Posted by: Amaral I really liked the WAR on the French Musketeers, I didn't know d'Artagnan really existed. Thanks to scratchbuilder for the suggestion. Recently, this video was translated from French to English: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNTVXrt2S_E

You suggested Warrior 168 French Musketeer 1622–1775 for me when it came out and I bought it. I just opened the package of Elite 136 World War II Airborne Warfare Tactics, also suggested by you.

I also have the Airborn Assault book, but I haven't started reading it yet. I am still ploughing my way through Hitler's Blitzkrieg Enemies. In the WWII Forum I have suggested a NVG on Finnish Artillery, which I suspect you would enjoy. The Musketeer book is good and I am glad you liked it. I suggested a suplimentary volume on the copycat units raised by other rulers, but I don't suppose anything will come of it.

I remember. I mentioned the idea was interesting but I would like to see a Warrior on the French and non-French Zuaves (Brazil had Zuaves too!). I am really liking Elite 136, especially because it shows the Soviet paratroopers. I will probably finish tomorrow.

Those Zouaves certainly got around, including Canada. A volunteer regiment of Canadian roman catholics fought for the papal states against Garibaldi during the risorgimento.

The Brazilian Imperial Army formed a Zouave unit composed of black volunteers from the province of Bahia in the War of the Triple Alliance (Paraguayan War). Those were soon disbanded because because the Brazilian military does not segregate soldiers for their skin colour, but they kept their uniforms.

Here we can see a Brazilian Zouave ("Zuavo Baiano"): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Zouave_Bresilienne_Guerre_du_Paraguay.jpg We can see some of them amid other soldiers: http://migre.me/hb8oJ Some model soldiers: 1 http://guiadoocio.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/zuavo_bahia1865_02.jpg 2 http://migre.me/hb8rt

In the late 19th century the British West India Regiment adopted a Zouave style uniform.



If anyone's interested the memoires of the Comte d'Artagnan are available in three volumes free from archive.
