Review:

“Offering 650 color illustrations total, plus a few photos, this visual reference presents chronological entries on military uniforms worn in specific conflicts around the world, from the 18th century through the present conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Each entry's high-quality, photorealistic illustrations are accompanied by descriptions and info on country, date, and theater of the war. Entries focus mostly on uniforms, but some weapons and equipment are illustrated. The book includes a brief introduction on the origins of military uniforms and their development through history, plus a glossary.” (Book News, Inc.)

“...attractive volume....those interested in the uniforms of military personnel from around the world, especially those who served during the period from World War II to the present, will find much to enjoy within its pages (The Journal of America’s Military Past)

"...highly recommended for military hobbyists and as a reference source to anyone interested in the history of the uniform." (Mataka.org)

“Accompanied by a timeline the illustrations spare no detail to when it comes representing military uniforms along with weapons, insignia and transports supported by extensive text descriptions and historical context. It’s the best book of its kind that I’ve ever seen. If you’re looking for a great book on military uniforms this one will ‘suit’ you just fine.” (Boyce McClain’s Collectors’ Corner)
