Hello,

I'd appreciate if some kind soul can point me to the book (or more of them) that deals with Oerlikon autocannons, either as sole topic, or predominant topic. I'm interested mostly in 1930s-1940s, but a bigger time frame also works. Any language.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know of a book about Oerlikons, although there are lots of technical descriptions in Chinn. For a brief outline of the subject you can try this article on my website (which includes a link to the family tree, which might be of interest).

There will be rather more in my next book, should that eventually surface...

Do we need to order pre-order the book, like Ian has people do, in order to get things finished?

Tony - thank you for the feedback.

Farmplinker - now that's a good idea.

No, the book is finished. It isn't yet definite who will publish it, though.
