The author has penned a concise yet thorough and interesting unit history. It is underpinned by bountiful black and white photos as well as color illustrations that capture details of the troops' clothing and gear. This book should appeal to anyone interested in WWII history. It would also be a gold mine for hobbyists hunting for visual inspirations for dioramas or model figure projects.
Leo Winston, Toy Soldier & Model Figure (December 2012)
...describes and illustrates the organization, special clothing and equipment, and evolution of the light infantry concept in general and the 10th Mountain Division in particular, offering a blend of rare military photos with detailed color focus on their uniforms and equipment. The result is a lively blend of history and technical survey in a top pick for any World War II collection.
