Armies of the Seven Years War.
Obviously I have yet to read it,but just by flicking through the 300+ pages,I can see its been worth the wait to buy.
Under his alter ego, Otto Von Pivka, Digby Smith produced a classic book for Napoleonic war gamers.
That book had everything one needed to get started painting uniforms,when there was a bit of a shortage in information.
This time he has gone better. All the nations of the conflict are listed,describing their respective uniforms,and brief histories.Including the small German states, Portugal and Sweden.Also included is information about the equipment used etc.
To give even more value for money,brief histories of some of the commanders are included,and best of all some orders of battle with decent illustrations to help.
War gamers are so lucky at times, officially priced at £30.00p but with discounts I bought it for twenty,how can one be robbed!
Its beats £60 for the Games Workshop World War Two rules,and the average £30.00 for war games rules. Cant wait for bedtime.
