 About the Book 

This book is a fascinating and revealing look at the vehicles used by ISAF forces in Afghanistan. The author is a serving army officer who spent some time in the Kabul and Kandahar regions in 2007. His photos and detailed colors and markings notes form the basis of this new book, which will be invaluable to anyone interested in modern-day conflicts or modelers of modern military vehicles. The author is donating his royalties from this book to two service charities: Dick Taylor joined the British Army as a Junior Leader in 1976, and served as a tank crewman and commander in the 3rd, 2nd and 1st Royal Tank Regiments, reaching the rank of Warrant Officer Class One. He has served in many countries worldwide, including in Australia, Canada, USA, Egypt, India, Malaysia and South Africa. He has served operationally in Northern Ireland, Cyprus, Bosnia and Croatia, Macedonia, Kuwait and Iraq, as well as in Kosovo where he was awarded the Queens Commendation for Valuable Service. He was commissioned in 2000, and his specialties have included tank gunnery instruction, Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear operations, Psychological Operations, and lately, defense exporting. He has a First Class degree in History, and is currently reading for a Masters degree at Dundee University. He is married with two sons and lives in Blandford, Dorset. Future MMP books from Dick include a 4-part series on British Army vehicle camouflage and markings from 1903-2003, Warpaint (Vol 1 due Jan 2008), and a fascinating look at the uniforms and equipment of British AFV crews in WW2, The Men Inside the Metal (due Spring 2008). Dicks combination of active military experience and sound historical knowledge is unrivaled, and we are delighted to be able to offer his books to military enthusiasts everywhere.REVIEWSa wonderful compendium of facts within a personal conceptual framework that sweeps the reader along in the adventure that was auto-rotational flight... an essential addition to the understanding of this unique aviation niche.ROTOCRAFT, Volume 47, Number 6
