Buying and Selling Wartime Collectables: An Enthusiast's Guide to Militaria
|INSIDE:||250 colour photographs|
Collecting militaria is a hobby that has grown enormously in recent years, spurred on by the burgeoning interest in the First and Second World Wars, and further fed by films, documentaries and re-enactments. The collecting scene has moved from the post-war army surplus stores to large dealers, international events and, above all, the internet.
Arthur Ward and Richard Ingram offer the benefit of their extensive knowledge and experience to guide you through the world of military collectables from badges, books and posters, to helmets, tunics and weapons, and enable you to start or enhance your own collection.
