Osprey will be working from home from Tuesday 17th March. We plan to continue all our operations, while reducing risk of infection by having staff work from home. Please note that we are doing our best to manage incoming post and parcels. For the time being please refrain from sending items to our offices and please assume that items that you have sent to us, have not arrived with their intended recipient. Our priority remains the wellbeing of staff, authors, customers, freelancers, suppliers and distributors. We would like to thank all for their support whilst we transition to virtual operations.

Sneak Peek at March's Artwork

In Military History, Featured

As we welcome the New Year, it’s time to look at some exclusive artwork that will be featured in some of our March 2017 books.

Our second plate, from Gerry Embleton, shares examples of soldiers from the Coalition War, c. 1625–35. This artwork is one of several from Dutch Armies of the 80 Years' War 1568–1648 (1). From left to right we have a Pikeman, a Musketeer, and an Officer.

Weapon 54: The Suomi Submachine Gun by Leroy Thompson

Illustrated by Adam Hook & Alan Gilliland

Suomi submachine

This final plate from The Suomi Submachine Gun depicts the Ambush on the Raate Road in January 1940. Here, a Finnish ski patrol is armed with the Suomi KP/‑31 SMG, and are descending upon the stopped Soviet column.  Some of the troops have spare drum magazines hung from their belts.

That's our final artwork reveal of 2016, but we have plenty more coming in 2017. Let us know which of these is your favourite, and which you'd like to read in the New Year!

Very much looking forward to the second volume about Kursk, and Mr Turners excellent, de-saturated artwork is a big bonus.
