Man, that sure is a lot of wwii campaigns. Interesting to see what that brings. 

 

Also, Malta is 90% most likely just a normal campaign. It did not show up on an air campaign search.

Several good titles here. Especially pleased to see some WW1 books that aren't about Americans in the last 5 minutes of the fighting.

Now we just need a CAM on Caporetto.

You know they like to front load WWII titles in the first half of the year and save the cool stuff for the last four months.  Malta just has me puzzled because the siege was an Air Campaign, unless they're going to talk about all the different naval actions in the Med.

Like you Tarawa90, my initial thought was that the Malta title would be an Air Campaign.  However, there has already been an Air Campaign book on Malta (ACM 4: “Malta 1940-42: The Axis’ Air Battle for Mediterranean Supremacy” by Ryan K Noppen (22 February 2018)).  The 2018 book focused on the Italian and German air campaigns and why they failed.

It seems to me that if the 2022 Malta book is to be an Air Campaign then it would have to focus on the Allied air defence of Malta.  Author Anthony Rogers would be well qualified to write about this seeing he grew up in Malta, has researched much of Malta’s wartime history and has written several books about it, particularly the air defence aspect.

If the 2022 Malta book is to be a CAM book embracing the whole battle for Malta (air and sea) then it would be a mammoth undertaking to incorporate in just the one book, especially when one considers the convoy battles, aircraft resupply, the submarine contribution, surface warship battles, the air battles themselves, and the contribution of the people of Malta.  Frankly, I don’t see how a single CAM book can cover adequately the whole battle for Malta.  So, I hope it is an ACM.

Some interesting choices. I'm glad we're seeing another late war Eastern Front campaign book.

Some great WWI choices; will probably grab all of them. It's about time we got another WWI Combat book; I'm hoping more are on the way for 2023. I agree with Paintybeard in that we could use some more WWI campaign titles that aren't Western Front. (I thought a Tannenberg one won the vote last year or the year before?)

Glad we're FINALLY getting some medieval period books from an Asian perspective; and judging by the title more are on the way!

If they are bringing back the Warrior series with that Gladiator gbook, that's a good sign, since there's still a lot of potential for that series.

Presumably we'll be getting the 'Big reveal' starting next month. In the meantime, definitely grabbing 'Barents Sea' and 'Budapest'. Good to see Angus Konstam continuing his titles on naval engagements, as well as an 1944 Eastern Front title since that year is probably the least well known in this theatre. And yes, great to see WW1 titles covering more obscure theatre of the conflict.

Some really good titles here. Especially keen on the sudden increase in ww1. Although still plenty to go though!
