Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
I was 10 when I heard the song "More tea vicar" in an AM radio, by the way a melody I didn't know his authorship and name. This melody has accompanied me throughout my life. My surprise was great when I knew it was a symphonic rock group called "Mainhorse" (many years later.)
Books in the Osprey Campaign series span military history from the ancient world to modern times. Napoleonic battles, American Civil War battles, World War I battles and World War II battles are all analysed, as are the major military engagements of the American Revolution, the medieval period, and the 16th to 19th centuries. With full colour 3-D birds-eye-views, battle scenes and maps as well as colour and black and white photographs the Osprey Campaigns series provides an important reference resource for history enthusiasts, academics and wargamers.
