I am involved in building an armed compliment of personnel. I purchased a number of books to assist in promoting, enhancing, expanding personnel with no former combat experience or insight. This was one such book.
It does a very good job at supplying basic information in a very easy to read format. Plenty of real world pictures assist the reader throughout. It covers areas such as weaponry, tactics, support, etc.
Artwork throughout assists the reader in trying to understand what is being described.
This book would be ideal to give my son who just entered the military. It gives a very good introduction - but that is it. Other books in print supply more in depth insight into tactics et al.
The authors have achieved their purpose, but keep in mind it is simply an introduction that can be obtained without purchasing - sorry.
