Does anyone have any suggestions on what books or sites may be helpful in researching the Bulgarian army in WW2? Both Axis and Allied involvement. Thanks for any help.

How hard would it be able to put a basic uniform together? :)

From what I've seen, not hard at all, there seems to be a large amount of postwar stuff identical... the "fash shaped" helmets seem to have been around until only really recently (??!!)...

There's a guy on Ebay who has been selling Buligarian Type A through C helmets in large quantities. My understanding is that they used these helmets from the war until just recently. However, I know nothing about the uniforms themselves. Photos seem to be pretty hard to come by.

On a similar note, does anybody have any info on the Romanian army in the war? I have a Dutch helmet painted to Romanian specs, and I'd be interested in seeing a full Romanian kit from the Eastern Front. It would be fascinating to see representatives of all Germany's allies from the east at some point at some event (Italian, Romanian, Hungarian, Bulgarian, Slovak, Finnish, etc.).

Actually, (borrowing heavily from Frontovik's teachings) the Finn's were a co-beligerant not a German ally...

There are some guys in the Czech Republic who reenact Romanian.

http://www.europeanbattlefield.net/even ... rget0.html

At least I've only ever seen them there...you might be able to contact them via the webmaster of that site - Filip, he's a really nice guy.

Very interesting photos! Thanks for the link.

Not to be off topic, but I want to send my sincerest condolences to everybody in England for this morning's tragedy. I lived in London for quite some time myself, and I am personally devastated by today's events. Please know that your friends on this side of the pond are praying for you all.

Books-wise George F.Nafziger did a Bulgarian order of battle for WW2 that went down to platoon level and listed the weaponry used by the Royal Army. Try Caliver Books in Leigh-on-Sea, that was the last place I saw a copy.

Comrades! By Georgii Dimitrovs magic pen, here is my latest Gymnasty-urka. It is a 1944-1950 period Bulgarian communist army gym. Very nice indeed. But of course, it would only be good for the beet tent as the BPA is kind of like the LWP in as much as re-enacting goes.

Hi!
I am new here but I can supply you with the main things from the Bulgarian uniform I am from Bulgaria and all the items will be original if you wont contact me. The price is not with commercial use just helping a fellow history lower.

Best regards!
