"Like other titles in this series, rare photographs and vivid illustrations add value to this book, and I imagine these resources can be extremely useful to modelers. This book definitely is a great starting point for me to start learning more about the Hungarian Army and how its men played a role in the European War." --C. Peter Chan, World War II Database (December 11, 2008) "What you will find in these pages are superb descriptions of these units/dress along with some unique photographs taken of some of the soldiers in their uniforms. This is further enhanced by the outstanding illustrations of Darko Pavlovic which add some real color to these old greyscale images from the distant past. A book that rightly belongs on the shelf of any WWII enthusiast and one that provides a bit more insight into one of the more important Axis allies.Highly recommended." --Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (October 2008) "The 'Men-at Arms' series is as much about the units and uniforms/equipment of these soldiers as it is about the conflict itself. That being the case, this particular edition covers just those aspects of the Royal Hungarian Army ... Highly recommended." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (October 2008) "The combination of history, uniforms, and unit data all in one volume makes this a choice title to pick uop for all WW2 history buffs." --Military Miniatures in Review "If you ever wanted to know everything about the Hungarian Army during World War II, read this book." --Jeff Grim, collectedmiscellany.com (October 2008)
