    It can be confusing as both books that have similar titles, and by the same primary author. One of them is essentially a photo book of Polish military uniforms from the 17th century until just after WW2 whereas the other is a detailed study of the various uniforms and their components during the 2nd Republic era. Both books are well worth owning.

    Are the uniforms pictured in the book orginal?
    But anyway I wish I was the proud owner of the rare wz.17 officers uniform and wz.19 rogatywka shown in the book!

    I'd like to have a copy of each but I don't have a method to purchase these from Poland. I saw a copy on ebay but the price seemed too high.

    I think the uniform you seen on ebay was a post-war KBW uniform,Its a bad copy as it has 5 buttons instead of 7 and a couple of other problems.It was expensive as on Allegro.pl they go for 40 pln while that one went for $70!
    Heres a list of vendors on the link
