    pity because visually the magazine is first class Produced in a glossy forty pages packed with colour and black and white pics Many of the adds seem very familiar although the wording is somewhat confusing Having said that some of the Italian adds for models are absolutely mouthwatering The articles include a DBM scenario on the Battle of Cortenuova Gettysburg refought using Fire and Fury and Trebia 1799 fought with

    vessel was ever captured by an American vessel of equal force Obviously the US navy flush from recent victories heavily contested this claim and the American press undertook a campaign of defamation and debunking against the author This only drew great attention to James work in Britain where he quite rightly became recognised as the foremost of naval historians This collection is a reprint of the 1837 Edition and the

  • Warhammer
    people at Games Workshop have come rushing to my rescue with a range of volumes detailing just about everything you could want to know about the models in their ranges This particular book provided details of Lizardmen and supports the range of models reviewed last month in the Forum According to the author The Lizardmen are an ancient race created by the godlike beings known as the Old Ones to be the guardians of the Warhammer World The History of the Lizard races is excitingly recorded supported by black and white artwork and as always I cannot help but be impressed by the amount of detail that has been included in this created scenario Taking a familiar historical background the Toltec and Aztec empires of Central America the GW writer Anthony Reynolds has created a fascinating mythology and wargaming history There is a very useful section advising newcomers on building up their chosen army starting small and building up steadily and concentrating on areas that suit your style of play This section is gloriously illustrated in colour presenting the full range of models available with core units special figures like flying warriors mounted on Terradons and rare units such as

    the lines and the often strained relationship between the soldiers and those civilians who stayed on to keep their properties or to provide facilities for the army Harry was involved in four major actions The first was at Arras on 21 May 1916 when the 47th Division was on the receiving end of a 24 hour assault commencing with a gas and artillery attack and then followed up by a partially successful German Infantry attack Later that year he took part in the Battles of Flers Courcellette on 15th September and the assault on the Butte de Warlencourt on 7th October At Flers Courcellette Harry witnessed at first hand the progress the army had made since the first day of the Somme He watches tanks being brought to the front for their first ever battle Perhaps more importantly he sees artillery being used effectively as part of a well organised all arms battle He describes the short but furious bombardment of the enemy lines prior to the assault followed by a creeping barrage that worked Afterwards he watches aircraft communicating adjustments to artillery batteries beneath them a sure sign of things to come The 1 7th Londons took all three lines of enemy trenches as their objective and more generally the 10 assaulting divisions moved forward by around 2 miles By contrast Harry s next action on the Somme in October was a disaster A daylight attack without any planning or preparation in support of an attack which had already failed against well prepared positions on the Butte de Warlencourt resulted in carnage Lessons may have been learned after the opening days of the Somme offensive but this battle was a harsh reminder that things could still go very badly wrong Harry s final battle was at Messines Ridge in

    In fact Robert quite freely credits the work done by WRG in developing the primary and authoritative Ancient Army list Still these lists are not simply a rewriting to fit a new rule system they also include a solid core of personal research and interpretation undertaken from translations of primary sources The lists are therefore new and refreshing As I am not a particular expert on the ancient period I

    Treaty of Versailles The centre pages are as usual given over to full colour plates of the aircraft with some gaudy examples that will avoid the need to try to replicate the lozenge camouflage adopted by German aircraft in the latter stages of the conflict The text apart from a short section concerning the BMW and Mercedes engines concerns the pilots and their actions with this aircraft any person looking for technical details would be advised to seek alternative sources The main formations that flew this aircraft appear to be dealt with in numerical order with first hand accounts and thumbnail histories of the pilots involved Reading these accounts three things struck the reader the first being the short operational life of aircraft involved in the air war together with the incredibly short gestation period of new types compared with modern types The second is the predominance of the German aristocracy in their air arm and the third the use of parachutes by the German air arm all of which are out of the scope of the book The text can become repetitive as one gets further into the book Without wishing to appear disrespectful to those involved in this
