    Once again it is timer to lighten my bookshelves and I have at least 5 books to give away as prizes, all of a military history background. These cover likes of the Peninsular War, WW1, WW2, Malayan Conflict so a fine mix of titles. Everything is completely pot luck so if you are lucky to win you will get a book of my choice.

    The competition will run until Sunday 15th November at some point during the day when I get round to closing it off!

    Entry form for this competition can be found here: Survey Monkey

    Couple of the books on offer are:

  14. Wrecks there is no need for that, if it was a 200 page book they would get 200 visits to the bog, plus the covers or for the tight arses 400 visits if they use both sides. :rolleyes:
