Bill told me at the TCA Show that every time this thread went back to the top of the Board he sold a book or two.

 

Don't disappoint!!!

Another great Thompson book that deserves another round at the top of the Board. This is a must have for your Thompson library.

 

Did you know Auto-Ordnance Corporation Vice-President Frederic Willis was Russell Maguire's best man at his 1942 wedding? I didn't either...until I read Bill's book!

Bill was kind enough to send me an signed copy before Christmas that I only had a chance to briefly thumb through. So looking forward to getting back to the UK tomorrow to read through it in more detail, together with a copy of 'American Thunder III', which should be on its way to my address in the UK.

So plenty of reading ahead for me.

Stay safe
Richard

I was looking at this book last night. It deserves another bump to the top for our new Board members.

 

A must have for every Thompson enthusiast!!!

Yes a bump is overdue.

 

The Christmas season is here.  Someone needs an Auto-Ordnance gift.

 

The book is available at:    aocbridgeportetc.com

Since I'm old and slow, (lol)  I'm taking my cue from Tom and bumping this back to the top.  I have several copies available of "The Auto-Ordnance Corporation: The People - Who They Were, Where They Worked, What They Made" .

 

The website to order from is:   aocbridgeportetc.com 

 

The cost is $49.95 plus shipping.  Again, they make good Christmas gifts when it's hard to find something different for the Thompson collector or WWII history buff.

We have many new Board members since this thread about Bill's book has been to the top of the Board. There are not many informative books about the Auto-Ordnance Corporation based on new research with never before published information. Put this book at the top of the list - a great addition to any library! If you're looking for a new Thompson book, give this one a review at Bill's website. You will not be disappointed.
