Managed to get all done, in, designed,proofed, and now out of my hands for volume 5 before two new surgeries I must deal with soon.
So I'll be "out of the loop" again while dealing with those medical issues. A big problem for the volume 5 delay was incompatibility with publisher's design software, both initially and an unusual amount of design corrections that needed to be done. I'm never behind in my own self imposed schedule and deadline. An October/November 2010 release, Polizei Division was always a high interest unit for me. The book covers in detail
development of the division's elements, probably the most complicated of the major Waffen-SS divisions. A very complex history of a very historically overlooked formation. Honor Clasp and Close Combat Clasp in Gold holders, Feldpost lists, and an addendum of new data and images for the previous volumes continues as established in the series. 315 pages and 140 illustrations. Of course as always, publisher's are behind me and I'm half way through the next manuscript. 250 volume 5 copies will be signed and numbered, those wishing those can get on Bender Publishing's mail list here:
