Unfortunately like other serious works on the subject it is also not available from Amazon. But you can order it directly from the publisher at Schiffer Publishing, and they ship free if you are located in the US!

This is an album of over 250 period photos of Austro-Hungarian and Italian soldiers, a very useful reference of war time uniforms of the two armies:

I Due Nemici
Andrea Brambilla, Mauro Caimi, Franco Mesturini
Parma, 1999

Bringing this thread back from the dead, does anyone know what the 'pike' in 'pike gray' was? A road, a fish or a pole?

"Hechtgrau" is "grey like a pike", "Hecht" = Northern Pike
