Re: Mediterranean Air War by Chris Shores

The price at amazon.co.uk went down to £26.00 (I bought my copy for £34.00 just a few days ago). Grab while it lasts.

News: My copy has just arrived. Looks beautiful and very informative. Unfortunately, it came with a hefty crease on the dust jacket. Will these people ever learn to wrap books with some bloody bubble foil, not just cardboard?

Re: Mediterranean Air War by Chris Shores

It's now got as far south as Adelaide! Well worth the wait, it's an excellent publication. Pre-ordering at The Book Depository got the price down to under $A35, including P&H. So there's the tip.

Still not available at Amazon.com (lists 1-3 months to ship) but the price did go up from the time that I placed my order.

Re: Mediterranean Air War by Chris Shores

If you are in the US and want to order from Europe, make sure you get the exchange rate for the Euro, meaning if the price is listed only in Euros, find out what it will cost in dollars. I just ordered a book from Germany and at the time, it was 1.23 dollars to one Euro.

Thanks to some unnamed peoples close to this book's geographic area, the value of Euro against dollar has taken terrible blows this year...

Re: Mediterranean Air War by Chris Shores

Ed don't forget the bank fees for making the exchange of dollars to euros along with the added postage to safely get it here.

Re: Mediterranean Air War by Chris Shores

Would there be interest in an Errata list, either as part of the forum, or on a separate page somewhere? It is obviously very well researched, but in a complex work such as this there will always be some errors, or new research shedding light on things that were unknown at the time of print.

All the best

Andreas

Re: Mediterranean Air War by Chris Shores

Got my copy today.

This is an excellent book and a worthy upgrade of Fighters over the Desert. The way I see it this is now the standard reference work questions and answers should circulate around when it comes to the NA campaign.

For those who hesitate, don't, just buy it!

Now we have to wait for volume 2...

Cheers
Stig
