So far, this week, I've finished reading two books.

First, was Osprey Elite #159: French Napoleonic Infantry Tactics 1792 - 1815, which I was reading for general interest, and it was generally interesting.

Then, there was Osprey Fortress #84: Chinese Walled Cities 221 BC - AD 1644 which has some very spectacular photography, as many of these walls still exist in China.

Overall, I find these Osprey releases to be chock full of information that stimulates my imagination. I'd recommend them to reinactors, gamers, or people with any interest in history.
