It seems the good folks at Osprey are making some titles available free to help keep people busy.

Thanks Bob. Only problem is I am having trouble registering for the offer. I have contacted Osprey for help.

Bob,

Wow, that's a great offer. There are two books of direct interest to me, but why not get the rest while one can?!

The blurb is initially a little confusing ("read through the options" - do I get one book, or can I have all five free?), but the discount code applies to multiple books :)

Many thanks for posting,

Simon

Thanks to Bob, I'm now the happy owner of this week's 5 free eBooks:

 - US Marine vs Japanese Infantryman (which will be very helpful when I finally get around to painting my PBI Japanese company)
 - Blackbeardís Last Fight (includes a couple of nice boarding action plates)
 - The Martini-Henry Rifle (very detailed on the guns, but with some nice colour illustrations of both Zulu War and Sudan actions)
 - Bf 109E/F vs Yak-1/7 (again, lots of detail and a good number of both black-and-white photos and colour plates - including some interesting black-and-white Bf 109 camouflage)
 - Sassanian Elite Cavalry AD 224Ė642 (very colourful - I may get the DBA army done one day...)

Would I have bought them all at full price? Possible not... Am I pleased I have them for free? Absolutely!

Thanks for the headsup.  Got the books as well. Worked for me but had problems finding out how to get past the checkout the first time. Its finding that little "no payment required button" that is hard.
