Just about getting my Overlord force finished and collecting up forces for Blitzkrieg, and now I've got to get a British desert force on the go. Thanks chaps - ordered :-)

This will keep me out of trouble for some time...!

Flight Officer David Campbell: So it's tonight. Suits me fine. Tonight. This afternoon. NOW!

Or, at least, as soon as I finish this beer.

No plan to "go desert" anytime soon, but I pre-ordered anyway. I just love the books, and I want to keep the great stuff coming.

Shame about the cost of postage to Oz, as all my terrain is geared towards Europe I'm still wavering but I could always just use the orgs for mid war and not have evacuated from France, bit like the situation back in Henry V day ;)
