REVIEWS

...While most reference books tend to focus on a specific vehicle type, this book examines a wide collection of vehicles used in the liberation of Europe. Each vehicle has at least one photo, with some of the more popular vehicles getting several pages worth of photo documentation. All of these are current restored vehicles found in various military vehicle societies, and the level of restoration is generally quite good. The added benefit from this is that the photos are quite clear and will be of great use for modelers.

"...displays these principal vehicles and includes precise technical details, with plenty of photographs for historians and vehicle modelers to peruse."
Model Retailer July 2007

"...great photos of impeccably restored vehicles dominate the pages while the text, though profuse, is tight and precise. Francois has put together a 'must' for the modeler!...highly recommended and could stand as a basic overall reference book on Allied wheeled and half-tracked vehicles."
