We've added another self-publisher, Joseph S. Covais, and his book, Battery: C. Lenton Sartain and the Airborne GIs of the 319th Glider Field Artillery, to our Directory of Self-Publishers.
If you've 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.
