Saw on another forum the rather good idea of listing all the reference books you have. It helps others know what guides you might have to help them reference something in. So, removing historical battles, fortifications, ships, vehicles, planes and general military history books my reference collection consists of:

 

  • American Socket Bayonets 1717-1873: Donald B Webster Jr
  • Bannerman Catalogue of Military Goods 1927: Bannerman
  • Bayonets from Janzen's Notebook: Jerry Janzen
