Two new exceptional volumes from Helion this week. I’ve only just got them so I will do a bit of a review when I’ve read them both (tbh I’ve already devoured the Piedmont book but you will have to wait). All I will say is that for a wargamer’s perspective these books fill a massive gap in the information available on their subjects. Ok, 1680’s Piedmontese is perhaps a bit off piste for some but not for me as I’ve just finished my 1670s/80s 28mm Savoyard army. As for the Dutch, well as readers will know I have more than a passing interest in the Franco-Dutch War 1672-78 and lots of little men as well. Tremendous, and the promise of more to come in a similar vien is mouth-wateringly good.
