Re: Prayer to Jochen Prien

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
