Looks good. I'm an Osprey fan, although I hate their new website. Sometimes improvements ain't all that.





Collecting WWII Armor and Tank Destroyer Items

Unfortunately for a while now most new Osprey books have been let down by their illustrations.


I have become a little fed up with this, so much so that I have elected not to buy a number of titles that I was looking forward to seeing, such as "The Poilu".

I did buy the "Bay of Pigs" but was also disappointed with the illustrations.


Don't get me wrong Osprey has a few good illustrators such as Mike Chappell, Ron Volstad and Martin Brayley.

However with the increased numbers of books being published, the 3 aforementioned illustrators are being supplemented by a number of lesser illustrators.

Written contributor to French Militaria Magazine, UK World War II Re-enactors Magazine &The Karkee Web Research Team.

With Osprey, you get what you pay for. I understand that the bibliography is interesting.


I'll wait for Les Hughes' OSS book, thank you.
