July 12th, 2023 – IT’S OUR 40TH ANNIVERSARY!

Dear Friends,

To celebrate 40 years of providing you with the best military history books, and to brighten up your summer, we have a very, VERY special announcement! We have acquired a very extensive and diverse book collection, and, over the next few weeks, you will have an opportunity to add to your library slightly used titles at very good prices, and fill in some gaps with out of print ones at prices below those on sites that really empty out your wallet. We want to be fair, but also have to weigh in our work and the fact that we have to pay our bills.


Here’s how the auction will work: For the rest of the summer, every Thursday or Friday, we will feature one or more publishers’ books (plus a miscellaneous category, and…. *A RARE CATEGORY*) . We will provide the title, author, and publisher as well as the reserve price. For more information on the titles, you can search our website ( or “Google-it”. If in stock, a book’s price will be around 50% of the regular price. If out of print, for most titles the price will be close to the original regular price, a bit more if in as new condition, a bit less if there is some wear.

In several cases, the extremely rare and desired price may be quite high, but lower than some sites ask. As we only have one of each title, you may bid at the asking price, or higher if you really want to be competitive. We will accept the highest bid. In case of a tie, the earliest bid wins.

There will be a link to each book and you can order as normal. However, when ordering, do not forget to include your bid in the customer/order notes section. Bidding will stop at midnight of the Monday after we send out the email.


Due to the high charges from credit card companies and security concerns, we encourage you to use an alternate method of payment. We encourage all of our customers to use Pay Pal, but our Canadian customers can also choose to pay by e-transfer.

Regular shipping will apply, but no further discounts will be applied. You can add any of the regular titles from our web site to your order.


Here is a list (in no particular order) of publishers and special categories that will be featured in the coming weeks:

JJ Fedorowicz Publishing, Trojca, Helion, Classic/Crecy, Hikoki, Pen & Sword, Casemate, Midland, Fonthill, Frontline, Peko, University of Kansas, Stackpole, Greenhill, Eagle Editions, Kagero, MMP, Leaping Horseman, Ryton, Start Luftfahrt Verlag, After the Battle, Concord, and Schiffer. Also, Miscellaneous and *Rare*.

We will send out the first batch this Friday, which will be Helion titles, followed next week by Classic/Crecy books.

We look forward to supplying you with some of the titles. Enjoy the auction!!

June 13th, 2023 – Update

Dear Friends,

Today we are featuring a 2-volume set on Stalingrad by well-known Swedish historian, Christer Bergström. This work on the ground war during the Battle of Stalingrad is the continuation of Christer Bergström’s previous book Operation Barbarossa 1941: Hitler Against Stalin and supplements his Black Cross / Red Star series about the air war on the Eastern Front.

Stalingrad – New Perspectives on an Epic Battle. Vol. 1: The Doomed City covers the importance of Stalingrad and the Luftwaffe’s largest and never before discussed mistake in 1942. The newly-released Volume 2, Stalingrad – New Perspectives on an Epic Battle, Vol. 2: The City of Death, covers operations in the city itself and the Soviet counteroffensive to the surrender of the Germans and Romanians in the pocket.

We will be ordering this set at the end of the week and should have them in by the beginning of July. Place your order by end of day, Thursday, June 15th, so we know how many to order!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Take care and stay safe,

John & Natalie

June 12th, 2023 – Update

Dear Friends:

Today we are highlighting 3 really interesting titles for you to check out. Two of them will be in stock in two weeks; the third we should have by mid-July.

From Frontline Books, we await two books detailing the history of the Abwehr (German Military Intelligence) – Hitler’s Nest Of Vipers deals with the organization’s early years of WW II. The second title, Hitler’s Trojan Horse, takes the narrative to the end of the war. Although we will be receiving these books in about two weeks, you can order them now.

From AK Interactive, we offer a chance for you to get in on the pre-pub of Waffen-SS Camouflage Uniforms. Looks like a terrific book for you collectors and uniform enthusiasts.

If these books have caught your eye, please place your order today to ensure you get a copy. We are hoping to place our order by Thursday, June 15th, 2023. As always, you will not be charged until we send out your order.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Take care and stay safe,

John & Natalie

May 7th, 2023 – Update

Dear Friends,

We hope that you all had a great weekend. Hopefully you had a chance to spend some quality time with the newest title by Waldemar Trojca, Panther: Bergepanther Ausf. D. All ordered copies have been sent out. Now, we do have a few copies left, and the few that we have left will not stay in stock for long. We do not know when, or if, we can get more, so order today! Okay, on to new business!

Today, we have one book for your consideration, the T-34 Shock: The Soviet Legend in Pictures by Fonthill Media. After taking a quick scan of a copy, we heartily recommend it. A definitely useful facet is that the photos are presented in chronological order.

That’s all for now. We hope that you have a great week. Also, a big thanks to everyone who contacted us and provided us with feedback on the Panther: Bergepanther Ausf. D. We really appreciate and value your comments.

Take care and stay safe,

John & Natalie
