Booklist Review

In spite of its coffee-table format, this is a worthwhile contribution to the literature on the great air battle, the fiftieth anniversary of which is this year. The text consists of the recollections of many surviving participants as well as historians' and aviation journalists' perspectives. The lavish illustrations are not only drawn from photo archives but include handsome color maps and newly commissioned color photos. The resulting book is both good to look at and useful to read, although its price may limit it to larger aviation and World War II collections. Index. --Roland Green
