Volume 6, Number 4 (#24) Deathride: Mars-la-Tour 1870

With breech-loading rifles and artillery all around, and the first "machine guns" in mass operation, the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 had a very modern feel about it...but still there were vestiges of the old ways, especially at Mars-la-Tour, where both sides made powerful, desperate, and bloodily successful cavalry charges...."Deathrides" to the men within them...

Volume 7, Number 1 (#25) Storm Over Taierzhuang

It sounds very familiar. An Axis army launches an offensive to take a key city. Except, the defenders have set up an elaborate trap, turning the city into a fortress that had to be taken block by block.

Volume 7, Number 2 (#26) There Must Be a Victory

Sailing ships with broadsides - the last vestige of "wooden ships and iron men." They mingle in a fleet action with iron-plated steamships, speedy armored rams, and a few ships with armored turrets. Mobile Bay? Charleston?

Volume 7, Number 3 (#27) The Pocket at Falaise

Cable TV news is full of horrific photos from “Highways of Death,” from Iraq to Libya that seem, almost literally, to be “paved” with burnt-out vehicles. Those who study WWII remember similar destruction... on the road out of the Falaise Pocket... where 25 German divisions raced for survival. But the devastation there was something unprecedented.

Volume 8, Issue 1 (#29) Buffalo Wings

Historians, air aficionados, and gamers may have friendly disagreements when asked, "What was the best Allied fighter of WWII?" There seems to be much easier agreement on the question, "Which was the worst?" Answers always seem to include the stubby Brewster "Buffalo" near the top of any list.

30 - The Lash of the Turk

Volume 8, Issue 2 (#30) The Lash of the Turk

With the fall of Jerusalem, Europe learned a new synonym for boogeyman—"Turk." The Ottomans recaptured the Holy Land and gradually spread into Europe like a slow tide, including capturing Constantinople and the Balkans. Presuming extreme cruelty, various European leaders called for new crusades, to free fellow Christians from "the Lash of the Turk."
