News from OUP
Oxford University Press has announced it will be publishing softcover reprints of the entire Germany and the Second World War series in May of this year. OUP's hardcoversEnglish translations of the original Das Deutsche Reich und der Zweite Weltkrieg seriesproved hideously expensive, and the softcover editions will be far more affordable, but still not exactly cheap. Whatever the price, these books come as close to an official German history of the war as we are ever likely to see.
