Book Delivery Starts Now.


It would appear that the books should start arriving by post in the next day or so, at least in the U.K.

I'll be pleased to take comments and to publish them. However, I must ask that the "ending" isn't mentioned. I really want to keep the story going for those who decide they'd like to continue following the blog. I'll be ruthless and reject any comments that may give anything away.

I now am immensely insecure - worrying that the lovely, loyal, world-wide community of readers following Harry's progress, will be disappointed when they receive my best effort at a book.

If you have a moment, have a look at the stunning Cornish seascapes I've discovered. They just capture the light and atmosphere of the coast down here in West Cornwall. Click BL

You just keep this going. I have been watching this from almost the beginning here in Illinois USA. I will buy the book for my son AFTER this blog is finished because I don't want to know the end, yet. This is part of my morning ritual.

BTW, I looked up the General Beauman, ...interesting dude.

I think that the heart and soul you have put into the project will show. Even not havings seen a copy, I am sure I am going to love it.

Yes Amazon have just let me know that my copy is in the post.. marvelous. I am glad that you haven't gone right to the end, I was a bit concerned that I would have had to read it all, even though I promised myself I wouldnt. How can you possibly be worried about how the book has turned out, it has been such a marvelous journey for us all, we could never be disappointed. Well done you!

Darn it, no word from Amazon(US) on when they'll be shipping: "we'll notify you" is all she wrote.....

Oh well, don't know if I'll have the fortitude anyway to set the book aside and not read it until AFTER we finally get word that Harry's home: maybe it's just as well I've got to wait to get hold of it!

It's arrived! got it yesterday. I have stroked it and smelt it (like you do with all new books) and flicked it. I am going to find a quiet corner today and try my hardest not to look at the end.

I will get myself a copy, but after the end is known. I know I would be reading the book from back to front.

I got a mail from Amazon.UK: the book has been sent to Italy! Looking forward to it. My English-Italian dictionary is going to effort a hard job.
2nd good news:getting the book from IBS (an Italian kind of Amazon, very good for Italian books) I discovered it would cost 24,59€!!!!!Quite TWICE!!
Thank you Bill for ALL you did

My book arrived in good time, I started to read it and am doing so slowly, so as not to get near the end before the blog does. I imagine other readers are doing the same. Few are in a position to give a full resume!

I am very impressed with the technical quality as well as the amount of material you have amassed, and its presentation. You have made a brilliant job of writing a book on its own account, not just a rehash of the blog.

You have really done Harry justice - and I also think the BBC probably pinched the idea of following up letters home in their series of programmes last November with celebrities (memorably, Dan Snow and Rolf Harris) meeting historians at the battlefields.
