    Well have been working on some Elephants and Just got  Against Deluge Polish and Lithuanian  Armies  1655-1660 form Helion and Company My next one will be The Army of the Manchu Empire 1600-1727 , Of Kerns and Gallowglasses the Irish Armies 16th Century , French Armies of the Thirty years War.  At the present time I have a back order of there books so if you go to there page and type in Armies or Uniforms you can see what's coming. The other day a friend of mine asked me why I buy these types of books and I said I used them to paint with :o  both Paper and Hard Back.  I would say most of us do that and add on how to mix colors. So let me Know what you think. Willie

   John.  First Osprey has a history of the Franco  German War the historical side of the War. As for Uniforms Osprey Men at Arms has German and French Armies  Next would be the two printed by Helion & Company  Saarbruck to Sedan the Imperial Phase of the war ,The Republic Fights Back the Republic Phase of the War. These are two new books with lots of Information on both Armies . If you have deep pockets then Verlag Militaria  For older stuff try Tradition Magazine the Fucken Series on Armies of the 19th century.  Willie

What specifically are the two volumes on the Franco Prussian War 1870-71?  Is that an Osprey reference?
