Hi Nick,

Fantastic! Absolutely a must have for some of us without question. Now my friend, how does one go about obtaining a copy of this excellent work? I'm lucky in that Valentina can read about 95% of written Bulgarian and I can acquire a dictionary if necessary to cover the last 5%.


Thank you for sharing this with us!


Warmest regards,


JPS

Hello Gents,

Still can't thank you enough Nick. This is an excellent work on a subject that is rather obscure in terms of English language sources. In my case, I'm fortuneate in that Valentina can translate passages for me on an as required basis. But I would imagine that with today's translation programs, you should be able to glean enough accurate information.

There are lots of photos and beautiful artists illustrations of the various uniforms and their evolution over time. It was in this book that I found confirmation that the Bulgarian ferashka I acquired from Brian Calkins is indeed a WWI example and NOT a later issue version, as was suggested by our good budy and fellow Forum member deadjune.

Well worth the money IMHO. Best of luck Darrell. Always a pleasure Bud.

Warmest regards,

John

Hello Gents,

You are spot on BC. This is why Collectors or Military Historians who write books of this type are strictly engaged in labors of love and dedication. Most projects like this are published at a loss or break even. Having provided written sections, captions and provided literally thousands of photos, I can guarantee you that even when compensation is involvement, it would break down somewhere around $ .05 per hour! My hat's off to those who take the time and make the effort.

On a separate note, it is my understanding that Nick has AN EXTRA COPY of this beautiful work that remains unsold. Since he acquired additional copies on behalf of our members, hopefully we can help him recover the cash he is out for having helped GB members.

Thanks again Nick! I've used this book to great effect while revamping and adding items to my WWI Bulgarian display.

Warmest regards,

John
