Arrived at Last!!


Hi All.

Well it has finally arrived - a few days late, but considering all the postage troubles at the moment, not too bad. Firstly a quick apology: I have sent out all the inland copies but the chap behind the counter at the Post Office clearly didn't have English as his first language because despite asking for 1st Class postage "for everything" after the first 7 had been processed he said - "you did say 2nd Class didn't you?" Being English I said no, I wanted 1st Class, but not to worry (that wasn't what I was really thinking!). So a few of you will be getting your copies a day or two late - sorry about that!

Here are a few photos that you might enjoy, whilst waiting for it to arrive - these are my pre-production shots, but you get the general idea.

If you would like to order a copy for immediate despatch PAYPAL is probably the best way to go. The book costs £23.50 within the UK including 1st Class postage (!!) £27.00 in Europe and £29.00 for the rest of the world.

You can contact me at steveshann@blueyonder.co.uk if you have any questions.

The book has come out rather well with some lovely photos and maps. I hope you will enjoy it. 

Thanks very much once again for your support - if you like it, please tell your friends, as getting the word out there is the biggest problem for one man bands such as I

Last but not least, I hope you all have a pleasant Christmas and New Year and a great wargaming 2023.

Let's Fight Leipzig! An Update

Hi All

Finished at last and here is the front cover:

I am really pleased with the way it has turned out. There are a dozen scenarios from the great battle, each with some background information, specially commissioned maps and orders of battle as well as special rules where appropriate for each scenario.

There is also a little historical background to put the battle into context, but unlike in my Seelow Heights book, where much of the information I included was less widely known, Leipzig is a very well documented battle, so I have kept it to a minimum.

Here is the map from the Lindenau scenario. All are full page and, (I think), have come out particularly well.

Due to the Christmas rush, the printers think that delivery should be around the 15th of December - a bit tight for Santa! So I am taking advance orders now if you would like to get a copy in time for the festivities. Apparently last posting date for 1st Class mail is the 21st. This will allow me to pre-write the envelopes and get them out the day after they arrive from the printers.

Please email me at steveshann@blueyonder.co.uk to reserve a copy and please be sure to include your FULL address and postcode.

The book costs £19.50 + £4.00 postage and packing in the UK (£23.50 in total). To Europe the total is £27.00 and £29.00 to the rest of the world.

Payment via PAYPAL to my email address: steveshann@blueyonder.co.uk

Those of you in North America should be able to obtain a copy from "On Military Matters" in due course. I am also pleased to report that Elite Miniatures Australia have agreed to carry it for me Down Under. Please contact them if you would like to reserve/order a copy.

I hope you like it!

As a one man band it is rather difficult to get the word out about what I am doing, so if you know anyone who might be interested or, if having bought it, you feel able to give it a review or mention on any blogs, forums or Facebook pages you visit, I would really apprecate it.

Many thanks.
