What an effort! 712 pages of which I wrote about 100. Obscure items too numerous to mention are illustrated - like an army issue harmonica. If you're into Italian militaria, this is a must have book!

Available from Arditi Publishing through the Italian forum of gunboards. SW

My heritage is mostly Dutch - no Italian at all. By chance, I found myself with half a dozen Carcanos & realized I knew nothing about them. Over the period of several years, I became friends with big time collectors in Italy, bought everything I'd never seen or heard of before & shared information.

One thing led to another & if I may say so without sounding vain, I put together one of the better Italian rifle collections in the country.

Comrade Publisher got wind of the Italian forum here & after reading a couple of the detailed posts, he invited me to write a book on the topic with him.

My 4th book is at the printer & I've just dived in on #5 which relates to Japanese WW2 militaria.

Now if I could just sell fiction! ;) :crzy: :bigrin: SW
