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.

Military Modelling, Robin Buckland
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.
