Battle Books: Arnhem is available now!

You can now buy: Arnhem, part of the Battle Books range from Franklin Watts/Hachette Publishing's Edge imprint. I've just recived my copy and it looks rather nice if I do say so myself.  When I first received the commission I was concerned I was going to be asked to tone down the violence and make a sanitised version (as often happens in publishing), but thanks to the excellent senior editor Adrian Cole I was allowed to put in plenty of gore, blood and severed limbs. Drawing this book and it's sister title Iwo Jima was a real treat for my inner 14 year old.

We've provided the art for 2 books in the Battlebooks series, and the other 2 books have been illustrated by good friend of Cool Surface Ollie Cuthbertson go check out his blog to see more art from his Hastings book.

Buy Arnhem from Amazon.co.uk for the bargain price of £5.39 delivered now:

Have fun,
