Though the textual information is very good, the reprinted artwork is disappointing. Osprey have been using digital print on demand to keep older titles in print. That these books are still available, is excellent. The art in these reproductions, though, especially the colour plates, is inferior. The plates are slightly blurry or grainy and the colours appear flat and drab. The flaws in the art of these digital print on demand books are glaring when one compares them with the properly printed editions.
From reading customer feedback in the forums on the Osprey website, it is clear that they know of this issue. But they do not acknowledge there is a problem, nor do they feel that the reduction in the quality of the colour plates warrants a drop in price. I feel, however, that Osprey must improve its colour quality in its digital imaging and printing processes or reconsider the price of these repints.
It is one of the volumes in the "Warriors" series and covers the military aspect of a specific culture.
It gives a good insigth on the subject with good illustrations, black and white photographs and drawings.
A good introduction to the subject matter made all the more exciting by Angus McBride illustrations.
