News from Savas Beatie
8 July 2008

One of the more eagerly awaited titles of 2008—German Army Order of Battle for World War II, 1939-1945 by William T. McCroden and Thomas Nutter—is apparently in limbo. Although specific details remain available throughout the Web, and the book continues to be listed at Barnes & Noble, Ted Savas has asked us to delete it from our database.

"There has never been a timetable or formal announcement of this title," he writes. "We changed editors 16 months ago, but had never released the new names (the ones you have are the new names), so we are unsure how you got them or how Amazon got them! I will keep you apprised as we move forward."

Bill McCroden and Tom Nutter, please phone home!
