After a long wait – much longer than expected due to the vast amount of work required – we are proud to announce the pre-publication offer for our forthcoming title “Panzerkrieg: Volume 1″, the first in a series exploring German armoured operations at Stalingrad.
This inaugural volume contains comprehensive histories of the three panzer battalions (103, 129 and 160) that were part of the motorised 3rd, 29th and 60th Infanterie-Divisions. A large number of incredible photos have been assembled, around 100 from the Bundesarchiv-Bildarchiv, the remaining 460 from veterans, private collectors and the author’s own archive, the overwhelming majority having never been published before. But don’t think this is “just” a photo volume; the operations of each battalion are covered in a detailed narrative accompanied by maps, aerial photos, tables and of course hundreds of stunning images. Be sure to check out the samples (click on the book pic above and then look for the 6 links to sample pages). This is a large book: same dimensions as “Angriff” to really show off the photos, but 568 pages in all, so it weighs in at 2.5kg / 5lb unpacked. It’s safe to say this is our biggest publication to date. Regular price of this title will be AUD $125, but if you take advantage of the 10% pre-publication offer, it can be yours for AUD $112.50.
We’ve also taken the opportunity to lower the prices on some of our other titles. “Into Oblivion” has been reduced from $80 down to $70, while “Iron Cross Brigade” has been dropped to $75. “Besieged: The Epic Battle for Cholm” and “An Artilleryman in Stalingrad” are approaching sold-out status, so if you don’t yet have a copy, now might be a good time to get one.
In other news, we have authorised Stackpole Books to re-issue “Island of Fire”. We must receive at least 2 or 3 emails a week enquiring about this long out-of-print book. For all those that have been asking, you won’t have much longer to wait. When it becomes available, we will be offering this book to our customers, so if you want to get a copy from us (signed bookplates will also be available), get your name on our list by sending an email.
