The ramblings of a wargamer, originally up a valley in a wet and windy place and now back in civilisation.

I was fortunate to pick up this set of four books recently from Caliver books. The translation into English from the original Italian is pretty (very) dreadful, retaliation for the Bersaglieri character in 'Allo Allo' no doubt. Apart from that, once one cuts through the translation (and starts reading with an Italian accent) the content is excellent. Some great maps, orders of battle, information on the key generals and a description of the armies involved maksa dis a great set of reference books for anyone who, like me, has more than a passing interest in the Austro-Russian campaign against the French in northern Italy in 1799. A not a Bonapuarte in sight either.
