Thank you both for the information. A few interesting titleas there. But also some rather desperate repeats of frequebtly covered subjects.

Likewise, many thanks for bringing this first instalment of Amazon’s unofficial 2020 reveal to our attention.  I have to agree with Painty.  The list contains some titles with potential and others that you would really have to wonder how on earth they passed stage one of the proposal process, much less get anywhere beyond that.  Still, there’s another two-thirds of the year to go so hopefully we will see an improvement there.

Osprey does, however, seem to have made a reasonable start with its General Military titles for 2020.  I note, in particular, Jeffrey Cox’s follow-up to “Morning Star, Midnight Sun” on the Guadalcanal-Solomons naval campaign with his “Rising Star, Creeping Shadow”.  Hard to argue with this one.

For those interested in the GNM/GNA titles, the list for the first four months of 2020 is:

January

British Battle Tanks: Post-War Tanks

Blade of a Sword: Ernst Jünger and the 73rd Fusilier Regiment on the Western Front, 1914-18

February

Military Women

In Good Faith: A History of the Vietnam War: Volume 1: The Road to War, 1945-65

A Shining Mark: Lt Col Bill Reed, Flying Tiger Ace

March

The English Civil War: An Atlas and Concise History of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms 1638-51

April

Blood, Metal and Dust: The Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq 2001-14, A Military History

Lawrence of Arabia and the War in the Desert 1916-18

Rising Star, Creeping Shadow: The Conclusion of the Guadalcanal-Solomons Naval Campaign of World War II, November 1942-February 1944


I hope I haven’t inadvertently omitted any.

I'm glad for the increased focus on Korea, since that hasn't been given that much coverage in Osprey's line ups. I hope we can see more WW1 books as well and finally see titles covering Passchendael, Meuse-Argonne, maybe even Thessalonika and the Italian theater. Still, my greatest hope is for more American Civil War books.

Personally I think it's a very interesting list and good to see Korea and ww1 represented, as well as a wide range of other conflicts.
