The choice of uniforms is very appealing, but the photographs don't show the colors of the uniforms very well. Partialy this is due to all of the models being photographed against a bright red background ( probably as some kind of association with the chosen subject), partialy this is due to the lighting leaving something to be desired. This is a real shame, because otherwise the book would have been first rate!
The book does offer some uniforms I have never seen anywhere else before, such as the late war camouflage uniform.
If you would, for example combine this book with the book from Osprey Publishing on the same subject, you would have a good combination to start with.

I think this book does a great job of trying to show a wide variety of uniforms in a very short book. If you're looking for something specific, however, this is probably not the book for you. The models do a decent job of varying poses that you might see during a lull in the fighting. There are only front-facing shots (which is disappointing, but not unexpected). In the back of the book, their are a couple of pages of assorted artifacts, accessories, and insignia.
In summary- worth having for interested parties, but don't overpay!
