Book Sources - Online and Real World

Post by Frederick L Clemens » Tue Nov 19, 2002 11:54 am

This thread will be the place to post your information and questions about finding German military-related books and other publications both online and on the street. Have an especially good or a bad experience with a dealer? Let us know...but be aware that dealers have the right to respond to accusations, so keep the petty stuff to a minimum.

Here are some resources to start with -

Feldgrau book search:

Dealers who support this site:

Other online sources I have found: (hot tip - find a good book for auction on ebay? check out the other book search engines for other copies before bidding too much on the ebay copy!)

Have your own recommended site or bookdealer?

I did not see this in the list so I will add this one. I stumbled on it by accident. It seamed a little funky but I gave it a try. They have a good selection of books I have not seen at other places and there prices and service were top notch. Also fast shipping.

In Canada and North America in general try, massive bookstore with a huge database, you can get books in many different languages and hard to find titles. Also can submit book reviews to the database for other potential customers to read.
Now that little sale should get me an Indigo VIP discount card shouldn't it??

The best meta-search engine I know of is, which searches, among others, alibris and abebooks, as well as amazon. Specially good for second-hand, out-of-print books in German, but English search results are also good.

If you're looking for a particular title, try
Someone found one for me last week, so I went on there. You can get used books for really low prices. The one I got ran from $8-$40. For research, all I'm worried about it being able to read it, so I got the $8 one!

Charlie: Are any of these places military history specialists, or are these general topic sites? It's cool either way, just curious. :)

If you are looking for someone who sells books online really cheap, try this bookseller I have been buying books from Tollehaus for the past 5 years or so, and I have never been disappointed with his books or service.
