Posted by: KAL9000 I hope that Osprey might re-release CAM 074: The Rhineland as a two-part campaign title, as The Rhineland (1): Operations Veritable and Blockbuster and The Rhineland (2): Operation Grenade. I've said this before and I'll say it again: I'm also hoping for a multi-part Bagration title.

As we all know, Leyte Gulf and Stalingrad are getting multi-part releases this year, which I think is a good thing. Like everyone else I still want Campaign titles covering events that haven't been covered before, but I'm hoping that Osprey continues this trend. I'm particularly fascinated by The Rhineland campaign, which takes place between the German winter counteroffensives and the Allied crossing of the Rhine River, since these were some of the last pitched battles in the West.


Since we already have titles covering Nierstein and Remagen, I hope Osprey is willing to update their old (released in 2000) Rhineland title as a two-parter, and hopefully their Bagration title as well. The Rhineland title would be split into a title for the British operations, and another for the American operation.

 


In case you guys missed it, I suggested that Bagration be broken down into a three-parter:

Operation Bagration (1): From Vitebsk and Orsha to the Baltics


Operation Bagration (2): From Mogilev and Bobruisk to Warsaw


Operation Bagration (3): The Lvov-Sandomierz offensive

 


What do you all think? What are some suggestions for old titles that might benefit from a multi-part update?

El-Alamein? First title for the first defensive engagement when Auchinleck was still in charge, and the second title obviously for the offensive engagement under Monty? Sticking with the eastern front though, 1944 as a whole is still barely touched yet, so there should still be plenty of ground to cover there.

I am for more re-dos especially anything dealing with the German Soviet war.  I agree with the Bagration one, especially because it is very important campaign in 1944. The problem is that Dr. Forczyk does not write about 1944 and only about 1942-1943 era. 

 


More redos are welcome because they help add more information/ better maps/ more photos. I feel like a new operation compass and a more detailed battle of the bulge would be well too. 


The biggest problem in my opinion is to find the authors who will write/add on these excellent topics, which is a big bottleneck in preventing more books published.

Full heartedly agree on more Two-Part and Three-Part campaign releases.

In terms of additional Eastern Front releases, I'd want to see something like Jassy-Kishinev or Debrecen, the former would be an excellent candidate for a two parter. Osprey hasn't covered the Soviet advance into the minor Axis nations at all.

Agree on Bagration. It's way outdated at this point.  My suggestion would be Siegfried line, should have broken it up between Aachen and the Hurtgen Forest.

I also agree on the Bagration suggestion and also the Jassy-Kishinev campaign. Campaigns from the Axis allies are not well covered. I'm waiting to see what the new Stalingrad brings.

I think a Lake Balaton 1945 title would be interesting, if only to compare the performance of the late war Soviet Army with their performance in the 1942-43 era that most Osprey titles cover.

Some great suggestions there guys. I'd be interested in all of them.
