News from Christopher Shores
This just in from author Chris Shores:
"I am pleased to be able to tell you that Mediterranean Air War, volume 1 was published at the Duxford Airshow on 30 June, and seemed to be well-received. We have just had our first review in Britain at War Magazine.
"In light of this, Giovanni Massimello, Russell Guest and I are already well on with volumes 2 and 3, with a view to trying to get Vol 2 out in time for next year's Duxford. As more nations come into the coverage, we are being joined more by other members of 'the team' such as Winfried Bock and Frank Olynyk. At present our enthusiasms are running high! Hope we can keep it up."
