I found the dandy 1859 one by Luigi Casali, and intend to get it. People say that there's several other good ones, and I'd be happy to know their names so I can search around the OOP industry.

Redshirts also by Casali is also a good booklet for the various Italian states (Piedmont, Papal, Naples and Garibaldini).

There is a very good one on the Maximillian Adventure in Mexico

I think I've got a copy of the Maximillian one somewhere if you're interested?

My memory must be getting old. I was just down rummaging around through my collection of Really Useful Wargaming Books. I thought they were all Freikorps books, but turns out a lot are other companies. They all look the same – little black and white photocopies, colour paper B&W covers, stapled. The poor man's WRG books.

Looking through them, it is a damn shame they are all (I imagine) out of print. They all had a short history, painting information, battles, army OOBs…everything distilled down to just what a wargamer needs. You know, if John Curry is reading this, perhaps he should track down the copyright holders and add them to his History of Wargaming project.

Anyway, specific to Freikorps, I have the 1859 book, both German and French books for 1870, Maximillian and the Great Paraguayan War. All very useful!

What are the titles and author for the German and French 1870 books? It's pretty hard to search without knowing that.


Someone said that they got one from Caliver books, mabe this:
Armies of 1870 Paperback 1991 by C. A Sapherson
