A good big basic reference chock full of entries ( over 2000 vehicles and their variants ). Condition was as described, "good"- somewhat worn but fully serviceable. And it arrived yesterday the 19 of Sept well ahead of est. shipping. Yay.
Highly recommended to anyone fascinated with the different types of tanks or fighting vehicles. I had just seen a small clip on U.S. tanks, prior to WWII or 1942 and was curious what we were using for training tanks. This gives you very valuable information of each nationalities tanks and when they were in use.
Bought this as a gift. It's thick and loaded with color illustrations of what seems like every armored vehicle built from 1905 through 2009. Very well-done.
