Dissatisfied with poor production standards and mainstream publishing s unwillingness to integrate good maps and photos into the text, in 1998 he and his wife Roberta formed Napoleonic Books in order to produce quality editions of Napoleonic history. In 1983 the Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research published Arnold's paradigm-shifting tactical study, A Reappraisal of Column Versus Line in the Napoleonic Wars. In addition to his Napoleonic titles, Arnold s latest works include Jungle of Snakes, a case study history of modern counterinsurgency." Condition: Very good in very good dust jacket. DJ has slight wear and soiling, and some sticker residue at back.
