A Gentleman’s War, or Glossy Coats and Tin Bayonets by Howard Whitehouse & Dan Foley (Hardcover) $40.00

A Gentleman’s War, or Glossy Coats and Tin Bayonets by Howard Whitehouse & Dan Foley (Hardcover)

A Gentleman’s War, or Glossy Coats and Tin Bayonets by Howard Whitehouse & Dan Foley (Hardcover)

‘A Gentleman’s War’ is a simple game involving toy soldiers of the classic style. It is a relaxed
and relaxing game, where enough depends on the turn of a card and the roll of a handful of
dice to say that our disasters are pure chance, but enough cunning decision-making to claim
our victories as acts of brilliant generalship.
Our model soldiers are very brave, obedient, and generally do what we want them to. Players
are expected to behave in a friendly manner, and conduct themselves as gentlemen (or ladies,
as is appropriate). There are lots of six-sided dice, saving rolls, proper distances in inches,
and a general sense that there ought to be salmon-and-cucumber sandwiches and tea, or
beer.
“I’d have played this on Samoa, if I hadn’t been dying of tuberculosis” – Robert Louis Stevenson
“If I’d known I could have this much fun with toy soldiers, I’d never have become a real one”
– Field Marshal Helmuth Von Moltke
“Can we gamble for money?” – the entire general staff of the Austro-Hungarian army
“No spring loaded cannons at all?” - H. G. Wells

Pan Tadeusz by Adam Mickiewicz (ebook)

A new translation of the classic tale of mystery, war and patriotism by Adam Mickiewicz

Pan Tadeusz is an epic poem by the Polish poet, writer and philosopher Adam Mickiewicz. The book was first published in June 1834 in Paris and is considered by many to be the last great epic poem in European literature.  It is a tale of mystery, mistaken identity and patriotism set the days before Napoleon's invasion of Russia.

The story takes place over the course of five days in 1811 and two days in 1812, at a time in history, when Poland-Lithuania had already been divided between the armies of Russia, Prussia, and Austria and erased from the political map of Europe, although in 1807, just before the story begins, Napoleon had established a satellite Duchy of Warsaw in the Prussian partition, in existence until the Congress of Vienna held in the aftermath of Napoleonic defeat.

The place is situated within the Russian partition, in the village of Soplicowo; the country estate of the Soplica clan. Pan Tadeusz recounts the story of two feuding noble families, and the love between Tadeusz Soplica (the title character) of one family, and Zosia of the other. Another sub-plot involves a spontaneous revolt of the local inhabitants against the occupying Russian garrison. Since Mickiewicz published his poem as an exile in Paris, he was free of the Russian censors to talk openly about the occupation.

This translation is by one of the great translators of the Polish language Christopher Adam Zakrzewski

Tales of Mantica: Steps to Deliverance by Mark Barber (ebook)

The first novel based in the Kings of War universe

Over a decade after violating his ruthless orders from his superiors in the Basilean military, ex-legion captain Dionne emerges from hiding in the Mountains of Tarkis, leading a force of rebels against the dark forces of the Abyss. Desperate to clamp down on the popular rebel leader, the Basilean Duma dispatches a force to bring the former legion officer to justice. Leading the paladins of this force is Tancred, freshly promoted and harboring political ambitions of his own. Under the brutal leadership of Hugh, the commander of the force, Tancred must struggle to find the balance between obeying orders, following the path of righteousness, and advancing his own ambitions.

Assisting Tancred is Orion, a violent and dangerous paladin carrying a personal vendetta with Dionne; Constance, a tough and determined mercenary sharing a dark history with Hugh; Aestelle, a lone adventurer whose unique skills betray a mysterious past, and Valletto, a veteran legion mage thrown into the front line against his will.

Tancred and Orion must fight the rebels and their sympathizers whilst battling against the politics threatening to tear their force apart from within. They must do battle from the open plains of northern Basilea to the ancient caves below the Mountains of Tarkis, fighting all who cross their path as they give chase to a deadly and determined rebel. And all the while, the dark and deadly influence of the demonic forces of the Abyss continues to play its hand, manipulating events and people alike from afar…
