Osprey Military Journal Volume 3 - 5 : A Mamluk training manual
Chris Henry, the curator, takes on a tour around the newly opened Museum of Artillery at the Woolwich Arsenal in London. Stephen Hardin, author of Campaign 89 : The Alamo 1836 examines the battle of the Alamo and some of the famous characters that perished within those walls. He restores Colonel James Clinton Neill, the commander and 'a gentleman high in the esteem of his fellow citizens' who missed the last stand, to his rightful place in the history of the Texan Revolution. William Martin, author of Campaign 93: Verdun 1916, reassesses the military reputation of Marshall Petain and demonstrates that his thinking, had it been acted on, could have radically changed the course of events in western Europe in May 1940, laying 'the ghosts of Verdun'. Following on from Tony Clunn's search for Varus' lost legions in Issue 3.4, Martin Marix Evans argues the case for the most plausible location for a famous Roman victory, the defeat of Boudica and the quelling of the Britons' bloody uprising in AD 60. Keith Durham reviews the current state of knowledge of the Viking craft of shipbuilding based on quite recent archaeological finds in the fjords of Denmark and the reconstruction activity of Viking Longships by the Roskilde Museum. Dr David Nicolle draws on his research into mamluk training manuals to give insights into the fighting qualities and technical skills that made this fighting elite such redoubtable opponents to the Crusaders and Mongol opponents of the medieval Middle East. Finally Richard Hayes tells of the Hollywood Stars who ended up in the trenches in WWI, including such luminaries as Basil Rathbone and Humphrey Bogart.
