Here's some books I used for reference. "From Pike to Shot" is a book Mike Blank recommended to me. It covers briefly everything about the armies and battles in western Europe from 1685 to 1720. It's not really an illustrative guide but it does give uniform colors, weapons and tactics from all the major powers. If anyone models this period, this book should be at hand. It's a classic and can be found on ebay now and then. I bought this copy through amazon for under $20 a few years ago. The Osprey titles are o.k. but are still wanting in more uniform and equipment descriptions. More on references later.
