You are here: Home Bibliography



Please find below, a random list of books and magazines that provided me a helpful hand in drafting the reviews included on this website as well as at painting and converting the figures.  

As mentioned, there is a selective bibliography and I would like to apologies to the authors the books I skipped without intention.

Nevertheless, except these books, a large number of weapon manuals, war reports, KStNs as well as studying of thousands of photos, watching of war documentaries and journals as well as internet brought an immense contribution not only to the information enclosed within reviews, but also to the painting and conversion activities carried out on the here featured figures.
