    Poor Quality Binding

    I bought this book as a gift for a military history buff, but sadly the original AND the replacement copy were so poorly bound that they fell apart in my hands as soon as the books were opened. I have since come to find that this seems to be a problem with this book. It is a shame better quality materials weren't used because it seems like an interesting read. Hopefully a hardbound, or better quality edition will be published in the future, but for now - unfortunately - I have to recommend to avoid this one.
