I'm very much looking forward to Campaign 320 that is now showing for April this year. It is a less well-known action and if Mr Zaloga does as good a job as he did on his Cherbourg book it will be a welcome addition to the series.

 But while Mr Zaloga works his way steadily through the various US Corps level battles in NW Europe, where are the British and Empire equivalents? An obvious choice to go alongside the new book would be the battles fought by Canadian troops to liberate the Channel ports. So with the 75th. anniversary coming in 2019 please give us a Campaign title on the actions at Le Havre, Boulogne and Calais.

  Oh, and an "Elite" title on the organisation, equipment and deployment of 79th. Armoured Division 1944-45 would be good too.

A good looking cover anyway.

I agree painty it would make a good companion piece. I had assumed Ken Ford would probably cover it, as he seems to be specialising in British and Commonwealth NW Europe titles as Mr Zaloga does the American.i find both these authors books good additions to my library on this aspect of world war 2.
