Fabulous Chain Mail Jewelry

Most chain mail project books focus on long chains of traditional chain mail weaves. In Fabulous Chain Mail Jewelry: Creating with Components, noted designer and teacher Marilyn Gardiner offers a fresh, component-based approach to chain mail jewelry. Gardiner teaches readers to create short segments of chain — components — and then combine these units with bead links and metal connectors. Readers will also learn to build custom shapes, bails, beads, pendants, and tassels to incorporate into their creations. The 25+ projects in Gardiner's newest book use sterling silver, copper, and some colored rings, all in her signature “office jewelry" style — jewelry women will feel comfortable wearing in any setting. Gardiner also offers design variations for some projects, allowing readers the freedom to make each piece their own. The projects include familiar weaves, but the emphasis is on the beautiful jewelry readers can create with short segments of chain mail rather than long chains. The book includes clear, easy-to-follow instructions and plenty of photos that will appeal to beginning jewelry makers. Readers with intermediate or advanced chain mail skills will enjoy using their skills in a new, innovative way.

Muhammad

That Muhammad succeeded as a prophet is undeniable; a prominent military historian now suggests that he might not have done so had he not also been a great soldier. Best known as the founder of a major religion, Muhammad was also Islam’s first great general. While there have been numerous accounts of Muhammad the Prophet, this is the first military biography of the man. In Muhammad: Islam’s First Great General, Richard A. Gabriel shows us a warrior never before seen in antiquity—a leader of an all-new religious movement who in a single decade fought eight major battles, led eighteen raids, and planned thirty-eight other military operations. Gabriel’s study portrays Muhammad as a revolutionary who introduced military innovations that transformed armies and warfare throughout the Arab world. Gabriel analyzes the environment in which Muhammad lived and the religion he inspired as they relate to his military achievements. Gabriel explains how Muhammad changed the social composition of Arab armies by replacing traditional ways of fighting with a new command structure. Muhammad’s transformation of Arab warfare enabled his successors to establish the core of the Islamic empire—an accomplishment that, Gabriel argues, would have been militarily impossible without Muhammad’s innovations. Richard A. Gabriel challenges existing scholarship on Muhammad’s place in history and offers a viewpoint not previously attempted.

Armies of the Germanic Peoples  200 BC to AD 500

Gabriele Esposito presents an overview of the military history of the Germanic peoples of this period and describes in detail the weapons and tactics they employed on the battlefield. He starts by showing how, from very early on, the Germanic communities were heavily influenced by Celtic culture. He then moves on to describe the major military events, starting with the first major encounter between the Germanic tribes and the Romans: the invasion by the Cimbri and Teutones. Julius Caesar's campaigns against German groups seeking to enter Gaul are described in detail as is the pivotal Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, which effectively halted Roman expansion into Germany and for centuries fixed the Rhine as the border between the Roman and Germanic civilizations. Escalating pressure of Germanic raids and invasions was a major factor in the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. The author's analysis explains how Germanic warriors were able to crush the Roman military forces on several occasions, gradually transformed the Roman Army itself from the inside and, after the fall of the Empire, created new Romano-Germanic Kingdoms across Europe. The evolution of Germanic weapons, equipment and tactics is examined and brought to life through dozens of color photos of replica equipment in use.
