I used to read SOF back in the 1980's when I was in the Army.
I always liked Kokalis's weapon evals.
Is this book any good?
Is it just re-printed SOF articles?
Is it worth $45.00

In the first sentence it says "In this comprehensive anthology of Peter Kokalis' best articles from Soldier Of Fortune and Fighting Firearms". Sounds to me like it is a comprehensive anthology of Peter Kokalis' best articles from Soldier Of Fortune and Fighting Firearms magazines. That would make it old news and previously published articles he has written.

OT: I'm a subscriber to Soldier of Fortune, and I don't see Peter Kokalis' name in the section where they list name sof the editor & publisher etc. Also I don't James Pate's name either, he wrote a lot of those Dividian pieces where the govt made huge mistakes. Does anyone know what happen to those folks?

I have every issue of SOF dating from 1982 and every issue of Fighting Firearms that was published during it's short life. I am still putting this book on my must have christmas list because Kokalis is usually both entertaining and informative and digging through a few hundred magazines trying to find a particular article is not as much fun as everybody makes it out to be!

I've seen it and perused it some. My only complaint is that I can't own almost all of what's in there. Bums me out.
