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.
