News from SB
30 May 2015

German Ground Forces of World War II: Complete Orders of Battle for Army Groups, Armies, Army Corps, and Other Commands by McCroden and Nutter has been on our radar for more than seven years. Most recently, it seemed to be scheduled for publication this month. The folks at Savas Beatie just provided us with this update on the status of the book:

"It is finally completed and reformatted by the authors (one stopped working which was the problem). It is being laid out for publication and we anticipate a Fall 2015 release. It is quite a book."
