2 February 2000

"The fourth volume of Forgotten Battles is now available. It covers the winter campaign of 1942-1943 and is 437 pages long with 138 maps and 10 figures. I am presently working on the fifth (and undoubtedly longest) volume, which covers the summer-fall campaign of 1943, including the Izium and Mius battles of July and the massive failed Belorussian offensive in the fall. This volume should come in at around 550 pages with over 200 maps. I should finish it by late March, if it does not finish me first."
