Italy's War of Liberation takes issue with the apparently prevalent attitude among Allied commanders during World War II that the Italian military was ineffective. O'Reilly recounts the little-known story of the significant contribution made by the Italian military during the Italian Campaign, including the contribution of relatively unacknowledged Italian Partisan formations that fought in Italy, France, Yugoslavia, and Greece. Despite the fact that Italians fought on the front lines with the British and American soldiers, and despite the service of the Italian Navy and Air Force, the Allies refused repeated Italian pleas for more involvement in combat. This book not only attempts to correct the record of military history by illustrating the ways in which the Italians were underutilized by the Allies, but it also serves to paint a fair portrait of the Italian military's substantial efforts to defeat Hitler and eradicate Fascism.

Adrian Greaves uses his exceptional knowledge of the Anglo-Zulu War to look beyond the two best known battles of Isandlwana and the iconic action at Rorkes Drift to other fiercely fought battles.He covers little recorded engagements and battles such as Nyezane which was fought on the same day as the slaughter of Imperial troops at Isandlwana but has been eclipsed by it. Like the battles at Hlobane and Gingindhlovu.The death of the Prince Imperial, which caused shock waves round Europe and had huge repercussions for those involved, is examined in detail. The defeat of the Zulu Army at Ulundi was the culmination of the war and the author reveals new and shocking details about this battle.There is a hint of ominous events to come in the slaughter of Colonel Austruthers Redcoat column by Boers as they marched from Ulundi to Pretoria. This was the opening salvo of the First Boer War.This hugely informative book will fascinate fans of this period of our Imperial history.

Forgotten Warrior-Forgotten Battles is an analytical history of the Thirteen American militias during the Revolutionary War. It is the companion work to In Defense of Hearth and Home which covers the colonial militias from 1607-1774. The work argues that the contributions of the militias in the Revolution were partly a result of their varied colonial experiences and their combat experience during the Revolution itself. The work argues that militia performance during the war was not random but predictable when certain contributing factors were accounted for. Forgotten Warriors stresses that the high variability in militia quality was a function of their varied colonial combat inheritance combined with their varied Revolutionary combat history. Forgotten Warriors argues that the militias and the Continental Army created a symbiotic relationship on the battlefield that in turn created a unique Center of Gravity that the English were never able to discern or attack, thus resulting in their eventual defeat. Forgotten Warriors builds on and completes the themes developed in In Defense of Hearth and Home. The two works should be considered as linked and a full understanding of the colonial and revolutionary militias can only be obtained by reading both. Both works analyze combat by reducing
