An old friend of mine has collected Osprey books from the gitgo, and told me the other day that Half Price Books has a variety of them, all going for $4.98 each. That's the price whether the book's a Men-at-Arms, Warrior, Elite, Campaign, Vanguard, or whatever.

I stopped by one of their stores and found a number of titles salted throughout the Military History and History sections. I nabbed two Warrior titles - US Marine Corps Raider 1942-43 and US Army Ranger 1983-2002, a Men-at-Arms - The German Army in WW I (3) 1917-18, and a Battle Orders - US Army Infantry Divisions 1942-43 (lots of TO&E stuff as well as services background and campaign/battle info w/maps). Saw stuff on WWI Brit arty, Napoleonics, Irish battles, Russian troops of Ivan (Terrible or Great??).

One non-Osprey I thought I'd mention, for those interested in the subject: Robert L. Willett's RUSSIAN SIDESHOW America's Undeclared War 1918-1920. The Allied Intervention in Russia seems to be getting more coverage, and Half Price had a bunch of copies of this one. Looks good, I'll be finding out shortly.

Thanks for the heads up. I went this morning and found a few titles; there weren't too many but you can't beat $4.98 for an Osprey book nowadays.

I also picked up some "GI Series" titles for $2.98.

Yeah, I picked up US Airborne Divisions in the MTO (Battle Orders). The only other ones at my store were Aviation-related, but as PD said, it's worth going through the whole History/Military section.
