News from Croatia
8 March 2018

Very pleased are we to have received a package from Croatia. A publisher previously unknown to us, Despot Infinitus, kindly dispatched a selection of interesting WWII titles. Two of these are in dual Croatian and English, with the others in English. All are worth an extra measure of attention for their perspectives on topics mostly obscure in other books in English. That's certainly true of Adriatic Naval War, 1940-1945, with which we were especially impressed.

News from the Corts Foundation
26 February 2018

After our review of The Invasion of the Dutch East Indies, the folks at the Corts Foundation—they are the ones who translated the volume and prepared it for publication—sent this info:

"We do notice the great interest for our first publication as the orders still are arriving at L.U.P., including a large number of downloads. Last week we discussed with Leiden University our next publication: Senshi Sosho volume 26, The Operations of the Navy in the Dutch East Indies and the Bay of Bengal. You will find some new particulars about the operations at Tarakan in this volume. It is our intention to publish this volume (about the same size as S.S. volume 3) in September 2018. We will conclude our series with an air force volume which will be published in 2020."

Second World War Books Review

Historica Aviation Publications of Reno, Nevada continues to expand its line of reprinted volumes from US Army and Air Force sources. Here are notes about some of their latest releases. In all cases, these are desktop published, photocopied onto 8.5"x11" paper, and copy shop bound with a cardstock title page and clear plastic cover. The pages are all extremely bright, clean, and crisp and the binding seems perfectly sturdy, but physically these shouldn't be confused with professionally published hardcover books.

US Army.....
