Book on the armies of 1672-79

If you are wondering how you're going to find out more about the armies of the period of Mark Copplestone's new range of figures don't worry - help is at hand. Dan Schorr who we all know from his excellent Northern Wars site is preparing a book on the uniforms and colours of the armies of the 1672-79 period. I'm really looking forward to it.

Excellent. And Dan's GNW site is one of the best period resources on the web.

I don't want to get anyone's hopes up that anything will be available in the near future. I have been working on the Brandenburgers 1672-79, and I'm in the process of doing illustrations for them. Other armies are more difficult, as information on colours and standards, as well as uniforms is difficult to come by. I would appreciate hearing from anyone that runs across something for this period. Ralph's constant search for contemporary illustrations is wonderful as one can see the cut of the uniform.
