2.0 out of 5 stars Cicero, 23 Dec. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coronel and Falklands 1914: Duel in the South Atlantic (Campaign) (Paperback)
A realy apreciated addition to the libery of any expert on the theme. But it`s the artwork accompaniing a well ballanced, thoroughly researched text that is realy stunning: Sheer catastrophy! Thoroughly out of shape and perspective. You realy learn to highly apreciate contemporary German propaganda illustrators. They at least knew how a ship rides in a sea. The best adjective I can find for the artwork in this volumne is "hillarious". The historical value of the artwork is beyond pronounciation as simply nonexistant. This shall not detract us from the work of the author, which is realy recommendable. It`s the artwork accompaniing his work which strikes us like hit in his face absolutly undeserved. I collect Osprey releases since 1974 and can not but wonder how the editor could alowe a research to be devalueated in that way. I hope this is not what we are supposed to expect in the future, because it will only lead to the ban of a much apreciated series of fast to be read books from one of the most comprehensive liberies on military history.

Cicero, the readon 15 of 18 people do not appreciate your review is because you say the authors work is 'commendable' but spend all the rest of your comment complaining about the drawings/ illustrations, on the strength of which you give just two stars.

Actually the book may only be worth two stars but, if so, that could be because the authors conclusions are actually not that commendable after all (Please see by comment on William Thomas's review of this book).
