While this is new series for Osprey you can see that it relies heavily on platform established by their campaign series. It's quite broad and pretty shallow so don't expect detailed analysis of campaign. It's a good overall view that tries to cover main points from both sides, naturally heavily tilted toward US side. The main issue for me was tha tit kept saying "this was where US messed up but did right in Linebacker and/or Desert Storm". Stick to the subject if you please.....

So pretty standar
