Looks like an intensive, informative book at such a good price! Nice write up too!

Not really a big fan of books nowadays being as so much info is available on the web. Plus the cost of just a small Osprey book like their How to Model series is to high to justify the purchase which is a shame.

Having said that though I want a copy of this one. I just hope its not the usual exuberant price that they want for books like this in Australia (I'll have to possibly look at an off shore purchase). It looks like its not just a book on technical data and clinical dissection of Battles. I like to read the personal side of the Battles. History is so compelling.

Thanks Randy and Bill for Review and Link.

PS Have to wait now cause I just noticed the Aussie Dollar has nose dived again against the Greenback. Bloody Yanks (said tongue in cheek and no disrespect intended)
