28 July 2001

Pardon, as they say, our dust. We're in the midst of reorganizing and renovating—again!?!—our webpages which have grown numerous and unwieldy over the years. When we're finished, everything should have a more consistent look and a more consistent navigational interface. In the meantime, you might occasionally find yourself transported to a page that no longer exists in its original location, so please bear with us. Thanks for your continued support of Stone & Stone Second World War Books!
