News from John Foreman
18 September 2003

Author John Foreman sends this message: "Fighter Command War Diaries, volume 5 is finished (writing and typesetting). I'm just printing it off and my good friend and colleague Chris Goss (author of Bloody Biscay and others) will proof-read it. Then indexing and off to the printers! This will run to nearly 450 pages, plus index, which will bring it to nearly 500. The format is, of course, the same. However, I have reduced the number of combat reports and increased the number of 'day accounts', which provide rather more information and interest."
