Osprey just seem to be "churning" these books out just recently, and the quality of them stays very high.......good review Mike!

Mike, I thought you did a brilliant job on the review, and thankyou for taking the time to write it. It saddens me a little that out of all the people who read your review, only one saw fit to comment or thankyou.

Vinnie,
No problem, buddy. The important thing is I hope someone gleaned enough inspiration to look into buying this book when it becomes available. It really is a terrific book and well worth the money!

And that's what i'm doing now, Mike, thank you for the review.
The treads at the Armor Forum are disappearing so quick from the first page, that it is difficult to catch all posts.

The review is indeed very helpful and surely helps making the buy decision.

Cheers

Hi Mike,

Very well done. Glad to see it reviewed--I just started a review of the book for the site and decided to see if anyone has beaten me to it. Now I can concentrate on the airplane books.

Did you scan or just photograph the pages of the book?

Ordered the book over a month and a half ago and finally received it today.

First, thanks to Mike for the review. After reading it I was confident that this would be a good buy.

Now I can say that this is not only a good book, this is a great book I've been out of the hobby for the last 25 years or so and I'm sure this book will help me tremendously to bring my skills up to today standard :-)

Well written review and sounds like a good book for a Stug lover like me with some useful tips from the author.
Quite a few people have perused your work and in the way of the internet not bothered to acknowledge the time you contributed to bring this info to us, but heres another bouquet from me!
