In the recent past, I read three books from Osprey.

First was Osprey Raid #22: Decatur's Bold and Daring Act: The Philadelphia in Tripoli 1804, a naval raid intended to keep an American frigate out of the hands of the Barbary Pirates. Took place in a Libyan port, before it was Libya...

Second was Osprey Fortress #66: The Castles of Henry VIII built to protect England and Henry from the wrath of the Papacy.

Last was Osprey Warrior #156: Early Roman Warrior 753 - 321 BC which predates the Empire; deals with the early raids in Italy.
