Sneak Peek at June's Artwork

In Military History, Featured

As we near the end of March, it’s time to showcase some of the new pieces of artwork that will be included in our upcoming June titles.

Campaign 308: St Lô 1944 by Steven J. Zaloga
ILLUSTRATED BY Johnny Shumate

St Lo image

This plate from St Lô 1944, depicts the various weapons that were used by the First US Army during their attempt to secure St Lô in France. One of the most common weapons used can be seen in the foreground as a soldier holds a rifle grenade. Other weapons seen here are the M1A1 2.36in. “bazooka” rifle launcher, and the 60mm M2 light mortar.

Combat 25: Canadian Corps Soldier vs Royal Bavarian Soldier By Stephen Bull
ILLUSTRATED BY Adam Hook

Attack on Bellevue

This plate from Canadian Corps Soldier vs Royal Bavarian Soldier depicts the attack on Bellevue. Two Bavarian soldiers, armed with grenade bags, have worked their way through shell holes under covering fire.

Campaign 309: Shanghai and Nanjing 1937 by Benjamin Lai
ILLUSTRATED BY Giuseppe Rava

Occupation of Nanjing

This image from Shanghai and Nanjing 1937 depicts a scene from John Rabe’s diary. Rabe, a member of the Nazi Party, stayed behind during the Nanjing Occupation to help prevent the atrocities of the Japanese army: ‘6:00 PM. Six Japanese climbed over my garden wall and attempted to open the gates from the inside. When I arrived and shone my flashlight in the face of one of the bandits, he reached for his pistol but dropped it quickly enough when I yelled at him and held my swastika armband under his nose.’

That’s all the artwork for now, but if you want to see more from these titles, they are now available to pre-order by clicking here. Let us know in the comments which is your favourite piece of artwork, and which title you’ll be ordering this June!

All great titles and artwork. Trench scene looks gritty and the concept of a Nazi stopping genocide is certainly an interesting story.

Looking forward to all three of these. Can't wait. The John Rabe story is very interesting.

Yes, all three of this are on my wish-list and Adam Hooks pictures look like they will be admirable.

Hooray for New Artwork Day!
All of these are nicely done. I like the polish and composition of Johnny Shumate's illustration. Adam Hook really brings out the mud and grit of the Western Front. Giuseppe Rava nails the irony of people receiving humanitarian aid under the literal protection of the swastika.
Well done, gents! I'm looking forward to all of these titles.
