" Siege Weapons of the Far East (1) AD 612-1300" von Turnbull, Stephan
New Vanguard 43 Author: Stephen Turnbull Illustrator: Wayne Reynolds The prevalence of particular fortress types in medieval China, Mongolia, Japan and Korea demanded the evolution of different modes of siege warfare in each country. The wealthy walled towns of China, the mountain fortresses of Korea and the military outposts of Japan each presented different challenges to besieging forces, and this book reveals the diversity of tactics that were developed to meet these challenges. Most of the Far Eastern weaponry of this period originated in China, but was adapted to fit the demands of siegecraft across the region and the individual strengths and weaknesses of each piece of machinery are studied here. Contents: - Introduction - Siege Warfare in the Far East AD 612 -1300 - Crossbow Siege Artillery - Catapult Siege Artillery - Incendiary Devices - Gas Bombs - Colour Plate Commentary - Index Osprey 48 pages, Paperback, 2001

"Fornovo 1495" von Nicolle, David
Campaign 43 Author: David Nicolle Illustrator: Richard Hook In the year 1495, Charles VIII was the youthful King of France, the most powerful state in medieval Europe. A dreamer who saw himself as the saviour of Christian Europe, he believed he could roll back the ever-spreading tide of Ottoman Turkish conquest. As a base for his crusade he was determined to seize southern Italy. In a lightning campaign he used France's modern army to sweep through Italy, his mobile field artillery train smashing into dust the tall towers of Italy's medieval castles. The Italian states rallied and at Fornovo their alliance, the League of Venice, fought Charles' army to a standstill.

"Hattin 1187" von Nicolle, David
Campaign 19 Author: David Nicolle In 1187, Christian Europe was shaken by events in the Middle East. This volume tells the story of those momentous months - the campaign leading to the Muslim capture of Jerusalem after the disastrous Crusader defeat at Hattin where, in a two day running battle on the waterless plateau between Saffuriya and Tiberias, beneath a burning sun, Saladin's troops destroyed the Christian army. The disaster at Hattin resulted in the collapse of the kingdom of Jerusalem and sparked off the Third Crusade under Richard I 'Coeur de Lion'. This book examines Hattin in detail and looks at the consequences of the battle.

"Yarmuk AD 636" von Nicolle, David
Campaign 31 Author: David Nicolle In 636 AD, after protracted skirmishing and minor engagements the Arab and Byzantine armies faced each other on the banks of the Yarmuk river. The Byzantines were initially successful; driving back the Arab right wing. Finally, though, the Arab counter-attacks broke the Byzantine lines and the subsequent pursuit became a rout. The awful fate of the fleeing Byzantine soldiers was remembered for several generations until it was recorded in early Islamic histories. David Nicolle not only looks at the battle itself but also the whole decisive Arab campaign - from the Muslim invasion of 633/4 to the fall of Byzantine Syria. Contents - Origins of the Campaign - The Opposing Leaders - The Opposing Armies - The Opposing Plans - The Campaign - Aftermath and Reckoning - The Battlefields Today - Chronology - A Guide to Further Reading - Wargaming Yarmuk Osprey 96 pages Paperback 1994
