Magasin de Presse
The holidays are coming to an end and I've trawled the newsagents for reference material as usual before we head back home. There's some good stuff here including a couple of magazines that I don't usually collect, GBM and Uniformes, the former covering the use of armour in Indochina between the wars and the latter including a comprehensive guide to the uniforms and equipment of the French army at Verdun. It also has a feature on the camouflage patterned 1947 combat fatigues used in the French-Indochina War, which would be very useful as a guide for painting figures. They really do have some cracking magazines and no shortage of interesting, inspirational reading material even if your French is pretty rusty like mine.
