    Many thanks for the "Heads-up"

    These days I try to avoid hard copies but I've bought the Kindle version of Dunkirk for the magnificent sum of 99p :)

    Best regards

    The Hawker Typhoon became the epitome of ground-attack aircraft during the Second World War.

    The aircraft was originally intended to be a replacement for the Hurricane and entered service with the RAF during 1941.

    However, in the role of the interceptor fighter it proved calamitous.

    Rushed development of the airframe led to structural and engine failures.

    I picked up Forgotten Victory First Canadian Army and the Cruel Winter of 1944-45 and Pipeline to Battle an Engineers adventures with the British Eight Army

    Yes, we had a new batch of Haynes tank ones appear a month or so ago including the T34. It's always best to ask as they often appear on the stands rather than the shelves.

    "What do you mean by stands?" asks a slightly befuddled Canadian.

    I will be in the UK next month and hope to arrive with an empty backpack and possibly return with one full of books. :)

    There is a remaindered bookshop in the UK,.Chris.
    Called 'The Works' & present in most towns. Very hit & miss, often full of rubbish, but just recently all those Haynes Military manuals have been cropping up there for £6.
    T34, Great War Tank, Sherman, Chieftain, Mosquito, Stuka, RAF100 etc. all spotted (&/or bought) recently.
    No guarantee, but when one branch has none, another may have the full set (Brighton very fertile last weekend. Maybe not the epicentre of military history.)

    I'm waiting for the PzIII, Centurion or Jeep one to crop up, & am a bit annoyed at missing the RR armoured car.

    By stands I meant displays in the centre of the shop. Or should I say 'center of the store'?

    Thanks idler! I will have to remember to look at those if I find a Works.

    Would very much like the book on the Centurion or Chieftain - at least!

    The Chieftain one's very good indeed.
    Same Author as 'Into The Vally', with apparent service on the thing.
