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

 My Osprey Man At Arms Yugoslavian Army 1945-1945 came and its nice and well done.  The next two that I want to see are Medeval Indian Armys Hindu. Buddhist . 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

 So I went to the Casemate page and found this information  Between 1940-1945  The Diamond T Motor Car Company supplied just over 50.000 Vehicles to the US Military and also the Allies  Off this just over 30,000 were heavy 4 ton 6x6 of various types  They also made the famous halftrack 10,000 produced

Well my Armies of Julius Caesar came today and I like it a lot. There is one color plate B2 of  a Celtic Auxiliary Cavalryman Britannia 54 BC . What makes this guy so interesting is his Helmet I have never seen this kind :o  They state that it was found in West Sussex  and on page 45 they have a reconstruction of it in the Novium Museum Chichester  I think it would make a neat figurer  Willie
