Hello everybody,

It seems that the book is available for order since I've received my "writer's copies" and according to MMP's webpage the book is available for sale (http://mmpbooks.biz/mmp/books.php?book_id=135) even if it's only available for pre-order at Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Desert-Prelude-Operation-Compass-White/dp/8361421181/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1299338158&sr=8-1).

This book covers "Operation Compass" from December 1940 until the fall of Beda Fomm on 7 February 1941 and thus concludes mine and Ludovico Slongo's "Desert Prelude".

Best wishes/Håkan

The first volume was a real gem to read, I can't wait for the second one! Excellent job so far!

Ottimo! I have had the first book for some time and ordered this one at the same time. So perhaps I will finally be receiving it soon! I enjoyed the first volume very much and look forward to reading the second volume in an excellent and very interesting account of the early desert air war.
Dave.

I now have this book and have just started reading it. It seems just as interesting as the first volume. The photographs are very good and the illustrations are excellent. The illustration of the CR42 of 97a Squadriglia is just what I needed, as I will be making this my next R.A. model.
Cheers, Dave.

I enjoyed reading both of the volumes of Desert Prelude, but are you going to continue the story of the Regia Aeronautica in the desert war? I would certainly be interested in further books.
Cheers, Dave.

I'm also just finishing up last chapter of this book, and have found it very interesting to read. I found it very enjoyable to read and will look for its companion volume.
