"The Jet Night Fighters" now available

Gents,

I thought I'd share this here as well - given that my "Mosquitos über Berlin" book will not become available in English any time soon (if at all) for a variety of reasons, I have picked up the lose end and created an English "little brother"... now available. The full story (including the links to Amazon) is here: http://www.chronicles-of-the-luftwaffe.de/?p=932

Andreas

Hi Andreas,

Thanks for the notification, and congratulations on another publication. I already have "Mosquitoes über Berlin", and this looks to be a useful supplement. Order placed.

Regards,
Leon Venter

my copy arrived yesterday ..it is a fine addition to the 'library'!

some 'strange' formatting decisions (city names in italics, present tense mission diary), but these are minor-league criticisms.

..super initiative to produce it at such a good price point - and let Amazon pick up the postage!

Got mine too, it makes a good first impression.
The only glitch is that the book arrived in a slightly damaged condition which unfortunately becomes typical for Amazon deliveries these days...

Hi Maciej,

thanks for picking up a copy first - then, I read about the problem with Amazon's delivery and damaged books (a general issue, other authors are also complaining about it). The general feedback was to return the book if it is too bad and Amazon should replace it at no charge.

I had ordered two myself to test - one came fine, the other one had a slight dent and none of them was plastic-sealed (which is great for the environment but means that in wet weather conditions the delivery may suffer damage). I have no way around it - I wish, Amazon would put up an option for the packaging (obviously at a cost) but at the moment, none...

I hope, you are still able to enjoy the copy - otherwise, you might want to try the return-to-sender option...

Cheers,
Andreas
