REVIEWS

An excellent reference book for modellers as well as being a good read. Paul Middleton
Scale Military Modelller Magazine

This is the first of this series I've had the pleasure of reading and there is some great material here for the armor modeler and historian alike.
Cybermodeler Online

Highly recommended to model makers and those interested in the fighting in Italy, this book will undoubtedly prove to be as popular as the books in the rest of the series.
Tankette

Throughout the book it is heavily illustrated with archive photos that illustrate each stage of the story, and all are well captioned, with a good guide to the mix of camouflage schemes and unit markings to be found... For those interested in the war in the Italian theatre, this is a good addition to this series, giving good guidance on the colours and the unit markings to be found there at the time.
