Skennerton Books

World renowned British Military author Ian Skennerton has researched full-time at the Public Records Office and other libraries, worked and catalogued arms at the Tower of London, Imperial War Museum, National Army Museum, Enfield Pattern Room, and travelled farther afield in the pursuit of more research material. He has visited Britain many times for ongoing research, photography and book projects as well as the United States, Canada, New Zealand , Timor and Europe. There is certainly no substitute for this first-hand research of source material that he continues to publish about both in written and Documentary format.

Ian is kindly offering his very long list of titles for sale in New Zealand by reading the AUD price listed on his website as NZD plus 15% GST (and p&p as applicable) thus avoiding exchange rate variations and fees plus expensive postage costs from Australia.
