On the eve of the 65th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe, Larry Alexander returns to the very battlefields that made Easy Company a legend. Accompanied by Easy veteran Sgt.

(For those of you who are allergic to cat dander)

We do offer combined shipping.  We give a $1.75 discount on the shipping of each additional item after the first.  New listings reflect this on the invoice.  Older listings may not.  Please contact us for assistance if the discount does not show on your invoice. 

We deal mostly in used books.  So most of our books will show some defects and wear from what ever usage and care they received from previous owner(s).  But this in no way takes away from the readability or enjoyment of any of the used books we sell.

We do offer an occasional new book and will indicate in our listing and description the book is new.

We also have a few audio books in stock/listed. 


All our books are packed in a plastic bag when listed, then when sold, they are placed, still inside the original bag, into a bag/box that is totally sealed in shipping/packing tape. All of our items are packed in packages that have been sealed with tape as indicated.  This prevents any moisture from getting inside to spoil your book/item during the shipping process.  We take pride in the safe shipping of all our items.
