Type XXI & XXIII book qwery

Postby cporc » Fri May 29, 2009 12:35 am

Is anyone familiar with this book?

"The development of new types of U-boats in Germany during World War II: Construction, trials and first operational experience of the Type XXI, XXIII and Walter U-boats"
by Werner Rahn Supposedly published in 1988.

In an Amzon listing the "ASIN number is B0007BSZYA" (whatever that is).


But of course it is out of stock.

I cannot find anything on it, can anyone help?

I have an extra new copy around here somewhere. Will dig around and see if I can find it (when I do I'll know what I paid for it and will let you know).

Hi

As you know it is an out of print book.

In an Amzon listing the "ASIN number is B0007BSZYA" (whatever that is).

This is a pre-order registration number to buy that book when it becomes available.

If you go to Amazon Books and plug that number in it will bring you to a page where you can pre-order that book when it a used copy becomes available.

I am not familiar with this particular book but I am familiar with many of the other Type XXI and XXIII books on the market

Thank You
Myles

Hi Jeff

You should be able to buy that book at any book store if they don't have in stock they can order it.

Myles I have been on the list since June when I posted the original query thanx.

tabledancer - Myles' reply was to my question I believe. If you enter that number you will be requesting the wrong book :.{

Have you tried http://www.bookfinder.com/ ?

It is the best I have found for searching for both new and used books. Searches can be run by Title, Author, Keyword, or ISBN.

True. But if someone needs to order it anyway...why not go to the source. No need to the middle-man, eh? Plus you would then have it delivered directly to your home.

-Jeff

p.s. Of course, if a bookstore will sell it to you for a discount, that could change things.
