"My new book Second U-Boat Flotilla is out now from Pen & Sword. Soon to be released also by Naval Institute Press. This unit was equipped primarily with the larger Type IX U-boats and ranged as far afield as the American Coast, South Africa, the Caribbean, and Penang. Boats of this unit also were involved in the sinking of the Athenia and Laconia. Currently working on U-Boat in Action (working title) for Greenhill Books, telling the story of U-564 on patrol in 1942 in words and pictures."

We've added another self-publisher, Charles Turnbo, and his book to our Directory of Self-Publishers. If you have self-published a military-related title about World War II, especially if you're a veteran writing about your wartime experiences, please send us information so we can add you to the Directory.
Over the last few months we've been working on a new, multi-dimensional system of categorizing WWII-related books into thousands of specific subject categories and inter-linking all those categories to make it easy to find books about any topic. The job is far from complete, but we've reached the point where we're ready to offer a preview of the new subjects system. Constructive suggestions are welcome while we continue to create new categories, load books, and link related categories for rapid browsing.

Sometimes when we run across an interesting/unusual/informative book, especially an old and out-of-print one, we like to bring it to your attention.
Perry, F. W. Commonwealth Armies: Manpower and Organization in Two World Wars. Manchester: Manchester University Press, 1988
The late Dr. Perry's book surveys the armies of the UK, India, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and assorted colonial forces in both world wars and presents information and conclusions about their overall war-making capabilities. Very good work, and includes material about such obscure formations as the British Caribbean Regiment in WWII. Dr. Perry also authored an unpublished manuscript, The Armies of the Commonwealth, the only copy of which languishes in the Imperial War Museum in London. It dives much deeper into the same waters, butalasseems to be accessible only by visiting the IWM. Having examined the ms there, we can only hope that someone eventually publishes it.
