I just would like all of you to be aware of this;

Over the past two or three weeks, I've been closely working with my publisher on editing drafts of my MAS boat book. The draft which he sent to me late yesterday was also sent to an author who helped me greatly on the text and is one who I've grown to respect very much, and he said that it was an attractive work.

Additionally, Rear Admiral Maurizio Erteo assisted with the drafts as well as my writing and researching the text and getting me whatever data and photos for the book.

Whereas I cannot say it is the definitive work on the subject; that title can easily go to the books by CDR Erminio Bagnasco hands down and I will not put myself into his strata, I can say that you will be impressed by the work I've done.

All ...

I have just been informed via email from my publisher that, my MAS book is currently at the printers and 'we' should have a Proof by next week.

It is on track for its April 1, 2011 release date.  The book will be a hardcover book this time.  It'll also be available through Kindle and Google eBook (whatever that is).

Again, I have to give credit where credit is due for this book.  It would not have come to fruition if it wasn't for the assistance I received from the archives of the Italian Navy, RADM Maurizio Ertreo, Vincent P. O'Hara, and Ms. Maria Mia Pizzali.

Without their assistance, this book would be nothing like it is.  I am VERY GRATEFUL for the level and the amount of assistance I received from those people and the Italian Navy.

Thanks to them, this is truly my BEST book ever.

Here's Garth's book at Amazon:




Product Description
The book describes every MAS boat built and operated by the Italian Navy during the First World War, the inter-war years and the Second World War. There are seventy-four images including eight in color.

Tim Connelly is a naval historian who has written books on PT boats, Motor Torpedo Boats, Schnellboote and one-hundred-ten foot wooden hull Sub Chasers. This work, his sixth, is a logical progression of his series of books on minor combatants of World War II.

In researching this book, the author drew on the assistance of the former Naval Attache of the Italian embassy in Washington, DC, and the Italian naval archives.

Great work Garth!
