Morning all,


I spotted a new CAM title appearing on Amazon (Can) this monring - Syrian & Lebanon 1941: The Allies Fight Agianst Vichy France. 

This is a great title to add to the series and one I've been wanting for a while. Definitaley a big gap in the WWII coverge filled there.

It's out Feb next year.


Cheers,


Adam

Thanks for drawing our attention to this Adam.  I agree, this title is long awaited and will fill a huge gap in WWII titles.  I've been asking regularly for this title in "Books I'd Like to Read" for over 5 years now so it's great to see something finally on the horizon.  I don't know anything about the author David Sutton though.

2022 A good year for Vikings & Tories. Thank you Osprey, Can not wait to preorder Siege of Paris & Viking Warrior vs Frankish warrior. I remember voting for Siege of Paris as a future volume in the Raid series.

Oh yes, there are some really great choices in that list. All the Weapon and Raid titles are immediate buys for me. And, hooray! A new Forteress book that I really like the look of too. (Now can we have a matching book on the Fortifications of Sevastopol, please.)

Two more late arrivals.


Tiger vs Churchill DUE

East China Sea 1945 CAM?  ACM?


There's also a few Combat Aircraft as well as miscellaneous GNM, and what look to be expanded Essential Histories?

Here's hoping that Stingers vs Hinds or some other kind of Helicopter Duel will be in the following months

@Tarawa90 Since East China Sea will be written by Brian Lane Herder I'm going to assume it will be a Campaign title.  


The Dutch Resistance Elite title sounds intriquing, as well as Soldiers of Fortune: Mercenaries and Military Adventurers 1960-2020. Soviet State Security Services and Yugoslav Armies 1941-45 are also on my wish list. Along with the delayed US Soldier vs Chinese Soldier and the Armies of the Iran-Iraq War titles, Spring 2022 is going to be a delightful feast of Osprey titles.

The volume on Soviet State Security Forces' is going to cover the period 1917 to 1946, which is very good news.

There is also a Campaign title for Corrigedor, hopefully covering both the Japanese capture and the American recapture.

Still got my fingers crossed that the previously mentioned Duel on B25 vs Japanese Destroyers will resurface at some stage.

I had somewhat assumed that to be the case, a follow up to his Naval Seige of Japan book which came out last year (I recently picked it up, haven't read it yet but it looks good).  Some of my other thoughts:

Gettysburg.  Please let the illustrator be Dennis or Noon.

NVG is really scraping the bottom of the barrel here on tanks, but their naval titles are still looking good.

Good to see Fortress still hanging in there, although there are a lot of different suggestions I could still come up with.

The Viking stuff is solid.

The NKVD book should be interesting.

The Seminole War book is probably both the biggest surprise and for me at least the biggest want.  I'm starting work on a book set during the Seminole War soon so I'll have to wait, easy to come by sources are sparse on the subject.

The USN Submarine vs Japanese Anti-Submarine Escort looks great, as does Soviet Machine Guns of WWII.

The Combat series, I might get the Viking Warrior vs Frankish Warrior. But can we please get some more WWI and Vietnam titles in that series, or at least another WWII title that isn't US-centric? The Hungarian Soldier vs Soviet Soldier announcement was a welcome surprise last year. And I thought we're supposed to get a Polish-Lithuatian Warrior vs Teutonic Knight book, since it won the vote last year. 

@Paintybeard, second you on the B-25 vs Japanese Destroyer title

@Atkinson, second you on Stinger vs Hind or another helicopter Duel title.

@GI Gene and @Tarawa90  Can confirm that “East China Sea 1945” title by Brian Lane Herder will be a Campaign title.  AmazonUK listed briefly the Osprey forthcoming titles list for the first four months of 2022 and it included the series each title fell in.  Unfortunately this list didn’t stay up for long and is now no longer accessible.  I’m afraid I only took note of those titles that I was interested in.

Interesting that Gettysburg seems to be getting what I assume will be a 3-volume treatment. I'm still crying out for the work Simon Millar started on the Seven Years War to be continued. Or indeed the few Napoleonic campaigns that haven't been touched yet, namely 1807 and 1814.

Man I’m still hoping for more eastern front titles. The third Stalingrad book is probably gonna come out that year but I also wanna see some post-1943 titles. Also a Red Cliffs title.

I second the call for more Eastern Front titles. Post-1943 has a lot of uncovered content where that's concerned.

The problem I see is Dr. Forczyk (the guy who writes the German Soviet war books) only writes about 1942-1943. He does not plan to anything after 1943 because he says "I'm not likely to do much after June 1944. German records in NARA are missing big chunks from the last year of the war, which complicates research" (in an older post of his). I think he should be focusing more on the Rzhev battles of 1942 because the battles are often forgotten. 

I feel like 1944 is an important year but for the time being, there is not anybody to write about this critical year. I believe if Dr. F does a great job covering all the major offensives/battles in 1942-1943, then I am satisfied.
