Pen & Sword Books publish an amazing array of book that are of great interest & value to any genealogist or history lover. I’m a great fan of their books and can recommend them. You can buy them through The Book Depositary which offers free postage worldwide, a great saving when some book sellers charge as much for the postage as for the book.
