Renaissance Armies 1480-1650

By George Gush

An invaluable primer for an increasingly popular wargames period, by one of the luminaries of the genre. Details costume, troop-types, units and standards for each of the main protagonists. Highly recommended.

Patrick Stephens Ltd

The Encyclopedia of Military Vehicles

Books on AFVs are ten a penny but this one deals with the unglamorous workhorses - trucks, tractors, jeeps, and other softskins that are rarely featured.

Highly readable account of the 1866 campaign in Bohemia in which the Prussian army under Moltke drove the Austrian Empire and its allies to surrender.

Great descriptions and art work

Lorenz Books

Weapons of World War II

By Alexander Ludeke

From AFVs to major warships and everything in between of all nations. It's a useful all in one publication, easy to read with good graphics. A solid source book for anyone wanting an oversight on the direction each nation took with regards to weaponry.
