I can give some more details now:

It has five maps and ten photographs.

Standard print edition (hardback and paperback) has 174 pages, large print edition (hardback) has 210 pages.

It has a foreword, written by Dr Peter Caddick-Adams.

It features Tetrarch tanks in the light tank role, Lysanders bombing and strafing targets, and an SOE agent managing to get on board a Vichy French submarine and being given a guided tour of Vichy defences. I'll not tell you any more, but I can honestly say that I really enjoyed researching and writing this one. It really was a very strange campaign.

Do you have a preference who we use Russ, who is better for you?

I make the most money if you buy the ebook direct, even with the discount. But it's not a large difference so honestly, buy the format you prefer from wherever you'd prefer to buy it.

My wife controls my kindle account so I've placed a request. I'll try and be good for a few days and do the jobs she wants :lol: :lol: :lol:
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Looks like the list price should be £17.99. Individual retailers may charge less or (unlikely) more. If you want to order it, quote the ISBN: 978-1-912680-28-3. That way you can be sure that you're getting the large print hardback rather than the standard print one.

Carl,

The question should be, regardless of which version you buy, where are you getting the money from?? Are you holding back some of the carers allowance I am entitled too?? :evil:

Me and you need to have some serious words about your finances boy!! :lol: :lol:
