While many of his competitors merely caption (often carelessly) the author gives interesting facts to augment the text. The reviewer learnt that many of the Thomson Guns issued to the Home Guard were originally intended for the French Army . Obscure bits of kit such as Conundrum even enter the book.
The book is laid out in date order from the start of the war until VE day . There are ten chapters with a fairly thin bibliography and index. Illustrations are to a high standard and relevant, if there is any doubt as to unit identities and the like this is clearly highlighted.
Pen & Sword have brought a useful and entertaining book to the market and no doubt it will sell particularly well in Kent. The book runs to 134 pages with a few headed pages for notes at the rear. Cover price is £14.99 ,Kindle £10.79 and copies on Amazon from £7.99
