The text on the cover is French only.

Re: The Soviet Paratroopers, 1930-1945

H&C tend to do simultaneous releases in French and English for many of their titles and often the initial cover released is the French one which they use for both titles. As to the page length and content, the book is similar in length to other ones they have released (the maginot line series, CharsB and D2 books). It does mention in the description that it is picture heavy so if it is anything like the other books I own from them, it will be graphic/picture heavy with a decent amount of text. It will not be a text heavy in depth study as that is not what H&C produce. Having said that it will be one I add to my book shelf given the quality of the other books I've bought.

small difference, would expect a book that has a title "The Soviet Paratroopers, 1930-1945" should be at least 600 pages

Re: The Soviet Paratroopers, 1930-1945

Strange when I open the Casemate page it says due restrictions they can´t send the book to my country. Well I won´t buy it but never saw that before! Which kind of restrictions they can have on Brazil?

"Unfortunately, due to sales rights restrictions, we cannot offer The Soviet Paratroopers, 1930-1945 for sale in your country."

Casemate is a distributor of titles for an assortment of publishers. What this means is they haven't obtained the rights to distribute Histoire & Collections books in Brazil. Someone else may have those rights, the publisher may be selling directly to Brazil or, as sometimes happens, no one has purchased the rights to sell into Brazil .
As to the other post about the book being 600 pages, yes that would be nice and if it was coming from an academic press or someone like Helion who does more text heavy books, I'd expect that. That is not what Histoire and Collections does though, so not what to expect from them. Just like Osprey produces mostly small intro paperbacks and not heavily footnoted academic studies or McDonald's isn't the place you go to for an elegant 3 course meal. It's not the company's skill set so to expect them to produce such a product is unrealistic. All we can hope is that a publisher will some day produce the comprehensive in depth history some people seem to be looking to purchase .
