Default New IJN Submarine Book To Be Released Next June?

I happened to see this on Amazon a while ago - does anyone know anything about these authors and their work? I.e., does this have the possibility of turning out to be a good piece of work, or would it be a waste of time and money to buy? I personally I have no idea.

Osprey is still publishing those things? Their thick hardcovers are nice and worth the price, but $15 for a 48-page paperback that barely skims the subject is a complete rip-off.

Default Sub Book

I guess I will not be buying it then. Maybe after it has been out for awhile, and can be found on eBay for about 50 cents...:hmm:

I bought the US sub book and the Kaiser's U-boats, they're okay. It's just a general book, nothing too deep (no pun intended) . I like their avaition series more. I do like the drawings though.
