The amazon sale continues- Helion, Casemate, and other military history publishers are charging only $3 and $4 for otherwise quite expensive books.

Do you have some examples? The ones I had my eyes on (different publishers though) have no discounts, and I'm unable to search by publisher on Amazon (not sure if it's me or no such option exists).

Dropped $12 for well over $125 in book form.

Recommend Dave Glantz's "August Storm"-the best coverage in English (and Russian) of the Red Army invasion of Manchuria.

I picked up Dave's "After Stalingrad"; I was too exhausted after his Stalingrad Trilogy to get it.

I bought:

-Konvev's Golgotha: Operation Typhoon strikes SE Front

-Rikugun/Kangzhan series (Japanese and Chinese order of battle)

- Monty's Functional Doctrine

-Barbarossa Derailed vol. 3

-St. Vith Lion in the Way: 106.ID

-Enduring the Whirlwind: The German Army and the Russo-German war 1941-1943

-Demolishing the Myth (Kursk)


These books were originally priced in the hundreds- I just spend around $40

Is it a regular tablet or an e-reader like a kindle? Tablet screens and backlights are the main reason I don't like reading on them. Too reflective and the LED backlighting hurts the eyes. Never had an issue reading off my Kindle though.

I have an iPad. Bought a few electronic books when I was attending school, saved a few bucks off my VA stipend going that route. And most of these books were not worth keeping in hard copy. Still a pain in the ass to read as if I wanted to.

I'm not completely knocking them, depends on what works best.

True, it was just easier to carry my iPad.
