News from John Foreman

This from John Foreman, author of the Fighter Command War Diary series:

"Pleased to say that Volume 4 goes off to the publisher tomorrow for final proof-reading. Format exactly as before; July 1st 1943 - June 30th 1944. 396 pages plus index, which will make it around 425 pages at a guess. Somewhere around 175 photos. I reckon it will be available around September, if not before. Cracking on now with Volume 5."
