Good day everyone,
A few things from World of Tanks PC, first up, from 16 January to 21 February you can earn Personal Reserves, Premium Consumables and Equipment for playing Random Battles in Swedish tanks.
For the historians out there, WarGaming will be offering a reprint of the legendary book Firepower: A History of the Heavy American Tank. It will be a limited run from 6-8 weeks, with a price tag of $59.95. Also comes with an in-game bonus code.
Edit: Listed publishers price. Pre-Orders can be made at the publishers site here.

What does the code give you?
Oooooh, WG getting into publishing. That is a seriously important reprint, and compared to the original price, $50 is cheap.
WG has been into the book publishing for a few years now. Their division or partner is called Tactical press, they’ve mostly published books in Russian about Russian tanks. http://www.labirint.ru/pubhouse/3548/
I’ve read Hunnicuts book on the patton, tempted to get this one as well
Any idea what the bonus code does?
How do i get my hands on said reprint?
A bonus code for T14 would really fit the content of the book. But I wouldnt be surprised when it is just random shit like 3 premium days +1000 Gold.
this page is for the actual rewards for the swedish event
If the bonus code is a Mutant I’m gonna freak!
i want that book
Compared to I have paid for some tank books, $50 is indeed cheap. I must admit, my interest in American heavy tank development isn’t that great, so I’m on the fence on this book.
Seeing the usual prices online for this book, $50 is damn cheap. I might just pick it up anyway.
I googled where i could get a reprint and it gave me a link to wargaming’s website, then said the page didn’t exist? so where can i get a copy of this book?
Added a link to the publishers site lads. WG fudged the price on their site. Made the appropriate changes.
…and its sold out. thats honestly crushing lol.
Sold out already. Damn. Would have liked a copy, even though I am an ancient historian.
Oath. So dissapointed. Must have been an extremely limited reprint
You would think they would print based on the number or pre-orders rather then limit pre-orders based on the number of prints
Not happy that it’s already out of stock, I want this book
Wahoo! I was afraid this has been canceled! I’ll definitely be snatching this up and telling my few tank-history-buff friends about it too!
Doh. Just tried to pre order it, the website tells me it is out of stock. is it alreay gone? FFS!
it’s sold out…..not that it matters. 60 bucks is above my paygrade, and i’ll end up just buying another game first
Damn, I hope they’ll have more soon.
it’s price is $59.95. it is almost $60. but most of the people (actually 2 of 3) said it’s $50. that proofs the mindgames of capitalism and marketing techniques are working as intended. GG, WP.
What are you on about? This article first said it was 50 dollars and then corrected it. That’s what your capitalist mindgames are, geez. This is not a an official WG site, somebody simply made a small mistake, sheesh.
calm down hero, slowly put your gun down and get some sleep.
i did not know it was written 50 dollars before edit.
and if u think that mindgamez does not work on you, i have nothing to say.
but we see that xx,99 / xx,95 prices everywhere for a reason.
The reason that some prices tend to be at xx.99 or xx95 is that humans are stupid and buy more products at those prices than if they were listed honestly at xx.50 or xx.00. I tend to round off those prices to the highest values most of the time so those tactics don’t work that well with me.
In anycase this book being 50 or 60 is irrelevant as it’s a good price even at 100 seeing as the older prints can run into the thousands of dollars.
BTW the book is already sold-out on the site.
Is the bonus code for the EU? The book company are in the US
ohhhh it’s no longer saying it’s out of stock! got my preorder in! Keen as hell for it
Hey i like your Blog, and this post. check out my Blog as well🙂, it is for a school project so please do leave criticism and comments,thanks !
Hurray, got one, too. Paying about as much in shipping as for the actual book, and probably customs, too, when it gets here. But, whatever, this is going to be a nice addition to my collection of historical literature. (Although it may seem a tad out of place next to ‘the archaeology of the roman economy’.)
