So now to get back to work. :o The third book by Gozo Somogyi  arrived yesterday and I am very pleased with it. This covers the Hungarian Soldiers in the World Wars 1914-1918,1939-1945 . It covers a lot of information and lots and lots of color plates. Not only uniforms but the Navy, Trains , Planes, River Guard, Red Regiments from the 20's World War II is covered very well. The next ones are going to be The Army of Transylvania 1559-1690 :o wonder if that comes with fangs or look into my eyes ??? . The Hungarian Military 1768-1848, Royal Hungarian Defense Force 1868-1914. Hungarian Flags. So we have a wide range of stuff for the painter. Most of these are paper back if you want a hard back, Then try the hardback book by Verlag Militaria and have deep pockets :o Willie

Hi Willie,
yes you are right.
Gyozo Somogyi is a well decorated Hungarian graphic artist and painter and really he made a series of richly and vividly illustrated booklets that cover the main periods of the Hungarian warfare  (dresses) up to 1848.
E.g. on this link you can find a vendor (or course there are several ones):
http://www.magyarmenedek.com/products/9551/Matyas_kiraly_hadserege_1458-1526_-_Somogyi_Gyozo.htm
They are English.
The prices vary about 8-10 Euro each.
According to my  judgement they are useful for those who are interested in these topics.
The booklets have more pictures and less text than the Osprey.
Unfortunately a part of the booklets are sold out, so one can hunt up them second hand only.
If you have some particular interest I can check or help to find the book.
Best regards-
Sandor

  I have a question for are members who live in Hungary? Do you know of a series of books by Gyozo Somogyi they say that there are like Ospreys both in Hungarian and English. How would rate them. Second question is The Chota Sepoy still being printed? it was a series on the Indian Army it was from The British Model Soldier Society.  Willie

  Roger and Gerry. The man cave took a bet of time and is a bet of a tight fit but it came out good :o My work bench had to move to the garage witch  worked out well. I have a nice table witch I covered with a sheet of plexiglas :o so if I spill anything I can clean it up. I have small desk draw box where I store my tools and paint. So when I am done painting its packed away and I cover my lights and Put my work under a large glass cloche to keep the dust of it :o. For the book I do not have it, but I would like to get it. I have one on the Mexican Army called the Mexican Soldier 1837-1847 by Joseph Hefter  was print in 1958 and reprinted in 2008. While I was staying at my wifes daughter house weighting to move into are condo. I received some books that I had on order.
  The first one An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Uniforms of World War II. The book is  designed to take a look at uniforms of the different powers. Do too space limitations ,Air forces and Navies ,Partisans, Guerrillas, where left out.  Other wise I think its is a great book to use when painting. I wish these guys would come out on one about the 7 years war. Second from Andrea is US Elite Forces Uniforms, Equipment and personal Items Vietnam 1965-1975. This is a outstanding book lots of stuff in it about uniforms, some of which I had when I was over there and witch are now in the Virginia War Museum at New Port News. Third and one of the most interesting books I have read it War on the Waters by James M. McPherson . I was reading this book for a talk I was going to give at the Civil War Round Table Society of Pam Beach FL. If any of you are interested in the Civil War this is the book covers the Union and Confederate Navies 1861-1865. Also I checked it out from the Libray :o :o Willie

 Happy New Year to you all  ;D I am now in the Man Cave smaller then I had before but it will do. Last year was a strange one for new books coming out :o It seemed like they would never come and some it took almost a whole year. My next thing well be a talk about the Union Navy in the Civil War at the Civil War Round Table.  I will let you know how that goes. At the end of this month will be the South Florida Toy Soldier Club show. Willie

Hi gang ;D Just one more month and we are in the Condo  ;D,but this has not stopped me from ordering books and having them delivered  to my step Daughters house in FL. First off for all you British Army Equipment fans out there British Military Respirators & Anti Gass Equipment of the two World Wars brand new . Second and a very nice book is Das Kuk 1895 The Imperial Army by Oska Buch in German but the color work in the back of the book is great. Now the last one is By Andrea publishing about the US Special Forces in Vietnam outstanding book with lots and lots of color on uniforms and equipment. Willie
