An absolutely fantastic gift for anyone who has an interest in military history. Please understand it is a dictionary and reference book. But it is so thick with 1,350 pages. It is so comprehensive that any one who is interested will spend time just flicking from one page to the other reading up on interesting pieces of history. Great value at this price. Highly recommended.
