Reviews

"This edition in Osprey's 'Campaign' series is a great read. The description of the battles is superbly done and tells a great series of tales without breaking into the sort of hyperbole that was so common in post-war accounts of these events. When one adds in the superb choice of period photos as well as some great artwork, you have a book that is a real winner. Most highly recommended." --Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (July 2013) "Another informative and decidedly recommended Osprey title." --Rachel E. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com (July 2013)
