  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~

Funny thing, in the last year I have hunted them all down with the exception of the Somme which I have little interest in.

My favorite was the Zulu Wars though all of them have been exceptionally well written.  This one manages to tell the entire story of the campaign in this one volume with the major focus centered around Rorke's Drift.

I saw and ignored these for years until the Crimea Lancers cousin Charles put out sparked my interest.  Thoroughly impressed on the quality I hunted them down one by one paying far more than if I purchased over time as they were discovered.

Any way one of many guilty pleasures and another wound to my wallet cousin Charles has to answer for...
