Osprey Military Journal Volume 4 - 2 : The Red Devils of Hikone

Richard Hayes looks at the two 'Cold War' National parks in the US, Minuteman National Park and Nike Missile Site. Hollywood has always been fascinated with the history of Piracy, as shown by films ranging from Captain Blood to the Muppet's Treasure Island; this article examines their varied fortunes. René Chartrand recreates the delicacies of a meal with the Milice de Chambly, an 18th-century re-enactment unit from Canada. 'The unfortunate Mack' was one of the unluckiest commanders of the Napoleonic wars; Ian Castle examines his record up until his unsuccessful defence of the fortress of Ulm. Battlefield Medicine covers the development of techniques throughout the medieval period, with a special emphasis on Templars, Teutonic Knights and Hospitallers, including a profile on the Founder of the Order of St John. The feature articles include the second part of Stephen Hart's study of German defensive doctrine on the Eastern Front in 1943 and Stephen Turnbull looks at the history and heraldry of the Red Devils of Hikone, a Japanese clan of the late 15th century. In 'Valour, wisdom, and experience': early Texas Rangers and the nature of frontier leadership, Stephen Hardin tells the story of those men who patrolled the frontier throughout the early days of Texan independence and Elizabeth von Aderkas sees how Royal Navy gunboat patrols enforced the law of the Empire on the Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest. Finally, Ian Castle reassesses the evidence for the battle of Dürnstein, the most significant encounter between the French and the Russians during the Allied retreat to Austerlitz following FML Mack's capitulation at Ulm in 1805.
