"This latest in this series covers the armoured vehicles used in the advance to and fighting for Cassino. This involved American, British, Canadian, French, New Zealand and Polish units at different stages and in different combinations. To further complicate who had what and where, tanks were passed between units and sometimes operated still in their original markings! ... With so much variety of types and colour schemes, this is a great choice for modellers as well as those interested in armoured warfare."

- Peter Brown, Military Modelling

"This is the first of this series I've had the pleasure of reading and there is some great material here for the armor modeler and historian alike. With the emphasis on colors used on these vehicles, it might be helpful to some readers to know which 'olive drab' was typically found on the US vehicles at that time as well as the corresponding British Army colors applied to the Commonwealth vehicles. Even a table with hobby paint equivalents would be useful. While there are other titles out there with that information, such information would make color reference titles such as this more helpful to the modeler all under one cover."

- Michael Benolkin, Cybermodeler Online

this is a good addition to this series, giving good guidance on the colors and the unit markings to be found there at the time

- Military Modeling

An excellent reference book for modelers as well as being a good read.”
