Is this book still available? What would a mint copy go for used?

That book remind me of another Oleg's patch.
Will be reissued in 2 weeks. Be sure.

Is it supposed to be reissued?

What does a new copy (1st edition) go for? I might want to buy one.

I saw it on e-bay for $700 bucks the other day.

I sold mine on amazon about a month ago for $450. I see one for $375 right now. That's the cheapest I've seen in a while.

It is an excellent read. I read it 3 or 4 times through, but I'm just not sure it's worth multiple hundreds of bucks.

I turned around and bought this one...

Barbarossa: The Air Battle July- December 1941 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1857802705)

Under $40-- it's much more reasonable.

It is also by Bergstrom and covers the same subject and time period. This is a later book and though it's not as lengthy, it has 100x better looking illustrations than BCRS vol 1.

SC, I paid through the nose for a copy two years ago. The author has sometimes mentioned a reprint, but, to my knowledge, there isn't one on the horizon. Volume one is not as impressive as the other two. Printed on plain paper. Get it from inter-library loan or pay the piper like I did.

Yeah, but does the book have any CHARTS !!!

Hi SkyChimp...

Found this

It's been hacked. Now anybody can write in the book anything they want and change history.

We will have to wait for Black Cross / Red and Blue Circle for the fix. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That said, Chris Bergstrom has another volume called Barbarossa - The Air Battle: July - December 1941. Amazon.com ftw.

To tell the truth, I have a new copy in a plastic cover.
