Black Cross/Red Star, Air War over the Eastern Front, Volume 4 arrived here from the printer today!

Black Cross/Red Star, Air War over the Eastern Front, Volume 4 arrived here from the printer today!

And it looks absolutely great! The printing company has made a great work!
I attach a couple of photos. Check out the one with me holding the book: No, it isn't that huge - it just looks that way in the photo. But it is big. I also attach a couple of photos where Volume 4 is compared to Volume 2.
You can order a personally signed hardcover copy with aircraft color profiles etc from me at:

vaktelforlag@gmail.com

Price: USD$60 plus USD$25 in postage.

Congratulations. I can see the gloss or semi-gloss finish of the paper and the artwork is superb.


Best,
Ed

Oh dear. I'm going to have to re-arrange the shelving in my bookcase to cater for the larger format.

A happy activity.

Wonderful addition to Eastern Front warfare, and well done to the author for the huge effort over the years providing books of such interest.
We military book collectors are so lucky to have such authors who spend years collecting information and writing the books, and I'm sure in many cases the only gain is the satisfaction of seeing ones work in print...….

Congratulations, Christer!! Your work on the air war over the Eastern Front is unparalleled in detail and scope, especially since you present both sides of the story.

P.S. Amazon.com here in the backward American colonies is now listing Volume 4.

Re: Black Cross/Red Star, Air War over the Eastern Front, Volume 4 arrived here from the printer today!

For a personally signed copy of the hardcover edition with aircraft color profiles etc:
Transfer US $ 60 to Christer’s Paypal account vaktelforlag@gmail.com
and send your address to Christer at vaktelforlag@gmail.com
Plus postage:
25 USD or 23 EUR outside of Sweden
Sweden 105 SEK

Note:

The hardcover edition contains color profiles. ISBN 978-91-88441-21-8.

(There is a paperback edition which is entirely b&w, except for the cover. ISBN 978-91-88441-50-8. That can be bought in bookstores only in the United States. The reason is that I have no U.S. distributor, so that one is a print on demand edition. But personally signed copies of the hardcover edition with aircraft color profiles etc. can be ordered from me from anywhere in the world.)

For book retailers: E-mail vaktelforlag@gmail.com

And please help by spreading the word about the book. I am publishing this myself, and I saved no money on quality, so it is a quite expensive product. But I have no budget for marketing, so...



If a radio station in the United States could talk about it (perhaps make a phone interview with me) it would be fantastic. Also, any recommendation for magazines that might write reviews would be fantastic.

Reviews on amazon.com and amazon UK will of course be more than welcome!
