John Norris is a freelance military historian who writes regular monthly columns for several specialist titles, ranging from vehicle profiles to re-enactment events. He has written well over a dozen books on various military historical subjects, most recently Fix Bayonets! (2014) and Mortars of WWII (2015), both published by Pen & Sword.
"After reading the entire book, I came to a realisation that this
lovely work by Mr. Norris is not just a simple collection of
photographs and images. It is a hallowed testament to the eternal
human aspiration to leave a mark of his own in this world before
vanishing into the flames of war. It is a book that reminds us that
soldiers are not killing machines who mercilessly slew their
enemies on the battlefield but human beings with a heart and a
soul"-- "Kunwon Saw"
"An interesting topic and one which modellers, military historians, re-enactors and military vehicle restorers will find interesting."-- "Military Model Scene"
"Entertainment for the casual reader and a valuable reference for vehicle restorers and modelers alike. All colour photos."-- "FineScale Modeler" (5/1/2017 12:00:00 AM)
"This book will be very interesting to modelers that are looking for some cool markings to put on their vehicles. It will hold interest for military historians and enthusiasts too."-- "AMPS Indianapolis"
A detailed study of the subject.-- "WWII History"
