“This book documents the origins of acronyms, expressions and phrases that formed the unofficial, colloquial language of barracks and battlefields before making their way into boardrooms and bedrooms. To parrot just a few of the words from this book, if you want to put a smile on your face while learning something about military history and the evolution of language, don't be a 'meathead.' Just 'get on the ball' and buy a copy of this book.” ―Toy Soldier & Model magazine

A comprehensive collection of slang terms used during WWII. There's a section for different branches of the U.S. military (except the U.S. Army, which is featured in FUBAR), the British services, and even a German section. Very enjoyable and put together well. Recommended for history readers, especially ones interested in military history.
