D-Day: The Battle for Normandy - 99p at Amazon

The Kindle version of Antony Beevor's D-Day: The Battle for Normandy is currently 99p at Amazon UK , and you can add the audio book for an extra £2.99 (normally £20.99) if you buy the Kindle book.

The timing makes it sound like changing to an ANNUAL is quite plausible!

Him and his sister both have some of thei...

Subscribing to posts & forums

The new forum has some new features, and some features work slightly differently. When you post a reply to a topic, you can elect to be notified when replies are posted - simply make sure the "Notify me when a reply is posted" box is ticked. To have this ticked by default, go to the User Control Pan...
