KIRKUS REVIEW

Excellent, with two flaws, -- no glossary, no index. Here is an analysis of the types rather than the models of aircraft which comprise our ""wings of defense"". The Fighters, the Bombers, the Naval Aircraft. Bombing, Paratroops, Aircraft manufacturing, Pilot training, Research, Maintenance training, Anti aircraft defense, Civil air defense -- broad coverage, with the stress on ""offensive defense"" points of view, and on the ultimate goal of the right blend of speed with weight carrying ability and low landing speed.
