Easter Egg Hunt!

Now then ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls – instead of a Friday list, today we've organised a treat in the spirit of the season!

Let nobody say that Osprey are not about fun and games – just because we are military history purveyors doesn’t mean we are morose.

So we’ve organised an Easter egg hunt!

US Heavy Cruisers - some footage

Posted by Michael Kazich on April 16, 2014

This month sees the release of US Heavy Cruisers 1941-1945.

I delved into this because I didn't know much about this class of ship, except that they played a significant role in the Pacific Ocean in World War II.

After a bit of digging I found some related stock footage - something I always love doing.

The 5 greatest war novels

Posted by on April 11, 2014

Hello folks, welcome to the Friday list!

Today I have chosen a topic that is close to my heart - war novels. The following pieces of fictional writing are not only great resources for learning about military history ( in many cases they are based on the experiences of the author) but they are also some of my favourite pieces of fiction ever.

It is Book Fair time! The Osprey team head for London Book Fair!

Posted by Mike on April 08, 2014

It is London Book Fair time again (I'm sure the gaps between each Fair are getting shorter every year) and after the organized chaos of the last couple of weeks a tranquil calm has settled over Osprey HQ. Spinner racks, catalogues and books have all been lovingly wrapped up and nestled in the van. The Osprey team have dug their suits out of the back of the closet. The sweets and snacks for our reception area have been carefully hidden from prying eyes and racks of bottled water have been purchased to hydrate those about to embark upon hours of intense discussions.
