Shipped on the 18th from germany, it has not yet arrived on the far away shores of distant Portugal...

I guess they are using pack-mules and are probably only now crossing the Pirenees...

Maybe some day...

I order mine Christmas morning - then left town for a week.

I was surprised to see that it was out for delivery on Dec 27th! ( well I shouldn't have been too surprised I think I live about 5 miles from warehouse ).

I'll be picking up at post office when I return!

Thanks
Rick

Probably the delay is with the CTT.

Worth the wait guys....easily the best manual I've ever received (and I'm a huge manual/strategy guide nerd). High quality paper and binding. You'll love it.

Just wanted to say thanks gang for not making the shipment the same fiasco I had with "World in Flames" which shipping alone was like 40% of the value of the game. In this case the slightly under the $10.00 CDN for shipping me the physical copy was well worth it. Will not even mind paying any duties if that is the luck of the draw I have in this case. Thanks for revisiting your shipping practices for WITW. Will look forward to receiving my hard copy and manual in the days to come.

All the best and thanks again for working on this for us Canucks!

I just received the book. It is awesome!! I find reading the book easier than reading the PDF file. Can you purchase the book separately? If so, what is the cost?

At last the book arrived! Wow they are slow in the Danish mail. So now I'm just waiting for a new patch and hopefully someone to produce a gameplay video or something else that can explain how to do the things that the book tells about.

Book arrived today here in Australia.
Absolutely worth the wait. To say I am impressed is an understatement, larger than I thought it was going to be the hardcover, full colour and each page like a semigloss not just plain paper, fantastic. The way it was packaged was also impressive given it was a book.

I have missed my manuals, Empire Earth, Civ 3, etc, I enjoyed reading often, nerdy I know, would consider this for future purchases, provided I considered the game it was attached to an above average game.

Just FYI, the second wave of manual stock is arriving in our warehouses this week, which will give us plenty of copies to handle additional orders.

Regards,
