The first one was Nebeltruppen. The author kindly sent me a copy because he used some pictures of some eagles of mine. Great book. Tough branch to find insignia for and there was some nice pieces in the book. Some great uniform shots too. Vehicles and equipment used throughout the war. It is in French but you can still see the pictures. Excellent Book.

The next one is in Italian and was well worth the money(Shipping from Europe killed me!) Bevevano E Mangiavano covers almost every style of canteen used by the German armed Forces in WWII. It also covers messkits. The quanity of photos of specific items is unbelieveable only to be outmatched by the quality of the photoa. Clear and concise shots. I must for the equipment enthusiast.

Then I picked up Werner's new book on the German Padded Winter Uniforms. Another outstanding piece of work. Great description, photos and line drawing, not to mention period photos. Fantastic section on buttons, materials and construction. Make me comfortable looking for a Padded uniform.

Last but not least is Vincent Siegers book. Winter uniforms of the German Army and Luftwaffe. Another outstanding book on this tough subject. As with the last three books, this one also has great clear and concise photos, great descriptions and fantastic text. The chapter on manufacture is great

I only have the Vincent Siegers book. I really enjoy that one and it's my Pelzmantel that is depicted in the book
The Padded Winter Uniforms is on my wishlist. Looks very good.

The canteens book and the Nebeltruppen book I both want but prefer to wait for English versions....if these ever come?!

A lot of new reading material, you'll get through the winter with these
Some of these are also still on my own wishlist.

Kind regards,
