Good content, poorly organised,
This review is from: World War II Infantry Tactics : Squad and Platoon (Elite): Vol. 1 (Paperback)
Along with its companion book (World War II Infantry Tactics: Company and Battalion) overall an enyoyable and informative read for anyone interested in WWII infantry tactics.
This is an area poorly covered by literature, and though there is a reasonable volume of good material published on the internet it is fragmentory. These books go some way to compiling and interpreting many disperate sources. The books are well written, however they are let down by being poorly organised and laid out and could have been more rounded in the relative coverage of different issues.
I finished the books with the distinct impression that coverage depended more on the author's predilictions and the material readily available than on much of an attempt at balance and completeness.
