Great, much better than Osprey Jul 18, 2006
Great source of pictures of mamelukes for those interested. As always, this series always outshines the Osprey books in my opinion. More pictures, more concise text.
Superb info (and NOT only one side...) Apr 15, 2006
I usually do not write reviews, this is my second one, but I am enraged to see coments like "only one side"... are you blind?

THIS BOOK IS NOTHING SHORT OF EXTRAORDINARY AND YOU MUST COMPARE WITH THE OLD MAA OSPREY N? 83 TO SEE THE BIG! DIFFERENCE IN AMOUNT OF DETAIL...
C'mon do not deride books (scarce as they are) with LIES!
Only one side Mar 19, 2006
The books in this series are great, as far as they go. The problem is that they only show one side of the uniform. For painting miniatures, reinactors, and wargaming it is necessary to veiw both sides of the uniforms! The books are only half done! If, the books showed both sides of the uniforms and in the same pose, I would rate the series a five stars. But because the job is only half done, I rate them 2.5. I hope the publisher receives this feed back so this error will be corrected because the series is excellent, as far as it goes. It just needs the other side!
