News from Nick Beale
"Since Air War Italy 1944-45 came out, I've been working (solo this time) on Ghost Bombers: The Moonlight War of NSG 9: Luftwaffe Night Attack Operations from Anzio to the Alps. The book is a history of the Luftwaffe's Nachtschlachtgruppe 9. I finished it this summer, after four years' research with veterans of the unit and their families, and have just signed with Classic Publications, with publication foreseen in Autumn 2001."
