REVIEWS
-

"there are some impressive photographs, all have been chosen to tell the story, not just to entertain.  Mr Green’s text describes the history and service of the Abrams in a readable and accessible style. The book is neither anoracky at one end of the scale or too generic at the other. I think I commented that one of his last books on tanks may have been out of place in the Images of War range and could have been an expanded and glossier history in it’s own right. I may have missed the point. Having a book of this quality in this range makes it affordable on one level and it adds a strong degree of credibility to the series on the other."

"A good primer for the Abrams, the photos are well chosen and whilst some of the earlier images have been seen in previous publications, many of the more recent ones have not."
