"The two volumes of The Yugoslav Wars are handy references that help make sense of the many military forces and their dress." --Military Trader "Overall this is a very detailed and informative publication from Osprey covering a conflict that stretched for much of the 1990s, yet one that is not strongly covered in the modelling world. Throughout this publication the authors provide the highest levels of detail and information backed up with a relatively detailed study of the overall situation these forces were involved in...This publication is suitable for Historians and Modellers alike with its unrivalled detail of unit formation/organisation, the history of the conflicts that took place and the superb colour plates and reference photographs...Highly recommended!" --Rob Harvey, Aeroscale (October 2006)
