Dear Friends,

Good news – we have now sent out all of the back orders and, hopefully, you either have received the books, or will soon.

Today we are announcing a new excellent book from Panzerwrecks, Combat History of Sturmpanzer-Abteilung 217 ! It has been printed and we will be taking orders for it until the end of Sunday, April 19th. We will then order only the number of copies we receive orders for, plus 2 or 3 extras. So, if you want to be sure to receive your copy, put your order in! As usual, first come, first served (you will not be charged for the book until it is sent).

Lastly, although the pandemic is affecting many businesses, we are trying to work as usual. While delivery of the books might take a bit longer than usual (not really a problem up to now), we will get them to you!

Thank you all for your continuing support and patronage, which we will reciprocate by producing more high-quality books.

Stay healthy and safe,

John and Natalie


March 29, 2020 – Update

Dear Friends,

Just a quick update to announce that we have received the 3 new JJF titles and Camouflage and Markings of the Panzerwaffe! And, by this Tuesday, we should also have the Panther Batallion Brandenburg and the Natter books!!

Orders that only included any of the JJF books and Camouflage and Markings book have been shipped. Orders that include any of these books plus Panther Batallion Brandenburg and/or Natter should be on the way by the end of this Wednesday.

We are still waiting for the Black Cross Red Star book and any orders that include it should be on the way to you by April 9th. Of course, due to the Coronavirus situation, you may experience some delay in delivery; however, UPS has assured us that they are doing everything possible to reduce delays. If you have been waiting for the books to arrive here before ordering, you can go ahead and do so now.

Now, because we keep our rep at the top of our Xmas list, UPS has offered us good rates for overseas orders for a limited time. These rates will only be in effect for another 4 weeks. That said, we encourage overseas customers to take advantage of them while they can.  

Finally, while we are experiencing this health emergency we are still taking and sending out orders, and working on future titles – and hope to announce 2 or 3 new titles in the near future. Stay tuned for updates. We thank you for your continued support.

Wishing you and your loved ones much health and safety,

John and Natalie

Dear Valued Friends,

I regret to inform those of you who have been waiting for the arrival of our 3 JJ Fedorowicz books that there has been another delay with the shipment. It is in Canada; however, due to the current health situation worldwide, there have been, and still may be, more delays. Originally scheduled to arrive here on Monday, March 16th, the shipment is now scheduled for delivery on March 25th. Let us hope that this date will be the one! Regardless, we will keep all of you updated.

Needless to say, this has been extremely frustrating and disappointing to you and us. At this time, all we can hope for is a quick delivery, and I promise that as soon as we receive these books we will pack and attempt to send them out immediately. I must also mention that I have received a warning from various shippers that (although we will work to send out the books immediately) there may be delays in you receiving them. Additionally (not surprising), I have been told that due to the limited space on the aircraft that usually carry our UPS and other shipments, the cost of shipping might also be affected. In such cases, if the cost difference is substantial, affected customers will be informed.

Customers that have ordered the following: Natter, Black Cross Red Star, Panther Battallion Brandenburg, and Camouflage and Colours of the Panzerwaffe, please be advised that we are scheduled to receive these books by the end of March. Again, we will try our best to ship them out ASAP.

I sincerely apologize for these delays but they really beyond our control at this time. We will manage them as expeditiously and efficiently as we can, and appreciate your understanding and loyal patronage.
 
Stay safe,

John Fedorowicz

Dear Friends:

One more book for your consideration this weekend, also a Luftwaffe subject. In mid-March we are also expecting to receive copies of Christer Bergström’s Black Cross / Red Star Air War Over the Eastern Front Volume 4: Stalingrad to Kuban. For those of you who have also ordered the Natter book, the shipping for this book will only cost an additional $5.00.

Reserve your copy now; it won’t last long! At this time, only reprints of the first 4 volumes are planned.

Have a great weekend,

John

Dear Friends;

This week we are taking orders for an excellent title, which has just been re-printed. Natter: Manned Missile of the Third Reich, has been shipped and should reach us (like a number of other books) around mid-March.

As with other small re-prints, the number of copies arriving is limited, so order yours now!

This ex-Classic publication has been expanded significantly, reaching 534 pages and 807 color, and black and white photos and illustrations. Definitely worth every penny!

Have a great weekend!

John and Natalie

Dear Friends:

Just one item for your consideration today. The excellent Luftfahrt book The Panther Battalion “Brandenburg has just been reprinted. We have on order a limited number of copies, and should have them in mid-March. The publishers have added 21 photos and 16 more pages of information. For those who do not yet have this fabulous volume, or those who also want the expanded edition, do not wait to order, it will go out of print quickly again (in fact I got caught short on the previous edition and did not have one either). Click on the title for more details.

As additional information to the update from Feb 7th regarding the Panzerkampfgruppe Strachwitz, I am happy to let you know that there are a limited number of autographed stickers by Michael Pruett available. One will be included with each order for his book.

More news on upcoming books soon!

Have a nice weekend, John


February 7 2020

Dear Friends:

Some important news, and a surprise, for all of you today. I am happy to report that the two new JJ Fedorowicz Publishing books are on the way to Winnipeg! Charging Knights on the Eastern Front: The Combat History of schwere Panzer-Abteilung 505 and Combat History of the 17. SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Division Gotz von Berlichingen, Volume 2 should arrive here at the beginning of March and will be shipped immediately. As is standard for the publishing industry, there were a few glitches and delays, but I hope that you will find the final product worth it.

And now the surprise I have been promising. Due to popular demand, I am reprinting an excellent book long out of print: Panzergruppe Strachwitz: A Photographic Study of the Battles for the “Ostsack” and “Westsack”, Narva 1944. This book contains fantastic photographs of armour from Panzer-Grenadier-Division “Feldherrnhalle” and Tigers from schwere Panzer-Abteilung 502. That is where Tiger ace Otto Carius fought (the action is described in his book Tigers in the Mud). This book will be arriving with the two books mentioned above, so you can save on shipping if you add it to the pile (only another $5.00).

Lastly. The book Camouflage and Markings of the Panzerwaffe should reach us also at the beginning of March. I know that it has been a while since it was announced so here is the best way to take care of your orders: If you ordered the book and still want it, do nothing, we will send it when it comes in. If you have a new credit card, or if your credit card’s expiry date is now passed, please re-order the books, mention that you are just giving us the new information and do not want 2 copies. If you no longer want the book, please send an e-mail stating so, and give me the order number.

I hope to hear from you soon, more great books are on the way.

Have a nice weekend, John

Dear Friends:

Today we offer you two new titles! From Casemate (should have in stock by end of month) we offer From the Realm of a Dying Sun Volume 1, IV. SS Panzerkorps and the Battles for Warsaw, July – November 1944. Also, we just received a limited number of Nuts & Bolts 43 – “FAMO’s Sd.Kfz. 9 18 ton Zugkraftwagen, Armoured and Unarmoured Variants.”

A SAD PASSING: Unfortunately, it is with great sadness that I need to inform my friends and customers that several days ago Roger J Bender passed away. A pioneer in military history book publishing, Roger started his business in the 1960s and quickly became a force in the industry. He published many high-quality books and I became a big fan. In fact, I always wanted my books to approach his standard. As a result, I chose to use his format for our books, discarded dust jackets, and opted for acid free paper.

Thank you Roger for all the help and advice over the years; Above all, thank you for being a true friend. Rest in Peace.

Dear Friends:

A big Happy New Year to all our friends. Much health, happiness and prosperity in 2020 to you and your family.

To start, a big announcement here at JJ Fedorowicz Publishing. I wish to extend a Happy Retirement to Sharron. Her 17 years of dedicated work is appreciated and her presence will be missed.

Today we are offering two new titles from Maranes Editions. We have just received a limited number of each title. Even though their books are in French only, the number of photos and documents make them a must to own for anyone interested in the Waffen-SS divisions. Previous books from this publisher have gone out of print quickly, so first come, first served. They are:

PANZERDIVISION HITLERJUGEND 1.1, Volume I: 24/6/43 – 5/6/44, Belgique – France details the formation of some of the division elements up to the Invasion of Normandy.

PANZERDIVISION HITLERJUGEND 1.2, Volume II: 6/6 – 7/7/44, Invasionsfront details the fighting of the same elements in Normandy from June 6 to July 7 1944 (the 4 Battles for Caen).

I should have more books for you soon, as well as information on the 2 coming books. In that shipment we will also have a surprise reprint of one of our older titles.

Have a nice weekend,

John Fedorowicz
