Dear Friends,

First of all, we are happy to report that we have switched to a new, and better, web hosting company, which means that we can process your orders again! Our server will also be replaced this weekend, which means that we shouldn’t experience lost or bounced back emails either. Thank you for your patience!

Today, we are offering three new titles. these have been ordered and should be arriving in the next 2-3 weeks. Reserve your copies now!

From Schiffer Publishing, we have Vampir: From Teenage Flak Auxiliary to Night-Fighting Machine Gunner in WWII, which offers a rare account of training and combat with “Vampir” infrared-equipped small-arms in WWII.

Next, on the way from Wingleader, we have Nachtjagd Combat Archive: Eastern Front and Mediterranean, which covers the German night fighter operations on both the Eastern and Mediterranean fronts. We also have Air-War 1942: Holding the Line, Part 1 January to April 1942, a blow-by-blow history of the air war over Europe.

Finally, for those of you who ordered U-Bootmänner als Panzerjäger and Elephant Paths: Combat History of Sturmgeschütz-Abteilung 203, both titles were received and the orders have been sent out. We only have 2 copies of each title left for sale, so grab yours today!

Thank you for your support during 2022! We look forward to hearing from you!

December 8th, 2022 – Update

Dear Friends,

Today, we are offering, from HIKOKI, a 2-volume set on the RAF in the Mediterranean. The titles are: Close Call: RAF Close Support in the Mediterranean, Volume 1 – Defeat in France to el Hamma 1939-1943, and Close Call II: RAF Close Air Support in the Mediterranean, Volume 2 – Sicily to Victory in Italy 1943-1945. This set is another excellent and informative production from a publisher known for the quality of their books. We have several sets in stock, but do not wait to order if this is your “jam”. You can also order them separately.

DELIVERY UPDATES

As you can probably imagine, holiday season traffic has contributed to transport and delivery delays. As a result, some things are going to be out of our control. However, we assure you that we are trying to navigate these issues to get you your titles as quickly as possible. For those of you waiting for several new titles, here are the latest anticipated delivery dates:

Panther D from Trojca – At this time, the title is almost ready to go to the printer. We anticipate that we will receive it at the beginning of March 2023.

The Army That Got Away – We hope to receive them around December 20th so that we can send them all out before December 24th.

Nuts & Bolts #47 – Same as above. We hope to receive them around December 20th so that we can send them all out before December 24th.

Arado Ar 234 and Dornier Do 217 – The distributor says that they will be receiving them this month. However, with shipping delays and the holidays coming up, we think that (realistically) we should have them before January 15th, 2023.

That’s all that we have for you today. Please note that we will send out more delivery updates as soon as we have more information.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Have a great weekend,

John & Natalie

October 27th, 2022 – Update

Dear Friends,

Today, we have three new interesting titles to offer. From Schiffer, we have The Porsche Tiger and Ferdinand Tank Destroyer: VK 4501 (P)/Porsche Type 101 and the Panzerjäger Ferdinand/Elefant. We will be putting in an order for this title next week.

From Peko, we have Elephant Paths: Combat History of Sturmgeschütz-Abteilung 203. This title will also be ordered next week. However, since it’s going to be coming from Europe, we estimate that we will receive it around the end of November.

Lastly, we will be taking pre-orders for the new title from Luftfahrtverlag-Start, U-Bootmänner als Panzerjäger. This title is scheduled to be available in Europe in December. We expect to have it at the end of December/beginning of January.

Please be advised that we will be ordering these titles to meet demand. If you order by the end of Sunday, October 30th, you will be assured to get a copy. As per usual, we will not be charging your credit card for any of these three titles until they are shipped.

We do have a bit of disappointing news to share. For those of you who ordered The Army That Got Away: The German 15.Armee in the Summer of 1944, we regret to inform you that thanks to our new enemy, the global transportation system, we now expect to have this title around the middle of December. But do not fret! Those who have ordered a copy will be sure to get one. We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience. We will inform you of any new developments as we find out ourselves.

Finally, we just want to include a quick update on Waldemar Trojca’s Panther: Bergepanther Ausf. D. The title should be heading off to the printer before December and we are expecting/hoping to receive it by the end of January. Interesting tidbit, Mr. Trojca just informed us that the book has magically grown by another 48 pages, bringing it’s total number of pages to just under 900 (including over 1,000 photos and 16 additional pages of colour).

Have a great weekend and we hope to hear from you soon!

October 2nd, 2022 – Update

Dear Friends,

We hope that you are having a nice weekend. We just wanted to send out a quick update regarding some good and slightly unfortunate news that we have to pass on.

Starting with the slightly unfortunate news, we regret to inform you that our title Das Reich I, 1934-1939, is now out of print. As of today’s date, we have 3 damaged copies left (dinged corners and some minor scratches). At $35 each, we are making these available on a first-come, first-serve basis. To order, please click on the link below.

Now, on to the good news! After the Battle has reprinted two more titles. If you missed out in the past, do not let them slip through your fingers!

Lastly, After the Battle has also published a new title, which is a compendium of their best articles from the After the Battle magazine.

We will be placing our order for the After the Battle titles on Wednesday, October 5th. That said, please place your orders before end of day, Tuesday, October 4th.

*** ATTENTION ***

For those of you who ordered To the Gates of Moscow (2-volume set): Without going into too much detail, it has been a real challenge to get these books in. Not only do we have a limited number coming, but we just learned that 5 of the sets we ordered are slightly damaged (dinged corners). Sadly, it appears that there will not be enough undamaged sets to fill all of the orders. As a result, we are offering the damaged sets at the discounted price of $185. We should be receiving the books, by Friday, October 7th. If you would like to grab a discounted set, please let us know via email at: jjfpub@jjfpub.mb.ca or call at: (204) 837-6080. Undamaged sets will be assigned based on who ordered first. Unfortunately, this means that some clients may have to wait until the next shipment arrives in 2-3 months.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Take care and stay safe,

John & Natalie


September 15th, 2022 – Update

Dear Friends,

Another quick update for you because the books that we are featuring today will be arriving together with the other titles that were mentioned in the last update.

We do not mean to rush you, but if either or both of these titles interest you, you need to let us know by next week, by the end of Monday, September 19th.

As these titles will all be arriving to us by air freight, and the cost per lb. is rather high, we cannot offer any discount on the books from this update. Additionally, since the Panzerregiment 1 title is going to be a hefty one (it weighs in at 7 lbs), the shipping charge to our North American clients will have to be $25.

Finally, we have uploaded cover and sample pages for Trojca’s Panther: Bergepanther Ausf. D. Click on the link to view!

Hoping to hear from you in the next few days!

Have a great rest of your week,

John & Natalie


September 11th, 2022 – Update

Dear Friends,

We have a bit of a special update for you today. We have four titles to offer for your possible reading pleasure. However, there is a bit of a catch in that there’s a bit of a time limit involved. If you are interested in these titles, we would ask that you please place order by the end of Tuesday, September 13th. This is because the titles come from Europe and we do not place orders with our contact there very often due to rising costs. To ensure that your copies are included in this shipment, please order soon. We should receive them in a few weeks.

Here are the titles:

The last link is a special case. Originally, To the Gates of Moscow with the 3rd Panzer Division, was published as one volume, which quickly sold out. Since then, the publisher found more material. However, this made the book too large to print in just one volume. And so, the publisher split the title into two parts.

We are ordering and selling the two volumes only as a set. Despite the rather high price, this is an excellent 2-volume set. But, we also want to add that the set would really only be for those of you who did not purchase the original one volume, or those of you who have enough interest in the extra material (see the link for more detail) and the willingness to shell out the $210. Again, we ask that you place your order for this set by the end of Tuesday, September 13th.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Take care and stay safe,

John & Natalie
