Women warlords : an illustrated military history of female warriors by Timothy Newark( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women Warlords is the first book to reveal the reality of female military leadership in ancient and medieval warfare. It discovers true Amazon chieftains buried beneath the steppes of southern Russia and reconstructs their unique society in which women fought alongside men and could only marry when they had slain an enemy. It describes the last campaign of the African Amazons of Dahomey battling against the French in 1892, including rarely seen photographs of the women warriors. The book follows Queen Zenobia's remarkable attempt to set up an Empire of the East, independent from the Romans. It relates stories of women crusaders, the sexual flaws of Celtic Queens, and places Joan of Arc in the context of other contemporary women warlords, equally victorious but far less famous. Women Warlords is about the women who held real power, their strategy and tactics, and their charismatic leadership and fighting courage. The warriors include Artemisia, Zenobia, Medb, Cartimandua, Boudica, Aethelflaed, Matilda of Tuscany, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Jeanne de Montfort. Tim Newark reconstructs their triumphant careers from contemporary sources and medieval chronicles. Angus McBride's illustrations recreate the authentic appearance of the warlords and their warriors."--Dust cover

Empire of crime : organised crime in the British Empire by Timothy Newark( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sometimes the best intentions can have the worst results. In 1905, British reformers banned the export of Indian opium to China. As a result, the world price of opium soared to a new high and a century of lucrative drug smuggling began. Criminal producers in other countries exploited the prohibition and gang wars broke out across South-East Asia. It was the greatest gift the British Empire gave to organised crime. Empire of Crime introduces the reader to a whole new collection of heroes and villains, including pioneering narcotics investigator Major-General Russell Pasha, commandant of the Cairo police force; master criminal Du Yue-Sheng, drug lord of the Shanghai underworld; and tough, Pashtofluent North-West Frontier police chief Lieutenant-Colonel Roos-Keppel, nemesis of Afghan criminal gangs. Author Tim Newark weaves hidden reports, secret government files and personal letters together with first-hand accounts to tell the epic story of a global fight against organised crime
The Fighting Irish : the Story of the Extraordinary Irish Soldier by Timothy Newark( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For hundreds of years, Irish soldiers have sought their destiny abroad. Wherever they've traveled, whichever side of the battlefield they've stood, the tales of their exploits have never been forgotten. Leaving his birthplace, the Irish soldier has traveled with hope, often seeking to bring a liberating revolution to his fellow countrymen. In search of adventure the Fighting Irish have been found in all corners of the world. Some sailed to America and joined in frontier fighting, others demonstrated their loyalty to their adopted homeland in the bloody combats of the American Civil War, as well as campaigns against the British Empire in Canada and South Africa. The Irish soldier can also be found in the thick of war during the twentieth century-facing slaughter at the Somme, desperate last-stands in the Congo-and, more recently, in Iraq and Afghanistan. In The Fighting Irish, Tim Newark tells their tales in the dramatic words of the soldiers themselves, gathered from diaries, letters, journals, and interviews with veterans in Ireland and across the world
