September 2020

GNM   The English Civil War: An Atlas and Concise History of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms 1638-51 (Nick Lipscombe)

I hope I’ve got the series of the titles correct.  I am not 100% sure about the August title “Roman Shields”.  Weapons series seems the only one that makes sense.  Can anyone confirm this or otherwise?

Highlight for me is the long awaited Campaign title “Warsaw 1920”, though I am rather curious about the General Military title of the atlas and history of English Civil War.  Quite different from the preferences of 89P13.  Osprey sure has a hard task catering for all tastes.

Some great sounding books there, thanks for the list. Nice to see a couple of raid titles creeping back in.

This must mean that DUEL 68 (RAF Fighters vs Luftwaffe Bombers: Battle of Britain) finally has been discontinued or it will reach a five year delay in late 2020.

Hobbe62 it’s listed as available for pre-order on Amazon with a publication date of 23 July 2020. Fingers crossed.

Paul W.  I wouldn't read too much into the listing on Amazon of Duel 68 for 23 July 2020.  This listing is for only a Kindle edition, with the Paperback version listed as "Currently Unavailable".  So, I would regard this listing as being extremely tentative to say the least.  Given this title's history, I would want more than this before I put it on the list of prospective 2020 titles.  Having said this, it would be good if Osprey clarified the position regarding this title as it has been deferred now for about five years.
