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.
