“In this book the author tells the story of these turbulent times and the units, Army, Navy and Marine, that took part in the various operations. A good portion of the book concentrates on the Boxer Rebellion as that was the major military event of this period, though there were other smaller conflicts. Men-at-Arms is basically a book on uniforms and the superlative illustrations of Mike Chappell show the various uniforms and equipment of the men of this period… The book also includes a number of quite rare photographs that should prove to be quite interesting to the enthusiast… In all, one of Osprey’s most interesting titles and one that I know you will enjoy reading as much as did I.” -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (July 2009)

“This book is a good source of information on US uniforms in Asia and Pacific. The color plates are by Mike Chappell, who in my opinion is one of the best military illustrators around today. There is a good collection of contemporary photos relating to all the elements of the US forces covered. The book also contains three still photos from “modern” feature films made about the historic events encompassed by the text.” -John Burt, Toy Soldier and Model Figure
