Mark Thomas, a veteran 20mm gamer and modeler from Oregon (US) told me some time ago that he was working on a history book illustrating scenes and information related to some of the most important battles of WW2 using 1/72 scale models, figures and scenery.
The book should now be finished maybe sometime late this year and he has some sample pictures from his book on the web, some of which can be seen below :
You can read some sample excerpts and see some more pictures from Mark's forthcoming book as posted by veteran 1/72 scale gamer and modeler David Reasoner on the Command Decision Test of Battle Forum on the following links
