Yes, Christoph it is the Wagner's work.
I have it in German language, bought at the and of the 1970's years "Ars Bella Gerendi" was the title at that time.
Really an amazing work on the soldiers life of the TYW time.

Hello Willie,
is "European Weapons & Warfare 1618-1648" written by Eduard Wagner? If yes this is a reprint of an old book from around 1960 and still one of the best books you can get on this subject!

 From a Bunker hidden deep in the Earth of VA I bring my latest book up date. I now have a copie of European Weapons & Warfare 1618-1648 HB to replace my PB one. The Art work in much better in this book ;D Next is Outline of English Costume By Doreen; Yarwood, A nice little book for English Costumes. Now for are 19th century American painters  American Horse Drawn Vehicles By Jack D Rittenhouse . I went threw this and showed my Daughter. Most of the equipment I had seen as a kid . As' I got older I cleaned them and my Dad let me drive a couple. I think that I knew ever wagon in  Western Movies.  :o If you are interested go on the Web and look for Fat Jones Stables. Last is Hinterland Warriors; and Military Dress By Thomas S Abler.. So that's about it for now hope you are keeping safe and are in good health. Yes I would go back to work in the movies with my Father ;D in a heart beat.Willie
