Does anyone  of are French members know what is going on with Histoire & Collections  ??? Every time I go onto there web page I get that they are off the web and reworking it :o I tried Casemate  in the states and they told me that they had changed owner ship. :o Also that some of there books they where advertising would not be sold here in the states. I was able to pick up a old book Military Bands and there Uniforms. It was printed in 1978 by Blandford Press. Some good information about bands. Willie

Well it came today The War of the Triple Alliance,or the Paraguayan 1864-1870 by Gabriele Esposito.  One of the longest Wars in South America and one of the most deadliest wars in the 19th century. The art work is out standing  :o done by Giuseppe Rava who has done illustrations for Osprey. Printed by Wing Hussar Publishing. I have another one of there books about the 30 years war. They did a outstanding job on this. I hope this is the start for bigger and better books from them. The following countries are covered Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay. Along with the Osprey Men at Arms Series on this period of history you can paint a lot of interesting figures.  :o Willie

Ok today I received one of my birthday presents. Riding into the Twilight.  This book covers a lot of  information on the German Army's Last Cavalryman 1920-45 . I know that my farther would have liked this books since he was in the First Cavalry Division 7th Cav in World War  II . His division was mounted until they went over seas to Australia. They also patrolled the border  :o I like it because of all the horse equipment in great detail, and the formation information in it. It is printed by Tiger III Books ???   Its not cheap but if you are interested in Cavalry its worth it 8) Willie

Well it came today :o Horse Archers Weapons Vol 1 by Gyozo Somogyi   8) Lots and lots of color in it  and equipment clothing, harness, weapons and flags. So lets start with what it covers Scythian-Saka People  4th-1th century BC. Parthian  People 1st BC-3rd AD . Sasanian Persian Empire 3rd-7th centuries. The Hun Empire in the 5th century. The Avars in the 6th-9th. centuries. Sogdia & Khorezm 7th-8th centuries. The Turk & Uigurian people in the 8th century. Tibet in the 8th century. Chines in the service of Tibet. Last is the Kyrgyz just one print but I think it well more in Vol 2 . If you are looking for something else to paint you have a open section to choose from ::) I wish that they made some sets of these people  ;D So now off to order Vol 2 :o I think that there are two more books on medieval Knights in Hungry  :o Willie

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
