L016, AFVisual Pacific in Focus
by David E. Harper
Published by Letterman Publications, no ISBN, 60 pages.
Here’s a good selection of Pacific War photos, ranging from Shermans
and LVTs to Japanese tanks. There are even photos of Japanese armoured
river patrol boats in China – I hadn’t even known they had
such boats before.
Some shots are from official sources, and have been seen before though
rarely printed at this large size, but many are from veteran’s albums
and new to publication. I can’t resist singling out for mention
the M1 composite Sherman on page 9 with its added bustle rack, which would
be a simple addition to a suitable kit but change its appearance considerably.
Though most of the Japanese tanks are seen as knocked out they aren’t
all in bad condition, and even those that are completely wrecked remain
interesting since they’re new.
