I thought it was one of Osprey's best selling series!
I was wondering what was going on with RAID too and haven't gotten a definite answer.
i.e a recoiless rifle bolted onto the back of a Toyota.
And I echo the call for some non-WW2 Campaign titles in 2018.
Overall, I thought Osprey did pretty well in 2017 with its spread of titles.
Certainly, my purchases are going to be up this year.
The NVG title on Soviet Destroyers of WWII has the potential to be very interesting and I am looking forward to it.
This does, however, highlight how Osprey has neglected the navies of Russia, Italy and France in both world wars.
AT rifles (WPN) and Technicals (NVG) hmm rather niche but okay, I will probably give them a go at some point as well.
There is always some slippage but this year it seems to have reached epidemic proportions.
Hopefully the end result will be higher quality publications. I think Kuban, Imphal and Brittany are all good choices, though you could argue about whether there are others that should be produced before them.
His comment in the Forum a while back about the British attack on the French navy at Mers-el-Kébir on 3 July 1940 I thought was rather off-beam and possibly influenced by the works of people such as George E Melton who I regard as a rather biased source. Do you remember supplying Osprey’s MD with suggestions for Raid titles a couple of years or so ago?
I didn’t reply to Dr F’s comment at the time (I was rather busy) but I thought he’d keep until when he raised that subject again. While what we can see of 2018 Osprey titles on Amazon Canada’s web site is probably far from complete, it does give us something of an idea. The feedback from Osprey on Raid titles has deafening.
