Osprey's handy little "Bolt Action" wargaming titles continue with a handbook on the Armies of France and the Allies.

Chapters follow Osprey's proven prescription, summarizing unit structures, artillery, armor, support vehicles and combat theaters. Color uniform & equipment plates, action paintings, and models illustrate text.
