Marlborough, Britain's Greatest General

Posted by Richard on October 29, 2009

When reading Richard Holme's biography of John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough I was struck by how close we were to not ever seeing the full potential of 'Corporal John'. The court of Charles II in which Churchill and his wife Sarah operated was a wilder, less civilised and more dangerous place than I had imagined (It was also dirtier; Charles II only bothered to shave a couple of times a week). The career path John Churchill would take would eventually lead him to a command of a coalition army in the struggle against the imperial ambitions of Louis XIV but this future was by no means assured.

Wear Your Favorite Osprey Book!

Posted by Kerry on May 25, 2009

Last weekend I had the honor of going to the Museum Store Association trade show in Phoenix, and while my New York colleagues were stuck in a torrential downpour all week, I was off enjoying a variety of museum display items in sunny, 95-degree Arizona. I was particularly excited to meet the reps from Legacy of Valor, who have licensed loads of Osprey artwork to be printed on t-shirts, long sleeve shirts and hoodies (or jumpers, as I think you call them in the UK).

Posted by Richard on May 20, 2009

Last week I visited the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Trust (SOFO) an organisation that houses the archives and military memorabilia of three Oxfordshire regiments - the Oxfordshire OTC, Oxfordshire Yeomanry and Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (43rd and 52nd).

A Game of Thrones

Posted by Richard on May 09, 2009

When it comes to fantasy fiction I'm extremely picky. Too many times the presence of elves, wizards and orcs has been an excuse for terrible dialogue and lame plots. I prefer 'realistic' fantasy where the characters and story grapple with situations and conflicts that ring true. And where they get to carry a big axe.

My top ten war films that should be remade

Posted by Mike on May 06, 2009

Hollywood is all about rebooting characters at the minute. Batman got a reboot. Then the reboot got a sequel which became one of the most successful films of all time. Bond has been rebooted - the humour and gadgets are gone and replaced by gritty punchy seat of your pants action. Which went on to spawn another film. Star Trek has been rebooted, even Wolverine has been rebooted in a way.

Henry VIII: Dressed to Kill

Posted by Richard on April 07, 2009

Apparently there is a new exhibition at the Tower of London that should be worth a look at if you are interested in the arms and armour of the Tudor age...
