ARQUEBUSIER

 

The main organ of the Society is our journal Arquebusier. This is an A5 sized magazine of some 40 plus pages published six times a year. Each issue has a mixture of articles and illustrations provided by the membership of the society, and a central colour plate illustrating standards & colours, contemporary paintings etc. From its very inception it has aimed at providing historical information rather just than debating wargaming rules, we believe that we have found a happy medium since each edition has a range of articles of both a wargaming and historical focus.The final issue in each membership year is given over to a special theme, previous issues have featured the Wars of Religion, the Italian Wars and Tudor Armies.Arquebusier also covers reviews of new products, books, wargames figures, etc. and we can often offer discounted prices on the products reviewed as well as offering on-going discounts from a number of well known figure manufacturers (some of whom use Arquebusier as a source in designing their ranges). We aim to produce one volume (6 issues) a year, so if you have visited an interesting Museum or have a view on a book or set of rules, send us an article and see your name in print.

approximately one inch top and bottom as well as left and right. Hand-written articles should follow these spacing guidelines and should, in addition, have all names, titles and foreign language quotations PRINTED. Please do not use unusual typefaces or large fonts as this makes the article difficult to scan.

  • Petards in the Low Countries from the Sixteenth to the Eighteenth Centuries by Dr J. R. Verbeek

£10.00 (Public) £6.50 (Members)

The entrance to any fortification forms the weakest point; hence a lot of ingenuity has been focused throughout history on the attack of these places. The battering ram was one commonly used means of breaking down a door. However such a method lacked the element of surprise. The introduction of gunpowder made it not only possible to blow up the doors, but also to do it by surprise. When a black powder charge is exploded in the open, most of the blast effect is lost. To overcome this and still retain the element of surprise the petard was developed. This was vase-like metal vessel containing a compressed powder charge. Its strong walls channeled and enhanced the blast effect of the charge. This study looks at the design and employment of petards from their inception in the sixteenth century to their abandonment in the eighteenth century, with special reference to their use in the Low Countries. This book is A5 size, has 66 pages, and is profusely illustrated.

  • Uncharitable Mischief - Barbarity and Excess in the British Civil Wars by Charles Singleton

£ 10.00 (Public) £ 6.50 (Members)

The perception of a ‘civil’ Civil War in the British Isles during the mid seventeenth century still holds sway for many. However, the scars left on the landscape, be it the Queens Sconce at Newark, or the numerous musket ball poked-marked ruins and entrenchments that run the length of the Welsh Marches argue differently. In Uncharitable Mischief, Charles Singleton first places the conduct of the British Civil Wars within the context of the violent and unrestrained Thirty Years War then raging in continental Europe, but also examines Cromwell’s campaign in Ireland, contrasting it with what occurred in Europe and all over the British Isles. This paperback book has 70 pages, including 11 illustrations.

  • Brothers in Arms: the Hamiltons in Ireland, England and France 1610 - 1719 by D. P. Graham

£ 15.00 (Public) £ 10.00 (Members)

This work centres on the lives of the six Hamilton brothers during the 17th century, a story that underlines the old adage that ‘truth’ is ‘stranger than fiction’. The family’s trials and tribulations in the courts of a power hungry French monarch, deposed kings of the Stuart line and in the company of old English and native Irish Jacobites, encompass a slice of the past within the British Isles, which has not only been popularised in our current fascination with all things seventeenth century, but is itself important in terms of the building blocks for empire which followed. This paperback book contains 244 pages, including 6 maps.

  • The Struggle for Stralsund 1627-1630 by Don McNair

£10.00 (Public) £6.50 (Members)

In 1627, much as in 1940, a European land power literally drove its enemies into the sea, to the dismay of the vanquished, of onlookers, and maybe even of the victors. Only then did it emerge that the war was not over. Amongst many other things, the triumph served to increase the conqueror’s aspirations and the number and resolution of its enemies. With their backs to the wall, the underdogs battled on with uncommon zeal and creativity. Stralsund was one of those battlegrounds. A 66 page book.

  • Enniskillen and the Battle of Newtown Butler 1689 by D. P. Graham

£ 10.00 (Public) £ 6.50 (Members)

The Battle of Newtownbutler is one of the forgotten fights of the Irish Jacobite Wars. Even today the effects of the Boyne and of Aughrim are felt amidst the divisions that exist across Ireland. But Newtownbutler, fought before both of those larger confrontations, was relevant, not because of its size, but because it represented a turning point in the war. Until that time the conflict remained fluid and there was still a degree of uncertainty as to what would occur in Ireland. Before the battle, the Irish held their first Parliament, rallied under the deposed James II against anticipated invasion from William III, and tried to strengthen their position despite the protracted siege at Londonderry and the problems in the south of Ulster, centred on a small island town, known as Enniskillen.

  • Waller’s Army. The Regiments of Sir William Waller’s Southern Association by Laurence Spring

£15.00 (Public) £10.00 (Members)

Of all the generals of the English Civil War, Sir William Waller (1597-1668) probably best expressed its tragedy, referring to it as 'this war without an enemy' when writing to his friend Sir Ralph Hopton, whom he faced across the battlefield. Despite this he was a successful general, earning the nickname ‘William the Conqueror’. After his first army was routed at Roundway Down he received a commission to raise a new army. Although he continued to have victories, such as at Alton and Cheriton, he was never given the resources to follow up these victories. When the regional armies were eventually reformed into the ‘New Model Army’, Waller lost his command, and so his military career ended. This book analyses the regiments that made up his second army, which became known as the Southern Association. A 186 page paperback book with 6 pages of colour plates.

  • The English Companies of Foot in 1588

  • Lostwithiel 1644 – The Campaign and Battles by Stephen Ede-Borrett

£15.00 (Public) £10.00 (Members)

The summer 1644 campaign in the West of England was a exceptional feat of arms for the Royalist armies and, in contrast, a vivid demonstration of the complete lack of ability of their Parliamentarian opponents to work together. The resultant catastrophic defeat of the Earl of Essex’s army was, together with the failure at Newbury that autumn, highly influential in the vote that created the New Model Army in the following winter. Despite this, however, the campaign is often treated superficially or simply ignored in many histories of the war and no previous detailed history of it has been published, this work aims to correct those omissions. A 158 page paperback book.

  • The Franco-Spanish War: the Sieges of Lleida from 1644 to 1647 by Pierre A. Picouet

£15.00 (Public) £10.00 (Members)

Renaissance Military Texts 

 

  • The Iter Carolinum of Charles I & The Journall of Prince Rupert's Marches. Edited by Stephen Ede-BorrettNEW!

£10.00 (Public) £6.50 (Members)

A 48-page paperback book containing two texts relating to the movement of the Royalist Armies during the English Vivil Wars of 1642-49.

  • 'An ill jurney for the Englshemen'. Elis Gruffydd and the 1523 French campaign of the Duke of Suffolk.Transcribed by M. Byrn Davies and edited with a new introduction by Jonathan Davies.

£5.00 (Public) £3.00 (Members)

This 'most ill-conceived and ill-managed war' was how Sir Charles Oman, the great historian of Renaissance warfare, described the English invasion of France in 1523. This hopelessly misguided campaign saw an English army meander aimlessly over Northern France to little effect, reaching as far as Montdidier before retiring back to the Channel with its tail between its legs. The story is told largely in the words of contemporary documents and in particularly through the eyes of Elis Gruffydd, an articulate Welsh soldier who left a journal of his experiences full of vigour, freshness and well-developed sense of irony. A 72-page paperback book.

  • Vol. 1: Warfare in the Age of Louis XIV

£10.00 (Public) £ 6.50 (Members)

This volume contains three texts with a general theme of warfare during the reign of the iconic French king Louis XIV. Their subjects are:

- A journal of the 1684 Siege of Luxembourg, written from the point of view of the French besiegers, and giving a day-by-day, blow-by-blow account, and authored by a person high enough in the hierarchy to have a complete picture of all events. Edited by Robert Hall.

- Extracts from The London Gazette, covering the action at Elixheim on 18 th July 1705, where Marlborough forced the Lines of Brabant. Edited by Iain Stanford.

- The letters of Richard Pope, a junior officer in an English cavalry regiment, who served from the Glorious Revolution to the War of the Spanish Succession. Edited by Neil Rennoldson.

  • Thomas Audley and the Tudor Art of War. Commentary by Jonathan Davies

£10.00 (Public) £6.50 (Members)

A 64-page paperback book reprinting a mid-16^th century treatise on the art of war, written for Edward VI by a veteran Tudor soldier. An extensive introduction provides a detailed analysis of the treatise. In addition the book also reprints, in detail, the Cowdray House illustrations of the siege of Boulogne in 1544 and the French attack on Portsmouth in 1545.

  • The Art of Gunnery (1647) together with A Treatise of Artificall Fire-Works (1647) by Nathanael Nye . Introduction and Transcription by Cliff Mitchell.

£10.00 (Public) £6.50 (Members)

Nathaniel Nye’s work, first published in 1647, was part of an ongoing series of such ‘Gunnery Manuals’ that first began appearing in the sixteenth century. However it is one of only two whose authors are known to have served during the English Civil Wars. As such it is an invaluable addition to our knowledge of the way that contemporary artillerymen felt that their pieces should be handled and its re-publication in 1670 says a great deal about its success and popularity during the seventeenth century. A 96 page paperback booklet.

  • Elis Gruffyrd and the 1544 ‘Enterprises’ of Paris and Boulogne . Transcribed by M. Byrn Davies and edited with a new introduction by Jonathan Davies

£5.00 (Public) £3.00 (Members)

An 80-page paperback booklet reprinting a contemporary account of the 1544 English campaign in France that culminated in the capture of Boulogne. Elis Gruffydd’s remarkable journal contains a wealth of detail – military, social and political; and from a viewpoint that is hardly ever recorded. Elis was a fully paid up member of the “Poor Bloody Infantry”, and despite attaining the rank of Captain his sympathies were with the suffering soldiery rather than their aristocratic commanders. His harshest criticisms are directed at those in command although he has little time for “idle” soldiers unable to shift for themselves. Opinionated, well informed and thoroughly experienced in the ways of the world his commentary on the expedition is a delight in its vigour, freshness and well-developed sense of irony.

 

Wargame Rules:

  • General-At-Sea by Iain Stanford. A Pike and Shot Society Publication.

£10.00 (Public) £6.50 (Members)

General-at-Sea are the sister rules of Captain-General and are designed specifically to provide an answer to the challenge of how one can practically wargame the great naval battles of the late 17 th and early 18 th centuries. These engagements involved hundreds of ships and often lasted for days on end. Designed to use smaller scale models (1/2400 and 1/3000), the rules put the player in the role of an Admiral of the period. A stand represents about four ships and a number of stands are used to make up the divisions and squadrons of a fleet. In order to control these stands a robust command system is in place, which limits what players can and cannot do. The rules are designed on the premise that what has been applied to the larger scale land wargames rules can also be applied to naval warfare and that if players can accept moving brigades on the table as one unit, then why not a group of ships?
