The author has an impressive portfolio of military aviation history books to his name and this is a worthy addition to the list. Part of a series of books that feature comment from former pilots, there is a blend of interview and research material that produces a review of an aircraft with real depth. Illustration is by photo-plate sections with monochrome images. There are some familiar images, but most are rare and some have not appeared in print before. The author writes with affection for his subject and has produced an enjoyable and informative book. Not to be missed, strongly recommended.
