"Huns on Wheels"

Post by Jeff Leach » 20 Sep 2019 08:13

As information there is privately published book by Péter Mujzer called Huns on Wheels
Dear Customer,
Huns on Wheels, Hungarian Mobil Forces in WWII, (Armoured, Cavalry, Bicycle Troops, Motorised rifle) is available. The book printed in A/4, hardbound format, 264 pages, 385 black and white original photos, AFVs scale drawings, 14 maps, 34 Order of Battles, and 16 pages long colour materials, armoured vehicles’ profiles and uniforms drawings.
You can order it on hunsonwheels@yahoo.com
It looks really good. He also has a couple of other book on Amazon but I don't know how they compare to the above book. The price isn't listed but is 40 Euro.
