Grunt features some fantastic pieces from the author's own collection, making it an ideal reference book. A4 in size and hardback it does not come cheap, but then again few good collector's book ever do. Its substantial size and bulk seems to justify its price, as its packed from cover to cover with 450 pages and over 3000 photos of uniforms, equipment, headgear and weapons, not to forget period imagery. The book quite literally covers a broad spectrum of the US military equipment used in 'Nam', but also goes into minor detail, often overlooked, including patch ID, wash-kit inventory and even cigarettes.

This superb book will appeal to military historians, researchers of the SS, and militaria collectors and dealers. It is hard to stress the quality of this tome and its usefulness. I can see this volume becoming a standard reference work for collectors and militaria dealers alike. In short, it is a wonderful work and it is of a high standard as expected from this author.
