UK-based Osprey Publishing is offering up 5 free e-Books each week to fans of military history. It is a limited time offer lasting four weeks only. I just recently became aware of it and missed out on week 1 however I did download the titles for week 2 and so can you if you grab them before the weekend (it appears new titles are offered every Saturday).
Week 2’s titles include:
- Hawker Hurricane Mk I–V by Martyn Chorlton
- Waterloo 1815 (1) by John Franklin
- The Czech Legion 1914–20 by David Bullock
- US Heavy Cruisers 1943–75 by Mark Stile
- Samurai 1550–1600 by Anthony J Bryant
There are no strings attached although you do need to register an account which is free to do. Look for the “Blog” section in the middle of the Osprey Home page for links to the current week’s offer which includes details on the titles and how to obtain them. In short, you’ll add the e-Book titles you’re interested in to the shopping cart and then use the special code to receive a 100% discount. FYI, when you go to “checkout” you’ll need to provide address information however you will not need to include payment details. The confirmation page includes a link to an online library where you can download the e-books to your computer.
Osprey includes an impressive range of titles covering all eras and military subjects. I have a number in my own research library and recommend you check them out.

Thanks so much for the tip! it’s a good move on Osprey’s part because it took me to the site and I spent $200 CAD on other titles.
You’re very welcome … yes, a very generous and clever promotion by Osprey. They have so many great books that I completely understand why you spent the $200. I may pick up a couple of titles myself although my bookshelves are stuffed and I’ve run out of floor space for any more!
