  • Moon Sound and Albion 1917



Combat:

  • Mongol Warrior vs European Knight - Mongol Invasions of Europe
  • Jacobite Highlander vs. British Redcoat - Forty-five Rebellion
  • British Foot vs. French Line Infantry - Peninsular War and Waterloo

  • French Poilu vs. German Infantryman - Verdun 1916

These are all worthy titles, Duke. If you follow the forum and blogs on here at all i'm sure you will have noticed recent requests for more World War 1 books, so plenty of your titles are in need of coverage. I particularly like your suggestion of a book on the Nivelle offensive of 1917. I would also buy the Naval titles, but I think they may be a little obscure to make commercial sense.

Battlefield 1 did have maps based on Albion and Heligoland so I'd like to think they bought at least some awareness to those battles.

I'm glad you think they're good. It would be really cool if they pursued some of the Command suggestsions, haven't had many of those in a while.

Duke, I for one have been after more ww1 titles and you've picked some good ones there, especially the raid title. Personally I'd like a campaign on second ypres and passchendaele. I'm also a massive fan of the combat books and you've listed some very interesting titles. I'd  buy them all if published. Command appears to have gone to the great commissioning editors waiting room in the sky. Which is unfortunate as some  of the published titles were very good. Hopefully, like raid, it may return in the future.  I liked several of your suggestions, especially the ww1 titles.
