Just thought this would be of interest to Council members, stumbled on a small military history publisher via Amazon last week while looking for a couple books for my PhD that I didn't even know were in print. They were selling hardcover reprints of both, S.C. Rolls' (Lawrence's driver) Steel Chariots in the Desert and Kermit Roosevelt's (of Mossadeq fame) Armoured Cars in Eden. They're a bit like Battery Press, in that they sell reprinted books that are decades or even centuries old, but their stuff seems to be lower level, campaign journals or books by subalterns and the like. Looks like they're especially strong on Peninsular War and WWI stuff. They are in the UK, but I got the three books I bought via Amazon.
