Praise for new layout


EXCELLENT work on making the site easier to navigate. The indexes, especially as they grow, will be a major asset to the historical community. Like many others, though I enjoyed reading the Acrobat versions of your books (a real luxury and gratis too) I very much anticipate the hardcopy editions of the millennium edition of Hitler's War" and, vol. ii of Churchill's War, "Triumph and decline".

Good luck with the sales, they are deserving of success, and let us hope all scholars will appreciate the monographs for the multitude of additional information they give us on the war, and the many factors on both sides that influenced the eventual outcome. Its a great shame the study of Dr Goebbels, "Mastermind of the Third Reich" does not reach a greater audience as it depicts the agent of anti-Semitism in NS Germany in a very bad picture and your dislike of what Dr Goebbels stood for clearly reflects your distain for anti-Semitism. Those who think differently ought read that book.

THANKS for the pat on the back. As for Goebbels. Mastermind of the Third Reich, you will be pleased to hear that it is still enjoying a steady scale of about three copies a day around the clock even now five years after publication, and we are about to reprint -- no easy task for an author to do all this single handed, but worth the effort.
