Editorial Reviews

"This book followed me around; it captured my interest and made want to carry it with me. I read this book while wearing a number of different 'hats': ...history fan, a diorama builder, a researcher, and casual reader. This book meets the needs of all. As mentioned it was easy to read, comprehensive, full of details, great maps, great photos, and art work... I completely enjoyed this book and look forward to using it over and over for information and inspiration." -Scott Lodder, Armorama (April 2006)
