    Flashpoint China: Chinese Air Power and the Regional Balance

    This is Deino's new book...and it is already out on Amazon.

    IS this the one we have been speaking of Deino, that the publisher did not want you to prematurely announce?

    From the Introduction/Summary of the book:

    I decided, since Deino is already very well published with books that many of us here have read, and since he is recognized and respected universally in military quarters regarding air power, and since we have one of his other Chinese related books highlighted, to make another thread for this new book of his.

    Can't wait to get it and read it.

    Just pre-ordered Deino's book on Amazon, waiting to pre-order Dragons Fury II next. How's that coming along, Jeff?

    Hehehe...slowly, my friend.

    With the big trip to Houston and my medical checkup, I have not made much progress the last six weeks or so. Hope to get back on it this fall.

    I will post here to SD as soon as I either have more content to share, or when it is going to print.

    In the meant time...Deino has this new book out there, and it is a factual, non-fiction look that I am excited to get.

    Is the publisher interested in making an electronic version for Kindle?

    I second that question. An electronic copy is more convenient and readily accessible for me.

    Actually, a hardcover copy with Deino's hand signature would be nice.

    To me its senseless to buy books on Chinese air power as things are moving so fast in China that by the time the book hits the shelfs the information in it is already outdated.:(

    The best place to keep track of Chinese military development is on internet forums like SDF.:D

    yes for you, but the majority of military enthusiasts are not as knowledgeable as you are, and the book will be good and relevant for at least 3 years. I may order one
