I've now started a new thread for the new book For King and Kaiser, which also has its own dedicated page on our website here: http://www.royalsaxonarmy.co.uk/royalsaxonarmy/index.php/our-publications/23-for-king-and-kaiser

I can now report that the hardback edition of Fighting the Kaiser's War is now sold out from the publisher! Amazon still has copies, as do I and probably other outlets.

We finally got the coveted Jack Sheldon endorsement in the pages of Stand To! The great man picked our first book as one of his recommendations for recent works on the German side.

"Highly recommended... This highly illustrated book provides a vivid picture of war at the tactical level"

We are delighted to announce that as of 30th May 2022, our first book 'Fighting the Kaiser's War - The Saxons in Flanders 1914-1918' will be getting a second edition - this time as a mass market paperback!

This will be no mere reprint, as we spent weeks during the winter closely proof-reading the text. Facts were systematically checked against our latest notes and sources, bringing the benefit of another seven years of research to bear on our debut volume. Most obviously, the pages on the Saxon Landsturm in the 'Independent Units' chapter have been radically revised in the light of the exhaustive series of articles I wrote on that subject during lockdown! Attentive readers will find dozens of other small improvements, such as the satisfying identification of previous unknown locations in some photos (thanks to our eagle-eyed French and Belgian readers) and the clarification of potential sources of confusion. There will also be a single change in the photo selection, bringing in an irresistibly choice image of one of the most obscure of the 'Independent Units'... For the benefit of owners of the original hardback edition, I will be expanding the online addenda and corrigenda as time allows to include everything which has been amended for the paperback.

The new edition is already up for pre-order on the Pen & Sword website at the special price of £11.99 (cover price will be £14.99). We will of course be getting some copies ourselves too, and I hope to be making some public appearances this year where they can be obtained in person! Watch this space...

Nice work Andi http://1.1.1.3/bmi/1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.png

The false writing stamp is rather curious. Anyway, some faces of the Wolf(f)ersdorff Clan: 1st Adolf v. Wolffersdorff IR 104, 2nd Horst v. Wolfersdorff, GR 101.

Years ago I contacted the von Wolffersdorff Family secretary but without success (a relative, probably a son or a nephew, died near my town in 1943)

I'm pleased to report that our website is running again after some downtime while switching providers.

Full addenda and corrigenda for Fighting the Kaiser's War can be found at the link below. These were almost all discovered and addressed in time for the corrections to make into the upcoming paperback edition, as well as a little of the extra information where space permitted.

The paperback edition is OUT NOW at the same price point (and page size) as the P&S 'Images of War' books... although it is much thicker than any of the entries in that series which I own (256pp, the absolute maximum allowed)
