I like to know if anyone of you know the books called: " Battles and leaders of the civil war " ? I think the first outcome was 1887. I got some informations and it seems to be interesting.
A seller from the US wants to get 400$ plus 150$ delivery-costs. I really want to get it but its a lot of money. Its a special edition in 8 books. I’m not sure if its okay to pay that much. I mean for me, the price might be correct. What do you think?

I wouldn’t pay that for it. I think I may have a copy, or I may have shifted it years ago.

I still have a copy. I haven’t looked at it in years. I don’t think I would buy it today.

Have you looked through the Official Records? It is now online. Years ago I bought it on CD. (For those of you younger folks, CD stands for compact disc, which is a thing people used to use for removeable mass storage for computers.)

There’s also a PDF available I think.

Great, now I want to get that…:joy:
That seems to be really good but I believe to remember that there are only 2 people who have a complete edition. I will not imagine what’s the price for that…

I am sure it is but I don’t like PDF, books have to be made on paper; maybe this is the time to change my mind

Nice collection of Ferdinand/Elefant pictures with well written captions. Easily the largest collection of wartime and museum walk around photos, I’ve ran across for $16 to $20 in a hardback book. The book offers the model builder details on why the main gun shield was mounted by the factory with the bolts to the inside and flipped by maintenance so that the shield mounted with bolts to the outside.

Riveting read - can’t put it down .
True story of the sinking of the bulk carrier Marine Electric in 1983 with only three survivors. Woven around the story is a narrative of greed and stupid protectionist collusion between the government, marine unions and ship owners that led to an economic situation favoring rusting hulks . The Merchant Marine suffered the second highest casualty rate in WW II - only the Marine Corps had higher losses. The post war years weren’t very kind either . Read this and you will get pissed off .
