Yesterday I received news from my "Black Cross/Red Star" publisher (Eagle Editions) that "Black Cross/Red Star", Vol. 3 "has been printed, should be bound this next week and made ready for shipment to us".

Yesterday I also delivered the manuscript of my book "Barbarossa: The Air War" to the publisher Ian Allan (deadline was today). It will be published by Ian Allan in the spring of 2007. This book can be read as a second, and edited, edition of "Black Cross/Red Star", vol. 1.

One month ago (30 June) was the deadline for the delivery of the manuscript of my book "Luftstrid √¬∂ver Kanalen/Battle of Britain" to the Swedish and international military publisher Leandoer & Ekholm.

Previously, I have delivered the manuscripts of two separate pilot biographies on two JG 54 "Gr√ľnherz" pilots to another publisher, and that publisher now tells me that those two books are intended to be published before Christmas 2006. (I have contracts for both books.)

Right now, I am working on the book "Stalingrad: The Air War", which will be published by Ian Allan in the autumn of 2007.

Info from my website http://www.bergstrombooks.elknet.pl/ :


* Luftstrid √¬∂ver Kanalen: A re-edited new edition of Christer Bergstr√¬∂m's book on the Battle of Britain, "Luftstrid √¬∂ver Kanalen". This book is based on an extensive research into British and German archives, and interviews with a large number of pilot veterans from the Battle of Britain. It will contain a complete list of each individual aircraft loss and each individual victory claim on both sides throughout the Battle of Britain. This is a 200,000-word book (i.e. twice that of Black Cross/Red Star) and contains nearly 400 photographs, many of which are from pilot veterans' personal albums and have never been published before. Will be published in September 2006.

* Battle of Britain: The English edition of the above book. Scheduled to be published in December 2006.

The British publisher Ian Allan will publish four books by Christer Bergstr√¬∂m on the history on the air war on the Eastern Front:

* Barbarossa: The Air War: To be published in the spring of 2007. (Update 31 July 2006: I just delivered the manuscript to the publisher - my deadline for delivery was 1 August 2006.)

* Stalingrad: The Air War: To be published in the autumn of 2007.

* Kursk: The Air War: To be published in the spring of 2008.

* Storm over the Eastern Front: The Air War 1944 - 1945: To be published in the autumn of 2008.

These books will study the air war on the Eastern Front from a slightly different angle than Black Cross/Red Star. The "Ian Allan books" will be more oriented toward planning and strategy, while the Black Cross/Red Star books are more of operational histories.
