In order to keep the focus on exchanging information from the start (30 years ago) it was Valor's unique policy to give old editions (worn, torn, or falling apart) half the value towards the new one that replaced it. (For example, old #6 @ $10 is now worth $9 on new edition #25). This policy of giving 50% credit on old copies (up to 30 days after purchase) also applies to CD replacements.
Satisfaction guaranteed: prepayment required but items are returnable for any reason within 10 days of receipt! (see #7 below)

The form on this Website (ValorWW2.com) may help speed orders but is not essential. Your list should note the title and price. You may pay by check, postal money-order, or credit card.

Items or questions not related to the order should be on a separate page. Also, see GAME Plan'' below.
Larger orders cut handling time so we offer a discount of 1% per $10, starting at $20, up to $200. Anything above $20 starts at 2%. For example, take 5% off if the total is between $50 and $59.99; and 20% off if it is over $200. Since this applies only to items in stock, please consider listing alternate selections. If you an email address we'll send a pro-forma invoice
This provides an account that insures a maximum 20% discount and is most popular with international clients. In simplest terms, when you pay $200 we establish a $250 account credit, replacing our 1% discounts. An account number is assigned for charge purposes. It allows you to place books "on order'' and regenerate the 20% discount with $100 deposits (=$125). The discount also applies to shipping cost.
Please do not forget to enclose your address if it is not on the back of the order form. This tells us where to send it and is not always the same address as that of the person placing the order.
We ship by USPS Priority Mail in standard packages or by "media mail" if significantly less. We do not bill added handling cost unless you request special services such as UPS shipping. Then we add 50% to their cost.
We usually ship by USPS Global Priority which uses packages of fixed size, usually @ $11.95 per 4-lb envelope, or boxes @ $39.95 or $49.95.
AIR MAIL can easily triple this cost. See www.USPS.com for current rates (we do not over-recover and you may claim a refund if actual postage exceeds stamped. (Over 30 years less than a dozen books were "lost"); add about 4% if you require C.O.D. or registry.
The order above is to ship in quality condition within a week. If you are not happy with your purchase for any reason just return it within the same or similar package at the same shipping cost within 10 days. We send full refund for returned items within two weeks (or exchange CD) if we made an error, then shipping costs are also refunded in both directions, but kindly do not accept delivery of damaged packages. You should contact us if the order has not arrived within 15 days). We do not deposit payments until the order is in stock and ready to ship and only "back-order'' if you have a GAME-Plan account. If paid by check, we may send a total refund if most of the items are not available (avoid this by listing alternate selections).
Catalog (Not listed on Web)
The website replaces the old cover sheet of our published catalog, we also list thousands of other books and we will sent a catalog on request.
This applies to the catalog listings. We assume that you generally know what you want and rely on our low prices to sell you. Our one line per book listing is intended to be adequate to confirm the book identity.
Part I consists of four separate lists, updated at different times.
Part II is for simulations and book series that continue the "A" and "M" sections of part I. They consist of books grouped into similar format and usually sequentially numbered. The descriptions below pertain to Part I, which are typically 11x17" pages with occasional 8½ x 11" updates & overflow pages
Government. This section includes Political Science, Sociology &
Economics; Intelligence and counter-terrorism; Strategy, leadership theory and leaders (above army level). There is some overlap with "M" category (on terrorism for example).
Arms, Armies, Aviation. Includes weapon systems, uniform items armies, and various unit histories. It includes Air/Sea and Land subjects that pertains primarily to 20th Century material, with the modeler and collector in mind. Related material prior to WW2 is almost usually placed in this section.
Military History and campaigns. Many historical material prior to WW1 are placed in the E category. The section starts with the World War 2 period.
Environment. (Education, Social Studies, Green Politics, Ecology, Old History ) We consider most history before World War 2 as being culturally framed. There are few direct witnesses so it is part of a political culture that is manufactured in classrooms. Most of it more related to the social environment than more recent history.
How to read the book descriptions in the Catalog.
One one line, these provide minimal technical descriptions as to the number of illustrations, maps, charts, and pages.
Shown in capital letters, usually followed with subheading in lower case.
This and price are needed on the order form.
indicates price in U.S. dollars. Pay the lower of 2 prices listed if 2.
Or editor's name is shown if there is space.
The "(P)" indicates paper-binding with (HvP) indicating one of library-grade, otherwise assume that it is a hard cover book.
1 pound added to weight, otherwise assume 1 pound per item
In sequence "i/m/p" describe the book contents. The first entry (i) indicates number of illustrations, with "+c" meaning added color; the second (m) refers to charts, tables, or maps; and the third (p) indicates the quantity of text pages including those not numbered (because some publishers don't number photo pages or "foreword" sections (we want to be consistent).
After pages entry; indicates a large format, X is between 70 to 99 in2; XX= between 100 and 129 in2; and XXX = greater than 130 in2.
Used books. Many of the books are used and condition varies from having been on a library shelf or barely read. Since these are often not easily found the price is unrelated to the original price.
