Review quote

""Armies of the United States"is more than just a book of army lists, far more. Almost every page features several full-color photographs of some excellent WWII miniatures -- figures, armament, vehicles, tanks, etc. are all here. There are also several excellent dioramas and vignettes which give the gamers some interesting 'eye candy' to help them with setting up their own gaming tables. Author Massimo Torriani and a team of gamers, painters, historians, researchers, playtesters, and other support staff have collaborated in creating a book that has much wider appeal than just the folks who use the Bolt Action rules. General WWII gamers will appreciate the army lists and composition and the background information on the equipment, artillery, tanks, and vehicles. WWII buffs will find much of value in here as well."- Scott L. Mingus, CHARGE!
