2008 Annual - Operation Cartwheel

2008 Annual - Operation Cartwheel

“You are remembered for the rules you break.”

-- Douglas MacArthur

Deciding which battle in the Pacific War is the bloodiest all depends on what numbers are being counted. Convincing arguments can be made for Tarawa, Iwo, Okinawa, and Peleliu, and possibly others. One island’s name is not on the list. But it could have been...

2007 Annual - Look Away! The Fall of Atlanta

2007 Annual - Look Away! The Fall of Atlanta

"We will remove and destroy every obstacle - if need be, take every life, every acre of land, every particle of property, everything that to us seems proper."

-- William T. Sherman

At the climax of the American Civil War the armies of the Confederacy were pressed back into their heartland as the rebellion tried desperately to sustain itself against Union forces.

Campaign Study #1 - Wintergewitter

Campaign Study #1 - Wintergewitter

“This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a whimper.”

-- T. S. Elliot

Wintergewitter, operation "Winter Storm," began as the final outside effort to relieve surrounded Stalingrad, with a scratch Panzer Korps made up of units from all over the theater (and the strongest, 6th Panzer Division, coming back from refit in France!). Supported by already shaken Rumanian units, the force had 110 kilometers, two rivers, and two Soviet armies to cross...

Campaign Study #3 - Bradley's D-Day

Campaign Study #3 - Bradley's D-Day

“The second best decision, in time, is infinitely better than the perfect decision too late...”

-- Omar Bradley

Campaign Study #3, with Bradley’s D-Day inside, looks at the American efforts all along the right flank of the Normandy landings. While Utah Beach seemed relatively easy, it was at Omaha Beach where the Germans came closest to derailing the greatest sea-borne invasion of all time...

(NEW) The Asian Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for just $70.00!

Westerners have generally overlooked big events in the East-- unless someone like Genghis Khan or Tamerlane brings it to them. The only "Eastern" battle in the the Mitchell/Creasy "20 Decisive Battles that Changed the World" is Midway.

But there have been many significant wars and battles on the far side of Russia. Now, the Asian Way of War looks at three of the most intense, fought entirely between Asians.

The Musket’s Way of War

Three ziplock ATO back issues for just $70.00!

From the earliest battles, "ranged weapons" (like slings, spear throwers, bows) have been an important part of an army's structure... but melee/shock weapons were still where battles were usually won or lost.

That is, until the musket became an ever-larger part of armies all over the world....

"The Musket's Way of War" crosses three centuries to show the evolving nature of warfare and the emergence of the musket-armed infantryman as "Queen of Battle."

All for one low price...that includes shipping!

The Naval Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for just $70.00!

The Naval Way of War gives you a remarkable spread of important but little- known battles and campaigns.

Like the first real battle of the 100 Year’s War... a naval action that set the stage for centuries of English sea superiority. While details are misty through the ages, all agree the battle was Right Fierce & Terrible.

Or the little known “Seven Weeks War” of 1866, fought between Austria-Hungary and the forming nation of Italy. A remarkable naval action where an admiral, outnumbered two-to-one, had the temerity to order, There Must Be a Victory (and pull it off).

Or the opening campaign between Hitler and the just-entered-the-war U.S., where a handful of U-boats did more damage than what happened at Pearl Harbor, a unending “drumroll” (Paukenschlag) of sinking ships and high casualties.

It’s The Naval Way of War, from ATO Magazine. Three great issues at one low price.
