    I received an email from my 'mate' Winston Ramsey today who informed me that ATB have three books currently on the go but they take around two-three years to complete. They hope to have the first of the three out before the end of this year.

    Cheers

    They usually publish an advanced notice of forthcoming titles , I will guess and say that by May notice for an August publication or August for December.

    Andrew,

    Can you check the Paradis content for me please? I'm wondering if there is more than there is in the Blitzkrieg in the West book.

    Cheers

    Andy - it's an 8 page article. The style is bound to be the same as the book so that should give you a good idea whether it's more or less.

    Cheers,

    I think I'll order a copy as BITW only has four photographs and 1/2 a page of text in it to do with Paradis..............I hope this isn't the start of me collecting all the magazines :(

    "After The Battle" is a cracking publication and was exactly what I was looking for back in 1982 which appears to be the publication date on my Issue 34 which is priced at £1.25!!

    It has served me well and i was wandering around Counties Tyrone and Armagh yesterday in the footsteps of General Patton (not to mention a few thousand others) with my copy under my arm doing the proverbial 'Then and Now' piccies.

    Have used "Motor Books" of Charing Cross Road to get back copies.

    Dont Forcet website like Third Reich In Ruins which is also a cracking website doing something similar.
