This edition of the original full-size 9"x12" book " The Armed Forces of World War II" , printed in 1990, is practically a half-baked attempt at bringing back this classic. I just purchased it as a smaller handy reference to give my personal original copy a break from heavy usage. What I found was astonishing when comparing both books: 1)In the chapter covering the Soviet Union,there were illustrations missing; in fact, the book cover (here we go again!) is misleading as it shows a Soviet general (on the front cover) and an NKVD officer with a PPsh-41 submachine gun (in the back cover). Yet, these figures are nowhere to be found in the text. In addition, there are many other examples of Soviet military staff, officers and soldiers (including one of a Soviet female sniper and a number of b/w photos) missing as well which the original clearly illustrates in its contents. Also missing were the plates demonstrating the insignias, chevrons, symbols, etc. of the Red Army. 2) Another major flaw was the omission of entire chapters on Eastern European Axis powers (again, included in the original 1990 edition)involving Slovakia, Rumania and Bulgaria. I know for certain Mr. Andrew Mollo would have never approved as clearly, this book appears to have been reprinted in an awful hurry for the sake of profit! Avoid this book and purchase the original 1990 version;it's a full-size large book with at least 300 pages +. You WILL get the FULL SCOPE on this one! TRUST ME!!

20th Century military history buffs and miilitary miniaturists: if you can find a copy of this book, get it! The MacGregor illustrations are superb and there's enough info to make it useful. One of the pluses in this book is that it has the rank insignia for most armies. That is a big help in understanding the organization and chain of command. Great for military miniaturists, too, because you have most of the World War II armies' insignia in one place. Even if you have one of the other books containing most of these images, the textual information and the insignia alone make this one worth having as a handy reference.

As a 20th Century US Army veteran, I would like to see Andrew Mollo do a similar book covering the Cold War Era during which I served.

Great book! I love how it shows the ranks of the various military's even those who are considered more obscure participants in the war. I however was disappointed, by the lack of information about the SS. I believe there are only two examples of them in the entire book. If it had not been for this, this book would have received five stars form me.

This is the DEFINITIVE reference book on the uniforms of WWII. Mollo carefully explains his terms and illustrates them in this handy, well-organized work. Individual illustrations of patches, epaulets and weapons are complemented by contemporary, hand-colored photographs of a wide variety of uniforms. Excellent!
