Hello All,

 

     I spoke to Roger yesterday.  He informs me that the books should be in our hands in one to two weeks at the latest.  When I receive my copies, I will photograph a few select pages to let you know what you'll be getting.  For those with numbered copies, your number is secure as is your 20% discount from the price of the book--$94.95.  First time Forum member purchasers will receive a 10% discount.  Books will be signed and numbered.  If any first time buyers want the entire set, the discount will be 30%.  Happy New Year!  Jack

Forgot to specify that postage in CONUS is $5.35 for a single book. Overseas postage hasn't changed much, so $62. for a single book.

Thank you all for your most kind comments. I believe you know that my books are a labor of love. This series in particular exemplifies this as I loved jumping, and to become
a paratrooper was a boyhood dream during the war. One bit of motivation for this series was an admonishment from a fellow Forum member that stated, "What can he do that hasn't
already been done?" I love a challenge. Jack

Wondering if there is a section on rigger modified equipment, for example the shortened M1910 entrenching tool?
