    I cannot say anything about the second one, but the first one by Davies is a good book to learn from. I have it too.

    Iv read the Warmans price guide book and found it good for a general over view of all things ww2 and has plenty of photos of militaria.
    the down side is theres not much detail on each item and if you havnt got the latest edition the prices are outdated.
    still it kept me occupied for a few hours

    regards Paul

    Hi Patrick.

    Brian L Davis' book is a good all round reference book,
    You wont go far wrong with it as a guide. (Like a lot of us on the forums, I've also got a copy)
    If you can get a copy in good condition and at a fair price then go for it.
    Like the others, I cant comment on Warmans price guide.

    Regards etc

    Try an internet search for the author Gordon Williamson. He has written some excellent reference books. Also, go to www.ironcross1939.com

    I agree ! Even check out the work he has done with Osprey publishing, I have about a dozen of his!

    Any books from here are excellent:

    Ironcross 1939 - Home of B&D Publishing

    Brian's book is excellent. An old book but still the "bible" as the best basic reference guide.

    Cheers, Ade.
