Maps, photographs and first-rate artwork by Adam Hook illustrate the writer's insightful narrative. - Toy Soldier Model Figure This is a wonderful historical reference of some critical but lesser know battles to many. Lavishly illustrated with maps, pictures and illustrations, it is a very interesting read. From a modelers perspective, the book has great reference drawings for uniforms and equipment from this time period. Highly recommended to all interested in the history or soldiers of the area. - IMPS / USA Reviews
