TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 5 December 2012
The book is more a discourse on the use and developing missions of special operations patrol vehicles than a guide covering specific vehicles in any level of detail. Starting with the beginnings of the concept in the Desert War in WW2, the author then sweeps over Somalia and the Gulf War to devote the majority of the book to Afghanistan and Iraq.

The book certainly has a wealth of pictorial material, much of which has been previously unpublished - a definite bonus. The pictures are captioned, and some basic information on the developments is available (as long as you do not expect vehicle profiles, technical data, descriptions...).

The focus is definitely more on the developing mission profile and the type of vehicle various special forces have used over time, rather than on the vehicles themselves. A different organization of the book, or a section with separated vehicle descriptions would certainly make it a better reference but even so, it is probably a worthwhile purchase at the price.

Good book, some good photos and info, More pic's for reference purposes would not have gone amiss but overall more than happy with purchase.
