Has anyone seen / read / bought this set?
Is it the Australian Tessin?

I am seriously considering buying it.


Opinions?

Possibly a scan of a page or two

Hi Leo,

Looks like the Australian Tessin to me.

Just ordered it on amazon.com, must be a heavy package as p&p is half the cost of the set :(

Couldn't resist. Have also ordered it. 8-)
And yes, the postage/handling charge is exorbitant. :x

My last book order from Australia got lost in the mail, let's hope this one makes it.

Book arrived Saturday, 28.03.2020.

Really outstanding books. Definitely worth getting if you are into the nitty gritty of WW2, this is certainly the set for you.
The price is "ouch", but then so is a complete set of Tessin.

Also includes almost 200 pages of orders of battle. :D

I would have preferred a move structured presentation, such as listing dates in order. But otherwise there is really nothing to complain about. Even provides the sources and references for deeper investigation.

High recommended. :thumbsup:
