    Osprey to reprint almost all of its out of print books

    Hi all:
    Got the Feburary newsletter. There's annoucement that almost all of the out of print books will be republished. Great and I just bought 2 from a used bookseller

    Thats good news, but I believe some titles need revision than reprinted. Many titles are twenty years out of date which include ones about Flak Jackets, the US Army, British Army, US Marines, Israeli Army, and the Russians.
    But history, which is never tidy, must always end with questions. Conclusions are much too convenient.

    Gene:
    No kidding. Let me add to your list
    NATO armies which also has to add a 2nd volume due to the incorporation of most of the Eastern European militaries,
    the Arab armies need a third volume
    British and American paratroops
    The Soviet army booklet needs to be changed to Russian army since 91 with 2 volumes to deal with the Commonwealth of independent states, Ukriane, the Baltics, Armenia, Georgia, Abzerjian, the -Stans
    Force Recon
    Royal Marines needs a humungous update (since 82)
    Military sniper needs a second volume
    Flak jacket needs 2 more volumes to cover the bewildering proliferation of ballistic protection since the 80s)
    US Army infantry equipment needs to be updated
    Australian Army at War (gotta cover East Timor and of course the latest conflicts)

    I think that covers it. Of course I won't mention the M1 and M2 booklets by Osprey
