Author J.J. Hays writes us:

"I have formed a new publishing company called 'Dogface Publishing' that will finish the United States Army Ground Forces Tables of Organization and Equipment, World War II series of books [originally published by Military Press]. I am fully retired after 30 years as a banking executive, and most all my time will be devoted to this project. The books will shortly appear, probably with Amazon.

"The sale of Military Press to a new owner, who has continued sale of my books but without payment of royalties, will be addressed through the UK legal system."

News from Bedfordshire
16 February 2015

Having recently received some less than positive reports about the state of affairs in Dunstable, we're now the recipients of more favorable news about The Military Press. It appears they continue to sell the line of WWII-related titles acquired from Jonathan Prickett, but it's less clear if they are producing new releases.

News from OUP
9 February 2015

Oxford University Press has announced it will be publishing softcover reprints of the entire Germany and the Second World War series in May of this year. OUP's hardcovers—English translations of the original Das Deutsche Reich und der Zweite Weltkrieg series—proved hideously expensive, and the softcover editions will be far more affordable, but still not exactly cheap. Whatever the price, these books come as close to an official German history of the war as we are ever likely to see.
