Fighting Ships of the Far East (2) - Japan and Korea AD 612-1639 (Osprey)

Over the centuries, naval relations between Japan and Korea appear to have alternated between peaceful trade and outright hostility. However, this impression can be misleading, as much of what passed for mercantile activity was in fact conducted by Japanese pirate fleets, who pillaged the coasts of Korea and China in a long-lasting tradition that culminated in the greatest pirate raid of all: Hideyoshi's invasion of Korea in 1592.
This was the conflict that involved Ming China and almost dragged in Siam. It also led to Korea developing East Asia's most famous warship: the legendary turtle ship, which is described for the first time in full technical detail in this book.

Contents: Introduction - Fighting Ships and Naval Warfare in Japan and Korea - Techniques and Types of Korean Ships and Shipbuilding - Korean Shipboard Armaments - Korean Fighting Ships in Action - Techniques and Types of Japanese Ships and Shipbuilding - Japanese Shipboard Armaments - Japanese Fighting Ships in Action - Suggestions for Further Reading - Colour plate Commentary - Index.

Byzantine Warship vs Arab Warship : 7th - 11th Centuries (Osprey)

For 400 years the Byzantine Empire's naval forces vied with the warships of the Islamic world for mastery of the Mediterranean. At the heart of this confrontation were the fighting vessels of the two powers, the Byzantine dromon and the Arabic shalandi, both oared warships.
In those four centuries of warfare between two major maritime powers, both the Byzantines and the Arabs left us records of their doctrine and tactics, as well as of how their ships were built.

Featuring full-colour artwork and rigorous analysis from an authority on naval warfare, this enthralling book offers a glimpse of the long-lost world of war at sea in the age of Byzantium.

Contents: Introduction - Chronology - The Strategic Situation - Design and Development - Technical Specifications - The Combatants - Combat - Analysis - Aftermath - Further Reading - Index.

Viking Longship (Osprey)

Viking longships evolved from one-man canoes of the Scandinavian Stone Age, through wood-built-ships of c. 200 BC into the recognisable longboats of the 4th century AD. From this point, the Viking Longship developed into the pre-eminent raider and trader in the North Sea and Baltic, venturing as far afield as the Mediterranean, North Atlantic and modern-day Russia.
Keith Durham uses reconstructions, original sources, translations and archaeological evidence to render a vivid picture of the vessels that dominated the seaways of Scandinavia, founded colonies on Iceland, Greenland and the New World and terrorised the coastlines of northern Europe. Also covered are Norman vessels, including the invasion fleet of William the Conqueror.

Contents: Introduction - The evolution of the Viking ship - Early skin and log boats - The Viking Age - Shipwrights and shipbuilding - Karvi - Shipbuilding in the 11th century - Conclusion - Glossary - Colour plate commentary - Index.
