Review:

This beautiful little book is a little like a compilation of pictures (mainly photographs) such as you might find in an issue of Health and Efficiency - the girls in the photos are mostly exquisite to look at, and it's small wonder the servicemen of the allied nations had them in their possession... It's a lovely book with some quite stunning ladies, but for me, it could have been much bigger (as in the number of pages)! Source: Books Monthly 17/02/2016
