Sherman tank fans, I haven’t forgotten you

Work is proceeding (and no, not at a snail’s pace either) on the “Sherman Family Photo Album” series.  I don’t have a definite release date yet, but there is a certain international armor modeling and preservation society convention in April 2014 that has been targeted as a possibility.  That is all I will say about […]

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. I hope to change that with this new photo-study that looks like it will be about 300 pages in length and contain more than 600 images. The […]

Armor Plate Press reprints the Recognition Handbook of German Armored & Tracked Vehicles

A few months back a dear friend presented me with a copy of the rare Recognition Handbook of German Armored & Tracked Vehicles produced by US Army Intelligence during April-May 1945. I was amazed by the incredible level of detailed information contained in this field guide, developed to help US Army officers correctly identify captured […]

Blitzkrieg Armor Breakthrough!

Way back in 2008 the first two volumes of Blitzkrieg Armor appeared out of the mist. Now, almost five years later, the Blitzkrieg is back and this time in even greater force. Volumes three through six have their layouts complete, the photos collected, and the captions written. The last step is to put ink on […]

Blitzkrieg Armor on the move

The long-awaited volumes three and four of the Blitzkrieg Armor series are being worked on at present and will be available in early 2013. The photos are all collected (and there are some really nice images in there) and now, well, all I have to do is write the captions. Easier said than done but […]

Blitzkrieg Armor Volume III The Western Front

This book, along with Volume IV (Eastern Front) is going into the final stages of production. Sneak preview: this volume contains Belgian AFVs and anti-tank guns. Honestly, it really does. I can’t remember ever seeing so many photos of Belgian AFVs as I have in this book. Sneak preview II:  I am a big fan […]

Tank War: World War One

Ever since I did “German AFVs of World War One” a couple of years ago, I’ve been fascinated with the clanking metal monsters of the Great War. It is just in development now, but I am working on a new title that features a ton of great photos I have found of World War One […]

The Beute Panzers are here.

I produced two volumes of the Beute Panzers books. These are formatted much like the popular APG 1946 title, in the WWII Ordnance Illustrated Special Issue style. One volume contains the French & Belgian vehicles (and adaptations of the chassis) in German service, and the other contains American, British, Italian, Polish and Soviet vehicles. Lots […]

Attack of the Beute Panzers

We are putting the finishing touches on the Beute Panzers photo study. We’ve decided to format this similarly to the popular APG 1946 title we produced last year, so Beute Panzers will be two volumes (French & Belgian vehicles in one, and American, British, Italian, Polish and Soviet vehicles in the other). Price per volume […]
