Marc Geerdink-Schaftenaar was born in 1972 and began studying military history and uniforms after casting his first tin soldiers when he was 12. Since then, he has been fascinated with history, especially when he discovered re-enactment and living history. Studying for his degree in teaching, he began writing articles, giving lectures and publishing documents for re-enactors, to make historical information easily accessible for anyone interested. The Dutch Army's Regiment Limburgse Jagers presented him with an award for his research on their military history. He lives in Julianadorp, the Netherlands, with his wife Jolijn (also an active re-enactor) and four kids.
All in all, it's an excellent little reference book for a period of European history, there is the detail to please the modellers out there as not only are there numerous illustrations but also descriptions of the equipment and dress. * Army Rumour Service *
