KIRKUS REVIEW

Good coverage of a popular service, with high concentration of drama and daring, overlapping only one section of the book report on P. 461 -- and more definitely of entertainment value. Exciting true stories of aerial combat, of air races, a number of which have appeared in periodicals. Among the authors are Quentin Reynolds, W. L. White, Eric Sevareid, A.J. Liebling. There's the Eagle Squadron of the RAF; the British Finucane; the Canadian air knight of Malta; the bombing of Germany; of Tokyo; an air duel with Bruno Mussolini; the Flying Tigers in Burma; the transatlantic ferry command; a miscellany of patrols, raids, rescues...A permanent record of the best air stories.
