Reviews

Once again a winner in my opinion. No, it still hasn t made me an expert on World War I, but has increased the knowledge base a little in a simple, easy to understand format. Osprey is to be commended for their continued coverage of this neglected period. I highly recommend this to any figure modeler or painter with an interest in this time period, for a general overview, and some interesting figure/vignette ideas. For those interested in a more detailed study of various countries uniforms during WWI, be sure to see some of Ospreys other offerings. -Dave O'Meara, Historicus Forma (August 2005) Once again a winner in my opinion.
