Just got this today Zweybrucken in Command The Reichsarmee in the Campaign of 1758 By Helion & Company  By Neil Cogswell . Its a nice book with lots of information on these Armies. The Uniform plates are from that era with a section on uniforms of the different states. With all the 7 years War figures there are you could have a nice selection  8)  Willie

Jain  Italian Colonial Army You can see these both on the Osprey page Man At Arms. Next from Helion & Company Saarbruck to Sedan  The Franco German War 1870-1871 Volume 1 the Imperial Phase of the War nice and lots of information on the German Army . The Second volume 2 well come out in March 22 The Republic Fights Back I well say one thing about Helion & Company they have some of the most interesting books on the 16th 17th 18th 19th century and there other series  are nice to.  There are two major things about warfare in the 16-18th century . Money and food  :o you had to have deep pockets ;D  Willie
