This site is now so large (15,000 + files), that only major changes and or additions are noted on this page.
But, the pages of this site are still constantly being tweaked and twitched, often on a daily basis.
Check the date at the top of the page for status of the information content.
Changes in format, layout, or administration are seldom reported.
Administrative comments are in yellow.
Website information is in white.
Book updates are in green.
Other colors are used as the whim strikes me.
My German WWII Organizational Series is now available for downloading.
After the troubles I have had with the latest publishers, I have dropped the idea of doing any further books.
The Royal Hungarian Army 1920 – 1945
Initially thought to be the first of several volumes, I have since dropped the idea of publishing any further books. Instead, the book is being converted to HTML. First chapters have been uploaded. The (new) web pages include additions, changes, amendments, etc. which have become available over the past 20 years.
And, I will possibly be amending even these (new) web pages from time to time as well — A work in progress. The advantage of the internet.
As always, check the dates at the top.
For those who don't want to wait for me to complete this web site opus, I have also uploaded the original version of my manuscript as used by Europa Books (formerly Axis Europa) to publish the book in 1998 (with a few minor corrections) to keep you entertained:
The Royal Hungarian Army 1920 – 1945 [3.7 MB PDF File]
