just seen that Helion have released the above title, saying it is a revised edition No43 in Century of the Soldier series, i was wondering if there is a substanial difference between the original title No2 in the series, if so what's new there? any info on content difference would be most appreciated, many thanks in advance

landed this morning Helion No 41 Armies and Wars of the Sun King by Rene Chartrand, only had a quick look through, brilliant work, great illustrations

cheers Old John

Hi,
the second edition of Marlborough's other army has received some slight editing and has 8 new colour plates with contextual notes by Mark Allen.

I'm working on Rene's second volume now- it will be out before Christmas, with a third volume on the French line cavalry out by May 2020.

There is lots more late 17th/early 18th century stuff due out of course
