Osprey COMBAT A versus B
« on: May 15, 2020, 05:48:28 PM »
Osprey do a set of titles about 2 opponents. They are called "COMBAT".
e.g  Jagdpanther V SU100

I have recently read
1. Panzergrenadier V US aroured infantry
2. Sioux warrior V US cavalryman
3.Samurai v ashigaru.

I think  they are great. They give a  good overview of that period of warfare.  All in 80 pages. I fid they make great reading whilst in waiting rooms. Other waiters often try to see what i am reading as the covers look good.
Anyone else have opinions or experiences of these?

I got the US vs. Japanese infantry one as a free Osprey download during their recent series of lockdown offers.

Well worth the money  8)

And good views of the figures, from front and back.

I have yet to read anything (I always like to look at the pictures first).

Like Simon, I always look at the pictures first!
I started reading Roman Soldier vs Germanic Warrior but never finished it, what I read was interesting.

I am an avid collector of the combat series.  I’m almost ashamed to admit I have them all.

I have found the Russian infantry v, Japanese infantry 1904/5 to be extremely useful.
