It really does come earlier every year.....or is it just another age thing that I am no longer immune to?!

So I have done my usual trawling through Amazon to find a book to buy myself and then dutifully hand over to be wrapped and given back to me on Christmas morn.  This year I have gone for Pawly's Red Lancers tome.  I have had the book in my hands a few times and always decided not to get it but as there is nothing else catching my eye this year (well within price region anyway) I decided that I would go for this one.  The Red Lancers

The Red/Dutch lancers have always been an interesting regiment and it's quite an in depth book with plenty of detail regarding make up, campaigns etc.  Also a few nice little potted biographies re: some of it's members.  Overall a nice little book to add to my collection.  I'm sure it will get read one day...........I'm still working my way through Anatomy Of Glory that I got two Christmas' ago.

Of course while I was ordering I just had to get myself a little something to keep me going until Christmas!  And I had to stop myself from buying a couple of Franco-Prussian War uniform books aswell.  I need help!!

I also noted that you can purchase some of Mr Courcelles originals from The Red Lancer website....a mere $950 and upwards.....although sorely tempted, I did resist. Here's a link if you fancy some major retail therapy.
