The style of the illustrations of soldiers looks like an Osprey book.

To be honest, I have always had a fondness for the members of "Division Azul" (Blue Division). From some of the stories that I have read, the Soviets (after Jan. 1942) had a healthy respect for the Spanish Voulenteers.

Last year I went to France and visited the grave of Egon Albrecht Lemke, a brazilian born Luftwaffe ace.
