KIRKUS REVIEW

Successor to Fighting Planes of the World, this record in pictures and text of fighting planes and pilots in action. A very comprehensive text goes quite completely into the men, the planes, the cooperative activities of the land forces and the observers. Then the details of bombers and bombing, with charts and diagrams and pictures showing cross sections of bombers --German, British, Italian. Tactics, armor and armament for the fighting and pursuit planes- and the actual process of fighting aloft. Night fighting and the new equipment, the Klystron ray, etc. Transport planes and the changes they have made in aerial combat. The American air force. A lot of information, graphically presented -- and a lot for the money.
