I had a chance to find and pick up some more Osprey books this weekend, allowing me to wallow in them and read them in the last two days; they are listed below. However, first I finished the new David Drake novel, When the Tide Rises, another book in the Leary series of space operas. Nice read.

The Ospreys include Warrior #81: Hungarian Hussar 1756 - 1815; someday, maybe, forestcats might make me a hussars uniform for some sort of costume, and we'll need research materials for it. Then, Warrior #115: Condottiere 1300 - 1500: Infamous Medieval Mercenaries might just be useful at some point in my Rolemaster game, were it ever to occur again. Then, New Vanguard #132: Ancient Greek Warship: 500 - 322 BC IS useful, since most of the navies in my world use triremes and quinqueremes. Great materials in this, including photos of aship recently built to the standards of the time. Then, Fortress #47: Fortifications of the Incas: 1200 - 1531 gives me some ideas for mountainous wizard's keeps and what-not. Then, it was off to more modern times with Elite #156: World War II Combat Reconnaissance Tactics which was very interesting. Next was Warrior #125: Pirate of the Far East: 811 - 1639, which I have no doubt will be rifled through for campaign ideas. Finally, Fortress #67: Japanese Castles in Korea 1592 - 98 will be more of the same, as I have thoughts of sending my players into a China/Japan/Korea place in my world.
