    Hello

    I'm embarrassed to do this, but whatever...

    My book is complete and available on Amazon.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/13-History-Lancashire-Parachute-Battalion/dp/1482029162/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1370607964&sr=1-1&keywords=13+lucky+for+some

    It's called "13 - Lucky For Some" and is about the 13th Parachute Battalion. Compiled with 100's of veteran accounts it covers their full history from formation, through D-Day, across France, in the Battle of the Bulge, jumping over the Rhine and to the Far East. It also covers the infamous "Mutiny".

    With 622 pages consisting of 100's of photos, maps and diagrams.

    It looks like a very interesting book, Andrew. Thanks for letting us know about it, and there's no need to be embarrassed. I hope you will monitor this thread for feedback or questions about your book.

    Looks interesting, but both Amazon UK and Amazon US have it as out of print. Is there some other activity in the way?

    Anyway, congratulations on writing a book. I hope it will soon be available.

    My apologies for the somewhat late reply. It has took me a while to get validated...

    I will keep my eye on this site and will try to help anyone with 13 Para Bn mstters.

    The book is now in stock and I hope you all enjoy it. It took 5 years to compile and a lot of headaches! The veteran's tell the story, not me, I'm no professional author, just someone with the battalion close to my heart and a keenness to tell the story. I considered it a huge jigsaw puzzle that I simply had to find the pieces and put together.

    Regards

    Andrew
