Sadly the list for 2015 is already done, but I do echo this call. The original version is one of Ospreys poorest efforts and badly needs a major overhaul.

The author of the original book lives in New Orleans, plays Ned Pakenham at the annual commemoration of the battle and, for the 200th anniversary, has helped found an organization that has built a replica of the battlefield so that an actual reenactment can be held; Chalmette National Battlefield is a national park and battle reenactments can't be held there. He also brooks little discussion or contradiction where the battle of New Orleans is concerned. I don't know what contractual obligations exist between him and Osprey but this could be the reason.

Next week? Rather a tight deadline, wouldn't you say?

Mr Pickles is a Yorkshireman, when did they brook contradiction about anything? (And yes, this a Scot talking...) It's not his facts I have a problem with, it is the vituperative anti-Americanism that pervades the whole book that I find distasteful. We all know that a lot of nonsense has been talked in America about the Battle of New Orleans. Swinging the pendulum to the other extreme and filling a book with rude remarks doesn't make for a balanced view.
