Posters

By Dale Hovey

My son reads your magazine, do you have any posters, Napoleon? Or others?

Thanks

Mr. Hovey,

Thanks very much for your email to Armchair General magazine. We’re very pleased to hear that your son reads ACG and hope he enjoys the magazine.

We do not have any full-sized posters at the moment, although we’ve made some initial discussions with our photographer, Seimon Pugh-Jones, about turning some of his great combat recreation photos we use in some of our magazine articles into posters. Nothing firm on this yet, but it’s a possibility for the future. Watch our website (www.armchairgeneral.com) for any future info on this subject.

However, we did include one 10 1/2X15 poster and two ‘mini-posters’ in three of our previous issues. The ‘mini-posters’ were 8X10 1/2 size and all three are on quality magazine paper and highly suitable for framing. These were:

–July 2005 ACG, volume II, no. 3: Napoleon Crossing the Alps painting by Jacques-Louis David (the opposite side of this magnificent painting is an exclusive map of all of Napoleon’s famous battles).

–September 2005 ACG, volume II, no. 4: the Iwo Jima flag raising by photographer Joe Rosenthal (the inspiration for the Clint Eastwood films, Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters From Iwo Jima"

–November 2005 ACG, volume II, no. 5: General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur’s "Duty, Honor, Country" speech given at West Point (very inspiring and a military classic)

These back issues are available for sale on our website for $9.95 each, if you are interested. Since you specifically mention Napoleon, that one may be of special interest to you and your son. That issue, July 2005, is listed in the upper right of the Back Issues web page in the "Best Sellers" column.

Thanks again, and our best wishes to your son.
