Specialty military collections will find these new Osprey titles important, detailed references. John Weal's JUNKERS JU 87 STUKAGESCHWADER OF THE RUSSIAN FRONT (9781846033087, $22.95), for example, offers the final volume in a trilogy and is a recommended pick for those with the prior 2, covering the aircraft that represented the Nazi Blitzkrieg and completing the publishers' history of the Luftwaffe's World War II bomber. Stephen Turnbull's THE SAMURAI INVASION OF KOREA 1592-98 (9781846032547, $19.95) is for any collection of early military history and covers the early invasions of Korea launched by Japanese dictator Hideyoshi: a unique event in that he was the only samurai to invade a foreign country--and planned to move from Korea to China. Mark Stille's IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY BATTLESHIPS 1941-45 (9781846032806, $17.95) covers the 12 big Japanese battleships that saw service during World War II. The author's use of primary sources and dramatic photos provides a visual survey of the ships: in fact all the coverages are powerful in original resources and vintage illustrations.
