Allen Allenson is a young gentlemen by birth though he was born and raised on the distant colonial planet of Manzanita rather than Brasilia, the homeworld.

Into the maelstrom by David Drake( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cutter Stream colonies were at peace. If everyone behaved reasonably, that peace could last a thousand years. Allen Allenson had known war; it had made him peaceful and reasonable. He was far too experienced to believe the same of all his fellow colonists, let alone the government of the distant homeworld. War was coming, a war the colonies had to win if they were ever to be more than prison camps and a dumping ground for incompetent noblemen. Allenson knew that he wasn't really a general, but he understood his fellow colonists better than any homeworld general could. He would free the Cutter Stream or die trying"--

Poseidon's warriors : classical naval warfare 480-31 BC by John Lambshead( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poseidon's Warriors is a set of wargaming rules for large-scale naval actions between fleets of Classical galleys, from the Greek and Persian clash at the Battle of Salamis, to the Battle of Actium that decided the fate of Rome. With so many of these battles taking place around islands or in narrow channels and shallow waters, sneaky tactics and cunning maneuvers are a hallmark of the era's warfare. The rules use an integrated turn system to allow a commander to position ships to go in and ram without being rammed in return, or to employ feints and traps to tempt the enemy out of position and leave his ships vulnerable to a follow-up strike. With data for ships throughout the period, rules for famous admirals, historical scenarios, a campaign system, and a brief historical summary for those who wish to refresh their memory of the era, Poseidon's Warriors offers everything players need to equip themselves for the battles and campaigns of the first great age of naval warfare."
