Editorial Reviews

"Author Michael Lynch does a superlative job of telling the story of both sides... Superbly illustrated by rare period photographs as well as the work of artists of the time and some excellent maps, the full unfolding of events has been made much more clear. This is a superb book on the subject and one that I know you will enjoy. Highly recommended." -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
