In trying to track down this info. I have been looking at several

Apparently it's been reprinted four times although I can't see why.
A good many of the photos are not WWII vintage, but prewar. The

And before someone jumps on Tony as an author/publisher criticizing another, let me, as another author/publisher, that it ain't just competitive juices flowing. In fact, many of us believe that Tony showed admirable restraint!
