Japanese Tanks & Anti-tank Weapons of World War II

There have been far too few photo resources available to AFV historians, researchers and modelers that illustrate the Japanese Empire’s use of armored vehicles during World War II.

New books in bunches!

Setting Suns III. Grounded Eagles II. Flakpanzers. APG 1946. Just when you thought they’d never get here–they’ve landed! Its always the way, hurry up and wait.

Setting Suns III

Wow, I’ve received a lot of e-mails asking about this book. Things are progressing well with Volume III and right now I predict that I should be able to offer it for sale in early 2011. The photos are outstanding—including a group of never-before-seen images directly from a group of Japanese negatives that I have acquired.
