19 December 2019 – Greetings to all, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
A short update. The Second book in well underway with seven chapters finished, 62,000 words and 22 maps so far. Despite taking time off for the holidays, researching, writing and map production never really ends. The goal continues to be publication in late 2020.
I also added, for your viewing pleasure, Map #15 from book #2, at the end of the photo section. This map covers the end of operation Citadel.
My first book, second edition, remains available on Amazon.com. It would make a great X-Mass gift 😊
Thanks for your support.
6 October 2019 – A news update. My second book “From Kursk to Prague 1943-45” is in full production. This book follows the 64th Army from Stalingrad to the Kursk area, and then continues the story until the end of the war. The first five chapters, March-July 43, are basically finished with about 45,000 words and 15 maps. I continue to work with a new editor which speeds up the writing process and greatly increases the overall quality. Publishing date is still set to be sometime in late 2020.
Once again thanks for your support.
20 June – The Second Edition of my book “The 64th Army at Stalingrad 1942-43” is now live on Amazon.com. The old version is still showing up on the Amazon site as “Out of Print”, with no price, and It should go away soon.
I have been working with a new editor and this second edition has been carefully edited and reviewed. The story/text has been expanded somewhat with new material. Minor edits were performed on the maps and a new Appendix #20, was added. Overall this version is much cleaner which will make it easier to read and understand. Several somewhat confusing sections have been rewritten to clarify the text and expand the story.
My book is selling for the same price as before. The only difference is the Kindle version is not yet ready due to issues with KDP publishing.
Thanks once again for your support.

24 April – Great News! The second edition of my book is almost finished. This edition is expanded somewhat with new information and clarification of the text as needed throughout.

5 March – Once again a new paperback book update is now live on Amazon. If you purchased a Kindle version of my book you can download the updated version for free.

5 Dec – Greetings All
The updated Kindle and paperback version of my book is now live on Amazon. I believe people who bought the Kindle version can go back to Amazon.com and download the updated e-version of the book for free.
If you want to view some pages of the book, go to Amazon.com and use the “Look Inside” feature which allows you to read a few pages, and view some of the maps. This gives you a good idea of how I laid out the entire book and it also provides a hint of the detailed story about the 64th Army at Stalingrad.
Once again thanks for your support.
4 Dec – The paperback version of my book has also been updated. The same spelling, punctuation and layout issues have been fixed along with a minor amount of new text.
