A short post to flag the publishing of the ebook edition of The King's Crew. This 417 page ebook finally covers the complete 1941-2014 unit history of an ATC squadron in NZ. To my knowledge it's the first unit history published in this country since Neal Frances's short work 20 years ago. The book follows my 2012 multimedia film history of this squadron.
The new book is only available sofar as an ebook. It is available on Amazon at www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B00OT2S0B6?*Version*=1&*entries*=0 and direct from the author. In the abscence of any published ATC national development history in NZ (apart from Wayne Henderson's unpublished cadet manuscript), I included coverage of the corps development in the UK and NZ.
The book has 325 photos, charts and illustrations and is the most comprehensive ATC unit history published to date. The combination of a squadron unit history in book form plus matching film version is unique. Proceeds go to the cadets. Rex
Hi and thanks for your enquiry. The Amazon price is USD34.95 (NZD44.74), versus the only other 2014 ATC publication i.e. the UK Kidd history at NZD71 (GBP35). My Amazon publishing contract prevents me discounting, so the price is $NZ44.74. The book is sold in Kindle format i.e. it can be read on any Kindle ebook reader and any PC or laptop, tablet or Mac, via the free Kindle Reader download. I'm prepared to supply a PDF format version to you on a single-user licence basis if that helps. Any Acrobat reader will read that and nearly every PC has that these days and it's a FOC download too, if you need it. Proceeds go the cadets. Rex
PS: In the book is a special package offer to purchase the "King's Crew" multimedia film at a 50% discount off the $49.95 price. This is only for purchasers of the 2014 book "The King's Crew". The package price for the new book plus companion film on a direct sale basis then is $NZ70.00. This package is to the best of my knowledge, the only such squadron unit history package. Rex
