Thanks for all the nice comments, both professional and personal. Apologies for the long silence... there's quite a bit happening at the moment. There's a few new book projects on the boil, two of which will appear this year. One is a translation of a Russian book, and the other is a photo volume about Stalingrad. I'm particularly excited about the latter, which I have been working on for well over a year. I've been gathering Stalingrad photos from many sources, but mostly from private collections. Never before has the Stalingrad battle been seen like this. Just imagine RZM's "God, Honor, Fatherland"... but about Stalingrad!
I'm also researching another book, which I expect to complete early 2009. I don't want to say much more except to say that it will follow (in great detail) one battalion, from its formation and blooding on the Ostfront to its destruction at Stalingrad. I've got loads of amazing material and photos for it.
Richard, I've been very slack updating my website but will do so in the next week. Unfortunately, being a one-man band means I have to prioritise.
For all of you in the US, I just want to let you know that I've got a table at this year's "Show of Shows" in Louisville, KY (21-24 February 2008). My table will be listed under "Tim Curley", so if you're there, look me up!
It's true, I was in Volgograd last August as part of a tour based on my books. We had a great time. We even got inside the infamous Grain Elevator for a Soviet-defender's perspective. Let me tell you, all 15 of us were grinning like idiots!
OK, I won't bore you any longer. Just want to thank you all for the support, and for buying my books.
All the best,
