Hello Mike,

That looks like an interesting book,  I do have one question, are most of the pictures in it unpublished. Really liked the ones that I hadnít seen before in your Battle group Leopard book.

Regards
Justin.

Hi Justin,

Yes, the vast majority of the images you will not have seen before.There are some that have popped up on the internet, and a few that have been seen in articles, but the majority of the circa 1,000 images have not been published previously. Of course, there is also the 87,000 words of information as well, not just images. :)  **Edit: I should also say that a few - not many - of the BGL images, which were first published in 1996, are in this book as well, as they illustrated a certain point I wanted to make ***

If you want to check out some sample pages, they can be seen on the publisher's FB page:

I'm told that Ronnel's Hobbies in Australia have placed an order, so anyone interested may wish to contact that store.

Hi Mike,

Great to hear about your up coming book, especially given the world been turned on its head. A good book on Military Land Rovers will be just the tonic to I need to see me thru.

Good luck with the sale numbers.

Regards,

Mick
