This new addition to the Images of War series should be popular with modellers who like modern wheeled armoured vehicles used by US Armed Forces. As something of a fan of wheeled AFV's, there are some excellent references in here for modellers. Since WW2 the US Military have been through phases of favouring and equally not favouring the use of wheeled vehicles.. In recent years they have very much been back at the forefront of new types entering service.

A superb pictorial history of the Irish Guards which begins with the regiment's formation in 1900 and brings the reader right up to the present day. I would have liked to have seen sources cited on more of the illustrations and photos, and it is unfortunate that the date of the regiment's first presentation of the colours is given as May 2002 rather than May 1902. However, these are minor quibbles and there is much to recommend this book, including useful appendices that detail everything over the years from gallantry awards and the evolving Colours to names of colonels and senior NCOs. This will be a very distracting coffee-table book as well as a quick and easy source of reference. I've only just started dipping into my copy but it's going to sit very comfortably with my other Guards regimental histories and I know it's going to be useful. Grenadiers, Coldstreams and Scots, take note.
