Here is a new book on the Battle of Helsingborg: "Det ulykkelige slag"
by Karsten Skjold Petersen. This looks like it will be good. A reviewer compares it favorably with England's book on Poltava and Oscar Sjostrom's book on Fraustadt. If this is true, it's high praise, indeed.

Barry, let's make those Danes you are promising! And the Swedish Cavalry, of course!

Intresting, The question is, should I get it in Danish(I find it quite tiresome to read Danish over a long period)

Upon looking at my thread title, is see that my autocorrect was set to German! My apologies.

Anyway, I get these books regardless of language because there is very little in English.

Well, I got the book last week- very quick service from Denmark to the U.S. - and it looks pretty good. There are lots of photos of paintings, weapons and equipment, many in color, OOBs, good maps and extensive sources references. Of course, it is in Danish, which I decipher more than actually read, but it is likely to be the only modern book on the subject for quite some time, so I would recommend it to readers of Scandinavian languages and anyone else with an interest in the battle who wants to use a good Danish/English dictionary.

If an American tries to get through the book with help from a dictionary.
I guess I can work my way through it too.

Hopefully I'll be able to help you with anything you might not quite get.

Generally the Danish and norwegian I speak use most of the same words.

But the sentence structure is different.

I see they have the book in norwegian book stores so I'll but it once I get my pay.
