Top Ten of 1998
We've now activated the online voting machine for our third annual Top Ten balloting. As with the past two years, visitors are invited to cast up to ten votes for the top WWII-related, non-fiction titles published in 1998. The polls will remain open through the end of the year, the standings can be monitored as voting proceeds, and the final winners will be announced here at the beginning of January. It was a great year for new World War II titles, so please give us a hand in picking the creme de la creme.
