So I am back again with the Greeks and Romans. The first two are really good for information and color prints. Early Aegean Warrior 5000-1450 BC by Raffaele D'Amato . If anyone has a Minoan bull set you can get lots of ideas on how to paint them. Second by the same author is Bronze age Greek Warrior 1600-1100 BC I can see a nice set about Troy the color is great and lots of information. There will be third on Bronze age Carthage.  Roman Centurions 753-31 BC, Roman Centurions 31BC-AD500  Now the last one An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Uniforms of the Roman World by Kiley it has been out a year but still a good one to get lots of prints to work from Willie  The above books are printed by Osprey

 Once again it is October and most of the shows are done and now we begin to look towards Christmass . Over the few months I have gotten some very interesting books. But before I start this let me take a moment to explane a few things. I enjoy buying books and writing them up for this forum. Most of them are on uniforms and a few on military History, Art, Aircraft and Ships. If I can help someone in getting the right book for his painting then I have done my job. I am not an expert but one who keeps on learning every time I pick up a new book. Second there is no such thing as the all knowing book on this subject, some are better then others. Third there are books priced for every taste. There was one member who said how luck we where to have all these book. I can remember when I first started out and it took a lot of time to get here and you can do the same thing. Also it helps when you have a loving wife who goes along with you even when she thinks all you get them for is the color pictures.  So lets get started.
            Historie & Collections
           1.Germany in Uniform By Paul Gaujac. From Reichswehr  to Wehrmacht.  A paper back book with a lot of  Knotel drawings in it. It covers a lot of the different organizations in the 30s. For a starter book on the subject it is nice. They Could have done a better job on the printing of uniforms in the book.
           2. Officers and Soldiers of  France. Paper back. So fare there have been 23 in the series the last two being Carabiniers 1679-1871 French Artillery 16871815 There are lot color plats in these books and one the thing I like is you use them for painting and if you get paint on them it does not cost you a arm and leg. Osprey look out.
           Andrea Publishing
           1. Deutsche Luftwaffe Hard Back. By Gustavo Cano & Santiago Guillen. These books are great books geared towards the collector with lots of pictures of uniforms and equipment, the other ones I recommend are Deutsche Soldaten  Heitai Japanese Army Inside the Allgemeine  SS.
         So now enough on World War II . Are next series will be on Romans Greeks  Willie
