What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Cybermodeler Online, October 2007

“If you're looking for a good overview reference on the subject, this is the title you've been waiting for. Definitely recommended!”

Internet Modeler, November 2007

“Michael Green and James D. Brown have created another 128 page soft-bound book for their At-War series that contains excellent color photographs and illustrations that emphasize the use and history of the Bradley infantry fighting vehicle. Practically every page has at least one color or black and white photograph while others have more. Talk about a photo-reference guide these books are it. There are excerpts from personnel who were crewmen on various vehicles documented in this book. The At-War series of books are written in a chronological format for each subject matter covered from background development to present or end of production. Each book has an excellent index to help you locate specific subject matter.”

International Plastic Modelers Society, December 2007

“Zenith Publishing has a series of books styled ‘At War.’ Currently there are titles covering the M-1 Abrams and the HMMWV and now the M2/M3 Bradley. If you're expecting a short evening of light reading and looking at the pictures, you're underestimating the depth of coverage this book provides. The writing is moderately technical, as befits a serious study of a modern vehicle. The pictures are gems, with good captioning to explain what's being shown. So prepare to do some serious reading. Then look at all those gorgeous, well lit, nicely composed, detail oriented, and interesting pictures.
 
“This is a useful book which taught me a lot about the Bradley and its deployment in Iraq. It's not one you pick up and leaf through, it has to be read. The data is in there, you have to dig it out. But once you've read it once, you'll find a wealth of information which you can use on your Bradley model.
“Highly Recommended. No AMS sufferer, or modern armor enthusiast, who is contemplating the construction of a Bradley should pass this book up. It's reasonably priced, and you get a lot of gee-whiz background and historical perspective that you probably won't find in the picture books.”
