This is one of the most fun books I've seen in a long time. It's bright, it's colorful, it's imaginative and it's clever. The pictures get your imagination soaring. You could imagine that in an alternative world where steam ruled, this is exactly how the soldiers would have developed. I love that there are soldiers from all over the world with all kinds of weird and unusual weapons. I could just pour over the pictures taking in all the details and the pictures are very detailed. The combination of real uniforms with the steampunk additions just had me laughing out loud. These will be the basis for some Halloween costumes next year, I'm sure.
I love the descriptions of each soldier. They bring the pictures to life and give the history of the war and of each soldier type. The entire book is beautiful. Steampunk afficionados are going to have a field day with this one. Fun is the absolute best word for this book.
I received this book from Netgalley and appreciated the opportunity to give it an honest review.
