Dear Friends:

If you heard the sound of trees falling, it is because we have been working like beavers. Very shortly we will announce our next titles, one big and one small format. There are also several excellent books from other publishers coming soon and we will be announcing them as soon as we have the details and prices.

Today, we are announcing a title that should be a winner. From Hussar Productions we offer CAMOUFLAGE AND MARKINGS OF THE PANZERWAFFE. Written by Artur Majewski, this massive volume has hundreds of new b/w photographs and 200 colour profiles. In the next few weeks we will add some sample pages and more information.

We expect to have our copies in September, but since it will be a limited printing we are taking orders now to make sure that we have enough to supply our customers. And, while the price of the book is set at $130.00, if you order by the end of March, your price will be $125.00. We will not charge your credit card until we actually ship the book to you. Standard shipping charges will apply. So, order today to make sure that you do not miss out on a terrific book.

Until next time,

John and Sharron

Dear Friends:

It has been a bit quiet on the new book front, but here are a few new interesting titles for your reading pleasure.

From Peko we offer Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B, from Kagero SS-Kampfgruppe Peiper 1943-1945, Romanian Armored Forces in World War II, and Guerrilla Nightmare: Luftwaffe Stukas at War Against Tito’s Partisans in Yugoslavia 1941 – 1945, from Luftfahrtverlag Embleme der Luftwaffe Volume 1: Nah-und Fernaufklarer, and last from Fonthill Heydrich: Dark Shadow of the SS.

         

We do our best to anticipate sales of the various books that we offer. However, not being perfect, sometimes demand exceeds what we have ordered from other publishers and/or distributors. When that happens, we put you on our backorder list and try to get those books to you as soon as we can. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.

We are also working hard on three new books, more info soon.

Till next time, John and Sharron

August 28 2018

Dear Friends:

It has been a quite summer re new books and that is why we have not sent out any updates. But, not to worry, we have been busy preparing new books, and we will release news of them over the next few months. This week we have two pieces of information.

Unfortunately, due to the security situation regarding shipments (our container was subjected to a scan and close inspection, and as a result missed the scheduled ship), Posen ’45 has been delayed in reaching us. At this time we expect that it will be here in mid-September, and we will ship it out immediately. We are sorry for this delay but unfortunately this one is out of our control.

We are also announcing a new (revised) book from Waldemar Trojca’s publishing house. Originally published in 2009,  Japanese Hybrid Warships: Technical and Operational History has been updated and expanded by naval expert Hans Lengerer, the drawings and colour plates have been produced by Waldemar Trojca. The first edition of 250 pages has had added to it more photographs, colour drawings and line drawings.

This expanded edition is a large format, hard cover book with the following details:

352 pages, 76 pages of German/English text, 257 photographs (including 32 colour). 150 lined drawings, 209 colour profiles (2D and 3D), 8 maps.

We will receive only one shipment of the book and therefore need to gauge the number that we need to order. When you place your order we will note it, but you will not be charged for the book until it is sent out.. We expect to have the book at the end of November. As the exact price depends on the number of copies we order, at this time we can say that the final price will be approximately $95.00 – $105.00. However, for those of you that order by Sept 9 2018, we will guarantee the price at $90.00.

Well that will do for this week, more news soon. John and Sharron
