A bit of a pot luck competition this time as I have a series of books very kindly donated by Pen & Sword and Haynes Publishing. The winners will receive one of the books listed below but on a purely pot luck basis of first drawn get #1 second #2 etc

The books are
From Pen & Sword
Luftwaffe - a History
Legacy of the Lancaster
(2 copies available)
The Dam Buster Raid - 70 years on - a reappraisal

from Haynes Publishing
B-24 Liberator Owners Workshop Manual

All that is required is that you complete the entry form on Survey Monkey correctly and have your name drawn out of the winners' list.

The competition will close on Sunday 6th October around midday.

The books have all been reviewed recently so look them up in the ARRSE Book Reviews Section.
