In addition some prospects, a very interesting photo booklet showing photos of the contemporary L`Égyptienne model
and the calendar for this year, which I was still missing
Somehow it is like Christmas and Birthday at the same day.....
Here is a link to ancre, where you can read more about the publications - nevertheless I will present them all in future book and planset reviews
I'm showing this post to my wife to show her that there are respectable people that are even more insane about all this ship stuff than I am ! I just ordered Le Coureur, and L'Egyptienne monographs also, and received the books on the uniforms of the French Marines, and the history of the French Frigates a few weeks ago.....So many books, so little time.....
