Oh yes indeedy!
Take a look at the goodies above! Freshly arrived this morning courtesy of a very smooth transaction these will provide a welcome reinforcement to the book shelves.
I am rather taken by the Official History of Operations in Persia - especially with the fold out maps - and although it will be a dry read will certainly have plenty of ideas. The two Marlburian titles will be very useful for my planned WSS WoFun outing and the Chinese naval book will give me some ideas for the pre dreadnought phase of my building project. Allenby’s War I have owned before but sadly is one of those titles that mysteriously vanished from the collection some years ago. Tip and Run covers the Great War in Africa and this is a subject that partially inspired the famous Madasahatta campaign. Finally the WW1 air title will be handy to have when I drag out my copy of Richthofen’s War or Aces High to play at some point.
The above came about as the result of some of my recent disposals and so represent another example of churning through my collection. Going in the opposite direction was a few non Waterloo Napoleonic titles. There is a further disposal that is worthy of mention.
The 30mm Spencer Smith ACW collection has moved on. In fact, it has gone home which is only fitting and so Old Painter Bob will be taking the collection to the next level in ways that I could not have.
All is well.
