Prayer to Jochen Prien
 
I am 65 and I'd like to know if I will ever see the last volume of your encyclopedia.

The world's oldest man, a Japanese, just died these days, aged 116.
So, don't loose hope, C-J! :)

Dear Chris,

just hold on a bit, we're working on it. Let's see what is left - JFV 12/III will go to the printer in September and chances are that it will be out before the end of the year, thus bringing an end to 1943.

Then -1944. JFV 13 will be split into three main chapters, i.e. Reichsverteidigung from January 1st to September 30th, 1944, then West including the invasion, also January 1st to September 30th and finally Reichsverteidigung and West from October 1st to December 31st. The date of September 30th marks the end of Lfl. 3. All told at least three volumes.

MTO in 1944 - JFV 14 - will be a rather small volume, whereas the eastern front will be a nightmare to tackle. 1943 was bad enough. Yet, it looks as though we'll have to face another triple as JFV 15.

JFV 16 - the end in 1945 may result in another two volumes. So all told we'll have to do at least another nine plus volumes, what with an optimistic rate of two per year would bring us well into 2017, a total of 31 + volumes over a period of then 18 years.

Don't you think it would be me who should pray ?

Anaway, thanks for your incentive.

Kind regards

Jochen Prien

Shame!

Nick,

as compared to JFV 11 with two volumes and a very substantial photo-coverage it will be difficult to stretch the 1944 material to anywhere near there - or did I miss something ?

Cheers

Jochen

Hello All,

I want to start collecting the earlier volumes in this series. Are they still readily available from the author/publishers, or am l at the mercy of rapacious second-hand dealers?

Re: Prayer to Jochen Prien
 
Col,

they're all still available through the - new - publisher Rogge Verlag GmbH or through Chrstian Schmidt KG in Munich with some of the earler volmes petering out. You can find both addresses on the net.

Regards

Jochen Prien
