A nice surprise in the post

After a very busy day at work, it was nice to come home to find that two books that I had ordered from the Military Book Club had been delivered.

They are published by Amber Books Ltd as part of 'The Essential Vehicle Identification Guide' series, and are both written by David Porter. The books are:

  • SOVIET TANK UNITS 1939 – 45.

I look forward to reading them over the next week or so.


  1. Ah, lovely books! I'm not much a book-fiend, saving my money for models, but it can be very nice.

    I've also stumbled on the knack of buying a book for a period and ordering miniatures at the same time, so as you read the book your enthusiasm mounts and the figures are ready and waiting for you!


  2. I have never thought about it before, but that is a really good idea! It is certainly an excellent means of maintaining interest in a project that you are just starting.

    I must admit that in the past I have ordered figures from manufacturers who took so long to deliver that my interest had waned so much that I had moved on before putting paint on a single figure … which is probably why my shed is so full!
