    In case it's of interest, I have just published the edited diaries of my grandfather's diaries from WW2. It's called "Churchill's Colonel: The War Diaries of Lt Col Anthony Barne"

    The book is available at selected Waterstones, WH Smiths and, of course, Amazon.

    I have received a huge amount of help from various contributors to WW2Talk and would like to say a very sincere thank you to all who have taken the time to help...

    With best wishes

    I've bought a good number of Pen & Sword books and have grown fed up with their dull and repetitive artwork, but I have to say you've fared much better: that's a splendid cover image and a very nice layout/scheme.

    Looks very promising.

    I bought a copy this afternoon. I will tell you what it was like when I have read it.

    Arrives tomorrow.

    I really appreciate the feedback. If I'm honest I felt the same about P&S books but have been delighted with the design of the cover and they've been extremely reasonable to deal with...

    All best

    Was just doodling about on the internet when i came across the book on Kindle at the much reduced price of a fiver.

    Couldn't resist the urge to add it to my books about the 4th Hussars and was touched to read my name (and this site) in the acknowledgements.

    Well done Charles !

    I really enjoyed it. I am currently following 4 QOHs during the Final Offensive of Apr 45.
