The Art of War in the Middle Ages A.D. 378-1515 (Illustrated) By C.W.C. Oman
eBook (ePub): $1.99
“At no time was this interpenetration more complete than in the age which forms the central part of our period. Feudalism, in its origin and development, had a military as well as a social... More > side, and its decline is by no means unaffected by military considerations. There is a point of view from which its history could be described as ‘the rise, supremacy, and decline of heavy cavalry as the chief power in war.’ To a certain extent the tracing out of this thesis will form the subject of our researches. It is here that we find the thread which links the history of the military art in the middle ages into a connected whole. Between Adrianople, the first, and Marignano, the last, of the triumphs of the mediæval horseman, lie the chapters in the scientific history of war which we are about to investigate.”< Less

Paperback: $14.96

The ideas of military transformation have been percolating within the U.S. military for more than a decade. Proponents of both “net-centric” and “fourth-generation” warfare... More > have been arguing for specific force constructs to meet what they perceive to be the unique demands of a new type of war. The heavy demands of current operations add to the pressure to bring some kind of closure to this debate. In this Letort Paper, Major Raymond Kimball, a veteran of both peacekeeping operations and high-intensity warfare, examines the case of the Red Army, which attempted similar military transformation under fire during the Russian Civil War. He argues that many of what were intended to be temporary fixes became permanent and defining institutions of the force, and a myopic fixation on one type of enemy had disastrous results when fighting a very different foe. He cautions against similar errors perhaps pending in our own transformational processes.< Less

The Caspian Sea Monster, also known as the "Kaspian Monster", was an experimental ground effect vehicle (or ekranoplan)—a craft that flies, but stays close to the ground so it can... More > rely on the ground effect. It was developed at the design bureau of Rostislav Alexeyev. The Caspian Sea Monster was designed in 1964 – 1965, and was unique in size and payload. The ekranoplan had the length of the wingspan between 37.6 meters to 92 meters, and the maximum take-off weight is 544 tons. KM was designed as a special vehicle for the military and rescue teams. However designing such a machine caused serious difficulties. The KM was tested at the Caspian Sea for 15 years until 1980. In 1980, pilot error caused a crash without human casualties. The vehicle was too heavy to recover from its watery wreck site. This calendar presents the unique shape as the keepsake for military fans in the holiday season and brand new year.< Less

eBook (ePub): $8.99
The United States is under attack. Cyber-attack and cyber-espionage traced backed to China have been dramatically increasing every year. What kind of damage is being done? How is our national... More > security being compromised? The Office of the Secretary of Defense in their 2010 annual report to Congress, which was the "Military and Security Developments Involving the People's Republic of China [PRC]"; outlined this challenge: "The PRC utilizes a large well-organized network of enterprises, defense factories and affiliated research institutes and computer network operations to facilitate the collection of sensitive information and export-controlled technology." The heavy use of outsourcing of computer and consumer electronic production to China, not only by American but also by Japanese, Taiwanese, German, and South Korean firms, has helped create a Chinese cyber threat that now compromises the security of the Western world.< Less

Miriam’s Family Blitz, already broadly conceived in, Miriam’s War by the same author, places her family’s first fifteen days of the London Blitz under a magnifying glass. A period in which the mundane lives of her close family and friends in the East End found themselves experiencing front-line warfare for the first time, undergoing the inconvenient blackout, general restrictions and rationing. From the family’s once relatively quiet life, and with Miriam, released from Holloway prison only one year previously, the intense and very real fear of invasion, gassing, destruction and death occupies almost their every thought.< Less
