A few of these are not free here in the States...but they're only $0.99. And a couple that are free are reduced from $12.99 and 9.99 or so...great deals, Pete, thanks!

I don't understand their price settings.  Prices I mentioned are those that show up in Europe.

I also picked this one up for $3.25 (normal price about $30) :

Enduring the Whirlwind: The German Army and the Russo-German War 1941-1943 (Wolverhampton Military Studies) by Gregory Liedtke

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073WF9S9W/ref=pe_385040_118058080_TE_M1DP


You can also check these (free for me) :

Yeah, I have my eye on that one, too. It's $2.99 here. Showing as $59.95 (!!!) at "normal" price.  :buck2:

I'm tempted but I already have tons of books and not really looking for anything new on the Eastern Front. But...Eastern Front, dammit!

I don't get the price differences either. I'd understand if they charged $2.99 here and 2.51 Euros there (according to the exchange rate right now, 2.99 US is 2.51 EUR). But $3.25 there and 2.99 here seems like price gouging. Granted it's not much of a difference but I'm sure there's wider differences in other products.

Thanks again, Pete!

The George Patton book is coming up as free ($0.00) here in the US, but the other two are showing up as 'free' only with a Kindle Unlimited subscription ($9.99/month).

I don't have Unlimited and still got them for $0.00 ...
