Glad to see the "old" Chevron Publishing team back in action!

To be honest

Not sure how much new details this book will give compared with Jan Horn's KG 76 book which covers the period 01.01.1944 to 08.05.1945

Would be nice with a comparison from someone who can afford to buy both....

Cheers

Well, Jan Horn's book is 88 Euros and I'll wait to see the price for this one.


Best,
Ed

I haven't seen Jan Horn's book but, if he keeps strictly to that timespan, it would exclude III./KG 76's first operation with the Ar 234, on 24 December 1944.

(Full disclosure: I have contributed unpublished material from my researches to Forsyth and Creek)

Since I already bought Horn's book, THAT price is of no concern to me.....:)

With regard to dates, I don't follow you. Horn's book is from Jan 1st 1944, so it covers the transition from Ju 88 to Ar 232 very well. The book is very awkwardly placed in a bookshelf, so without looking I am pretty sure it covers the X-mas eve 1944 well enough!
However, depending on how much material you have contributed, I must confess it makes Creek/Forsyth's book that much more interesting...
Is it all ULTRA stuff or something more?

Cheers

Sorry, my mistake!

Now THAT would be a revolutionary story!

Mostly ULTRA but some other things too: just over 13,000 words of raw material in all but I don't know what they'll use in the end.
