"Steven J. Zaloga is well known to most readers of military histories in general and armor in particular. His fluid writing style allows the reader to follow along with the events of the time and produces a most enjoyable reading experience. This is further enhanced by the excellent illustrations of Peter Dennis and a well chosen group of period photographs... I've read quite a few books in this series and to me, this is one of the best. It reads well...and holds one's interest from the first to the last page. An excellent book that I know you will enjoy and one that I highly recommend." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com "Remagen 1945 recounts the capture of the bridge in the context of the Allied push to the Rhine and the subsequent encirclement of the Ruhr Pocket. In addition to the well-written text, there are excellent photographs, tables of organization, chronology, color maps, and three-dimensional bird's-eye views. Of particular interest to readers of this magazine are the many fine photographs of armored vehicles and artillery pieces and the emphasis on armored operations." --Doug Bister, Military Trader Magazine "In all this is a reference book that is a worthwhile addition to any reference library. Recommended." --Henk Meerdink, Armorama (September 2006) "If there is a 'Golden Age' currently in effect within our hobby, it is not limited to model kits. We are also seeing some of the best work being offered by some of the best authors, artists and publishers ever seen. This book is clearly one more reason why we are indeed in the 'Golden Age.'" --Frank De Sisto, missing-lynx.com "[One of many] outstanding coverages in-depth military holdings will welcome." --The Bookwatch
