Well the year is drawing to an end and I have a couple of book ideas for under your tree in about 42 days :o It has been a slow year in books.  :( The first is from Military Mode Publishing and it is titled WW 1 British Battle Insignia by Kevin Beckhurst. Yes the ox train arrived :o after a year. I like what I see in the sample  pages lots of pictures of how the insignia is placed on the uniform. Second is  Horse Archers weapons Vol 1 & 2 By Gyozo Somogyi. :o I have the whole series and I like them very much 8) They are in English and Hungarian . Third is The War Of the Triple Alliance by Gabrielle Esposito printed by Winged Hussar At first I was a bit apprehensive about this publisher because of other books they printed and did not get great reviews  :o So I got on the phone talked to the owner and he stated they had worked out the problems. I think this well be a great book to have about a little known subject. This author has done Several Ospreys this year and I recommend these also  1.Armies of The Italian Wars of Unification 1848-1870 Vol 1  8) 2. Armies of the First Carlist War due on 12-19-17  3. This book well be out next year Armies of Early Colonial North America 1607-1713. As for Osprey well there are a lot of titles in the Men at Arms Series to chose from . I like these little books for painting :o I know there are a lot of more books out there that go into more detail and I have them but if you get paint on them no major lose and they are getting better in there art work and material.  An for the guys with deep pockets there are always Verlag Militaria  German Artillery 1870-1914  Belgium Uniforms of WW 1 and the latest German Pioneers 1870-1914. Willie ::)

 While staying at my daughters to set out the storm. I was able to go to the National Capital Model Soldier show and picked up this book  Die Formations-und Uniformierungs- Geschichte des preubischen Heers 1808-1914. By Von Paul Pietsch  Volume 2 printed in 1966. In the 60s this was state of the art on German Uniforms some color plates but most are B/W drawings with nice detail . I want to get volume 1 on the infantry. Willie.  The book is in German but with a Webster's German English Dictionary no problem . Willie

The Dress of the Royal Artillery by D Alastair Campbell printed in 1971  By Arms and Armor Press. It covers from around 1642- 1960s The size is nice not big and not small in the middle. Osprey has a couple of new Men at Arms series out. The Dutch Armies of the 80 years war,  Histoire and Collections US Army Vehicle Markings in the European Theater of Operations.  :o Willie

Just ordered Edition Krannich's new Mohr book. I am glad that I didn't buy the earlier book, ther is probably so much more new information in the recent.

  As the year comes to an end  ???  I have my year end books list,  This year was not really a large amount of books on Uniforms :-\  Histoire & Collections did not come out with any in there Officers and Soldiers series. They had one on Women In Uniform but if its like the two volumes on American Uniforms in the Vietnam War forget it. Second Andrea Publishing. Grunt, US Elite Force and Hookup US Paratroops in Vietnam and the Cold War. All three of these books have loads and loads of pictures of equipment. ???  Now for those who have deep pockets there is The Belgain Army in The Great War, and Imperial German Artillery 1871-1914 By Verlag Militaria very nice books but very expensive and heavy :o  The Hungarian Army Series from Hungary is a great deal I now have all 10 of them 8)  Osprey had some great titles this year the Warrior series and  Men at Arms. 8) Military Mode Publishing weighting for there Campaign 1916 to come out and they said they where going to do, one on the patches of the British Soldier in World War I. Now for the Armor fans  Camouflage and Markings Allied Armor in the Battle for Cassino Jan-May 1944, Camouflage and Markings Commonwealth & Greek Armor in The Balkans Campaign April-May 1941 .  This year also marks a milestone for me :o  After years of buying books I have come to a halt. I no longer have the room :P  I have a collection that if there's a question I can fine the answer. ::)  I am now at the point where I can pick and choose ::) . Also I have been buying CDs on uniforms and I like them and they don't take up room. So if you have any ideas about CDs or books let me know. Willie

Belated birthday greetings for yesterday, Willie, from another who has reached 69 (in October).  Now you have Stuart Reid's excellent book "Like Hungary Wolves", you might be considering painting some figures from that era.  I can certainly recommend the Highlanders produced by the Austrian Editor, Scheibert.  These figures are available from http://www.zinnfigurenwelt-katzelsdorf.at     
Marko and Gerhard kindly recommended the site to me when I was looking for information about Scheibert in September.  Peter oo~
