Not long now until “Into Oblivion – Kharkov to Stalingrad: The Story of Pionier-Bataillon 305″ is in your hands. We received an advance copy from the printer a week ago and it looks really good. We expect to take delivery of the entire shipment in a couple of weeks, so fulfilment of orders will commence around mid-September. Our appreciation to everyone for the patience and support. And thanks to all those who have pre-ordered the book. The response to this new title has been overwhelming.
The first stage of a two-tiered pre-publication offer is now over. Until we take delivery of the books, the pre-pub discount is now 10%, meaning you’ll pay AUD $72, but be quick, because before you know it, the retail price will be AUD $80. Please note: credit cards and PayPal will be charged immediately.
In a sea of constantly increasing postal prices, we have once again worked hard to find ways to make postage cheaper for our North American and UK/European customers by despatching them from the US. Postage for one copy of the book to a US address is AUD $12, to Canada AUD $26 and Air Mail to UK/Europe AUD $34. The Australian dollar has weakened considerably over the last few weeks, so now is a good time to order the book.
Lastly, we have dramatically lowered the price of many of our older titles. “Angriff” was $120, now it’s $100; “Croatian Legion” was $100, now it’s $80. The others are as follows: “An Artilleryman in Stalingrad” (now $40), “An Infantryman in Stalingrad” (now $40 for hardcover and $20 for paperback) and “Turning Point” (now $30). If you’ve missed one of our titles in the past, why not take advantage and fill that pesky gap on your library shelf.
