This tells about the pushback of the German forces on the North Shoulder and is a new serie on the Ardennes books
If anyone likes to know the German titles, just send me an e-mail.
To see those titles go to my homepage and click on the bookstore.
Battle of the Ardennes "North Shoulder" 1944-45
Furthermore are books on Stalingrad done in bith languages:
- The Battle for Stalingrad - Nemesis on the Volga (J. Stempel's diary)
- The Battle for Stalingrad - The Battle for the Factories
- The Battle for Stalingrad - Operation Winterstorm (relief operation on Stalingrad), this was a book done under the title by Shelf Book Storm over the Steppe, but because they couldn't stay with the terms about the contracts (same happened with Flak 88, Knight Gunner, SS Flak, Iron Horsemen, which are all my titles), I decided to continue the book in this form, with more pictures, and accounts.
See for those books Geert Rottiers site at
or go to

Reviews updated, HERE. You can also read the first chapter on-line, there's a link from my website.Tony Williams wrote:The Foresight War has collected a number of reviews, so I've posted them all here: http://www.quarry.nildram.co.uk/TFWreviews.htmTony Williams wrote:Five books on military technology so far:
'Rapid Fire: the Development of Automatic Cannon, Heavy Machine Guns and their Ammunition for Armies, Navies and Air Forces'
'Flying Guns: Development of Aircraft Guns, Ammunition and Installations' in three volumes (co-authored with Emmanuel Gustin): World War 1 (1914-32); World War 2 (1933-45) and The Modern Era (since 1945).
'Assault Rifle: the Development of the Modern Military Rifle and its Ammunition' (co-authored with Maxim Popenker) which covers WW2 developments as well as those since.
Also, a novel of an alternative WW2 'The Foresight War'. This starts with the assumption that a British military historian from the present day wakes up one morning in 1934, with proof that he comes from the future. How might events happen differently? Especially if the same thing happened to a German historian...
Details of all books and how to get them are on my website, where I have also posted a lot of articles, many of them dealing with WW2 technology (especially guns and ammunition).

The cost from the publisher, AuthorHouse, $28.99 and is three dollars less than the retail price. the ISBN is 1425938760 . Randy Trawnik who wrote the forward called Neumann -- "the wonder disk."

“The Fallen Generals”
“The Fallen Generals” documents the Generals of the German Armed Forces who died during Wrld War II and in its aftermath. Almost 900 officers of General rank ended their lives during the fateful years 1939 - 1945 or in the years immediately following, some falling in battle, some committing suicide, while others were executed or died in prison camps as the victorious Allies meted out their punishment on the defeated Wehrmacht. It is a compilation of data collected from wide-ranging sources, and provides an analysis of the losses, as well as a listing of the Generals and the circumstances of their demise.
“The Royal Hungarian Armed Forces, 1919 - 1945"
This book provides a vital reference document for any historian interested in the order of battle of Hungary’s military forces. It is the result of research materials obtained in both Europe and the USA and is one of the very few books available on the subject in the English language. The book has won high praise from the World Federation of Hungarian Veterans and from military historians world-wide.
Besides a chronological listing of the holders of the highest posts in High Command and Defense Ministry, and field commanders down to Brigade level, the book contains biographical information on over 600 Generals of the Royal Hungarian Army.
“La Regia Marina, 1919 - 1945"
“La Regia Marina” presents the order of battle of the Royal Italian Navy during the period following World War I up to the end of the Second World War. The book contains a chronological listing of the commanders of the major naval commands, brief histories of the ships of the Navy, and also includes biographical details of over 200 Admirals of the Regia Marina.
“The Armed Forces of Latvia, 1918 - 1940"
This book is a rarity, being the only English-language history of the Armed Forces of the little-known Republic of Latvia from the time of its independence in 1918 to its occupation by the Soviet Union in 1940. The book explains how the fledgling Latvian Army fought for its nation’s independence and the describes the development of the Army during the years that followed. Also included is a chronological listing of the commanders of the High Command and the field units down to Regiment level, as well as details of the military careers of all the senior officers.
“The Luftwaffe 1935 - 1945",
“The Luftwaffe 1935 - 1945" presents the order of battle of the German Air Force from the time of its “uncloaking”in1935 to the end of World War II. The book contains a chronological listing of the commanders of the major air commands, details of the lesser air units, and also includes biographical details of the of the senior Generals of the Luftwaffe (Generalfeldmarschall, Generaloberst, General der Flieger).
“Between Kaiser and Führer"
“Between Kaiser and Führer" deals with the German Army (Reichswehr) during the period 1919 - 1933, that is to say, between the end of World War I (the end of the Kaiser’s reign) and the beginning of Hitler’s Third Reich. Through the Treaty of Versailles, the victorious allies imposed severe restrictions on the size and structure of the German Army, yet even before Hitler came to power and began disregarding the terms of the treaty, the Reichswehr already was preparing for a future return to strength. This book presents the order of battle of the Reichswehr, and contains biographical details of the Generals that led the German Army during this time of rebuilding.

I have to say I did open the box with childlike-feverish excitement when it arrived yesterday.
The finished article looks so much better than the drafts and the proofs. To have an actual book to hold rather than sheets of paper makes a world of difference.
I'd be interested in feedback, and for any corrections. There's likely to be a paperback edition so I might be able to slip in the corrections although I'm not planning any wholesale revision.

I would like to take this opportunity and introduce to everyone my new book, Rampant Lion , chronicling the life of Eduard Ritter von Schleich, the WWI flying ace. It has taken some five years to get to this point, and I have to say that I am quite excited about the finished product! At this point I would like to describe the book in detail, in order to let all of you all know what has been included between the covers:
Hardcover: 389 pages
Author: Darren J. Whiteside
Publisher: A & S Publishing (March 31st, 2007)
Product Dimensions: 8.75 x 5.75 x 1.25 inches
Shipping Weight: 1.50 pounds
Price: $29.95 US
The book contains the following:
1) Over 150 black/white and color photos - some never before published.
2) The most complete list to date of von Schleich’s aerial victories, developed from his military records, personal accounts, and combat reports. Victims are mentioned when known. Maps are also included showing the claim locations.
3) Many translated personal narratives, written by von Schleich himself, regarding his many aerial combats. His flight in a captured French Spad, a dogfight where he was out-numbered 24 to 1, and his ‘triplet’ (when he scored three victories during a single engagement), are just some of his exploits covered.
4) A comprehensive listing of all military assignments, which spanned nearly 40 years. His awards and decorations have also been assessed during this same period.
5) Von Schleich’s post war and World War II careers are covered in detail, including many interesting facts about the early German airlines, as well as the birth of the German Air Force (the Luftwaffe).
6) His friends and acquaintances over the years are discussed at length, presenting a human side to this sometimes larger-then-life military figure.
7) The military units he commanded are examined thoroughly. The reader will get to know not only the structure of these units, but also a little about his flying companions from both world wars.
8) His family background, social affairs, and professional aspirations are also given fair treatment, with many new revelations regarding both the personal difficulties and triumphs of the ‘Black Knight’.
9) Thorough note sections, a bibliography, and a complete index are provided, allowing the reader to cross-reference a great majority of information presented in the text.
Please visit my website at http://www.rittervonschleich.com for a short biography on von Schleich, along with book ordering information. I accept PayPal, money orders, and certified checks. No personal checks please.
If you have already visited my website, you will notice that I plan to donate ALL my profits to the United States Civil Air Patrol. This is a very good youth organization, teaching children about both the theory and practice of flight, along with educating them about the rich history of aviation. I owe much of who I am today to this organization.
I am currently offering my book for an introductory price of $24.95 US to all who purchase it during the pre-publication phase. My printer has informed me that the book will be ready by mid to late March of this year. I am also offering FREE shipping for all US orders (media mail only). International orders will be shipped Global Priority at a reduced cost of $6.50 US during this period as well.
My business email address is email@example.com
Thank you for your time,

Hi Wolfkin,Wolfkin wrote:Hello HaEn!
Glad to see that your book will be published soon. You talked about it before on another thread and I remember about the style that you chose to write the book in, you said on how you wrote it as more of a story than as an autobiography. I am curious as to why this format? Was it easier to write in a story-format than as an autobiography-format?
I am curious because most WWII Veterans have always written about their experiences in an autobiography-format or as a memoir-format or something along those lines. Having your book as a story-format is indeed interesting. Is it explained in your book that you are indeed a veteran or do you choose to not reveal that fact?
It's meanwhile 2007 march, and it still has not been printed.
In the mean time the format has been changed from a "story" (fly on the wall looking in) ", to an semi autobiography.
It also has been reduced in volume from over 700 pages, to about 450.
Look at my post of today in this section, and you'll be up to date again.
Thanks for your post.
