03:19 pm Restful. That was yesterday. Among other things done, I completed two books I was reading:
First was Osprey Warrior #135: North Vietnamese Army Soldier 1958 – 75. Now, they were the enemies of my country in my youth; to see them described in some detail in this fashion is a bit disconcerting. Not a bad read.
Second was Osprey Men-at-Arms #176: Austrian Army of the Napoleonic Wars (1): Infantry, getting back on the Napoleonic bandwagon that so much of the Osprey books seem to deal with. In any case, I learned a few things in here. Most of my previous reading about these wars deal primarily either with the French or the British, but Austria was a major player and enemy of France, and this book deals fairly well with the mainstay infantry formations of that war. Not bad at all.
