Any new LW bios in the offing?

Guys:

It's my annual quest for new reading material;

I know Meimberg, Schuck & Fischer have released their War Bios(I'm still hoping Meimberg's gets translated into English...); are there any others 'in the pipeline' that I should anticipate?

Thx

NM

At the risk of appearing to being a crass American, I would love for the Muenchberg bios to feature English-language editions.

Same here...I admit to being maxed out language wise with Greek Spanish & English---anything else & I might become mute.

Might have missed information elsewhere on the forum but are there any news on publication date for the Lützow and Meimberg books in english edition? Have been waiting for ages!

Re: Any new LW bios in the offing?

I'm curious too. When are they supposed to come out in English? I'm still in the process of learning German, and though I'm better at it, I still have a ways to go before I can claim to be fluent. Then I'm going to have to get a second job to afford the tons of German language books I have always wanted to read.

Re: Any new LW bios in the offing?

Although not a biography of a single flier luftfahrtverlag-start is coming out with Die Ritterkreuzträger der Kampfflieger Pt.2. This provides a brief bio in both English and Deutsch of these Knights Cross winners. I have Part 1 and for someone getting back into Luftwaffe history I found it useful.
