The latest from Scholar's Bookshelf is not a general catalog nor even a military catalog, but -- for the first time in living memory -- a catalog devoted strictly to "A Comprehensive Selection of the Great Books & Films on World War II" with over 1500 titles. Quite nice.

It includes the Izium and Mius offensives of July 1943, the Krymskaia (Taman') offensives in the summer of 1943, the Belorussian and Kiev offensives of fall 1943, the Krivoi Rog and Nikopol' operations on November and December 1943, and several lesser operations."

News from Mark Bando
Mark Bando, author of The 101st Airborne at Normandy, The 101st Airborne: From Holland to Hitler's Eagle's Nest, and Breakout at Normandy, sends along word of his latest project:
"Although the title is still subject to change, Trigger Time: Screaming Eagles in Normandy is scheduled for release in October 2000. The publisher is again MBI, in Osceola, WI and the format will be hardcover, 10x10", 40,000 words of text, and 250 photos, of which 40 or more will be in color. Despite the fact that this is the same subject as in my first book, no stories nor photos will be repeated. Stories and facts result from 30 years research on the 101st Airborne, with over 900 interviews with WW2 survivors of that unit, plus eight personal visits to Normandy since 1989."
