Wonderful news, but as we know the future with IHRA is in some doubt, so the possibility of a Volume Two has to be suspect, as outlined by Madison Jonas in a separate Post recently.
I would, like every one dearly love to see a Volume Two, but at least we have the first one so all is not lost…..

Our regular distributors in Europe should be carrying the book as well.

We are currently working on options to get the book to Australia and New Zealand.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Update from the Stone & Stone site:


News from Colorado
14 December 2021
"We expect to receive Harvest of the Grim Reapers: The Illustrated History of the 3rd and 27th Bombardment Groups during World War II, volume I: Prewar - December 1942 on 10 January 2022.

"All of the material is based on primary source documents from the veterans, their families and US and Australian archives. All combats include accounts based on WWII Japanese documents as translated and described by Osamu Tagaya.
I have researched a full and accurate account of the development of the Doulgas A-20A-1 strafer project and the early use of the Havoc strafer bombers in combat by the men of the 89th and 8th Bomb Squadrons.
The vast majority of the 700 + photos have never appeared in other publications. Jack Fellows has done tremendous work on the aircraft (A-20, A-24 & B-25) profiles. I am sorry that Larry Hickey is not here to see this."

Less than a week to go before the delivery of Harvest of the Grim Reapers Vol. I from the printer in Dallas, Texas to our HQ in Boulder, Colorado. Once they arrive all pre-orders will then be shipped.

Wherever possible we utilized personal accounts by the pilots, crew chiefs, commanders, gunners, navigators and bombardiers to tell the story of their combat during the first year (Dec. 1941 - Dec. 1942) of WWII. These came from their personal diaries, flight logs, memoirs and interviews conducted between 1986 and 2010.

A total of 27 personal diaries from members of the 3rd and 27th Bomb Groups were located, transcribed and incorporated into the manuscript. Most are published here for the first time.

I believe that Avonmore Books will be distributing copies of Vol. I in Australia.
