Dear Friends:

Well, we are pleased to announce another new book from Waldemar Trojca: Soviet Union Air Aces 1941 – 1945. This monster is the first in his new series, History of the Great Patriotic War. It covers 381 pilots, their wartime careers (including the Russo-Finnish War and the War against Japan in the East), their aircraft and the decorations they were awarded, especially the Hero of the Soviet Union. The book is the usual hard cover, large format and includes 768 pages, 1,043 photographs, 406 tables, 784 color profiles, 26 color drawings of decorations, and 110 color drawings of military ranks. Also included is an A0 size color map that shows all Russian and German air units on 22 June 1941. English/German text. Cost is $170.00, a bargain when you consider the contents, the fact that it is the first such exhaustive study of this subject, and that the Soviet pilots (including women) carried a major load of the fighting in the early part of the air war. Their contribution must be recognized.

This book is expected to arrive in November, together with Trojca’s Aircraft Carriers of the Imperial Navy and Army Vol 1, and his edited reprint of Japanese Hybrid Warships, which you can still order. You can reserve your copy of this limited edition now (we expect to put in only 1 order) and you will not be charged until it is in stock and ready to ship.

Dear Friends;

Well, it is time to announce another gigantic title from the Waldemar Trojca publishing workshop. Welcome THE AIRCRAFT CARRIERS OF THE IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY AND ARMY – VOLUME 1. This massive book is written by Hans Lengerer, and Waldemar Trojca has provided the colour profiles. Volume 2 will be printed probably at the end of this year.

As this is a small print run we need to put in our order by Friday, August 9 and it will probably be our only order. So, if you want this fantastic reference book, order it right away. We will not charge you until the book is in stock and ready to ship. At this time, we predict that the cost will be approximately $160.00.

Hard cover, 12″ x 8.5″ (30.75 cm x 21.5 cm); Glossy paper; English and German text; 306 photographs, 673 technical drawings, 45 colour profiles, 68 tables.

FYI, the reprint of the Japanese Hybrids book will arrive in the same shipment as this book.

The Panzers in Berlin book is now printed and our copies will arrive around August 26th. If you have not yet ordered this excellent book, do so now to make sure you do not miss out on it. We do not know how many extra copies we will have.

A quick update regarding a reprint of the excellent book by Martin Pegg on the Henschel  Hs 129 aircraft. This limited reprint should reach us at the end of August.

We need to know by end of this Sunday if you are interested in a copy so that we can put our order in on Monday.

Dear Friends:

As an addition/correction to our update earlier today, it has come to our attention that as to the Das Reich volumes, it is volume V (not IV) that deals with the fighting in Normandy. As a result, we are adding Das Reich V to the list eligible for the 25% discount. You can still order Das Reich IV at 25% off.

Das Reich V

Sorry for the minor screw-up.

April 9 2019

Dear friends:

Today we offer five new books for your pleasure. From Pen & Sword – A Tale of Ten Spitfires; from Frontline Books – Knights of the Battle of Britain; from Casemate – The First Bridge Too Far; from Helion – Air Battles Over the Baltic 1941; and from Kagero – Operational History of the Hungarian Armoured Troops in World War II.

We also wish to inform you that we now have received two titles we featured previously. Armoured Warfare in the Battle for Budapest hit our desk with a loud thud. This monster is over 800 pages and, although it does not contain a single photo, is full of excellent battle accounts, numerous tables, and colour maps. Grab it while it is still in print. Additionally, we have received Der Tiger Volume 3. It is really a great photo album with many unpublished and rare photos of Tigers. Many are full page and every Tiger aficionado will find it worth every penny. Looks like this series will be a winner so do not wait to start collecting the set with the 5th or 6th volume, when the earlier ones will be out of print.

Until next time, read on. John and Sharron
