"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

YA-- A book that has intricate drawings and detailed explanations of all facets of military life--clothing, utensils, medicine, food, weapons, shelter, etc. The drawings and lettering have strong visual appeal. The level of detail is exemplified by huts, constructed differently for officers and soldiers; by canteens--not one, but eight--each drawn differently. Serious students will find useful the list of locations of artifacts illustrated here. For homework or browsing pleasure, this is a title that will be enjoyed repeatedly by all ages. It's almost as good as a visit to a museum exhibit.

The b&w drawings are great - they cover things from uniforms (even how to make a standard hunting shirt with pattern information) to buttons to weapons. It is a great book to have near by when you are reading through a detailed history that may make reference to a military item that you don't know. For the price a great investment.
An excellant refurence on his cloths and equipment as well as his life in service. Much better thant the book produced by Osprey.
