Reviews

A plethora of great photos of soldiers and vehicles are combined with superb art by Peter Dennis to illustrate the Australians' organizational evolution, uniforms, insignia and equipment in this absorbing 48-page paperback. - Toy Soldier & Model Figure Magazine It's good book on the Australian Army since Vietnam. As much detail as you could fit in a standard Osprey book covering 40 years. You'll find yourself making good use of the helpful abbreviations and acronyms table at the start of the book. I found the soldier pictures to very informative. - Armorama
