Now delayed until April 15th - albeit reduced to £17.95 (from £19.95).

Hoping to collect a copy from Caliver at Salute the following week.

its now being shipped from the printers and Helion are expecting delivery to the office by the middle of next week.

I'm currently working on the authors follow up on the Battle of the White Mountain which will be out in the spring

Many thanks for the update - definitely one for next month. I do find the shift in release dates frustrating but the books are normally worth the wait.

Looking at both the 'Century of the Soldier' and the 'Reason to Revolution' series, there are so many books of interest. Need to sell a kidney to afford them all and build a library extension to store them in...

I had been looking forward to this, but an early (anonymous, which can sometimes be suspicious, but not always) review* states that the author has written very little that is specifically about the Bavarian army itself but the text is full largely of generalities covering all armies of the period, whilst he does cite several sources in his bibliography that could have provided such data, but are in German.

Has anyone bought it and found it valuable?
