free Books

One of the greatest joys I’ve experienced is my marriage to Denise.  This week marks our anniversary, and in honor of this, we are having a “sale-bration” (forgive the pun).

Seriously, I can think of few reasons as good as this for us to launch our biggest sale ever – FREE BOOKS!

From now until Monday October 15, for each Legends of WarfareVisual HistoryMilitary MachineCanforaConcordOsprey books or Squadron book you order from our site at our regular low discount prices, you can choose an equal number of books from the list below, and get them absolutely for FREE!

Of course, you know there will be fine print – so here it is: 

Of course, you know there will be fine print – so here it is:  This offer does not apply to pre-orders - which means our new Chevrolet G506 book is not a part of this offer.

The sale also excludes periodicals (MMiR and Allied-Axis) - the supply of many of these are almost exhausted.  Despite these exclusions, there are still a LOT books in this offer. By the way, folks that subscribe to our newsletter got advance word of this sale - so be sure and subscribe!

So, this is how this will work: each free book is to be equal or lesser value than purchased book (you can’t buy a $15 book and expect to get a $30 book for free); we reserve to limit the quantities (while we are happy to have everyone’s business, its not fair to our other customers to have one person, for example, order 100 copies of M911/M1070 HET in Action and choose to get 100 F-14 Tomcat in Action for free, and thus other folks are left empty handed). In a similar manner, quantities are limited to stock on hand.  That is, when we run out of books to give away, we run out - there will be no back orders.  The system keeps up with this, so you will know as you order whether or not a given book is available.

The final hurdle has to do with the logistics of making the website accommodate this program.  Despite my best efforts, unfortunately, I can’t seem to automate this process through the site.  Thus – when you check out, unfortunately you’ll pay for the entire order.  I will refund the portion of your payment for the books that should be free within 24 hours (usually within minutes).  If, after deducting the free books, your total is over $50, and we are shipping to a US address, we pay the shipping.  If the actual final total of the books ordered is less than $50, then standard shipping charges apply.   

I understand that the refund situation is an inconvenience, and requires some trust on your part. If you are uncomfortable with this - then simply place the order for those books that you will be paying for, and send me a message through our “contact us” link listing the books that you want from the free list below. The hazard of this is that while the website is real-time, I do have to sleep - and have a book deadline this week - so supplies of one of your choices MAY become exhausted before your message gets to me. This is unlikely, but it is possible, so I felt we should mention this.
