very true about trying to cover all nations in GNW but if it awakens interest in the period so much the better

Re: Battle of Glenshiel - Swiss ?

yes Helion bringing out great books for my favourite period, but have noticed that a couple of the translations a little awkward to read. there a couple of sellers on Ebay UK that have Helion books for sale at reduced prices also check out Naval & Military Press website as Helion books appear there ...
