Re: Take Budapest! (Will be out this July)

News update: Last week I received from the publisher a formated, but still unedited pdf copy of the book. Currently it is 286 pages long (save the index) and contains 18 portrait photos, 39 'action' photos, 17 maps and 9 OOB charts. Generally speaking, it looks good and reads well. All the best Kamen

Re: Take Budapest! (Will be out this July)

The problem with the latter one is that I was not satisfied with the quality and quantity of the available factual material and I had to re-write (and expan...
