Re: Update on Vol. 5 of Chris Shores' et al "A History of the Mediterran Air War"

Michel,
Did you obtain a hard back copy, or a PDF?

Where did you purchase your copy of MAW5? We did prepare internally a PDF of MAW5 without an index, which allowed us to build the index with the proper page numbers.

Enjoy!

Frank.

Hard back copy by Amazon

For the same price,the previous vol.(5) has 638 pages,not counting the index pages.

A big difference (450 not counting the index pages (75),when it's announced 600 p.

Michel,

Thanks for the information. Was that Amazon.com in the US, or Amazon.co.uk in the UK?

Enjoy!

Frank.

Enjoy!

If it's "Perfect Binding" (like some of the previous ones) you'll end up with 526 pages on the floor in time.....
"Perfect Binding" -- the cheapest, most imperfect binding ever devised for books.....

Amazon Review of Volume1

Mrs H Harris
2.0 out of 5 stars Hopeless binding
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 9, 2020
Verified Purchase
I purchased this book in June 2019, but have only just begun to read it. The work is superb with fine quality printing and photographs. However by the time l reached page 145 the pages began to come away from the binding add hardcovers. . Now each pages comes out of the binding as l turn it over, Loose pages are now nearly impossible to keep in order. Sadly the binding used was clearly never fit for .purpose.

Would you believe my copy arrived minus the dust-jacket.....(very frustrating, but the books contents are of the usual very high standard).
