Men-At-Arms Book Series
The Men-At-Arms book series has earned itself a reputation of authenticity and expertise while chronicling an enormous range of distinct periods of time and place in human history. Micheal G. Johnson and Jason Hook have certainly accomplished this same effect (along with illustrators Jonathon Smith and Richard Hook) with this series covering the main regional and tribal diversities within Native American history. These books are full of photographs, maps, and beautiful illustrations to enhance its very informative text. SC
