Re: Black Cross - Red Star. Air War over the Eastern Front, Vol. 4: Stalingrad to Kuban 1942-1943.

Christer,

For those planning on ordering from Amazon, which edition will they have? The hardcover (for presupporters and Europe), or the soft cover without color (originally intended for the North American market)?

Enjoy!

Frank.

I just wish more were interested in this style of history instead of the endless monographs on individual aircraft and aces. Yawn. You are the only one who has covered the history of the air war over the Eastern Front comprehensively in English (or any other language for that matter). You deserve high praise and hearty congratulations!

Larry de Zeng

P.S. Please let us know when distribution of this latest volume takes place so we can get our orders in.
Wow, thank you very much for your most kind and encouraging words, Larry! That's what keeps me working - like yesterday, when I was working from 1500 hrs (pm) to 0600 hrs (am) the next morning on the selection of photos for Chapter 6 (in all +30 photos for that chapter, most of which are from German and Russian pilot veterans' private photo albums).

I made it! On Sunday I am leaving for Singapore, and now everything has been sent to the graphic designer, who in a week has finished everything but Chapter 2 and 18, which she will do on Monday. So the book will be published in August 2019, definitely now.

There is an updated cover for Black Cross/Red Star, Vol. 4, with fantastic artwork by Jerry Boucher (who has the copyright of the artwork). Here is my own sketch. The final cover will be made by a professional.

And so it shall be. All layout of the book is finished. We are only waiting for the index to be completed. Then off to the printer.
