56th Fighter Group book from AJ Press - 56th FG museum, Halesworth



From Nigel Julien's FB page;

  " Many people, on both sides of the Atlantic, have been asking both myself and Peter Randall when our book on the 56th Fighter Group is going to be published. A question that both of us have been asking AJ Press for a long time now as well. From our side of things, the text, photos and captions were completed many months ago. The artwork is done, the colour profiles look superb, and all that is left is to dot a few I's and cross a few T's. If anybody and everybody interested in when this book will finally cease to be a PDF file and find its way into bookstores would care to email the publishers direct at aj-press@home.pl then perhaps it will get publsihed sooner. Neither myself or Peter Randall will profit financially from this book. Our "payment" is in a number of copies which will be sold directly by the 56th Fighter Group Museum at Halesworth and monies raised go directly towards the upkeep of this fabulous museum. The decal sheet features 6 P-47's which will be included as 1:72,1:48th and 1:32 scale decals. 5 of these, to the best of our knowledge, have never been made available before, and 1 is appearing with the correct code letter and serial number for the first time..."
