Hello

I am looking at buying this two volume set directly from the publisher (at $125US). The cost of postage is $75US. Ouch. The publisher has suggested that the postage cost would come down (per set) if I bought more than one set. Is anyone else interested in buying this publication?

Sorry, I am too technologically illiterate to post a link, but you can just Google Great Northern War Compendium if you want to find out more.

Regards

Thank you for your response and for posting the link. I bow down before your technological prowess.

I'll give it a day or two to see if anyone else pops up as interested before I ask the publisher to provide a bulk mailing cost.

Yeah, sign me up! I was just about to order from Caliver 110 GBP + postage when I fortunately saw Andrew's note here. So happy to combine an order from the publisher.

Its looks a wonderful book on this period. My main source until now was R.Frost The Northern Wars.

Thanks Frosty.

$125US is a lot cheaper than 110 pounds.

Hello
I have been given a price of $97.95US to ship three copies by OMM in the US. That's less than half the cost of getting shipping by ourselves. So the total cost would be $125US plus one third of the shipping cost.

Please confirm that you want to be in.

Cawdorthane, I'm not sure who you are, so can you please advise.

Regards

Thanks Mark

The OMM weekly flyer also refers to a new SYW history which I might get, although the fact that it is by Digby Smith is a bit of a concern.

No worries. Glad you like them. If you think that that was hard work, clearly you haven't dug ditches on a 38 degree day.
