To compliment this month’s cover feature on the Battle of Culloden, we have five copies of Culloden 1746: Battlefield Guide for you to win. Stuart Reid’s book is both a historical retelling of the events leading up to and including the battle, as well as a guide to finding your way around the battle site now. In the third edition, it’s a pocket-sized book that makes it easy to refer to as you tramp around the moors outside Inverness.
We have five copies to give away.
The Sieges of Ciudad Rodrigo 1810 and 1812
This fine production by Tim Saunders takes you back to the time of the Peninsular War and the fight over the border fortresses. Firstly, they were captured by Napoleon’s troops, then, as Napoleon’s attention turned elsewhere, they were taken back in lightning strikes by the Duke of Wellington. With plentiful maps, illustrations and modern photographs, this is a superb look at a key stage in the seven year war.
You can win one of three copies.
The Badges of Kitchener’s Army
An outstanding reference volume here from David Bilton, who will be writing a feature on just this topic in an upcoming issue of The Armourer. It’s a comprehensive guide to the battalion, brigade and division signs of the 30 divisions of volunteers that were raised when Lord Kitchener issued his call to arms. With full colour, high quality pages throughout, packed with colour badges and period photos, this is a must-have book for all WWI enthusiasts.
We have two copies up for grabs.
