KIRKUS REVIEW

The facts are here -- ""all that can be told"" -- in rather laborious style, but headlined and arranged in practical form for factual purposes. Headquarters, training, personnel, material, strategy and tactics, operation, intelligence, special commands:- this -- page by page -- comprises perhaps one third of the book, which is picture book size and shape. The balance takes each type of plane, combining descriptive text, full page and spot drawings in color, charts and diagrams, interiors, and silhouettes, in line -- all designed to give a quick view of the function and performance and appearance of the planes of the A.A.F. Paper and board binding, but fairly sturdy, with reenforced backbone. But oh for proof reading by someone who could spell.
