The 8th Waffen-SS Cavalry Division

I have read this book and thoroughly studied the content. Here is the review that I recently posted on Amazon. "The text of this book is well-written and the English translations of the many German documents cited in the book is excellent. It is an easy book to read. This 160-page book provides an a...

Re: Waffen-SS signed RKT photos and documents for sale

Some off-topic comments have been deleted. It would be nice if Peter could provide some more information concerning authenticity

Re: Waffen-SS signed RKT photos and documents for sale

Peter - I don't believe that it is good form to be selling "signed" photos of W-SS officers and letters. Besides, how do you know these signatures are authentic? Some years back a fellow from Sweden was requesting from me that I cut out signatures from letters that I had received from vets and send ...

Re: New Book on the German Armed Forces

Thanks for the heads up Antonio. I'll read this book for sure since I will be in Greece next May. Hopefully, this book contains information about the deserved retribution by the Greek partisans against the German invader.

Norwegian Volunteers of the Waffen-SS

My copy of this excellent book by Geir Brenden and Tommy Natedal arrived a few days ago and I just finished reading it. This book is BIG, 523 pages in large format. I was expecting a book of photos only with minimal captions. The content of this book is very well organized. There is an extensive amo...

Re: Feldgrau Author: Charles Trang

I understand from the author that Wiking 1 and Wiking 3 are now out of print. Heimdal is expected to reprint those volumes.

Re: Feldgrau Future - Moving Forward

Jim - Where did you live in Italy - Vicenza? My wife and I will be back in Italy next June, spending 3 weeks near Sorrento and in the Puglia area. I'll bet that you miss the good food.

Re: Recommended Publishers & Author Experiences

I agree with Annelie when it comes to dust jacket covers. But I go one step further. For more than 25 years I have encased the paper dust jacket cover in a plastic mylar cover such as one often finds in libraries.

Recommended Publishers & Author Experiences

I believe that this topic will be useful to aspiring new authors. The recent bad experiences that a good friend had with a publisher in the UK point out the need for experienced authors to share their knowledge and provide some pointers to members of the forum who are planning to publish a book. Ear...

Re: Strafvollzugslager der SS- und Polizei

I have just finished reading all 573 pages of Stuart Emmett’s remarkable new book, “Strafvollzugslager der SS und Polizei”. This book is about a very dark side of the Waffen-SS. It covers in great detail the judiciary system of the SS with its many prisons and jails throughout Europe where soldiers ...

"Wiking" Volume 3 by Charles Trang

I have been studying Volume 3 for over a week. This 567-page book published by Heimdal covers the period May 1943 - May 1945. I believe that this is the best book that Charles Trang has ever produced. Trang brings together a tremendous amount of useful information from multiple sources and presents ...
