Fahnen und Standarten

Postie has just dropped this book on my doorstep. Bought from Caliver Books, this German language tome has enough English titles and captions that even I can understand it.

Combining all published ECW flag reference books in one handy volume. Flags illustrated are referenced to their original source. They are represented in full colour: split into Parliamentarian, Royalist, Irish and Covenator sections, and are then ordered in trained band/militia, infantry and horse sections.

Flags are listed in alphabetical order, with a number of flags listed as 'unknown'. Where only remnants remain (ed) such as Prince Rupert's, then alternative interpretations are also shown. Also, where sources disagree on the layout of markers for 4th captain, say, both options are illustrated.

So far, I've only had a cursory look, nor have I tried to translate the introduction, but this looks very very good.

  1. Excellent blog and so informative, incredibly inspiring, that I have started a 28mm (the devil's own scale) in Pike & Shot! The book above, would you know where I can purchase a copy? Is there a link you could provide? Many thanks Mark
