FIELDBOOKS was set up in 1986 as a partnership between Peter Dennis and Paddy Griffith. We publish two titles:-
'Battle in the Civil War: Generalship and Tactics in America 1861-65' by Paddy Griffith, illustrated by Peter Dennis, 1986: ISBN 1 86 9871 00 6
The three 'General Burnside' figures at the foot of each page of this website are taken from the copious artwork in this book.
'This book represents outstanding value for money, and I strongly urge you to get a copy' - Wargame Review
'Battle in Africa 1879-1914' by Howard Whitehouse, illustrated by Peter Dennis, 1987: ISBN 1 869871 01 4.
Each book has 48 intensely-illustrated pages including some 30,000 words of text explaining the conditions of warfare and combat in the periods discussed. This is a unique approach which makes complex technical matters more instantly accessible and understandable than has been achieved by any previous type of military history.
Each has won extensive critical acclaim and has sold internationally. 'Battle in the Civil War' is available at most visitor centres on the battlefields themselves. 'Battle in Africa' is remarkable for its rare ability to see the late Victorian and Edwardian Imperial campaigns not only from the point of view of all the European participating nations - Portuguese, Italian and German as much as British and French - but also from the point of view of all the varied African powers that were being forced into submission.
Each book retails at $14.95 in USA or £6.95 in UK.
Please note that we can accept orders by e-mail, but we cannot accept credit- or debit- card payments - only cheques, please (payable to 'Fieldbooks').
Allow 30 days after receipt of payment for delivery in Europe, or 60 days in USA or elsewhere. Postage & packing included in the price.
Apart from the artwork shown on this page, further examples of Peter Dennis's work that are shown in this website are the two French colonial soldiers on the home page, and the front covers of 'Forward Into Battle' (2nd edition), 'Military Thought in the French Army', and 'Rally Once Again'.
