Grosset Uniformen book / book / livre

Een betere titel zou zijn 'Engelse Uniformen vanaf 1688, eigenlijk vanaf 1703, plus ook nog van degenen die ook wel eens een oorlog hadden, en voor de fans ook nog Duitsers!'.
Meh dus.


A better title for this book would be 'English uniforms from the year 1688, but actually from 1703, plus some Frogs, Krauts and Yanks thrown in for good measure'. Meh.

2 opmerkingen:

  1. Or as an alternative title, The Book that Started Me Off on a Lifetime of Interest in Military Uniforms and History.

    Someone bought me that same book when I was about 10 years old, and I've been fascinated by late 17th and 18th C. wars ever since. I still have my well-worn copy.

    For that reason I cherish it, and will forgive it all it's generalizations and inaccuracies.

  2. Well, of course it's a nice book! But there's so much out there! :-)

    (My version of your tale would be the dutch version of Mollo's books on WW2 uniforms, they are still on sale now for some reason.)
