    1. Kampfzone is a quarterly journal focusing on German ground operations in World War 2. Issue 1 is printed, but we just need to sort out some postage and subscription matters first. It will be available through our website.

  2. Hello,
    I am very interested in Kampfzone. Please let me know, when it will be released.
    May I order it via mail or do you deliver it to Berliner Zinnfiguren und Bücherkabinett, too?
    I am living in Berlin, buying a copy there will be a pleasure….
