Actually, it's Randy Harvey's review, Al. But it's good to see exclusively British topics finding the attention of publishers. And no Nazis anywhere in sight! LOL

I have this volume and the new one from Osprey on Marshall Bill Slim. A much unsung battle and the Commonwealth troops who fought it should have no doubt about this fight , They were under hideous conditions facing a merciless enemy and they triumphed.

Its great to see some of the less prominent battles getting some attention from companies now. And the Osprey books are always excellent value.
Thanks for the review Randy!

Thank you Dave and Anirudh.

After doing this review I learned a lot about this battle. I am glad that Osprey publishes these books about individual campaigns and battles. They prove to be a great resource and a wealth of knowledge.

I am glad my review was helpful.

Thanks again,
Randy
