This year has been extremely busy as I not only work full time and have a family but have also been selected to attend Command and Staff College this year. However this has not stopped me spending some time progressing the book. I am still aiming for a September 2016 publication and hopefully my other aspects of my life do not get in the way of this goal.

I was fortunate enough to receive some more information and photos from different people from around the world. I was most pleased to collaborate with Michael Jung who wrote the book German Combat Divers in WWII and he has agreed to share some of his collection with me. I have also been able to acquire some copies of some German period newspapers that really give you a sense of the propaganda machine working overtime in late 1944 and early 1945.

I am still stuck for a title of the book but not too concerned yet. If you have any ideas then please add them to my Facebook page ( I will aim to have the front cover completed in the next couple of months and hopefully share that shortly after.
