A very enjoyable read, especially to sci-fi "technophiles"!
And im a little disappointed to be honest. Dont get me wrong,there is lots of information on the organisation of the corps,the gear used etc,but its much more text-rich than image-rich. There is almost zero schematics,aside the UD40 dropship,most of the iconic gear from the movies is unexplored in favor of less known equipment such as missiles and radar systems. A few sparse images here and there illustrate quickly the given topic but are only there to block out the walls of text contained within.
If you're looking for detailed information,this book is both good and bad. Its a strange combination of in-depth information and a lack of detail (like mentioned) on the things that made the Colonial Marines stand out. For a few quick examples,the pulse rifle and the smart gun are treated to two quick diagrams (no exploded views,just a lineart picture) and a page of text each,while complicated radar systems of the dropship get a 3 to 5 page covering. The iconic APC is glanced over in a page or two as well. Personally, its a lack of imagery and actual description of the important gear used in the films that brings points down on this book.
Otherwise,i'd still recommend it to anyone looking for more insight into the heart of the USCM,just dont expect to know more than you already do. :(
