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!
