According to distributors COMAG: Launched in 2009 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Second World War, Osprey’s Battles of World War II is returning to mark the end of the conflict.
Chronicling the war, year-by-year and battle-by-battle, Osprey’s Battles of World War II, produced by Osprey Publishing (which is world-renowned for its military history books) and RBA Coleccionables, provides a fitting history of the most significant event of the 20th Century.
The original collection had a fortnightly frequency and each issue featured a 96-page hardback book detailing the key military campaigns and biggest battles from the Second World War.
Taking in all of the theatres of the conflict, Osprey’s Battles of World War II covers campaigns fought on sea, air and land from around the world during the six years of fighting.
On sale just after the 70th anniversary of VE Day (8 May), the relaunched Osprey’s Battles of World War II will be six monthly issues featuring two of the 96-page books from the original collection, which analyse the origins and outcomes of the battles featured, priced £4.99.
In words and photographs, combined with conventional maps, campaign diagrams and unique 3D battle scenes, the books in Osprey’s Battles of World War II bring the historic events to life in vivid detail, providing an unparalleled understanding of the drama as it unfolded.
The relaunched Osprey’s Battles of World War II is not being offered to subscribers as stocks are limited, so this will be the last chance for readers to get behind this collection.
