Provides information on twenty-five top land armies covering such topics as weapons and equipment, combat units, current alliances, and peacekeeping commitments.
This is a good high-level overview of *ground* (land-based) fighting forces and special forces. Air and naval forces aren't covered.
The overview of special forces is very good and highly topical and really makes this a worthwhile book, despite it's other problems.
This book almost rates 5-stars except the charts are confusing and some key features are missing. There is no glossary and key terms and concepts aren't defined. If you don't know the difference between a division, a brigade, a regiment, battalion or company, you will need to look elsewhere for that information.
I can't spend enough time repeating how the charts are difficult to understand. After careful reading and re-reading, I still don't know if I am interpretting the charts correctly. This is a serious problem that really hurts the value of what could otherwise be a unique and useful book.
I didn't find the charts hard to read. In fact, they were pretty easy for me to understand. The only thing that I didn't like about some charts were that they were vague when it came to Iraq, Russia, China, and a few other countries, but that's understandable. One has to be VERY familiar with foreign equipment or have a good reference book such as "The Encyclopedia of Tanks and Armored Fighting Vehicles: The Comprehensive Guide to over 900 Armored Fighting Vehicles from 1915 to the Present Day" by Chistopher F. Foss close at hand to identify most pieces of equipment listed. Also, they tend to give local designations (esp. in the case of Spain) instead of the better-known international designations. About the only other complaint that I have is that they leave out countries such as Cuba, Poland, Romania, Vietnam, Singapore, the Netherlands, and 90% of the Balkan states, while including Canada, Australia, and other small armies. Overall, I gave this book a 4 and would highly recommend it to your any military enthusiast/analyst.
