I posted some of these awhile back but can’t seem to find them (old forum) so here it goes:

MAA British Battle Insignia (3) 1945-Present- Mike Chappell’s earlier works were excellent. With the current plethora of TRFs would a third book be in order explaining the progression from 1945 ?

Elite The South African Defence Force 1957-1994- I have suggested this before and with Helion publishing/re-publishing SADF/Border War books I think the market is out there.

MAA The South West Africa Territory Force 1975-1989- a companion to the Elite title above. I have only found one complete history of the organization and it’s in German.

MAA Cuban Forces in Africa 1975-1991- Cuban forces were involved in many African conflicts, most notably Angola. However they also intervened in Ethiopia, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, and Equatorial Guinea.

CAM Cuito Cuanavale 1987-88: Operations Modular to Prone- “The Last Battle of the Cold War” deserves a Osprey treatment. A Chapter should include Cuban plans for an invasion of SWA & SA’s response (Operation Prone)

Elite The Military Bagpipe- Again I mentioned this title a while back. Perhaps a history of the bagpipe and it’s martial use. Then famous incidents of pipers in battle (Findlater at Dargai, Laidlaw at Loos, Millen at Normandy, etc)

Finally I would like to see something on the Indian/Pakistani Armies Post Independence.Perhaps some Campaign Titles on 1947, 1965, 1971, and 1999 ? An Elite Title on each would be nice also.

I particularly support your suggestion for MAA British Battle Insignia (3) 1945-Present

All really interesting ideas. I'd be interested in buying most books on British Empire and Commonwealth troops.

Some good suggestions.  I wonder if a essential histories might be a better bet than 4 campaign books on the indian - Pakistan to test the water first?
