This book is a halfway attempt between a standard non-fiction book and an Osprey catalogue. It therefore serves neither both categories and falls short of its intention. In my view it may function as a short reference book which deals with a number of topics but if you're looking for a detailed account, either look on or go for a full Osprey account.
The general overview parts were ok. I personally didnt care much for the breakdowns on the uniforms and unit organization sections. There were however many photos that I had not seen before this book and that I quite enjoyed. The pictures I had not seen before outnumbered the ones I had and thats always a good thing in my opinion.
