For the benefit of authors (and budding authors) what subjects/topics, related to our period of interest, would you like to see new books cover in the future?

;) I think we need a new series of uniform books, after all there are so many uniform plates sold down through ther years, and so few turned into books.
As one who does not like buying individual plates, I would buy decent books of uniform detail and or battle art.
Military Histoty Press have a fine book called "Napoleon On Campaign" Rocco.
Historie and Collections are near the mark in my opinion.....
For of all sad words of mouth or pen, the saddest are these, it might have been........

This'll probably sound boring but I could do with more detail of army 'Administration' - staff, commissariat, provosts, communications, postal service etc. There are bits of information in various books but much seems haphazard with no defined avenue of co-operation betwee services, which there must have been.

For instance, Napoleon and Iberia by Donald Horward gives a good insight on how the French organised themselves (or otherwise) in terms of local administation and supply chains during the seiges of Almeida and Cuiadad Rodrigo, but I've not found anything comparable on the British side.

This isn't a new book, but a collection of the letters of General FP Robinson. Does anyone have access to it?

A Peninsular Brigadier: Letters of Major-General Sir F.P. Robinson, K.C.B.

I've already checked abebooks and came up empty.

a good book on the Swedish army of the period, including uniform information. For it's size, it is probably the most neglected army by uniform experts and historians.

Hi

As a wargamer and model figure painter I could really use a comprehensive book on French and Russian uniforms, I have a really good for for he British but have thus far been unable to find a really good source. I have all get 'osprey' type books and quite a few more besides but if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated!

Cheers
Darren
