News from Croatia
Very pleased are we to have received a package from Croatia. A publisher previously unknown to us, Despot Infinitus, kindly dispatched a selection of interesting WWII titles. Two of these are in dual Croatian and English, with the others in English. All are worth an extra measure of attention for their perspectives on topics mostly obscure in other books in English. That's certainly true of Adriatic Naval War, 1940-1945, with which we were especially impressed.

"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.
