Alas, the book has only garnered 8% of the votes so far, while The Opium Wars 1830-1860 leads the field with 35% of the votes. With nearly 400 "followers" of this blog and numerous "lurkers" who also follow my writings, I believe that we have the potential to swamp the poll with our votes and get this important book published. As an added bonus, perhaps a successful voting interest in the GNW will prompt Osprey to republish the out of print books covering the Army of Peter the Great.
So here is what I am asking everyone to do: go to the Osprey Publishing web site at:
and place your vote for the Swedish Army in the Great Northern War. You will find the poll by scrolling down the right hand side of the page.
I want to thank you in advance for your help in bringing this important book to the market.
I voted for this book when I saw it in the Osprey page because I´m very interested in the topic.ReplyDelete
But it is a war without British soldiers...
I have duly voted for the GNW title as I waiting expectantly for the Ebor minis figures to appear. Mind you I like the idea of the Opium Wars book as well although I did write a series of articles published in MW in the mid/late 90's covering the First Opium War.ReplyDelete
Ok, I voted for the GNW. It's a beautiful age and a very interesting war.ReplyDelete
The Crimean French and Pacific War are also good titles.
The Opium Wars??? Why???ReplyDelete
I just voted for it.ReplyDelete
Voted. Also cant wait for my Ebor dollies.ReplyDelete
Voted but doesn't look like it will be a winner sadlyReplyDelete
But will the book be any good? Aye, there's the rub. Vote dutifully submitted.ReplyDelete
Done, but there's a lot of ground to make up!ReplyDelete
This lurker has voted as asked :-)ReplyDelete
Have done as requested...ReplyDelete
A pleasure, Jim. Done!ReplyDelete
Count me in! Happy to help!ReplyDelete
I just discovered that you can vote again every day.ReplyDelete
Just go for it!
Hi, I just found this. I recall seeing it before and joined the request, not that it did any good. I did approach Osprey with some of my Swedish experts and artists to do a book. Not even a thanks but not thanks and I even had an Osprey author follow up with them. Decided to do it myself. I still don't understand Osprey.ReplyDelete
