August Book Vote and Previous Results!

In Military History, Featured

The start of a new month brings many things to the Osprey site. New books are available to preorder, we offer our customers a new discount and, of course, we put up a new book vote.

One thing we haven’t been doing up until now is announcing the winners of the previous month’s book vote, something I’m sure many of you are all interested in. Today that changes, and to make up for lost time here are the results from February to July.

Want to know what happens next with the book vote winners? Check out these posts looking at previously commissioned books - Part One: 2008-2009 - Part Two: 2010-2011 - Part Three: 2012-2013

February 2015:

In February we ran a Campaign book vote. Here are the results:

CAM – Constantinople 717 – 718 28%

CAM – Fallujah 2004 17%
CAM – Victorio’s War 1879 – 81 14%
CAM – Philippine Sea 1944 13%

Starting off with a tie to make things complicated. Just my luck! CAM - Constantinople 717-718 did edge it by a few votes, but there is clearly a lot of interest in both books.
