Just found it was translated : The Devil's Cloth : A History of Stripes by Michel Pastoureau, translation by Jody Gladding, Washington Square Press, June 2003. Around $ 13 on Amazon.
Enjoy the reading. Nearly finished it : it is really interesting.

Left Hand of Darkness- Ursula Leguin
It's a Science-Fiction/ Fantasy novel. Kind of strange about a man that goes to another planet. Although it is quite good and won the Hugo Award.

Yes! Jaws of Darkness by Harry Turtledove! It's finally out!

The Darkness series is historical fantasy. What Turtledove has done is created a fantasy world and played out the events of the Second World War in it. He uses about 15 viewpoint characters to show how the story evolves from all viewpoints; common soldiers, resistance leaders, generals, diplomats, prisoners of war, civilians, police officers, etc.

In the way he's done his fantasy, technology has been entirely replaced by magic. Instead of guns you have "sticks" that generate rays of magical fire. Bombs are replaced by "eggs" which explode with magical force. Armour-covered behemoths (think furry rhinos) are like tanks, while dragons and leviathans replace airplanes and submarines.

The series is amazing, and I've been tracking it pretty eagerly for about four years now. Jaws is the 5th of 6 books in the series, and I can't wait for the last one to come out.
