First off, let me convey that this is the first time I have purchased a book on military uniforms, so my review will be more of a brief description since Amazon has not posted any info on this book. All text written in this book, is written in French. This is wouldn't be too much of a problem if I understood french, and since the majority of the book is made of pictures, but Amazon "should" have posted info on this, and it would be nice to actually understand the descriptions. But let me remind you again, this book doesn't contain vast amounts of text in the first place. The illustrations are all well done as well. If I understood French, this book would most likly recieve 5 stars. But, because of the french text, and Amazon not posting info on this, the book becomes nothing more then a very nice picture book if you do not understand the french language.
