Need your vote on Osprey GNW book!

Post by Der Alte Fritz » Wed Jan 15, 2014 5:31 pm

Apparently Osprey Publishing is holding a vote on the title and subject of a new book for their Men At Arms series: "The Swedish Army in the Great Northern War". That is terrific news for those who are interested in the period, and with a flood of 28mm figures for the GNW slated to hit the market in 2014, the timing of such a book is excellent.


Alas, the book has only garnered 8% of the votes so far, while The Opium Wars 1830-1860 leads the field with 35% of the votes. I believe that we have sufficient numbers here on LoW to potential to swamp the poll with our votes and get this important book published. As an added bonus, perhaps a successful voting interest in the GNW will prompt Osprey to republish the out of print books covering the Army of Peter the Great.


So here is what I am asking everyone to do: go to the Osprey Publishing web site at:


http://www.ospreypublishing.com

and place your vote for the Swedish Army in the Great Northern War. You will find the poll by scrolling down the right hand side of the page.

I would have voted for it but then spotted the one on the French Army of the Crimean War. Then there's also the one on the Baltic Wars as well. :roll:

I'm more interested in the Russians and Saxons than the Swedes so not too bothered about being a traitor :lol:
Plus my French Crimean/FPW army can give your Saxons a good thrashing sometime in the future. :wink:

Apparently there are around 16,000 votes in the poll so far ( knock me over with a feather on those numbers :shock: ) so even if we gained 200-300 more votes, it probably wouldn't move the dial very much. However, keep voting to show Osprey that we have core numbers that could support the title down the road.
