DISASTER!!! Kurtz and Allison debacle....
Today had been quite a positive day. It is Friday, the weekend beckons and then of course there is the small matter of Skirmish at Sidcup on Sunday. I had a stimulating wargame related email exchange with Bob Cordery and Irregular Miniatures confirmed a few details about their French Foreign Legion figures which was very helpful. I then heard from home to the effect that a large flat parcel had arrived.
I knew what this was and so walked from the train station with a spring in my step and looking forward to opening my parcel.
I was in no hurry as there was a very nice Chilli to eat for dinner first of all. Small talk with the family was over with as was the clearing up so i sat down to open the mysterious package.
The dust jacket was as described - a little ragged around the edges - and the overall condition of the book was very good - as you would expect for a book with a cover price of US$ 250.00 (I kid you not).
Something was not quite right.
The book is supposed to contain all 36 of the ACW prints in chronological order.
18 prints had been cut out of the book and were missing and one more had been cut out but was still in place so proceeded to fall out when I opened the page anyway.
I am slightly north of way beyond disappointed....
