Thank you Fred. I appreciate the kind comment. It is a really nice book of a lesser discussed subject and I really enjoyed reviewing it.

Thanks,
Randy

Hey Randy, best book review I ever saw, really. Has my interest up that I will have to add this one to my library. Any more reviews like that and the publisher will have to send you a check each month. Building dio/vign in reality and as accurate as possible is a passion with me. I had seen a pic of Russian troopers with what appeared to be inflated inner tubes crossing a water area with reeds but the pic here shows much more. Now that the info is available I see a new idea taking shape in my head already. Great review once again. bob d.

Thank you Bob!! Wow.....talk about making a guy's head swell!!!! I really appreciate the kind comments in regards to my review. Feedback like that makes me want to keep reviewing books for the site. I also really appreciate the fact that my review was able to help you and I am sure that Osprey Publishing would be glad to know that my review makes you want to purchase the book!!

I really like the Russian with the floatation suit as well. He would make a cool scratch-build for a vignette.

Thank you again,
Randy
