Desert Prelude: Operation Compass

It seems that the book is available for order since I've received my "writer's copies" and according to MMP's webpage the book is available for sale (http://mmpbooks.biz/mmp/books.php?book_id=135 ) even if it's only available for pre-order at Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Desert-Prelude-Operation-Compass-White/dp/8361421181/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1299338158&sr=8-1 ).

This book covers the air war during "Operation Compass" from December 1940 until the fall of Beda Fomm on 7 February 1941 and thus concludes mine and Ludovico Slongo's "Desert Prelude".
