Обращаем внимание уважаемых публикаторов на то, что крайне желательно оформлять ваши новости в соответствии с правилами экранной типографики, то есть в качестве тире печатать именно длинное тире, а не дефис, в качестве кавычек — елочки и “лапки”, а не знак дюйма, и так далее. Для этого, набирая текст, предположим, в Ворде (в целях уменьшения количества орфографических ошибок, хотя описанное ниже работает везде), следует использовать следующие сочетания клавиш (имеется ввиду, удерживая Alt набирать на цифровой клавиатуре те или иные четыре цифры):
— (длинное тире) [Alt+0151]
– (среднее тире) [Alt+0150]
« (открывающая елочка) [Alt+0171]
» (закрывающая елочка) [Alt+0187]
“ (открывающая лапка) [Alt+0147]
” (закрывающая лапка) [Alt+0148]
Очень надеемся, что вы этой рекомендацией воспользуетесь, заранее спасибо. Ну а теперь перейдем-ка мы к военно-историческим книжкам:

David Nicolle and Angus McBride (Illustrator), «Armies of the Ottoman Turks 1300–1774» Men at Arms Series 140
Osprey Publishing UK | 1983 Year | PDF | 8,27 Mb | 46 Pages

The birth of the Ottoman state is shrouded in legend. Whatever the truth of its origins, the Ottoman's formed an Empire which almost succeeded in bringing Christian Europe to its knees. During the last decades of the 13th century, the ambitious Osman Bey's tiny mountain state took eight frontier castles plus the Turkish town of Eskisehir. In 1299 Osman seized Yenisehir after working up the Kara Su valley. With this as its first real capital, the Ottoman state emerged into history poised above the fertile shores of the Sea of Marmara.

David Nicolle and Angus McBride (Illustrator), «El Cid and the Reconquista 1050–1492» Men at Arms Series 200
Osprey Publishing UK | 1988 Year | PDF | 9,97 Mb | 48 Pages

The very name El Cid sums up much of the special character of medieval Spanish warfare. It comes from the Arabic al sayyid, master or chieftain, and seems to have been given to Rodrigo de Vivar by his Muslim foes. But was it given in recognition of El Cid's victories against Islam in the “Reconquista” — or because this Castilian nobleman was as content to serve beside the Muslims as to fight them? The story of the Christian conquest of the Iberian peninsula which gave rise to the legend of El Cid, is here examined by David Nicolle, who outlines the history, tactics, arms and armour of the period.

David Nicolle and Angus McBride (Illustrator), «Armies of Medieval Russia 750–1250» Men at Arms Series 333
Osprey Publishing UK | 1999 Year | PDF | 9,01 Mb | 50 Pages

In the centuries following the first expeditions down the great rivers of northern Russia by Viking traders and adventurers, the foundations for a new state were laid. Many influences combined in this colourful culture which grew up first around the great cities of Kiev and Novgorod — Scandinavian, Finnish, Slav, steppe Turkish, Byzantine. By the time of the Mongol invasions of the 12th century the small enclaves of the old pagan Rus’, tolerated by the Khazar Khans for their commercial usefulness, had evolved into a Christian nation. Its story is told here in fascinating detail, and illustrated with striking colour reconstructions of the warriors themselves.
