    Uniform/gear reference books

    Post by Flecktarn92 on Sun Mar 27, 2011 4:39 pm

    I don't know about anyone else here but I constantly have a hard time deciphering which reference books are bad and which ones are worth owning. So I figured why not start a thread where people can talk about and post any books that have been helpful and which ones people should stay away from. I'll start with J.F. Borsarello and his two books on camouflage uniforms of NATO and Asia. Both are very good and helpful as far as determining what camouflages are used by the respected nations.

    EXCELLENT idea for a thread, good one !!

    Two books from my formative years , World Army Uniforms since 1939 published in 1973 by Mollo,Mcgregor,smith and Chappell.

    and Uniforms of the Elite forces, published 1982, by leroy Thompson.



    A more recent cool ref book of mine, Brassey's Book of camoflague,published 1996 by Tim Newwark, Quinten Newark,and Dr JF Borsello.

    Here are three of my favorite camouflage related books:

    Waffen-ss Camouflage Uniforms And Post-war Derivatives (Europa Militaria Series) [Paperback]Daniel Peterson (Author)

    Wehrmacht Camouflage Uniforms: And Post-War Derivatives (Europa Militaria) [Paperback]D Peterson (Author)

    These two books are very well written with lots of color photos of uniform. Post-War Derivatives include West German, East German, Romanian,Czech, Bulgarian, and Polish camo patterns.

    AIRBORNE ELITE: (1) RUSSIA´S AIR ASSAULT FORCE (CONCORD PUBLICATIONS) Yves Debay & James Hill (Authors)

    This book has lots of photos of post-Soviet airborne soldiers and equipment.

    For hungarian uniform books (although I don't know many of you are interested in books written in hungarian, but who knows?) check the www.huniform.com website.

    Another note: I still have a few copies from my old - published in 2000 - (and a little bit outdated) booklet of the history and evolution of hungarian camouflages. Written also in hungarian, but with english summary. If anybody thought he needed a copy, don't hesitate to contact me.
