Military Book Reviews by Nigel Thomas

  • I buy a lot of books on military subjects, especially military uniforms, orders of battle, biographies of general officers and general military history. I will post here short reviews of books which I have bought. I will recommend buying or not, and where to buy.
  • Publishers are welcome to send in review-copies to me, but I reserve the right to be brutally honest with my review.
