M-113 in the 1990s (Part 1)

This new book in Concord's ARMOR AT WAR MINI SERIES begins with an overview of the M113, including a list of abbreviations pertinent to the M133 series of vehicles. Next is a Technical Data Sheet comparing the M113, A1, A2, and A3.
The meat of this book is color pictures (loads of them) of M113ís and variations (eg. M577ís, M1015ís, M548ís) most in the field. There are pictures from exercises as well as deployed vehicles. There are a few interior shots included as well.
Also in the book is a 2-page fold out of a 1:35 scale, 4 view line drawing of an M113.
There are also 4 color profiles through out the book.
The pictures are grouped by country: United States, Canada, Germany, Denmark, and Norway.
This is an outstanding source of pictures for camouflage, weathering, and stowage information.
I ordered mine for Missionmodels.com and the price was 11.98 USD.
I canít wait for part 2 and beyond.

in conclusion

This is a must have for m113 lovers.
