I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in either of these military units or who simply want to learn more about one of the lesser-known theaters of action in World War Two.
IPMS / USA
The Osprey Combat series takes two famous opponents and delves into what made them unique soldiers, comparing their training, organization, and weaponry. The book then showcases these troops with three of their common battles, showing how they did in battle against each other. The book concludes with an evaluation of each group's strengths and weaknesses and a frank look at their performance in battle. It is a winning formula, and it works here, giving the reader an enjoyable and readable book.
