Stevin- PM me your address.
Have to make sure I have Erichs, too...
Besides that, I actually have two more copies (4 total)... so if anyone else wants a copy, let me know...
(Apologies for forgetting about this! Slipped my mind while work was crazy, and it just never slipped back in!!)

I appreciate very much you wanting to part with one! I have recently been discussing the very topic of teaching WW2 in High school with my brother in law, who does exactly that, teaching History in California.
please DO sign it so I can add another post to the "Inscribed Books" Thread!

Martin, that's a different volume. Just send me a check or money order for $199.99 to cover shipping, and I'll send it right over!
Stevin- teaching WW2 in High School, eh? Has your brother-in-law mentioned anything about "No Teacher Left Employed'?
Ooops... I mean "No Child Left Behind"?...
By the way, we (I) do have a couple extra copies of the Prentice Hall 8th Air Force book. If anyone wants one, let me know...
And I'll actually mail out the books!!!
If I slack off AGAIN on mailing these, I'll change my nickname to "LazyD"!

This is a general post for everyone, however the subject, a book, is written in Dutch.
During the recent Commando trip I was speaking with Pat Churchill, ex 4 SS Brigade and yes a distant relation of Winston. He was saying how tired he is of people always asking about Normandy while ignoring the many other major Commando operations. His particular passion is for the raid on Walcheren in November ’44.
He mentioned a book he’d contributed towards and later that day produced a copy the author presented him with. I would describe it as a photo account with accompanying text. It’s A4 size and 96 page thick plus covers and of good quality paper. As said, written in Dutch but available with a small pamphlet offering English versions of the photo captions only.
The details are:
Walcheren bevrijd – november 1944 by J.N. Houterman (1994)
(een fotografisch overzicht van de operaties ter bevrijding van Walcheren in november 1944)
