War begins, book delayed
26 June 2017

Books don't have a standard term of gestation. The War Begins: The Navy's Early Carrier Raids, February-May 1942 by David Lee Russell was originally scheduled for publication in May 2014. The latest word from Naval Institute Press? Look for it in June 2018. Getting it right is more important than getting it out on a deadline.


News from Fonthill
26 June 2017

As with many publishers, Fonthill's schedule for rolling out new books sometimes needs to be revised. Thus, no guarantees on publication dates, but here's some of what's on the horizon:
