I bought the book for the title sack, "Learn how to draw military." Sadly the book only shows drawn pictures of military aircraft and a few tanks and does not explain how to draw them. There are no set up techniques, steps, or anything. There are only pre-drawn pictures, which makes this book good only for references. However, I was impressed with the large number of military units covered. The book covers aircraft from the Second World War to the present and even lists some technical facts about the airplanes, helicopters, and jets. Like how much horsepower a P-51 Mustang can max out, or how many models of Japanese Zero's there were by the war's end. Even the companies who manufactured the engines for the planes are listed. All in all if you like drawing military this book will make a wonderful reference source, however if you are trying to learn how to draw military vehicles look for a different book.
