'Marlborough's Danish Troops' - article from Military Modelling

In the middle of a big sort out, I came across an article in the Feb 1988 issue of Military Modelling which might be of interest. The article is titled "Marlborough's Danish Troops" and consists of four pages of text written by Capt Gert Miller & one page of colour illustrations by Bob Marrion. I al...

Re: Wanted: details of Spanish horse regt c.1680

>>>did they wear cuirasses in 1680?

It sounds as though they did. The above source includes the following :

Re: Wanted: details of Spanish horse regt c.1680

I have a soft copy of "The Spanish Armies in the War of the League of Augsburg" by GianCarlo Boeri, Jose Luis Mirecki & Jose Palau. This provides a picture of the Osuna Cavalry Regiment (which, I think, is the one included in Chema1986's post). The description is as follows : Light grey/white coat, ...

Re: Question on English horse

My understanding is : a. They were the same Regiment (with the Earl of Oxford as their Colonel between 1661 and 1688). The nickname derives from the unique colour of their coats; b. In his excellent book "The Army of James II", Stephen Ede-Borrett confirms that the Trumpeters were granted the privil...

Re: The Bavarian Army During the Thirty Years War, 1618-1648

Many thanks for the update - definitely one for next month. I do find the shift in release dates frustrating but the books are normally worth the wait. Looking at both the 'Century of the Soldier' and the 'Reason to Revolution' series, there are so many books of interest. Need to sell a kidney to af...
