First was Campaign #122: Tannenberg 1410: Disaster for the Teutonic Knights, poor quality art. Second was Elite #178: Hatamoto: Samurai Horse and Foot Guards 1540 - 1724, good information and art. Third was Elite #167: Scottish Renaissance Armies 1513 - 1550, good art, interesting background information. Fourth was Campaign #204: The Second Crusade 1148: Disaster Outside Damascus, poor quality art, fair information, good maps, interesting photography at the battle sites. Fifth was Fortress #73: Hittite Fortifications c.1650 - 700 BC, good graphics, off beat topic about which I knew only a little.
On the other hand, I stopped reading a novel that had been recommended to me, called Old Soldiers Sometimes Lie by Richard Hoyt, because I just couldn't tolerate the attempts at characterization. It was supposedly about the gold gathered by Japanese forces in China and other areas and what happened to it after WWII.
