Actually $225 is not a bad price. It’s an excellent, well researched book. Originally published in 2013 it quickly sold out. Even a recent reprint (which was being sold at just shy of £90 a copy) sold out almost immediately. If you look on Abebooks they can be a lot pricier. Like many of the better books on Arnhem it’s a question of supply and demand. You either have to take a chance and get a copy as soon as they're published or wait and pay the premium to buy a copy when the reviews are out. Knowing the extent and quality of Jack’s research it’s not really taking a chance. Jack Didden’s other book, Kampfgruppe Walther and Panzerbrigade 107 (published 2017), now also sells at about £200 per copy.
