Osprey all over the world!

Posted by Michael Kazich on September 18, 2014

A while ago I lent a friend of mine a copy of a campaign book. She was interested in the Battle of Little Bighorn, so I told her; "I've got just the thing!" What I didn't know is that I wouldn't see the book again for several months as my friend took it around Europe with her as she went interrailing! She finally got round to reading it in the city of Riga, Latvia, and emailed me out of the blue to tell me that she was enjoying it. So I began to wonder, just how many of the world's countries have seen an Osprey book? And what is the most far flung, exotic or plain weirdest place you've ever taken one? Get in touch and let me know!
