About Us


Castraponere Publishing


Castraponere Publishing is an independently owned business with the express purpose of producing and publishing niche books by independent authors. We opened our doors on 7 December 2013 with the publication of Blood on the Talon: 139th Airborne Engineer Battalion 1943-1945 Volume I: Unit History. Castraponere is the Latin term for "to make camp". After moving repeatedly for over 34 years with the military, the owners plan on putting down roots and devoting their attention to publishing.


Future Plans


Catraponere Publishing will develop and publish additional volumes covering the 139th Airborne Engineer Battalion and eventually delve into the histories of other units from the 17th Airborne Division. Several additional trips to the National Archives are planned to gather the required documentation.
