Many thanks Randy for this review.

Had you seen the Dick Taylor's "into the Vally" book ?
(excellent work indeed, see review here : http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=8452

Trying to figure out if this Osprey/NV add extra info/pictures despite is smaller format ? (Fletcher's NV 141 on the Firefly was a good addition to the Mark Hayward's "bible" on this British-17 pdr-M4 from Barbarossa book)

Thanks. all the best.

Many thanks Randy for this review.

You're welcome st Miller. Glad that you liked it. I hadn't seen Dick Taylor's "into the Vally" until I used the link you provided, thanks. Looks like a nice book. The title I reviewed does show several different variants of the Valentine. I listed some of them in my review. I really like the Osprey books as they do provide a wealth of information for a book their size. I think that they are well worth picking up.

Thanks again,
