This book covers the steam trains used during World War II. The train was am very important tool during the war to move equipment, men, supplies critical to the war efforts on all sides bit Axis and Allied. The book shows the evolution of the different most popular trains used by Germany, Britain, and America.

The book goes into incredible detail on the steam engines including where they were used. Also, it shows where examples are currently persevered. The images are a great reference for anyone interested trains.

The chapter three about the development of the British steam engines was my personal favorite and the images are awesome.

At the back of the book is a great series of tables with all the train reference numbers and details which a lot of information very simply laid out.

The book itself was a little bit on the small size (format) for my liking but the contents make up for this minor fault. The book also has a bookmark attached which is a nice feature.

Thanks go to Casemate Publishing for providing this book to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them
