Apparently not only does Amazon.co.uk offer editions of Osprey books with different covers (see below)<br>
<br>
www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obi...03-2361232<br>
<br>
They even release the 2nd versions before Osprey announces them:<br>
Imperial Roman Legionary (2): AD 161-244 (Warrior)<br>
www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obi...03-2361232<br>
<br>
unless this is a reprint? It is marked with a 2. <p>Richard Campbell, Legio XX<br>

Must admit that i really was looking for a list of the kings of Tibet. I´m really amazed by the info on that site (were on earth do you find a list of the kings of ASSAW or KONTA. I don´t even know were those countries were, let along heard from them. <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://pub45.ezboard.com/bromanarmytalk.showUserPublicProfile?gid=pelgr003>pelgr003</A> at: 7/18/03 7:59 am<br></i>

Seems to be confusion at Amazon.UK, but there is going to be a 2nd book!<br>

Dear Richard Campbell<br>
<br>
There does seem to be some confusion on the amazon.co.uk website concerning our Roman warrior titles.<br>
<br>
We are currently trying to contact amazon to request that they update their information.<br>
<br>
The title you referred to Imperial Roman Legionary AD 161-244(Warrior 72)is not published until December 2003 and has been incorrectly listed by amazon as being available in July 2003.<br>
<br>
Amazon.co.uk has also incorrectly listed the title Imperial Roman Legionary: 31 BC - AD 43 (Warrior) on their site. This title was cancelled and was replaced by Roman Legionary 58 BC- AD 69(Warrior 71).<br>
