Default Feldzug 1918 - Michael Baldwin

The last in this series is out in Jan 18 - the author died recently (having just about finished the 1918 vol.) and his collection is up for auction:

I bought the others a few years ago and have been waiting for this volume to be released.

WOW, he had an impressive collection. I don't own the books because I sold all my Imperial headgear in early 2000's. I assume though that they are excellent references? There is no better legacy for a collector to leave behind than to share his accumulated knowledge.

A sad loss.

His books were a goldmine of information (both in the text and high resolution images).

I hope that this final volume will be published, as it will be a fitting tribute to this man's work.

From speaking to the book dealer I believe that the manuscript, illustrations etc had all been completed, it just had to be 'put together'. I am sorry I am not an author but that is how I can best describe it. I was also informed by the book dealer that the publishers hoped to get the book out to coincide with the auction. As it is 2018, I would imagine that Feldzug 1918 will be released this year.

Having searched (see below) I wonder if it is already out?

If not it certainly appears to be pending...

In a similar vein I am also waiting for Campaign 1916, 17 and 18 by Chris Pollendine to be written so that I have both sets complete!

Hi Gents

This book is now out -I picked up my copy at the viewing day before the auction on Tuesday- and details feature on the Military Mode website:

http://militarymodepublishing.com/

The auction was superb -some big money was being spent, but the sheer quality of the pieces on offer was amazing. The catalogue is viewable as a flipping-book here:

http://www.candtauctions.co.uk/online-catalogue/

All the best

Paul.

Micky's was probably the finest collection of Imperial German militaria anywhere in the world. He was well-known to be exceptionally discerning and nothing in his collection was wrong. There aren't many big collections you can say that about. Add to that the provenance of the Feldzug series and it's perhaps not surprising that most items doubled their estimate.

Micky was just 60 when he had the heart attack that eventually led to his life support being turned off. A great shock to all of his many friends in the collecting community. He was liked, respected, and is greatly missed.

I think I was sitting directly in front of you, maybe one or two rows ahead....I certainly remember the moment when that tunic was sold.

It's a really exceptional example, congratulations on winning it.

So many quality items in one place, it was indeed a day to remember.

Best Regards

Paul.
