Osprey will be working from home from Tuesday 17th March. We plan to continue all our operations, while reducing risk of infection by having staff work from home. Please note that we are doing our best to manage incoming post and parcels. For the time being please refrain from sending items to our offices and please assume that items that you have sent to us, have not arrived with their intended recipient. Our priority remains the wellbeing of staff, authors, customers, freelancers, suppliers and distributors. We would like to thank all for their support whilst we transition to virtual operations.

I cannot believe that Osprey is continuing to make MAA 33: U.S. Cavalry available. This 40-year old title is riddled with errors and faulty scholarship the worst being "no record of engagements" for the Light Dragoons in the War of 1812 when there was at least a troop present at most every battle since the two regiments rarely fielded as complete units. The Light Dragoon uniform is also illustrated incorrectly as grey instead of blue. More errors abound including the 4th Cavalry being Custer's command at Little Big Horn, General Wainwright escaping from the Phillppines when he spent 1942-45 as a Japanese POW, the 1860 cavalry sabre used as a sword-bayonet (A whaaaaat?) as well as the bugler depicted in Plate D being total fiction as the U.S. Army no longer dressed musicians in reverse colors since the 1851 regulations came into effect. About the only thing I can give this book credit for is one of the few correct illustrations of the 6th Pennsylvania Cavalry aka Rush's Lancers in showing field dress and not the shoulder scales/dark blue trousers which did not last beyond the first campaign. This book is a bad joke and should no longer be circulated.
