    Well today one book that I had wanted for a very long time came The Men of Warre  The clothes, Weapons, and  Accoutrements of the Scots at War1460-1600 By Jenn Scott . Not a big book page wise ,but still lots of information on the subject. It covers from 15th century to 17th century. Also two volumes on the French and German War 1870-71. Lots of uniforms and information on that war. Willie

Am waiting on Helion's publication of House's Lost Opportunity.  Always fascinated on the Great War's Battle of Frontiers after reading Keegan's August 1914 from Ballantine.

    Well some news first of all I left my book Merchant Ships in Color at a friends house and he put it next to books on U Boat's and it sunk ::)  Today my copy of The Ottoman Army of the Napoleonic Wars came 1784-1815 The struggle for survival from Egypt to the Balkans. BY Bruno Mugnai This Author is very good on his subjects.  The next two books of his are Wars and Soldiers in the Early Reign of Louis XIV volume 6 Part two the Italian Armies1660 -1690 and number 7 German Troops. This is a nice series. Willie

    I found these two books and thought they would be nice to have. First is Pirate of the Far East 811-1639 by Stephen Turnbull Osprey series. I think everyone knows this author for his books on Armies of the Far East.  Since there are a lot of Samurai figures you could have a nice group of Pirates. Next is a Macmillan Color Series on Merchant Ships of the World in Color1910-1929 By Laurence Dunn these series where printed in the 60s-70s  Willie
