Raid - The launch titles!

In Military History
For those of you have been waiting with bated breath and also for those of you who sent in such great suggestions I can now confirm the first six Raid titles.

They are the following:

RAID 1 Rangers lead the way - Pointe-du-Hoc D-Day 1944

RAID 2 Israel\'s lightning strike - Entebbe 1976

RAID 3 The Cabanatuan Prison raid - The Philippines 1945

RAID 4 Who Dares Wins -The SAS and the Iranian Embassy Siege 1980

RAID 5 The Great Locomotive Chase - The Andrew\'s Raid 1862

RAID 6 The Samurai capture a king - Okinawa 1609

The first two titles will launch in September 2009 followed by two in October and two more in November. We also have a number of exciting titles lined up for 2010 including rescuing Mussolini from Gran Sasso and the Dambusters Raid.

I suggest an air raid:
the Osirak nuclear plant in iraq (1981) by Israeli Air Force.

We have a number of Raid titles to work on at the moment, but it is great to hear more ideas for future books – thank you for all your comments. For those of you that want to see some navy titles, we will be publishing books on Zeebrugge and also The Cockleshell Raid in 2010. Gangster, we will also be publishing a book on the Los Banos raid next year.

Another suggestion : Alexandria 1941 ( the Decima Mas vs the Mediterranean Fleet)

The navy seems to be missing. How about Gunther Prien's U-47 attack on Scapa Flow, the Japanese torpedo boat attack on Port Arthur on Feb.8-9, 1904 that opened the Russo-Japanese War, the attack by the Swordfish from HMS Illustrious on the Italian fleet in Taranto, or Decatur's raid to re-capture the U.S.S. Phiadelphia in Feb. 1804? What about some raids that miscarried for the attackers like the "Blackhawk Down" incident in Mogadishu, the Schweinfurt raids, or Dieppe?

Dare we hope for a title on Rogers' Rangers at St. Francis and one on (be still, my heart) Sened Pass?

I’m pretty excited by this series. Will the raid series have colour plates like a Men-At-Arms series or more like a Campaign series colour plates and how many pages will the book be overall?

Lindisfarne.... the Raid that started it all.
