Editorial Reviews

Review

"Armies of the United Statesis 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! Civil War Wargaming

"This book contains all of the background, rules and Army List information needed to field a U.S. Army in the Bolt Action game. It features details of organization and equipment covering American forces from the beginning of their development in World War II. The book allows players to choose from dozens of different troop types, including Sherman tanks, Marine raiders and paratroopers."
- Model Retailer (May 2013)

"lavishly illustrated with color illustrations and fantastic photos of military miniatures. It is designed to equip wargamers to choose from dozens of troop types to campaign in any theater of the war. Everything from Army infantry and paratrooper to Marine raiders, artillery and Sherman tanks are detailed." --Toy Soldier & Model Figure Magazine

"...provides a fine suplpement to Bolt Action for players of the war game and provides all the information needed on the military forces of the US. Players can choose from different troop types, from tanks to Marine raiders, and can build a US force to fight in virtually any war scenario using this all-encompassing guide. Army lists and theater selectors accompany color photos, detailed rules, and team specifics, making this a powerful wargamer's reference."
--The Midwest Book Review (April 2013)

About the Author

Warlord Games is one of the foremost producers of historical miniatures in England. Their line of 28mm plastic wargaming figures is considered the industry gold standard and Bolt Action is the first ruleset to formally utilize those soldiers for a Warlord-branded wargame.

I am a huge fan of this game system, and in Osprey books. It is not really a dig on this item, but a compliment to the value of the core rules. You do NOT really need this to play an American Platoon like you would in other game systems. The core rules allow you to field an American team just fine. The art is good, and the pictures are nice, but there is not much gaming "meat" in this book. I do however love the small call outs sprinkled through the book with small histories of American Heros, or trivial facts about their gear. If your a fan of the game, and want some very specific army lists, then get the book. If you are a casual gamer, or history buff, you can probably skip this one.

A great addition to the core rulebook, includes historically appropriate army lists to recreate battles at specific points in the war. A must have for anyone who enhoys the game and has an American army.

This is a great supplement for Bolt action. Cover a majority of the US theater for creating list for Africa, Italy and Northen Europe, it only brefily covers list for Pacific.

It is put togater well, the art work is above par.

What it is lacking:
Not enough on the Pacific theater, Not mention of US ARMY or other Forces in the pacific (Seabee's, Raiders, ect)

Hobby/paint guide all of the Bolt action forces book are lacking in this.

Over all the book provides what you need to paly in a few theaters.

Pretty much everything I wrote about the Imperial Japan supplement is the same here. Good game, weak simulation. I will try TFL Chain of Command rules next.
