Osprey Military Journal Volume 3 - 6 : Hail Caesar! We who are about to die salute thee

A nautical issue which includes two features on the ports and navies of the Napoleonic Wars, the first, by David Gore, examines the career of one of the periods great seamen, Edward Pellew. The second looks at the Napoleonic development of the port of Antwerp. Following his domination of most of Europe, Napoleon turned his eyes towards Great Britain, however, the 'Wooden Walls' of the Royal Navy kept him at bay. Ronald Pawly examines how Napoleon developed the port of Antwerp as his pre-eminent naval base against the English fleet. To coincide with the recent publication of New Vanguard 41 : Confederate Ironclad 1861-65 Angus Konstam looks at the career of the CSS Arkansas. How it was built on the River Yazoo, sailed straight through the might of the Union see-going fleet and bravely came to the defence of the beleaguered city of Vicksburg. Between 1942 and 1944 The Royal Navy and the RAF undertook a little-known strategic bombing campaign against occupied Europe and the German heartlands. This operation, codenamed Operation Outward, involved the use of over 100,000 incendiary balloons floating over the continent, Charles Stephenson examines this obscure offensive effort. Also from World War II, Gordon Williamson traces the development of the U-Boat war badge, the military decoration of the German U-Boat flotilla. Away from nautical subjects, William Shepherd takes us on a tour of New Orleans' most famous museums, the D-Day Museum and the Museum of the Confederacy. Stephen Wisdom gives a brief survey of the circumstances of life and death for the Gladiators of Imperial Rome and, finally, Stephen Turnbull assesses the various methods used by Samurai commanders to direct and control their troops on the battlefield.
