Now that my Vietnam Book is back in print, I have tried to clean up the messy ending of the previous publisher.

When Military Miniature Press closed down I managed to get a list of 24 people who had paid for books but not received them.

In theory this is not my responsibility as they closed without paying me either, but my name is on the cover, so I feel a moral obligation.

I have tracked down these customers and have arranged for the books to be sent at my cost.

This was quite an expensive exercise but I felt it was important that the orders were fulfilled.

SO, there is the question of refunding with paypal. I paid with paypal, but never get my book. So, I think about escalation via Paypal. Maybe a lot more can go this way. I will ask at Paypal.
Update: You can only get help in 180 days in a conflict. This way won't help....

That's nice of you to do that. Pity Military Miniatures Press couldn't have been more ethical.

I ordered your book back then and I was one who got it. It's a very good book, enjoyed it.

I game the late war in 6mm -  North v.s. South, more balanced than battles between the US and VC/NVA.

@MGH

It wasn't really a question of ethics.

Military Miniature was essentially a start up trying to get a US wargaming magazine & book publisher up and running.

They delivered the Vietnam books to US customers.

The problem came with customers in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, where they had a PDF now and book later deal.

MM had made a global distribution deal with a major publisher, but that fell through in the post pandemic recession.

When that fell through they just ran out of money and closed down.
