This terrific book celebrates the most important innovation in the history of mankind - the railways, which took over as the main means of transport all over the world from the beginning of the Victorian era. And the impact it had was influential almost immediately in the various conflicts, although it really came into its own in the early years of the first World War. Amazing photos, an amazing slice of social history combine to make this a genuine enthusiast's delight. * Books Monthly *
This rather excellent publication covers the use of railways from its inception for military purposes...Both armoured trains and rail artillery receive coverage, with some interesting photos. This book is worth the price for the artwork alone. * Scale Military Modelling International Magazine *
As modellers, we have arguably become accustomed to concentrating on ever finer details, perhaps at the expense of considering the broader picture: this book certainly counters that tendence and puts railways in a wider context. * Continental Modeller *
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a fine addition to my collection and has shone a spotlight into a crucial aspect of military history that I should have paid better attention to in the past. * Classic Military Vehicle Magazine *
This is an authoritative work, engagingly written, attractively designed, and given its nice price, easily recommendable as the go-to work in its field. * The Lexington Quarterly *
