Marksmanship Instructors' and Coaches' Guide, The

By The United States Army Marksmanship Unit

Amsterdam NL: Fredonia Books , 2002. Acquiring the ability to shoot accurately is no simple matter. One should not assume that the art of advanced marksmanship is fully realized upon reading a training manual. It cannot be complete understood even after hours of advice and instruction from a qualified marksmanship coach or target shooter. To become a qualified shooter and be able to produce consistently high scores, one must learn to perform all the fundamentals of shooting, acquire certain definite habits, flawless coordination - and above all - have a capacity for the intense concentration essential to exercising a high degree of mental control. For this, one must train. It is difficult, if not impossible, to establish a universal system of training in marksmanship which will cover all cases, that is, one that can be adapted to every shooters technique or special need. Training shooters requires an individual approach. For this reason, knowledgeable coaches take the peculiarities of an individual - such as experience, degree of preparation and physical fitness - and other factors into account. Relying on their own experience, they devise a training program which allows special considerations for each shooters capabilities. In spite of the difference in details, technique or method, there is much that is common to the training of advanced marksmen. This manual endeavors to present, in a detailed, comprehensive manner, these universal applications. Advanced marksmanship training must of necessity, avoid the involved and exceedingly complex because it is an activity whose participants form a great cross-section of our national life, and the average citizen is its greatest asset. .

Wellington's Specialist Troops

By Haythornthwaite, Philip

London: Osprey Publishing, 1988. Men-At-Arms Series # 204 The specialist troops of Wellington's army played a crucial role in the success of the British Army. Though often understaffed and ineptly managed, the artillery, engineers, transport and commissariat, and medical services contributed to Wellington's ultimate victory in 1815. The Royal Artillery and Corps of Royal Engineers comprised a small number of highly trained officers, while the commissariat was composed of untrained civilians outside military discipline, and the medical services suffered from a shortage of trained surgeons. This richly illustrated book examines the organization, uniforms and equipment of each of these specialist departments. . 1st UK Edition. Soft Cover. As New. Illus. by Bryan Fosten .

Louis XIV's Army

By Chartrand, Rene

London: Osprey Publishing, 1989. Men-At-Arms Series # 203 Louis XIV's army was in many ways the first modern army. After assuming power in 1661, Louis abolished the post of Colonel General of Infantry so he could exercise direct control over the armed forces in his realm. The king demanded order, discipline and absolute loyalty from his army, and he introduced a military draft in 1688 - the first step towards what we know as conscription in modern armies. This book chronicles the development of Louis XIV"s army during his 54-year reign, including the units, uniforms and weapons of the elite Maison du Roi. Numerous illustrations portray the uniforms, colours and standards of his troops in vivid detail.. Reprint. Soft Cover. As New. Illus. by Francis Back.

Ancient Israel at War 853-586 BC

By Kelle, Brad E.

Oxford: Osprey Publishing, 2007. 'complex and unstable, in 922 BC the kingdom of Ancient Israel was divided into Judah, in the South, and Israel, in the North. For the next 200 years, there was almost constant warring between these kingdoms and their neighbors. These bitter feuds eventually led to the collapse of Israel, leaving Judah as a surviving nation until the emergence of the Babylonian Empire, the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BC, and the exile of the Judean people. Using ancient Jewish, Biblical, and other contemporary sources, this title examines the politics, fighting, and consequences of Israel's battles during this period. Focusing on the turbulent relationship between the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, this book explains Israel's complex, often bloody, foreign policy, and provides a definitive history of these ancient conflicts.
