Goodmorning everyone
Finally, after 4 years of work, the new book on Italian cartridges from 1861 to 1946 is about to arrive.
It will be presented at the Militaria fair in Milan on 1 November 2020 (Covid permitting) and to follow at the ECRA meeting in Aerzen in November (Covid permitting);on both occasions it will be possible to purchase the book at a promotional price.
From the end of November the possibility of online purchase will begin (I will keep you updated on this post).

Hello John
It will be shipped to the USA, I will keep you updated at the end of November, there will be instructions for ordering them.

Hello Nicola, I am also interested when it is available for shipping to the USA.

Does the book include any English or just Italian (such as descriptions/captions for photos)? And what is the largest caliber covered?

Thank you!

In the book there are all the captions of the images also in English. The introductions to the chapters are also in English.
