My next military history book has a cover!

My next book from Osprey Publishing will be released in September 2011 but is already up on Amazon UK with a lovely cover. Armies of the Adowa Campaign is about Ethiopia's crushing defeat of an Italian colonial army in 1896. This book was one of the reasons I went to Ethiopia this year, the other being to write an Ethiopia travel series for Gadling.

The cover is from an old French magazine called Le Petit Journal and comes courtesy of Bertrand Duquénois, a talented photographer I met in Addis Ababa. He recently took the plunge and moved to Ethiopia to work as a tour guide. Am I jealous? Oh yes. Check out his website for some excellent photos of Ethiopia.

The book is available for preorder (hint, hint) and should appear on the U.S. Amazon sometime soon.
