Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great holiday season. And here are my Elite suggestions:

1. WWI Artillery Tactics
2. Rhodesian Fireforce Tactics
3. The Royal Navy 1914-18
4. The U.S. Air Force (Maybe a two volume series, from the USAF's creation through Vietnam, and the second volume to the present)
5. Germany's Air Defenses 1939-45

Some of my suggestions:

1. Elite and Special Forces of Russian Federation (two volumes - the first dealing with the Armed Forces proper, the second with elite troops of the Ministry of Interior etc.)
2. Indian Forces Today (there was a volume on elite forces, and it would be fine to have a general overview of Indian military as well - in a similar manner as with Israel, where we got a book on elite forces and on the army in general)
3. NATO Armies since 1987 (two volumes: the first dealing with the old NATO member states and changes which occurred since the previous book, the second examining the new member states).
4. Australian, Indian, Japanese and Soviet Home Fronts 1939-45
I also second the motion on the USAF.

Elite
1. Native American Tactics 1700-1815 - Although often underrated it was the Native American First Nations who forced the European colonists to adopt thier forest fighting tactics and influenced the development of regular light infantry, particularly in the British army.

2. Victoria’s Navy
It was the sailors of the Victorian Navy on the sea (and sometimes on land with the Naval Brigades) that protected Britian and made the British Empire. A time of rapid technological change that went from sailing ships to the ironclad age the sailors of Victorias navy proved themselves up to virtually any task.

3. Japanese Armies 1868-1895
From the Meiji restoration, the Boshin War, Satsuma Rebellion and on to the Sino-Japanese War few military forces in history have undergone such radical, rapid and successful changes as that of Japan.

4. Prussian Napoleonic Commanders
Okay, I am biased, I have a Prussian Napoleonic Corps (Von Kliests) in 15mm and I need more background!

5. The Barbary Corsairs
Hey, it's about the only major Pirate force in history that does not already have an Elite title and a major part of the history of the Med'!

2. Ancient World Tactics (I mean hoplite falanx, falangite falanx, shield wall, hunic and parthic cavalry tactics,...) - Possibily something like elite 185 European Medieval Tactics
3. Cataphracts and clibanary, armoured chivalry (seleucian, persian, partian and, of course, roman
4. Armour and Equipment of the Roman Soldier from Monarchy to the Fall of Rome/Byzantium (I didn´t know if it could fit in elite series)
5. The Tercios (the combination of pikes, swords and arquebuses) Spanish Golden Century Tactics

1) I second Mr. Upton's suggestion for a title on the Barbary Corsairs.

2) The Spanish Navy of the Napoleonic Wars. There are already some fine titles in Elite, MAA, and Warrior covering the British and French navies, but considering that Spain was probably the third most important naval power of the era the absence of a dedicated title on Spain's navy is a rather glaring omission.

3) United States Navy and Marine Corps 1794-1815.

4) Mercenaries in Africa.

5) American Civil War Infantry tactics.

Some of these are a little redundant, but -

US Navy Underwater Demolition Teams of WWII (may want to include NCDUs)

Colonial Rangers (Other than Rogers' - i.e., specific units; e.g., Goreham's, etc)

Berdan's Sharpshooters

Alaska Scouts (might want to include 7th Scout Battalion)

Alamo Scouts

Also second GI Gene's first 2

1-Australian Special Forces of World War II (Coastwatchers, Z Special Unit) - should also include the Independent Companies

2-British Naval Commandos of World War II (SBS, COPPS, Chariot & X-Craft Crews) - SBS is really 3rd British SAS , so it probably doesn't belong, but the Special Boat Sections of the early Commandos might be a good substitute.

Also Chariots and X-Craft might be more fitting for New Vanguard.

Here's my list of five titles:
1. Victoria Cross Winners of World War Two: Medal of Honor, Iron Cross and Heroes/Heroines covered so why not VC's? The Shire title just doesn't give the same coverage
2. Corpo Truppe Volontarie (CTV): Larger than the Condor Legion, which has its own Elite title and very little available on it in English. Osprey's also having a nice little run of Italian and Spanish Civil War titles released and pending and this would fit in well
3. WW2 Ground attack tactics: Air support came into its own during WW2. Looking at the Axis and Allied changes and development, cab rank system , and could include Artillery observation units
4. WW2 Air Anti-shipping tactics: The strangling of Rommel's supply lines, actions of Norway, France, Arctic convoys, Pacific and in the Med, problems of torpedo attacks vs dive bombing
5. Here I'll include some of the titles I support: IJN 41-45, WW1 Artillery tactics, Germany's Air Defences 39-45, Kriegsmarine 39-45,

Osprey seem to have abandoned 'Commanders' titles in the Elite series, presumably because of the 'Command' series. However, these are not equivalent as the latter will only cover a small proportion of commanders (with the possible exception of German, American and British WWII comanders) i.e. the really famous ones.
Therefore my suggestions are:
1. Soviet Commanders of WW2
2. Japanese Commanders of WW2
3. Commanders of WW1: Germany's Allies
4. Allied Commanders of WW1 (1): British, Dominions and US
5. Allied Commanders of WW1 (2): French, Russian and Italian
This is not a complete list (Commanders of the Thirty Years War?).

Also, hopefully we will eventually get:
Russian Napoleonic Infantry Tactics;
Austro-Hungarian Napoleonic Infantry Tactcs;
to complete the set!

By the way, there is no Austro-Hungarian tactics or Empire or whatever during Napoleonic times. Austria –Hungary existed from 1867 to 1918. So please let’s use the terms as scientifically as possible. ;)


I see very many awesome titles which would better suit the MAA series.


I also agree with the titles on WW1 commanders – beside US, British, French, Italian and Russian, don’t forget there were also commanders from Portugal, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Belgium…WW1 commanders of Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey would also make nice titles.


Other titles I liked from the ones already mentioned – NKVD Troops, Roman Auxiliaries, Ancient World Tactics, Cataphracts and clibanary, armoured cavalry, French Gendarme 1455-1598, Red Army Elite Units & Special Forces 1939-1945, Corpo Truppe Volontarie (CTV), Barbary Pirates, Renaissance Infantry Tactics, Renaissance Cavalry Tactics, The Swiss Guard.

This is something of an extension of one suggestion I made above, but how about a title about unusual US Army regiments?

Berdan's Sharpshooters is on my list, but there's also the Rangers of the War of 1812, the Regiment of Voltigeurs and Foot-riflemen, the Battalion of Mounted Rangers and I'm sure there are others.

Hi formwiz,
Osprey has a Warrior title on Sharpshooters in the Civil War. As for the Regiment of Voltigeurs and Foot Riflemen, were they ever used in a role other than conventional infantry? I know there were plans to mount part of the regiment, and they were to be uniformed in gray, but I don't think the separate uniforms or the mounts materialized.
I do think something on the U.S. Riflemen during the War of 1812 would be interesting. Perhaps a Warrior title would be best.

Hi, CM.

I believe I have the Sharpshooters book, now that you mention it (I have to dig through a couple of bookcases to be sure).

As far as I know the uniforms for the Voltigeurs were made and used, cadet gray faced with yellow, the light infantry color. There was a rocket battery that was also part of the regiment that accompanied them to Mexico, but didn't find a use for its unique capabilities.

I believe they participated in the assault on Chapultepec, but that's all I know. I've seen illustrations of them carrying rifles including one by Ogden.

As I say, a very unique outfit.

And there were several Ranger, as opposed to rifle, companies in the War of 1812 and the Mounted Rangers of 1832.

It just seemed there were a number of very unique formations, including the grenadier, rifle, and light infantry companies of the period from about 1820 - 1833 that might be combined into one book, as there might not be enough material on each to justify separate books.

Just a thought.

2. U-Boat Aces Of WW2
3. Animal Heroines Of WW1 & WW2
4. Escape & Evasion Lines In Occupied Europe 1939-45
5. The Merchant Navy Of WW2

Not my best series in terms of the number of books i already have, but feel these would make good titles.

Just to add some comments regarding the "Regiment of Voltigeurs & Foot-Riflemen": The unit was uniformed in the standard pattern fatigue uniform though in grey instead of dark or sky blue with yellow trim as used by the Dragoons & Foot Artillery. Despite the grand title they were really just regular infantry, while they may have had small mountain artillery pieces and crude rockets of the time the mounted component never came to being. Surplus grey uniforms were used by the "Mexican Spy Company" in U.S. service (reference: Company of Military Historians plate) The Regiment later merged into the post-war 8th Infantry.

I would think a Warrior title on the Regular Riflemen of 1808-1815 would be outstanding as would one on Northern Militia & Riflemen (New York & Maryland had notable Rifle units)
