News from the Corts Foundation
26 February 2018

After our review of The Invasion of the Dutch East Indies, the folks at the Corts Foundation—they are the ones who translated the volume and prepared it for publication—sent this info:

"We do notice the great interest for our first publication as the orders still are arriving at L.U.P., including a large number of downloads. Last week we discussed with Leiden University our next publication: Senshi Sosho volume 26, The Operations of the Navy in the Dutch East Indies and the Bay of Bengal. You will find some new particulars about the operations at Tarakan in this volume. It is our intention to publish this volume (about the same size as S.S. volume 3) in September 2018. We will conclude our series with an air force volume which will be published in 2020."
