalist terrorism. There have been many books on the conflict, but this is the first detailed military history using materials from both sides, as well as materials obtained from US intelligence and British governmental archives. It provides a unique insight into a war which began through miscalculation and rapidly escalated into the longest conventional conflict in the post-WWII era. Volume 2 takes up the account after Iraq withdrew from Khuzestan and is based upon material from both sides: US intelligence data, British Government documents and secret Iraqi files. Iraq’s withdrawal exposed the great southern city of Basra to Iranian attack, but it was shielded by fortifications based upon a huge anti-tank ditch which the Iranians tried to storm in the summer of 1982.

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.
