News from India
15 April 2013

Many thanks to Skip Jones for informing us that a publisher in New Delhi has reprinted eight of the major volumes of the "Official History of Indian Armed Forces in the Second World War" series. He notes "I have purchased one volume, The Arakan Operations, and it appears to be an exact reprint including the original folding maps."

The eight originals have been out of print for many years, becoming almost impossible to locate and dreadfully expensive on those rare occasions when they turn up. Check with Pentagon Press in India for details about purchasing individual books or the set of eight reprints.
