    Hello,

    Let me introduce to you a brand new book from my pen. This is a big pad A4 format, 224 pages illustrated with 400 photos, 60 maps entitled Liberty roads, american logistics in France & Germany, 1944-1945. Histoire & Collections, 2014.

    Since the old green book of Ruppenthal, no book has examined the logistics of US Army in WWII with details. This book has been commented in english by military modelling http://www.militarymodelling.com/news/article/liberty-roads/19060 & by War History online http://www.warhistoryonline.com/reviews/liberty-roads-review-mark-barnes.html.

    The french historian JEAN LOPEZ, author of "Zhukov, the man who defeated Hitler", "Kursk", "Stalingrad", "Bagration" and "Berlin": said about my book "RELEVANT QUESTIONS, SOURCES OF CHOICE, WRITING CLEAR AND TREATMENT DEEP. WORK OF HIGH VOL, DENSE AND MASSIVELY ILLUSTRATED. A MUST READ ! " (Guerres & Histoire magazine).

    I'm available for any questions.

    Cheers
    Nicolas Aubin

    Do you plan on coming out with an electronic form of it? It looks quite interesting but I've been buying most of my books for my kindle recently.

    There's only one review so far at amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/Liberty-Roads-American-Logistics-Germany/dp/2352503205/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1413403037&sr=1-1&keywords=liberty+roads
    The review is quite positive but the individuals knowledge of the area doesn't seem to be very deep. Still I'm even more interested after reading it. The review did mention lots of illustration which don't translate well on to my black and white kindle.

    Sorry but no electronic form at short or long time because :
    1 My editor is a small enterprise and has no means to publish electronic book.
    2 The book is by large dimensions, largely illustrated -400 photos - and in colour. Not easy to use and read with a kindle.

    Both valid points. Thanks for the response. Good luck with sales, logistics is such an important and often understied field I applaud you for authoring this book and it's definitily on my buy list although it may be a while.

    All I can say, is that I'm damned glad to see people covering more of this sort of stuff.
    There's never really been enough mention of the Armies' tails, so more power to you.
