Syed Ramsey Tools of War. History of Weapons in Medieval Times

The Medieval period of history was extremely violent. The quest for wealth and power was driven by the violent society of the European countries. Massive stone castles were built to act as power bases. Lands were subject to invasion leading to wars, battles and siege situations. This was the period of the Norman conquest and the battle of Hastings in England. Warfare, siege warfare and weapons strategy and tactics where subject to change due to new weapons ideas and changes in Medieval technology and architecture. The fighting in Europe had a brief respite when the attentions of the Medieval warlords turned their attention to the Holy Land when the Medieval Weapons were used by the religious knights who fought in the Crusades. This book has been written keeping in view the requirements of undergraduate and postgraduate students and research scholars in the area of weapons and warfare and Military history.

Syed Ramsey Tools of War. History of Weapons in Modern Times

A weapon, arm, or armament is any device used with intent to inflict damage or harm to living beings, structures, or systems. Weapons are used to increase the efficacy and efficiency of activities such as crime, law enforcement, self-defense, and warfare. In a broader context, weapons may be construed to include anything used to gain a strategic, material or mental advantage over an adversary. While just about any ordinary objects such as sticks, stones, cars, or pencils can be used as weapons, many are expressly designed for the purpose - ranging from simple implements such as clubs, swords and guns, and to complicated modern intercontinental ballistic missiles, biological and cyber weapons. This book has been written keeping in view the requirements of undergraduate and postgraduate students and research scholars in the area of weapons and warfare and Military history.

Syed Ramsey Tools of War. History of Weapons in Early Modern Times

Warfare of the early modern period is associated with the start of the widespread use of gunpowder and the development of suitable weapons to use the explosive, including artillery and handguns; for this reason the era is also referred to as the age of gunpowder warfare (a concept introduced by Michael Roberts in the 1950s). Shock weapons that extend or enhance the deadly force of the humans at close contact. These would include: clubs, axes, tomahawks, knives, swords, sabres, spears, halberds, and pikes. The most important surviving shock weapon today is the bayonet, although some might say it is a shovel doing double duty. Missile weapons that are hurled or projected over various distances to inflict destruction upon the enemy: slingshots, boomerangs, javelins, bows and arrows, crossbows, ballistas, catapults, and Greek fire. This book has been written keeping in view the requirements of undergraduate and postgraduate students and research scholars in the area of weapons and warfare and Military history.

Smith Chris The Lord of the Rings. Weapons and Warfare

As The Lord of the Rings draws to a triumphant and spectacular conclusion with The Return of the King, pitching armies of Men and their allies against the evil forces of darkness, this new book reconstructs the history and events surrounding the epic battles in Peter Jackson's awesome film trilogy. Treating the filmmakers' notes, designs and props as a true archive, The Lord of the Rings: Weapons and Warfare uses these records to present a full historical account of the War of the Ring. It assembles all the background information to outline the story behind each battle and examine the strategy used by the opposing forces. Each of the major conflicts depicted in the films - from The Last Alliance of Elves and Men to the climactic Battle of the Pelennor Fields - is illustrated with a unique diagram by the films' designers that reveals how each battle was fought. Lavishly illustrated with 1,000 photos, paintings, maps, sculptures and sketches, most appearing here for the first time, Weapons and Warfare is an indispensable chronicle of The Lord of the Rings' many creatures, warriors, armies and battlegrounds. From the graceful and proficient Elven soldiers to the horrendous war machines of the Dark Lord, each culture's approach to combat is explained - how they fought, why they were fighting, what armor they wore and what weapons they used against their enemies. Now you can get as close to a marauding Orc as you could ever wish, without suffering the consequences! Armed with a wealth of fascinating facts and unique imagery, and with an exclusive foreword by Christopher Lee and an introduction by the Academy Award winner Richard Taylor, Weapons and Warfare promises to be the most striking companion to The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy ever published.

They can be swift, silent, and deadly. That's why armed guerrillas are feared by even the largest, best-equipped fighting forces. No tank, rocket-propelled grenade, or infantry battalion can match the guerrilla team's ability to exact brutality with precision, instill fear in enemy hearts, and viciously deflate morale. From the snows of Korea to the jungles of Southeast Asia to the mountains of Afghanistan, the U.S. Army has employed guerrilla tactics to deadly effect. Those tactics and techniques, being used today by U.S. soldiers, are laid out in the U.S. Army Guerrilla Warfare Handbook.Employing small, heavily-armed, and well-oiled fire teams, guerrilla warfare has played an invaluable role in the success of nearly every U.S. campaign for decades. Here, its methods are detailed: raids and ambushes, demolition, counterintelligence, mining and sniping, psychological warfare, communications, and much more. This is an inside look at the guerrilla strategies and weapons that have come to be feared by enemies and respected by allies. Not another outside perspective or commentary on unconventional warfare, this is the original-of use to soldiers in the field and to anyone with an interest in military tactics.

Walter Todd Stormtrooper Weapons and Tactics

The horrors of modern, trench warfare confronted all the countries fighting in World Wat I. This left indelible images on each country's military forces. The Allies turned toward a mechanized solution to solve the problems and dangers of "No Man's Land," the tank. The Central Power's military commanders in Germany turned to new infantry weapons, new tactics, and command authority to face the difficulties presented by the deadliness of trench warfare to bring maneuver back to the battlefield. Ideas of heavy firepower (light automatic weapons, hand grenades, mortars, and flamethrowers) being placed in the hands of small squads of troops, and with greater authority of command given to their lieutenants and non-commissioned officers at the point-of-attack led to greater capabilities in their specially trained assault forces, known as Stormtroopers. These specialized troops proved effecting in deeper penetration of the Allied defenses on the Western front, but still proved unable to complete their final objective of reaching Paris in 1918. Nevertheless, these Stormtrooper tactics evolved into the current infantry fire team concepts being utilized today in most modern nations' armies.

Brendan Gillespie World War I in the Middle East. How the Allied campaigns in the Sinai and Palestine rebuked the popular definitions of World War I era warfare

Document from the year 2016 in the subject History Europe - Other Countries - Ages of World Wars, grade: A, The Ohio State University, language: English, abstract: World War I is most often explained in the context of how it was the terminal turning point in how warfare was waged, namely that World War I was when the weapons of industrial powers outpaced the type of head-on collision of massive numbers of men that had been the preemptive military strategy for millennia. This paper does not attempt to dispute this argument, instead it argues that while World War I was undoubtedly "a war that changed war", there was a campaign waged between major powers in World War I that can be deemed "traditional" in the sense that men and their actions decided the fate and outcome, versus the manufactured warfare fought elsewhere, especially the western front in Europe. This campaign was the war waged in the Middle East between the British and the Ottoman Turks over the contested territory of Palestine, which may well have been one of the last "traditional" campaigns fought on this Earth.By using primary sources from World War I and more contemporary material, this paper will compare how drastically different the Palestine campaign was compared to how people view World War I in popular memory. World War I often gets "squeezed" into an easy definition that can explain a truly "world" war. It is important for historians, students of history, and everyda...

Burden sharing is back. Indeed many observers of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Alliance would claim that it never went away. This is because, from its inception in 1949, NATO has never been an alliance of equals. The United States has always made the overwhelmingly larger contribution, not only for the defense of Europe under Article 5 of the NATO Treaty, but also in the numerous operations that the Alliance has carried out beyond Europe since the end of the Cold War. At one stage in the late-1950s, the United States had nearly 400,000 troops and 7,000 nuclear weapons deployed in Western Europe. It also maintained large stocks of pre-positioned equipment and sent thousands of more troops back to Europe every year for reinforcement and exercises.

Marjorie Curry Woods Classroom Commentaries. Teaching the Poetria nova across Medieval and Renaissance Europe

With an unusually broad scope encompassing how Europeans taught and learned reading and writing at all levels, Classroom Commentaries: Teaching the Poetria Nova across Medieval and Renaissance Europe provides a synoptic picture of medieval and early modern instruction in rhetoric, poetics, and composition theory and practice. As Marjorie Curry Woods convincingly argues, the decision of Geoffrey of Vinsauf (fl. 1200) to write his rhetorical treatise in verse resulted in a unique combination of rhetorical doctrine, poetic examples, and creative exercises that proved malleable enough to inspire teachers for three centuries. Based on decades of research, this book excerpts, translates, and analyzes teachers' notes and commentaries in the more than two hundred extant manuscripts of the text. We learn the reasons for the popularity of the Poetria nova among medieval and early Renaissance teachers, how prose as well as verse genres were taught, why the Poetria nova was a required text in central European universities, its attractions for early modern scholars and historians, and how we might still learn from it today. Woods' monumental achievement will allow modern scholars to see the Poetria nova as earlier Europeans did: a witty and perennially popular text central to the experience of almost every student.

David Heilbron Price Don.t Brexit, Fix it.

UK's June 2016 Brexit Referendum shocked politicians. They did not expect this Continental-wide crisis. Why? Over the years politicians have abused Europe's unique experiment in Democracy. The innovative plan of Robert Schuman, French Foreign Minister, brought an end to age-long warfare. Europe is now living in the longest period of peace in more than 2000 years. It brought unprecedented prosperity. Now Europe is in a crisis of trust. It economics is in confusion. Instead of splitting Europe, the book reveals that this crisis will force politicians to reform and correct the abuse and corruption that began with France's General de Gaulle. Instead of today's secretive and closed Councils and Committees, politicians will be obliged to open them. This could lead to an new Age of Prosperity for Europe. This eye-opening book is based on decades of research from a journalist based in Brussels and biographer of Robert Schuman. It is an essential guide to Europe's rich and satisfying future.

Mary Manjikian, Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College Confidence-Building In Cyberspace. A Comparison of Territorial and Weapons-Based Regimes

The term "confidence-building measures" is not new. The idea that international actors can come together to share information about their activities in order to establish trust, prevent misunderstandings and misperceptions and de-escalate conflicts is one that has a long pedigree. The development of confidence- building measures in the areas of biological and chemical warfare date back to the beginning of the 20th century. Confidence-building measures aimed at de-escalating conflicts along the Indo-Pakistan border date back to the 1970s. But what do these diverse events have to offer us as lessons as we think about confidence-building measures in cyberspace? Dr. Mary Manjikian's insightful analysis suggests that both territorially based and weapons-based confidence-building measures can provide models for the ways in which states can learn to cooperate and share information in regard to cyberspace and cyber weapons.

Pape Thomas, Wundram Manfred, Marton Paolo Andrea Palladio. 1508 - 1580. Architect between the Renaissance and Baroque

No other architect in the history of Western art has had an influence so spontaneous and yet so enduring as Andrea Palladio. Palladianism broke through all cultural stylistic barriers. It spread not only throughout the Neo-Latin nations but held Germany, the Netherlands, Scandinavia and the countries of Eastern Europe in its sway and formed the lineaments of English architecture of the 17th and 18th centuries. Palladio lived in an age which was extremely exciting for the historical development of architecture and his work was an important factor in the evolution from Renaissance to Baroque. This volume offers a thorough introduction to the architecture of Palladio and includes all works which researchers have attributed to him.

From the earliest days of aviation where the pilot would drop simple bombs by hand, to the highly agile, stealthy aircraft of today that can deliver smart ordnance with extreme accuracy, engineers have striven to develop the capability to deliver weapons against targets reliably, safely and with precision. Aircraft Systems Integration of Air-Launched Weapons introduces the various aspects of weapons integration, primarily from the aircraft systems integration viewpoint, but also considers key parts of the weapon and the desired interactions with the aircraft required for successful target engagement. Key features: Addresses the broad range of subjects that relate directly to the systems integration of air-launched weapons with aircraft, such as the integration process, system and subsystem architectures, the essential contribution that open, international standards have on improving interoperability and reducing integration costs and timescales Describes the recent history of how industry and bodies such as NATO have driven the need for greater interoperability between weapons and aircraft and worked to reduce the cost and timescales associated with the systems integration of complex air-launched weapons with aircraft Explores future initiatives and technologies relating to the reduction of systems integration costs and timescales The systems integration of air-launched weapons with aircraft requires a multi-disciplinary set of engineering capabilities. As a typical weapons integration life-cycle spans several years, new engineers have to learn the skills required by on-the-job training and working with experienced weapons integrators. Aircraft Systems Integration of Air-Launched Weapons augments hands-on experience, thereby enabling the development of subject matter expertise more quickly and in a broader context than would be achieved by working through the life-cycle on one specific project. This book also serves as a useful revision source for experienced engineers in the field.

Edward Stanley Before and After Waterloo. Observations on the Napoleonic Era in Continental Europe Before . After Its Principal Conflicts

Views of Europe during the Napoleonic AgeThe last years of the 18th Century and the first years of the nineteenth century were typified by revolution and warfare. Europe was torn apart by conflict as the hereditary rulers of the Continent fought to defeat first Revolutionary, then Consulate and finally the Imperial France of Napoleon Bonaparte. The authors of the letters which comprise this book were distinctive in that as educated and well placed English people they travelled to the Continent during or after its most turbulent or significant events. Their correspondence, written from the Continent after the Peace of Amiens of 1802-03, after the Peace of Paris of 1814 and after the conflict at Waterloo in Belgium, has left posterity a collection of impressions and insights into the effects of these great times on the nations, cities, towns and people of Europe from a British perspective. Stanley's examination of the field of battle at Waterloo is often quoted and his water colour paintings (reproduced here in monochrome) are often utilised as illustrations of the battle's main locations. Available in softcover and hardcover with dust jacket.

Dr. M N Sirohi Understanding Network Centric Warfare

Network-centric warfare, is a military doctrine or theory of war pioneered by the United States Department of Defence in the 1990s. Network society is the expression coined in 1981 related to the social, political, economic and cultural changes caused by the spread of networked, digital information and communications technologies. The intellectual origins of the idea can be traced back to the work of early social theorists such as Georg Simmel who analyzed the effect of modernization and industrial capitalism on complex patterns of affiliation, organization, production and experience. Network centric warfare can trace its immediate origins to 1996 when Admiral William Owens introduced the concept of a 'system of systems' in a paper of the same name published by the Institute National Security Studies. Owens described the serendipitous evolution of a system of intelligence sensors, command and control systems, and precision weapons that enabled enhanced situational awareness, rapid target assessment, and distributed weapon assignment. The publication will be a valuable aid to the study of the vital aspects of the subject.

Space warfare is combat that takes place in outer space, i.e.outside the atmosphere. Technically, as a distinct classification,it refers to battles where the targets themselves are in space. Spacewarfare therefore includes ground-to-space warfare, such as attackingsatellites from the Earth, as well as space-to-space warfare, such assatellites attacking satellites. In 2020 military satellites and, to alesser degree, commercial satellites that perform functions criticalto civilians, governments and militaries are now increasinglycapable of performing active and passive defence, offensiveinterdiction and rendezvous operations, and covert and overtattacks, while simultaneously carrying out their primary missions.Space systems consist of three elements: a space element, aterrestrial element, and a link element.

Proxy wars represent a perennial strand in the history of conflict. The appeal of ‘warfare on the cheap’ has proved an irresistible strategic allure for nations through the centuries. However, proxy wars remain a missing link in contemporary war and security studies. In this timely book Andrew Mumford sheds new light on the dynamics and lineage of proxy warfare from the Cold War to the War on Terror, whilst developing a cogent conceptual framework to explain their appeal. Tracing the political and strategic development of proxy wars throughout the last century, they emerge as a dominant characteristic of contemporary conflict. The book ably shows how proxy interventions often prolong existing conflicts given the perpetuity of arms, money and sometimes proxy fighters sponsored by third party donors. Furthermore, it emphasizes why, given the direction of the War on Terror, the rise of China as a global power, and the prominence now achieved by non-state actors in the ‘Arab Spring’, the phenomenon of proxy warfare is increasingly relevant to understandings of contemporary security. Proxy Warfare is an indispensable guide for students and scholars interested in the evolution and potential future direction of war and conflict in the modern world.

Financing National Defense. Policy and Process

A volume in Research in Public ManagementSeries Editor: Lawrence R. Jones, Naval Postgraduate SchoolA myth from the colonial period was that Americans could defend themselves by keeping a rifle inthe closet and when needed, grab it, and march off to battle in times of crisis. Unfortunately,providing national defense is more complicated that that; indeed it was more complicated evenduring the Revolutionary war. General George Washington's struggles to form a standing armysupported by workable logistics and supply processes and to get funding for both from theRevolutionary Congress are well documented. Financing national defense requires planning andresourcing in advance. Reacting at the instant of crisis is too late. Building an educated, highlytrained and capable Armed Forces and the acquisition of defense weapons and weapons systems haslong lead times and involves making decisions the consequences of which are likely to last for decades. These decisions include how torecruit and retain military and civilian personnel as well as designing, buying and fielding a vast array of ground weapons, ships,aircraft and other weaponry. A decision to buy a major defense weapons system for example sets in motion a chain of other decisionsthat will affect the U.S., its allies and enemies around the world. Implementation of such decisions is financed through the U.S. federalgovernment and Department of Defense budget processes in a planned yet highly and pluralistic and disaggregated sy...

F. L. Taylor The Art of War in Italy, 1494-1529. the Transition From Mediaeval to Modern Warfare During the Renaissance

The birth of 'New War' in ItalyIt is easy to consider the Renaissance as a time of enlightenment typified principally by the artistic and scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci and his peers; but giant leaps forward are never confined to one aspect of society and the application of new ideas is always adapted to various purposes and the meeting of differing objectives. The creation of modern political science by Niccolo Machiavelli is a prime example of how new ways of thinking and doing impacted on the advancement and securing of power. These changes were inevitably accompanied by significant developments in making war more effectively, strategically and tactically-with corresponding advances in weaponry and other equipage. This excellent book considers these developments through the changes to traditional military strategy and the use of infantry, cavalry and artillery, in both open battle and fortification and siege-craft, at the turn of the sixteenth century.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

Oswald Mosley Europe. Faith and Plan Oswald Mosley Europe. Faith and Plan Новинка

Oswald Mosley Europe. Faith and Plan

Oswald Mosley was the first post-War figure to propose the political union of Europe. As far back as 1947 he had advocated ‘Europe a Nation’ and by the publication of this book in 1958 the first tentative steps had been made towards a European Economic Community (EEC).Mosley’s concept involved a common policy for defence, foreign affairs and economic policy that left all other issues to regional governments to decide in accord with local custom and tradition. It was also firmly based on making Europe, and Europe Overseas, a completely self-sufficient power bloc containing all its own raw materials, energy sources, food production, manufacturing capacity and consumer market.In ‘Europe: Faith and Plan’ Mosley explains that this would allow a United Europe to withdraw from global markets where the exploitation of cheap Third World labour was undercutting home-based production. This pernicious process was already destroying major European industries promising mass unemployment in the future.Even by the time this book was published it was clear that the Europe being created by old-party politicians and bureaucrats of the EEC was not Mosley’s Europe. They saw it as a step towards even greater exposure to global trade in which finance capitalism would be all-powerful.In ‘Europe: Faith and Plan’ Mosley shows how the economic and financial chaos he predicted could be avoided. The book remains an invaluable guide for the reconstruction of European economies in the 21st. century.

Featuring twenty one newly-commissioned essays, A Companion to the Global Renaissance: English Literature and Culture in the Era of Expansion demonstrates how today's globalization is the result of a complex and lengthy historical process that had its roots in England's mercantile and cross-cultural interactions of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. An innovative collection that interrogates the global paradigm of our period and offers a new history of globalization by exploring its influences on English culture and literature of the early modern period. Moves beyond traditional notions of Renaissance history mainly as a revival of antiquity and presents a new perspective on England's mercantile and cross-cultural interactions with the New and Old Worlds of the Americas, Africa, and the East, as well with Northern Europe. Illustrates how twentieth-century globalization was the result of a lengthy and complex historical process linked to the emergence of capitalism and colonialism Explores vital topics such as East-West relations and Islam; visual representations of cultural 'others'; gender and race struggles within the new economies and cultures; global drama on the cosmopolitan English stage, and many more

In this brilliant and widely acclaimed work, Peter Burke presents a social and cultural history of the Italian Renaissance. He discusses the social and political institutions which existed in Italy during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and analyses the ways of thinking and seeing which characterized this period of extraordinary artistic creativity. Developing a distinctive sociological approach, Peter Burke is concerned with not only the finished works of Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci and others, but also with the social background, patterns of recruitment and means of subsistence of this ‘cultural elite’. New to this edition is a fully revised introduction focusing on what Burke terms ‘the domestic turn’ in Renaissance studies and discussing the relation of the Renaissance to global trends. He thus makes a major contribution to our understanding of the Italian Renaissance, and to our comprehension of the complex relations between culture and society. This thoroughly revised and updated third edition is richly illustrated throughout. It will have a wide appeal among historians, sociologists and anyone interested in one of the most creative periods of European history.

Edward S. Creasy The Crescent in the West. the Invasions of Europe by the Ottoman Turkish Empire, 1250-1699

Centuries of warfare in Europe between the western and eastern worldsIt is difficult for many contemporary readers to imagine a time when the European and Christian world was constantly at threat from the huge invading armies of the East and the Islamic world. In 732 AD the Umayyad Moors were defeated in battle between Poitiers and Tours just 12 miles from Paris. However, the principal incursions of the ensuing 800 years came from the Ottoman Turkish empire, which fought to establish its grip on Europe well into the 18th century. For example, Eugene of Savoy, Marlborough's famous military ally, first fought in those wars. This book, taken from Creasy's more expansive work on the history of the Ottoman Empire, concentrates on the period from the first invasions of Europe by the Turks, to the period of imperial stagnation and the slow decline of Ottoman power. Within this pages are accounts of the sieges of Constantinople and the fall of Byzantium, the sieges of Vienna, the fall of Rhodes and the resistance of Malta, the Battle of Lepanto and the many other battles and conflicts fought across eastern Europe by the Austrians, Hungarians, Poles, Serbs and others in order to hold the advancing crescent banner at bay. This is a fascinating account of the collision between the cultures and faiths of east and west that has been all but forgotten by those who were not on its perennial front line.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available...

Alfred Toppe, Combat Studies Institute Desert Warfare. German Experiences in World War II

Firs published in 1991. "Desert Warfare: German Experiences in World War II" is an abridgment of a two-volume work that first appeared in 1952. Organized by Major General Alfred Toppe and written with the assistance of nine German commanders who served in North Africa, the manuscript represents a collaborative attempt to determine as many factors as possible which exerted a determining influence on desert warfare. Issues addressed include planning, intelligence, logistics, and operations. Described and analyzed are the German order of battle, the major military engagements in North Africa, and the particular problems of terrain and climate in desert operations. Not unlike many of the U.S. units engaged in the war with Iraq, the Germans in North Africa learned about combat operations in the desert only after they arrived on the scene and confronted the desert on its own terms. For this reason alone, as well as for the insights it offers, Desert Warfare requires the serious consideration of those responsible for preparing the U.S. military for any future conflict in desert terrain.

A History of the Laws of War: Volume 1

This unique new work of reference traces the origins of the modern laws of warfare from the earliest times to the present day. Relying on written records from as far back as 2400 BC, and using sources ranging from the Bible to Security Council Resolutions, the author pieces together the history of a subject which is almost as old as civilisation itself. The author shows that as long as humanity has been waging wars it has also been trying to find ways of legitimising different forms of combatants and ascribing rules to them, protecting civilians who are either inadvertently or intentionally caught up between them, and controlling the use of particular classes of weapons that may be used in times of conflict. Thus it is that this work is divided into three substantial parts: volume 1 on the laws affecting combatants and captives; volume 2 on civilians; and volume 3 on the law of arms control. As a work of reference this set of three books is unrivalled, and will be of immense benefit to scholars and practitioners researching and advising on the laws of warfare. It also tells a story which throws fascinating new light on the history of international law and on the history of warfare itself.
