Gestational uncertainty
7 April 2016

Occasionally we learn about an interesting upcoming book, only to see it delayed for a long period of time. That's the case with German Ground Forces of World War II: Complete Orders of Battle for Army Groups, Armies, Army Corps, and Other Commands of the Wehrmacht and Waffen SS from Savas Beatie. We first heard of this title in February 2008. After multiple postponements, SB notified us in January they hoped for a summer release. Now we're informed they expect publication this autumn. We eagerly anticipate it, no matter how long this one spends in the oven.
